[NOTE: this metalist will be kept updated]



Behold the hallowed halls of Thriftdom.

Built by heroes of old, hewn from the great rock of discarded games. Enter its hallowed caverns hewn from musty cardboard, throw some more monopolies on the fire for they are worthless here. Sit awhile with the wizened denizens, near blind from peering into the nooks and crannies of the deepest depths of thrift-emporia.

Long live the Thrift!



Thus reads the motto for The Ancient and Loyal Order of Thrifters. Visit our guild halls or proceed directly to our hunting grounds or our other locations of divertisement.


This geeklist is a metalist for all activities in the guild. It exists as a first stop for fresh newcomers and as a handy index for musty old regulars. Use it wisely.

This is the traditional weekly thrift and bargain finds list.

These lists may start empty but as always: add your items.

Put in what you consider a bargain, tell us how much you paid and the place you got it from. Bargains can be thrift store finds or any second-hand purchases or discounted items bought new.

Choose your poison here:
(Weekly) Boardgames only list...
(Monthly) RPG's only list...
(Monthly) Videogames only list...

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. As a guideline, take this into consideration: "Do the thrifters want to know about this?"

This is the traditional monthly list of what you found on those other shelves.

As usual, this list starts empty, but it grows as folks add to it.

Wait a minute. That's not a game! Oh well. Let us oooh and aaah over what you've found.
If you can, try to post a snapshot of your find with your entry.

This is the traditional list of happy/nasty surprises.

Add the things you've found inside a thrift or bargain purchase.

It's bound to happen. Someone uses a game box to store a few extra items. Later, they decide to donate the game to a thrift store, or sell it at a garage sale, without looking inside the box first. You then purchase the game, and are surprised or utterly baffled at what else is included beside the game.
