Deseret, $1.00. The kid has been enjoying these types of games, so I had gotten The Sorcerer's Cave and The Sorcerer's Cave Extension (at full market value, a reasonable deal I was happy with, but it was no thrift find,) and a few days later decided to splurge and get this one too. The same day I purchase this from a Geek at market value, I find it at a thrift store for a buck. I am not kidding, even my kid couldn't believe it.

Ha, ha. Thrift Gods. I get it.

Oh, and I left behind some Advanced D&D sets, (those were 5 bucks each!)
