It just occurred to me that I haven't run a non-local math trade in over four months, and there's just enough time to correct that before the end of the year.

This will be a short duration math trade, lasting just days. Two days to add items and two more to do your want lists. That's it.

Trade Geeklist: http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/62212

Use of the On-Line Want List Generator (OLWLG) is required for this event (please remember to tip JeffyJeff some GG for his support).

If you have never used this tool before, please read this: http://boardgamegeek.com/wiki/page/OLWLG

There is also a cool video guide by boathouselooper here...

If you're still unsure, feel free to ask questions in the discussion thread.


Key dates (all times are CENTRAL TIME)

Note that all times are in the morning. This is a departure from the normal evening deadlines.

Open for posting games: Monday, December 27th (10am) until Wednesday, December 29th (10am)

Want list submission period: Wednesday, December 29th (10am) until Friday, December 31st (10am) - no extensions!

Results posted within half an hour thereafter.


Please do not delete items or sweeteners once you have listed them. You can always submit a blank want list for an entry if you've traded it away before the deadline.

==============

OK - some simple rules - please take a few minutes to read them:


d10-1 Any items, other than cash, are allowed - as long as they are legal to transport. If you honestly think you have something people might trade for, please feel free to offer it..

d10-2 Gift certificate and GG arbitrage are NOT allowed. Neither are cash offerings.

d10-3 Non-game entries must be added as "Outside the Scope of BGG", "Miscellaneous Game Merchandise" or "Miscellaneous Game Accessory" and must include the +altname+ brief description -altname- format in the description of your item.

d10-4 You are expected to describe, as accurately as is reasonably possible, the condition (components and box), language and edition of your item in the description. This includes sweeteners if they are physical items (i.e. not GG).

Please do not use terms like "as pictured" and "players copy" to save time. Using those terms is fine, but NOT as a substitute for the rule above.

For games not brand new (in shrink) you must inventory the game's components and list anything missing. Do not assume it's complete. Also, remember that just because something is "new in shrink" that doesn't mean that you shouldn't disclose any dings. It might not matter to you, but it matters to some people.

Similarly please do not add games you do not currently have in your possession as you can't vouch for their condition. Even a new game might arrive damaged.

d10-5 You are required to cover shipping to others in your country. Please take this into account when making up your want lists. You are not required to ship outside of your own country but your shipping restrictions outside of your own country must be clearly stated and if you are not covering full shipping elsewhere, then you must state precisely how much of the shipping you will cover.

Exception: Shipping to HI and AK is voluntary for U.S. participants, although I ask that you do consider doing so.


Any ambiguity shipping abroad will be interpreted as generosity on your part. This means that if you don't include a shipping policy, then it is assumed that you will ship anywhere in the world for free!

d10-6 Sweeteners are to be listed using the "Insert Geek Link" dropdown or you can manually insert the GAMEID using BGG formatting. If you don't use this format your sweeteners won't show up in the OLWLG properly.

d10-7 If you've been reported to me as a bad trader, you cannot participate. If you try to, I will remove your entries.

d10-8 Please do NOT include links to other games in your entry unless you are actually including them as a sweetener, as this is displayed in a misleading manner by the OLWLG.

d10-9 If you feel the need to use them, please keep disclaimers short and to the point so they don't make things hard to read. If you need to use a longer disclaimer, please include a link to it in each of your entries instead of copying the whole thing into each entry - thanks.

d10-1d10-0 Finally - you are expected to periodically check during the item submission period, and preferably during the want list submission period, to see if anyone has commented on your entries. People often ask questions of items - most commonly because you have forgotten to state a version, language or shipping policy - and you should check in to address such questions in a timely manner should they arise, so that everyone then has the correct information available.

You will NOT be able to respond to comments in the GeekList once it is locked down and the submission period begins.

Other useful information

Software Used: TradeMaximizer 1.4 with duplicate protection. SEED=1234567, ITERATIONS=100, METRIC=USERS-TRADING


Geekgold restrictions:

Users may not post more geekgold than they currently have. Geekgold arbitrage is not allowed.

Please note that it's best to work on your want list and submit them early - you can always make changes and resubmit later. This will prevent you from being left out if you forget the deadline.

Also: Creating want lists is not the same as submitting them. To submit them you will need to click on the "Submit My Wants" button. If you're not sure how to find this, consult the documentation referenced above or ask in the discussion thread.


When you submit your want lists, you will receive a confirming GeekMail. If you don't get one, your want lists haven't been submitted. Your want lists in the GeekMail may be truncated - this is fine.

Thanks for reading to the bottom here - you may be in a minority.

Please enter lots of items and have some fun with this. Good luck!

Re: Out With The Old, In With The New - a short unrestricted math trade
Some notes:

1) Please do NOT add things to this list if you have ordered or traded for them and not received them. You cannot be certain an item will arrive undamaged and therefore can't make promises as to its condition. I decided to add this restriction after ordering something as a gift for someone before the holidays and receiving a dinged copy from a retailer.

2) Please note the short duration. This event ends on Friday at 10 in the morning - Central Time. My apologies to Lorna and others who asked for a longer event, but this timeframe fits really, really well into my work schedule - as in I took the rest of this week off and am dedicating it to you fine people (well, perhaps "dedicating" is too strong a word, but you get the point)

3) This isn't listed in the OLWLG yet because I forgot to ask Jeff ahead of time. blush I will rectify that now, but I don't know when he'll be able to add it.

Thanks Kevin. I tend to cut and paste my header from the geeklist and change the link. I put the right number but didn't change the link from "thread" to "geeklist". It should be OK now.

Re: Out With The Old, In With The New - a short unrestricted math trade
If I state that a game is coming from someone else, is that fine?
I arranged to not have it shipped to me in case I got it from my Secret Santa, and so would like to trade the duplicate copy on.

I decided not to, even though my own wants tend to be a little restricted these days, because the period to add games is only 48 hours. But if you happened to mention that you wanted something here...

I don't think that I can let it in this time Andrew. I was quite explicit in the rule.

Were this a longer event (and I will do this next time), I would amend the rule to allow it if the person listing the item accepted full responsibility for the condition, even if it were incorrectly described to them in an earlier trade, but as this is such a short event I really don't want to mess with the rules unless it's absolutely necessary.

Okay, no problem. For some reason, I thought that when I first looked at the list, I saw it as just a list of 3 "optional but recommended" points or something.

Oh, and 7 Wonders, Hive (bakelite edition), War of the Ring: Battles of the Third Age, or Catacombs would all be welcome additions.
