Some Things to Remember
Once the math trade results are posted, please keep these things in mind:

1. Try to arrange the trades via the BGG trade mechanism. This means that the your and your trading partner's traded items must be marked as "For trade" in your respective collections. Either side of the trade party can initiate the trade and send it to the other. Within the OLWLG results summary file, clicking on your trading partner's name will bring up the BGG trade window.

This process will allow both you and your trading partner to build your trade ratings and have a record of the trade.

2. Remember to look over the "who wanted mine" link via the OLWLG to determine if there are any additional trades you want to offer outside of the official math trade is complete.

3. There will be gaming following the F2F game exchange.

List of Official Proxies/Couriers from Outside of Madison
1 If you live outside the local, Madison-metro area and would like to be a proxy for other traders in your area, please contact me and I will list your userID info here.

2 If you are interested in the math trade, but can't travel to Madison for the face-to-face trade, please check this post to see if anyone can proxy for you. You will be responsible for communicating and coordinating with the proxy and please don't list any items unless you are 100% sure that you have a proxy.


No Proxies/Mules for 2018 MT.

BGG Policy in Regards to Gift Certificates / Gift Cards in Trades
If you are planning on adding an offered Gift Certificate / Gift Card to your want list, please read the following BGG policy.

Cash Value Trades in Math Trades (and how to make a geek market listing for them)

In short, if you receive a GC, you must pay 3% of its value to BGG - it is like a direct sale of an item. In this case, you are giving away a game and receiving a GC (cash).

Offer List Now Open
I decided to submit the offer list a bit early due to some ongoing synchronization issues between the OLWLG servers and BGG databases. If you are having trouble submitting want-lists, syncing your collections, or other BGG/OLWLG issues, please note that these are known issues and the only fix is patience. With that said, I would recommend that you be more proactive this MT and don't wait until the last moment for submitting offers or your want lists, just in case there is an issue and you are shut out of the MT.

Even though the Key dates indicate that submitting items you are offering is on February 21, you can start listing anytime after this announcement - at least via the Geeklist. The OLWLG entry may take awhile to go live, so you will need to wait to add games via that interface. If you are new to MTs, then ignore this - just add games via the Geeklist.


A. Please note that it may be 24 - 48 hours before the trade shows in OLWLG, so please be patient.

B. If you don't see something listed on the OLWLG, but it is on the offer geeklist - it just means that I haven't synced the two... and you'll have to chew on your fingernails until I get to that (which I do periodically).

These two points are what most new MTers ask 99.993% of the time.

Do you always run this Math Trade the second weekend in March? I think last year was the same.

I would love to participate, but it conflicts with the GaryCon gaming convention in Lake Geneva.

It changes from time to time, but typically it has been in the Feb - March time frame.

Except for 2017, when it wasn't in any time frame.

Perhaps you can subscribe to the Guilded Chaos guild, so you will be informed of any announcements.

For 2018, if you can arrange for a proxy, you are more than welcome to list, even though you can't attend.

If anyone replies, I will list this offer up in the thread entry for that info.

This year, we aren't shaking the trees of guilds/groups outside of Madison, due to the ineffectiveness of those efforts in past years, but we are always happy if non-Madison area gamers want to participate in our MT.

Summary of Results
MTers,

I won't be attending the F2F exchange, as I have nothing to trade.

Below is a summary of the trades. Please be sure to arrive promptly at 10A to perform the exchange. If there are any issues with your making the meetup, please contact the recipient (s) of your game (s) and let them know the deal.

Please note that Dan Harwood would not be your resource for any trade day issues, so please forward all concerns to me via BGG PM, and I will try to resolve them as soon as possible.

Thanks for participating.
