Please use this thread to discuss anything related to the currently running Worldwide Promo-only Math Trade

There's also a wantlist available.

Btw, if anyone has any suggestions about how this should go, please share. This is only my 2nd maths trade, so I'm still a bit new

Hmmm - how about magazine enclosures for games? GMT magazines include extra counters, for example, for games I don't own.

This includes games like Great Western by Martin Wallace found in Spielbox mags- correct?

Re: Worldwide Promo-only Math Trade Discussion Thread
Although not strictly promos, I have added the Memoir '44: Sword of Stalingrad French language combat cards. I figured that a French player might appreciate them as they can be used as part of any M44 game and are small enough to be considered promo-ish. Hope this is OK.

Just want to say that this is a great idea for an MT. I'll have to dig and see if I have anything to put in.

Re: Worldwide Promo-only Math Trade Discussion Thread
Just a heads up: RPG items can't be added to either the main list or the want list.

Good idea. Didn't know about that, but I'll split it between the two of them. So keep donating GG people!

Re: Worldwide Promo-only Math Trade Discussion Thread
Yeah if it's successful, I was thinking about running it a couple of times a year. We'll see how it goes.

I'm wondering if I'm running it too long, btw. Anyone have an opinion?

Re: Worldwide Promo-only Math Trade Discussion Thread
Maybe a bit long. I would imagine that most people who are goign to see it already have done. However, whether it is a good idea to change now is another issue.

Let me echo the congrats on thinking of a very good and useful trade list!

Re: Worldwide Promo-only Math Trade Discussion Thread
My thinking was that since Geeks literally the world over could participate, I should give more time than the normal week to get as many entries as possible. But maybe I was silly

Re: Worldwide Promo-only Math Trade Discussion Thread
I have a question on what constitutes a promo exactly. Are things we received in a swag bag at a con considered promos for the purposes of this MT? What about things we won from playing X # of a company's games at a con? (Like the various Settlers of Catan maps you can get)

I just want to make sure I don't put up something that isn't allowed.

Re: Worldwide Promo-only Math Trade Discussion Thread
I'd say those are fine. I'm not too picky about it, really. The main thing is if you're willing to ship it to the other side of the world paying shipping yourself, and it's game related, go for it. For instance, if I can find 'em, I'll probably list the Carcassonne Gummi-Meeples I got at Essen a couple of years ago. Not edible anymore, but certainly cool

I'll trade for that!


I agree that it seems like it's too long. Maybe have a longer than normal want list submission window to make up for the fact that people are in different timezones, but around a week is probably good for general submissions.

Are promotional cards (alternate art, alternate foil treatments...) from Magic: The Gathering allowed? (acquired by playing in tournaments)

This geeklist is a great idea! Low costs and other great benefits.

Doesn't anyone want to add the Mr. Jack Pocket promo expansion?
