Picked up at a local used bookstore in pristine complete condition. Paid $10 worth of store credit, of which I am flush. Looks pretty nifty.

Found this mint and in shrink at a thift shop I usually don't visit all that much since it off my usual paths. They were selling everything at 50% off, so I got this for $2.50.

I was really hoping this was not in the system yet. It does look like it needs a box cover photo at least, not sure if mine will do the trick, but I'll try. Kind of a cool find otherwise though. Nice wood board that moves and marbles and dice, all for a buck fifty.

Looks like I will definately be able to add at least a picture or two of this one, since the box cove I found was not in the database. Only 33 cents and probably not worth that?

$12.99 at Value Village. In shrink. The double-edge sword of the thrift store game in shrink: It arrived to them with the retail sticker price of $30 clearly visible.

Shadows over Camelot, Funny Friends, now this. I've been having a quirky bit of luck lately.

3M Acquire! Also $2.99

A little bit rougher shape.

I left behind a copy of High Bid, Foil and two copies of Twixt. PM me if local geeks want to know where they're at (I already own these games...).

This was actually the Risk/Castle Risk edition. It looks like someone combined a couple of games as there were too many counters to fit in the plastic trays. I've never tried Castle Risk and for $1.99 I'll give it a go.

(I hate posting after Ken).

$3.99 at SAVERS, a bit high, but I like WA and thought it worth the price. This SAVERS has high prices on everything - I passed up a copy of Heroquest for $7.99. I can always find it somewhere else for less...
