Use of the On-Line Want List Generator (OLWLG) is required for this event (please remember to tip JeffyJeff some GG for his support).
Key dates (all times are CENTRAL TIME)
Open for posting games: Now until Saturday, November 14th (10pm)
Want list submission period: Saturday, November 14th (10pm) until Tuesday, November 17th (10pm) - no extensions!
Results posted approx. an hour thereafter.
Please do not delete items or sweeteners once you have listed them.[/size] 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:
Only Geek Gold and Boardgames are allowed (eg. No Giftcards, DVD's Video games, RPGs, etc. - not even as sweeteners)
Only games, with an Average rating (not Geek rating) of 6.50 or higher will be allowed.
Geek Gold arbitrage are NOT allowed. If arbitage is found in the preliminary math trades results, the offending items will be removed and the results will be re-run. Otherwise, only errors by the moderator, will invalidate the results.
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.
To add sweeteners to an item, use the Insert Geek Link dropdown. Do NOT add links to any items unless you're including them as a sweetener.
All shipping costs are covered by the person listing the item. However, this is a U.S. only math trade. You must have a U.S. address to receive games. There will be no international shipping of items.
If you'd like to add anything that does not have an XGG entry or otherwise use an alternate name, use a board game entry and select Outside the Scope of BGG (id=23953). In the description for your item, include a title, formatted like this: +altname+Pick 2 of 5 Games!-altname- You MUST use this if your main item is a portion of an item with its own listing; for example, if you've got just the Scout part of Carcassonne: King & Scout as the Geeklist item, list it under Outside the Scope, not the K&S entry. (Please read this last part in the spirit of the rule; I hope it's clear that I'm not talking about CCGs or 3M games that are missing a single piece.)
I reserve the right to remove any entries at my discretion. Only mistakes made by me in my capacity as moderator will invalidate the results. If anyone (myself included) checks the wrong box in Step 4, that's very unfortunate, but the trade must go on.
Note: You will NOT be able to respond to comments in the GeekList once it is locked down and the submission period begins.
