So my wife makes an annual pilgrimage to Phoenix to go shopping at a HUGE yardsale-like event, the Rummage Sale. It is put on my the Phoenix area Junior League and it is at the state fairgrounds. It is that big. Our kitchen table came from there one year for $15. So it is a place ripe for bargains. And this year there were some boardgames. Not monopoly or other nonsense, REAL boardgames. So this list outlines the scores my wife found without even knowing what was a "good" game or not.

Totals (from BGG's lists, accurate as of 2/22/15)
If bought new at list: $322.80
If bought cheapest at Amazon: $259.00
If bought new at Amazon: $337.84

Wife's total spend on this list: $13

The Seth Jaffee classic. Made better because he's a Tucson boy like myself. While I already have a copy, this was too good to pass up!

I have Caylus already, and have played Magna Carta once and liked it, so I thought this would be on my short list - I almost bought from a friend once. So I was thrilled when my wife said this was available.

Never heard of this one in spite of it not being that old, and that there is ANOTHER game of the same name that came out in 2013! Figured that if nothing else, it would have dice to scavenge for other games...

Even though this is only the 2 player little brother to Le Havre, I figured it would be worth it to try for the right price.
