The 2020 Fire & Ice convention (in Manitowoc, WI) is fast approaching, and our tradition is to have a no-ship math trade (that makes 13 years we've been doing this). Past years' trades have been hugely successful - last year we had over 800 items and almost 27% of those traded!

This is a no-ship math trade. That means you don't have to pay shipping costs. It's a great way for you to trade with other local gamers, getting rid of those unwanted or underplayed games for other things you might want to try at no cost.

Even if you can't make it to the con, there are plenty of us who attend and we will be more than happy to be your proxy at the exchange - although it's always great to see you there.

If you don't know how a math trade works, please feel free to ask here, and we can talk you through the basics!

Full rules are posted in the header of the "Trade Geeklist" (link below).

Request GeekList: Fire & Ice 2020 - The Math Trade - Request List

Trade GeekList (where you add your items): Fire & Ice Convention 2020 - The Math Trade



Open for posting games: Wednesday, January 22nd, 10pm to Sunday, February 9th, 10pm.

Want list submission period: Sunday, February 9th, 10pm to Monday, February 17th at 10pm.

Want lists and results will be publicly posted shortly thereafter.

This event is open to anyone who wants to participate, but remember that this is a no-ship event. We will be meeting up on Saturday, February 22nd at 5pm to exchange games traded and you'll either need to be in attendance or have someone proxy (drop off and pick up) for you at the meet-up. Please make sure that you're there or someone is there for you.


Please note: Sometimes real life intrudes on us unexpectedly. If I'm a little late posting something, please bear with me.

I find your lack of faith disturbing. The circle is now complete. When I left you I was but the learner. Now I am the Game Master.

Re: Fire & Ice Convention 2020 - The Math Trade
A BIG thank you goes out to you, Jack.
For your time and service being the moderator again.
It does spark new gamers to the hobby and helps refresh some of us veteran gamers too.
I for one look forward to this time of year and to see everyone again at the convention.

Keep gaming!!

PS Welcome to any new Math Traders

Re: Fire & Ice Convention 2020 - The Math Trade
Prior to last year's convention, I commissioned a Fire and Ice microbadge Microbadge: Fire & Ice Convention attendee
Unfortunately, it didn't get completed until March or April. Charlie & Mike have since picked one up. They cost just 8bag & I invite everyone to get one...our 'purchases' help the artists reach their design goals.

Right? Not nearly as delicious as corn on the cob.

Although Abecorn is better for shipping labels than corn on the cob is... (that might be the only count on which Abecorn beats corn on the cob)

That was more a sort of general observation - I sometimes get a better shipping rate from them for things like PiFF and auctions.

Re: Fire & Ice Convention 2020 - The Math Trade
First time on the math trade, there's a video on how to use a want list generator, but i don't see a link to one on this event? Am i missing something? Or is that posted later to use?

Hi Luke! Welcome...

There's never a video for a specific event. If you have specific questions, feel free to post them here or send them to me.

Definitely something wrong. I'm sure jeffyjeff is aware, but I'll dig around.

Hmm, appears to only be an issue with the F&I math trade - other trades up there are showing items. Jack - not sure if rerunning the sync will fix, but might need to contact Jeff if not.

Fetching game data for 567 new game id's found in this math trade

Notifying 2 users of the 447 new items

There are 447 total items listed so far.

Yesterday or the day before, I tried doing a resynch and it couldn't connect to BGG at the time. There must be a bug in the OLWLG that wipes out the entire listing if it fails to connect.

It should be OK now.

Sorry - running a few minutes late here.

The list is locked and you can submit want lists whenever you want.

Please post here if you have any issues...

You create your own by clicking on the link that's the name of the math trade in the OLWLG.

You do not have access to see anyone else's, of course.
