As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you, now remain in my love. You did not choose me, but I chose you, and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit, fruit that will last. -- Jesus Christ
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.
The Weekly Thrift List Wayback Machine The Grand Vizier is maintaining a list of all the weekly thrift lists through time, and will be adding stats and interesting tidbits for each week. Your Thrift Store Bargain Finds Through Time

$1, beat up box, missing one card, possibly one of each stacker.
My wife found this on her trip out to keep her from smacking me in the head (I'm a miserable sick person, I know, I wish that this "not" the flu would leave me soon). I'm sick of feeling a little better (with the meds) and not being able to walk around my house twice without running out of breath. Sorry, end rant against being sick.
I had the French Edition, and I was going to trade it but it went missing and I have not found it yet. My wife got this one today for $1. I was going to trade it but my daughter won't let me and its hers now. My wife said that the people at the store kept telling her how much fun she would have playing it. Like if you go to the store with a kid and you buy a kids game, you are getting it for the kid. What if we didn't want to give it to her? Thrift irritant squad irritating my wife. Paul, I need an airstrike.
Already own this one, even though I read 2 player games don't play that well (but played it once before and really liked it, so going to hold on to it). But I didn't need a second copy so I sold it to the guy sitting next to me at the end of the auction for $10.
Looks unplayed/unpunched... although the Gelatinous Cube has slipped loose. They'll do that, you know. On the plus side, if you neutralize the acids in a Gelatinous Cube, you can turn it into an enormous Jello shot.
$1.50, Goodwill, originally $3 but they had a 50% sale today, also snagged a newer Terry Pratchett hardcover book for $1.
I really wanted Tuf, b/c my game group consists almost entirely of engineers and well...we're math dorks. I really want to apply that function cube to something, maybe make up some derivation cubes or something...anyway I'll settle for Tuf-abet, and if it sucks, I've got 81 wooden dice for PnP, or 81 dice sized wooden cubes to pimp some games with. All for $1.50.
Plus the new $1 hardcover Terry Pratchett book, you can't go wrong with that.
EDIT: Just read thru the rules as the wife watched Gossip Girl, looks like a keeper.
