By adding an item to this list you agree to the following rules:
0. Stay informed
0a) Everyone is responsible for keeping up with the announcements and updates. I may send out GeekMails on occasion but the announcement thread is your primary source of official information regarding this trade.
1. Times and dates
1a) Item submission period: This trade list will be open to add and edit items until February 2nd @ 8pm (CST). Note that the time displayed in the OLWLG is the lower limit. Item submission will most likely be closed at some time very near 8. Items added after the OLWLG deadline are valid entries. However, do not plan on adding your items last minute since the list may close at any time after the deadline.
1b) Want list submission period: The want lists have to be created and submitted via the OLWLG until February 5th @ 8pm. Do not plan on submitting want lists last minute since the submission window may close at any time after the deadline. Have your want lists finished, submitted and confirmed before the deadline displayed in the OLWLG.
1c) Want list confirmation: You must send a confirmation text to have your list accepted. You will be provided a phone number via Geekmail to send a text containing your BGG user name. Any user that submits a want list, but fails to send a confirmation text to the number provided before the close of the submission period will have their want list deleted.
1d) After the results have been posted, everyone will have at least 24 hours to check the results for errors. Technical errors or mistakes within the responsibility of the organizer may cause a rerun of the trade in which case a new 24 hour period for checking the revised results will begin. Mistakes made by users while creating their want lists do not warrant a rerun of the trade and can not be corrected once the trade is resolved.
1e) Everyone is responsible to check their items, want lists and results in time before the respective deadlines. Please check your offered items for questions and comments before the item submission deadline. Please try to be available to answer GeekMails after the results have been posted.
2. Valid offers
2a) This trade is primarily about board games. All items must have an entry in either BGG, RPGG or VGG.
2b) An offer must not depend on third parties in any way. Do not offer items you don't possess at the time of posting them. This includes pre-ordered items that are promised to be delivered by the trade date.
2c) Gift certificates to TableTop are allowed. Be aware that by accepting a cash value you are conducting a direct sale and are subject to the associated 3% commission fee as required by the BGG Terms of Service. For details see Cash Value Trades in Math Trades.
2d) Money arbitrage is prohibited and will result in the incorrect want lists being omitted from the trade. Money arbitrage is defined as trading an item containing money for an item containing more money. The term "money" includes cash offers, PayPal transfers, wire transfers, gift certificates, etc.
2e) Game bundles, "sweeteners", and "Pick x out of Y" offers are allowed as long as the item description is unambiguous. In particular, an offer must not depend on unforeseeable circumstances in any way.
2f) There is no general item limit per user. However, keep in mind that you (or your representative) need to be able to bring all your traded items to TableTop.
3. Item descriptions
3a) If any component of a game is not in the same condition as it would be in a perfectly new and mint condition copy of the game, name it!
3b) Item descriptions must be accurate and unambiguous.
3c) For each item offered you must provide the following information:
Version / Year Published:
Image: Make sure to select the image actually corresponding to the offered version of your game.
3d) Provide a detailed description of your item's condition. Unless your item condition is "new in shrink", please use more than 3 words to describe it. A vague statement like "good" is completely useless to anyone but yourself.
3e) Do not assume that your own standards are true for everyone else. Only because you think that an issue is insignificant, it does not necessarily make it negligible for anyone else.
3f) Each offered item has to be checked for completeness unless it's still in its original shrink wrap.
3g) Comments on an item are not considered part of that item's description since they can be added and altered after the item submission period and thus may not appear in the OLWLG. Make sure that all information regarding your offer is given in the item description before the end of the item submission period (see paragraph 1a for the deadline).
3h) If you have questions about an item, use the comment function to post a comment on the respective item. Do this in time for the item's owner to be able to reply before the end of the item submission period (see paragraph 1a for the deadline). I encourage everyone to ask for a more detailed description in case you are not sure about an item's condition, language, version, etc. If your questions aren't answered to your satisfaction, do not add the item to your want lists.
3i) If you notice after the item submission period that you are not able to deliver an item as advertised in the item description, you have to withdraw that item from the trade (i.e. submit an empty want list for it).
