I found one of these last week which had too many cannons and lots of red soldiers. Following up on my hunch that there would be some more boxes showing up with the rest of the set, I went back to the DAV and had my hunch substantiated. I'm assuming that once I inventory I'll have at least one complete set and most of a second.
in great shape on the inside. The box is better than many of the games I purchase, but I don't think the money has been touched and the daggers are all there. THIS is a game I can confidently introduce to my wife's parents as they are avid card players. $1.00.
Looks like this is the first time this has appeared on the thrift list. From 1983, a handheld electronic scrabble player/opponent. This one is in fantastic condition, with the box in pretty good shape, the big styrofoam blocks still around the unit, and lots of blank scorepads. Haven't tested it yet, but no corrosion in the battery area.
I can't quite remember if I knew this existed before seeing it today, or not.
Almost complete copy of Heroquest with box in decent shape. (someone likes ducttape)
A Value Village copy for a great price of $7.99. I don't get it... this can really go for a decent price and they charge the same for a semi-complete box of scrabble... ok, I'm done ranting now.
Anyways... just kinda got it before a lady picked it up who was looking for older kid friendly board games. I grabbed this, a box of Arcane Legion and one of Mini Penguin Pile-up (the latter two got put back for being incomplete and without miniatures)
