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.

$3.99 at GW. Haven't heard of this before but looks like it's a keeper. Even made Tom Vasel's top 100 so that's a good thing. I'd probably have to pimp out those cheap looking dragon and tent markers before considering playing it though.
What's this? THE FASCINATING GAME OF THE COMPUTER AGE YET A CHILD CAN PLAY AND WIN! Hm. £1.99, Oxfam, Penrith. Cards, board and tiles all present and in good nick, although the box insert pictured is missing.
I've been enjoying Memoir '44 a lot recently and started considering branching out into some of the other games in the Commands and Colors line. Battlelore caught my attention so I began trying to hunt down a copy. I found most people's marketplace asking price or Buy it Now prices to be well over what auctions were actually ending at so I started keeping an eye on ebay. Then I got lucky, I checked to see if there were any listings under "Battle lore" instead of "Battlelore" and there one was. No pictures and he was unsure about the completeness of it all but after a couple questions I decided to take a chance.
Battlelore Battlelore Battlelore: Hundred Years War Battlelore: Goblin Marauders Battlelore: Dwarven Battalion Battlelore: Hill Giant Battlelore: Hill Giant Battlelore: Earth Elemental All for $100
I've almost completed inventory (holy crap that was a lot of stuff), all that's left is to check banners. No original packaging on the expansions, but that's no big deal to me. Missing 9 Light Dwarf Infantry, but somehow have 4 extra Goblin infantry.
