Not much of anything in the thrifts lately. $1.99 for this today at Stuff West. Unwrapped but complete and unused. They even individually wrap the golf pencil in this thing! Weird.

En route to my monthly boardgames club I stopped off at Ilford to get my wife a couple more Christmas presents...looks like I also got myself a couple more presents too.

TkMax had one copy on display at the store's entrance, behind a copy of 'The Big Brain Academy Board Game'. £9.99, in-shrink.

Complete, $2.99. Another I thought had some resale value. Regardless, it was designed by Craig Van Ness of Heroscape fame, so I'm willing to keep it and see if I can't get it played.

Not a thrift store find per se, but my sister-in-law was cleaning out a room at her home and came upon a zip-lock bag filled with parts for her Carrom Board which she had given away years and years before. It's not a complete set but it tails into what few parts I had for the Carrom board I picked up earlier this year.

The interesting item, was that she still had the original rulebook in the bag along with the parts. Copyright 1971.

Okay, someone wrote on a September thrift list, putting it up in the active page, and I put my haul there. I'll repost here.

I walked into one of my favourite FLGSs here in Seattle (Berserk Games, as I was asked on the old list) and they have a big table of $5 games. Let me know which are the gems, okay games, and stinkers please!

Number one. $5.
