No problem! The OLWLG entry is up as well. I'll sync it about once a day or so.

I have a couple of these as well. If there's interest I could check the issues and condition.

I see some value in limiting small cash offers to avoid clogging up the list.

But I've got RPG items and magazines that are not worth $10, and combining them is difficult (what if someone wants 75 but has 76). If I preset the combinations it makes it hard to fill gaps in a collection.

Similarly, I see things that I like, but value less than $10.

Could we either put a limit of 1-2 sub $10 offers per person, or allow them as part of the non rpg limit.

The first option is simple, the second rewards RPG posting.

It could be worded as follows:

Replace "However, there is a minimum of $10 gift certificate." with "However gift certificates under $10 are limited to [one/two] per person"

or (changes underlined)

Replace paragraph with "Gift certificates and paypal transfers of $10 and above, and geekgold are allowed. They do not count in the above calculation as either an RPG or as a physical non-rpg item. So you can submit them without limit, but they do not allow you to add extra non-RPG physical items. Gift certificates and paypal transfers under $10 are allowed but count towards your quota of physical non-rpg items".

If you have items that are valued under $10 that you are looking to get rid of, why don't you just sell them on the Marketplace? You would have a bigger audience that would be interested.

I'd really prefer there not be any more cash in the math trade than there already is. It doesn't really feel like that's actually the spirit of the thing to me.

For me, anything that puts RPGs with loving owners is a good thing.

And the additional advantage of cash offers is that they join up loops.

That is particularly valuable in the RPG Maths Trade, as we have not quite hit critical mass yet, so trade numbers are low. This is partly the number of participants, and partly the fact that RPGs are so varied compared to board games.

Sadly, that is equally true for RPG over $10. But I prefer to try and support the Maths Trade. We need to get critical mass.

I'm going to put up my White Dwarf issues as a bundle, take it or leave it. I have no use for them and I rather see the whole bunch (6 issues total) go at once instead of going through the hazzle of selling them individually. I'll have to look up postage first though, since they are just over 1kg. Could be cheaper to do two piles.

Looks like I have White Dwarfs 11, 16-22, 34-35, 37, 39-43, 45-46, 49-51, 53-58, 60, 62-63, 65, 67-68.

Drop me a message if you are interested in them, and I'll try and figure out some listings and check condition.

If anyone sees something in my "For Trade" in my profile that I have not added already, speak up and I'll add it to the trade. I don't want to overload the list if there is not interest.

I have extra Dragon mags, from the #70's up into the #200's if anyone wants specific issues let me know and I'll see if I have them. I know I have an extra #55 the only Erol Otis cover with fiction by Gardner Fox.

Yes, pretty nice shape too. What should I bundle it with? / What are you interested in, in this mag, I could find issues with similar topics.

Someone was offering a set of Gygax Magazine as an option in the Chain of Generosity. I don't think they where chosen, I'd be into those.

Sorry for my delay in responding. Was traveling for work, sick, etc.

As for the cash option, we originally had that off and requested it put on. A few math trades ago I added it as an experiment and didn't have any issues. One or two math trades ago I added in the min $10, bc there were some entries for ridiculously low amounts (like $3 or something like that).

I have no issue with keeping it on or removing it. However, no changes to the rules will be made until after the math trade. After that, I'll open up a few polls and we'll vote on the changes to the RPG MT rules for the next one.

Fully agreed about the spirit, but cash offerings are apparently the grease that gets these trades running. If those $20 lead to an additional loop, that probably isn't such a bad thing.

But yeah, I'm a bit ambivalent about this, too.

My issues are: 65, 67, 69, 78, 84, 87. Covers are a bit roughed up, but pages seem to be intact. I'd like to divide them into two items, due to postage costs.

Okay, I checked the OLWLG for stuff people want and uncovered a few things that I'll list.

There's also some odd BGG stuff that popped. I tried to do some match-fu and failed completely. So, let me know if anyone is interested in:

Grimslingers
Dreamblade - I have some stuff dumped in a box for the last 10 years.
Kung Fu Samurai on Giant Robot Island
Pocket Football

Some of the things are in storage, so I'd be more motivated to find them if someone was interested.

If this is a breach of Math Trade etiquette, let me know and I'll delete it.

I'm looking to clear out my shelves, so if there's something that I've put on the submission list that you want, drop me a PM. I'll do my best to find at least one thing to try to trade it for. It doesn't mean you'll get it, but at least it probably won't end up with an empty want list.
