This is the traditional monthly Thrift & Bargain Dumpster™.

A fitting place for discussing rejects and leftovers spotted while thrifting and bargain hunting. If you please: cast those items in the T&B-Dumpster!

Add items you left wherever you were sniffing around. Don't fill the dumpster with truckloads of Monopolies, Trivial Somethings and other regular leftovers. But rather add peculiar items, items that looked as if the cat dragged them in or items that caught your eye in some other special way.
Regular stuff accompanied by a good story is obviously also worth listing. As a guideline, take this into consideration: "Do the thrifters want to know about this?"

This list is also well suited to discuss those should-I-go-back-for-it items. Feedback you will get, from either end of the scale, from 'how could you, you amateur!' to 'best decision you ever made, you are the King!'

In the description, try to mention the state the game was in, the asking price, the location and other details worth knowing about. Oh... and please close the lid behind you. Thanks.

Last month's T&B-Dumpster:
Wear protective gear before opening and be prepared to fend off any scattering rats.
Unwanted Rejects - Thrift/Bargain Finds Left Behind: July 2010


Our GeekGuild:
Please mind the stacks of games. Don't mention the musty smell and try not to sneeze.
The Ancient and Loyal Order of Thrifters thanks you.

Fairly decent-looking copy at Texas Thrift in Irving. Put on a high shelf out of the reach of the kiddies so I could go back for it later. I think they wanted $2-3 for it. It's short on pics and only one owner. Anybody interested in it?

Good condition, all the pieces were there, $2.99 at GW. Just never going to play it, doesn't look like the sort of thing I would play. Really, just a no go.

Version pictured above, still in shrink. Just a buck, but totally unecessary, as the game can be played with a go board, or graph paper and pencils, even.

Red box version pictured above. Just $2.50. Fool to not pick it up? Maybe, but I have one already, and it never gets played (in fact it's probably going in the chain o' generosity box). I'll go back and pick it up if someone wants it for cost + shipping.

Yep. I passed on a Ravensburger edition for $4. Probably brand spanking new. Problem is I already have a second copy that I've been unable to trade and I simply don't have the space to have too many games on my trade pile.

$3.99 at my local Value Village. Had the complete 1976 teams set, and aside from two teams, was completely unpunched.

However, as much as I might enjoy watching baseball from time to time, I didn't think this would ever hit the game table, so I left it behind.

Seeing Dutch Blitz in the Thrift find list reminded me just now that I left behind a shrinkwrapped copy of Dutch Wonderland the board game (which killed me, b/c it's right across from WBC, where I'd like to be right now cry ). And now I find that it's not even in the DB, so I could've gotten GG for picking it up. Sigh.

Even for GG, I still may not pick it up if it's more than a buck - it appeared to be a rethemed Candyland (ugh!).

EDIT: Went back today and it's gone. Some other sucker musta bought it.

Saw a game called Gulf War at Value Village. It had a different box than this, so I'm not sure if it's the same game. It was new in shrink, and a date said 1991 on the box. It was new in shrink for $14.99.

Value Village is out of control.

Love the theme and the glow in the dark aspect which has a nice image that someone posted here:

However, my 4 year old is already past this type of game and it was missing one star and the figure. Hard to leave a nice Ravensburger on the shelf but someone else will get better use out of it hopefully. $2.99 Savers

When I first saw this, the big "PBR" on the box caught my eye and I thought, "hey, a game about white trash beer!". Turns out I was half right. It's a game about a white trash sport, Professional Bull Riding.

Actually, it's not even about bull riding. You shoot little plastic riders from what can only be described as a "bull-a-pult" and try to get them through the target holes in a scoring board. Seriously, who comes up with this stuff?

If it wasn't for the theme, I might've seriously considered picking this thing up. Hell, it only has 4 pix in the database, so I still might. But I doubt it.

Another one that caught my eye, but ended up being a stinker. For a second I thought I'd found Race for the White House or 1960: The Making of the President, but clearly I had not. A game that uses pushpins and calls them "pointed pawns" is probably not a game to buy. Looks like a case of great idea, poor implementation.

Mille Bournes -- 1971 edition, looked like it was in tip-top shape. $1.50 at my local GW. Passed it up because I only had $3 on me, and there were two other items I wanted more ( a large Discovery Toys gear set for $2, and a copy of Farb Karussell that I wanted to try out ).

Should I go back for it?

Yeah I saw this one, cover looked interesting
than I saw the mooks on the back

They totally turned me off to the game
and add that to the obvious quasi-monopoly rip off look of the board
I thought, "Meh"
so I left it.
It was only $1...

"The NIV Game"

I live in a pretty religious area, so lots of small-run Bible trivia games float through our shops. I don't bother listing most of these, but one struck my eye this week that was just like... "huH?"

"The NIV Game" -- this isn't just a Bible trivia game. It's an NIV trivia game, centered around this particular modern translation. It even proudly advertises that inside the box is included a copy of... wait for it... an actual NIV copy of the Bible.

So yeah -- I don't know anything more about this game, but it was definitely a bit odd for me to see a game centered not around the holy book, but around a particular publisher's particular translation of this book. It just struck me as... really shameless profiteering. But hey -- the NIV is sortof known for its rather strict pricing requirements when referencing it, so the idea of rank marketing for this specific translation shouldn't be all that surprising to me.

Now that I think about it, I'm almost curious to know if Zondervan (the owners of the NIV) put this out themselves, or if this was just done by a really really rabid fan of the NIV. No doubt it will still be on the shelf when I go back to Goodwill -- I might try to find out more about it just for morbid curiosity's sake. I couldn't find any other references to this game online.

I have no idea what the gameplay is like. Do the trivia questions consist of accurately quoting from the NIV (and shun shun shunning the heretical King James?) -- does it involve dates regarding the release dates or adoption statistics for this transation? What size font it uses? I have no idea.

This one's been sitting on the shelf at my local GW for a couple of weeks. It's in reasonable condition and looks complete -- I guess I'm not much of a collector, and would rather get fun games.

I should have bought this one, too. A sure winner of the Thrift Store WTF Find of the Week, if I had.

But I knew that once I had it home, it would just sit there, daring me to throw it out.

Saw a nice looking box of Dizzy Dizzy Dinosaur sitting on the shelf today. "That looks fun for the kids!" I thought and picked it up -- WOW it was heavy! "I bet this is complete!" -- opened it up, and while the cavemen and game board were there, there was no windup dinosaur -- the part adding so much weight was an entire sheaf of children's drawings on construction paper.

A truly beautiful collection (nearly an inch thick!), but sadly not what I was hoping to find. Back on the shelf it went.
