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.

There was an auction here at BGG several weeks ago, and 2 AH games were getting no love. I got them both for the minimum bid of $1 each. Since the seller lived somewhat in the area, I waited until I had some other business near him and them picked them up on Sunday, saving shipping.

The box is well worn, and there was some sticker ripped off the front leaving a 2x3 inch white space. The components are in good shape, although there are a few armies missing. I have never played a game that used all of a person's armies.

This has already gone to my son as a birthday gift, to help fuel his growing appreciation of board games.

The box is well worn with 2 blown corners. I have not yet done a complete inventory of all the chits, but it looks to have enough, and all the other components are there.
