No instructions, but a smidge over or under two sets of tiles. I will need to find a letter-frequency-chart to separate them.

Another find by dad.

I really, really hate Sequence.
Thanks for a version that's likely even worse, dad.

Oh, this and a copy of "Byronopoly," yet another %@$#@#@#% Monopoly knock-off I don't need.

Grabbed this at B&N's clearance sale for $7.50. I was against it, but my girlfriend insisted and for so cheap, why not? I looked it up when I got home and it's not as far down in the ratings as I feared. Hopefully we can play soon with a few people.

found the 1976 bookcase version at garage sale for only $1.00
it is missing the $100 and $500 denominations but everything except the box (showing some wear and maybe a little water) is in great shape
the lady running the garage sale kept telling what a good game and how much she liked playing - lamenting a lack of willingness of family members to playing
