I found a listing online for some free stuff at an old abandoned house. A bunch of junk including some "strategy games". Since it was not too far from my house, I decided to drive over and check it out. Here's what I found waiting to be thrown in the dumpster. I gave the guy at the house $10 for the whole lot. Some of the stuff is a bit musty smelling and a few titles have some mildew damage, but most of them are at least partially unpunched. In any case, it was fun sorting through these piles of games stacked up behind this old abandoned house.

This one came in what looks like three covered plastic counter trays. Did it have a box originally? Might be missing some pieces, I dunno.

Looks like it's in good shape. A little musty smelling.

This one didn't fare quite as well as some of the others. Still in decent shape though I think.

This one unfortunately has some moisture damage - the board is in two pieces although the printed surfaces look perfect. The counters, which were under the board are structurally OK but a couple of them have some mildew on them. The cards look to be in perfect shape.

The box is smashed and has some surface mildew. The contraption and all the cards are in good condition.

Another one in that sort of odd plastic coated counter tray package.

Some western themed RPG by TSR called Boot Hill. Anyone heard of this? In good shape.

Looks very similar to Speed Circuit. Funny little plastic cars.

Looks like this one may have been somewhat affected by the moisture. I'll have to open it up and see.

Wow, an old copy of Diplomacy with wooden pieces and a nice topographical map. This one is in very nice shape. One slight stain on the board but otherwise very good. There are no pics of the box for this edition on the geek, but it's the 1961 Games Research version with a pink box. I might just keep this one...

Yes, there it was - a Dark Tower. Just the tower, nothing else. But this is the second Dark Tower I've stumbled across like this. The other one was at a swap meet - $6 for the whole deal. I've gotten both of them working with the same technique. I'll post up an article on the Dark Tower page with the details.

The box that I thought was the third part of Terrible Swift Sword appears to be a game called 1776, but it doesn't look like this one. It is a black and white hex map for one thing and it is in that same plastic SPI packaging. Any idea what it is?
