Time for the next Canadian math trade for 2015. Dust off all your games just sitting there collecting dust and see what you might get back in trade.

Please make sure to read through all the rules and pay attention to all posted dates/times.

For anyone new to Math Trades be sure to check out the following thread for a video tutorial on math trades.

Math Trade Video Tutorials

Note: You MUST have a Canadian mailing address to participate in this Math Trade.

Trade Geeklist: Canadian Math Trade - Spring 2015 Edition

Request GeekList: Canadian Math Trade - Spring 2015 Edition - Requests


Submissions Dates/Times:

Posting Games: Sunday May 10th 11:00 PM EDT to Monday May 18th 11:00 AM EDT

Want List Submissions: Monday May 18th 11:00 AM EDT to Wednesday May 20th 11:00 PM EDT

Results posted shortly thereafter.


Rules (Please read carefully):

1. Board Games, RPG's, Video Games and items outside the scope of BGG are all permitted.

2. There is a limit of one (1) Gift Certificate and one (1) Geek Gold entry per person. Gift Certificate and GeekGold arbitrage are NOT allowed. Neither are cash offerings.

3. Non-game entries must be added using "Outside the Scope of BGG" (Game ID 23953). Make sure to use the +altname+ brief description -altname- format in the description of your item for it to properly show up in the OLWLG.

4. You must describe the condition of your games as accurately as possible. This includes both the box and it's contents.

5. You must clearly state the editions and languages of all games posted. Do not just state "edition as posted", as pictures do not show up in the OLWLG.

6. Shipping - You shall be required to cover full shipping to any location within Canada.

7. Do NOT delete any entries after they have been submitted. Just include a blank wantlist for that particular item instead.

8. Please do NOT include links to any other games (or items) in your entries, so that they are not misleadingly displayed as sweeteners in the OLWLG.

9. Use of the On-Line Want List Generator (OLWLG) is required for submissions. Refer to the following document for help:
http://boardgamegeek.com/wiki/page/OLWLG

10. If you have been reported as a bad trader, do NOT try to participate. Any entries made will be removed.

Item # 343 Nations at War - why is neither the boardgame image nor the game title/link showing up in the Stats list opening page (title shows up when you open the item)?
Thx
Cavan

Which is the "Stats list opening page"? Are you talking about this link?

It's fine as-is. I tried to add it to my wantlist and it shows up ok.

Interesting: I tried to change my 'Stone Age: Casino' item to Outside The Scope (because it's not available for trade), but Outside The Scope is not an option. Maybe because Casino is an expansion and not a game?

Does this math trade use the item priority system? Or is it set to ignore priority numbers?

Less than 2 days remaining to get your games in for trade. If you know any geeks that don't know about the trade or are currently procrastinating go and harass them.

I don't know that it's possible... I think the best you can do is give them a negative value to ensure they are pushed to the very bottom of your list.

Yup, it's not (currently) possible to delete dummies.

Final 2+ hours to get your games in for trade.

Note that something unexpected just came up this morning, so I might be slightly delayed in locking down the trade geeklist. Enjoy the extra time!

He hasn't resynced since you added your items.... I expect he'll do it as soon as he gets a chance, based on the "something came up" note above.

A reminder, especially for newer traders, that when you successfully submit your wants, you will receive a GeekMail confirming them. If you didn't get a GeekMail, you didn't submit them. Post here if you have any problems!

Usually, what is the average (%) of games traded in a math trade?

This can vary a lot depending on how desirable the items listed are, and how people's want lists are (a few desirable items with very open want lists can really grease the wheels...)

I remember 25% being talked about as a realistic number, but, lately, I've seen a lot up in the 30% range.

too late to edit my item "Gloom" but someone asked what edition and language it was. i didn't see it until now.

i believe it's 2nd edition (clear acrylic cards) and it's English
