Found at Savers for $1.99. This is a game that I've wanted to find/play someday, so I'm very pleased. Virtually new, and complete except for missing green die and two missing green pegs, all of which I could replace.

Pretty sparse in the yard sale department yesterday. I spend all morning and drove all over and not much to show for it.

The nicest thing we found was this Zug um Zug, shrinkwrapped, for €11.

each one for € 5.
