Matthew - your lists are submitted so if you don't want to make changes, you're done and just need to check back Tues night to see what trades as described above. You can still change your want list if you desire, but you will have to resubmit it after any changes. :-)

Thanks for the support and all the organization. It's a little difficult being on this end of the process, I was reading a bit about managing it and I do not envy your position in managing it!

Just to make sure. I can put my gift certificate up against another gift certificate as long as it's a lower value right (i.e. with sweeteners) but I can't put it against a higher value (sweeteners or not). Is that correct?

I was looking for a game on the trade but it comes with an additional game and I realize my trade is not equal in value. So can I add an additional sweeteners for the trade to make it equal?
Or am I too late since submission date is on Saturday?
If I can add a sweetener would I include a comment under the item with a sweetener since I can't edit the original item?

For finding out the results, there will actually be a "Results" link for the trade in the OLWLG, once Sara finishes up calculating the results, and it's a nice, organized summary that tells you what you have to give to who, and what you're getting back (and from who).

To taileiu: Don't worry too much about specific retail values. There's a bit of subjectivity in the way these trades work. Put the game that you want on your want list. If you get it, chances are the other person will not be getting your game, but another person's game, in a big "everyone pass your game one to the left" sort of deal.

That being said, while it is, technically, too late to add something to your official entry, I suppose there's nothing stopping you from posting a comment to the effect that "I will also give X to whoever gets this game" - but since a number of people have already submitted their lists, and some of the rest will likely not notice your comment, I don't know how much it would affect how many people will add your game to their want list, which is really what would make a difference.

Hey guys,
I've added my wants but the add buttons are still there; no green check mark. All the games are showing up when I click on the "edit your wants" button, so I assume everything is okay. Just want to make sure though.

On the page http://bgg.activityclub.org/olwlg/viewlist.cgi?listid=99418&... you should see a green check box instead of the square (Add) button.

For the games that you have successfully saved then on the chart page you should see rows added http://bgg.activityclub.org/olwlg/mywants.cgi?listid=99418. This was the problem I was having originally seeing no rows but once I started adding they started to appear.

Okay, everything's good now. The check marks took like 15 minutes to appear...maybe I needed to refresh the page?

So, I've just realized that I can't get to the cafe until 3:45-4ish on the day of the trade.

Is that still cool? I'm still a little confused about the 2 hour window.

Thanks,

Andrew

I expect everyone to show up as close to 3pm as possible as a courtesy to other people in the trade. If you can get there around 4pm, that will be fine. Anyone arriving after 5pm will be required to deliver or ship their games to the recipients.

If you don't think you'll arrive on time, you can drop games off at the cafe before Saturday. Just mark the games with your name, the person receiving it and the item number in the trade.

Looking forward to the results of this trade. Hoping to get a couple trades. Just under 60% submitted. Let's go everyone!

Another quick question:

Is the cafe kid-friendly?

I don't speak for Snakes and Latte, but yes it is. Lots of Hasbro kids games.

Definitely. We have a full section of childrens games, including some great Haba games, available for younger children, along with a lot of the classics we all grew up with. I often see children come to play games with their parents, especially during the day, and have even seen infants a small handful of times.

I really have trouble not adding games I love but already own to my want list. Duncan has to keep reminding me that I don't actually need a 2nd copy of Dungeon Lords and Factory Fun at home! Am I alone?

'Epic' Factory Fun I can see--barely. But how in the world would you combine two copies of Dungeon Lords?

My real problem is not trading away games that I like just to get something "new".

I may have trader's regret in a few weeks...

I'm trying my hardest not to spend the next 9 hours constantly re-making and re-submitting my "wants" list.

For anyone new to math trading, some advice: Whatever trades you wind up with, remember that you agreed that you'd be happy with them! If you feel like you got a bad trade, remember that it's only because you clicked the box that says you think it's a good trade.

Furthering that, remember that the trade optimizes the number of trades, which often means that for any one of your games that you are trading away, you will likely get the trade that you wanted the least. Make sure that if you get the worst possible trade for each of your games, you'll still be happy.
