So, my Thursday (August 22) was going just like any other day, until I got home from work. I ran into my father-in-law, and he told me that they were cleaning out some cabinets at the college where he works. He proceeded to tell me that they were throwing out a bunch of games and stuff. At that moment, a distinct sinking feeling set in. (WHAT HAD THEY DONE?!?!?) It turns out that it was mainly more pedestrian items; chess, checkers, that sort of thing. However, he did say he brought home a few items that caught his eye, and he wanted to show them to me.

Lo and behold, what treasures he brought forth!

I would also like to add a THANK YOU to my father-in-law for saving these games from the garbage for me, even though he isn't a board gamer and didn't know if any of it was worth bothering about. It was!

On top of the stack! Holy Crap! I told my FiL "That's a $100 game right there." He couldn't believe it.

Upon cursory inventory, I found that it is actually completely playable for 3 players. The only problem is that one mother-ship is broken in half and missing it's black ball. Coincidence? I'll let you be the judge.... Right now, I'm leaning towards keeping this title, unless the right offer comes along.

Next item in the box is, sadly, incomplete. I haven't done a full inventory on it, but I know that right now I am missing the board and at least three armies. It's looking like this is going to become a parts copy to help out anybody who needs it.

Okay, the missing the factions are:

Africa
Egypt
Thrace

Complete, but it's still a Munchkin game. I have no desire to play it, so I will probably sell/give it away at my earliest convenience. 'Nuff said.

4 Chess Timers, very dusty. All of them work, and I will keep at least one of them. I'll probably try to find homes for the others. I guess I could always leave them in a basket on someone's doorstep....

Edit: To clarify, they are analog timers.

LOST Mystery of the Island Jigsaw Puzzle #3 of 4, also very dusty. Not even really worth trying to find an image of to post, since it is most decidedly NOT a board game. Goodwill or Salvation Army will become it's next destination, unless there is a Geek around here who would like it.
