I'm told this one sells ... if it's in shrink.... this one is basically in shrink though... the bits are still in plastic and the cards are still in order.

$0.25, complete
Monroeville Flea Market.

This is actually a Dollar Store version called "Twelve Monkeys in a Barrel," not what is pictured. And to stay with the theme of getting as close to the IP as possible without stepping on it, the pieces appear to be clowns (not, sadly, Bruce Willis). I had the original in my hands to buy new just last week and decided to wait, so I was glad to find this one for just a quarter.

Also found the components of this game (the pyramids and blue clear dice) for 1.00 in a baggie with a bamboo 3-D puzzle.

It's missing the rest of the game but I really only wanted it for the nice parts.

Being a child in the 80's and a little bit of a couch potato during that time I picked this up for nostalgic value. Paid $1.00 for it at GW. There was a time when I loved trivia games, but they are further down on my list nowadays.

Before any of you start hating on me I spent all week visiting the same thrift store before I found this. And the only reason I was able to do that was because my daughter was taking a camp in the area and I had to drop her off and pick her up every day!

Oh yeah, $2.82!

Never heard of it. But is a spy/investigator game which tend to be popular for those who collect those games so it might be trade bait.

$3.00.

I don't normally brag about my thrift findings, but I got all tingly inside when I found this at the Half-Priced Books in Spring this weekend. Granted, I paid $30 for it, and the box has seen better days, but the contents inside were in excellent shape and when I took extensive inventory, I found the *only* thing missing were a few wound counters. Every board, card and figure was inside!

I already have a sealed set that I don't let the boys touch no matter HOW MUCH they BEG me. They are huge Star Wars fans. Now I have a copy to trick out and let them play with. They are all old enough to have a little respect for the games now.

$4 at Goodwill. All the cards were still wrapped up in the packaging. It felt like stealing! arrrh

Of course, I had to go and buy about $13 worth of sleeves at my FLGS right after, but I can't complain.
