Ah, pull up a chair and sit down, my child. I will tell you the legend of the man who visited twenty-five thrift shops in one day (nine hours) on Thursday, October 7th, 2010. No, he was not a Colossus or an Übermensch, just a hearty, crazy man with too much time on his hands and too much thriftlust in his heart. His journey was arduous (over 160 miles), his eyes were heavy from multiple viewings of The Ungame, his bottom sore from so much driving, his hands lightly coated with shelf dust, and his nose choked with the faint smell of must. The word 'hero' is used too often nowadays, but it seems too weak to describe our intrepid adventurer.

Alright, alright, enough of the histrionics. I won't lie to you: I was hoping this trip would net me a shrink-wrapped Power Grid for 10¢ (or something like that) and it didn't happen -- but I did find some good things and I had some fun. However, I'm so sick of the inside of thrift shops now that I may have to take a break for a little while. We’ll see.

I am going to post the games I acquired on the regular thrift list too, but I wanted to share with you all my thrifting adventure. Let me know your thoughts. Here is what actually happened...

1. Board Game: Pay Day [Average Rating:4.67 Overall Rank:11032]

Well, I drove about 30 miles and arrived at my first destination right at 9 o'clock -- in time to see the 'open' sign go up in the Salvation Army (store #1). Pretty grungy, even by Sally Ann standards. However, there was an old copy of PayDay there (version shown) and I wanted it to improve the state of my copy at home. I know, it's a stupid game but I have fond childhood memories of it and it's fun for kids. The price tag of $1 was perfectly reasonable, but it was 'red tag' day and all red tags were 25¢. Excellent! I certainly hoped that PayDay was going to be the theme for the day.

As it turned out, PayDay was the first and last Sally Ann purchase of the day. Next stop: Value Village (store #2) another 2 miles down the road. It was a well stocked store, but it was full of Cheers and Hannah Montana games. Instead, I continued the 'childhood memories' theme by picking up Uno’s 30 Year Anniversary Edition. Complete and in lovely condition for $2.99. I was pleased, but hoping it wasn't going to be only games from my childhood.

At the same ValVil just mentioned, there was a copy of All the King's Men (I thought long and hard on that one), but I just couldn't get excited about it and I left it behind. I kind of regret it now. Looked kind of cool. Oh well, no sense crying over spilled chess pieces. Onward and upward...

Another 2½ miles and my first ever visit to Goodwill (store #3) produced -- sorry -- another game from my childhood (version shown here). What? Another Mille Bornes? I’ve only got about a thousand copies. But you know me, I always give 'thumbs up' to Mille Bornes and I like to pass it on to other people. The trend was alarming, but it was in perfect condition and, for $1.99, I thought, 'Why not?'

Gosh, the trees are beautiful but this driving thing is getting a bit much. 30 more miles and on to another Goodwill (store #4). By this point, I'm fearing Candyland is just around the corner (I did see lots of those, by the way). Instead, I found a game which is much further away from Candyland: namely, Mutant Chronicles for $3.99. That was fine, but I was beginning to understand how absurdly lucky it is for people to find an unpunched Le Havre (or whatever) for $1. No signs of that kind of luck for me yet.

The next Value Village (store #5) was only ½ mile away and I'm beginning to feel as though things could be looking up. Not to mention feeling a bit hungry, but never mind. Football Strategy was the next find and, being a sucker for any and all Avalon Hill/3M etc. bookshelf games, I had to snap it up. The price was good at $1.99 but what about the contents? Would the stupid football even be there? Yes! Practically untouched on the inside. Lovely. Maybe things are looking up.

Keep on keeping on for 30 more miles. Yet another Goodwill (store #8) provided a very large selection of mostly-pathetic games and innumerable screaming kids. I'm serious. These children were appalling. Frankly, it is experiences like that that make me thankful for my own children. Furthermore, amidst the shouting horrors, was the Iron Chef game in shrink-wrap for $4.99. I'm sure the game is idiotic but I loved the original TV show and I have a friend who will appreciate its idiocy.

