This is the traditional monthly Thrift & Bargain Dumpster.

A fitting place for discussing rejects and leftovers spotted while thrifting and bargain hunting. If you please: cast those items in the T&B-Dumpster!

Add items you left wherever you were sniffing around. Don't fill the dumpster with truckloads of Monopolies, Trivial Somethings and other regular leftovers. But rather add peculiar items, items that looked as if the cat dragged them in or items that caught your eye in some other special way.

Regular stuff accompanied by a good story is obviously also worth listing. As a guideline, take this into consideration: "Do the thrifters want to know about this?"

This list is also well suited to discuss those should-I-go-back-for-it items. Feedback you will get, from either end of the scale, from 'how could you, you amateur!' to 'best decision you ever made, you are the King!'

In the description, try to mention the state the game was in, the asking price, and other details worth knowing about. Oh... and please close the lid behind you. Thanks.

Last month's T&B-Dumpster:
Wear protective gear before opening and be prepared to fend off any scattering rats.
Unwanted Rejects - Thrift/Bargain Finds Left Behind: August 2013

Our GeekGuild:
Please mind the stacks of games. Don't mention the musty smell and try not to sneeze.
The Ancient and Loyal Order of Thrifters thanks you.

So I went to the flea market this morning, and the first table I walked up to had a copy of this, and Crescendo of Doom sitting on the table, $20/each.

Picked up CoI, and the entire backside was water damaged. Heck, the 'Crescendo' box was actually bulged out in the middle from the swelling of the cardboard sheets within. The lady offering them told me they were unplayed. (and destined to stay that way).

She had a few other 70-80s era wargames that were in near mint condition, but I don't play them so my only interest would be in flipping them, and my track record for guessing the value of war games has been very, very poor. (and that's being generous...)

$4.50 is a bit much for this. I like the cover art though.

Was very disappointed to see this behind the "collectibles" counter at the Maplewood Savers. I fear a bad trend starting. Great copy of the game with 5 of 6 armies still in plastic, but at $19.99 they're asking full retail. I already have a few copies so I decided to pass.

EDIT: Bought it off the shelf weeks later for $4.99!

Found the cool plastic game board with the rotating base, and almost bought it... But could not find even a single tile...And, without letters, Scrabble just isn't any fun.

No price listed.

So, before you all get on me for passing this up, I didn't have the cash on me. So I hopefully hid it well enough in the store to get it when I have money. So with that said:

We have a local thrift shop [in Austin, TX] which has its merchandise from Boston, Mass. And apparently, they ended up with some Gamewright [from Mass] stuff still in shrinkwrap. The real prize was Forbidden Island, though. Still wrapped, tin can was in good condition. $3.99.

So yeah... I hope I hid it well enough.

Or else, I hope you all will tell me it's a crap game, so I won't feel too bad for leaving it behind. shake

The second of the 3 Gamewright games found at the above thrift shop. Though sealed, this game looked a little too young, and completely uninteresting. I think this was $2.99.

Again, like above, this was a sealed good condition Gamewright title. And, again, it looks a bit too kiddy for me.

I think they wanted $3.99 for this.

Having been the receiver and re-sender of pieces of this off of eBay for a thrifter in Canada, I know that these pieces are in demand and can be pricey. I spotted a worn box at a thrift store the other morning before jury duty, but there was no price (other than the original price tag) and the woman was on the phone. I went back yesterday, but as I was dressed nicely for jury duty, she thought she had a "live one" and quoted me $5 (the store was having a $1 sale, and was just a tiny place, not a large or boutique thrift store). I didn't buy it for $5, on principle, but even at $5 you could probably make your money back on eBay and/or save money if you were trying to complete a copy.

Middletown Thift Store, unknown name, next to DMV.
