The 2016 Fire & Ice convention (in Manitowoc, WI) is fast approaching, and our tradition - eight years and counting now - is to have a no-ship math trade. Past years' trades have been hugely successful, typically attracting 500+ items and having a high trade percentage.

This is a no-ship math trade. That means you don't have to pay shipping costs. It's a great way for you to trade with other local gamers, getting rid of those unwanted or underplayed games for other things you might want to try at no cost.

Even if you can't make it to the con, there are plenty of us who attend and we will be more than happy to be your proxy at the exchange - although it's always great to see you there.

Here are the links to the trade and request lists:

Trade GeekList: Fire & Ice 2016 - The Math Trade

Request GeekList: Fire & Ice 2016 - The Math Trade - Request List


Open for posting games: Wednesday, February 10th, 10pm to Friday, February 19th, 10pm.

Want list submission period: Friday, February 19th, 10pm to Tuesday, February 23rd at 10pm.

Want lists and results will be publicly posted shortly thereafter.

Please see the trade GeekList for rules etc, and feel free to ask questions here...

Just checking to see if anyone from Madison is traveling to the Con and would be a proxy.

Feel free to comment to this request.

Thanks

If the results would be posted by Monday night, I could have probably convinced my wife to pick up some games since she'll be in Madison on Tuesday, but that doesn't work out for the trade unfortunately.

An ash I know, Yggdrasil its name. With water white is the great tree wet; thence come the dews that fall in the dales. Green by Urth's well does it ever grow.

I dunno. It should seem that Mil-Cog denizens who game outside of our walls might be interested. But I don't know how to do an advertisement there, per se.

Perhaps for next year we should talk to Jamey to see if he is willing to allow that sort of thing.

Less than 24 hours. 342 items listed so far. A bit down from recent years, but there's still time for more people to get in on the trade...

That's what I was thinking. Good thought.

Haha! No kidding :-)

Unfortunately it won't be trading here, either. My wish list is pretty small.

Sorry, I don't think there's anything of comparable value in the entire auction with the NES, except Zombicide (not interested), Where there is Discord (not interested and probably not trading anyways), and HeroQuest (and I put a copy of that up as well, so it wouldn't make sense for me to try to get it).

I know that Christian is working on his lists as I type this. Hopefully things will pop when he submits his.

Right now, just 18 out of 324 items are changing hands (5.6%).

9 people out of the 12 who have submitted their wants so far are making at least one trade.

For those who want to know (I know that at least one person here doesn't, so I'll use a spoiler tag) the following people have no trades - yet.

Going to submit soon. Just fiddling with the unfriendly check-box system...

My tentative list: draft 1, is in...

Let's see if that helps at all.

One last late expansion, tucked in at 9:59pm... hopefully this user will glean a single trade or two.

OOOH, 14 TRADES!

A low percentage to be sure, but I got Pressure Cooker, La Boca, Sheepland, Click Clack Lumberjack, and Machi Koro as targeted titles.

Sad that I didn't get some Bohnanza expansions... Hey Charlie, what'll it take to pull Bohn To Be Wild! from your collection?

Some final statistics:

14 participants. 13 trading.

58 items out of 419 traded -> 13.8%

There was a lot of late activity (perhaps people trying to get a trade for brewgamer) which, sadly, ended up making no difference at all.

Don't forget to check the "Who Wanted Mine" link, to see if you can arrange some side trades. Mongo like side trades...

We could do some talking - bundle some things up I'm sure I saw you were interested in the NES Action Set and Virtual Boy bundle too - I would much rather trade them than deal with selling them on eBay and having to ship them, so let's talk.
