So Saturday was Goodwill of Arizona's Half off day, and I decided that my fiance and I would take a little driving trip all around the Valley of the Sun and see what we could find.

Here is a list of what I brought home today. Some are not so great, some are a little better than others. Just thought I'd share

So I got this game. For 2.99 We played it and it's really cool. I'm missing a few tickets and the clear pawn for the game, but otherwise in great condition and complete.

This game looked so cool on the outside I had to pick it up.

2.99

It's missing too much stuff to play, but It has the board, magnets, and the "metal detector"

If anyone needs pieces or wants this game let me know. I'll accept any reasonable offer.

REally!

I was shocked to find this on the shelf.

Too bad It was just the box, board, and one little wooden piece.

It was originally 3.99 when I told the guys pieces were missing He was going to throw it out, so I told him I'd recycle it if he was going to trash it

If anyone needs a new board or box let me know. It's yours

TImes two.

I found two copies of the version with the Roman Numeral counters. One in perfect, basically never played condition and the other all beat to hell

I actually did not have this before so I'm keeping the good one.

the crappy one will be made into centerpieces for my wedding in October

Found this for 4.95 at an antique mall

Perfect condition.

I think my dad had a copy when I was a kid, but I've never played it

Got this little guy for .99

We changed the rules a little and it was a lot of fun.

We now play hot potato style: we place the timer and keep playing around until it buzzes. Whoever's turn it is draws a card and gets skipped; Reset Timer.

It there's a lightning card in play when it goes off everyone draws a card.

It's a lot better that way, we think.

Not really sure if the theme is good for the wedding. Maybe the people we don't like that much sit here......right under the chandelier
