Picked this up at the local VV... It was $4.99 but is it worth keeping? It's missing a bunch of little bits. The cards are all there and are pristine. One or two of the mini's are missing I think and some little bits and two of the special dice.

SOLD, within hours of posting on Amazon $40.00. Probably helps that the next price for new/in-shrink was $149.99. Who would pay that for Battleship?

I ran across the 2005 edition (Classic Waterworks) for $2 at Salvation Army. The wrenches were still in their sealed baggie and the cards were sealed tight as well. The $17 sticker from The Family Store was still on it. I wonder what the story behind this one finding its way there is.

Missing a few pieces, and the board, which I somehow failed to notice until I was home.

Fortunately, Spare Parts Resource List to the rescue! Looks like I'll have a complete set shortly.
