I vote chaos. I am attempting to meet up with everyone before the official time and try and get things exchanged early.

Wouldn't that be the opposite of chaos?

Nah, that's just controlling the chaos.

Heh, just noticed that my 39.90 guess just barely missed getting 3rd prize again.

I completed a few of my trades today.

If anyone will be there on Friday & has a trade to make with me, I'll be wearing a Dallas Stars hat & wandering around until well past midnight.

Mischa, thanks a bunch again for running this. My first math trade & everything went smoothly (once I turned up 15 mins late...).

2 LEAVE FEEDBACK for your trade partner.
3 Update your collection!
4 Discuss! What was your best trade? What worked, what didn't? How can next year be better?

It was quick and painless for me. I paused a game I was playing for 5 minutes, ran over to the room, traded my four games, ran back.

I had the same experience as Daniel. Paused for 5 minutes, ran in, handed games, got games, and was back to my gaming table in no time.
I couldn't find the chaos though

Thanks for running this trade Mischa.

I think it worked very well having the trade in the Sunnyside Room. It was much more "controlled" chaos than that last time I participated in 2007 when it was held in the atrium. Next time I am going to remember to bring a cardboard sign though, because working with a paper sign is kind of a pain.

Mischa,

Thank you for all your hard work and stress in making these Math Trades a great success!

I would have been happy if my experience had been like this. Some of us were involved with people who either lost track of when the math trade was going to happen or couldn't be bothered to take a break from their games to come make their trades. Hearing someone say, "He's not here, he says he's in the middle of a game," just made my teeth itch.

I hope that the shockingly rude people will just choose not to involve themselves in the MT next time.

All the same, thanks for running it, Mischa!

Randy...

I know that one fellow had the unfortunate luck to get locked out of his room while trying to make the trade.

So it's cell phones or I take pictures of people: "He looks like this!"

I probably should have made an announcement in the big room: MATH TRADE T MINUS 30 MINUTES.
