The biggest thing I had to understand when starting was you can't always progress through all the steps until the trade list is updated. This happens frequently, however if you add an item and then immediately go to pick trades for it you won't be able to because it won't have been synced yet with the geeklist.

Have fun with those check boxes!

I changed my mind about trading the game at item #5190877. I was wondering if what I did, changing the game ID to outside the scope of BGG and changing the comments to item removed, was the correct way of doing this? This is my first math trade and as such I'm a little green about the whole thing. Thanks!

When you fill out the trade list for your games, just do not submit a want list for this game.
Simple

I'm hoping to list my games in the trade, but I have a family commitment for that Sunday.

Is there anyone that I could connect with in Toronto before the trade to get my games there & then get my new games back from them after? I live midtown (near Eglinton West station), and work downtown (Queen & Spadina), and have a car, so I have some flexibility about where to meet...

Thanks!

Hi Ian, Ken (organizer) and I can arrange the trade in Markham for you if you could off the games to Yonge/Finch on weeknights or weekends. Let us know!

WoodForSheep was kind enough to hold games before and after the math trade last time. I'll confirm with then that they can make similar arrangements this time around, for a handful of exceptional cases.

I checked with WoodForSheep and they will be able to make alternate arrangements for folks unable to make the dropoff/pickup window.

Just make sure you email them ahead of the drop-off so they know to expect it at the GameCentre

Ok . . . so I'm a first time math trader. I've added a bunch of games, but couldn't figure out how to add the sweetener properly (i.e. entry #308 in the math trade list).

How do I do it properly so it looks like everyone else's?

Thanks for the help and I'm looking forward to seeing how this plays out!

Hey Chris,

When you're adding sweeteners, use the "Insert Geek Link" drop-down from the editing menu, and select "boardgame". Start typing in the search box, and select your item, and hit "go".

The result will look like:

Quote:
[ thing=2915][/thing ]

When you preview/post it, it'll look like:

Catan Card Game: Expansion Set

Attaching an image is similar, select the "Insert geek image" icon (the 2nd camera one), and you'll have to find the ID of the image you'd want -- just go to the boardgame's page, click on any image, and copy the ID from the URL.

Quick reminder, please add a note at the end of your edits, indicating what you changed (something simple like "edit: sweeteners formatting"), thanks!

Ken, sorry for throwing another question at you, but I just want to make sure that I've done the duplicate protection properly. It just seems odd that the list is showing a game that I do not own as one that I do. Will the program let me know if I have done something wrong?

My fear is that I haven't done it correctly and end up screwing it up for everyone else . . .

so what exactly is it showing?
Can you send a screenshot so we can see what you're seeing?
feel free to email me at ken.sinn@gmail.com if that's easier than doing it through the forums

Hi Mercurial. I think i would definitely ask for your help as something came up for this for this weekend and wont be able to attend the trade myself. Could we meet at Yonge and Finch maybe this Friday? Or anywhere in Vaughan or Etobicoke area? Thanks

Hey everyone

Ive been trying to acquire Letters from Whitechapel for a few trades now. It seems a lot of people have it for trade and i was looking for someone who wants to trade. Im interested in the newer edition with the wooden pawns and such (i think its the FFG revised edition). If after this trade someone is still looking to get rid of their copy and youre ok shipping to London Ontario please message me and hopefully we can work something out.

Hi Joe,

If you can make it to the WoodForSheep game center on Thurs/Fri, you could drop it off at the store as well, and they're open late.
