The month started with more purchases from an estate sale on Consimworld. This was to get an older edition of the classic AH game.

But the gem of the purchase was this, one of the tough-to-get expansions for ASL.

Acquired through one of the many Chains of Generosity game give-aways found on BGG. It looked interesting, so I'll give it a try.

A rare thrift store find for me. Probably won't keep it; it's the kind of game I'd like to try but won't ever find anyone to play with.

A local game store was closing its doors. I found a binder of almost 400 cards, all the silver (uncommon) variety of cards for this game. Over 2-1/2 displays' worth of uncommon cards for just $5.00.

The same store still had one of these tucked in the back shelves. Shrinkwrapped, it was only $5.00. I normally don't go pursuing games with as poor a reputation as this one, but it was missing from my Avalon Hill collection.

I had purchased a flat box copy of this game for my Avalon Hill wall.

Won this at a poorly-attended games day that had door prizes. Everyone got to go home with a new game, and I got to pick this one. Got it mostly because of the wooden lizards.
