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.

Defender of the Grid! "I Fight for the Users!"
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.
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.
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!
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.
