Welcome to the 2013 edition of the Thrift Find of the Week!

This is where the week's greatest thrift find is named, to be honoured by all thrifting Geeks. Each game mentioned is also linked back to the original post on the thrifting list. The Geek who found the winning game also receives one shiny new GeekGold in commemoration of this event. Brought to you by your friendly, neighbourhood Secret Cabal:

                              

The criteria for a winning find include (but are not limited to): the coolness of the find; how rarely it's thrifted; game rank; game cost; production value; general rarity; and whatever other whacked-out reasons the Secret Cabal decides to use. Feel free to add your comments, commendations, condemnations, et cetera -- although we hasten to add that our decisions are infallible.

Be sure to subscribe to this list so you can be notified of the latest winner.

Well, we are glad to be back to work! We cannot lie: your friendly, neighbourhood Secret Cabal had great difficulty leaving our private Caribbean island. In the end, however, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge got quite annoying and we had to leave.

It would seem that 2013 will be no less impressive than 2012 in the thrifting department. Just look at the new year's bounty:

Haul of the Week: Well, there's no doubt about HofW's winner. Elyklord has won this before, but he's done it again. Look what he's picked up this week for $9 apiece: Descent: Journeys in the Dark; Descent: The Well of Darkness; Descent: The Altar of Despair; Descent: The Tomb of Ice; Descent: The Road to Legend; World of Warcraft: The Boardgame; World of Warcraft: The Boardgame - Shadow of War; StarCraft: The Board Game; Warhammer: Invasion; Warhammer: Invasion - Assault on Ulthuan; Warhammer: Invasion - The Deathmaster's Dance; Warhammer: Invasion - The Skavenblight Threat; Warhammer: Invasion - The Burning of Derricksburg; Warhammer: Invasion - Path of the Zealot; Warhammer: Invasion - Arcane Fire; Warhammer: Invasion - Tooth and Claw; Warhammer: Invasion - The Warpstone Chronicles; and Cadwallon: City of Thieves. What a haul! You can see it starting here. He'll be counting that one for a while.

War Games: Commands & Colors: Ancients Expansion Pack #1: Greece & Eastern Kingdoms for $4; Crusader Rex for $5; Squad Leader for $4; and Rise and Decline of the Third Reich for $4.

Eurogames: Seasons for $4; Notre Dame for £4; two copies of Age of Discovery for $4 each; Bison: Thunder on the Prairie for $4; Modern Art for $2; Sutter's Mill for $3; Sushizock im Gockelwok for £2; Carcassonne: Hunters and Gatherers for $3; and Dominion for $5.

Thematics: Runebound (second edition) and Sands of Al-Kalim for $4; Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective for $3; a '99 Acquire for $8; History of the World for $3; Formula D for $3; and Cosmic Encounter for $2.

Abstracts: a Ganine Gothic tournament Chess set for $5.

Train Games: Rail Baron for $1.25.

Our first runner-up of 2013 is certainly a lovely find. Congratulations to Stu Skywalker for his impressive thrift of Runewars for $3.

But nothing can top the first winner of 2013. What a find! Top marks and one GeekGold and Thrift Find of the Week go to

Your friendly, neighbourhood Secret Cabal is delighted to say that the sangria and gin-and-tonic is on the house for all thrifting Geeks today. By all means, saddle up to the bar and put your order on our tab. This wooziness needs to be shared. Let us proceed...

Haul of the Week: Well, this title goes to our FOTW regular, bobpony (and his magical flea markets). His haul included such lovelies as Star Trek: Expeditions; Fury of Dracula; Talisman (Revised 4th Edition); Talisman: The Frostmarch Expansion; Talisman: The Reaper Expansion; and Incursion -- four dollars apiece. You can see the haul starting here. In an unrelated haul, he also picked up a bunch of other games including San Juan for $5 and Eminent Domain for $5. Bob, we love you but we are also sickened with jealously. Either that or the sangria. Ahem.

