I dug this out of a tub of priced items not yet put on the shelves. The somewhat psychedelic board is in good condition. All glass marbles are present. Box top is dished. $2.00 at GW. -While looking for an image to match my version, I realized there are so many really NICE CC boards. Makes me think maybe I've found another theme to collect. whistle

BTW- Somebody here was saying they hide their games under the stuffed animals. Now, I'm searching that darn bin. devil

Found at GW for $1.50, complete. Acutally, it had 111 topps, instead of 100 like the instructions indicated.

The original price tag of $17.99 from Bradlees department store still on the front.

Bonus inside the box? A single #5 card from Rack-O.

1982 Deluxe Edition Scrabble (Selchow & Righter)

Fantastic blue tile trays, perfect rotating board, Scrabble Players Guide, and dark mahogany tiles.

This is for myself and my wife since we are big Scrabble nuts, and we've never had a good change to pick up a cheap Deluxe edition.

$5.99 at the ARC Thrift Store in Broomfield, CO.

$1.54 @ Salvation Army on Friday

Missing a few things, but fortunately had a full set of each of the cards. I needed to complete another copy to sell on Saturday and it was much easier to simply take the full sets of cards and swap them out as I had already inventoried it and knew everything else was there.

Talked them down to $.99 (from $1.99) at St. Vincent since it is missing the rules (like those are really needed ) and 4 of the tokens. Trying to decide if I should hit up the parts list to complete this one - or see if anyone else needs bits.

And then a Warhammer 40,000 Space Marines Codex (4th Edition)

$0.79, GW

Also found a D&D 3E packet of Character Sheets, still sealed, also for $0.79. But I guess technically that's RPG

Don't know this game. I know it's a slippery slope, but I figured it was small and only a dollar.
