"Nearly-No-Limit? What are you talking about, Mischa?" Answers below...
Deadline to add games: This Geeklist will close on All Saint's Day, the day after Halloween. Specifically at 11:59 PM Central time on 1 November 2007. (http://tinyurl.com/2pzprw, for the time-zone challenged) This means that you lucky stiffs who have gone to Essen should still be able to play.
Summary Posted: Friday, 2 November, 2007. Probably noonish, Central time.
Wantlists Due: Monday, 5 November, 2007. You've got all weekend! Don't be a slacker!
Results Posted: No later than Tuesday, 6 November, 2007.
Trade Happens: Saturday 15 November, 2007 at 1:00 PM.
Restrictions and Policy:
This Math Trade is open only to people attending BGG.Con 2007. If you want to participate and you're not going, either find a proxy or go back in time. If for some reason you can't make it, submit an empty want list. All shipping is on your head otherwise. It's harsh, but it's got to be so.
Duplicates? Bring 'em on. As long as you have extra copies, fine by me. Just because someone else listed fourteen copies of game X, you can post copy fifteen.
You can list as many games as you want. Remember, this is a no-shipping Math Trade. You are responsible for schlepping the games to Dallas. Check with your airline for weight restrictions, or rent a van.
Wantlist restrictions? Bah, humbug! I'm using TradeMaximizer, so we're not bounded by any of those limits.
Restrictions on items: Here's the limitations hinted at above, people. Games are in- anything that's got a GAMEID should be fair game, with four caveats:
Outside the Scope of BGG: Non-game items are allowed, but! You are limited to one non-game item for every two games you post. I will moderate with prejudice here, so don't be a jerk.
Miscellaneous Game Accessory: GeekGold may only be listed as a sweetener. This is a no-shipping math trade and I want you to take advantage of it. You'll be physically handing your game to your trade partner, and I don't want people to walk away literally empty-handed.
Unpublished Prototype: Always welcome. Don't be shy!
No money, period. Take it to the vendors.
To save my own annoyance with posting and load on the geek, the summary will be posted with the help of Google Docs. Yes, my own wantlists will be public.
Don't forget to tip!

1. Do not delete any item you add to this list. If circumstances dictate that you don't have a game available for trade, change its description to indicate that and submit a blank wantlist.

If you have no idea what a Math Trade is: In a nutshell, it's a way to trade a whole lot of games amongst a whole lot of people without requiring that they trade directly with each other. A computer algorithm ensures fairness and removes risk: you're only going to get what you say you want.
