$1.91 complete at VoA -with all the bagged items. The cloth game storage bag was even in the plastic bag! This looks like a decent little abstract and seems to have decent ratings -just not enough to rank it. Plus, I'm a sucker for a scoretrack.

I also picked up (at the expensive GW) a complete Dragon Strike (Hasbro) for $2.99, and a Monopoly Express at Half Price Books for $3.98. Someone was selling a Monopoly Express on Craiglist for $10 (in blister pack), and I offered $5 but never heard back. So now I have one. I never see these in the thrift stores. I take that back -I saw the Scrabble Express once, but wasn't very interested.

I don't usually worry about mentioning these sort of finds but at a car boot sale yesterday a chap was selling a large bag of plastic game bits for just £1.00, here's what was inside:

60 houses and 4 cars from 'Junior Monopoly',
99 variously coloured pawns (50 were blue),
50 large counters (25 red, 15 purple and 10 cyan)
12 red and 3 white cubes,
10 poker dice,
9 backgammon doubling-dice,
5 utilities dice from 'Monopoly Express',
3 roman numerals dice,
22 D6, 3 D12, and 11 D4.

The D12s and D4s were particularly nice as they were the good quality transparent type (well worth the £1 alone). A total of 292 bits to add to the ever growing misc collection. shake

$3.99 at local thrift -- unplayed.
Also contains a second set of cards 1-20
one grey covered pamplet of RULES
one unseparated set of 8 badge cards
4 other booklets (Two are light blue, two are white) -- SET #2 and SET #3
Two more sets of Clue Cards (#21 - # 40 and #41 - 60)
Since there are more than 16 badge cards and a second set of clue cards 1-20, this may have been a combination of two sets.
Definetly unused, no sheets removed from the clue pads.
Will need to seek more info on this game.

Well for 50 cents at Goodwill I picked another of these up in case someone is in need of one for their Zombies: Last Night on Earth variant. I have not actually read the variant rules yet. Are the electronics needed? These don't seem to work even after replacing the 2001 batteries in it and cleaning the one terminal that had an issue.

This appears to be a slightly different version because there are no guys involved in the shopper lists and all the pawns are females. Box is fairly beat up.

Edit: Missing the yellow credit card.

The last of my Goodwill finds continues the rash of this game being found with the pewter minis. It was 50 cents. It is complete but the box has some issues and the rules show more use then the game does.
