Couldn't believe I found this on a slow early week on games at the thrift store. About the only thing worth looking at. $7.99 and complete!

$5.99 at the same store. Low ratings but most are rated on one play or less. I'll have to try it out for myself.

$1.49 bundled with Rainbow Fish card gane and Willie Wonka Go Fish (Burger King give-away). Curious hybrid of dice and cards.

Napoleon: The Waterloo Campaign Game. 1977 Avalon Hill.

Complete and in excellent shape. I've never actually played a block game before, and this looks to be a interesting one. A great bargain at 99 cents.

Can't Stop. Parker Brothers 1980.

Box is a bit beat up, and it was missing several pieces. But I took a tip off BGG and found replacement pieces in an "Advance to Boardwalk" game. Now it's complete except for one white scoring marker (anyone have one..? )

Despite the extra work, I'm very happy. I was looking to trade for a copy, but I'll take 1.99 any day.

Not exactly a Thrift Store find - I remembered this game when I saw it at the Geek. So I drove to my parents house (mum's birthday) and went on a "Search and Find" mission. After a while I found my copy (from 1982) lying under a sofa - still mint and unplayed.

Hm, this says something about the placing of the sofa I guess.

But, hey, a game more for my collection and one more that surely will be played now.

I found a copy of Bandu complete and in great condition for $4.50 at a flea market. I also found a great "matchbox" double-decker bus for $3.00. I've been searching for that ever since Paris Paris came out, to replace the cardboard bus it came with.

While out on the same trip, I found a hobby store that had a few games for sale, and came across a shrink-wrapped copy of Avalon Hill's Guerilla. I passed that up, though, since I already own it, but I was tempted to grab it.

Woo Hoo! Only $1 at a local thrift store! Complete. Good shape. Some tape holding the flap closed but an otherwise sound box.

I'm going to play this with the family but I'm torn as whether to keep it or sell it. It'd be cool to keep it just to say I have it but if I sell it, I can buy more games that might get played more.

Never heard of this AH bookshelf game. I'll add it to my trade list and see if anyone wants it. Only 25 cents.

Also picked up another AH Aquire. 25 cents.

Found for $0.49 at a thrift store (half price day) and is complete and it looks unplayed. The game seems almost completely random though. Any strategy to this?

Not a thrift find, but a "bargain" nonetheless...

Picked up this and Pitch Six at a KB Toys outlet for $1.56 combined, with tax. The comments on the geek are mixed. I'll probably try the games at some point, as card games seem to go over well with the family. But even if I don't like the games at least I have 3 nice unique decks of cards I can whip out on occassion.

Found this for $4.00 at a consignment shop on our annual trip to Bayfield, WI. I'd been looking for this one for a while. It was the discovery toys version. Looks like it was played once. Grandma won and the kids never played again...

$3.99 and I'm sure I could have talked them down, but why?

I'd never heard of this Victory Games(!?) product, but with a name like this, there's no way I could pass it up. Looks like it's a Yiddish trivia game! I'm not a trivia fanatic, but a quick look through the box provided some serious chucklage - plus, it was all there, including the pronunciation cassette tape!
