Inspired by a comment from Drew1365 here:
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/14516/page/2

These are games that you pick up from thrift stores only because there are some components in the game that prove useful for other gaming needs.

15 long wooden rods in four colours, 30 shorter ones if you cut them in half. Useful for DIY connection games or network building games. Also, a donkey! Wait until you see the donkey miniature's stats for Warhammer. They are off all the charts.

I recently picked up a Lexigo game set at a Goodwill for four bucks with the specific intention of converting it to a Hive game. The Lexigo hex tiles are made out of a white bakelite type material - like a good domino set. They measure about 5 mm thick with edge lengths of 30 mm. They make a great base for conversion to Hive. The game comes with 100 hex tiles so you have plenty to make three or four basic Hive sets plus as many official or unofficial expansion pieces as you want to try.

For graphics I downloaded a file from this thread: BGG/Hive - Print and Play

By reducing that file's Powerpoint sheet to 70% I got a nice fit for the Lexigo tiles. I rearranged the images to fit on some labels I have. Then it was a simple matter to print, cut, peel and stick. The final result looks and works great.

If you have any skills with Powerpoint, you can further customize the graphics or create additional expansion pieces.

Malarky is now on my autograb list since I discovered the chips:

Board Game: Malarky


This photo shows Malarky chips surrounding a standard poker chip. They are approximately the same thickness, and a bit smaller in diameter. The game comes with 6 chips in each of the 6 rainbow colors plus black, for a total of 42 of these nice quality chips. (You can follow the link to see the photo enlarged.)

My first project with these chips is to make a deluxe Gardens of Mars set (as soon as I get a board printed or made up), but any other Malarky sets that I find at good thrift store prices are coming home with me too!

[edit for clarity, I meant I'm claiming every set, not alternate sets ]

I've already mentioned the tray for scavenging, also available in a 6 bay version.
Board Game: Miscellaneous Game Accessory


But you could also use the cards themselves for creating homemade versions (or replacing lost components) of Enchanted Forest, Chicken Cha Cha Cha, Sherlock & Buggo; three of the better Memory type games for small children.

The cards are nice and sturdy plus also of a relatively small size, they should be fine for Buggo and Chicken Cha Cha Cha.
Enchanted Forest would be a little tight, but still workable.

Multiple sets would work better, so be prepared to pick up two of the same type.

These will obviously often have pawns for Pachisi, Chinese Checkers or even Halma, Chess and Checkers pieces, one or more dice, and various other types of winks, pegs or tokens.

Thought I'd add some games I've found myself thrifting one or more times over the last few years. I don't know whether they're ever found much over there, but then a bunch of games others have posted cannot be found here (DICEcapades cry).

To begin with, this Knizia abstract. 10+12 gammonish wooden discs, good for abstracts or random markers (especially with multiple sets), and 20+ wooden rods that can be used for Quoridor among other things.

I made an interesting discovery on a little thrift run this afternoon. While in one of my not-so-local Goodwill stores, I noticed this Monopoly variant that I'd never seen before, and opened the box purely out of curiosity. What I found had me quickly closing the box and tucking it under my arm to continue shopping.

In all fairness, this one does not have a really terrible rating (5.5-ish), so if you're a fan of Monopoly in general, you may want to test drive the game before filleting it for parts. However, if you're not usually interested in Monopoly, or if you find an incomplete copy, I'd recommend grabbing this any day of the week purely for the bits!

Here's why, in ascending order of coolness:

For your thrifty buck, you get an unusual set of movers:

Board Game: Monopoly Millionaire

Someone may know a game those would be perfect for, but I don't offhand.


You also get some really nice glassy-looking houses and hotels:

Board Game: Monopoly Millionaire

Those are going right into my vintage deluxe Monopoly set, though spiffy little buildings can be useful in a lot of games.


But the piece of resistance, as the French say, is the money:

Board Game: Monopoly Millionaire

The money in the game is all cardboard tiles. They're quite robust and stiff too, I tested one that was already damaged. There are 6 denominations, with 16 tiles in each, and a tray to keep them organized:

Board Game: Monopoly Millionaire


The dice in the set I found are keepers, but I saw a comment from someone that the dice in their game had diamond-shaped pips, or something like that. Still, I thought it was a dollar well spent.


cool

First time posting after I found this geeklist. I got this incomplete edition for $2.00 at a Goodwill. O think The spaces are American cities and you travel along America. It's a special Wal-Mart edition. Too bad there isn't a BGG image. The box was taped shut but the Sharpie price was kind enough to list it as "as-is. There are missing pieces." There was a see through panel that showed some neat "gold" tokens. Shaking the box, I heard some rattling tokens, and I bought it out of curiosity.

I got:
-1 gameboard
-8 awesome metal tokens: baseball mitt, plane, cable car, double decker bus, statue of liberty, taxi, ten gallon hat and a cute cab rickshaw on three wheels
-22 various sizes and colors "location stamps"
-20 gray First Class stamps
-4 plastic token holders
-2 engraved dice with an image on one of them
-Chance cards
-Monopoly money in various denominations.


I wish I had the passports. While I'm not sure which game I'd use the player tokens, I'm glad that I have them. I plan to use the paper money for a pnp I've downloaded. Not bad for my first find.
