Couldn't pass up a dice game, let alone a box full of multi-colored die. Another $3.75 at the B&N clearance table.

Turns out the dice in these are colored AND transparent. Nice! They had two more copies, but I must not collect dice. I must not collect dice. Even though I might need them for a future thrift of Can't Stop, I must not collect dice.

Woohoo! Another Crokinole find!

This time right across the street from the place I found the one just the other week. This one was 8 bucks at SVdP, but is a much nicer board (not unlike the one shown, but with a yellower finish) and came with 2 sets of discs. they taped the discs to the playing surface, which I was sure was going to leave some residue, but somehow it came off leaving none (had the goo gone at the ready and everything).

This one's going straight up to the cabin, so i don't have to lug the other one up and down the island.

Found a Yahtzee: Texas Hold'em there for 2 bucks, which I picked up because I like the dice. Turns out, the contents were still sealed. I also immediately repurposed the drawstring bag to hold the Crokinole discs rather than the ziplock bag they came in.

All in all, a good day at Vinnie's.

Not your average thrift find, but I thought it was a good deal.

Was trolling Goodwill's auction site when I saw a header somewhere along the lines of "USED CLUE FAMILY GAME." I immediately scrolled past it, until I noticed the thumbnail, and jumped in thinking I'd hit literal gold. You see, what I thought I was seeing was the Franklin Mint version, but after some research (and a preemptive bid, haha) I realized it was a reproduction of that set made by Restoration Hardware. I had a hard time figuring this out actually, because they seem to have been made in a very small run, and there's not even a dedicated version for this on BGG (and I was sort of daunted by the version submission process. Maybe I'll do it later). In fact, the image I used for this is the ONLY picture I found for the version on BGG.

All the same, I realized I'd stumbled on a very nice collector's item, and decided to see if I could win it anyway. Other than my bid, it went untouched. My theory is, everyone saw "CLUE" and immediately bypassed it, while a copy of "Ticket to Ride" was in the middle of an all out bid-war a few items down.

Just got it in the mail today! It is PRISTINE, other than a few (minor) scuffs on the board. Very satisfied.

3.99 @ shopgoodwill.com (plus shipping and handling, so technically 23.99)

$4.94 at Goodwill in Jupiter, FL. Completely sealed. I have had the game Kaleidos on my Wishlist for a long time. Well, this fills the gap. Looks like a lot of fun, although I would worry about replayability with only 24 pictures.

I had about 20 minutes of free time today so I swung by Texas Thrift and found a few interesting things. Picked up the 1980 version of Can't Stop for $.99. Not too shabby. Its short one of the white markers. I can make do while I wait for someone with a spare to pop up. It looks fun and I think my Farkle loving in-laws will like it.

Can't Stop was the best and first game in the stack of old games they had at the Texas Thrift, but this funny little thing was underneath. After reading the reviews, it looks like a good drunken interruption game when we have a marathon table top RPG nerd weekend. Last time we played Chug A Lug, and this looks like more fun. $1.99.

Last (and least) was the 1974 version of Easy Money. But heck, I figured since I have Monopoly and Careers, I might as well pick up this one, too. Come to think of it, I don't really enjoy Monopoly or Careers. I'm just a sucker for an old board game, I guess. $1.99 at Texas Thrift.

I found one of these, with the River, about two years ago for $2. it was complete except one tile looked like the dog got to it. So when I saw another tonight for $2, I thought ok. The box has one badly torn corner cry, but I can tape it up. It looked like a lot of tiles and meeples and they were all in a cloth bag. Wait, the original didn't have a bag! Will check this at home.

First thing I notice is the instructions for Jungle Speed ?!? But nothing else from that game.

Inventory shows all of the tiles and meeples for the base game but no River. The instructions are in French.
There is one extra yellow meeple coloured black. Why, I don't know since all of the black meeples are there.
Extra tiles! Looks like they are from....

All the tiles are there, but the rules are again in French (search the internet), no goods chits (I can improvise) and no Builder or Pig meeples (again, I will improvise). Obviously, no box.

But there are still 5 extra tiles. I don’t know where they are from. They are not the River, Inn and Cathedrals, or the mini expansion since I have those. Oh well.... Just enjoy.

Transformers Armada: Battle for Cybertron Free*

*Not really a thrift find, but it ended up being free.

I was surfing around on eVilbay awhile back, and came across a copy of Transformers Armada: Battle for Cybertron listed as never played and 100% complete.

I've only ever came across one beat up, mostly incomplete copy while thrifting (years ago) and with it's similarities to SW: Epic Duels (Craig Van Ness designed with essentially the same rules set), my kid's recent interest in Transformers, and the fact that competition has gotten so fierce around here I'd probably never thrift a copy again - I did something I never do. I bought a game on eVilbay.

It was advertised as 'free expedited shipping'. But came over a week late. In an envelope. Via Media Mail. Incomplete. soblue

Sigh.

The box (flimsy to begin with) had a bit of damage. I was lucky because that box shipped via Media Mail in an envelope should have been annihilated.

I notified the seller of my disappointment, and didn't expect anything of it.

But she almost instantly responded with a full refund, apologizing saying that someone else had handled this transaction for her while she was away and bunched it up (she had perfect positive feedback). And I was able to get the missing cards from my Parts Box of Infinite Holding.

So my eVilbay tale of loss, ended up being full of win.
