The following are some recent aquisitions from thrift stores and garage sales. It really makes my day to find something unusual at a garage sale or a thrift store, there are so many rabid ebay sellers out there you are lucky to find anything anymore (myself being one of them, but the difference is that I keep all my games, not that it makes any difference to the person that misses out), I'm leaving out things like Axis & Allies, Heroquest, and things like that (I left out a lot from this list), trying to focus on just the more unusual things, especially the games you didn't even know existed. I put out $48 hard earned dollars for the following games.....

I picked this up at a garage sale for $1, this really excited me as it seemed pretty rare and in one of my favorite categories (fantasy wargames). The title of this game still makes me squint.

I was at a bookstore and I saw someone trying to sell this, the bookstore told the person that they were not interested and that they would "recycle it" for him. I ran over there and yelled "GIVE IT!". Anyway he sold it to me for $2.

Having been out of gaming for over 2 decades and only 1 year back in I was unaware that this had any value or was a good game. I left this copy priced at 99 cents. When I got home I remembered the title and looked it up, cursing my ignorance I ran back down to the thrift store (in my car) and bought it, WHEW! A few weeks later I found another copy in another thrift store for $1.99

49 cents thrift store find. No rules but otherwise complete (that last sentence sounds like an ebay description, oh but I forgot to say "as-is"). Avalon hill version.

garage sale for $3, the question is do you keep spending $3 on games you will never play (or even sell)?

$15, ouch!! missing most of the cards a few of the minis. I actually bought this from a collectibles shop, it was sitting in their "to sell on ebay" pile for months, I would always bug them about it, anyway, the guy that sold the ebay stuff for the shop walked out so I took advantage.

$8 garage sale. They had $10 on it and of course I would have paid $20 since it was basically new except for a few ships assembled, but getting stuff cheap is pretty important!

$6 garage sale, early columbia block game. I was sort of suprised to find it but more suprised that they wanted $6! I mean most people just give their stuff away (unfortunately it is mostly all garbage or worse)

50 cents garage sale, someone got there before me because I asked if he had any others and he said "yes, there is a big stack of them over...oh, I guess someone bought them already", this game is unpunched.
