Shipping costs have pretty much taken me out of the math trade scene. I can no longer rationalize paying anywhere up to half the cost of a game just to trade it for a different game.

I can respect that position. For a slightly different perspective: I'll happily pay "up to half the cost of a game" that no longer hits the table for a new one that will be enjoyed at least once - and hopefully for many sessions of fun.

Well, those of us who live in the bigger cities are lucky enough to have big local Math trades where we don't have to ship, so it is less viable.

2. There is a limit of one (1) Gift Certificate and one (1) Geek Gold entry per person.



It would be nice to still be able to participate though, and while the above permits us I would like to suggest maybe having the limit at 2 each? (You know, like a potato chip, one is never enough...)

Just my 2 cents, I see why the limit is there. Thanks for running the trade

I'm having the oddest bug happening when I try to edit one of my entries
Tide of Iron: Normandy
I had no problem with Britannia but with this entry it won't let me select Outside the Scope of BGG so I can remove it. I have a local that's interested in both of these games so I wanted to indicate that. I can always just do the blank want list thing but it's strange that I can't edit it that way. When I go to type in 'Outside' the only 2 options it gives me are
Outside the Znutar (1980)
Surprised Outside of Strass (2007)
When I did Britannia it gave me the choice of Outside the Scope of BGG
Can someone enlighten me to what I'm doing wrong? Thanks

You could try bringing it to the attention of one of the BGG admins. Not sure who handles stuff like that though.

I still participate in the shipping trades, but I'm definitely a lot pickier about my wants. (Notably, I'm not going to put a $20 GC on my want list for something that might cost me $15-18 to ship...)

Not sure if it's intentional or not but user hamiltongamer posted 2 different entries (#s 573 & 577) for The Speicherstadt.

Wants are submitted for the time being.

I'm regretting not adding 1989 to my GMT lot. I have a feeling it's just the wrong value to trade, but who knows. I get to play the waiting game on that one.

I am unsure how this one will go for me. Wants submitted. Looking forward to results. I have 3 games submitted, I am betting I trade 1.

First trade in over 6 months. Shipping killed it for me too... but in this case (trading Quarantine) I'd rather see more copies out there!

I'm wondering if there's anyway to check if I've done the duplicate thing right. I've never done this part before so too sure if I've done it right. I can just take out one of the two games just to be sure of course.

I don't see any arbitrage or anything else funny so I'll call these results OFFICIAL.

Thanks to everyone for participating. If anyone is interested in any of my items that didn't trade just send me a geekmail.

Only one trade, but I'm happy with it: I pick up Jaipur, which I've played on Yucata.de, and I think my wife will like it.
