Please use this thread for questions, comments, et cetera on the November 2017 Metro Vancouver No-Ship Math Trade.

• Trade geeklist: March 2018 Metro Vancouver No-Ship Math Trade

• Request geeklist: March 2018 Metro Vancouver No-Ship Math Trade - Request List

• Deadlines: Posting games (Saturday, 17 March 2018 at 23:00 PDT) & Want list submissions (Wednesday, 21 March 2018 at 18:00 PDT)



Where & When Do We Meet:

Terminal City Tabletop Convention
Croatian Cultural Centre
3250 Commercial Drive
Vancouver, British Columbia

Saturday, 24 March 2018 at 08:30 PDT

We will meet in the parking lot of the Croatian Cultural Centre -- not inside the Centre or near its entrance.

If, for any reason, you are not able to meet at the appointed time and place, it is your responsibility to make alternate arrangements with your trading counterpart(s). Furthermore, in this case, you must be able to meet up within one week of the end of the math trade.

YOU DO NOT NEED TO PAY FOR THE CONVENTION IN ORDER TO PARTICIPATE IN THE MATH TRADE!

Are we no longer allowed to meet in the hall beforehand?

TCTC is in a new location this year and we've been asked to not congregate all together before the convention starts -- and that's totally fair. We were offered a different time during the convention, but this isn't really workable since everyone will be gaming -- and that's pretty awkward. After reflection and consultation, I decided that, although it's not perfect, this was the least disrupting option.

Hi Juxtatype,

Maybe we can congregate outside the Trout Lake Community Centre instead before the convention? It's only a 6 minute walk according to Google Maps.

I like the idea of an appointed time and place where everyone meets, especially for those who aren't attending the convention.

Awe man, thats deflating. For an out of towner and someone not attending the event this sounds like too much work.


Regardless, thanks again Jux for setting this up!

Your present interlocutor is currently seeking a solution to this situation. I agree that one set meet-up time is preferable, but there are several complicating factors.

I will report back to you all and update all appropriate threads/lists when a meeting time and place has been established.

Whenever I see one of these annoucements, I get really excited because I think that you're talking about Vancouver Washington (the Cultural Mecca of the Northwest), only to find that once again I am mistaken.

You guys and gals have a great auction.

5¢ for making me laugh by putting cultural mecca and Vancouver, Was together in one sentence.

Hoping that if it is a set time, it's not 10am as I'm running demos then. Looking forward to trading some games!

True! Thank you for reminding me of that. I can definitely find someone to grab/give any games I manage to trade.

The meet-up time will absolutely not be during the convention itself. It will be before. Something like 8:30.

So the TCTC silent auction requires registration this year, and the deadline to register games coincides with the end of the wantlist submission period for this trade (22nd at 1800). Any chance we can make the deadline for this trade earlier so that results are available and people can list things that did not trade at the auction?

Without a proper meeting place it will be hard to dump free games on you suckers! Guess I'll just need to save it all for the next trade!!

Hear ye! Hear ye!

I have consulted the Council of Elders and I am handing down rulings on two important matters concerning this math trade.

1. The meet-up for this math trade is going to be on Saturday, 24 March at 8:30am. We will meet in the parking lot of the Croatian Cultural Centre -- not in the Centre or near its entrance. Should it be raining, we will gather underneath the Skytrain line which runs immediately adjacent to the parking lot.

2. I am going to move back the deadlines for both the posting of games and the submission of want lists by one day. This is to accommodate submissions to the TCTC silent auction.

I fully realize that I am not going to please everyone with these rulings, but I'm afraid that's the way it is. Any questions or concerns? Just geekmail me.

Dang, that would mean i need to leave at about 6:30am to get there on time. Maybe next time shake

If anyone is interested in my games please check for for trade list, maybe we can do a 1-1 side trade at a later date.

Is there any reason that you can't make arrangements with the people you trade with to meet up later in the morning/day?

Yes, I've geekmailed Matt a suggestion related to that.

Yes, this is an OLWLG problem, not an "us" problem.

Apparently, the gremlins have got into the API (whatever that is), but I'm sure Jeff (who runs the OLWLG) is on the case. Give it a day or so.

I've thought about that, but it could get VERY complicated as I wouldn't want to give a window larger then 1 hour, and that's a lot to expect on others that are following the timelines of the meetup. If there out of towners as well it could pose other issues.

Anyone from Chilliwack attending and wants to be my proxy? Those who have proxied before know theres always giftcard attached for their troubles.

Looks like it's working again.
