Ottawa/Gatineau No Ship Math Trade (Nov/Dec 2017)

*** Please bear with me as this is the first Math Trade that I organize. Also thanks to Mooken from which I plagiarized his No Ship Math Trade as a template for this math trade. ***

Math Trades provide gamers with a way to trade away unwanted games for other players' unwanted games. All participants submit their list of games available for trade, and which titles they're willing to received in return for each submitted game.

The Math Trade will be conducted using the Abecorn Math Trade tool, accessible at You will need to create an account on Abecorn and you can link it with your BoardGameGeek account. If you are not yet a BoardGameGeek user, you will require a BGG account to participate in the Math Trade.

Log into Abecorn and sync your account with BGG; this may take several minutes.
