Barbarossa, 1.00 euro, missing 7 arrows but still playable.

so that was FOUR Spiel des Jahres winners, 1986, 1988, 1991 and 1999, for 4.00 euros.

Here's one that I almost missed.

The shelves, they are yet again void of anything worthwhile. I blame the bus strike. Nobody wants to be on the streets at all these days, so that must be what's caused the lull in donations. Anyway, I take a look at the dangling sacs of oddity.

What? That's not what we're calling them? Well, it is now!

Anyway, in a dangling sac of oddity, there is a Blink. It's the spanky keen metal tin version. And it's still in the blister pack. There's no way I can resist this! And it will be an absolutely perfect game for my son.

"Hey Dad! I want to stall before going to bed. Can we play a game?"

"Sure thing son. How about this little 2-minute jobby?"

I'm such a nice guy.

Blink. Metal tin version in shrink. $3 at Value Village.

I saw a listing on CL for someone selling a whole bunch of mass market games. I wasn't going to post what I bought because none of them are too exciting ( mostly weird lisenced games like the Mr. T card game) but I'm bored so Ill throw up a couple of the higher rated BGG games.

Also found this for .99 cents. I started laughing when I saw it because a few years earlier I went into Value Village and saw someone holding a copy, looking it over, and I kept hoping "put it down" I'll take it. But alas, it was not to be. But yesterday it returned to me. Looks unplayed, but the box had a split on the corner. Anyone know how to fix these in a reasonable way without sticking tape all over it?

My apologies. I just checked out the Guild and found exactly what I was looking for. Geeks are awesome.

And finally this, they had the original game and Nightmare II as well, but I figured this one was worth checking out.

My little girl has been really into pirates lately. She's 3 years old and likes being ridiculous.

"Daddy, let's dig for buried treasure - I marked it with an 'x'" (this is usually a jewellery box filled with plastic beads and necklaces that she covers with a brown blanket instead of dirt)

"Arrrrr"

"Daddy, you have to walk the plank" (my wife made her say that one)


Anyway, I was doing some errands on the weekend, and found this at Value Village for $4.99. It looked like fun and it fit in with my little girl's recent pirate obsession.


It's in really good condition, except it's missing two pieces of gold (shouldn't affect gameplay at all, but I like things that are complete).

I also found this - I was excited that it was an AH Bookcase game for $1.99.

However, it doesn't seem to be that well received by the rank and file here at BGG.


Although it might provide some pointers on how to survive the current market collapse.
