My family and I just came back from a vacation in northern WI. Last Monday, we all went to a flea market (two hockey rinks worth and outside too) in Hayward, WI. Found a sealed copy of: The People Vs. O.J. Simpson Trivia Game for $15. Really wanted it so a bargined it down to $8, no bargin, yet it is so cool. The seller said that they were withdrawn from the market soon after release.

Who can't forget those heady summer days of OJ slowing trying to escape in a white ford bronco?

Just too cool.

I found this at Goodwill for $1.50 and it looks like it was just put on the shelves of the local game store brand new! It was mostly unpunched and in incredibly good condition.

Local Thrift store on El Camino in San Carlos turned up this game with a board layout like that of Labyrinth.
Was $2.99 but 1/2 price Saturday made it $1.63 inc tax out the door.

Definitely my personal find of the week. I've owned Ticket to Ride several times in the past, but have given away the copies to friends. This copy is complete, gently played, has the remains of one sticker on the box, and was $1 at a garage sale.

I picked up the 1976 version of Playoff, which is not pictured on the Geek. It features an endorsement by Jack Klugman and Tony Randall, the Odd Couple, "It's our kind of rummy game." Looking through the game I was amused to find there are Klugman and Randall cards included in the deck. For many years I spent Friday nights with my uncle. Our scripted evening was stop at the comic shop/used book store, pick up burgers at Burger Chef, then watch a few light comedies including The Odd Couple. $1.99 at Value Village.
