Give To Game 2012 will be taking place in Austin, Texas on April 13-14, 2012. This will be our second crack at having a local math trade around the event, as the first one wasn't all it was cracked up to be.

*Rimshot*

Seriously. We traded 4 items last time. We can do better!

Request GeekList: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/65295/give-to-game-201...
Discussion Thread: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/article/8718782#8718782

Online Want List Generator use is required for creating your want lists. (please remember to tip JeffyJeff some GG for his work on the OWL!)

Key dates (all times CENTRAL TIME)

Open for posting games: Tuesday, March 13th, 9:00 pm to Tuesday, April 3, 12 noon.

Want list submission period: Tuesday April 3, 12 noon to Tuesday, April 10th at 12 noon.

Want lists and results will be publicly posted shortly thereafter.

Please note that errors made by you will not invalidate the results. You will be expected to honor your trades even if you made a mistake, so carefully review your lists before submitting them. You can make changes BEFORE the end of the submission period but not after it.

This event is open to anyone who wants to participate, but please note that this is a no-ship event. We will be meeting up on Saturday, April 14th at 6 PM 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 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.

These are the rules for the trade:

d10-1 This is a no-shipping event. All exchanges are to be made at Give to Game at 6 PM. Please try to not be late as the charity auction should be happening immediately afterward. If you cannot attend in person, you can still participate but you must find someone who is willing to act as you proxy at the convention, taking your games there for you and picking up your "winnings".

d10-2 Gift certificates, Geekgold (GG), DVDs etc are all permitted.

d10-3 Gift certificate and GG arbitrage are NOT allowed. (i.e. You cannot put someone else's gift certificate entry on the want lists for a gift certificate you are offering in an attempt to "trade up", the same is true for GG). Yon CAN swap GG for GCs and vice versa.

d10-4 Non-game entries must be added as "Outside the Scope of BGG" (game id 23953), Miscellaneous Game Merchandise (game id 22104) or "Miscellaneous Game Accessory" (game id 5985).

If you are offering an expansion for which there is no entry in BGG (for instance expansion cards handed out at Essen) and NOT the base game, please use "Miscellaneous Game Accessory" to help avoid confusion.

d10-5 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).

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.

d10-6 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 or language - 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.

This is a very easy thing to do. Just click on "Subscribe" under each of your entries. If someone adds a comment, you will receive a notification and a link directly to that comment.


Other useful information

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

This is my second math trade so I'm using what I'm comfortable seeing. It will be the USERS-TRADING metric because it potentially increases the number of people taking part who make at least one trade, while not affecting the overall number of trades. This means that for this particular event, the order of the items on your want lists makes NO difference.


Geekgold restrictions:

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


Want list submission

You can start creating your want lists any time after the start of the event.

Please note that it's best to work on your want lists 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.

Submissions may be made at any time after 12 noon on the 3rd. If you will be unavailable during the want list submission period but still wish to participate, contact me directly and we can discuss the possibility of you submitting early.

Remember that you may have saved your want lists, but they have NOT been submitted until you press the green button in step 4 and received a confirming Geekmail.

You are not obliged to trade anything you put up for offer. If you offer a game, but see nothing that you are willing to accept for it in trade, you can submit a blank want list for it, or not submit one at all. If, however, you do submit a want list for a game, then it is expected that you will honor any trade that the TradeMaximizer comes up with. You will not receive anything you did not list as acceptable for the game(s) you have offered, so it is important to check your want lists when they are posted publicly (see above dates), to correct any errors.

Please note: Sometimes real life intrudes on us unexpectedly. If I'm an hour late posting something, please bear with me. Running one of these can be a fair bit of work, and running it without the OLWLG is twice as much work.

So enter lots of items and have fun!

I think I've got it done. Results are up and it looks like we got a few trades.

Let me know if anything looks amiss and I'll see what I can do, but I think we had a lot more success than last time around!

You can see the outcome on [url=http://bgg.activityclub.org/olwlg/trades-summary.cgi?listid=138969#stoneart69]the results summary page. I've got your personal link set up here Michael, but if you look under the math trade name you'll see a link to the results.

Looks like you traded Gangster, Cold War and SW: Epic Duels and are receiving Ingenious, Jab and Arena Maximus.
