At an estate sale I spent $1 on a little pocket peg chess set, with plastic pieces and a wooden board, and an attached case that wraps around to make it into a little 4.5-inch-square bookcase item.

My thought in acquiring it was that it would make an excellent "reading set," for working through published games while reading books on chess. Turns out it's an E.S. Lowe edition from 1942, possibly with significant collectible value.





I've submitted the version info to BGG, and it's pending moderation. cool

Over the last 3 days I've found some really cool stuff. I'll start with my $3.99 pur haze of Sittng Ducks from Tuesday Mornings. I found Portobello Market there a few weeks back and it has been a big hit. This looks light-hearted and fun, kinda like Guillotine or Tiki Topple.

Also $2.90 at Savers. The reviews on this make it sound mediocre, but. Decided to pick it up anyway; it looks really cool. I think that is what convinced me to give it a try. That and the price...

And what I consider my best find recently. This for $1.90 at Village Thrift in Woodbridge. It's in like new condition and i've frequently been curious about it. I just read the rules and it seems a little like a combination of Gene Pool meets Tiki Topple after having an affair with Babel. We're talking real brain burner stuff... The wood bits are fantastic!

I started off at the flea market today but there just weren't that many game/toy dealers and I came away thwarted on the game front although I did get some great deals on some other things: Shriner fez, $5; canvas newspaper carrier bag, $5; shot/measuring glass that measures tablespoons, .50. After I left the flea market I went to a GW that I rarely visit, and since it was Sunday, the day after a 50% off all clothing sale, I figured the store would be in shambles and there wouldn't be anything restocked. Was I ever wrong! The first thing I noticed was the game shelves were completely stocked and lying around the corner was a World of Warcraft: The Board Game! It was only $3.99 and heavy enough to merit a shopping cart which I proceeded to fill. Despite the rush of finding a $100 board game for only $3.99, I was slightly disappointed when I went to inventory it and found several monsters and all 16 hero figures missing. Other than that, the game looks mostly complete and I would estimate that it's 95% complete and in good condition although one of the corners is split.

Got it for $2.30 and it's the 1991 edition. Not sure how many teams are supposed to be there, but I got 26 in mine. I'm fairly interested in this game, as my gf and I both enjoy baseball. Personally I say the Brewers could trounce the Twins in such a game. We shall seeee.

I thought my luck was done for the day but since there was one more GW nearby, I figured, what the hey? My jaw hit the floor when I saw a HeroQuest on the shelf, and when I opened it up and discovered it was unpunched and the figures were still on the sprues I thought I was going to need a diaper change! This could be my greatest day of thrifting ever! Only $2.99 at GW#2.

Hit the GW on the way home today. We've got plenty of word games already, but this one is well-rated. Plus it was half-off, so only 99 cents. Complete and looking like it is unplayed. The score pad is intact, with no pages torn off.

I picked up to games tonight, and it only ran me 2.50 total, I wish I would have picked up the All American Football while I was there, maybe next time I get to town.

Of the two, on first look I thought that even if they had this one marked at 1.50 it was the less of the find. After getting home and pulling the tape off of both boxes I realized I was wrong. This was complete and after sitting down to play my 6 year fell in love and was upset that it was bedtime instead of getting to play a second game.

The other game was a disappointment.

This was the second game that I picked up, owning one copy all ready I figured for a buck I could pick it up and easily trade for something that I didn't have. after getting home and pulling the tape off of it, I was disappointed, as it was missing ALL 22 figures and the ball.

Got this at the local Arc thrift stone for just $1.98.

Almost good condition. Parts complete, and some in unopened bags. A full sticker pad with only two stickers used already on the plastic parts.

The only serious problem is one of the plastic supports is warp. That blue thing pictured below. So when setting up the game, it's does not line up with the other. Any suggestions?

So i went to a ton of thrift stores saturday and just about gave up at my second to last stop, a savers. I was leaving the building when i noticed 3 tubs of board games in boxes just outside the door. I look in the box and this is staring back at me. I grabbed it quick, it had been opened but felt heavy so i grabbed it for $4.99

I Found this the week before and passed on it. When I got home I looked it up here, and since it was on Tom Vasel's top 100 games of all time I decided to splurge the $2, even though the games closet is pretty full.

My copy is a French Ravensburger edition. Although the box has 'full game' written on it, one entire team of components is missing, making it a game for 3-5 players instead of 3-6. The game is pretty beat up, it seems to have been played a lot. Upon closer inspection, all the heads of all the drivers have been cut off. I wonder what the story about that is; I think revenge must be involved.
