Some dishing on the box, and normal shelf wear but really decent shape over all, looks hardly played.

will ship USPS flat rate game box.

For the old style thinner boxes I can fit two games to a box so I can ship two for the price of one.

If you did not get enough birdies over on Mull, there is Handa Island:



We will be heading to the northern bit of the island next, stopping at Smoo Cave, a hollowed out limestone cavern.


If you want some local craft purchases, Balnakeil Craft Village is close by.

Finally, we will stop at John O'Groats, supposedly the northern most tip of the main island. But only if you want to say you've visited there. Dunnet Head is actually further north. And Duncansby Head is apparently more beautiful:

Now here's a change of pace... A game I didn't already have.

Was very surprised to find this pristine un-played copy of a 1984 edition of this game at GW for $3.00. Worse defect, some slight dishing to the box.

Not a title that high, (no pun intended), on my want list, but it was in such beautiful like-new condition I simply couldn't leave it behind to be gored and gutted.

And hey, it's not a game that I already had. Woot!

Owned by 187 users.

As a frequent thrift shopper, I own quite a few obscure games that may be cool but I simply haven't played yet. This is one of them, but it is at least historically significant since it's a boxed version of a game from Robert Abbott's New Card Games.

Since you capture the card you land on (you're basically trying to create poker hands), it can be viewed as an ancestor to Hey That's My Fish! High Hand also has a partnership element : any player can declare that another player will be their partner for the rest of the round. This should make it tense & interesting if I ever get it to the table.

Found in shrink (box is bowed in a little) for $3 at the Eastside GW. Didn't know anything about it, but I was glad to learn on BGG that it was by Robert Abbott. I recently borrowed his card games book from the library but haven't read it yet. Turns out this was in the book, but I like the packaged game's graphic design. Will try to talk some friends into trying it with me.

Depicted version. Sealed in a shrink, although I am not convinced that it is the original shrink. It is how I received it. I can open it up if someone wishes for a component check, or can leave it in shrink.

Soft reserve: $10

High Hand! This looks like a very fascinating game yet not well played here on BGG. Anyone familiar with it?

Oh yeah, since it had a blue tag on it, the game cost $0.98!

Two store trips -- one a bust, and another was gang-busters. And my wife says I have a problem . . .

You win some, you lose some. Another game without auction value. I do hope it has some play value; it looks at least potentially interesting. $1.91, Hicksville Unique.

Only a $1.50 at local DI. Good condition, got all pieces and rule book. It's a rummy game that has a twist to it by using pawns to collect the crds on the game board. I like rummy games, so we will see how this one rates when I play it.

This was a thrift store find. It has a helpful player aid, and is built of forming what are basically poker hands, making it easy to teach. The declaring-a-winner mechanic is a nice element, but still it is a light game.

$1.99 at GW. While the box and board are in good shape, it is missing all of the cards and pawns.

A Craig's list boasted 200 games and puzzles to sell! While no "gems" I picked up some Secret Santa stuffers, church donations, and a few keepers for $10 or .58 cents per game.

7 of 17.

Unpunched.
