This is the traditional monthly Thrift & Bargain Dumpster.


A fitting place for discussing rejects and leftovers spotted while thrifting and bargain hunting. If you please: cast those items in the T&B-Dumpster!

Add items you left wherever you were sniffing around. Don't fill the dumpster with truckloads of Monopolies, Trivial Somethings and other regular leftovers. But rather add peculiar items, items that looked as if the cat dragged them in or items that caught your eye in some other special way.

Regular stuff accompanied by a good story is obviously also worth listing. As a guideline, take this into consideration: "Do the thrifters want to know about this?"

This list is also well suited to discuss those should-I-go-back-for-it items. Feedback you will get, from either end of the scale, from 'how could you, you amateur!' to 'best decision you ever made, you are the King!'

In the description, try to mention the state the game was in, the asking price, and other details worth knowing about. Oh... and please close the lid behind you. Thanks.

Last month's T&B-Dumpster:
Wear protective gear before opening and be prepared to fend off any scattering rats.
Unwanted Rejects - Thrift/Bargain Finds Left Behind: January 2012

Our GeekGuild:
Please mind the stacks of games. Don't mention the musty smell and try not to sneeze.
The Ancient and Loyal Order of Thrifters thanks you.

I came across this at my favourite opp shop, but did not pick it up. First, it was missing the red luxury car extension piece (everything else was in very good condition), second, it did not have a price (though that would probably not have been a problem), third, I don't think I'd ever play it, and fourth, I don't think I could sell it on *bay here.

Looked in good condition. All the figures. But at 7.99, meh reviews - it doesn't look worth it.

$10 at GW new in box, sealed. I normally don't go for Cranium, but as it was sealed I mulled over whether I wanted it as a future gift for a while. Still unsure.

The WTF list is gone now, right - condensed into this list?

Now, I'm sorry I didn't grab the delightful Drunken Hookup "party" game that's "designed to get you sex". Since it's not in the database, I might need to go back and pick it up for posterity. And maybe by taking it off the streets, I can help someone avoid the unwanted consequences of such activity...

Left this behind for $3 at the flea today. It was in very nice condition and unpunched, but I just didn't need it. Mistake? I guess if it had some resale/trade value I might have grabbed it...

Now *this* was tempting to pick up, just for the title. Unfortunately I'm pretty sure the title would be the best thing about the game. Left behind at the flea, didn't even ask the price.

Found a 'deluxe' version of this card game from 1983. Three dollars at Savers was too much for me to pick it up, I'd never get around to playing it.
