This math trade is for those attending The Gathering of Friends in 2009. Only those who will be in attendance should participate. Anyone who ends up not attending will be responsible for _all_ shipping charges (i.e., both directions).

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.

Important notice:

Please do not delete any items from the geeklist!

If you no longer wish to trade an item, simply add a comment saying that you will be submitting a blank want list. Deleting items makes it extremely difficult for those generating their want lists as they go, and for the moderation of the math trade. Thanks!

Dates:

Deadline to add games: 7:00 PM Eastern Time on Friday, March 20th
Want Lists Due: 7:00 PM Eastern Time on Friday, March 27th.
Results Posted: Later in the evening on March 27th
Trade Happens: Friday, April 10th at the Gathering (Alan will schedule a time for the exchange)

We will be using Jeff Michaud's OLWLG (On-Line Want List Generator) for both generating and submitting want lists - see: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/159648 if you aren't familiar with the tool.

Restrictions and Policy:

This Math Trade is open only to people attending The Gathering of Friends 2009

Duplicates: Allowed.

Maximimum number of items listed: As many as you're willing to haul to Columbus.

Wantlist restrictions: None (we'll be using TradeMaximizer, which doesn't require them).

Priority: I will use scaled priorities. From a user point of view, this simply means that games should be listed in the order of your interest; however, the prioritization is simply a tie-breaker.

What's TradeMaximizer: See http://www.boardgamegeek.com/wiki/page/TradeMaximizer. Or, in less detail - it's software for running math trades that finds an optimal solution in minimal time.

I will be using the following options:

SCALED-PRIORITIES
ALLOW-DUMMIES
REQUIRE-COLONS
REQUIRE-USERNAMES

The use of ALLOW-DUMMIES allows for duplicate protection. Please read Jeff's thread on the OLWLG to see how to create duplicate protection, and let me know if you have any questions. For a step-by-step guide to duplicate protection, see: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/32005

For an explanation of SCALED-PRIORITIES, see http://www.boardgamegeek.com/article/1710704#1710704. It's worth noting that scaled priorities tend to somewhat favor longer want lists. (I believe this is a good thing because longer want lists generate more trades.)

For any questions around formatting a want list, particularly if you're new to math trades, please mail me - I'll be more than happy to help.

Restrictions on items: Only games are allowed as main items. Other items are allowed as sweeteners; cash and gift certificates are _NOT_ allowed as sweeteners.

Please describe the condition of your items, and note the language.

How to add games to the math trade: Click on "Add Item" at the bottom of the header, choose "Game", and either add the number for the game on BGG or click on the magnifying glass then type the name of the game, selecting it from the list if there are multiple matches.

Important links:

And discussion or requests should be posted as comments to this geeklist. I will not be setting up either a discussion thread or a request list. Do note that OLWLG does show which items are wanted but not being offered.

For more details or math trades, check out Lindsey's Guide to Math Trades: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/93555; it's somewhat dated, but covers the general concept quite well.

Also available is the Math Trades for Dummies primer: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/287152

The Geek? Yes, it's a good site. But - ah! You should have seen it before the rebranding! It was legible and a joy to read! All gone now, sadly, and so (mostly) am I because of it ...

I'm sorry, I cannot read this site regularly while the intense white background is in effect. I have eye health issues, and this is painful. I'll still make brief visits, largely for trades and rules questions, but my socializing here is done for now

Excellent condition - played once. Any square cornered pieces have been clipped using a clipping jig - this is a very good thing.

Big, beautiful, roll-and-move children's game. The main choices in the game involve whether or not to take shortcuts. In German, with English rules printout. Components are language independent.
