$1.99 at Goodwill - 1949 version - seems to have two sets of pieces. One set of body colors are sooo 50s: peach (actually more like "band-aid" pink), pale teal, mustard, etc.

OK, so this is not much of a game, BUT my daughter is studying insects, and this gave her some fun putting them together - in the conventional and unconventional configurations. Most of the bodies were cracked, but a bit of superglue put them to rights.

$1.50. Amvets. Still need to inventory.

I've gotten a couple of RK books for a buck, which I'll include when I sell these. Hopefully they'll increase the value.

Inventoried, and missing two or three cards, nothing serious, but I can no longer claim 100%.

A week ago i happened to see a craigslist ad that said "board game store closing, everything 50% off" so i went there and bought 4 small games.

Well, a couple days later i saw the same craigslist ad, but this time it says, "EVERYTHING 75% OFF!" I see $$$ in my eyes, and i had to wait 2 days until they opened up for the sale. The sale started at noon, and i got there at 1:45, but i had cased the place out the week before. this is what i got.......
14 copies of cities and knights..... $10.50 each

I had cased the place the previous week during their 50% off sale, so i knew pretty much what i wanted when i got there, and just started making huge stacks of games.
During the half hour i was there i had to fend off several other disappointed customers who were eying up my stack of games.
