My buddy has the week off and wanted to go down to Tucson for a Bookmans run. I went a couple of weeks ago, but figured I had nothing better to do so why not.

Picked this up. I enjoy the base game, but not sure about this. It was $6.00 but free after trade-in credit.

$1.99 at VV

I had always wanted Make & Break, so I thought, "Extreme, eh? Hell, it must be more EXTREME and therefore more BETTER!"

But a few plays reveals (IMHO) that this one seems too simple. The original Make & Break made things a challenge because the blocks are all the same shape; you can only discriminate by colour and you have to closely analyze the challenge card to see how the blocks are organized. In the Extreme edition, because the shapes are different, I find very little challenge in building the block combinations. It becomes a speed race only then, and rather luck-based depending on the cards you and your fellow players draw. Oh well. Great quality of components, however! I'm sure someone will buy/trade for this game.

And that's right... I said "more better."

Also this at Savers for $4.99 complete plus a few extras. It looks like the 'Knight Trebuchet/Orc Mortar' set was included. No instructions. Does anyone know if the instructions add to the base game? Also, there was a rubber boulder that looks like it would fit in the Orc Mortar but, looking at the website, it doesn't look like it was included in that set. Anyone know what's up with that?

This was untaped (?!), box looks almost brand new, and inside all the components were unopened. $1.

Got this mostly because my boys have a fascination with snowboarding, though neither of them have ever been. The box was damaged and heavily taped, and when I got it home I found that a few of the setup pieces were missing. Still, I managed to cobble together enough to set up the mountain and the boys spent the evening launching snowboarders into the air and smiling.

Not bad for $1.

The year is winding down, and so are the quality of finds. The Ravensburger logo and Pirate Theme practically force me to pick up this game, and as I am weak, oh so weak, I don't put up much of a fight. $2 at the Salvation Army Thrift Store.

And finally, there's this one. Not exactly the find with which I wanted to end the thrifting year, but it's gotta end somehow, right? Again the Ravensburger logo tricked me into getting it, as it doesn't seem to be a highly regarded game 'round the Geek.

However bad the actual find is, it was still an extremely awesome thrifting trip where I found it. This was on the weekend. My little girl wanted to go shopping with me ("I LOVE shopping!!") and we spent a wonderful day together. This was the only game I took home, but we also found some books for her and her brother.

She was also overjoyed at finding a collection of Polly Pockets stuff. A carrying case, a few of the dolls and a bunch of clothes. Her collection is quite massive now, but like her Dad she doesn't know when to stop -- she wants more, More, MORE!!! So I'm snatching all the Pollys I can find now. Toward the end of the day she was getting sleepy, and didn't want to go into any more 'Daddy Stores'. Then I asked her if she wanted to look for Pollys in there. Eyes spring open, head starts nodding and she springs out of her car seat to dash to the store. I guess I found me a motivator!

Oh, and remember that she asked Santa for a Purple Kitten? Well, guess what we saw this trip? Yup, another quite cute kitten, stuffed, and purple. I pointed it out to her, she RAN to the shelf, snatched it and held onto it with a vice like grip. At the cash she would not allow the kitten to be put into the bag. When asked who is the best purple kitten finder, Daddy or Santa, she responds "You are Daddy!!" and gives me a HUGE hug. That there is better than any game found at any price. I'm better than Santa. Can you believe it?

Secret Garden. $2 at Value Village.

Never seen this Ravensburger before, but it actually looks playable.

The rules are missing, and the magic in this copy is so strong that it has transformed one event tile into an extra glass stone. Otherwise good condition, 4€ from a fleamarket.

The previous finds were from the suburban areas near Helsinki; I then visited a small town on the south coast and found a charity shop with a nice selection of games.

(Why is this called Which Witch by the way? My copy has an example of just about every creepy creature, but not a single witch... Maybe the english version is different)

1€, complete but well played and the cardboard is broken in the two very narrow parts. This game seems to have a good market.

And finally 2 (technically 4) games not in the database. Karnak is a borderline case, perhaps not a boardgame at all (maybe that's why it's not in the DB) but a kind of future-telling 'game' with ancient Egypt theme. My sister used to own this in the '80s and I remember 'playing' it with her once; have to check the rules more carefully to find out whether or not it could be called a boardgame. Complete and vgc, 1€.

The actual crown jewel however was Arsenal for 1€, a football game so old that the pawns are made of wood, which usually means 40's-50's. A few of them are missing, but fortunately I got a handful of those last year as a sweetener with another boardgame stash. And that's not all; inside was another boxless game from the same era, this time with acrobatic flying theme, and a board from a third game! They're all from the same company which usually means €€€s!

Also, another deck of Harry Potter round playing cards, 0.50€. I think I'll bundle this with the Quidditch card game I found earlier.

Back in the home town yesterday, went to donate a bagful of clothes and other random stuff to a charity shop, then visited the recycling centre. What better way to end the good Thrifting Year of 2009, than with a 2.50€ complete copy of Manhattan, one box corner split, very little played?

Happy New Year to all the good members of Thrift Guild, and happy hunting in 2010!

How does a besieged, yet stalwart thrift-counsellor bolster himself after suffering an unrighteous pillaging at the hands of the irriantant squad?

That's right! Go thrifting! Fortunately, the game data cloud seems to have steered me clear of the north route. Unfortunate in the loss of great games to Okiedokie, but fortunate in not wasting the time in these pre-fleeced stores!

Found this frantic looking vintage Hasbro game/apparatus. Looks a little like Shocking Roulette, without the voltage. $2 at the Value Village.
