Looks like they have a lot this time around. It's been offered for about 45 minutes as of this writing.

Tanga Trash Day!

EDIT--It's expensive for Tanga Trash, but you'll never know what's inside.

I ended up selling three out of four items for $10 in geekgold. I'm not doing it again. Unlike woot bag 'o craps, the fact they put 3-4 items in it, seems to ensure you won't get a great game out of it.

The last Tanga Trash I bought I got Saga and Ice Towers... and Dead Hand Chaos Poker. Not bad for $9. But I've read about people getting a lot better and a lot worse. It's totally a gamble.

I got one this time in hopes I'll land a copy of Scepter of Zavandor... yea right.

I love my Homer Simpson bottle opener. Every beer I have is an event!

Oh, yeah, I got some games with it, too.

My guess is that they are putting Jericho games in all tanga trash since they have often been selling them by the case! I just hope its not 2 or 3 Jericho games.

As you can guess, I pulled the trigger earlier on this with not much thought. Buying Tanga trash is like a reflex sometimesshake.

And its gone. I got my trash 2 days ago and was disappointed... not a single decent game. The other 2 items are on Ebay and I'll be lucky if I break even.

Well, I got California (which I've set aside for Christmas) and Nottingham (which I've set aside to burn) as well as some Z-Man rpgs which I haven't even looked at (we use the D20 system), I don't think I'd do it again though.

It must be over. Right now they are offering some collectible/constructable racer game for $8.99 when I click the link in the OP.

I'd much prefer Woot's bag-of-crap, but the problem is, you can never get it. Competition for it is too fierce. angry

Trash was the operative term, this time around.

Got a plastic dinosaur, jigsaw puzzle and a set of two balls, one will bounce, one will not - magic trick type devices. Very sad that not a single game was enclosed.

Oh well, maybe next year will see a higher quality trash.

Well I got the plastic Dinosaur, Rocketville and Carcasone Hunters and Gatherers so I did quite a bit better than Brad.

Wow. Mine didn't even leave Houston until this past Wednesday. It's supposed to arrive at my workplace on Monday.

Trash arrived today (Woo!). Inside were:

That plastic dinosaur everyone's getting (going to my cousin's kids probably)
Carcassonne main game (very happy!)
Anagramania (looks cool too!)

Very happy with my first trash purchase!

Ok, this totally sucks! First off my box is no way near 6.5 lbs even though that is what it's listed as. I got no boardgames or cardgames. In fact, I don't even think I got my money's worth - so I won't be buying tanga trash ever again! I got a puzzle?! A PUZZLE!! cry plastic dinosaur, and NCAA basketball dvd trivia! I don't even know anyone that watches basketball and don't have any kids - this was such a waste of money. soblue

Well, I'm not shocked with what I got, but none of it is useful to me.

The obligatory dino...given to a co-worker for her grandson.
A classic car puzzle...looking for a home.
A Greek mythology mosaic puzzle...nice looking, maybe a gift to one of the history teachers at work.

Puzzles are neat...if you like puzzles. I don't, so this box o' trash was wasted on me.

Yeah I got two puzzles and a dinosaur. It is a shame because this Tanga Trash purchase was what pushed me into STU territory. I was hoping that the Tanga troupe would give me something special

I had $5 Tanga Cash, so I bit. I got Intrigue, The Very Hungry Caterpillar Game, and a toy dinosaur. Not bad. I've got two gifts for my daughter, and one decent game for myself.