4. Item description formatting / OLWLG
4a) Using the OLWLG is mandatory for this trade.
4b) For TableTop gift certificates, please use the generic item Outside the Scope of BGG. This may also be suitable for game bundles and 'Pick x out of Y' offers.
4c) Please include an altname tag in the item description of generic items. Otherwise they will not be displayed properly by the OLWLG.
4d) If you offer several games in one item, it is recommended to include them via GeekLink (Insert Geek Link -> Board Game) for the OLWLG to recognize them as additional offers.
4e) Do not use a game as your trade list item if that game is not part of your offer. Do not include a GeekLink to a game in your trade list item if that game is not part of your offer.
4f) The OLWLG will not be up to date with the trade list all the time. The synchronization has to be triggered manually by the math trade organizer from time to time. You can set the OLWLG to receive a notification about each synchronization event via GeekMail.
5. Editing and deleting items
5a) Do not delete items from the trade list after the item submission period (see paragraph 1a for the deadline) since this will affect the numbering of all of the following items and cause confusion and annoyance. If you change your mind about trading an item after the item submission period, submit an empty want list for the item.
5b) Deleting redundant/incorrect/obsolete items is encouraged during the item submission period (see paragraph 1a for the deadline).
5c) Do not make major changes to an item description. People may already have added the item to their want lists and not notice that the item description has changed. If you need to make major changes to an item description, please create a new item and delete the original one.
5d) You may want to offer your item up for auction/sale/trade in other places simultaneously. This is okay but if you sell or trade items elsewhere during the item submission period (see paragraph 1a for the deadline), please delete those items from the math trade.
6. Want lists
6a) By adding an item to one of your want lists you agree to accept it in exchange for your respective item. Check your want lists and all of the item descriptions thoroughly before finally submitting your want lists!
6b) All want lists have to be created and submitted via the OLWLG ("Submit Your Lists Here!" -> "Submit My Wants").
6c) Want lists may be edited and re-submitted any number of times during the want list submission period (see paragraph 1b for the deadline). After editing your want lists and saving the changes you have to submit them again to become effective ("Submit Your Lists Here!" -> "Submit My Wants").
6d) Make sure to re-check the descriptions of the items on your want lists thoroughly before finally submitting your want lists. Items you added to your want lists before the item submission deadline may have changed since then. I recommend creating your want lists only after the item submission period has ended. If you did not receive a confirmation geekmail from the OLWLG, your wishlist isn't submitted.
6e) You must send a confirmation text to finalize your wantlist. All participants will receive a geekmail from me with a telephone number. You must text your BGG username to that number in order for your wantlist to be accepted.
6f) Mistakes you make while creating your want lists do not warrant a rerun of the trade and thus can not be corrected once the trade is resolved.
6g) If you are not sure about how to properly implement duplicate protection (or anything else for that matter), please ask for help in the discussion thread. Do not just hope that it works the way you think it does because if it doesn't, there will be no way to correct it once the trade is resolved (see paragraph 6e).
6h) All want lists will be made public after the trade has been resolved.
7. Meeting at TableTop
7a) All participants are responsible for bringing their games to TableTop. . If you have a representative you trust, they may bring your games on your behalf. You are still responsible. Tabletop is gracious to host, but cannot be your proxy, and can't be responsible for your games.
8a) The organizer has the final say in all decisions and disputes.
8b) The trade will be resolved using TradeMaximizer 1.3a with official names and the following options: allow-dummies require-colons require-usernames linear-priorities. Everyone will be able to reproduce and verify the results using the published want lists and the same set of options.
8c) The BGG Trade Manager shall be used for the trade transactions. Cash value trades shall be conducted using the Geek Market as detailed here: Cash Value Trades in Math Trades
8d) Items that do not comply with the above rules may be omitted from the trade and will be deleted or treated as items with empty want lists. This may happen without further notice during critical phases of the trade (e.g. when a decision has to be made as soon as possible and there is no time to ask questions and wait for answers). Users who don't follow the rules may be suspended from the trade. The decisions made by the trade organizer are final in those cases.
Thank you very much for reading the rules and happy trading!
