Over the past few months, I have read and contributed to many eBay and thrift store find lists or journals. Today, I beat them all.

I am a sixth grade teacher, and I have talk to my students about my game collection. This morning a student walks up to give me a present for Christmas, and he meekly says, "I got it at a garage sale." I look in his hand, and it is a complete copy of PanzerBlitz. Keep in mind that I have never really told him about this game...it was just a whim that he thought I might enjoy this game. Funny thing is...I have been recently looking to acquire a copy. This was much better than the normal "Teachers make a difference" garbage.

Wow what a stroke of luck
That is very cool. A nice game to add to your collection. I have also been looking for Panzerblitz. Maybe I will be able to find one at a local garage sale for next to nothing. Well probably not but you can aquire some nice stuff at junk sales.

Robo Rally
I was happy to pick up Robo Rally at a garage sale last year for a few bucks. I had wanted it but didn't want to pay full price. I'm glad I didn't, since I don't really enjoy the game and can't get anyone else to play it.
