This is the traditional weekly thrift and bargain finds list.
These lists may start empty, but as always, add your items.
Put in what you consider a bargain, tell us how much you paid and the place you got it from. Bargains can be thrift store finds or any second-hand purchases or discounted boardgames bought new. Don't forget to add your encounters with the Thrift Store Irritant Squad and any other embellishments in order to make it even more interesting.
Our GeekGuild: Welcome to The Ancient and Loyal Order of Thrifters. Enter the halls of thriftdom at your own risk.

Make sure to bow before our King Hakfoo I, and pay your due respects to previous Kings Belial, Great_Mazinga, minionhunter, Krazygit, EvilTimmy and Blackwind.

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.
BTW- Somebody here was saying they hide their games under the stuffed animals. Now, I'm searching that darn bin.
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.
The human race, to which so many of my readers belong, has been playing at children's games from the beginning, and will probably do it till the end, which is a nuisance for the few people who grow up. - GKC
