Leaving work today, I was going to head straight home. I wasn't going to stop today. Nope, not at all...but then I thought "What the heck, vary the Monday routine!" So I stopped in at Salvation Army.
Thanks to this list, I knew I had found a potential source of dice for Chunky Fighters and RoboDerby: Express. This was one time I didn't mind a box having some tape on it, as this one was overflowing with bits....
And just one aisle over was this - with all five YELLOW dice! I have found plenty of dice in other colors, but this is the first set of yellow I have actually found (got some as part of a trade awhile back with

$10 Armoury Games Pickerington, OH
Armoury Games is going out of business. I saw a post on craigslist stating as such. I had never been (otherside of town from me) but figured there was not better time than now.
I saw this in the "used game section". It seems to have rave reviews here on the geek. It is unpunched. I don't know if this ever was really even played. It is the professional version. The chip board boards are both badly warped. I have my old campbell biology textbook and the complete works of Shakespeare sitting on top of them know. we will see how that does.
I also picked up a chessex portable dice boot for $5 (%75 off sticker) for a buddy and the Wings of War: Top Fighters booster pack for $9.35 (%20 off sticker). I know WoW:TF wasn't much a deal (didn't list it seperate), but they place was going out of business (I feel for them) and at least made out better than I would most places with shipping, right?
Not exactly a thrift find. $35 plus shipping off a BGG auction. Still in shrink. Absolutely couldn't resist this one. Buffy is a favorite show in my house and we just saw some of the main actors at Emerald City Comicon.
