$0.99 Goodwill. Interestingly, I had just played the game for the first time about a week ago and had a bad experience with it due to it possibly being a bad game, poor rules teaching, and an immature fellow player. So, it was very surprising to see this game at the store. Decided that maybe I need to give this one another try. But it may still be a bad game. All cards and dice complete and in almost new condition.

£1.00 at a charity shop in Brentwood a gaming friend showed me on our way to our London games group (apart from 6 books and a CD it was a dry thrifting-day otherwise) shake

Well this one is from ValueWorld for 95 cents and the box and the tape monkey (not to be confused with the game piece) had quite a battle. The box lost and will never win a beauty contest. Inside everything is in pretty good shape and it is complete.

Another one from ValueWorld. This one was 40 cents. And I'm glad for that because although the tape monkey was kind to this one -- it is missing all the villian cards and one of the girls' bases!

Heard a lot about this one being a classic from long ago, but I apparently missed it growing up. This one appears to be a 1979 edition. Despite some box wear, the components inside look almost new.

I want to try it out just to try it out, and will probably play with the kids. Garage sale for $1.

1960 boardgame from Cadaco. Box is hinged and unfolds in half to reveal game board map of the world. Components are stashed away in a compartment inside. Components appear to be complete except for some pegs that could be replaced. Box/board itself shows the worst wear, but still looks good for almost 50 years old.

Looking at rules, it has very much a Euro feel as you move to different ports, buy different kinds of cargo, and sell it at other ports for differing amounts depending upon the original port and the selling port. Game is over when all cargos have been purchased.

Garage sale for $1.

My first thrift find! I already own it and it makes a good drinking game and for kids. This one was $2.99 and complete, including a nice plastic bin for sorting the chits (one of which was replaced by a quarter, so this only $2.74). I saw "Hunt for Red October" but didn't buy it... Anyone want me to go back for it?
