not really that exciting but I found a faux crocodile poker chip case at GW today for 2.99. A while back I found about 500 poker chips at GW that were just loose in a tupperware bin so this is for those. The poker chips in general have become invaluable as a replacement for paper money in games like Railroad Tycoon.

that is all.

1971 yellow box edition. Almost complete, looks like it's only missing one whiskey barrel and two of the ship masts. This version doesn't appear to have the little plastic island in the middle of the board.

A dollar fifty at a small local thrift.

Not *that* Colditz, this is the *other* Colditz game. I had no idea there were two until just now. lol

Still, insanely cool thing to find. Never thought I'd see 'Colditz' in a thrift here.

Another dollar fifty at a small thrift. Box has some splits, and the game surface has a good amount of dishing. Missing one yellow pawn, and the spinner needs some loosening up.

The dishing I've had great success fixing with febreze and heavy books. Not sure about loosening up spinners. Is there a trick to that?
