I was going to just tack on to the Recent Thrifty Finds Geeklist, but I realized just how many games I had picked up over the last few months and figured it would be easier to just write my own seperate list. There are 5 thrift stores in my general area, with 1 of them actually in the town I live in. I try to hit that one about twice a week or so. The others I try to hit whenever I get near them. The following games are in no particular order, I am just adding them as I remember them.

Might as well start with stuff I found yesterday. The first item I found is a Carrom/Crokinole board. It is a cheap version made by Merdel Games. Cost, $4.00
I have never played either game, but from what I have heard here on the geek, it was worth picking up. I will post some pics of my version later.

For $1.50 I could not pass up the chance to annoy my kids by talking like Mork! Oh, and it has big foam eggs.

This is the version I picked up. Well actually, my wife picked it up. She thought it would be one she would like to play. It still has the price tag from K-mart on it for $3.97. I paid $1.25

Picked up this version of aggravation for $1.00. It is one of my wifes favorite games. Her parents have a homemade board and tend to break it out just about every time we are over. I figured having a copy of our own couldnt hurt....much.

Another one picked up by my wife. Since she is not into games as much as I am, I told her to pick up anything that she thinks she would like to play. This hasnt made it to the table yet, but I imagine it will soon. Cost: $2.00

Already had a copy of this picked up on sale not long after it came out. But when I saw this one at the local goodwill for $3.00 I could not pass it by. Complete and never played.

A mostly complete copy with halfway decently painted figures, I mainly picked it up to fill in the stuff that was missing from the copy a friend gave me a few years ago. This is the type of thing I keep looking for but never seem to find, well, I guess I did find it once... Hopefully one day I will find an expansion or two.

$4.00 or $6.00 I can't quite remember.

Got this one for my boy. Anything pokemon, yughioh, duelmasters, or dragonball z he goes nuts for. For $1.00 it made him happy.

Picked this one up for something like $2.00, I had seen that it seems to be a fairly popular party type game. I was not disappointed. I was laughing so hard while playing this with my normal gaming group that I thought I was going to pee my pants a little.
