Oh, I also found a first edition of Stephen King's "Under the Dome", for $2.92, a book I had never heard of, but that my wife did a happy dance about when I gave it to her. I like Stephen King, but have not read all of his work.

I was with my family at my mother-in-law's house having dinner for my wife's birthday. 7:30 came and I had to go home to give my cat his insulin. On the way back to my mother-in-law's house, I stopped by the Goodwill, after not having been for a while, and first saw an in shrink Rocketville. It's an AH, but already have it, and have no desire for another.

And then my eyes caught sight of a GOOD AH! $4.99, but I had to get it.

Got back to my mother-in-law's house just in time for cake too!

Found this new at a local "upscale" thrift store for $6.99. Was complete, unpunched and still on sprues!

I actually already have a copy so this will be good trade bait.

Since thrifting after work is becoming...shall we say...difficult, I decided to take a run at lunchtime today.

Down to Goodwill to find the racks had a few new things on them. This was up first - has batteries and it works - for $2.99. I already have the full size version and thought I might try and sell them together.

Next to it was this neat tin of Bowling Dice for $1.99. I grabbed it, thinking I would put it in the Dice/Card Generosity box that is making the rounds.

However, a co-worker who really, really, really likes dice games to play with his kids kept begging me for it. "Can I have it? Huh, huh? Can I? Please? Please...."

Sheesh....give me the $2.99 and get out of my office!

And although it seemed to be a dicey day (yeah, I know, lame) I also found a game I've seen on the list a few times lately.

This one was $2.99 Still need to count the cards, but looks to be complete - still has the piece of foam inside to hold everything in place.

They had written their name on the front of the box in permanent marker, but when I got home I used a dry erase to clean it right up.

And since I was able to get out of work in a timely fashion, I made a quick stop at Salvation Army.

I've never seen this game before - and it's really a bit different. The game play really seems a bit lame, but the dice are pretty cool - and the box is really sturdy with a magnetic flap, and it's lined for dice rolling! Plus all the different dice are pretty cool.

Oh, and since there's only 1 picture of this on the geek - !!

1946 Parker Brothers game.

50 cents at church rummage sale. Pretty sure it's not complete. Old, beat up . . . not sure what I'm thinking, but the board just looks so cool that I'm thinking of displaying it as "game art" in my apt. This will be seen as only further evidence of my insanity to my non-gaming friends.

A bit of a story behind this one.

Our local gaming guild meets twice a month, and I was excited to have time this week to attend the Friday night session for the full duration -- normally I only get to go for part of the time (if I get to go at all).

Unfortunately -- being the family man that I am (not usually being able to attend this early) -- I mistakenly thought that the game night started at 6:00 (instead of 6:30 -- the actual start time). I rush through the grocery store to pick up snacks for the game night, and decide to bypass Goodwill since I'm running a bit late (just a couple miles out of my way, but I already went there twice this week and there was nothing).

I pull into the gaming venue, and the parking lot is empty -- it's about 6:00, and I'm the first one there. The doors are locked, so I go back to my car.

"Boogers!" I think.

So I backtrack several more miles now to go to the Goodwill that I skipped. I nab a Scrabble off of the shelf for the zombie's (first Scrabble I've seen in months -- quite literally). Our inventory has been running very low, and my wife will be glad to be able to list tiles again.

I also nab a copy of 25 Words or Less -- I remember playing that as a kid and trying unsuccessfully to locate a copy -- so even though it was a tad beat up, I still grabbed it just because there wasn't much else.

I scour the shelves twice to make sure there isn't anything else (there isn't), and I start walking to the front. The line is long, so I'm standing there talking on the phone, and happen to glance up at the antique section where there are old dolls and whatnot.

Whoa -- that green box looks familiar.

I walk up, and -- sure enough -- it's a VERY nice looking copy of Subbuteo. It's taped shut quite heavily (which is odd, because this Goodwill usually rubber-bands everything), but otherwise the box looks pristine. I pick it up (dropping my copy of 25 Words or Less in the process), and head back to the checkout line (which has grown). I pay for my purchases, and go immediately to the game night, where I relate my tale of finding Subbuteo, and everyone is anxious to look inside. It was a fun unveiling as we slit open the tape and peeked inside -- MINT! It looked used, but *extremely* well cared for. Figures are complete and in extremely good shape. All instructions are uncreased and appear complete -- even the styrofoam insert looks beautiful. No dings, dents, or markings on the box (thankfully they didn't marker it).

When we slit the tape there were appropriate "oooh's" and "aaah's" from the gaming group -- it was a really fun unveiling. We didn't get to play it, but we had a lot of fun opening it up together -- kindof like digging up a treasure chest and peeking in as a group.

Subbuteo "Club Edition" -- $1.50 at Goodwill.

This edition of 25 Words or Less, mentioned in the above Subbuteo story.

$1.50 at Goodwill -- not yet inventoried. Box is a bit beat up -- not the least of which damage was caused by me dropping the game while trying to juggle my cell phone with the other two games.

When I got to the game day, another friend gave me games that he'd thrifted for me. First up, another Yahtzee Jr. for RoboDerby: Express dice.

Free (to me) -- I think he paid $0.75 at Goodwill

He also gave me a copy of Zathura he found -- I believe also for $0.75 at Goodwill (though it was free to me).

The ship minis are intended to pimp out my copy of Alien Frontiers -- I think they make fantastic replacement scoring markers.



Sadly -- some of the ships are bent (but not broken) -- we'll have to see how well hot water can help me bend them back into place. (?)

Also bought a copy of Junta off of one of the other guys in the gaming group for $7 -- he got it from a friend's regretted Tanga purchase, so I picked it up to give to a friend who I know enjoys the game.

On top of these acquisitions, we got to do some fun gaming! I'm sorry I missed gaming with:

Sorry Michael -- it was good to see you, but I'll have to try harder to game at your table next time.


Overall, a pretty good evening!

Was just telling a coworker of mine how I thought his kids would love Blokus...

sure enough, $2 at Goodwill! I think my coworker's kids will have a nice surprise come Monday.
