Okay, sometimes a Geek has to list a really crappy find in order to piggyback on a comment about a really great find--either because the better deal isn't in the BGG database, or the deal isn't really a game...

Solotaire, found at St. Vincent de Paul for $1.00... Truly a kinda crappy game that one could play with ANY deck of poker cards and ANY FLAT SURFACE!

BUT...

At the same thrift store, I also found a complete and unused copy of Johnny Horizon Environmental Test Kit, also for $1.00. That's right, all the test tubes and beakers and chemicals and special paper strips



SAVE OUR TREES! That's right, we need them, so we can make paper and cardboard...how else do you think Milton Bradley was able to make those GINORMOUS boxes for games like Torpedo Run?

I'm a little bit curious about how this one plays. It was missing 1 red colour piece and has one extra grey piece. Go Figure? Also some of the French cards are missing. Luckily, I can read English.

This is my week to find...and actually buy, absolute STINK! And I paid full price at Saver's: $1.99! Well, at least the pawns are kinda cool, so I cannibalized them for a slighty less stinky game (below)...

...Mutual Mania. At least two peolpe thought that this game was an "average game," and noted that they could "take it or leave." While the previous game (Stock Market Tycoon), fared more poorly, and was thought by at least 5 people to fall somewhere between "bad" and "extrememly annoying."

...So, I guess I did ok for $1.99. Lucky me...

I found both the original unplayed, still shrinkwrapped 1997 edition and a gently-played 2000 edition with "All NEW Cards!" that are supposed to be a bit more difficult. $1.99 each.

Bonus: If I remove the insert, I call fit all the components for both games in one box...and the newer edition has a pretty snazy box, I must say.

Found this today. $8 Candian. I think it will be kind of fun.


ALSO: found a game called Amnesia that is not in the database. I have added it and am waiting for approval. And yes, I am sure, it is not the same game as the current game of the same title.

Another one in the geek with no image, more geek gold! It's kind of like "score four" with pegs and wooden balls. You have to score 4 in a row to win. The difference being that in this version you can even do it in an kind of spiral arc as well. $.99 Goodwill.
