Same $25 lot, just the figures.

Whew! I don't know what it works out to per figure, but I thought it was worth taking a chance.

The big question I have now is whether these are worth anything without the terrain pieces, dice, or cards.

I've had good luck with this game. Bought it at Target a few years back for my nephew and he loved it. Found a copy this Xmas as a present for a fellow gamer/thrifter. And then yesterday, found my very own copy at Savers in RI for $2.99. Box is a little dinged, but all the components are there! Yay!

Picked this up for $2 new in shrink....out of a bin of 15 of them. I'm considering going back and buying up more just to sell. They seem to draw maybe $12 on BGG but I don't know if they really sell well.

Question to ReSellers: What profit margian isn't worth the risk for you? If you see a game you can sell for $5 higher, is it worth the trouble?

$2 new in shrink...then I went to a different thrift store a mile away and saw a box of them for $1 each along with more Palatinus! (I overpaid! I feel cheated!)

This one is a Reiner Kinzia so the demand maybe higher.

Question: Should I buy up extra copies to sell or trade? What do you think?

Anyone up for a trade? I'll probably play them myself at some point.

$4

My Risk group kept telling me I'd like this game. So I was excited to pick it up. But an hour of sorting parts gave me fatigue. I believe everything is complete. I haven't counted yet.

The thing is I'm not sure who I would play this with. I'd like to try it once, but it may go up for trade/sale in the future.

EDIT: I found a nickel inside. cost was actually $3.95

Also found this at a different CT Savers. $3.99 as well, conversely was surprised at the low value of this on the auction sites.
Has the One Ring still sealed in its little plastic pouch. All the cards & dice there too. Not sure if all the figs are there-looks like it but I don't see a total number anywhere? Anyone have any ideas what the total is supposed to be?
edit-Never mind the counts are listed right in the Geek entry for the game-sorry.

I already own and like this, so this copy will go up for sale/trade. I found it still in shrink, but beaten up. The shrink wrap is off in 2 places and some graphics have rubbed off.

How would you describe that condition?...Should I list it as New (with a more detailed explanation of course) or like new?....Would you say it was battered by gravy?....Involved in a food fight?....Perhaps faded gravy?....Gravy dropped on the floor?

Got out of the office for some fresh air, so a coworker and I headed to Goodwill. He is forever hoping I will find more dice so we can make our sets of Chunky Fighters.

As I approach the game racks (oh, so conveniently located on top of the children's clothing) I spot this before I even begin my way up and down the aisles. Yes, I already have a complete copy. Yes, I had a 'parts' copy. What's your point?

This one is actually in the best shape of any of the ones I found. Contents are bagged, most of the sheets still on the pad, even has the insert still in the box - and best of all, no corners are blown out.

$2.99

At this point, my coworker walks up and asks "Have you found ANYTHING with indented dice?" Well, yes and no. Here's a Boggle, Jr, but those dice are too big. Then I look up and see the back of a box.

"Hey, this has stickered...oh, wait...never mind, this is not getting raided for the dice"

I pull this down, slit the tape and I am highly encouraged. I see the original piece of foam that lay across the top of the game. Open it up, looks massively complete. I have to slap a hand away that reaches for the dice.

I'll inventory it later, but it looks good right now.

$2.99

Anybody interested in a trade?

SILLY STORY ALERT

I arrived at one of my usual ValVils to check out the games and a staff member was adding the usual crap games to the shelf. I asked her, "Do you have any good games in that cart of yours?" She smirked and said, "There's an interesting one here called "Dixt" or something like that." Well, you guys already know what I was thinking: "Oh my goodness, I've stumbled upon a copy of Dixit in a Value Village -- how cool is that!!!"

Turns out it was Twixt not Dixit. Hurrumph. But it was in immaculate condition and included a 1960s brochure on all available games from 3M. Very cool. $2.99.

It wasn't Dixit, but that's thrifting for you...
