Also at the DI was this for a buck. I've passed on it many times because it seems it is always taped up and 4 bucks or more. For a buck I can risk it.

Went to the Milwaukie SA and grabbed this. Got some broken pieces, but no biggie. This will be paired up with the one I've had for 20 years that also has a couple of broken pieces. Between the two, I will have a good set. 99 cents.

I had never seen this game in a thrift store before, and now it's the third one in a month... I took it with me for 1 euro, even though I had bought a copy already. I'll probably put this one up for trade or in a geekgold lottery.

Well what do you know, having found a big Games Workshop on Wednesday (Battle of Five Armies) I'm out today and find an even bigger box MB/Games Workshop cross over. Not sure how available this was in the UK but this is the first time I've come across it. Always see it on these lists as US finds with much envy.

All those Citadel plastic figures for the grand price of one english pound. Found in the Liskeard Animal Welfare shop. Another one to inventory - five armies was all complete this one lokks good but at that price I'm not too bothered.

This was alongside shuffleboard - 1.98 Thrift Mart. Haven't opened it yet to check for completeness but it was worth that for parts.

Very complete (at least quite playable) - missing 3 gems (of 15) and 2 1 railing. (just found one hidden in the box). Also I just read the rules and you only need 12 gems to play the game - so I do have a complete play set.

$3.99 at Ithaca Salvation Army. A little pricey, but their prices are going up - even a beat up basic Scrabble was $3.99!

Has all 8 pewter pieces, and cool castles that I could swear someone was looking for:



The metallic board is quite nice - could almost make a nice wallhanging in a kid's room.

Geekmail me if you are interested in the houses/hotels, I'll likely be parting those out.

Found this for $2.11 at the Valley Thrift in Fairfield, OH. Not much to find at this thrift usually, so was surprised to find a Sid Sackson game for cheap and apparently complete (cards are still shrinkwrapped).

A sign for a garage sale sprung up across the street from my house on Friday, so I checked it out Saturday morning. It didn't look very promising, but then I spotted the wide, colorful box sitting on the yard. Cracked the lid, complete, played but great condition. The owner said it was "a little too strategic" for her children. shake Oh well.

She suggested I pay $1, and I happily obliged.

Later in the day I noticed that the garage sale sign was written on the back of what appears to be one of their children's childhood paintings!

Also saw a bocce set on the lawn next to Blokus at the same garage sale. It's a Sportcraft Rivoli bocce set. It's really heavy! Heavier than any bocce set I've carried before. It seems nice, and there are a few parks nearby where it would be fun to play this.

Another $1 at the garage sale.

Thifted eastward today, heading Doug's direction, but only as far as Marshfield. First, found a copy of Mummy Rummy at St. Vinnie's. $1.00. I love the prices at the Marshfield St. Vinnie's. Every game is a buck, no matter what. Cower in shame, Savers!

I seemed to recall this having better ratings. Hmm.

On to the Marshfield GW where I picked up a Battleball for $2.99. I've passed on this so many times I've lost count. No idea what prompted me to pick it up today.

Complete, except for two d6. Big deal.

Then this abstract from the 70s. Also $2.99. No clue why I picked this up either, but seeing it on the shelf, gave me instant flashbacks to the pages of early Games Magazine. I remember ads for this thing back in the late 70s.

There's one of four included spare pegs missing, so this is complete at 35 pegs.

Finally, this. $1.49. Totally ludicrous, which is the only reason I bought it.

Was a rarther slow day of searching. Usually there are a couple of the Goodwills that have a decent selection of games, not today. Looked like someone went to all the local Goodwills before me and totally cleaned them out. This was my one and only find today. I wasn't too sure about it, but it was only $1.50. Then I saw it was from 1960 and made in Western-Germany, that made it a little cooler for me. Game is complete and in good shape.
