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.

$1.99 at GW in PHX.

Box shows wear from lack of love. Corners and lower edges are worn and top right of top of box has someone's initials in black marker (not too horribly noticeable.)

But inside the box....crispy fresh goodness. Complete....still sealed, unpunched, unplayed, and apparantly untouched.

Some BSG fanboy must have bought this and then took a look at the rules and realized it was tougher than monopoly and never even tried to play it.

Yesterday I read a thrift post about finding a game you just traded for. I think it was a Puerto Rico find. Just the opposite happened to me today. I have tried several times to trade for this game. I found a very nice copy at the Hillcrest thrift for $2.

1986 Pop-O-Matic Trouble at Goodwill for $2.99.

My wife has been wanting a copy of this for nostalgic reasons, so I was happy to pick this up for her, even though it's quite lacking in the gameplay department.

After many fruitless trips to the Grand Ol' Trunk thrift store in Manhattan, Kansas... I finally picked up this copy of Hero Quest for two dollars. I am not sure if it is complete, but it did have one of the expansions packed inside as well.

$2.99. Probably not worth the money, I just didn't want to go home empty handed. It will probably just collect dust in my closet since I have many other better card games. The Knizia name sold me on it, though.

$6 off a local seller on Craigslist. The lady wanted $5, but she jumped through hoops to meet me, so I gave her all the cash I had: $6.

First glance it looks complete. Bits still sealed in plastic.

Ok, these next finds might make some people roll their eyes. They were from a FLGS that had a 75% off inventory sale. I got there a week after they dropped prices to 75%. I bought almost everything they had left.

Sorry if these prices don't seem that thrifty, but all are below retail and most should be below internet/ebay, etc... I got tired of checking their online prices so if it looked interesting I just bought it.

Most everything was new and sealed, unless otherwise noted.

$10, box is in horrible shape and was open.
