One is Enough Math Trade
- Jeff Bakalchuck(Boomer)United States
This Math Trade is open to all types of games, game accessories, and BGG-specific goodies(with limits), and limited numbers of non-BGG related items (see Restrictions, below).
We will be using, for the first time, TradeMaximizer's duplicate protection which you can use(it's totally optional) to prevent getting more than 1 of the same gam.
If you are new to Math Trades in general, please check Lindsey Dubb's Math Trade Guide http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/93555 for further information on how this works.

Deadline to Add Games: 9pm EDT on Tuesday August 28
Summary Posted: August 28 shortly after 9pm
Deadline to Submit Want Lists: 9 pm EDT on Thursday August 30.
Results posted: approx 11pm Thursday August 30 [/b]
Want lists should be sent to Boomer in a single GeekMail, and use a subject line of "MATH TRADE WANT LIST". The Summary will use a combination of the item number and abbreviated name to label entries in the Summary, i.e. if entry 18 is Power Grid the Summary entry will look like:
018-PGRID Power Grid
and the Want List submitted by the owner of Power Grid should look like
(Boomer) 018-PGrid : 371-Thurn 425-Magic
Note: Each want list begins with your username in ( ) followed by your item-number followed by a colon. The username and colon are required.
If you have multiple items up for trade, you must submit one want list for each item, but you can combine them into a single Geekmail. When the results are announced, item winners should contact their current owners, but owners may feel free to contact the winners if they want.
Here is an example of the new format for want lists, including the duplicate protection feature.
(Boomer) %Vegas : 0009-VEGAS 0015-VEGAS 0022-VEGAS 0107-VEGAS
(Boomer) %ALEA : 0105-PUERT 0510-FIFTH 0322-PRINC
(Boomer) 0020-CARCD : %VEGAS %ALEA 0063-NEXUS 0099-NEXUS
(Boomer) 0033-METRO : %VEGAS 0063-NEXUS 0099-NEXUS 0102-PGRID
In the above example, notice the username at the begining of each want list, this should help reduce errors when the master want list file is created. The 2nd thing to note is the : after the item number, this is for readability and to help eliminate wordwrap errors.
The first line in the want lists is an example of duplicate protection. Lets say there are 4 copies of Vegas Showdown and I don't want to receive more than 1. If I put all 4 on each want list, I may get more than 1 copy. So, to protect against that, I create a "dummy item" in this case %Vegas. You can name the dummy item anything you wish as long as it begins with a %.
Since %Vegas is treated as one item, it can only receive one item.
I then put %Vegas on multiple want lists but I can only get 1 item from it, thus I can only get 1 copy of Vegas Showdown.
You can group any combination of items in a dummy item, they don't all need to be the same game.
The 2nd dummy item shown above, %ALEA is an example of putting different games in one dummy item.
For the 2 copies of Nexus Ops, I listed both of them in each of my want lists, in this case I may end up with 2 copies of Nexus Ops.
As you can see, the duplicate protection does not need to be used for all games, you can turn it on for the games you don't want duplicates and not use it for games that you'd be happy with duplicates.
Lastly note that uppercase/lowercase does not matter.
I understand that all of this is new, so if you have questions, please ask.
