THIS LIST IS CLOSED!
New List Here!


PLEASE READ THE WHOLE DESCRIPTION BEFORE POSTING ANYTHING TO THIS LIST, I'LL TRY TO KEEP IT SHORT.

Welcome to the “Thrifting For You” Community. We're a group of thrifty gamers that keep our eyes peeled for games that other thrifters can't seem to find themselves. We don't expect everyone to be able to fulfill others' requests, but we do ask that you at least look.

This is the third iteration of the “Thrifting For You” list and it will function pretty much the same as before: You ask for a game and the BGG thrifty community will help you look for it! If you're looking for a new release game or you're looking for ebait, this isn't the place for you. Please only ask for games that you are going to keep, or have evaded you and you're actually interested in playing.

Rules

1. Anyone with a BGG, RPGG, or VGG account is eligible to make a request for a game.

2. You may only ask for ONE GAME AT A TIME. To make a game request, just add it as an item to the list.

If your request is fulfilled (IN YOUR HANDS) you may ask for another game (by adding another item to the list) as long as no one else has an active request for it.

*Please edit your Item to indicate that it is available for someone else to request. Please strikethrough all original request information and add “Fulfilled by [ user=Username ][ /user ] (without the spaces and with the appropriate username).

*If you fulfill the request yourself, please put Self-fulfilled.

*If for whatever reason you wish to change your request, please edit your item to the new game, but tell us what game you're cancelling in case someone was waiting for it to be fulfilled.

3. ONLY ONE USER MAY ASK FOR A GAME AT A TIME, except in the case where the first user is asking for a specific edition or someone not willing to pay for shipping from another country.

4. Your request for a game should be supplemented by 3 things:
I. A Short description of why you are requesting that game.
II. Whether you have any concerns for a specific edition or release
III. Whether you are ok with a game that is incomplete or in poor condition

5. Please do not post trade offers or offers to sell the games on user's requests. If you're seeking compensation for your finds please keep it private, GM the user directly.

6. We would prefer that you make use of the BGG trade manager to complete your transactions. Just set up a one-sided trade so that both users will be held accountable and can gain trade credit in the process.

7. Please don't use sock-puppet accounts in order to ask for multiple games at once, anyone suspected of using sock puppet accounts will be investigated by the BGG moderators and will have their requests deleted. I would advise anyone fulfilling requests to be vigilant about such things as well.

8. SUBSCRIBE to your request!

To search for requested games by title:
Request List

Chronological Order
or search by letter

I had this on the 2012 thriftlist, but missed out. This is for my wife, and I've been looking for a few months. Any 10 days in... game will do, but I like Africa the most.

I would prefer a complete version, but the condition of the game is less important.

P.S. I live in the hand, near the thumb.

FULFILLED

10 Days in Africa and a Happy Wife. Thanks!!

Not only have I been interested in this series of games (for the game) for a while now, but I also love learning geography. I've taken a couple stabs at learning country locations in Africa for fun in the past.

I'm particularly partial to this continent due to my wife and I having met for the first time in Tanzania. We traveled in Southern Africa for a bit and my wife spent two years there (Peace Corp) before we met. Despite all that, I'd feel pretty good with myself if I could point out more than 10 countries on a map... I'm hoping this game will help.

Condition is less important than having the necessary components to play as the game is intended. And I am happy of course to cover shipping!


FULFILLED

Went ahead and deleted my request for Blink as I thrifted a copy of Loot that will work nicely for my DIY Hanabi project.

The Africa one sees a lot of play in my house, because it's one of the few games my wife will play with me on a regular basis. I'd like to continue that trend with this version. Playable condition would be great.

Deleted my other request.. because I recently played 18AL and loved it..
Soo..

Reinstating my request for an 18xx game. I don't care which one, I don't care if it's a PnP or if I need to go get a few extra tiles. I've got all the poker chips I need.

I chose 1856 because it's the area that my family is from and I'm quite familiar with the Bruce Peninsula / Georgian Bay area so it's neat to see it on the game. Almost looks like the map to 1812.



So any 18xx vet out there want to off a copy? Right here. Or in the chance someone finds a partial 18xx copy, let me at it! I'll find a way to make the missing pieces.

Nice simple, cheapish game but can't get it from my FLGS and so would like it if someone could find it for me.

Really want it as it's a nice, quick, utterly cuthroat game that my none gaming friends might actually understand

My wife really loves these types of games, and I've heard a lot about this game - all of it has been positive - so this seems like a great choice. Make my wife happy and get to play an awesome game.

I'm looking for an english edition in a playable format. If the box has some damage, that's okay - my main purpose is getting a copy I can play. Thanks in advance!

I just thrifted myself Twixt yesterday and thought I would add this version of Acquire to my collection (since I have no Acquire yet at all!).
Seems like a fairly regular find around these parts.
Looking for a complete copy in English (3M bookshelf is preferred, but any will do). Decent condition will do, I just want to be able to play it!

I'm relatively new to BGG and have done an enormous amount of (boardgame) reading on this site in the last few months. Ad Astra looks just brilliant: an elegant combination of Settles of Catan with a strong dash of Puerto Rico. In addition, two other aspects are awesome: the loadable action track and the boardgame without a board (replaced by solar systems on your table)! I've even saved, edited and printed player game aids before having the game.

Suffice it to say, I'd really like this game. The quality doesn't matter too much, I'm sure I can find a way to replace a few missing components. This game is incredibly rare but nonetheless, I'm surprised that I'm the first one to ask!

I like RPGs, and over the past couple of years, I've begun collecting old fantasy board games.

If anyone can find this set with an intact box, complete rules, scenario book, and army roster sheets, I'd appreciate it. It's okay if some of the other components are missing, as long as it's not something that can't be easily replaced.

Thanks.

Thanks in advance for any help.

This seems unlikely that anyone will fulfill this, but I know only one sure way that someone wont send this to me is that I don't ask!

Why do I want this game? Well, the short answer is because it looks fun, I mean really fun. This is the game I want more than any other game at this current moment, so you may be asking why I just don't go out and buy it. Well, I am quite frugal and usually don't make impulse buys unless I have either played the game before and liked it, have done extensive research on the game, find it at a thrift store or receive it as a gift. I have done extensive research on this game including reading the rules, watching video reviews and play throughs and reading reviews on BGG. Each time I research the game, the more I want to own it! Perhaps soon I will go to my FLGS and buy this game, but I thought, you know there may be someone, somewhere that owns this game and is looking to get rid of it. Perhaps this person spends countless waking hours stressed that Agricola is in their house yet they cant just throw it out for some reason. Perhaps the copy is haunted! I have no concern about owning a haunted Agricola, nor do I have concerns about the version. In fact, I don't even have concerns about the condition so long as its playable with 2-3 players. My gratitude would extend beyond the heavens if someone was able to fulfill my request!


Fulfilled by my parents for Christmas, thanks mom and dad!

I am very interested in trying this one out. I've been hearing about it ever since signing up on this site a few years ago and I have never had opportunity to play it. If someone happens to find a copy and is willing to let it go I would love to grab it. Thanks in advance.
