1999 version, $4.99, unplayed. Salvation Army know how to price games, all the other rubbish stuff was $1.99.

Already have the deluxe version, so perhaps a good one to give away or keep for a back up. Bringing up to Bordercon in Albury, popular late Saturday night game. I think they played this until 2am last time.

I also found a Pro Shot Taylormade Golf game, with a 20cm golfer who swings and hits the ball. Didn't buy it, as at $15 it was a little expensive and it was missing a couple of clubs - but it looked very cool and it's not in the BGG database! May regret it, but the box was huge. Already buy too many large box thrift store games that never get played.

My first 3M Bookshelf Game (well, except for Feudal which I had ages ago). $1.99 at the SA in Gardner, my first find there. The box is in bad shape, looks like the back had some paper stuck to it at some time and about a 1/2" swath of the glued-on sheet on the back cover tore off. Also lots of shelf wear. However, it is complete and the bits are in great shape. Looks to be an interesting abstract.

On my weekly tour of the thrift stores in The Hague, I decided to check the FLGS at the other side of the city. It turned out that they had a sale of demo copies. Most of the good stuff had already gone, said the owner, but I did see a few games that I wanted.

First: Principato. Complete and in good condition, 5 euro.

And then also: The Impossible Machine. Complete, in good condition except for a large sticker "demo copy" on the box front. 2 euro.

I almost bought this one in Essen last year, so I'm curious to see how it plays.

By the way, the owner of the store and I chatted for a while, and she told me she also visited the thrift store. She mainly buys games there for the parts, which she can then sell in her shop. The most sought after item seemed to be Scrabble boards.

In a thrift store I found De kinderen van Catan.

I already bought this game a couple of months ago, but that copy was missing one of the buildings. Ordering a spare part from the publisher would cost 1.50 euro. Today's copy was 1 euro, so I made a profit!

The game will go to my little niece.

$4 at GW

Saw this the day before in GW. Didn't think much of it until I got home amd realized it commands about $150-$200 on eBay. Goodness knows that I was back at the goodwill the next day, opening time. It was still there. And bonus, it was sealed!

This is the reprint Canadian edition that came out in around 2000. Similar cover to the posted, but the sky is blue and the Kung-Fu style subtitle "the legend continues" is on the box.

Opened the package to ensure no damaged parts before sending on eBay. I assume having this sealed would have not increased its value signifcantly. (unless someone was planning to hang it on their wall instead of actually playing it.)

OOK!
Remember last week, when I passed on Abalone because it was too expensive? Good times, yeah? I kicked myself a little because I realized if I made a BGG trade to get it, I'd just end up paying for a bunch of postage, probably equal to or exceeding the cost of Abalone... I went back to Good Willy's today and it was still there for $6.99. So you can either attribute my actions last week to youthful foolishness, or this week to senility.

It still had, to my irritation, the $1.99 sticker from Val's on it. So it's been thru the thrift cycle more than once.

EDIT -- Has anyone got a copy of the rules? What I thought were the rules turned out to be an insert advertising the North American Federation of Abalone.

Hyperdash $3 at Yard Sale

Yard sales are in full bloom today..Spent most of my morning, going from sale to sale, and even leaving behind some good stuff (like a box of Atari 2600 and 7800 carts).

Found Hyperdash today...Already have and a big fan of Hyper Slide, which is similar, except this is a relay race type of game instead of sliding the colored pucks.

On an oddball note, I also picked up working trombone for $25.

...After work, I stopped by a couple other stores. The first was a local charity thrift and it had nothing I hadn't already seen. The second was St. Vinnie's, where I found a penny on the ground just outside. I'm not saying I'm superstitious, but it seems that whenever I've picked up a penny outside a thrift store, I've at least found something worth buying. Friday was no different.

This looks as if it's unplayed (shocker! wow) and was $3.99.

Then, stashed in the shelf of an entertainment center, I found this. It was $2.99 (still at St. Vinnie's), complete and even partially unpunched. I don't think this was a case of someone else putting it aside, as the other games it was with were blah. I think this was just a case of a shelf-stocker finding someplace to put the overflow from the game shelf.

It wasn't outstanding, but chalk up another decent find after picking up a penny on my way into the store!
