Wood! I was disappointed that the included storage bag was plastic and not cloth. I imagine Gigamic is trying to keep costs down though. $2.99 at Value Village.

2 sets of 7 polyhedral dice, one orange and one translucent orange. $2 at a local antique store. One of the few things that didn't seem overpriced.

My wife loves to play abstracts and she generally kills me at them. So when I found this at HPB with my 15% coupon in hand, I decided to snag it for the grand sum total of $6.50. Call me a glutton for punishment for buying another abstract, but I was pleasantly surprised with the game play of this one and how fun it was. Out of 6 games played, we're 3-3. I probably ought to quit while we're tied!

This may be a week for Acquire, as I'm the second one on the first page. I found mine at the South Madison Goodwill for $3.15. I can't tell if it was played, it's complete and the money is very crisp. What was cool, is my 5 year old wanted to play it! I simplified things into a game he could play, and have already gotten my money's worth.

For those that wonder, plastic tile with a semi-transparent plastic over cardboard board.

I buy these just for the indented dice for PNP purposes

I now have:
16 yellow
13 red
17 black
14 blue
5 light blue
1 white

indented dice make some decent PNP games out there (such as Chunky Fighters.....however, if someone is like dying to get there hands on these kinds of dice for PNP/prototyping let me know I can always trade for a game.

With baseball season approaching and three boys playing varied levels and trying to mitigate the cost of new equipment that quickly gets outgrown and worn before it can be hand-me-downs, the brood headed out to a couple thrifts having 1/2 price sporting equipment sale. Imagine the surprise when we saw the whiteboard sign listing the sale as "Toys, Games and Sports Equipment." So, in addition to a $4 drop-7 bat and some $3 cleates, we gobbled up some games.

First up Domination for $1.25. All pieces accounted for and a nasty first play won by the 7 year old doing a move I advised him against until I realized it resulted in him reserving three pieces and clinching a victory.

It looked and played a little gimmicky,zombie but the kids enjoyed it.

All pieces there, including 4 working C batteries, which I guess more than offset the $1.50 cost.

As we were leaving my son goes, "hey dad, what about these games?" and motioned to a plastic tub partially hidden - but completely full - under a clothing rack.

Immediately I thought, "A-ha!! The motherlode! if I dig deep enough I'm sure to find a shrinkwrap Merchants & Marauders under here! Maybe even that Honus Wagner card I can retire on!!" Alas, it turned out to be mostly puzzles, but there was this game, which became the favorite of all of our pick-ups. All pieces intact, lightly used.

Early in the first game, to show the guessing power of being caught on spy alley, I used my free guess to accuse my 7 year old of being the Frenchman, though it seemed obvious to me he was not, but I did it to demonstrate the mechanism. Unfortunately, he was the Frenchman,soblue
Some tears ensued, but ultimately we formed a team, and won as the Spaniards!

$1.50 at aforementioned thrift. Good game.

Saw a couple 3M's sitting there too, and I do enjoy Mr. President, and well, in for a penny in for a pound. And in this case, this only cost 50 pennies, so seemed worth the price to get a word game into the mix. All items accounted for, in really good shape. Nice racks too!

And the other 3M sitting there...

Found this version of Stratego for $2.99 at Goodwill in Greece, NY.

I normally wouldn't have picked it up, but the box is in fantastic shape (only one split corner) and the pieces are all still shiny and new! The board is in fantastic shape as well.

The whole cover/name of this seems to scream out that this game was invented before fun, but the description seems interesting, and history is a favored subject, so for $1 went for it.

Looked all intact, nice box, with all the cards and a game pad with a game "Jill" never finished, but otherwise unused.

Wait...what's this? There's supposed to be a game mat too?!? Umm, maybe under the insert? Nope. Aw, fudgesicles! No mat! cry
Oh, well, looks like a little improv can cover up for that omission.
