Use of the On-Line Want List Generator (OLWLG) is required for this event (please remember to tip JeffyJeff some GG for his support).
Key dates (all times are CENTRAL TIME)
Open for posting games: Now until Sunday, October 9th (10pm)
Want list submission period: Sunday, October 9th (10pm) until Tuesday, October 11th (10pm) - no extensions!
Results posted within an hour thereafter.
Please do not delete items or sweeteners once you have listed them.[/size] 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:
Only Boardgames, Geek Gold and Gift cards are allowed (eg. No DVD's Video games, RPGs, etc. - not even as sweeteners)
Only games, with an Average rating (not Geek rating) of 6.50 or higher will be allowed.
Gift certificate and Geek Gold arbitrage are NOT allowed. If arbitage is found in the preliminary math trades results, the offending items will be removed and the results will be re-run. Otherwise, only errors by the moderator, will invalidate the results.
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.
If you are listing an expansion, do not include a link to the base game unless you are including it as this looks, in the OLWLG, as if you are.
You must clearly state your shipping policy in your listing."Mirror shipping" is not allowed.
Any ambiguity will be interpreted as generosity on your part. This means that if you don't include a shipping policy, then it is assumed that you will ship anywhere in the world for free!
If you've been reported to me as a bad trader, you cannot participate. If you try to, I will remove your entries.
Please do NOT include links to other games in your entry unless you are actually including them as a sweetener, as this is displayed in a misleading manner by the OLWLG.
Note: You will NOT be able to respond to comments in the GeekList once it is locked down and the submission period begins.
