Aussie Mid Year Maths Trade 2014
This is proudly brought you by the same old team. Participants please read and adhere to the rules.
This trade is open to Australian BGGers only.
This trade is open to board games, expansions, card games, game accessories, RPG, video games and the like. Please don't add anything else. If you intend to allow a game to be exchanged for cash (i.e. you're selling), include the amount you will accept for it in the price. You may consider compare current market prices (ebay, BGG market, local shop). The cash value is for the MT purpose only, so any off MT dealings are person to person.
Golden rule: SENDER PAYS SHIPPING. Even if you're selling a game for cash, or you post from Perth to Townsville or Hobart. So, make sure you set your price high enough that you would be happy to pay shipping to anywhere else in Australia out of that money. By posting an item to this list you are agreeing that you can and will mail it anywhere in Australia at your expense. Avoid any conditional trades (such as pick up only at BorderCon, etc).
Items included in the maths trade are expected to remain as part of the maths trade until the closing date. If your intention is to sell an item there are other alternatives in BGG to do so. If an item is not longer available for whatever reason, please DELETE it. If you decide to drop an item from the list, please do so before the due date of the game submission deadline. List order will be as per submissions. Note: your items could end up with a different item number due to deletions, so please check the official after the geeklist has been closed. Refer to the deadlines below.
After closure of item submissions, DON"T DELETE your items. If you don't want to trade them anymore, simple submit an empty want list.
Provide as much details as possible (edition, language, sleeved cards, game condition, etc). Pick a picture that represents the game you're offering if there are multiple versions or publishers. If necessary, take a picture of the game, upload it to your gallery, and use that image. Feel free to use the game condition rating previously suggested by petegs to describe your items:
New in shrink - which means never opened.
Opened but unpunched - I've looked at the game but not punched counters yet or stickered blocks etc.
Opened and punched - Looked at, even punched counters etc but haven't played.
Opened and played.
Count pieces to make sure the games are complete, and accurately list any components that are missing or damaged. Please look at your trade pile to make sure the game is really there. In order to make your items more (or less) appealing, you may want to add one or more "sweeteners" to the item listing -- an expansion, a related game, or a completely unrelated item that you think will make it a more desirable package. Items for which there is no BGG listing can be listed as Miscellaneous Game Accessory.
Cash option is available. Australian BGG registered users can participate even without submitting an item to the trade with the cash option by submitting want list before the due date.
Maths Traders will not be required to add cash value to the geeklist - that will be handled in the want lists. In the case that a buyer offers more than a seller is asking, the buyer will pay the seller's price.
There is no limit of items to be submitted in this trade. Duplicates of items already on the list are fine. Traders can combine multiple games into one item (e.g. 7 Wonders plus expansions).
Keep comments for listed items to a minimum. There is a separate thread for any ad hoc messages. Also, refer to the BGG forum conditions and adhere your responses to them.
