We start each week with our friends Burt & Ernie. Don't let that peaceful scene fool you, Bert's about to crack and plunge a sharpened rack into Ernie's thick skull (to many suspicious triple word scores with Qs and Zs.

I actually had a really god start to the year including a grail find for me.

However we did take time to gut five sets for the racks and tiles (four of which already have been sold for $11.99 each plus shipping). Average price was $1.99 and they were found at various locations through out The Valley of the Sun.

Chess. This one is from Greece and made by Manopoulos. It is a Zinc set - hand cast and varnished - based on Posideon and Athena and other various ancient statues. Looks like it sells for north $100 on Amazon and E-Bay. I found it for $5.99 at GW in Phoenix. Looks like it was never played. The set is complete and the metal raised board is also in excellent condition.

The figurines in this game are absoluately awesome. It was the only reason why I picked this one up. Unfortunately the game board was broken in half. All the contents (except the figurines) were missing except the die. I should have looked at the figurines a little closer though as they are chipped in various places. The box is also in poor shape. The upside is that it only cost $1.00 at Hospice of The Valley in Scottsdale.

Kids of Catan or rather Les Enfants de Catane as it reads on my edition of the game. The bits in this one are fantastic! Its well worth looking for. Again how does the French edition of this game wind up in a sleazy neighborhood GW in Phoenix? This one was 1/2 and only $0.99 because of the color tag. That also means, since I visit this GW once every other week, that I missed it a couple of times before. I'll bet a saw just the Les Enfants and discounted it. Shame on me for not investigating it more.

Two of the roof pieces came off the Townhall and needs a spot of glue to secure them again. There is one split corner as well. Downloaded the english rules from Catan's website.

Thus ends our foreign langauge exploration.

Last but not least was this grail. I had been after this one for awhile. When I started this thrift run, the first ten or so stops were pretty dry (found a scrabble and that was it) so I said I am going to stop at Bookmans in Phoenix so I can at least remember what games look like. Sitting there all by itself on a shelf was this gem. $18.00 though. But hey its Battlelore! Bookman's shrinkwraps all there games so they all have to be inspected and opened as sometimes they are missing pieces. I did notice on this game that their price tag was on the shrink, not on the box where they usually put it. Does that mean that this game was brand new...????

I tear off the shrinkwrap and discover that all the pieces are there, still shrinkwrapped and in brand new condition. Battlelore - Brand Spanking New (and not a repurposed French edition either).

Very Happy with this keeper

$2 at Goodwill, again. 2 days after I thrifted one at another Goodwill.

Missing some pieces, but combined with the other incomplete copy I have an almost complete copy to donate to my FLGS game library. Still missing the ball, passing die, and one yell D6. No biggie.

Not sure if this is considered thrifty, but what the heck, vote with your thumbs. Barnes & Noble has these half off and since I'm going to be out of town when they hit 75% off I decided to:

A) Use my gift cards from Christmas
B) Actually sign up for a B&N card & see if I come out ahead this year
C) Stockpile in advance to see if I can flip them for a nice profit on Uber-bay.

3 copies in shrink, $26.97 each.

I ducked into our nearby GW and saw this on the shelf. I did a count and it's missing piece (a medium sized purple "ball", if anyone can help) but I grabbed it because it is the perfect kind of game too give to my son -- well made and functional, even without some of the pieces.
