Results: http://bgg.activityclub.org/olwlg/trades-summary.cgi?listid=...

A Few Statistics:

# Users with items: 16
# MISSING 12 WANTS (10.4%) FROM 1 USER(s) (6.2%):
[ users trading = 7 ]

7/16 = 43.8% of Users who Submitted a Want List Received a Trade

# Item count: 115
Num trades = 13 of 103 items (12.6%)

13/115 = 11.3% of Items that had a Want List Traded

Num groups = 3
Group sizes = 7 4 2
Elapsed time = 74ms

Thanks to everyone who participated. I'd like to run another math trade sometime in the future, but does anyone have any suggestions on increasing participation while keep shipping costs as low as possible?

Well, here I am.

Main reason that I decided to do this is because it's ALBERTA.

And, why the hell not.

Well, I only have the dregs of my traders left, but I'll add them and see what happens. I'm glad someone in AB is moderating a math trade.

Thanks for joining the math trade!

I'm an MT addict, but I'm finding that shipping costs to eastern Canada and (especially) the US are creeping up significantly, especially for big box games. That's why I thought we should try an Alberta-only math trade - there are definitely enough gamers out there to justify it.

Thanks for starting this one up!

IF anyone is looking for a copy of Panzer Blitz AND Panzer Leader - I would be willing to consider offers. Both are in very good shape for their age. The boards are wearing at the fold. I believe all counters are accounted for - the games come with a second set of Panzer Leader counters (in excellent shape) and Panzer Leader 1940 counters (in excellent shape) and The Panzer Blitz supplement with extra scenarios.
AND a set of Ginzu knives.... hahahaha.

Hey, am I able to participate in this math trade if I live in Manitoba, but have family in Alberta? I'll be visiting them (near Camrose) for the Sept long weekend, so it might work out perfect (although I'm only there for a few days, so may not be able to arrange a face-to-face exchange). As long as the package can be shipped to them, I'm good to go, right?

You're fine

Quote:
You must have a valid Alberta address to which your items will be shipped (you don't have to be an Albertan to participate; however, you will need to have a Alberta address where the games can be shipped). You will be required to cover the full shipping costs for the games you are shipping to any valid Alberta address. However, in-person exchange is encouraged to eliminate shipping costs (hence the low-to-no-ship)!

Yes, you're good to go. We'll make you an honorary Albertan!

Now, its done... I'm vibrating w/ anticipation. (Or is that caffeine.)

I live in Lacombe, so in my contacts, I will offer...
- You mail it to me.
- I mail it to you.
- I drop it off at a local store in Lacombe for you to pick up. (Possibly Red Deer.)
- I leave it for you to pick up at the same local store in Lacombe.

*excitement*

Aaarg! I was so busy at work that I couldn't get my want list in on time. Hopefully Sharc can make this a bi-monthly event (hint). There is Fallcon coming in October...
