Ok...I doubt I'll have anyone green with envy this week but this is what I found so far. Picked this up for $.49 at Goodwill.

The cover alone was worth the $1.99 CAD I spent at Value Village. At first glance it looked as though it might be interesting, but it's rank on the geek makes me believe otherwise.

$1.99, St Vincent. Complete, and in nice shape. Another one the 10 yr old might enjoy playing.

The one I picked up might not be Italian and out of focus, but I'm sure the $2 I spent will make a great children's gift.

Oh yeah..I almost forgot. I found this at Goodwill for the unheard of price of $3.99. Don't know who was pricing THAT day. It looks pretty much unused from the early 1960's.

Some poor soul dumped their baseball game collection. There were two Strat-o-matic boxes, but one had all the boards, tables, and bits, and the other had all the cards. Between the two, one whole game in average shape (for its age) and some extras. A buck for both, and ...

Two Statis Pro boxes, a base game and the "Classic" add-on. Both boxes had this cover design. In excellent shape, both for another buck.

I'm keeping these, will likely give away the Strat-o if I can find the right kid. I *hope* someone will play me someday. In our youth my wife and I played another baseball game, can't remember the name (hmm, where can I look that up?). We were living in Germany listening the baseball over Armed Forces Radio, and we'd put a game on and play at the same time. That was fun.

We also had marathon sessions of Stock Market, the version with the plastic slider down the middle of the board. We'd play so long that there wasn't enough money, we had to keep track of our millions on paper.

Ahh, Booby-Trap. I found the cheap plastic version (not this one, I think it was actually called B-T) about six months ago and immediately pitched it, fearing somebody would lose an eye playing.

This is much nicer, wood, almost the quality the "real" Booby-Trap was. We had four adults playing it while wolfing pre-Ra pizza (that's old pizza) and we had a blast!

A keeper for my growing dexgame collection.

1968 version with all the pegs (and even one extra!) in a very fine box. Goodwill for $1.99.

It's not really a boardgame (and, as such is not listed on BGG), but, at the same Goodwill, I also found an original Spirograph WITH the original orange, red, and blue ink pens and the original little blue round-head pushpins for...99 cents!

...now, if I can just replace the SpiroTOT I had when I was little...

I found another great Ravenburger game this week--Enchanted Forest--for $1.99.
All the cool pine trees are there and the "doge"-style pawns haven't been lost or eaten. On second inventory, however, I have discovered that I am missing the card with Conderella's Glass Slippers. Can anybody help me out here?
