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.

Then while I was looking over the rest of the crap I spotted this, had to take a double take then a triple take. No price on it so I asked how much from the guy adding more crappy books to the pile. He took it from my hands and before I could stop him he whipped out his grease pencil and wrote $1.50 on the box. He saw the look of horror on my face and said it will rub off (my look of horror or the grease pencil?). anyway, the box was is very worn and when I got it home I found it was missing two cards and someone had taped the board sections together, but I couldn't let this one wither on the thrift store shelves.

$6.95, also at SA, and in fact the reason I went there. Thanks for the heads-up, Patrick!

The box is scuffed up, but the game is complete and was on my wishlist. 1964 copyright from 3M.

But as Pat said to me, what's with the higher prices at the thrifts? Did the economy suddenly get better for everyone but us? I just don't get it.

Sackson! Found this non-special edition Discovery Toys version at the Sheridan Salvation Army today for $2.50.

Unplayed, with gems and cards still wrapped. Unfortunately, it is lacking the rules and the color die, but the internet has already yielded the first of these and the die is easy enough to make.

There was also an aMAZEing Labyrinth at the same location, but a quick inventory showed too many pawns/tokens to be missing. I saw a few Blokuses at the Sheridan Unique and the Clark Village Discount Outlet, but passed as I have a nice copy already.

Not this game, but another Goren-endorsed Bridge tutor system unlike any other I've seen.

It's called Bridgeveryone, and it's copyright 1969. There seems to be very little about it on the web. Here's an ad from the July 1972 Rotarian magazine with some information:


And a one-page Popular Science article from 1969:
PopSci Article

This copy is near mint, unplayed. The cards and mechanism (which is a very clever four-way take on the old pin-card sorting systems) have been fiddled with a bit, but the manuals and special cards are unused.

This is definitely a rare gem, and one of my favorite thrift finds of all time. $3.95 @ SA.

The one with the circular castle pieces that you have to insert cardboard into rather than the flat pre-printed plastic playing pieces. Unpunched. $3.99 at Value Village. Likely will keep it to play with my son as my old Stratego set is missing a piece or two.

After my good run at Border's clearance sale last month I figured I'd used up all my thrift luck for a while. But on my weekly stop at GW the thrift gods smiled on me again.

I was seeing the same old stuff as always, and was already out of there in my head when I checked the last shelf unit of toys. There underneath a Jurrasic Park game was a Battle Masters box in good shape! I whipped it out from underneath and slit the tape with my keys hoping it wasn't filled with old Risk pieces. Whoo-Hoo! I see the plastic map right away (which alone I would have gotten it for) and tons of plastic plus the tower walls. Ran up, bought it and left. At home, inventory is perfect. It's all there, and now I have TWO Battle Masters sets to play with for holiday gaming this weekend.

Total cost: $5
