Dan,

I am in SLC, but come to Logan for family all the time. I also have two board game friends currently in Logan. Let me know what you need and we may be able to help.

OK, I'm a noob at this and want to make certain I handle the OLWLG correctly.

First, I don't have any duplicates in the list so I know I don't need to worry about dup protection on the wants side currently -- and I know if one comes up later, that there's that nice geeklist/instruction set.

But, am I safe in assuming that if I am willing to trade any of my items for any of my wants, I basically just go through and check EVERY box? So if I want games A and B and am willing to trading both X and Y, I check four boxes? I just don't want to end up needing to have 12 copies of Wooden Ships and Iron Men... shake I assume that the algorithm assigns X to the first game it matches, say A, and then invalidates it for every other trade (game B) -- but we know what happens when you assume.

On the flipside, if I am only willing to trade X for A, and using the four game example above, I would only check 3 boxes: X-A, Y-A, and Y-B. X-B would be unchecked.

Ultimately, I don't care so much if I end up messing up and not getting what I'd like while giving all my stuff away, but I really don't want to leave any of you in the lurch because of my understandings.

Thanks folks!

Close... if you're only willing to trade X for A, out of games X and Y that are being offered and A and B that are games you have, you would only check one box, X/A. If you check X/B that would indicate you're willing to trade your game B for their game X as well.
The OWLGL does automatically keep track of how many games you're offering, so if you list, say, Pretty Pretty Princess as a game you have and you're willing to trade for pretty much any game, even if five people say they want your game, you'll only end up with one trade, and one copy going out. Where each game or game with sweeteners is an individual unique listing, the OWLGL will try to link each listing up with another, then that listing falls out of the equation if successfully linked.
Hope this helps, feel free to ask if you have more questions

Thanks Dan! I actually did have it right in my head in the X for A trade -- I just inadvertently swapped games owned for games wanted. So, my bad.

Basically, I've gone in and just checked all the boxes because I'd be happy to get anything for anything I'm offering. I'm not expecting much, if anything, out of this trade because I don't really feel like I have much to offer. (I'd be happy to be proven wrong, though.) Plus there are some time constraints to figuring out what I'm willing to trade -- what I offered is what I could find quick to offer.

I should REALLY be packing for my trip tomorrow and hitting my bed -- instead I'm on BGG...

I can tell you that I'm hoping for Wooden Ships and Iron Men, as well as the Thieves World game, and wouldn't mind a copy of dragon dice and Tara, so at the least you should be able to get trades for those I'm willing to bet you'll be pleasantly surprised

Last call for new entries!

There is just over an hour left to add games to this math trade. There are already 430 items for trade, which tops the 355 we had last time. Let's make this even more awesome!

Don't take the ones I really want!

I thought I might be first to submit a want list, but nope, I was 4th.

I'll probably go back and edit it again tomorrow anyway. whistle

I submitted my want list right away, but have changed it about four times. I predict that I don't get any trades this time around.

A small plug, but if anyone is interested in any of my games listed, which don't trade, let me know and I would be willing to sell them at a reduced cost and bring them to the swap. FYI.

I hope more people finish their trade lists and the total number of trades rise.

Last time 30.1% of the items traded.

I think as zero hour approaches, people will open up their wants a little more, so they will get more trades.

Likewise. I was wondering if someone should set up a virtual flea market for delivery at Boardgame revolutions whistle

Also, will people be sticking around or showing up early to play any of the games as well, or is this basically a show up, get stuff, get out?