Again, not the game, I just mean nothing. Back on the highway for 8 more miles and I experienced my first Goodwill (store #10) strike-out. I have completed my first decade of stores and I'm still wondering, 'Where is my untouched copy of War of the Ring Collectors' Edition is for 25¢?' Definitely not here. Again, lots and lots of games, but nothing to be bought unless you love CSI and Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader. Honestly, this trip is causing me to wonder whether I am actually smarter than a fifth grader.

Hmm. Driving for 2½ more miles produces a Value Village (store #11) and desperation is beginning to set in. I picked up Roll & Score Poker just to be able to say that I picked up something (I also kind of liked the dice). But honestly, dice for poker? Oh yeah, just in case it's too hard to acquire a pack of cards. Things are looking grim.

My grip on the wheel of my car is beginning to tighten as I wrestle with my frustration. Another 2½ miles, another Goodwill (store #12), another strike-out. Now I'm really getting hungry. The thought of chewing on a copy of Horseopoly or Clue is really sounding good. And I'm sick and tired of white-trash mothers looking at me with contempt for shoving their stupid kids out of the way. Time for some greasy, grotty lunch.

Lunch may have just saved me! Driving the 5½ miles to the next Value Village (store #13) has proved fruitful. A Reiner Knizia game about Lord of the Rings for $4.99 -- and it's brand new, not in shrink but the pieces are all unpunched and the palantir is still there. Phew. Not the greatest find, but certainly good enough. This is the first Knizia game I've ever owned and I'm sure you'll all tell me that this isn't the one to get, but thrifters can't be choosers. Glad I had lunch, but there's more...

Heavy game too. There seem to be mixed feelings on this game from many BGG users, but it strikes me as a game I might like and for $3.99 -- who's going to complain? Not me.

Isn't great when multiple thrift shops are next to each other? In this case, the St Vincent de Paul thrift shop (store #14) was next door to the ValVil above. Not too much here, but that's okay because (just like Mille Bornes) I always give 'thumbs up' to Waterworks. I aim to promote the Waterworks cult whenever I can. Who can resist those lime green cards? $1.99. By the way, whatever happened to 99¢ for card games like this?

Oh, by the way, please spare a thought for the poor staff person who had to clean up all those cards. Seriously, there must have been about 500 around.

Tragically, I forgot to check the box and it is missing the game board. I'm usually very good about checking everything, but a momentary lapse has cost me dearly.

Okay, so this isn't 3M but it's still a bookshelf-type game. I found Invasion:Earth next to Quinto at the Goodwill above. Box is a bit beat up and has tape wrapped around it (hairdryer anyone?), but the inside was great. Most of the chits are unpunched and looks complete. This was also $3.99. Maybe I'll make a 'Bookshelf Game' lot for the next Games for GeekGold lottery. We'll see.

Two Knizia games in one day. I know they're not the 'big ones', but better than nothing. This Loot was found next to Sherlock at the same ValVil mentioned above.

By the way, I mentioned rough neighbourhoods earlier. Well, that neighbourhood was like the Court of Versailles compared to this part of town. Where's a semi-automatic when you need one?

Another 5 miles to a different Value Village (store #19) and I need to answer the call of nature. Put that on hold for a moment, as there are more 3M games to be had. This time it's High Bid and it is found amidst a Russian family arguing over which version of Monopoly they wanted to buy. At least I'm not in competition with them. High Bid is in fine shape, complete, and a mere $1.99. Keep going.

Inevitably, right next to High Bid at the same ValVil was 3M's Stocks and Bonds. Climbing over the Russian family, I managed to snag it. Basically the same state as High Bid: fine shape, complete, and $1.99. At the check-out, a woman-of-a-certain-age behind me in line looked at the two games I was buying and said, 'Oh, those look pretty old'. I nodded and replied, 'Yes, they are.
