I found this at 'The Prancing Pony' thriftstore in Gibsons for $1.00. It's in immaculate condition & I've been curious about this game for some while. The biggest hurdle I have is to convince Pierre to play it, so far the only abstract I've found he likes is Khet but it has lasers soo..

After what seemed like an eternal drought, I finally found a gem. I almost picked this game up retail but thankfully I waited. $3.99 from Savers. Almost new and pretty much unplayed. Four score sheets were removed and had names on them, looking like they were ready for play but none of the sheets were filled in. Looks like they were either put off by it or something but either way I'm quite happy to add it to my collection.

I've seen this on the list but never really looked into this game. I'm glad I found one. A simple quick Star Wars miniature game -- yes please. I know they sell well, but I'll be holding onto this!

Missing:
- 4 minis = Padme, Boba Fett, Royal Guard, Super Battledroid
- Die
- 4 wound markers
- 5 reference cards (though I have just 1 which probably would suffice)

Anybody out there have a parts copy? If not, I'll probably try my luck in the spare parts GL.

Nothing groundbreaking, but I always enjoy having different card games around for the non-hardcore gaming folks.

Edition pictured, complete, appears minimally used (if at all).

I saw an add on kijiji and the user was looking to sell some games. This one cost me $10 and it is complete except for 15 of the black bases. I'm a huge blood bowl fan and I was curious about what the first edition looked like.

I also picked this up for $10. I have a copy that I'm planning on selling but I was missing a couple of the chips. Now I have a complete copy and I'll probably just sell the parts from this one as the box is beat up.

I only arranged to buy Blood Bowl and Rail Baron but the guy showed up with this one and threw it in for free. I have not yet audited the contents.

The games that I passed on that he was selling for $20 each were:
Luftwaffe
France 1940
Cross of Iron
Air Assault on Crete
Third Reich

My son's school had what was essentially a rummage sale as a fundraiser for the Yearbook Club. I picked up a few games which looked interesting and may get some play.
First was Buzzword, which looks like Password meets the $100,000 Pyramid. The extended family loves this type of game.
$1 at school rummage sale.

Just minor finds for me this week... still really dry around here.

First up, an underrated abstract. I was the first person to spot this and record it on the 'geek - I'm still down as the only owner - and lo and behold, I snag another one in the wild.

All complete, looks like it was played once, charity shop... £2.00.

Next up, rather fun balancing game. I usually pass on these, but this one was in minty fresh wrap. A bit more than I usually like to pay, but times are hard and finds are thin...

Scrabble meets math. Can also be played solo, which is good since my kids are still too young for this. This was missing one of the #7 tiles, but I was able to use my basic art skills to create a replacement.

Race for the Galaxy: The Gathering Storm $2.99

New in shrink.

Wandered around the store a bit hoping for the base game, more expansions or some other euros - but to no avail.

Maybe someone thought this was a base game by itself? Didn't work out so it was donated? I have a copy but couldn't leave this behind - since RFTG is one of my all time favorite games.

Who knows? For less than three bucks it's mine!

I decided to take a thrift run today. Some of the bills are getting paid off and I feel like I can "splurge" a little. I went to GW and found Rumis for $1.50. I'm hoping this is one my wife might like to play. It's in great shape, but missing the instructions.
Does anybody know of a website, where board game people gather, that I can contact in hopes of one of these "board gamers" can point me to a place that I can print the directions? Anyone??? whistle

My next stop was the Village Store where I picked up a couple games. I saw the Haba label and did an insta-grab (I've learned that from you Joe Thrifter!!!). All complete for $1. My daughter may be too old for this so I'll hang onto it in the hopes of grand kids some day.

I also picked up this copy of Monopoly. It rattled, so I had high hopes the pieces were in there. It's complete except for... yep, the instructions. Must be my day to pick games without instructions?? Once again, anybody out there know of a website where I could post a question to these "board game" type people and maybe get some info on getting the instructions??? Oh, $1.

So the story actually begins last Tuesday, as I was at one of the local Value Villages. As it has been over the last few weeks ... absolutely nothing in the games section of any note. So I head of to browse the CDs and as I am passing through them I just happen to look down for a split second. "Oh that's a copy of Kingmaker" my brain registers, and I continue looking at the CDs for another few moments.

Now comes the hard part. Realizing that there is this first edition copy of Kingmaker just sitting there, I take it and give it a look over. Inventoried, complete, kept in little plastic baggies ... but the box is in horrible condition - Faded, with 2 blown corners. The clincher was the price ... they wanted 10$ for it. Just far too much for me, in that condition. I take the happy game back to where it should be on the shelves and content that I did a "catch and release" hunt that day, and very happy that I found a copy in the wild. Like seeing a white stag in the woods, I took this to be a good omen! Surely the Thrift Lords have looked favorably on me and something good is bound to happen.

And of course, the Thrift Lords mocked me for my insolence the rest of the week, and all my runs turned up empty.

Late Sunday I stumbled on a recent post on Kijiji selling board games 2$ or 3/5$ ... including Carcassonne and others. Too good to be true I think

A email text reserves the game for me, and a gem that there were "other games they didn't list"


1.66$, rescued from Kijiji
