Two things:

1) Please note that we're meeting a bit earlier than usual this time -- at 1:30 pm.

2) I've been asked to remind everyone about the presence of board game fakes. There are many titles that are currently being counterfeited and sold as legit (Azul, Terraforming Mars, Carcassonne, etc.). Please do not list counterfeit items and let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks Kenneth!

I know this is a dumb question, but how can one tell if the game is a counterfeit ?

I don't think there's one simple answer for that. However, I do know that there are several threads on BGG that provide guides for identifying them.

Have counterfeits been found in our local math trade prior to this or is this just a heads up that there are counterfeits out there?

A friendly reminder that submitting blank want lists for your items is, and always has been, an absolutely fine thing to do.

Not true, even the very expensive games must at minimum have my $30 cash item in their want list

Thank Kenneth for running this. Much appreciated.

I was wondering if I could see if there was any interest in future MTs where the results were posted on Thur night. Personally, I have a hard time making it out to Van for the trade and I usually need a proxy. When a trade ends at 10pm on Friday it makes it very hard to get everything together in time. It would also give a day for [eople to maybe do some side deals.

Thanks for listening and curious how others feel about this.

Thanks,
Matt

Thursday is a bit problematic for me personally, but I'm only one member of this. I'm ok with it going forward -- just remind me next time. If others want to chime in on this topic, I'd be interested in hearing them.

ATTENTION

Sorry everyone, but there are several instances of arbitrage in this math trade. I'm not sure why it's happened on this occasion. The rules expressly forbid this. The results are NOT final. The trade software will have to be rerun.

What does this mean? Sorry, even after googling, I still don't know what Arbitrage means? Especially in this context.

You can't trade $45 for $60. The results were showing such trades.

Woo! Thanks Kenneth!

only 2 trades for me this time around. Everyone send me trade offers so I can trade more games!

--

The room rental this time was a whopping $40! Maybe I'll put a can some where and people can throw change into it to help cover the room rental. Who knows though. I don't think I have any cans.

For those of who who track such things, the WANTS list on the OLWLG is inaccurate relative to the final results. The arbitrage related items were removed prior to the final results.

Wow that went amazingly well for me - got three amazing games that I've been meaning to add to my collection for quite some time!

Unfortunately, none of my Munchkin games got picked up even for 5 bucks sadly but if someone is interested in Munchkin Cthulhu or Munchkin Steampunk Deluxe, please send me a trade offer (straight game and/or cash swap or game + cash on my end - anything works!)

Cheers!
