I had a feeling I wasn't coming home gameless today. Found a newsagent that sells games upstairs and the brand new copy of Forbidden Island in the window was too much to resist!

Did find a copy of this game in a charity shop for £1.

Game is in nice condition, and complete. Version is as the picture, but in English. Pulled out the plastic insert and found an extra copy of the rulebook underneath, so if you need one, message me.

$20
yardsale

The seller claimed it was complete, and not having the patience to count the thousands of pieces on the spot I considered it at least playable at a cursory glance upon its innards. I thought it unlikely to be totally complete since nothing was bagged and the box was just a jumble of pieces and figures. Once I got it home I counted it all out and it was missing 1 red figure, but absolutely everything else is there!!! I'm pretty happy about that

This is definitely my bargain find of the year so far!

...what the heck?! How do these things even end up at Goodwill!?

$1. Complete, chits bagged, and oddly, 2 copies of the map! I'm still flabbergasted

EDIT: Also two copies of the rulebook! And 113 chits instead of 112. So someone must have combined two sets when they lost chits.

Stopped by today and dropped off THREE games. Gifts. No charge. He is obviously doing penance for finding so many gems at MY thrifts while leaving me dregs. He assures me that he has listed none of these on the thrift list, so that I may list them with impunity.

I believe this is merely a ploy to try to keep me from expressing my absolute loathing of him here on BGG. Needless to say, I remain guardedly cautious...I'M STILL WATCHING YOU PAT!!!

Anyway, first up is this lovely Abalone-like game with gorgeous big marbles, like new. It was on my wishlist, so it's very much appreciated.

Pat also gave me this lovely abstract from my wishlist, then apologized for the fact that two rhinos were missing horns, and one elephant has a broken trunk.

Following the wise old adage, "Never look a gift horse in the mouth," I sagely refrained from complaining about their condition until I held the game firmly in my grip. His downcast look was, I'm sure, the work of a master con, as were his chest-heaving sobs. I remained stoic.

I grabbed this from Pat's hands before his tears could stain the box lid. Turns out I needn't have worried, as this venerable TSR abstract is clad entirely in plastic. Crosse is completely new to me, and looks like an interesting and diverting game. It also exemplifies a rare excursion into abstract territory by the premier RPG company of its day.

My icy heart softed by Pat's seemingly friendly gesture, I barely shoved him at all as I bid him goodbye and on his way.

Technically, this is my daughter's find, but since she doesn't have an account, I'll have to post it for her.

I was in ARC with my 9yo looking at the games, when she spotted this. I saw that somebody had already opened up the tape on the box, so I figured we'd find that it was a gutted copy, like almost every other Lego game I've found while thrifting. Upon opening it, however, it looked fairly complete, including all of the microfigs and the Lego die. We haven't completed a full inventory of the game, but for $3.99, it's complete enough to warrant the price (and I'm sure the kids would probably be able to fill in any missing pieces from their own collection).

My favorite part was when my daughter looked at the box and exclaimed, "Reiner Knizia! Did he design this one, too, Mommy? Boy, he sure designs a lot of games!"

I think she might be hooked as a thrifter now. On the way home, she kept remarking that she couldn't believe that we only had to pay $4 for something that normally costs $30!

We left behind a copy of Race 3000. It probably would have been worth the $3.99 to pick it up for parts, but we already have the game.
