I guess it's now my turn to start it this week.

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 games bought new.
Don't forget to add your encounters with the Thrift Store Irritant Squad™ and any other embellishments in order to make it even more interesting.

Strange bonuses in thrift purchases:
Find something unexpected in a thrift purchase? Share your stories here.

Enter the halls of thriftdom at your own risk. Do mind the stacks of prized games. Don't mention the musty smell and try not to sneeze. Be sure to bow before our King Krazygit I, and pay your due respects to previous Kings EvilTimmy I and Blackwind I.

...And I was supposed to get this one on Ebay for 9.99 but got screwed out of it. The seller never responded and never sent it.

Later: I had to purchase this a second time. This time I got it. It better be worth it, since I've paid for it twice!

I'm not a big fan of "Risk," but I know it is fairly popular with our students (despite my hard work) and I've been looking to pick up a copy in order to use the plastic pieces as markers in other games. So, after a year of looking (!), I found 3 in one day. Bought the first copy taped up ("Yeh, if its taped up it means its complete" said the clerk) for $1.00. Should have checked right then, but I didn’t; turns out it had only 1 card. Yup, just one. Well, who cares? I only wanted the little plastic stars anyway.

Later, I find two more copies in one store! One was this “modern” copy with miniatures and the other had the Roman number pieces – each $2.50. I would have just gone ahead and bought both, but I also wanted Enchanted Forest ($1.00) and a kids computer game $1.50 and I only had a fiver in my pocket. Yes, I could have paid with a Visa, but I just couldn’t bring my self to do it, so the Roman numbers stayed on the shelf. But it all worked out in the end – but my, the newer version of Risk has nice little soldiers but really crappy cards now. There was a time when those cards were as nice as a fine pack of playing cards . . . .

A pretty varied haul this week, but a haul it was.

We had to go out earlier than usual on Saturday, so we had time to do the complete loop, six stores: two ARCs, three Goodwills, one Sal Army. That's all but one more ARC... All the stores charge $.50 to $2.00, so I won't note the prices.

This was quite a find - it's in perfect condition. Fun to play, too, with some aerobic value from the speed and tension.

A keeper, at least until the novelty wears off.

When you drive a few miles out of your way to visit your favorite thrift store you hate to leave empty-handed. I was sorely tempted to snap up a new, in-shrink Trivial Pursuit Genus II edition for $4.99, but I balked. Outwit gave meager purpose to the trip for a pitance...49 cents.

Found this copy of Twixt at my normal thrift store hunt. I thought the box size was weird & then I found this pic on the geek. I also found that the last one to sell on ebay went for $73.

My price: $1.98

I had heard about this Sid Sackson game. I normally shy away from VCR games, but heck, for 95 cents it might be worth it.

Looking at it, it appears to be a bidding card game with the VCR tape as a gimmick. Might try to migrate the VCR tape over to DVD and turn each clip into a chapter.

This was still in shrink! Makes me wonder about it's story - probably a gift that saw years of shelfage. Sounds like a budgeting and investing exercise, not too exciting. If I was interested in *that* I'd do it in real life and be able to afford good games.

Back it goes, eventually.

This looks good, can't wait to try it at our next get-together. Comes with an outstanding wind-up 30-second timer, the best I've seen.

Maybe I'll bring nothing but dexterity games to the next Meetup, that'd be a hoot. I've now got quite a few: Paletti, Loopin' Louie, Tilt'n Tumble, Chop Suey, Lightfight, this thing, Mouse Trap, Jenga, etc. Absolutely have to take some movies...

(Took some pics of the bits, should remember to upload those...)

Hmmm, love to try it, but I don't think I'll ever get anyone else to play. It's in pretty good condition for it's age and caliber.

This is one I'll probably give to Deb's church, which has a small but fast growing game collection for teen nights. I wonder where they came from...?

Hey, Liar's Dice for kids!

I'll hang on to this in case my friend's kids come over and I can sit on them long enough to play a game with me. Haven't had much luck with that lately - they still remember the Never-ending Heimlich Incident. But recently I gave them one of the half-dozen Perudo sets I've thrifted (see below) after teaching them the game at a wedding reception, so maybe they're primed to take the old man on.

If not, off to the church it goes!

Perudo, I ever pass this up just on general principles. This one suprised me, it had the thick, heavy stone-age plastic cups.

I'll keep this set (it was only missing one blue die) and gift the others I have. I love doing that - teaching the game then saying "Oh, you like this? Well, keep it!"

I got many more this week (including two that were not in the database and are currently backlogged), but this was the best find. Not in great condition, but all the pieces were there, and my favorite bonus: filled-in scoresheets, in this case maps.

We like finding these and analyzing the play and drawing wild conclusions about the people who played. I found a Bowlo game (a pretty funny bowling simulation using cards) that had five or six scoresheets filled out, dozens of games, all between the same two players. Man, I was tired of that game after *one* play, these people were rocks!

Scrabble is another game that usually has completed scoresheets indicative of incipient marital strife. In our case Deb glues the tiles to the racks - "PEACE", LOVE YOU", etc. - then finishes them nicely and gifts them. We never play, Thank God.
