Inspired by a comment from Drew1365 here:

These are games that you pick up from thrift stores only because there are some components in the game that prove useful for other gaming needs.

I've only run across this one once at the thrifts, but glad I picked it up for the metal coins, miniature barrels and mini Remy Martin bottle.

Four D12 letter dice. One custom D6 marked 2xC, 2xH, 2xblank. Six generic pawns. And the coolest 10-second timer you have ever seen! Roll the marble down the slide and it circles the center hole until it falls with a satisfying 'click'! I want to build a bigger one to use as a three-minute timer!

This is a great game for sand timer, # die, pawns in 2 kinds, small box, box insert, shipping box. I have not figured out what to do with the cards yet.

The pawns work well as same size for inner circle and the white ones can be used as a substitute for can't stop.

The pawns in different colors could be used for Scotland yard.

Or any other game missing pawns.

This game sucks, but I finally have nifty WOO miniatures for Enchanted Forest. I'll re-sell the rest, even if at a loss. This game originally retailed for about $35.00. WOW.

Specifically the Blazing Camels Reprint by MB.
Has 16 camels, 4 People, 2 trees and 2 pyramids.

The camels do as replacements for Through the desert just slightly different colours, or for anytime you just want some misc pieces.

This is a handy travel dice roller, no lost dice and you can make up to 5 rolls at a time. If you can open it up (and close it again!) you can have a custom dice roller too!

Who needs dice boots?

Not just any edition of Yahtzee -- I recommend that you add specifically the 40th Anniversary Edition to your thrifting autograb list.

Here's why:



For just a couple of bucks, you get 5 gorgeous marbled dice, 10 nifty bonus chips that say "Yahtzee" on them, and a 10-inch diameter dice tray that may just surprise you by how nice it is.

You also get a nice dice cup and special Yahtzee pencils, but those aren't such a big deal to me, I'm mentioning them for completeness.

The cards in this game could be used as die replacements. (They even have dice pictured on them!) There are two each of the numbers from 1 to 6 in four different colors, plus some wilds and other extras.

Rumor has it that the dice in this game are perfect substitutes for the substandard dice in Commands and Colors: Ancients.

Judging by the photos for this entry, there seem to be many themed versions.
