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.

My girlfriend has a cousin that found out I like to thrift games so she asked me to keep an eye out for this one. Well I found one in really poor shape but for 1.25 at a hospital thrift could not pass it up.

said you weren't really a thrifter if you haven't found an Acquire, and I've cried myself to sleep every night since. Well, today I found my first Acquire. I held my breath, hoping for wood tiles, but saw black plastic. Still, very nice condition, and a happy find for $1.99, Rochester Savers.

I planned to trade this or help out people on the parts list, but Sam has claimed the fun castle bits. I wonder if this was the same one we saw at the yardsale over the summer, and it got donated. $1.99, Rochester Savers.

I left behind some playdoh games that might sell well, but that I didn't really want to deal with at the moment - Splat, Grape Escape. I also left behind a MB Scotland yard and a Discovery Toys edition of Bazaar. Nothing of interest at the GW - a Simpsons: Don't Panic game in shrink, but marked $9.99.

$2.50 at GW. Everything was there but the buzzer had kicked the bucket.
There were still 2 batteries in there and there was so much battery corrosion that it looked like it had just been recovered from the Titanic.

$3.00 Brigham City UT DI.
Missing a few wound markers and one wing of the dragon. I guess I just have a wyrm dragon instead of a drake.
