2009 is well done, the king has been crowned, the Thrifty Awards handed out. So what is left?

How about a list of things that make you say "Hmmmm...." Or possibly "What The Heck?"

Here, then, is that list.

If you have requests for particular stats, let me know.

In 2008 we had 670 unique posters to the Weekly lists. In 2009, this grew to 877.

Not surprisingly, membership is made primarily from the USA. Once again the Dominion of Canada secures second spot with the United Kingdom third. Most countries have increased their membership in the thriftdom, including Parts Unknown, which has grown by 8 members. In all, thrifters claim to be from 28 different countries:

count | country

581 | United States
89 | Canada

22 | unknown
15 | Netherlands

131 different states, provinces or territories were represented in 2009, compared to 105 in 2008. The most popular, once again, is Parts Unknown. Clearly many of us are secretive and don't want to poach our territories. Of the known states, California once again leads the way. The top of the order is unchanged for the first 5, but then Ontario and Minnesota leap frog quite a few. The first non-US representative is Ontario, with the first territory not in the North America being Kent, I believe.

Note that this list is a direct query of what users enter into their profile -- I'm doing no massaging of the data. Thus you will may see territories duplicated (such as BC and British Columbia or Quebec and Québec).

In a bit of a surprise, it appears that thrifters are leaving Portland Oregon. Last year, we had 13 reported thrifters from that fine city, this year we have but 9. Last year, Portland surpassed all "cities" save one -- Unknown City from Unknown State in Unknown Country. This year, Parts Unknown California surpasses Portland.

Portland remains the most represented city where all the geographical information is known, but clearly its lead is shrinking.

Here is the list of municipalities where three or more thrifters are located. Why 3? Because 3 is the number where competition REALLY starts!

Activity on the lists changes day by day -- fewer finds are reported as the week goes on, and fewer thumbs per post are handed out.

Here is the 'weighting table' for 2009, used to even out the thrifty ratings by weighting thumbs by day of the week:


dow | finds | thumbs | thumbperpost | multiplier
-----+-------+--------+---------------------+------------
1 | 3593 | 81062 | 22.5610910102978013 | 1.00
2 | 3441 | 71491 | 20.7762278407439698 | 1.09
3 | 2974 | 57475 | 19.3258238063214526 | 1.17
4 | 2854 | 49847 | 17.4656622284512964 | 1.29
5 | 2399 | 39210 | 16.3443101292205085 | 1.38
6 | 2565 | 37312 | 14.5465886939571150 | 1.55
0 | 2139 | 27912 | 13.0490883590462833 | 1.73


DOW is 0-indexed, with Sunday being 0 and Saturday being 6. The trend is obvious. I've placed Sunday at the end to make it super clear.

We frequent a number of establishments. Many are franchises or chain stores. Here are the number of times the popular chains have been mentioned:

Goodwill (inlcudes 'GW'): 3869
Value Village (includes 'VV','Savers','Unique Thrift'): 2560
Salvation Army (includes 'SA','Salvos','Sally Ann'): 1025
Deseret Industries (includes 'DI'): 815
'Yard Sale','Garage Sale' or 'Community Sale': 669
'Church': 275
'Boot Sale': 181
Craig's List (includes 'CL'): 175
AMVETS: 129
Saint Vincent de Paul (includes SVdP, SVP): 127
Tuesday Morning: 26

This is an extremely inaccurate list, being as it's based on substring searches of the list item text. It should give a good indication of which are the more popular hunting grounds, though.

Most finds in a week: 552 (http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/43052 )
Fewest finds in a full week: 266 (http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/49778)

500+ finds were reported 3 times.
400-499 finds were reported 19 times.
300-399 finds were reported 26 times.
200-299 finds were reported 3 times.

One list had less than 50 finds, but it was the abbreviated list to close off the year.

For the first time since the weekly thrift lists started, we did not find a Die Macher during the year. By game ID, this is the lowest numbered game we have not found in 2009. As it's ID is 1, it would be quite hard, indeed, to find one lower!

We have still yet to locate last year's 'unfound game with the lowest game ID', Tal der Könige, while thrifting.

Here are the games with IDs lower than 50 that we found this year:

The top ranked game mentioned on the lists (at the time of the scrape) is Agricola. Don't worry Rank Watchers, Puerto Rico was found, too. The highest ranked not found this year is Twilight Struggle. Incidentally, that was not found last year either. Not found at all, since the start of the lists, actually. To get this would be quite the coup.

Of the top 100 ranked games, we found 76 of them in 2009:

Last year, the highest ranked wargame found (by wargame rank) was Paths of Glory. At the time it had a wargame rank of 20. There has been a MAJOR shuffling around of wargame ranks since then, and it is now number 2 on that list. But it hasn't been found in 2009.

This year, the highest ranked wargame (by wargame rank) is Commands & Colors: Ancients. At number 3, well, that's not too bad.

Of the top 100 ranked wargames, we have found 38. Clearly wargamers are more reluctant to give away their games.

Here are the wargames with wargame ranks less than 100 that were found in 2009:

The most thumbs gathered by a single list is 10157. Oddly enough, this wasn't the list with the most finds. Not even in the top 5.

Here are the lists that attracted the most raw thumbs:

The number of distinct posters per week remained fairly constant, with a couple of noticeable bumps. Keep in mind that the first list was abbreviated to keep things lined up with the calendar.

In 2009, 2824 unique items were reported exactly once, 862 were found twice and 404, in utter defiance to the HTTP spec, were indeed found 3 times.

The number of "Lasers" found (with and without shark mounts):

title | count
----------------------+-------
Laser Battle | 33
Laser Attack | 1
Khet: The Laser Game | 30


This gives us slightly less than 192 PEWs (some finds received fewer for non-functional parts...)

Most of these aren't surprising. Scrabble, Risk, Guestures and more are all staples of thrifting, so it's common to see many of these on a given week.

But what happened in November that saw 7 Axis & Allies listed? And was there a clearout in February for Modern Art?

Not on the list (I've limited it to the top 25 and ties), but 6 Acquires were found in March This seems excessive, too. Or maybe it only seems that way since I've not yet found one!

In 2009, 350 of the posters to the weekly lists also posted at least once in 2008.
Of those 350, 195 also posted in 2007.
Of those 195, 96 posted at least one find in 2006.
And of those 96, 53 posted in 2005, the year the weekly thrift lists started.

It's interesting that no one who has been active on the lists for exactly the last four years is a member of the council.
