Also free at the same Estate sale.

There were a couple of other games there, Pokeno and some others I don't remember, but I only took these three. I guess I'm not quite a 'real' thrifter yet.

There is absolutely no hope left for me. I actually got excited because I had yet be able to post anything on the thrift store/bargain finds" posts. For the most part, I had still been paying a pretty penny, or trading, for most of my games. Not anymore. I was estate saling last weekend, and came accross not 1, but 2 copies of this game at the same sale. And so me, being the gracious person that I am, liberated both copies, (for $1.50 each mind you), and now feel more complete! Is that sick?
Josh

ps. I also found an original copy of Boggle for $1.50 at the sale, that had all its peices as well, so it came home with me. 3 games total, less then 5 bucks.

I'm way late to this week's party, but I've been on vacation and didn't have time to find the right entry for this game. It's the edition pictured, although I expected it to have its own entry—it was a time-consuming dig to find the one relevant picture in the gallery.

Anyway, the box contained all ten figures, but only one of the two maps and some of the markers; the rest was missing. So the store (Salvation Army) accepted my plea for a discount and knocked it to $1.99.

I guess this is a parts copy now.
