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.

Hey my luck is changing! Again at the Port Angeles GW in Washington State. Paid $3.99 for it. Unopened until I opened it. Not a scratch or dent on it. Puzzling. This one is staying in my collection. Now the questions: Is it any good?
And this grail of mine as well for $2, been looking for years for this one! Complete except for the pawns, but the tape monkeys had taped all the edges of both covers with painter's tape. Don't know if I can salvage a photo from this one.
