Giant Math Trade over on BoardGameGeek

The Cabin Fever Math Trade already has over 1,000 items, two of them mine.

Math trades work by having all participants submit a list of other games on the list they'd prefer in exchange for their own. A computer program crunches the numbers in order to maximize trades between participants. Very slick except that:

1. I already have several games acquired in math trades I've barely played,
2. I have only a few games in my collection I really want to trade right now, and
3. The cost of shipping makes trading a non-starter in many cases.

I've got an extra copy of RoboRally in the list right now. It'll cost me at least twelve bucks to ship the thing. Heck, $12 is half a game already.
