This is the traditional weekly thrift and bargain finds list.
These lists may start empty but as always: add your items.
Put in what you consider a bargain, tell us how much you paid and the place you got it from. Bargains can be thrift store finds or any second-hand purchases or discounted boardgames bought new. Don't forget to add your encounters with the Thrift Store Irritant Squad™ and any other embellishments in order to make it even more interesting.
The Weekly Thrift List Wayback Machine The Grand Vizier is maintaining a list of all the weekly thrift lists through time, and will be adding stats and interesting tidbits for each week. http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/48522

$4, AMVETS, El Cajon (this seems to be their new game price). Plastic tiles.
Woot, I finally found one! Great condition for a 47 year old game. Looks unplayed, money and titles are mostly still stuck in their original pads. Black hotel tiles in a bag and all seven chains accounted for.
I like this version's box art much better than the gray AH edition I've had forever and a day.
And this is why I do what I do. Spotted this immediately, box and pieces in excellent condition. Havent done an inventory yet but the pieces were all carefully bagged, reference cards dice were all there. Excellent copy. Also passed up, Heroscape Marvel: The Conflict Begins, opened up the box and all the components were still bagged but missing all the miniatures and the reference cards. Rummaged through the toys and bags but no sign of the figures.
I did pick up starter copies of old TSR dungeon and dragons, 3 sets. Which ebay very well.
For £1.50 I thought this looked like it could be an interesting game. Very little information about it here on the geek, so maybe I can get a few GG for extra pictures too, but it looks like it might be an interesting little game. Probably not a mind-boggling euro-style commodity trader or anything, but something work a punt, nonetheless.
2.99 at VV. Got it for the 10 cool miniatures since I read here that they're great for pimping Clue: The Great Museum Caper. Box was a quite deformed by moisture. Steamed and ironed it back into shape.
A nice 3-track board very similar to the one pictured from Hoyles Games, along with a deck of poker-sized (or is that standard US size?) cards that look unused in spite of their age (70s) - £1.99, Save the Children, Carlisle.
