What is a Math Trade?

Math Trades provide gamers with a way to trade away unwanted games for other players' unwanted games. All participants submit their list of games available for trade, and which titles they're willing to received in return (for each submitted game).

How does it work?

Ummm... This is where it can get complicated to explain. So let's use an example.

Miss Heart owns Game Green that just doesn't get played as much anymore. She puts it up for trade. Mr. Square has Game Orange that's also up for trade, that Miss Heart is interested in. Unfortunately, Mr. Square is not too keen on Game Green. In this case, no trade would occur.

But, what if Miss Heart can exchange Game Green into a game that Mr. Square would trade for? Like Miss Diamond's Game Gray. Miss Diamond isn't big into Game Green either, but would be interested in Mr. Circle's Game Yellow. Mr. Circle is interested in Game Green, and is willing to trade Game Yellow to Miss Heart for Game Green.

Miss Heart then swaps games with Miss Diamond (so she's now in possession of Game Gray), and now can go to Mr. Square for the Game Orange she really wants.

Now, take that above example, increased to multiple more opportunities and possibilities, and let a computer figure that all out... and that's a Math Trade.

Ok, I think I get it. So now what?

With your boardgamegeek account, you can put together a list of games you own, and are willing to part with. This will be open to everyone up until the "Submission deadline" (see Quick Summary).

Once the "Submission deadline" passes, everyone can see all the games that are available for trade, and you can then submit a "want list" for your games (ex. Game Green, which you own, for Game Orange). It's also possible that there are no games you're willing to take back, for a game you own, in which case you would submit a blank "want list".

After the "Want Lists Deadline" passes, we let the computer crunch the numbers and see what trades do occur. You'll be informed of the games you need to submit, and which ones you'll be receiving. Then its a matter of dropping by the Game Centre to say good bye to old games, and bringing home new titles.
