This is the traditional weekly thrift and bargain finds list.

These lists may start empty but as always: add your items.

Put in what you consider a bargain, tell us how much you paid and the place you got it from. Bargains can be thrift store finds or any second-hand purchases or discounted boardgames bought new.
Don't forget to add your encounters with the Thrift Store Irritant Squad™ and any other embellishments in order to make it even more interesting.

Last week's list:
Check out the quality and quantity of last week's loot.

At first glance, it looks like at least a ship is missing, but I have a parts copy, so I can put together a complete game for selling.

Goodwill, $1.99.

Missing timer and about four cubes. So it'll be good for parts or just to hang on to for the next incomplete I find.

Goodwill, $1.99.


I also picked up an Advanced Dungeons & Dragons Castles game for the same price. I listed that one on the RPG Thrift list.

SA, $3.26. Cheap set, looks like it's never been used(plastic stones in bags, stapled shut). My first find of a go set at a price I'd pay.

The Toys
Us at the St. Laurent Mall in Ottawa, Ontario only had this Heroscape set left - no Master sets.

However, since I had a coupon from a box of cereal, it cost me a total of $0.00 at the checkout.

So that counts as a bargain, right?

Don't spill the Beans $1.99 at Goodwill...

Tape encrusted, but opened it just to make sure it was complete.


Edit: Not only was it completed... Just went to play it with the kids and it is unplayed. Beans are still sealed in a plastic bag and the label sheet has not been applied.

I made it to my monthly games club in London yesterday (whereas gypsies stole the train company's overhead copper powerlines last month) and I stopped off on the way to check out the charity shops in the freezing cold.

£1.25, complete and excellent condition. While not as crazy on e$ay as the adult version (£50-£110) I sold one a year ago at £30.

It's been about 4 years since I last saw one of these and since I needed an extra red arrow to complete it I figured it was worth picking this copy up for £4 at Farleigh Hospice. Complete and good condition (although someone put a small hole in the back of the box on the face of the guy doing a decent Mark Hamill impression).

A nice dice cup for $2.99 at VV. It had poker dice and 2d6 little all-metal dice that are tucked away in a button flap on the underside of the cup. It's basically composed of stamped leather (maybe faux), cardboard, and felt. One seam is coming off, but that's an easy fix.

Found this in a local Half Price Books, and it caught my eye first because of the pirate theme, and then I saw Knizia's name attached to it.

I figured for $4.98, new in shrink, I couldn't go wrong. Worst case, I'd have a good gift for next Christmas' white elephant gift exchange with my gaming group.

Haven't gotten to play it yet (just got it yesterday), but seems like it'll at least be a light filler.
