For results info see http://www.boardgamegeek.com/article/1274169#1274169 ... 75 trades found!

Corresponding geeklist at: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/18694

Math Trade Deadlines:
Tues. Jan. 9th 10pm ET - for submitting games (and sweeteners)
Thur. Jan. 11th 9pm ET - for submitting want lists
Sat. Jan. 13th 11am ET - for those playing at home to geekmail me TradeGenie result files
Sat. Jan. 13th 11:55am ET - results posted

Unity Games XII - Open Gaming Convention
Framingham, MA (outside Boston)
Sat. January 27th, 2007 - 9am to Midnight
http://www.unitygames.org/ugxii/ugxii.htm
Only $10 until Jan. 13th, then $15 at at the door

Math Trade Rules:
1. You must be either attending UGXII or know someone who is that will be your proxy as all game deliveries are being done at the convention (ie. no shipping costs!).

2. You can put as many games as you want up for trade, and you can even list the same game (duplicate) someone else is trading, but ... you can not duplicate your own games.

3. Feel free to add comments to individual geeklist items, but do not add general comments to the geeklist itself. Instead use this forum thread for discussion.

4. "sweeteners" are to be listed using either the GAMEID formatting (prefered, example Hansa) or a link to the game's page (this will look like http://www.boardgamegeek.com/game/8989). If you don't your sweeteners won't show up in the summary (I'll be using software to generate the summary automatically)

5. 40 items max on each want list (I'll truncate w/out warning if you go over)

6. You must accurately describe your game's condition, language, edition, etc. Please list English even if it was only ever published in English as chances are someone will ask regardless.

7. You must submit a want list for each game you are offering. If you don't want to trade a specific offering (because you see no one elses game(s) you'd be happy with in exchange), submit a blank list and the game will not be traded.

8. Do NOT submit want lists until the summary has been posted.

9. I reserve the right to remove games from the list for whatever reason (this is very unlikely, but is here just in case). If you are on the bad traders list, your games will be removed.

10. By posting an entry on this list, you agree to abide both by the general math trade guidelines and by those specific to this math trade.

11. When you add item(s) please put in the comment field the hours you anticipate being at UGXII (this may help folks who aren't there all day to leave games off their want list if they won't be there to accept delivery)

Trade Resolver: TradeGenie (trying to maximize number of trades)
Everyone is invited to run TradeGenie (with -R option). If more than one run finds the most trades, lowest TradeGenie verification code will be used (ascii character set so "A" lower than "Z" which is lower than "a").

Feel free to include sweeteners (additional games you wish to bundle with the game you are adding) in the comment field (or click on "[Comment]" for the item to add after the fact).
Note: use the "[Add Item]" link to add the game you own and wish to trade away.

Jeff
______________________________________________________
Format for want lists is (AFTER the summary has been posted), for each of your games:
your-geeklist-item-number wanted-item-number1 wanted-item-number2 ...
(wanted lists can be empty if you see no games you are will to accept in trade)
ie. space separated lists where the 1st number is the item number for your game.
Note: you can list the same item(s) you want on more than one of your want list.

important: make sure you double check the times the person who offered up each game on your want list will be at the convention, or at least be prepared to make arrangements for receiving the game (if you are lucky to "win" it in the math trade of course!).

Don't know what a math trade is? See http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/93555

Want lists
The summary of the games available in this math trade is listed in the article above.

GeekMail (http://www.boardgamegeek.com/newmessage.php3?touser=JeffyJef...) me your want lists (a single message for ALL your want lists please) by Thursday January 11th, 9pm ET

Want lists MUST be in the following (example) format (including putting blank lines between each list):

1 20 31 45 57

8 20 31

9 2 14

In this example my game items are 1, 8, and 9. The items/games I would be willing to accept in trade for each of my games is listed separated by spaces following my game item number. Ie. for my item #1, I am willing to take in trade items 20, 31, 45, or 57. Do NOT put any games on your want list that you would not be happy with receiving in trade.

If you have a game item for which you have no wants, please simply submit that item number with no wants listed after it.

I STRONGLY suggest everyone verify their want list(s) submission before you geekmail them to me. You can do so at:

http://activityclub.org/bgg/verifywants.pl

Playing at home info
For those who are planning to "play at home" (ie. run TradeGenie themselves) and you don't already have TradeGenie on your system (Windows only)...

Download from http://www.kayvon.org/download.html

If you have trouble downloading from the official download page above (because it's compressed using the non-standard 7-zip method)...

You can download a standard zip from:

http://activityclub.org/bgg/TradeGenie.zip

and then unzip it. If you for some reason have trouble with zip then you can download:

http://activityclub.org/bgg/TradeGenie.eee

and save it, then rename it to TradeGenie.exe

Also download the want lists from http://activityclub.org/bgg/wants-ugxii.txt

You should run TradeGenie with the following arguments from a MS-DOS Comand Line Window:

TradeGenie -R wants-ugxii.txt results.txt

This assumes you have TradeGenie in the same directory.

The -R is "random start". This is REQUIRED as otherwise TradeGenie always starts at the same starting point, and it's pointless for everyone to be doing that as it's just duplicating the same results.

The file where the results are stored you can name anything (here it's results.txt"). If you have a multi-processor (or dual-core) system, if you run more than one copy of TradeGenie at the same time, and out of the same working directory, then you'll want to make sure to use different results file names.

Folks usually post into this forum thread as TradeGenie is running if they have a result set that has found more trades than anyone else so far. However even if you are only matching the current record, make sure to save those results as they may still be the winning results (tie-breaker info below).

