I was on vacation last week visiting my brother who is a house parent at Sunshine Acres Childrens Home in Mesa, AZ. Being a privately funded organization, they run a thrift store. My last day visiting, I decided to check into the thrift store and spotted this immediately.
$3.00 and 100% complete at SACH Thrift store in Mesa.
Also found was an unused Tinbuk2 computer messenger bag for $5.00. Unfortunately for me, my wife has already designated this to be a gift for my son who graduates this year and will be heading to my Alma Mater, George Fox University in the fall.
$30.00 from the Blue Highway game auction. Complete, bagged, and in top shape. I know that this seems like a lot, but just try to find a copy Funagain, apparently, has it for $70 plus shipping... (otherwise, not available in the US).
$3.49 from VV. Box heavily water damaged, but contents complete, partially unpunched, and in fine shape. My first time finding this, which is weird because I've seen well over a dozen copies of the 2210 and LotR versions each...
The plastic pieces were held, perfectly separated, by using a upside-down square cardboard rules insert from a Sorry game that fit perfectly into the box effectively sealing the components. I've never seen this before, but will use something like this from now on...
