Found this on the way home from work today, this store puts all their games on a shelf above head level so I saw it from the store entrance. 1st find of this for me and its almost complete. Only missing the standard D6 and two hotel entrances. .54 as it was a half off sale today.

$1 Goodwill. SPI edition. Many markers unpunched. Others included in little trays. Includes a "Fire & Movement" magazine, an early 1980's "Wargamers West" catalog and other advertising inserts - but no maps? shake Doh!

Otherwise the shelves were bare. They didn't even have a single Trivial Pursuit or Scene-It. Although my husband has a special fascination with the battle of Gettysburg and enjoys war games, I suspect this will end up on the trade/sell pile.

I figure if you all can make bank on common Scrabble letters, the more rare numbers must be worth something.

And finally, this was $1.99 at GW.

I have been wanting this one for awhile. It looks fun and even if it sucks, for $1.99 I got a lot of nice ninja figures.
