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.

My son talked me into this -- "It's a good deal since it's half off, right?" My own words coming back to haunt me...

$1.50 at GW in great shape.

I continue to be astounded by the number of variations on the simple roll and move theme. At least the cute snapping alligator jaws of this one will mean I'll be able to play it a dozen times before wanting to shoot myself. (Unlike last week's Titanic, which barely got three before I was ready to do myself in.)

I got 5 games for $4.00 at a rummage sale today. The best was this Mad Magazine game that I got for my boyfriend. I also picked up a Mad Magazine Card Game and a Mille Bornes for the card trays, a Scrabble, and a Joker Poker.

I paid $2.00 for an older Scrabble at a garage sale. There were a couple other games there, but nothing worth $2.00, especially the Billionaire that was missing most of the pieces.

Continuing the "Don't" theme, a copy of Don't Go to Jail.

$2 at GW.

In pretty good shape, but unfortunately, it's missing one of the 10 dice. We'll see if we can figure out a homemade one.

(It's the die with |Dark Blue, 2x Dark Purple, 2x Railroads, Wild| in case anyone has one lying around.)
