Does seem quiet, i've gone for my first ever cash offer to try and cheaply grab a couple i've been after for a while as it's a smaller list.

You never know.

I find that cash works well at the moment Mike


I want to list "Im in a duo acoustic band, and I'll write and record you a 3 minute Acoustic Guitar song on ANY topic of your choosing"

I think it might be a laugh and a bit of fun, but I'm worried someone will take offense or it will cause aggro some how.

Thoughts?

For future reference would anyone be interested in book tokens?

I have an outlet i can pick them up cheaply in, so next time i might put a few various deals up with them as they are full cash value in lots of book shops.

Would it be worth me listing some World of Warcraft trading cards? I've got several hundreds sitting around here.

I can give a list of rares if anyone is interested

Jim, there's plenty of MTG cards on the list already so I don't see why not.

Mike, whilst I personally wouldn't go for book tokens I could see others going for them, particularly as sweeteners.

Sam, the worst thing that could happen is that you offer it and nobody lists it as one of their wants. Actually, it could be a good thing to offer if there's ever a charity auction again.

I seem to remember August being quiet last year. I think it's part holidays, and part people waiting for Essen and other cons. Once new releases start hitting the market and swelling people's collections more stuff will be making its way onto Maths Trades.

Submissions have been activated on the OLWLG.

Please recall that you will receive a geekmail after you successfully submit your wantlists. If you haven't received such a geekmail, you haven't submitted them! Also, please remember to *resubmit* your wantlists if you alter them after submission.

Quick recap of all last Trade's discussion:

* If you didn't get a confirmation Geekmail, you didn't submit; try again!
* Choose carefully, the trade loop (should|will) not be rerun!
* Pack even more carefully!!!

Mine's in, now I just have to leave it alone until next week...

Do I remember reading on the last UK Math Trade that you don't usually use "Priorities"? I just gave all my wanted games values in order of preference before I submitted my list, just in case.

As I understand it, they can come into play, but are usually only considered if there's a tie between trade loops of equal length.

It's worth doing, but the program won't bust a gut to get everyone their first choice.

I will also add that I am actually moving house tomorrow and won't be set up online at the new place until the middle/end of the week, so please give me a couple of days to get back to you if I do manage to get a trade...

Note:

Emergency Donwtime

Because of this, I might extend the wantlist submission deadline by another day. This will depend upon when the shutdown (i.e. going offline) occurs. If it's before 10pm tonight, I will do the extension. Just trying to be fair to all involved in this trade, and I thank you for your consideration. (The shutdown is obviously out of my control.)

Of course we all know that what will actually happen is that the 10pm deadline will pass without incident, Russell will run the Trade, which by some miracle will produce high value trades across the board. Everyone will be overjoyed with what they receive, no-one will complain, there'll be no need for a re-run, and we will be joined as one in marvelling at the perfection of how the trade has worked out.

Russell will have copy-and-pasted the results into the browser and will be about to press SUBMIT...

THEN we'll get the emergency downtime.

The results are run offline, so no worries on that regard.

The most awesome thing about the Beta geek website?

It is up when the main BGG is down I have no idea if this message will make it through... but looks like I have 2 trades this time so that's good.