Thematics: 1960: The Making of the President for $1.50; World of Warcraft: The Boardgame for $7.25; Civilization for $5; A Game of Thrones (first edition) for $3; Vegas Showdown for $2; two copies of the '99 Acquire (one here for $4 and one here for $1.50); Battlestar Galactica for $2; and DungeonQuest (third edition) for $2.

Train Games: Empire Builder for $3.

Eurogames: Blue Moon for $4; Carcassonne: Hunters and Gatherers for $6; Mammoth Hunters for $2; two copies of Small World (one here for $5 and one here for $8); Puerto Rico for $8; Modern Art for $1.30; Palazzo for $2; Carolus Magnus for €5; and Masters of Venice for $3.

War Games: Panzer Grenadier: Sinister Forces for $2; Armor for $3; and 88 for $3.

We are more than very pleased to announce that your present interlocutor has placed second this week and is the runner-up! Yes, félicitations go to Juxtatype for his extraordinarily unusual find of a first edition of Empire Builder (with the lead trains) for $3. Nifty!

But it was not quite enough to overhaul the eventual winner of the Thrift Find of the Week. In fact, it is our first winner from the Austro-Hungarian Empire. The Secret Cabal is pleased to award this to a Geek from our secret base of operations. He picked up quite a haul of games, but none better than this. Congratulations to

At long last, we are back. We have risen like the phoenix from the embers. Your friendly, neighbourhood Secret Cabal is not in the habit of apologizing to anyone anywhere at anytime, but we will certainly make an exception on this humbling occasion:

To you all -- thrifters, followers of this list, hangers-on, fans, friends and foes -- we unreservedly apologize for the lack of attention this list has received and for the delay in bringing this list back from the dead. Our heads are truly hung in shame.

I have no doudt that you all would prefer to just get on with the good stuff and that's what we're going to do. In order to facilitate this and to facilitate bringing the list up to date, our commentary will be sparse over the coming weeks. Although we have no right to it, we crave your indulgence nonetheless.

We will be back to our arrogant and drunk selves before too long.

Thematics: Magic Realm for $4; Divine Right for $3; Red Dragon Inn for $3; RoboRally and the Crash & Burn expansion (along with some other goodies) for $3; Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective for $4; two copies of Civilization (one here for $2 and one here for 50¢); Escape from Colditz for 50p; another RoboRally for $2; and Legend of Robin Hood for 50¢.

Eurogames: Oasis for $3; Medici for $3; two copies of Tigris & Euphrates (one here for $2 and one here for $4); Hanging Gardens for $1; two copies of Manhattan (one here for $2 and one here for €3); Ave Caesar for €4.50; Mystery of the Abbey for $3; Clippers for €3.50; Lord of the Rings: The Card Game for $4; Through the Desert (in shrink) for $5; Torres for $4; Race for the Galaxy for $2.50; Tikal for $3; Dominion for $3; Game of Thrones: The Card Game for $5; TtR: Europe for $2; Starfarers of Catan for $8; Factory Fun for $4.50; Mexica for €4; Niagara for $2.25; and Homesteaders for $2.

Wargames: Memoir '44 for $2; General de Brigade for $3; War of the Ring (first edition) for $8; War & Peace for $3; and [listitem=2480131]Kremlin[/listitem] for $4.

Family Games: [listitem=2474208]Gulo Gulo[/listitem] for $4.

Train Games: Empire Builder for $2.

Haul of the Week certainly goes to muddysneakers who snagged 34 games at an average cost of $3 a pop. Some highlights included: DungeonQuest (third edition); Runebound (second edition); Castle Ravenloft Board Game; Warhammer: Invasion; Prophecy; and Runewars. This is a very fine haul which you can see starting here.

Picking a winner of the Thrift Find of the Week was very tough (as it often is), but the rarity of seeing the following won us over. We congratulate

The demons are working hard to prevent your friendly, neighbourhood Secret Cabal from completing their work. We will not be thwarted! This week, the three top spots were all war games and, indeed, there were many fantastic war games.

Train Games: Rail Baron for $2; and Empire Builder for $5.

War Games: two copies of Kremlin (one here for $3 and one here for $5); August Fury for $2; Days of Decision for $2; World in Flames for $2; and Memoir '44: Hedgerow Hell for 499ISK.

