1. Board Game: 1870 [Average Rating:7.43 Overall Rank:727]

Well, for some time now, I have bemoaned the fact that Metro Vancouver thrift shops seem to have had little to offer the discerning thrifter these days. Perhaps it is the rain. Anyway, adopting the philosophy that a change is as good as a rest, I decided to cross the mighty 49th parallel and visit some thrifting locales in the great state of Washington. Mercifully, I found some goodies!

First, I am pleased to announce the acquisition of 1870 -- a fairly rare thrifting find, as far as I can tell. This was found at Goodwill for $3.99. Really, really nice condition. The box has some minor scuffing. The contents, however, were in amazing condition (except for the one dead silverfish found inside the box). Perhaps most impressively, the game is complete. This is a major score, as far as I am concerned.

When I first grabbed the box, the top was barely able to contain the contents. I wasn't sure why the box was so full until I got it home. Delightfully, there was a copy of the video game Railroad Tycoon II. Complete with all its bits (except the box).

Next is Battle Cry -- found at a different Goodwill for $3.99. Opened, but seemingly never played. The condition is immaculate and the contents are all accounted for. I am especially pleased about this as I recently got to see all of Ken Burns' documentary The Civil War (finally).

The cashier, who (surprisingly) knew a lot about the Civil War, was terrifically impressed with this game and told me that I should visit Gettysburg. Next time I am in the forest named for William Penn, I will.

Next is Acquire. Now, I've thrifted this several times before, but it has always been the Avalon Hill bookcase version -- this time was the 3M bookcase version. Big whoopy-ding? Maybe, but it was only $1.99 at Value Village and I like 3M.

I convinced the wife to spend our anniversary weekend together shopping. She got to pick some stores, and I got to pick some stores, so it worked out well.

I picked the thrifts, of course. Our route was the usual:

Unique Thrift in Evanston
Salvation Army in Skokie
Thrift and Gift in Skokie
Salvation Army in Niles
Wings Resale in Niles
*detour to drool at the games at the FLGS*
Goodwill in Arlington Heights (we didn't end up making it here)

The first stop, Unique, was fruitful, as usual. Two games I've wanted to thrift but have never found! The first was an unpunched, barely open Risk Revised, that's complete! I don't know what to do with this since I just got a copy from the Thrifting for You! geeklist. Oh well, I'll figure it out. If anyone wants to trade for this, I'm in a cheap-o mood.

$2 at Unique.

Also at Unique, I found a very nice copy of Cranium Hoopla! I have wanted this for a LONG time. This version doesn't have the wild chips... should I keep looking to find one that does? What's the difference in gameplay?

I just love the concept of this game. The wife and I played it almost as soon as we got home, and it was so much fun, even though we got creamed.

$2 at Unique.

Thrift and Gift was closed, so we swung around to the other Salvation Army, in Niles.

The shelves were full, but mostly of $4 copies of Clue, Jr.

But the wife spotted LOST: The Board Game for $3.06.

Normally, I wouldn't get this, but she seemed interested (we both liked the show well enough, as do our friends). If we get a play out of this it was worth it, and then I can recycle the hexes for a PnP game!

This one has an odd story.

The rest of the thrift stores were busts (overpriced party games and copies of Yahtzee Jr. with no dice).

The FLGS was having a sale, and I ALMOST pulled the trigger on Thunderstone (should I go back and get it?).

Then we hit the department stores. I made sure to eat a cinnabon as soon as we got to the mall so I could sleep while the wife tried clothes on, but it wasn't meant to be.

Once we got to a certain women's clothing store, I was forced to hold the 'maybe' clothes while the wife kept shopping.

Lo and behold, as I live and breathe - I picked up a pair of jeans and there was a single indented die from a Clue, Jr. set underneath.

So I snagged it - FREE at a 'certain women's department store'.
