After continuously thrifting I have seen a need for a geek list which can help those new to thrifting, help others see what else is out there, or even give a heads up to games one has passed on that others might be interested in.

Here is how this works:

1. You are out on your thrift adventure and you
a. see a game your not sure about
b. see a game you already have and don't need but think someone else might be interested
c. see the same games you always see and want to show off how crappy your thrift store is compared to others
d. see so many games and your not sure if you might be missing a home run
e. see a game possibly worth buying for spare parts

2. You take a picture of the game(s) in question.
3. You post with a game that you think might be of most interest to your or others (or not of interest if choosing choice 1C). Under your game post can contain as many pictures of the game shelf you might be wondering about. Make sure the picture you post is large enough for others to search the games. If too small, no one will be able to help.
4. Helpful, curious, and/or experienced thrifters will comment on what they would have snagged or what they would recommend that you snag.

This can also work with any cards you might think others can help you identify if needing the help. For example MTG cards. Others might be able to see a picture and spot out a $30 card that you didn't know about.


If you feel like others might poch good games in your territory/ or their territory then you either don't need to tell us what store it is, or you don't need to post. (So we might not see many posts from Bellevue Washington). But we might find more from Ohio since there isn't as many thrifters in those areas.


I hope this can help the Thrifting Guild by helping each of us on possible gold mines that were right in front of our faces without knowing it. We either help one of ourselves, or the game might go into the wrong hands.

I'm not sure if leverage would be worth getting or not, anyone have any experience with the game? good or bad?

Here is my thrift store. Olympia WA Goodwill. Am I missing gold?





I also found this and couldn't find it on the database. Not sure if it would be worth getting...

Here is a view of the Bellevue, WA Goodwill Monday 5pm. Good stuff, Maynard.

The current layout here is two shelves of games in height, stretching all along almost one whole aisle. Cleverly, Goodwill management has chosen the bottom two shelves for games, making them easily accessible by even the smallest of children, all the better to enable ransacking.

Here are the 4 photos along the shelving (I apologize for my lack of making-my-photos-into-a-single-composite-panorama ability.):









And I would be remiss if I didn't include a photo of what the crackerjack pricing staff identified as "rare and valuable", deserving of a higher price and a prominent place on top of the collectibles showcase.

I saw this game and wasn't sure if I should get it, looks a lot like quoridor. I bought that copy of rubik's race. This is the Goodwill on Halsey in Portland, OR. I never make it out to this store so I thought I'd pick you guys and see if I was missing any gems.

Olympia/Lacey VV. Yes everything is overpriced here but I have some 30% off cards saved up. But even with the 30% they are way too high, unless you see something.



PS cariboo isn't complete and way expensive.

Anyone know if this is any good/worth anything. I found 4 boxes of these at GW this morning 2 Domination Boxes for $4.99 ea and 2 Companion boxes for $2.99 each. I passed them by because of the price. I also saw a Richard Garfield CCG called Jyhad.
