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™, the Tape Monkeys™, and any other embellishments in order to make it even more interesting.
The Weekly Thrift List Wayback Machine The Grand Vizier is maintaining a list of all the weekly thrift lists through time, and will be adding stats and interesting tidbits for each week. Your Thrift Store Bargain Finds Through Time

I'll admit I bought this game for it's customized die. If the die was all I wanted, I should have checked for it in the store. When got home and inventoried the game, the die and one of the cards is missing.

Even a man who is pure in heart and says his prayers by night may become a wolf when the wolfbane blooms and the autumn moon is bright.
Rule book only. $5 from Half-Price on north Lamar (Austin, TX).
I've been fixating on this game for the last few weeks or so, downloading the tiles, lusting at Hirst Arts for 3-D molds, re-reading threads and even purchased the Descent-Warhammer Quest Cards from another Geek earlier today. I walk into Half-Price with the game on my mind, thinking about geek auctioning some of my games to make enough to overpay for it on eBay and there's the rule book. Is it a sign from Above? Coincidence? Only the Shadow knows!
Scotland yard - 3.99 SA (looks complete, but I have a bunch of tokens to count)
Edit: not quite complete, unfortunately. Short 1 underground token, 3 taxi tokens and 4 bus tokens. I do, however, still have the visor I didn't realize came with the game, and I have an extra blank token and an extra pawn (ALUTI).
