I picked it up as I've heard of it on this list. Too bad it looks like a stinker of a game. It's complete with the exception of the Fujiyama 'yard'. Anyone got an extra? Or a scan? $1.99.

That Risk urge kicked in again and I picked up another copy at a garage sale for $3. It was in great shape and had seen very little play. Unfortunately, it was not the only purchase and I put it on top of the car while I stowed the other item. And yes I drove off and saw it slide off onto the street in my rearview mirror. A kind soul helped gather up the pieces (I am sure I missed some) so it will be useable. But I broke one of the plastic cases.

Ok...there are 15 Goodwill's in the Nashville metro area. My wife and I decided to see if we could hit them all in a single day. We only made NINE goodwills, but also found 3 others called Southern Thrift, Thrift Smart and Music City Thrift. Including those...I know of at least 21 thrift stores in the Nashville metro area. Now, as the day wore on, I was really disappointed in the number of games I saw on the shelves. Either Nashville isn't very big on gaming or I was there on a Saturday, which is traditionally a bad time for thrifting. Either way, after 12 visits to stores this is all I found THIS time.....

A rather incomplete copy of HeroQuest at the Goodwill Outlet in Nashville for $.25. It's not missing a LOT but it is missing some things, might be able to piece it out. But I picked it up because I found THIS in the box......

This isn't a board game, but rather a shrink wrapped copy of the PC version of Kingmaker from AH. It cost me $1.50. I'll probably Ebay this.

Just one find this week - picked up a complete copy of this for 50p from a car boot sale.

Another random euro find within a sea of puzzles and copies of Cluedo and Monopoly.

Not quite an end to my dry spell but a brief shower

Found this one on the west side for $3.99. Sold pretty well last year on eBay. Let's see what happens this year.




Also saw a Pente black tube but passed on it. At $9.99, I had to figure it was too expensive to profit from it on eBay, and I don't need one for myself. Besides, I hate it when Goodwill gets up on their high horse.

Of course, I could have hoped for some Geek lovin', but that might have been iffy. What do you think? Go back for it?
