TRADES HAPPEN: Saturday, November 8th (drop-offs 10am-Noon, pick ups until 3pm)
LOCATION: The Board Room Game Cafe - 1256 Barrington St, Halifax
Please only enter games in this trade if you will be physically present in Halifax at The Board Room, between the hours of Noon and 1pm. Tables will be marked for dropping off and picking up games, and will be monitored by during the designated hour. Please aim to have your traded games dropped off no later than 12:30pm, and pick up your new games before 1:00pm.
Note - Anyone participating in the trade will not need to pay The Board Room's $5 admission fee during the hour of the trade. However, anyone staying to play games after 1pm will be subject to this charge.
If circumstances become such that for any reason you cannot appear in person, you will be responsible for making suitable pickup/delivery arrangements (including shipping costs if required). These details must be arranged in advance, to inconvenience your fellow traders as little as possible. Please inform the trade organizer by dropping an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Boardgames, boardgame related items, Video Games, RPG items, Gift Certificates, GeekGold and non-gaming nerdy items are all permitted. There is no limit to the number of entries each person can have. Gift Certificates are permitted (especially convenient if they're for The Board Room!), but GeekGold arbitrage is not.
Non-game entries must be added as "Outside the Scope of BGG", "Miscellaneous Game Merchandise" or "Miscellaneous Game Accessory" and must include the +altname+ brief description -altname- format in the description of your item to ensure they appear properly in the OLWLG.
You must describe, as accurately as possible, the condition of both the components and box, language and edition of your item and any sweeteners. You must also inventory the game's components and list anything missing and/or damaged. If you do not, the game must be complete, in like-new condition and be the most recent English edition.
Please - Do not delete or remove items from this List! If you cannot trade the item as listed, please follow these steps:
a. Edit the geeklist item
b. Strike out the old text: [ - ] [ /- ] (minus the spaces)
c. Add this to your item: "+altname+ Item Withdrawn/Relisted -altname-",
d. Change the entry Game ID to 23953 (Outside the Scope of BGG)
e. Be sure to submit a blank wantlist for the item.
You may include more than one game or sweeteners in your offer. GeekGold may be Traded. Additional games/sweeteners must be listed in the main item text using GAMEID formatting. Example: Coloretto is Coloretto, entered as [ G A M E I D = 5782 ] (without the spaces). To find the Game ID, go to the game's BGG page. The Game ID is on the right labeled "ObjectID:" The same ID is also embedded in the page's URL. If you don't use this format, your sweeteners won't show up in the OLWLG properly.
Work on your want list and submit it early to avoid unpleasantness. You can make changes and resubmit it at any time during the submission period.
Have fun and good luck with your trades! If you have any questions or comments, please drop me a GeekMail.

Awesome Geeklist on Math Trading
It's best to work on your want list early since you can always make changes and resubmit your list anytime before the want list submission deadline.
Creating want lists is not the same as submitting them. You will receive a confirming GeekMail message when you submit your want lists (it may be truncated). If you don't get one, your want lists haven't been submitted properly.
Use of the OLWLG (On-Line Want List Generator) is required for this trade. If you have never used the OLWLG tool before, please read the wiki page. Please consider tipping JeffyJeff some GG for his ongoing support.
