A Labor of Love - September 2011 US-only math trade
- Trent Hamm(trenttsd)United States
IowaThe game itself isn't important. Spending time intellectually jousting with likeminded folks is the real reason to game.
Here's your rules:
Deadline to add games: 8:00 PM Eastern Time on Monday, September 5, 2011
Want Lists Due: 8:00 PM Eastern Time on Friday, September 9, 2011
Results Posted: As soon as I possibly can on September 9, 2011
UPDATE! I have a previously unnoticed social engagement on Friday evening. I intend to be able to close the math trade and run results on time, but I might be running an hour or two late due to the social event.

Use of the On-Line Want List Generator (OLWLG) is required for this event (please remember to tip JeffyJeff some GG for his support).
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.
All shipping costs are covered by the person listing the item. However, this is a U.S. only math trade. You must have a U.S. address to receive games. There will be no international shipping of items. The only way a non-U.S. user may participate is if they're requesting digital-only items such as geekgold or gift certificates.
Addendum: I have decided to allow people to restrict shipping to Alaska and Hawaii because some shipping services tack on extra costs to those areas. If you wish to restrict your shipping to the lower 48 states, you may do so, though I encourage you to simply allow shipping to all 50 states. The default is that you will ship for free to all 50 states. If you wish to ship only to the lower 48, you must explicitly state it.
The items allowed for this math trade are gift certificates (minimum of $10), geekgold (minimum of 200), boardgames, video games, and role playing games. We'll also allow DVDs and books. To add a non BGG/VGG/RPGG item, please enter Outside the Scope of BGG for the game title. Then in the body of the entry you write this:
$XX Gift Certificate to Steve's favorite store
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. Any games not in shrink should be fully inventoried, and any missing components - including inserts - listed in the entry.
Do not include a link to any game unless you are including it with the entry as this looks, in the OLWLG, as if you are.
If you've been reported to me as a bad trader, you cannot participate. If you try to, I will remove your entries.
Please watch (either via the geeklist or the OLWLG) for questions, and answer them promptly.
Geekgold and gift certificate arbitrage is not allowed. Which is to say - you may not put geekgold on the want list for your geekgold entry, and you may not put a gift certificate on the want list for your gift certificate entry.

Note: only errors by the moderator will invalidate the results. In the case that there is a problem after the results are posted, at most it will only invalidate the affected trade chain(s) and not the entire results set. In addition if the problem can be resolved by the most directly affected party or parties, then that is perfectly acceptable.
All decisions regarding questions with this math trade are decided by the person running this math trade, namely trenttsd. If you do not agree to me making such decisions, then don't participate in the math trade.
If you have any questions, please feel free to comment on this list or send me a Geekmail!
