I've been lying in wait, waiting for someone else to post this week's installment of "lucky finds."

Boom. And I'm right on top of it.

That's right We the People, people. Wasn't exactly a bargain, but considering there was precisely one copy available in the BGG.con flea market and I ended up with it, it was a bargain to me. $65.

My wife and I have been to the game-fair 'Spellenspektakel 2007' in Zwolle (The Netherlands) and picked up 11 in shrink games. The following 9 are what I think were the Bargain Finds.

The other 2, Celtica and LotR-The Duel, were lesser bargains that I won't add here.

Mexica (Ravensburger) by Wolfgang Kramer/Michael Kiesling

My find of the day for €10. This completes the Mask-Trilogy in my collection.

Carcassonne de Burcht (999 Games) by Reiner Knizia/Klaus-Jürgen Wrede

Only €12. Wanting to dip my toes in this whole Carc thing, I was on the lookout for the City version but stumbled upon this one cheap. This is my first (and possibly last) Carc game.

Since I'll go to the movie next week, my eye caught this game. At €15 it was a no brainer for me. I'll play it to get into the mood.

I picked this up for €8. Not the best bargain maybe, but I've been tempted to buy this full price in the past.

Der Herr der Ringe - Die Gefährten (Kosmos) by Tom Dalgliesh

A Germany only release, bought by my LotR-fan companion for a mere €5. Not the best game ever going by the ratings, but we'll see.

Tricks (White Wind) by Alan R. Moon

I thought this was an odd one to find in the "near-trash-bin" at a measly €1. Could be a fun early Alan Moon, it seems it's not that early after all being from 1995.

Scrabble Kaarten (Spears)

Same "near-trash-bin", another €1 coin. No budding game designer should be without a supply (110 in the Dutch ed.) of alphabet cards. I regret not having grabbed a 2nd copy.

---

Total for those 9 games: €68.00
Grand total for all 11 : €95.50

Incidently, a free copy of StarWars Top Trumps was handed out when leaving the fair. Mine is going to a SW afficionado friend.

Ah hello, this one is fair ebait (at £15/$30) so was worth picking up for £1.45 at Barnardos. Original white box version, complete (+1 extra green chip) and excellent condition (until I teared a bit off the back as the shop had _double_ taped one side but none of the others, doh!).