You can Control-C TradeGenie at any time as it saves the results to the results file as it goes along. You may want to do this if your current run appears to be going no where and is below the current record. Lots of shorter runs have in the past had better luck in finding the largest trade set than few long runs.

Folks who are playing at home need to send me their largest result set(s) by "Sat. Jan. 13th 11am ET" so I can look for the one with the most results found, and in the case of a tie, see which one wins. I'll also verify the results (TradeGenie can check if the wants or results were tampered with).

Regarding tie breaker... we'll use the TradeGenie verification codes. Which ever result set (out of those tied for most trades found) has the lowest one using ascii order (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ASCII#ASCII_printable_character...).

No Risk for simply submitting games
For those who haven't participated in a math trade before (or as a reminder to everyone else)...

You should feel free to add any game into this math trade... if you end up not seeing any games that you would be happy with receiving in trade for it, you can simply submit an "empty" want list and hence keep your game (it won't be traded).

Hope this helps!

Jeff

Re: Unity Games XII Math Trade - Save on shipping!
Thanks for running this, Jeff.

For those who aren't aware, I had planned to do so, but will be travelling at _least_ twice before UG C, so I asked Jeff if he would mind running it again.

You're welcome Joe. Does this road trip have anything to do with your recent rein as Geek of the Week?

I fear not - I'm in CA as I type this, and will travel to OH and CO before UG - the first and third trips on business, the second for pleasure (though it would have been more pleasurable if I didn't have to take a red-eye back from CA to make it in time...)

I will, of course, be gaming in all three states.

WANT LISTS DUE
With less than 2 hours to go (as I write this) we are only waiting for 16 more want lists from 2 users:

12 - muttstain
4 - 80sGirl
If you see your bgg username listed and you believe you sent me your want lists (before 7pm today), let me know so I can find out what happened to them.

For those curious, with 158 want lists in a few test runs of TradeGenie have found 70 (and could possibly find more) games being traded! With (hopefully) the rest of the want lists we'll have many more games being traded!

Jeff

ps: for comparision in the math trade for the last UG (UGXI) we had 37 games traded out of 83

You got it in before the deadline; that's all that matters!

I got mine in early because I didn't think I'd have time to do it today or tonight.

Awesome! Still in before the deadline and that's the key thing.

The full set of want lists is at http://activityclub.org/bgg/wants-ugxii.txt

For those who want to play at home (you don't even need to have any games in this math trade), see:

http://www.boardgamegeek.com/article/1253667#1253667

Jeff

ps: with the final set of want lists, I currently have a trade set with 70 so that is the current benchmark for those of us playing at home!

The most wanted games, and the unwanted
The most wanted are listed in decreasing order of how many want lists they were listed on. The number following the /slash is how many wants that game itself had on it's want list. For example, Acquire was on 81 want lists, and there are 15 wants on the want list for Acquire.

The few games with a *** before them are the ones for which no want lists were submitted

The list of unwanted games (following the most wanted) are ones that appeared on no want lists and is simply sorted in alphabetical order.

74 trades found so far! Plus an additional note..at home
I've got a run that so far has found 74 trades!

An additional note for those playing at home. Because there were some missing want lists (items 147, 148, and 154) you'll see TradeGenie spit out "No such entry found: nnn" for those.

TradeGenie weeded down the games list to 104 entries and a list complexity factor of 35.

104 is the then the absolute max trades possible, though quite unlikely.

The list complexity factor of 35 means that with current processor speeds it would probably take TradeGenie 100 years to look at every possibility that we could be sure it found the actual most trades possible.

Re: Unity Games XII Math Trade -Save on shipping! RUN TRADEG
I ran TradeResolver in SCC mode and it determined that 132 and 145 for an SCC by themselves (and therefore automatically trade) - you can remove them from the lists for slightly faster TradeGenie runs.

Thanks Dan, but for the sake of simplicity (and to avoid confusion), everyone playing at home should use the wants-ugxii.txt wants file as is.

For those curious though, 132 and 145 (who apparently will be making a direct trade with each other) are:

"Cleopatra and the Society of Architects (145) [joemac2]"
"Really Nasty Horseracing Game, The (132) [Terry+Egan]"

And that should show up in all the results found. Damn it, I was hoping to get CatSoA!

Looking closer, each of those 2 games only had 1 want on each of their lists, and it was each others!

Re: Unity Games XII Math Trade -Save on shipping! RUN TRADEGENIE
I've never been to a Unity Games con before. Is there some table/area set up for the trades? It looks like I will be bringing quite a few games and getting quite a few, so I'd rather not be lugging around a large bag or making multiple trips out to my car.

For games that folks are making available for anyone to play, they will be on tables that border the entire room.

As such, there is also plenty of room for storage as you can store stuff under any of those tables.

At the last UG they also gave us a table or two to put our math trade games on, and someone (was it Tami that did it?) made up some small signs for each of the math trade participants who were trading games.

This time however we are trading (exactly as I write this) twice as many games. Though if the UG organizers are willing to give us a table again, we can just stack all the games as long as all folks label each game with a post-it note or something who each game is going to (since more than one copy of the same game may be in the pile).

Anyone playing at home (or work)?
I'm just curious if other than myself, is anyone else running TradeGenie?

And if so, what's the "best found" you've go so far?

My best is still the 74 which is what I had last night.

I am running it. Best so far was 72, I think (I didn't bother saving it). I'll check again tonight.
