Discussion Thread (to discuss issues related to this math trade): Fall Granite Game Summit 2016 No Ship Math Trade - Nashua, NH (Discussion)
Request List (to request items that you would like to see people list in the math trade): Fall Granite Game Summit 2016 No Ship Math Trade - Nashua, NH (Request List)



Rules

1. Use of the On-Line Want List Generator (OLWLG) http://bgg.activityclub.org/olwlg/ is required for this event.

2. Board and card games, BGG-related items (including Geek Gold), and gaming accessories are allowed in this math trade.

3. Cash and gift cards are NOT allowed in this Math Trade.

4. You must describe, as accurately as possible, the condition of both the components and box, language and edition of your item and any sweeteners. You must also inventory the game's components and list anything missing and/or damaged. If you do not, the game is expected to be complete, in like-new condition and be the most recent English edition.

5. Sweeteners are to be listed using the "Insert Geek Link" dropdown or you can manually insert the GAMEID using BGG formatting. If you don't use this format your sweeteners won't show up in the OLWLG properly. Do NOT list any item, using a Geek Link if that item is itself not included in the offering. The OLWLG will pick this up as an item that is being included. Similarly, if you are listing something which is a component, promo, or accessory of a game, list it either with its own BGG entry or using “Outside the Scope of BGG”. DO NOT LIST IT AS THE ITEM, IF YOU DO SO THE WANTLIST FOR THAT ITEM WILL BE BLANKED TO AVOID CONFUSION.

6. You are required to periodically check your entries for comments and respond to them appropriately. The OLWLG will let you know if any of your items have unanswered comments. If you need to add a comment which can in any way be construed as "lessening" the value or desirability of the game, you should instead edit the entry to blank it out and re-enter it. This also goes for edits of the main item. Any downgrades of an item after it has been posted will not be tolerated and may result in that item's want list being blanked by the moderator, at the moderator's discretion.

7. Only errors by the moderator will invalidate the results. In the case that there is a problem after the results are posted, the trade will be re-run with the issue addressed.

8. No geekgold arbitrage. You may not put geekgold on the want list for your geekgold entry. Any occurrences of arbitrage in the end results will result in that user's entire wantlist for all entries to be removed.

9. PLEASE BE AWARE THAT ENTERING INTO THIS MATH TRADE IS A COMMITMENT TO TRADE THE ITEMS THAT YOU ARE INDICATING YOU ARE WILLING TO TRADE FOR YOUR ITEM. IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO DOUBLE CHECK DUPLICATE PROTECTION AND CHECK BOXES. IF YOU ARE NOT WILLING TO TRADE ONE OF YOUR ITEMS FOR ANOTHER ITEM, DO NOT INCLUDE IT IN YOUR WANTLIST. THE RESULTS ONCE POSTED ARE BINDING.

10. If circumstances arise that prevent you from being present at the trade execution time, you can have a proxy execute your trades for you, or you are responsible for any shipping costs and logistics for your trades. Please do not enter this trade if you are not 100% certain that you will be an attendee of Granite Game Summit.

TradeMaximizer 1.4 with duplicate protection will be used

This is a crayon rails (Empire Builder family) game set in West Virginia. It is (of course) smaller than other such games and has some play differences, e.g. every card has a coal load but coal loads need to be generated by players building to mine spaces.

This was made by Mayfair in small quantities for a museum exhibit back in 1991 and is consequently extremely rare.

This copy is generally in good shape and is quite playable. It also has extra laminated copies of the card sheet so each player can have one (instead of using a deck of actual cards players roll dice and reference this sheet). The flaws:

1. The crayons are missing. Crayons from any other set will work fine, as will various kinds of erasable pens.

2. A few of the bills (standard Empire Builder money) have been wrinkled. The rest appear unused.

3. One each of three of the railroad contract sheets is missing (used by a previous owner). There are still four copies of each of these and five of the fourth railroad. One or two of the remaining sheets have minor marks on the edges. These are used to track the "cards" and available coal loads each player has - they can easily be copied (permission to do this is given in the rules).

4. The outside of the tube has some water damage and some tape was applied to this area. The inside was not affected.

The pictures are of this copy - you can click through to see larger versions.

Small World, Schmall World. How about a game where you can actually make out which terrain is which and easily see everyone's pieces on the board?

This is the second English edition, aka the one where the English rules aren't full of holes; the first English edition had awful rules (and at least one counter error).

It's been played but is complete and in very good condition. The box has minor shelfwear.

This is an Ishi Press Go board. It is NOT a complete game - it is just a board (it was sold that way - you buy the stones separately). It is a 15mm-thick Katsura-wood board. It has not been used. The cardboard storage box has some scuffing.

It looks pretty similar to the one in the picture, and might even be the same board; the one in the picture is from a full Ishi Press set.

This is a set of two of the Kosmos boardgames produced as tie-ins for the Lord of the Rings movies:

1. Der Herr der Ringe: Die Gefährten

2. Der Herr der Ringe: Die Zwei Türme


Both have been played once or twice, I think. The components for all of them are in very good condition. The box for the Fellowship game has a little damage on one corner.

Both games include printouts of English translations and are not difficult to play with those in hand (there isn't much card text).

This is an old German abstract strategy game. Aficionados like it a lot - see Eamon Bloomfield's review - but I am not an abstract strategy person so am not likely to play it much.

The rules are in German but English rules are available on the game page. The board has a little wear around the edges of the folding sections but is perfectly usable. The pieces are fine. The rules have wear and a few small stains. The box has wear and some small torn swatches, but is intact.

Board Game: Lords of Creation

Two games where the players are competing deities:

1. Lords of Creation, an old Martin Wallace design; it's a multi-player game in which players are gods trying to get as many followers as possible.

This is the second edition, in color. It's been punched but used very little, so the components are in fine shape. The box has some light spotting. English and German rules.

2. Gods. Here players are also gods controlling followers, but in this game the players get to design their own races of followers using cards. The landscape being fought over can change during the game, since some followers might have powers such as summoning rain to cause floods, etc.

This is an Israeli production and is next to impossible to find in the US. (All the pictures on the game page are of this copy.) On the other hand, I believe that the recent release Athlas: Duel for Divinity is a remake of this game. On the other other hand, Athlas is a bit pricey for a two-player game (Gods is playable by two or three, it says) and seems to have some production issues.

The rules are in Hebrew, but an English translation is provided and the cards are in English. Now, the game has some issues condition-wise. The box and board have spotting. The insert (which had a LOT of spotting) is gone. The counters are unpunched. The cards are very poor quality and despite being unused show wear, but since they are not randomized, this is not really an issue. (Players each get a set of cards and choose from them to create their followers.) If you don't like using a board which has spotting (I wouldn't blame you), note that it's a small, simple board, so making a copy wouldn't be hard. And, it has exactly the same layout as the Lords of Creation board, so you could always toss the board and use that one for both games.

This is by Karl-Heinz Schmiel (designer of Die Macher, Tribune, etc.). It is an evil memory game, which while aimed at children is quite challenging enough for adults, believe me. The components are in good shape. The box and insert have noticeable wear but are intact. It includes an English translation and the components are language-neutral.
