Catching up on logging my finds from last week. This was a Craigslist find where I got 3 games for $25. This appears to be the German edition, but it has English rules.

Catching up on logging my finds from last week. This was a Craigslist find where I got 3 games for $25.

This is the 1st Mayfair edition. Unfortunately, it appears to be missing a few things:

1x black 30 chip
1 Christin P. Art Card

1x 100 chip
6x 50 chip
5x 20 chip
9x 5 chip

What better way to spend Mother's Day than to go thrifting. I had a gut feeling that I needed to go to Goodwill. Good thing I did. So I got Stratego Lengends for $3.99.

Odd, but I have 46 grey pieces and 47 white pieces. Not familiar enough with the game to know if I have part of an expansion, but it doesn't fit the descriptions of what I've seen...

Saturday I was in an area I haven't thrifted before so of course I needed to look for games. First up was the bottom right version for $2.99 at Goodwill.

And then this at St Vincent for $2. This game looks well taken care of. Everything is bagged and even the box itself is fairly clean and unmarred.

Had the day off on Monday/Tuesday because my parents were in town visiting. When they left Tuesday I had some time to kill, so I went out seeking new finds.

First up was this for $2.from Value Village.

Found at Savers, complete and excellent condition - $4.99. Not sure if going to keep or try to trade, I'll probably play test with my friends before deciding.

Woot! Woot! Savers $3.99 Game in excellent condition, Missing pewter figures and dice, 70 monster standies counted, not sure if there are supposed to be more. I'm pretty excited about this, seems like a good, easy way to break in my daughter to RPG's. Except - TSR? early 90's? nooooooo! THAC0!!
