This is the traditional weekly thrift and bargain finds list.
Yay, my first ever GeekList!
These lists may start empty but as always, add your items.
Put in what you consider a bargain, tell us how much you paid and the place you got it from. Bargains can be thrift store finds or any second-hand purchases or discounted boardgames bought new. Don't forget to add your encounters with the Thrift Store Irritant Squad™, the Tape Monkeys™, and any other embellishments in order to make it even more interesting.
The Weekly Thrift List Wayback Machine The Grand Vizier is maintaining a list of all the weekly thrift lists through time, and will be adding stats and interesting tidbits for each week. Your Thrift Store Bargain Finds Through Time

Stopped at GW and found Axis and Allies for $5. I debated whether to get it, but my curiosity got the better of me. The box has a bit of outside wear. Two of the bombers have broken wings, but the broken pieces are in the box so I should be able to glue them. One of the Russian soldiers doesn't have a head The rule sheet says there are supposed to be 15 infantry men per army. All of the armies have 17 except for the Americans which have 14. Not sure what the deal is with that. If you have any insight on this let me know. All other pieces are present and accounted for and overall it seems to be in good shape.
I have never played this game, and the closest game I have played to this is Risk. I am going to give it a try and see how it goes. If nothing else, I know some teenage guys that might be interested in having it.
Picked this up at Salute too for, a fiver. Its missing the rules, but I brought it because it has a pristine set of deck plans (to replace my dig eared ones), an unpunched counter sheet (to replace the one I had damaged years ago (drink spillage)) and a OK (but dog eared copy) of traveler suppliment 7 traders and gunboats.
