50% off with coupon. I hope to get this to the table soon. If it as fun as I hope it is, I might try to get my hands on the 5-6 player expansion.

Heres where I need some help- This one has a working buzzer, board in nice shape, all 48 cards in ok shape- and nothing else. Obviously the pawns, dice & chips are no problem but can anyone hook me up with a scan of the rules? Got it for $2.99 once I pointed out it was missing a ton of stuff. They wanted $4.99!

I like the unusual and I have a soft spot for Jim Deacove's games; this ambitious design for a cooperative abstract strategy game has been on my want-to-play list since I first saw it on BGG. I hadn't been in a thrift store in weeks, so I was pleased to find an unpunched copy waiting for me this Saturday.

$3 at the Salvation Army in Victoria (Hillside & Quadra).

Stopped by GW on my way in this morning. They had this new and sealed for $4.99. I didn't want to pay that much so asked if they could reduce the price. He said it should have been $1.99 and adjusted the price.

I'll add some pictures of the box. Not sure if/when I'll open it.

Bought some games from ebay, 3 different auctions, all from the same seller. Local pickup, so no shipping costs.

This is the first one.

Complete, in very good condition, €3.08

Then Hanna Haselnuss.

Complete, like new, €4.

Already played with my 5 year-old son. He beat me 3 times, so obviously he likes it.

And last but not least.

Galaxia, box is a little dished, contents like new. Looks like it was never played.

€5

The game only has 4 images in its gallery, so I guess I'll upload some more.