Eurogames: Power Grid for $6; Key Largo for $4; Pillars of the Earth for $7; Tower of Babel for $4; In the Shadow of the Emperor for $2; Manhattan for $1.50; Mexica for $2; Puerto Rico for $5; TtR: Europe for $4; Dominion for $3; Dixit for $4; Mystery of the Abbey for $2; Shadows over Camelot for $2; and Torres (in shrink) for $3.

Thematics: Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective for $3; Ca$h 'n Gun$ for $5; StarCraft: The Board Game for $6; Game of Thrones (first edition) for $5; and Tumblin-Dice for $5.

A fine find makes its way into the bronze medal position: how about War Galley for $1? Congrats to Hiddnfox for grabbing it. All together now: JEALOUS!!!

Second place (and the silver medal) is a remarkable find. Namely, Tokyo Express found by artfuldodge2 for $3.

We could not be more pleased than to present the Thrift Find of the Week to one of the finest, more generous, most erudite, and most knowledgeable of thrifting Geeks. We happily congratulate

What a week! Lots of Pimm's No. 1 Cup for the Secret Cabal to decide on a winner.

War Games: Gulf Strike for $1; Rise and Decline of the Third Reich for $4; Napoleon: The Waterloo Campaign, 1815 for $1; and Battle Cry for $1.

Eurogames: two copies of Puerto Rico (one here for $3 and one here (in shrink) for $4.50); Ra for $5; Citadels for $1; Pastiche for $4; Arkadia for £2; China for $3; Dixit for $2; Mystery of the Abbey for $3; two copies of Lost Cities (one here for $2 and one here for $1); and Zooloretto (in shrink) for $1.

Train Games: Rail Baron for $1.50; and two copies of Empire Builder (one here for $3 and one here for $5).

Thematics: Betrayal at House on the Hill for $7; Vegas Showdown for $3; and RoboRally: Armed and Dangerous for $6.

Though not strictly thrifty, we would be remiss if we didn't mention another Elyklord haul of war games. Twelve games this time, which you can see starting here. He is, without doubt, the Haul Monitor.

Third place is awarded to artfuldodge2 for his exceptional find of Waldschattenspiel for $3. Sooooo jealous.

Oh so close to winning was Dark Tower, found for $2 by p4warrior. He takes home the runner-up position. Terrific find!

This week's winner of the Thrift Find of the Week is

As one of our more sympathetic correspondents put it, cocktails of Vicodin and port were required by the Secret Cabal to even begin this week's deliberations. In the world of thrifting board games there is bobpony and, far off in the distance, there is everyone else.

Eurogames: Clans for $3; two copies of Puerto Rico (one here for $4 and one here for $1.15); Barbarossa for $2; Small World Underground for $4; two copies of Mystery of the Abbey (one here for $4 and one here for $4); Small World for $4; Dominion for $4; Mage Wars for $4; Bohnanza for $3; No Thanks! (in shrink) for $1; 7 Wonders for $4; Mexica for $4; Ra for $2; À la Carte for $3.50; Java for $7.50; and Key Harvest for $4.

Thematics: Lifeboats for $3; two copies of RoboRally (one here for $3 and one here for $4); Rune Age for $3; DungeonQuest for $2; Mare Nostrum for $5.50; and Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective for £3.

War Games: We The People (unpunched) for $2; and Stonewall's Last Battle for $2. Great little war game haul for BG_FINDER: Kingmaker, Afrika Korps, The Battle of the Bulge, Pickett's Charge, The Thin Red Line, The Great Redoubt, and Wooden Ships & Iron Men for $15 total. See it all starting here.

Tametitan is being put into second place today, despite finding Talisman, The Talisman Dungeon, Talisman: The Adventure, DungeonQuest, Dungeonquest: Catacombs, and Heroes for Dungeonquest for a grand total of £3. Why didn't this win? Well, because when bobpony and his magical flea market are involved, everyone else can just roll over and play dead.

The Thrift Find of the Week goes to
