This is the traditional weekly thrift and bargain finds list.
These lists may start empty, but as always, add your items.
Put in what you consider a bargain, tell us how much you paid and the place you got it from. Bargains can be thrift store finds or any second-hand purchases or discounted boardgames bought new. Don't forget to add your encounters with the Thrift Store Irritant Squad and any other embellishments in order to make it even more interesting.
The Thrift Store/Bargain Finds List Wayback Machine: The Grand Vizier is maintaining a list of all the weekly lists through time. He is also adding stats and interesting tidbits for us thrifty geeks. Your Thrift Store Bargain Finds Through Time (with links to all previous lists)

3rd week in a row where I found some form of MNB, but it’s my 1st one that was PUNCHED (which I’m happy b/c I love this game). Picked this up just to give to my friend’s GF for her classroom. Got the Junior edition last week for her as well. People have Diplomacy and Milles Bornes, but I have Make N’ Break – I will always pick up MNB.
I typically skip over 90% of Gamewrights b/c I’m tired of the one and done games w/ no resale value. This one looks pretty interesting, even though it only has an average rating. I’ll give it a whirl. Complete and in great condition
An early version that still has the "aMAZEing" pun in the title. Missing the instructions and one of the treasure cards. A little musty. (anybody know the best way to clean a game without damaging it?) $1.06 at Unique.
