This is the traditional monthly Thrift & Bargain Dumpster™.

A fitting place for discussing rejects and leftovers spotted while thrifting and bargain hunting. If you please: cast those items in the T&B-Dumpster!

Add items you left wherever you were sniffing around. Don't fill the dumpster with truckloads of Monopolies, Trivial Somethings and other regular leftovers. But rather add peculiar items, items that looked as if the cat dragged them in or items that caught your eye in some other special way.
Regular stuff accompanied by a good story is obviously also worth listing. As a guideline, take this into consideration: "Do the thrifters want to know about this?"

This list is also well suited to discuss those should-I-go-back-for-it items. Feedback you will get, from either end of the scale, from 'how could you, you amateur!' to 'best decision you ever made, you are the King!'

In the description, try to mention the state the game was in, the asking price, the location and other details worth knowing about. Oh... and please close the lid behind you. Thanks.

Last month's T&B-Dumpster:
Wear protective gear before opening and be prepared to fend off any scattering rats.

Please mind the stacks of games. Don't mention the musty smell and try not to sneeze, thank you.

Rumis. Edition shown. Left behind at the new Value Village in Orléans (Innes near Jean d'Arc).

This is a fabulous game, so why is it left behind? Well, it's missing a blue piece.

Sure, I could probably sculpy a replacement, but at $6 I expect my games to be complete.

Oh, and I already have a copy. And another for my sister's kids. So there's no rush to grab a third, especially when it's not all there.

The same place I picked up Warlock of the Firetop Mountain from, and which BTW is infamous for it's high prices for boardgames, had this in the window as a sort of 'special' item and they were asking 30€ for it. HA! It wasn't even shrinkwrapped.

Saw this at St. Vincent's. Looks interesting - like a chess variant of Stratego. It's 100% complete, one corner of the box is partially split and the paper is loose on the gameboard - but unwrinkled and untorn. Only problem was, they wanted $2.99 for it.

The box was in rough shape and you could see there was some dampness damage from being stored somewhere that wasn't dry. Contents looked good and complete though.

Looked complete, but it also looked like a re-themed version of Trivial Pursuit. I'll admit I was tempted, but this is no Les Vins de France: The Game of French Wine & Food.

Game #3. Also $4.99.

All of the games looked like they were well-loved (which is the most you can ask for any game, right?) but they all had a slightly-more-than-faint musty odor about them. The condition coupled with the smell made me leave them on the shelf...

...and I was walking out the door, hesitated, remembered the "Never leave an AH game behind" mantra, and walked back in. There was someone else who had just found the same stack and was looking at them rather closely. I wandered around for a minute or two to see if the person would leave them or not, but he was doing a fairly thorough search of the components, so I thought if anything was complete, it would probably be picked up by him.

I left them behind, but don't know if they would have lasted in the store much longer anyways. Since the games would only have been resold or traded by me, I don't feel too bad.

French/English version at St. Vincent's for $2.99. They had games everywhere today - and apparently hadn't even brought them all out yet.

Also passed on Free Parking - unplayed, Psychologizer, Hail to the Chief, Songburst: 70's & 80's Edition, and something called Warri - which I see now isn't in the database - along with a ton of other stuff.

If you go there - be sure and check carefully. At least one of the games was covered in mold - Quicksand had so much mold it almost LOOKED like sand!

Edition shown. I know, I know -always take the AH games. I carried it around the store, then opened it at the counter. I couldn't really tell the completeness but just had a 'feeling' something was missing, so put it back. Maybe it's all there. It was 99 cents at the Pickerington GW.

I really considered picking this up for 2€, if only for the parts, but in the end decided not to. (For some reason I really don't like breaking up a complete game for parts, even if said game obviously sucks)

It was a Tactic version which doesn't have a picture in the DB but looks roughly similar to the Ravensburger version. Had it been one of those 'casino' versions I would have, most likely, picked it up.

I also spotted a really weird game called Osaa, Mieti, Uskalla (Know how, Think, Dare) which seemed like an Ungame type of thing, published by the Finnish Association of People with Physical Disabilities.

Apparently it's part of a project called 'Sexuality - the Power of Life'. I flipped through the rulebook, which had very graphic, pictured explanations of the male and female sexual organs; a paragraph titled 'Fantasising' had a picture of a dominatrix type of woman clad in black PVC, and so on.

For a fleeting second I actually considered picking it up for the weirdness value - it was 2.50€ with the cards still in shrinkwrap, and, unlike typical promo games, the general quality was not much worse than, say, Trivial Pursuit. I googled it and it seems it was never widely sold, but you could order one from the association, list price 40€.

Brief moment of excitement as I made my first run through Goodwill in a week. Then I saw the price - $6.99. I contemplated getting it, but after checking out the contents, it is missing one each of the Republic and Separtist cards and a ship marker. The new manager stated it is HER policy not to mark down any games.

It did have everything else - well I didn't count ALL the minis, but there were swarms of them.

We were at the DI today looking for a hanging lamp. Mary spotted this in the game aisle. I knew it was a Mormon themed Catan variant. For two bucks it would certainly have been worth it. If only it had been reasonably close to being complete. It was missing half the tiles, most of the settlements, half of the roads, all of the cities and most of the temple blocks. It was also missing the robber and the dice. The frame was torn as well. We decided to leave it behind.

We did find a red velvet draw-string bag for 25 cents. We could always use that for dice or tiles.

I was quite happy to see this at GW outlet. The box was open so I started digging through the bins for bits. After a minute I paused to see how much I've gathered and what might be missing. That's when I noticed the damage. The game had more mold & mildew than I've ever seen on anything. Even the plastic insert was nasty with counters stuck to it.

Shame really. Seems criminal to let a game like Tikal die such an ignoble death.
