One of those just-passing-by thrift visits that turned into a bit of an adventure, mainly because it's not that easy to get this game's monster box home in a bicycle pannier. I might not have tried if I hadn't regretted passing on another copy (which did go to a good home).

Judging from the used plotting pad this was well-played but well-kept: missing one of the white plastic painting stands and the rules replaced with a printed copy.

A slightly steep $6 at Value Village - they really do price on box size.

With Mrs. Swan tucked (barely) under my arm I kept looking...

50 cents, Hastings Goodwill. 100% complete.

It was nice to find something, even if it's just a kid's game. It looks interesting, though.

The BGG entry notes that this "bears only a slight resemblance" to the original Settlers of Catan; for me that's a plus. The original owner was probably expecting a better likeness, since they don't seem to have played this version at all.

The 2005 revised edition, complete and like new for $3 at Value Village.

Balancing my two games I moved to leave; you'd think I'd be satisfied, but I still gave the shelves that thrifty last look. A voice softly sang always spare a parting glance (I think it was Robrob)...

Unpunched, still wrapped, and like new for $6 at Value Village. I'd been wanting to try this one and we have a big casual group this Friday.

Never neglect that parting glance at the shelves.


Edit: played this tonight with five, me as the nuns (who lost to a laudanum fiend). Certainly the most recent game I've seen in a thrift, and one of the most successful I've picked up new or otherwise. Keeper.

This complete WITH the previous owners entire custom campaign notes intact...woot!

$4.99

I passed an old aggravation, mostly because it was missing a few marbles and basically I'm sick of having aggravation in my house.

the hardest thing to leave behind was a HeroQuest Kellars Keep expansion. Was pretty excited to find this only to discover upon opening that it was missing EVERYTHING but the instructions....sigh. I asked the manager on duty of he saw the base game come through here, but he hadn't. Makes me wonder if I missed a big haul that came out earlier.

Last pick up was this wargame for my husband. I couldn't remember if he had it or not, but he's asked me to pick up any reasonably priced wargames (as if I'd leave them behind!). He didn't have it, but after reading it through, he decided against keeping it. I'm not sure if it's complete - everything was in baggies, but I'll have to inventory later. One corner of the box was crushed. $3.43, Allentown Rd Value Village.

So I'm not sure if these games are coming from one household with eclectic tastes or if they just had a string of good donations. I'm hoping the trend will continue tomorrow.

Edit: Finally inventoried and it's complete.

Went to GWO today for the first time in 3 or 4 weeks. I walk in and there's a guy and his wife picking up games. "Oh great", thinks I. But no worries - they're picking up crummy games!

A few aisles later I walk into an empty A&A box cry Determined to find the rest of the game (I've done it before), I started to look through nearby bins. Found a couple of battle boards and a pamphlet with rules clarifications. Oh, and the box was not 100% empty - it had some Styrofoam parts holders, one German plane, and one US control marker.

None of the other nearby bins had anything else, so I continued on my rounds, finding nothing after I got done. So then I decided to backtrack through the previous bins and work my way back to the front door. Way back on the first aisle I found the map board, all the national player boards, and the rule book. I tore that place apart, looking even through the dreaded clothes bins for loose army dudes. I found nothing, but pretty happy with what I came out with. I suppose my 2004 edition pieces will work with the old board, if I wanted to do that.

Stopped in at Salvation Army this week. The 50% off color of the week was purple. The color of the tag on the previously passed up on copy of this game was...yes...purple.

I wouldn't pick it up for $3.04 - even if it does contain an unbroken, fully intact chandelier. But for $1.52, I can do that. Haven't inventoried the rest of the game. I have to check my other copies of this. I have one copy that is 100% with a good chandelier and another copy that may be missing a few pieces. Anything that's left over will go up on the spare parts list.

Let's see, I've found Battleball with the outsert, tube Pente with the end cap and now TWO copies of 13 Dead End Drive with unbroken chandeliers!

Why the heck can't I find Animal Upon Animal or Labyrinth: The Card Game? shake

In an ongoing quest to keep complete games complete and out of the hands of marauding hordes of the TSIS and their incredibly annoying and destructive children, I picked this up at St. Vincent for $3.99. The cards are still in shrink.

A bit of thrift karma in that as when I took the box off the shelf, I noticed behind it was an electronic dice randomizer (also known as R2D6) with a $.59 price tag on it. Pressing on his head, he didn't seem to work, but decided I'd pick him up anyway.

When I got home and opened up the battery door, I found the little plastic strip was still inserted between the batteries!

Later in the week I noticed the rest of the trivia game on the shelf. The cards were out of shrink, but the rest of the minis were still bagged inside. I would have bought it to keep it all together but I already have the minis - and they wanted $5.99 for it!

Yesterday was another example of the "save it from the unwashed masses" purchase.

A Battle Box starter set of this was on the shelf at Goodwill, marked at $3.99. Ouch. But it had been closed up with painters tape before donating (the GW clear tape was over the top of that) and it felt awfully heavy for only 100 cards.

I opened it up and it is full of various decks and sets of cards, some in sleeves.

No idea on the value (if any) but as I stood there watching kids opening and dumping game boxes all over, I knew I couldn't leave this.

And today was back to St. Vincent. Not much there - not sure if they are shipping things out, selling them or stashing them in the back until they move to their new (larger) location at the end of next month.

This was stashed way back on the top shelf. I wasn't quite sure what I was seeing, other than it was hardwood.

A fantastic birdseye maple cribbage board - 10" across for $3.99




There is a circle of copper on the bottom that you rotate for access to the pegs in their individual storage holes. Sadly, three were taped on the top of the board and there weren't any inside.

This is promised to a fellow geek.
