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.

I finally got a little bit of a haul at VV. First up is this game for $2.87. THe box is a little beat up and a couple pieces are broken, but all the parts (including the broken off parts) are accounted for.
At Goodwill in Lancaster, PA (pardon me if I'm hitting someone else's territory while on vacation), I found this game. Although the box does not want to hold together well, all the parts are there. It was $1.97.
I've found a few of the 2nd and 3rd editions but never this one (5th ed) The game board is more attractive (IMO) but it seems to only be the "light" version of the original. Complete and in excellent condition. Someone probably bought it at a gift shop then shelved it. $2.99
Schmidt Spiele German edition from the 70th, similar to the AH bookshelf edition pictured. Could not pass it for 2 Euro, even though the box looks a bit aged. Inside components are complete and look as new
