Finally,

So, all of these for a mere $4. Glad I could help that thrift store finally unload that bulky heroscape package.

Uncle Milton's Ant Farm Game. $1.99 at Goodwill.

A short coincidence: Yesterday, I thrifted the Hungry Ant game and my grandsons and I fiddled with it for a bit, making tunnels with the tiles. It doesn't actually have any pawns or minis with the game, just food tokens and tunnel tiles.

The two grandsons have been involved with me spicing up games with extra characters, minis, things to make the game a bit more fun, like using Clue minis to enhance Clue: The Great Museum Caper. All of you know what I'm talking about and most of you do the same with your games.

So my six-year-old grandson Jordan said, "Grandpa, what we need for this game is some ants." I looked at him and my chest swelled with pride. "You got any ants in your toybox?" He shook his head, sadly. No ants.

I told him I'd keep my eyes peeled for some ants to use if he and his brother would also look around. Well this morning I thrifted this game, Uncle Miltons Ant Farm Game. But guess what comes with the game--four brightly colored, inch-and-a-half long, beautiful, plastic ants. When Jordan and Josh saw the ants, they were thrilled!

So we all agreed to use Uncle Milton's ants in our Hungry Ant picnic game. It works out nicely. I got beaten soundly, but it was a blast. I got zotted twice.

Excellent condition, I think the best I've seen from a thrift store. It's the version shown, only in English and French. Bi-lingual all the way through except for dollar amounts. And except for some tape and a few scratches, it's a very clean copy. Goodwill, $1.99.

I was happy to find this older version of Stratego, because my daughter has one of the newer ones and she swore that the numbers on the pieces haven't changed over the years; that the Marshall has always been a '10' and the scouts have been '2's. I told her, nay young one. Marshalls are number one and scouts are '8's, miners 5 etc.etc.

Now, I proved it to her last night with this game version. So she challenged me to a game and promptly whupped my arrogant butt. But I won the mental challenge, right? Yep.

A nice wooden cube version of Risk. Box is a bit faded and beat up, but intact. Pieces are fine. Cards seem unused. Red insert with blue cards. I wonder if it just sat in a closet for 40 years. Goodwill, $1.99.

A quick stop into a nearby VV put this game in my hands for $2. Unfortunately it looks like someone else's parts copy. It's missing a playing piece and two maze tiles, yet it has twice as many treasure cards as necessary.

$1 for a word game that's not in the database. The New york Times
CrossPuzzleWords game. No rules but apparently you can play three games with it. Looks interesting. It's Dominoes with preprinted 3x2 crossword puzzle fragments on it.

The one that almost got away.

Well color me surprised. While we were at PawsNClaws today I picked this up, shoved it in one of the bags of kids magazine we also picked up and promptly forgot it existed...until...I went for a cup of coffee a few minutes ago and stumbled over it in the dinning room. Its a neat sort of basic gamers kit that I will probably stash away in the car for when we are out on the road. You never know when some one will need to discover tanagrams or chess. For a buck, sure why not.

Looks like I'm down to about one thriftworthy find per week. But this one is quite the rare find.

I've had a mild jones going for the game ever since I heard it reviewed on The Spiel earlier this year:

http://thespiel.net/?q=node/213

Imagine my surprise to find this rather expensive game lying on the floor of my local GW. Looks like 'dad' wasn't all that impressed with his gift; or perhaps "The Old Duffer" drained his last shot and MaMa donated his treasures to charity.

I didn't even see it at first, as the floor was literally covered with toys, dolls, and other crap, including a wee tyke of eight or nine, merrily scattering more junk up and down the aisle. I warned the little bastard that if any of the poo he was 'flinging' hit me there'd be hell to pay--which meant that immediately a ball he'd tossed creased my toe. "Sorry", he muttered.

I picked up Box of Golf and moved away to check its contents. All the boards were there, some of the gems, but no figures and no dice. Guess I'll have to mock those up for myself.

Still, a bargain at $3.99(regular retail, $40.00).

FURTHER RANT: Left behind on this trip was a 3M Acquire, which was priced at $6.99. Who the hell do these people think they are?!? GW got the game donated them for free!! Their cost is limited to paying someone minimum wage(or less, and yes, they can and do it legally) to price and stock.

So, I put Acquire back on the shelving cart. And I may swallow hard and re-visit the store today. Or I may just leave it for some other Portland Geek to find...

Also picked this up for $2.99. Left it behind on Thursday as I was pretty sure it was a clunker, but after reading up on it a little it sounds like it might make a semi-decent game to play with my daughter with a little rules modding. It was still there Friday so now it's mine!

It's been so dry here that I jumped on this game at the GW for $1.88. Even though the title says 'for kids' it was interesting to me because it's unusual to see an abstract marketed for children.

There's a blurb on the box lid that screams 'designed by a Yale professor' so I figured it was probably 'educational' = terrible.

Imagine my surprise when I found out it's highly rated, and even has an 'extreme' version available for adults! I might have to try this one, and if I like it put the more complex version on my abstract wish list. Play is similar to the old 3M 'Ploy', but you get to design the pieces as you go.

The roll-up playmat is really high quality and pretty cool, and the wooden pieces are a bonus. It's only missing one wooden peg, easily ignored or replaced.

I was much more excited about finding this abstract for $1.88. It was untaped, and even though the pieces were loose in the box, they were miraculously all there! It even had the rules.

Unfortunately, it's rated right in the basement. In fact, it's on dozens of GeekLists with titles like "Worst Game in My Collection," "My Worst Thrift Find Ever," and "Game I Would Be Most Likely to Vomit On Just to Make it a Little Bit Better."

Even for $1.88, I'm beginning to think I might have gotten the shaft on Shifti.

So I went to the Bene Gesserit this morning, but didn't find much. I was able to resist this voice in my head that was telling me to get Pretty Pretty Princess, and headed down the street to the St. Vinnie's. I finished off a fifth of whiskey and headed in.

First thing I saw was this, which looked so bizarre, with what looks like Ron Jeremy on the cover, I had to pick it up. $2.17.
