Yes. Let's wait until tomorrow to make sure there's no problems.

Whoops, sorry, missed this page and jumped the gun! No, I'm not too enthusiastic.

Apologies for the delay, but there was a late-night snafu involving a spam filter and a very large wantlist,
Crap. Did I break the Math Trade?

Impressive results! Re: BGG.Con 2009 Math Trade Actual Discussion
I just noticed noticed this MT appeared over (results, most wanted, who wanted mine, etc links showed up in OLWLG) and always curious how things went and what a surprise!!! You guys have a VERY successful math trade, congrats!!

498 items trading!!! That's 42.6%!!!!! Looks like some folks traded possibly a record number of items too! Lots of folks double digits, some in the 20+ items! Winner for most items trading... HDTVDave! Dave, hope you are driving to the con!

Well, no-ship certainly helps. Not a chance I'd trade for Sticheln if I had to ship something as large as Tyranno Ex to get it.

No-ships are definitely the best! Though "no ship" is relative, some folks are going to be traveling to and from bgg.con with lots of games from this!

I was surprised at the Tyranno Ex trade! Even for a no-ship! You traded away your new in shrink AH Tyranno Ex for Sticheln and then traded away West Wing seasion 1&2 dvd's for the same edition Tyranno Ex you traded away just not in shrink! So you essentially got Sticheln for the West Wing DVD's

Yup. I got Tyranno Ex a few years back in the no-ship trade. I've not gotten it to the table. I want to play it, but I'd rather have Sticheln, thus my want lists: Sticheln > Tyranno Ex > West Wing DVDs.

Really? Well, then, yeah. Let's pull it out after the con. Or during the con.

Well, I was about to say they probably have on in the Library, but the Library game list isn't posted yet. But bring it to SFGH on Friday.

Yesterday I was at a gaming flea market where I saw Tyranno Ex for $5.

Getting my stuff home is going to be a pain.

I feel confident that Tyranno Ex is in the game library. Almost positive I saw it the other day when I was standing in the middle of all that shelving!

Marc's the designer. You may want another game of his instead of two copies of Coalescence.

Finally, a copy of Giganten. Finally, & it only took three games of mine to do it.

Double win, reducing the library + getting my big want.

Next, Traumfabrik!!

Heh. My guess last year was 42.42%, almost surely would have won this year had I stuck with it.

Well, I got two out of my three most wanted: Reef Encounter (R&D edition) and Here I Stand.

My #1 target this time was Antiquity. I passed up buying this at retail many times since I was already busy playing Indonesia and Roads & Boats. I didn't think I would want yet another fiddly Splotter game with a hojillion chits. I was wrong!

I am super pleased with my results. I used dummy lists for "type of game protection" and not just "duplicate protection," heh. So, I only got 1 wargame, 1 CCG lot, 1 abstract, 1 light game, 1 party game, etc. plus some of my more desirable targets. Worked fantastically!

My pet peeve of not checking in luggage (I like to get in and out of the airport fast, especially international flights) restricted me in what and how many games I can offer, as well as what I can take in return. I'm glad it worked out, since Factory Fun and Flowerpower take very little room!

Nothing really caught my eyes except the trade of Reef Encounter for Planet Steam. That's quite a pick up, even if it's the original edition.

Anyway, thanks Mischa!

Also don't forget to check out the "who want mine" link for this MT in the OLWLG... folks sometimes find direct trades that way for something someone was trying to trade to get your item that you yourself may not have considered originally (or left off as you heeded the golden rule of MT's, your least desired want is the one you'll likely get)
