This is the traditional weekly thrift and bargain finds list.
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 boardgames 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.

. The total was $9.99 for both games plus $10 shipping, so $20 total or $10 w/shipping per game. I thought this game looked interesting and wanted it, so I thought it was a good deal. It's complete too.
Box had all the pieces, tokens and board was in great shape. It even had the cardboard insert that was missing out of my own copy. The top was a little dished and one corner is torn (now repaired with scotch tape).
I already have a copy, but tough to pass up this classic for only $1.
It is missing one green score card and one red score token, but otherwise everything else is there and in good shape. Again another game I already had a copy of, but tough to pass up for $1. I know some friends that will enjoy this with their young kids.
who was "Wanting" it. He only wanted the miniatures so I packaged them up and sent them off to him, and he sent me a copy of Blokus 3D. So yay for thrift find AND yay for BGG Trade tool that got me a copy of Blokus 3D for $1.50 + shipping cost of the miniatures.
Hi time to stop being a stealth thrifter and declare myself as an addict. Been after this one for a while so happy to see a nice wooden version. oxfam Arnold £2.99 missing 1 two by one in white but should be easy to proxy
Not nearly as nice as the case shown. Metal case with clear plastic top so you can see the contents. The chips are quite good though. Missing cards and dice but has 292 of what I would have gathered to be a 300 chip set. 94 White, 98 Red, and 50 each of Green and Blue. Cards and dice are easy to add, I have a set of Poker dice that will go nicely.
Stale pastry is hollow succor to a man who is bereft of ostrich.
I wish I had gotten to this earlier. Someone found a herscape lot including this expansion who didn't know what they had, took the minis (presumably to use as toys) and dumped the rest back in the bins. I salvaged about 40 pieces of terrain.
