Hey fellow bggers,
I'm interested in getting into the thrifting scene, and I know KC generally has good thrift stores -- however, many of the ones I've tried have very few or no boardgames at all. Do you all know of any that generally have a bigger number of board games available? I'm not necessarily looking to find amazing thrift finds -- just a store that maybe has 50-60 games available instead of the 4-5 I usually see.

Any suggestions?

Barnes & Noble might not be a thrift store per se but it has a collection of board games that they sell.

Sorry to be a downer, but from what I've encountered, I'm pretty sure what you're looking for doesn't exist in the KC area. Just heaps of XYZ-Opoly, Trivial Pursuit, checkers sets, etc. If you do happen to find a thrift store that regularly has games that couldn't be found at a 2005 Walmart, please let the rest of us know!

Well, plurgh. I'll keep searching, but I guess we'd all have to move to the Pacific Northwest to find game-topia in a thrift box.
