This is the traditional monthly thrift and bargain finds list for RPGs.

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 RPGs 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.

Last month's list:
Check out the quality and quantity of last month's loot.

$3.50 at McKay's Used Books in Nashville, TN.

It's in great shape and I have a lot of store credit there so I thought I'd get a spare copy. Also, with Jim Roslof's recent passing, it's been on my mind a lot.

$0.99 at The Great Escape in Nashville, TN.

Along with:
Fantasy Gamer (Issue 2 - Oct 1983)
Heroes (Volume 1, Number 3)
Heroes (Volume 1, Number 4)

There were also several issues of Alarums & Excursions there (also for 99 cents each) that I'll probably pick up if they're still there next time I go back.

I found this complete and unplayed game today at my local DAV for $2.98. The figures are uncut/unpunched.

In addition, the original BDalton's receipt was in the box. It was purchased in 1994 for $18.

Found at Value Village for $1.21. I already have it from when I bought it new in the 80s, but I couldn't pass it up at that price. Some wear on the binding and edges, but in pretty good shape.

Finally! I've been on the hunt for this for 6 months... always too pricey for a used copy (and new copies well over $100). I finally got a near mint copy complete for under $25 shipped. Woot!

Answered a CL ad, announcing first-come first-served. All of the stuff I'm posting was free.

Got this boxed set.

Sadly, missing one of the books

and this. I need to sort through these, I might have even more hidden inside these. Some of them are unpunched, cardwise.

$7.48 + $6.85 shpg. = $14.33 from the eBays. In like-new condition.

I own a LOT of GURPS books, so I have very few left on my wishlist. This makes one less.

It was very difficult to find a copy of GURPS Camelot at an affordable price.

Found a box of miniatures masquerading as Citadel Paint Set from the '80s. In addition to some Warhammer & Warhammer 40K figs, there were a number of really old school RAFM sculpts. (Mostly unpainted.)
