The use of the Online Want List Generator is required
for creating your want lists. Please remember to tip
JeffyJeff some GG for his support, as without his work,
this math trade could not take place.

Please note that errors made by you will not invalidate the results. You will be expected to honor your trades even if you made a mistake, so carefully review your lists before submitting them. You can make changes BEFORE the end of the submission period, but not after it.
This event is a local, no-ship math trade open to anyone who wants to participate. If you are from outside the Madison area, please be sure you can attend the trade date or arrange for a courier/proxy before listing.The Rules Tome(Please take a few minutes to read them)
This is a no-shipping event. If you cannot attend in person, please find someone who is willing to act as your courier/proxy at the face-to-face trade.
This is an unrestricted Math Trade... All board games, RPG items, miniatures, game accessories, promos, gift certificates/cards (FLGS and OLGS), video games, toys, and Geekgold are permitted as items for trade. Cash is not allowed.
Please note that there is a BGG policy in regards to the exchange of Gift Certificates/Gift cards. The recipient of the certificate/card must pay BGG a 3% sales fee on the value of the card. This is a BGG policy and must be followed if the guild and particular trader wants to continue MTs on BGG. For more details, please read Cash Value Trades in Math Trades (and how to make a geek market listing for them)
Gift certificate and Geekgold arbitrage are NOT allowed. (i.e. You cannot put someone else's gift certificate entry on the want lists for a gift certificate you are offering in an attempt to "trade up", the same is true for Geekgold). You CAN trade Geekgold for a Gift certificate (s), and vice-versa.
If, when the trade is run, there is a case of arbitrage, that user and all their items will be removed from the trade, and then the trade will be re-run.
Also, be cautious when using the OLWLG auto-check feature. It is not aware of the rules against arbitrage and will check boxes that may result in arbitrage. It is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to review the checks that the auto-check feature generates.
Items without BGG game entries must be added as "Outside the Scope of BGG" (game id 23953), “Miscellaneous Game Merchandise” (game id 22104) or "Miscellaneous Game Accessory" (game id 5985) and must include the +altname+ brief description -altname- format in the description of your item.
If you are offering an expansion for which there is no entry in the BGG database and NOT the base game, please use "Miscellaneous Game Accessory" (game id 5985) to help avoid confusion.
You are expected to describe, as accurately as possible, the condition (components and box), language, and edition of your item in the description section. This includes sweeteners if they are physical items (i.e. not Geekgold).
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" doesn't mean that you shouldn't disclose any box dings/damage.
Please subscribe to each item that you list. You are expected to periodically check your listed items and respond to any questions that others may have concerning your item.
Just click on "Subscribe" under each of your entries. If someone adds a comment, you will receive a BGG notification and a link directly to that comment.
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 properly show in the OLWLG.
Please do NOT include links to other games in your entry unless you are actually including them as a sweetener, as this is displayed in a misleading manner by the OLWLG.
If you feel the need to use them, please keep disclaimers short and to the point.
Items may be edited after listing. Should changes to a listing be made, the OLWLG will alert all users who have already selected the item as a want. It is THEIR responsibility to review and accept the changes (or remove the item from their want list).
If you wish to remove an item for consideration, delete the item from the geeklist or just submit a blank entry against this item in your want list.
Subscribe to any and all items you are interested in, rather than writing down the number. If you write down the number and an item gets removed, the number will change.
It is customary to create official trades via the BGG trading system and then leave feedback for each other.
Other useful information
Software Used: TradeMaximizer 1.4 with Duplicate Protection. SEED=20180304, ITERATIONS=200, METRIC=USERS-TRADING
I have chosen the USERS-TRADING metric because it potentially increases the number of participants trading who make at least one trade, while not affecting the overall number of trades. This means that for this particular event, the order of the items on your want lists makes NO difference and there are no PRIORITIES set.
Users may not post more Geekgold than they currently have. Geekgold arbitrage is not allowed.
Want list submission
Remember that you will receive an email in your BGG inbox if you properly completed the submission of your want list.
Please note that it's best to work on your want lists and submit them early - you can always make changes and resubmit before the deadline.
Creating want lists is not the same as submitting them.
Remember that want lists have NOT been submitted until you press the green “Submit My Wants List” button in Step 4 and receive a confirmation Geekmail. If you didn’t receive a confirmation Geekmail, then you didn’t complete the process and nothing of yours will be traded.
You are not obligated to trade anything you put up for offer. If you offer a game, but see nothing that you are willing to accept for it in trade, you can submit a blank want list for it.
If, however, you do submit a want list for a game, then it is expected that you will honor any trade which the TradeMaximizer software generates.
Only errors by the moderator will invalidate the results. In the case that there is a problem after the results are posted, the moderator will attempt to moderate and resolve the issue and isolate the issue to the affected parties (trade chains).
