It's the NINTH ANNUAL nearly No-Limit No-Risk No-Shipping BGG.Con Math Trade!
I know that a lot of yall have been waiting patiently for this list to pop up. No more chatter, here's the rules.

Restrictions, Policy, Official Rules
Not much different from the last few years. I'll try to punch it up if you're rereading. As always, I reserve the right to break 1d6 of these rules.
This trade is open only to actual paying attendees of BGG.Con 2014. If something happens and you can't make it, the onus is still on you to trade that game. Find a proxy, or eat the shipping costs all ways. As always, I'm fine with full-disclosure proxies.
I do not plan to restrict duplicates in any way. One man's thrift is another man's trade fodder; but I do ask you to be reasonable, since I've got to answer questions about duplicate protection and the "COPIES" feature.
You can list as many games as you want. Again, be reasonable since people got to scroll through the list. You are still responsible to bring all of your successful trades to Dallas. Check with your airline for luggage and weight restrictions since it sucks. (I may FedEx or fly with mine, I don't know yet.) You must honestly and accurately list the condition and edition of your items; don't just say "like the picture" unless you took it. Play nice and be considerate to others. When in doubt, take pictures and be insanely specific about the most inconsequential of scuffs that only appear under ultraviolet.
Special cases on what you can list:
No cash. There's a lovely exhibitor's hall. Bribes (to me) are still welcome.
No Gift Certificates or Gift Cards. Against the spirit of this trade.
No Geekgold, unless as a sweetener.
RPGs of all kinds are welcomed, encouraged, and hoped-for.
Your Unpublished Prototype is always welcome and actively encouraged. Think of it as a free blind playtest.
Video games are allowed.
No garbage. To clarify: I know that we all have differing values and beliefs, and that we are all beautiful and unique snowflakes. But please don't list actual worthless things or badly damaged games. Be kind to your moderator's typing fingers. If you've got crap, try and give it away elsewhere.
Outside the Scope of BGG: I selfishly don't want to scroll past tons of non-game stuff; but this is a no-shipping trade. You can list non-game items (DVDs, clothing, weed whackers, kidneys, vinyl records, large home appliances, fine art, used socks, whatever), but you can only list one non-game item for every three real games you list. Use Outside the Scope of BGG for these things.
I will use the most recent version of TradeMaximizer unless someone invents a better way of doing things between now and then.
The use of JeffyJeff's Online Wantlist Generator is required to participate in the trade this year.
All wantlists are public.
Do not delete anything you add to this list. It is a hassle and headache for pretty much everyone- just change the item to indicate that it is no longer available for trade or and submit a blank wantlist.
I will ask for your cell phone number. I promise not to abuse your trust. This is totally optional but strongly encouraged. Even if you're great about trades, the RNG is fickle, as is con crud and human flakiness is infinite.
I will clarify and make changes as needed. Thanks for your participation and good luck!
