A similar list was done in 2009 and then again in 2010, but I figure we could do a more current one (plus there are a lot more users on BGG who thrift these days compared to then!)

Looking for mass market games you often see in thrift stores that are not Euros and not (necessarily) valuable, but are worthy of being purchased & played.

I'm not sure how to quantify 'often' so just use your best judgement. Again, not looking for Settlers, Carcassonne, etc but more along the lines of Milton Bradley, Parker Brothers, Ravensburger would probably be okay, etc.

I added a couple to get the list started

Note 1: Please avoid adding Publisher entries, but rather specific games.
Note 2: Fireball Island and Dark Tower are not considered often seen in thrift stores, so don't add them I'm even on the fence about games like Star Wars Epic Duels

Similar lists from previous years:
Common Thrift Games That Are Worth Purchasing from 2009
Common Thrift Store Games that Are Good Enough for Your Collection from 2010

List will be sorted by title to prevent duplicates

A fun old-school game, doesn't show up in thrift stores as often as it used to, but well worth the few dollars it usually costs when it does.

Classic economic game. Turns up frequently on the thrift lists and is totally worth a try. I've heard that the current edition (by Hasbro) doesn't have good components, but there are still 3M & Avalon Hill editions to look out for.

Not only can the pieces be used to replace ones missing from Can't Stop, but this is also a pretty decent game. It's been awhile since I played it, so maybe someone others can elaborate but nonetheless, this one has been in my collection for awhile.

This one turns up quite a bit and is a lot of fun to play with the right group. The Junior and Kids versions are also great games to play with the wee ones.

If you are a fan of word games, this is something you will find a-peel-ing, so don't "slip" up and leave this behind!

I have seen this many times at thrift stores, and finally took a chance and bought one from Savers in a hanging bag (thankfully it was complete!). Bananagrams is a great (and much quicker) alternative to Scrabble, and comes in a cute banana shaped bag ready for travel!

I actually view it as a "game system" because you can play a lot of other word games with the tiles (making it even better for travel!). Here is a geeklist of other games you can play that I have been working on: https://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/254992/item/6844567#item6...

I think this is showing up less frequently, and it often isn't complete when it does, but I've picked up 2 or 3, and have pased on probably 10 other copies. If you see it for $2-$3 and don't have it, I think it's worth it. It's simple and fun.

It's pretty heavy on luck, but the tension of the dice is a lot like the tension before real football plays. It's pretty easy for kids to play (if you are a parent), and can be a lot of fun with adults and adult beverages. The downside is it's for two players, and a little long, so it's not a good filler game.

Don't know about US thrifting but this makes fairly frequent appearances in UK charity shops. Another decent Trivial Pursuit replacement, great for family get togethers.

Blokus as well as Blokus Duo are pretty common finds and great abstract games. If you are only going to play 2 Players then go with Travel Blokus/Blokus Duo instead of the larger Blokus

Careers is a great game for families and teens. It was a neighborhood favorite when I grew up in the 60's. Each player sets his own secret success formula for winning the game. The rules are not complex or daunting. You have many playing options and there is also a bit of luck involved. High replay value.

Look for the 50's/60's version with eight original career paths (Farming, Prospecting, ...) or the revised '71 version with renamed paths (Ecology, Sports, ...). Avoid later editions with fewer career paths. Also stay away from the reportedly terrible Careers for Girls.

Best version of Clue, IMO. HP theme is well done. Only change I would recommend is to halve the number of any House Points assigned (rounded up). The House Points penalties are way too brutal.

I've thrifted this several times and had a copy for myself for the longest time before getting around to trying it. Very enjoyable, works fine with 2 players as well.
A few issues came up in the rulebook but the designer was nice enough to answer questions which can be found in the forum

I think this game is undervalued since it was one of the first that I had ever purchased that didn't include a die. A game of pure bluffing where you are trying to get the Briefcase of Secrets into your HQ by moving spies, but nobody owns the spies. Each player is free to move any spy at all, but they battle over the 'rights' to that spy by making deposits into each spy's bank account.

I would say pick this one up, but don't try to play it with three, this is surely a four-player game.

Not only is this a fun party game, it's also cooperative, where you're all working together to guess all the cards before the timer runs out. So if you have friends for whom even regular party games are too competitive, then this could be right up their alley.

But it is also quite a bit of fun for any party gamers, with some unique types of challenges, and attractive cards with often-interesting pictures of the subjects to be guessed.

We often play this as a closer. I'd skip the music and decades versions but the rest are fine. I have not tried the new star wars one but I don't think that one would be fun as this game is most fun when a wide variety of words are used.

Not necessarily that common of a thrift but unlike its boardgame big brother, this is a decent little game that actually teaches some life lessons. Do I go to college or do I start my career, do I delay a family for work, do I save for a rainy day, etc...

This can still be found as a thrift buy now and then.
And it definitely can be found on the bay, often not very expensive.

It doesn't look like much and neither the bits or the graphics make it seem very tempting, but inside it is actually a pretty interesting abstract.

Yes it's a dice game, but it's much more than a roll and more game of chance. Your fences moves and you choice of pieces to move, make for some very interesting strategies.

Worth picking up if you can find it.

Often found in thrift stores, this is the game that actually brought me into the boardgame hobby after discovering it as an adult! This is a fun game, especially for families. I think the older versions have wooden pawns, but the newer ones with different character pawns are a lot of fun.

I see these games quite often in thrift stores, and decided to buy the Egyptian themed version (and I lucked out because it came with the expansion pieces!)

Board Game: Laser Chess


If you like abstracts you should definitely give this a try! Because of the lasers (you might have to replace the batteries, but found right kind at Dollar Tree) many non-gamers are actually interested in trying this game too.

A dominoes variant. A lot of fun actually and very nice bits.
A great family game. A frequent request to play at our home.

This one can sell okay but the market is so flooded it's hard to compete with so many out there. Fortunately, it's a pretty fun game to play.
