Greetings, one and all!

This year's math trade will be better than ever. There will be

• a dedicated space for the math trade;
• many tables for people to showcase their wares;
• names tags (with BGG handles) for all math trade participants; and
Me -- to answer questions and solve problems (and trade games). If we haven't met yet, please come and say 'hello'!

Thanks for organizing this Kenneth!

There's a very small typo in the trade description - it should be "SHUX19" instead of "SHUX18" in the parentheses of the first listed rule.

In the rules, can we request a standardized currency for when people start adding cash items? Either all US$, or all Cad$? Or at least ask posters to be clear which currency they're offering?

I remember there being a lack of clarity on some postings last year.

Yes, I will ask anyone who offers cash to specify the currency. Thanks.

Hi Kenneth, just making sure that we can delete items again this year or should I edit the placeholder to indicate if a game is no longer available.

Hello, I will be a pearagon this SHUX but would love to participate in the math trade. Is there any accommodation for pearagons who may be working a shift during the trading or will it be up to me to organize another time to meet up with them? Thanks for the help and organizing the trade!

By all means, please participate in the math trade. We can make an arrangement, I'm sure.

Hi there, I'm not sure if this is a done thing or not, so feel free to let me know. I've put a good number of older war games in that very likely will appeal to a smaller number of folks than the average game here.

I'm considering bundling a few things together, but at this point would doing it pretty well blindly. If anyone has interest in a couple specific items, I'm happy to take suggestions as to how or if I bundle. I'm only really considering this with the smaller items.

Love to hear thoughts! Again, I'm not sure if this is "done" and so if I'm violating some rule here, let me know and I'll retract my question

Hi,

Sorry but I'm kinda new to BGG. Can you advise how I access the Geeklist? When I'm in my account and click "Geeklist", nothing is listed. I tried going to the list of all the games and can try to locate the games that I listed but I can't see a spot where I can delete it that way.

Thank you in advance for your help!

Probably the quickest way to deal with this is to go to your listing of games in the OLWLG. Click on the link that takes you to your item on the geeklist and then click "delete". Alternatively, you can simply not submit wants for that particular item and it will not trade.

Good news everyone!

I'm playing games tonight and I probably won't be done by 10 pm. So the window for offering games will probably close nearer to 11 or 11:30 pm. Anyway, the bottom line is that you have a little bit longer to list games for the math trade.

As one of the 36 in 2017 who was not able to attend in 2018, I'm very excited about what to me is a HUGE increase this time!

I'm pretty sure 100% of that per participant increase is due to the SHUX library entering like... 300 games!
