Do you remember a couple of weeks when I had my Craiglist Haul? Well, I was contacted by the seller that she had more games to sell, and I could make an offer. Not as good as the first haul, but still good.
First up was a game I didn't care too much for, but since I made an offer on the lot, I'll include it. It's a version of Memory that uses German buildings for the tiles. Couldn't find a photo, but it's called "stadtebauten memospiel".
$2.99 at VV. Really nice condition for a 35 year-old game. Haven't counted the counters, but they're color sorted into Ziplocs, so that's a good sign. Not really my thing, so on to the trade list it goes.
Local flea market, used (and box taped shut ), complete and in good shape. AU$2. I hope my son will like this. Two of the three games sound quite good, the third is just dominoes with cards - oh, well.
Found the version pictured at a Half Price Books, like always, not the best thrifter, since I don't really frequent Goodwills, so it cost me 7 bucks, but I don't mind. I am lacking in dice games in my collection, and this seems like a Can't Stop type of game, so I'm glad I got it.
