It's been 4+ months since the last Canadian Math Trade, and with the postal strike finally over, what better time to try another coast-to-coast math trade.

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

Note: You MUST have a Canadian mailing address to participate in this Math Trade.

Trade Geeklist: Postal Strike Over - A Canadian Math Trade

Request GeekList: Postal Strike Over - A Canadian Math Trade - Request List


Submissions Dates/Times:

Posting Games: Monday July 11th (12:00 AM EDT) to Saturday July 16th (10:00 AM EDT)

Want List Submissions: Saturday July 16th (10:00 AM EDT) to Monday July 18th (10:00 PM 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 shall be required to cover full shipping to any location within Canada.

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.

Is this reserved for Canada only listers or do you just have to be willing to ship to anywhere in Canada?

It's for traders that either live in Canada OR have a Canadian address that they can receive games at.

I'm not too worried. By the time the math trade is over and people start shipping their games, the postal strike will have been over for almost a month so most of their backlog should be cleared out by then.

I've started receiving stuff shipped after the strike.

I received a game today that was shipped after the strike.

Moreover, a real sign that the strike is over: my mailbox was full of junk mail.

I had some stuff shipped to me during and just after the strike but haven't received any of it yet. Hopefully soon then!

I'm still missing some mail, but was told that the CanadaPost backlog should be cleared by the end of this week. If so, this trade will be hitting just at the right time...

Edit: And some of the "missing" mail arrived today. Good sign.

Immediately after the strike ended, two people sent me games. One from Vancouver, and one from Ontario. One made it to the U.S. in 2 days, and the other in 4 days. I'm a bit surprised that your stuff is still sitting in the queue.

Anyway, enjoy your math trade!

Any bets on how many people will be surprised, having assumed the list was open until 10pm?

A pretty good list overall though. Not sure things are going to work out well for me, as most items I want don't match well with the values of what I'm offering... but there is no lack of decent content.

Ah! I was at the cottage this week, so I just missed this one! Got back mid-afternoon, noticed the list was here, flagged it, and was going to add my entries tonight.

Ah, well, next time...

Still missing wantlists from exactly 50% of the participants. Current trade percentage is almost 14% (see interim results at the top of this thread).

I've already submitted a want-list, but if I make edits to it, can I still resubmit before tonight's deadline?

I realized I neglected to take all of the duplicates into consideration, so I only added one copy of certain games, even though multiples were available. I wasn't aware of the duplicate protection measures at the time.

Yes you can re-submit as many times as you want until tonight's deadline.
