This is a no-ship math trade. That means you don't have to pay shipping costs. It's a great way for you to trade with other local gamers, getting rid of those unwanted or underplayed games for other things you might want to try at no cost.

Want list submission period: Sunday, October 20th, 2019, 10:00 PM CST

I want everyone to not be afraid, so I will run point with as many of you as I can just to make sure you guys understand how things work. I will also contact you if something is off if I am able to catch it.
This is a No-Shipping Math Trade specifically for the Rockford Pegheads Gaming Group. THIS TRADE OCCURS AT 6PM AT OUR WEEKLY TUESDAY GAME NIGHT @ ROCKFORD POLICE HQ DISTRICT #3 IN THE HALL WHERE BOARD GAMES ARE PLAYED. Please arrive at 6 PM sharp so no one has to wait to get your games. Please come prepared knowing what games you are trading and receiving and who you will be getting them from. I recommend that you bring a piece of paper with your BGG ID on it to make things easier. I'll keep a list of the trade and will be happy to help during the time with any assistance needed.
Please do not delete items or sweeteners once you have listed them. You can always submit a blank want list for an entry if you've traded it away before the deadline.
OK - some simple rules - please take a few minutes to read them:
You are expected to describe, as accurately as is reasonably possible, the condition (components and box), language and edition of your item in the description. This includes sweeteners if they are physical items (i.e. not GG).
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" that doesn't mean that you shouldn't disclose any dings. It might not matter to you, but it matters to some people.
Non-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).
If you are offering an expansion for which there is no entry in BGG (for instance expansion cards handed out at Essen) and NOT the base game, please use "Miscellaneous Game Accessory" to help avoid confusion.
Please be sure to specify the edition/version/publisher of your item if there could possibly be any questions about it. Each game's BGG page has a 'Versions' section to help you determine which version you are offering. We RARELY have an issue but when we do, it's because the game's version is different on the listing than the one you receive. Do not be that person!
PLEASE don't add anything to this list unless you plan to attend the event or make arrangements for someone to drop off and pick up your games. Also please double-check and ensure the game you have listed for trade is still in your possession.
Finally - you are expected to periodically check during the item submission period, and preferably during the want list submission period, to see if anyone has commented on your entries. People often ask questions of items - most commonly because you have forgotten to state a version or language - and you should check in to address such questions in a timely manner should they arise, so that everyone then has the correct information available.
This is a very easy thing to do. Just click on "Subscribe" under each of your entries. If someone adds a comment, you will receive a notification and a link directly to that comment.
Want list submission
You can start creating your want lists any time after the start of the event.
Please note that it's best to work on your want lists and submit them early - you can always make changes and resubmit later. This will prevent you from being left out if you forget the deadline.
Remember that you may have saved your want lists, but they have NOT been submitted until you press the green button in step 4 and received a confirmation Geekmail.
You are not obliged 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, or not submit one at all. If, however, you do submit a want list for a game, then it is expected that you will honor any trade that the TradeMaximizer comes up with. You will not receive anything you did not list as acceptable for the game(s) you have offered, so it is important to check your want lists when they are posted publicly (see above dates), to correct any errors.
So enter lots of items and have fun!
