It might be the morning deadline. It's a little unusual and people may not have read the rules and deadlines properly - which is entirely their fault and not yours of course.

Well I did send out multiple reminders over the past day or so. Only 13 users missed out which isn't too bad I guess.

They're coming! Right now the PC is smoking from trying to compute these results.

fwiw CO has uploaded the WANTS and running TM against it but with --iterations=1 just to see how many trades (assuming no need to edit the wants) there are...

Num trades = 519 of 2488 items (20.9%)

and I would get 3 trades! (though obviously that result set is going to be different after CO runs it with it appears 1,000 iterations but at least it looks hopeful that I'll get at least one trade)

Last time I had a 200% trade success rate (or something like that) I traded every game I listed, and one listing had 4 copies of one game.

I'm assuming to make up for that, this time I'll have a 0% success rate.

Blank want lists by others took out my three four most valuable items listed. Shame, but not a huge surprise...

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

Looks like there was enough 'wantage' on my copy of Struggle of Empires that it should trade. I hope.

if it sticks after just 1 iteration you could have

(ANGLOTIGER) 1635-BRASS receives (TGBRUISER) 2115-KOT

whatever King of Tokyo is?

Maybe 1000 iterations is overkill...

I didn't even know King of Tokyo was released already. I should have looked at the list more closely.

Actually I did use 1000. Which used to be perfectly fine before, but now these math trades are getting larger and larger...
