A brand new math trade to coincide with the NHL & NBA playoffs.

Please make sure to read through the rules and pay attention to all posted dates/times.

For anyone new to Math Trades be sure to check out the following thread for a video tutorial on math trades.

Math Trade Video Tutorials

Trade Geeklist: Math Trade - Playoffs Edition

Request GeekList: Math Trade - Playoffs Edition - Request List


Submissions Dates/Times:

Posting Games: Monday May 9th (12:00 AM EDT) to Thursday May 12th (4:00 PM EDT)

Want List Submissions: Thursday May 12th (4:00 PM EDT) to Saturday May 14th (11:00 AM EDT)

Results posted shortly thereafter.


Rules (Please read carefully):

1. Gift Certificates, GeekGold, and all items outside the scope of BGG etc are all permitted. However, Gift Certificate and GeekGold arbitrage are NOT allowed. Neither are cash offerings.

2. Non-game entries must be added using "Outside the Scope of BGG" (Game ID 23953). Make sure to use the +altname+ brief description -altname- format in the description of your item for it to properly show up in the OLWLG.

3. Sweetners are to be listed using the "Insert Geek Link" dropdown menu or manually inserted using the GAMEID link. If you don't follow this format your sweetners will not show up in the OLWLG.

4. You must describe the condition of your games as accurately as possible. This includes both the box and it's contents.

5. You must clearly state the editions and languages of all games posted. Do not just state "edition as posted", as pictures do not show up in the OLWLG.

6. Shipping - You must clearly state your shipping policies for this math trade. At a minimum, you shall be required to cover shipping to your own country's contiguous mainland (sorry AK & HI). If you fail to state your shipping policy, it will be assumed that you will ship anywhere in the world for free!

7. Do NOT delete any entries after they have been submitted. Just include a blank wantlist for that particular item instead.

8. Please do NOT include links to any other games (or items) in your entries, so that they are not misleadingly displayed as sweetners in the OLWLG.

9. Use of the On-Line Want List Generator (OLWLG) is required for submissions. Refer to the following document for help:
http://boardgamegeek.com/wiki/page/OLWLG

10. If you have been reported as a bad trader, do NOT try to participate. Any entries made will be removed.

11. Any other questions or issues, just ask.

The game itself isn't important. Spending time intellectually jousting with likeminded folks is the real reason to game.

Your best bet is the Bulls, I think.

I assume this just means I have to use OLWLG to submit my 'wants'. Or, does it also mean that I have to use it to submit my items for trade (instead of just adding them to the geeklist)?

First math trade .. thanks!

Yes, that is correct. You can add your items via the OLWLG OR the geeklist . Both do the exact same thing (they add the items to the GL).

Yup. You can use either method to add your game entries, but you have to use the OLWLG for your wantlist.

One of the items I listed actually just sold via another auction so I needed to remove it. I know you're not supposed to delete items from a geeklist and instead blank out the fields.

Here's a link to the item (Descent: Road to Legend): http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/67203/item/1669469#item166...

Just want to make sure I've edited that properly.

Thanks

With board game entries, you could even change it to Outside the Scope of BGG.

I have an RPG item that sold but there's no Outside the Scope for RPGs so I just put 'withdrawn' in the entry

Technically, there is no need to do anything if you choose to "withdraw" an item. Just submit a blank want list.

Although it is a polite courtesy to edit the entry to say "item removed", so others don't spend minutes agonizing which of their games to trade for it.

Technically, I can walk through a door and allow it to shut directly in the face of a woman behind me.
