Math Trade for Strategicon's GAMEX 2010 attendees
- Burt Hunt(burthunt)United States
Here is a No-Risk, No-Shipping Math Trade for those of us planning to attend Strategicon's GAMEX 2010 over Memorial Day weekend May 28 - May 31, 2010 at the Sheraton Gateway Hotel Los Angeles Airport.
THE QUICK DETAILS: This is a No Shipping Cost Math Trade specifically for GAMEX 2010 attendees. Thanks to Eric Burgess we have a drop off spot at Boardgame HQ. This way, you can drop off the games you are trading and pick up the items you expect to receive. We'll keep a list and ask you to sign off that you dropped off and picked up your trades. Games will be kept securely behind the desk but we kindly ask that everyone drops off their items by 6 PM on Saturday. That way, everyone knows they can come by then and get their stuff. Additionally, you can start dropping off games as early as noon on Friday and MUST drop everything off by Saturday at 6 PM. Please pick them up as soon as you can however games will be held until Sunday at noon at which time all games not picked up by you or your mule will be considered a donation to the Strategicon Library.
PLEASE don't add anything to this list unless you plan to attend the even 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.
Forum Thread: please accurately describe your games condition, language, etc.
List Cap: None

Sweeteners: Sweeteners are to be listed using either the GAMEID formatting (preferred, example (LeftBracket)GAMEID=8989(RightBracket) or a link to the game's page (example http://www.boardgamegeek.com/game/8989). If you don't use these formats your sweeteners won't show up in the OLWLG properly. If you're only adding cash as a sweetener, you can use GAMEID=23953, which is the entry for "Outside The Scope Of BGG" and specify the amount of cash.

If you want the item to show up with a descriptive name in the OLWLG (only), see my item #15 as an example. Please keep the altname as short as possible. There are details on how to use the altname tags at: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/wiki/page/OLWLG#toc8
