As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you, now remain in my love. You did not choose me, but I chose you, and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit, fruit that will last. -- Jesus Christ
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.
Our GeekGuild: Welcome to The Ancient and Loyal Order of Thrifters. Enter the halls of thriftdom at your own risk. Please do mind the stacks of prized games, do not mention the musty smell and try not to sneeze. Make sure to bow before our king: Belial I.
The Order's Anthem: Sing along with our good old thrifty theme song...
A Knizia for $3.99? Oh ya. Goodwill. One pack of cards is opened but the rest in in shrink and unpunched. The tape monkeys wrapped it in packing tape but I shoul dbe able to get it off with a hair dryer.
Nice 1961/62 edition with plastic pieces for a Christmas gift of "Baby Boomer" games for a 50 year old and his family. Complete and in excellent condition. $5.95 @ Unique. Is anyone else noticing an uptick in thrift prices for the Holiday season? Unique is hitting it pretty hard.
And by the way, for a second year in a row I missed out on a 1963 Fine Edition Stratego with wooden pieces on that auction site. I hope it went to one of us. Maybe next year will be my year...
I saw a woman going through a cart, and she lifted a book to expose this. I hovered around until she walked off and grabbed it up. Like new, complete. Looking forward to playing this with the GF. Not thrilled that I will end up playing with purple, as she likes orange.
Has 2 copies of the rules sheet, if anyone wants one.
While doing inventory on other games, the wonderful young lady stocking shelves came over and set this in front of me. The shrink has a tear, but is intact. Would have liked to see a couple digits lower on the sticker price, but this was a buy. I will probably end up playing it sober with my nephews and not-so-sober with my older buddies.
