This is the traditional weekly thrift and bargain finds list.
These lists may start empty but as always: add your items.

One of the best copies of this game I'd ever seen. Looks nearly new. Now that I have it at home and opened it up, I see that the Badge and Key cards haven't even been separated from the pad. Unplayed condition.
Whoa! My local Salvation Army Thrift actually had games today, a table full of games! Sure, most were your common trivial pursuit type games, but I did find this among them for $2. The contents are all jumbled inside, but at a glance I believe it is complete (ie has all the figures). Got it for the parts.
A plastic carrying case with a rubber playmat and dozens of pogs including a slammer, $1. Got it as much for the case as anything. Figure it would be nice to carry monster tokens for D&D or bystanders for Heroclix/Horrorclix.
I also saw a copy of Dragon Strike for $3. The box was pretty bashed and heavily taped, and I just wasn't sure if it was a game I wanted. Should I go back?
Now that I am back home, managed to talk a co-worker into going to GW with me yesterday at lunch. There were two bins sitting out by the post where they stage things before shelving them. Sitting right on top was a wondrous tube of dice for $1.99 Awesome!
Found this on the shelf in back. Opened it up and looked in and saw the sprues, the board, the slammers and one solitary bit. Damn. Oh, wait, that's the insert UPSIDE DOWN so it looks like the box bottom! Sure enough a pile o' bits underneath.
I know, I know, there are going to be bits all over the dang house when this gets played. So guess I'll have to play it in the conference room at work here instead!
(I know I bought something else, but for the life of me, can't remember what it was right now!)
Found at the Ogden Rescue Mission Thrift Store $1.95. Missing a couple of Chits (1 Gear and 2 different costumes) but the game is still playable and the metal figurines made it worth it. Already have a couple of plays in with the kids.
