Summer has finally arrived and it's time for another Canadian Math Trade.

Please make sure to read through all 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: The Igloos are Melting - A Canadian Math Trade

Request GeekList: The Igloos are Melting - A Canadian Math Trade - Requests


Submissions Dates/Times:

Posting Games: Tuesday June 12th (9:30 PM EDT) to Monday June 18th (4:00 PM EDT)

Want List Submissions: Monday June 18th (4:00 PM EDT) to Wednesday June 20th (11:00 PM EDT)

Results posted shortly thereafter.


Rules (Please read carefully):

1. Board Games, RPG's, Video Games and items outside the scope of BGG are all permitted.

2. There is a limit of two (2) Gift Certificate and two (2) Geek Gold entries per person. Gift Certificate and GeekGold arbitrage are NOT allowed. Neither are cash offerings.

3. 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.

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.

It might be a *bit* soon for this one, with the open math trade not really even finished yet ... but I'll still throw some things up anyway.

Yeah but in that math trade 75% of the items were ineligible for Canadians.

Hoping to get some good participation from coast-to-coast in this one.

Not disagreeing (you could find items in that long, long list that I specifically thanked them for offering shipping to Canada), but I think a lot of us made trades all the same.

I'm also not saying "Boo, why would you do this? *rabble rabble*", so don't take it as such. ;P

Tradeables are low, want list is short, and trying to get more plays out of the games I have with the gaming group...

But I'll list a couple things anyway, because I can't help myself.

Yeah, I made out pretty good in that MT, although it took a lot of effort to sort through which items were available to Canada (and even more to try to factor in any extra shipping costs)... so I always look forward to these Canadian MT's!

Excellent! All we need now is a crapload of more users here to add some games to this math trade. Looking pretty dead so far.

I need someone to put up The Castles of Burgundy for trade.

Yeah, wishful thinking I guess.

Okay, how about Medieval Merchant.

3 days left to add games and we are now just over 200 entries. Not bad, but we can definitely do a lot better!

I didn't make any trades. Pretty much everything I wanted wouldn't ship to Canada. I decided to stick with these Canada only trades for a while (plus the worldwide RPG trades).

Make sure you read all the rules and ask any questions if you are unsure of anything. Don't want to have any unfortunate problems after the trade has concluded.

Hey, we're over 250 items now, so that's much better. To put it in context, I looked at the Canadian MT's that have ran over the past few years & they've usually averaged around 400-500 items, so we're on our way!

2 days to go and we're almost at 300 items. Hopefully there will be a bunch of new entries over the weekend.

Interesting. The math trade gateway tool will not let me add any wants....any ideas what I'm doing wrong? Checked the wiki page, and still, no go.

Have you logged onto it (seperately from BGG)? You should see "Welcome puggeroni" near the top of the screen. If not, you'll have to request a logon geekmail & then link into it from there.

Hmmmm, Try just clicking the Add button next to an item on the full listing page:

http://bgg.activityclub.org/olwlg/viewlist.cgi?listid=143395...

Then view http://bgg.activityclub.org/olwlg/mywants.cgi?listid=143395 to see them listed and you can check the boxes there.

Edit: Or listen to Jason who probably has figured it out.

You are either not logged into the OLWLG (you need to request an invite at the top of the page), or you are doing something wrong.

Did you check out the math trade tutorial videos that were linked to at the top of this page?
