This is a no-ship math trade for those who will be present at the 36-Hours Of Games event on March 20 - 21, 2010 in Holland, MI. You must either be present in person at the event to exchange games or be able to send your games with a proxy who will be at the event.

Important Times and Dates:
(all times in Eastern i.e. GMT-05:00)


Item Submission Opens: immediately
Item Submission Closes/Want Submission Opens: Sat., March 13, 2010 11:00 PM
Want Submission Closes/Results Posted: Tues., March 16, 2010 11:00 PM

Unusual Rules:
1. List Anything, Everything. Except cash.
2. No shipping. Games must be exchanged in person at the 36-Hours of Games Event.

Trade List: 36-Hours of Games No-Ship Math Trade, Holland, MI - Trade List
Request List: 36-Hours of Games No-Ship Math Trade, Holland, MI - Request List
Discussion Thread: 36-Hours of Games No-Ship Math Trade, Holland, MI - Discussion Thread

Full Rules:
1) Use of OLWLG is required.

2) List anything you'd like, except cash. NO GG or GC arbitrage.

3) Non-game entries must be added as "Outside the Scope of BGG" (game id 23953), "Miscellaneous Game Accessory" (game id 5985) or "Miscellaneous Game Merchandise" (game id 22104) and must include the +altname+ brief description -altname- format in the description of your item.

If you are offering an expansion for which there is no entry in BGG (for instance expansion cards handed out at Essen) and NOT the base game, please use "Miscellaneous Game Accessory" to help avoid confusion.

4) You are expected to describe, as accurately as is reasonably possible, the condition (components and box), language and edition of your item in the description. Do not just say, "as pictured."

For games not brand new (in shrink) you must inventory the game's components and list anything missing. Do not assume it's complete. Also, remember that just because something is "new in shrink" that doesn't mean that you shouldn't disclose any dings. It might not matter to you, but it matters to some people.

If the game and/or expansion you are listing is a "Print & Play" make that clear in the description (and I recommend you give specifics what it was printed on, mounted on, etc).

If you are listing an expansion if you reference the base game in the description be clear one way or the other if you are including the base game or not. Do not include a link to the base game unless you are including it as this looks, in the OLWLG, as if you are.

5) Sweeteners are to be listed using the GAMEID formatting (prefered, example Hansa). If you don't use this format your sweeteners won't show up in the OLWLG properly.

6) If you've been reported as a bad trader, you cannot participate. If you try to, I will remove your entries. If you see someone posting entries who is a bad trader, please let me know.

7) Please do NOT include links to other games in your entry unless you are actually including them as a sweetener, as this is displayed in a misleading manner by the OLWLG.

8) This is a no-ship trade. All exchanges will be executed in person at the 36-Hours of Games event in Holland, MI, on March 20 - 21. Please only list games if you or a proxy can bring the game to the event.

9) Finally - you are expected to periodically check during the item submission period, and preferably during the want list submission period, to see if anyone has commented on your entries. People often ask questions of items - most commonly because you have forgotten to state a version, language or shipping policy - and you should check in to address such questions in a timely manner should they arise, so that everyone then has the correct information available.

This is a very easy thing to do. Just click on "My Geek", then "Contributions" and finally on "GeekList Items". You will then be able to see your items without having to find them in the trade GeekList along with any comments that people have made. You will only need to go back to the trade GeekList to make adjustments or answer questions if there were any.

Trade Settings:
TradeMaximizer 1.4 with duplicate protection. SEED=1342130, ITERATIONS=500, METRIC=USERS-TRADING

Thanks for participating and good luck!

I probably won't make it, but if there's a proxy coming from Ann Arbor, I'll list my games.

I second that--anyone from Ann Arbor or East Lansing that might be going, please let me know. I'd like to list a few items that are just too much of a bear to ship. Thanks.

I still haven't heard back from the other possible "game mule."

I hope something works out so you can join the trade. The more, the merrier.

My goal is to get 10 people and 50 items in the trade. There are 3 people that I know who have told me they will be joining.

Well, we'll just have to wait and see... I'd truly love to move Descent locally; I know I'll never play it again, and it's a pain to ship.

I'd likely not play it for a year, but I still want it. Perhaps we can have our very own "local math trade" if we don't get a game mule (what a great phrase).

Jeremiah, Carl, I am afraid I am not going to be able to be the mule. If one of you come up witha local math trade be sure to let me know. I have not participated in one yet. But some day.

Sorry, again guys.

If you're really interested in it, you could always buy it from me, or buy me a game (board or video, really) in compensation.

(I don't see anything in your collection that's really of interest...)

In other words, no need to run a math trade.

Sorry guys, I couldn't figure out where to add the games that I wanted for each of my items... Sorry Mark, you will have to show me how to use the tool sometime.
