I love the Thirft threads, it's the number one thing I read on this site. Finding games, giving/getting games, trading for games, it sometimes makes for exciting stories...and alot of JEALOUSY and goo comments.

But it's gotten me thinking, especially after my own experiences, which has turned out to be your most expensive thrift...not the one that you paid the most for, but the one that has caused you to BUY the most expansions, etc. in that game family? And for that matter how much has your 'cheap' investment set you back?

So, all you cheapskates out there, this is the time to let your fellow thrifters KNOW you can actually spend money on games you like!

For me, this is the granddaddy of expensive thrift. I found the original game in the DI for $3. I was curious about how such a simple game could actually be so good!

Well, i found out...in less then one year I've gotten the entire set of games, except the Dice expansion (just got my mega shipment from CSI this week). That $3 expansion has set me back over $220! And it's worth every penny!
