I buy most of my clothes either from consignment shops or thrift stores. Whenever I'm dropping stuff off at the thrift store, I always head in and go straight for the games section to see if there's anything worthy. My general experience is generally summed up as: excited to find the 5-6 Settlers of Catan expansion only to open it up to find a jigsaw puzzle inside.

Well today, that changed! I walked and head straight for the toys section. I start scanning shelf by shelf only to spot the first game that I get to list on my "Thrifty Finds" Geeklist. I never expected to be able to create one of these for myself!

My eye spotted this one on a top shelf at the Midnapore Value Village in Calgary.

I grabbed it off the shelf and took it right to the front counter to check for completion. To be honest, I probably would have purchased it even if pieces were missing. It turned out to be 100% completed and looked to have never been played.

I was happy to break the 5$ bill in my pocket to bring this one home. It carried a price tag of 2.99$ with tax, a whopping 3.14$

Thank you person who I assumed purchased this and found it "too complicated" you've made this gamer a happy thrifter. (I make that assumption because I hope that if it was a gamer that previously had this in their possession, that they would have sold it or put it up for trade)

Spotted the unmistakable Yellow Haba box and grabbed it before I knew what game it was.

I always figure that Haba makes games of great quality and decent fun so I didn't hesitate to pick this one up for 4.99 at the Midnapore ValueVillage.
