I got started early this morning...was able to hit up two Goodwill stores on my way to work (I literally pass two on my way to work - I merely have to pull into their parking lots...which means no extra gas used ever!).

This was my favorite find this morning. Inventoried and complete.

.99 @ Goodwill

Edited to add: I had to double check I had the right list...didn't realize I was first!

Metal tin version. I had this game years ago and my sister took a slew of my games to a friend's house...and then never brought them back (her and the friend stopped talking the next day lol).

I love Disney and I loved this game...had the sequel, as well. Hooray!

Had a couple of finds over the past couple of days. First was a copy of Bang.

The game is missing the "Calamity Jane" card so I contacted Mayfair. No luck since they don't distribute this game anymore. Then I contact DaVinci Games. Looks like they are going to send it out to me.

Next was a bag of Vampire/Jyhad cards. I played this back in high school and would love to get back into it. The bag had about 400 to 500 cards (including about 50 with the Jyhad name on them - the rest were Vampire) and one starter box.

10 dollars at GW. A little high but I've never seen them at GW (and I think of it as around 2 cents a card).

More CGC goodness. About 300 or so cards for around 7.00 at VV.

Looks like they are from all over the place. One bag was just mana cards (if that is what they are called). One group appeared to be from the 1994. A couple from 1996. Not sure what cards are good or not.

Also found a Spirograph. Old one from 1968. I seem to recall people saying they can go for a pretty penny. I'm going to try my luck (likely only to be disappointed by the Canadian board game selling market again).

Six decks just like the ones pictured. Great, I thought, must be the rest of the set that I picked up last week. Each deck though did not feel full. Oh, well. Still several decks though. They were sealed in a bag so they could not be looked at. I got them home and discovered that every single box had several copies of the instructions and check-off sheets from the starter decks. No cards at all. $5.99 down the drain. It went to a good cause though. ARC.

Sound effect:

Downward spiralling noise with a at the end of it

No, I didn't find this game - I'm using it as a suitable lead for the tale I am about to tell. Gather close, children...

I was taking a load of cardboard down to the local waste tip/recycling centre. In an attempt to be a good, upstanding citizen (something I usually fail at), I was putting the cardboard into the recycling skip, some 50 metres from the general "let's burn it and pollute the atmosphere" skip.

As I put the last of the cardboard in, out of the corner of my eye I saw a woman of certain years (that means around 50ish) carrying a large cardboard box to the "burn 'em and pollute" skip. It was quite heavy, and I started to stroll over to help. However, a local council lick-spittle put down his cup of tea, offered to take the box from her, and throw it into the skip of fiery doom.

It was a big box. A heavy box. And he rested it on the edge of the skip of certain destruction, and started to tip it.

And, children - this is the hard part - the box was full of games. Fine, noble games, that had survived many years and given great pleasure to many people.

I ran forward - seemingly in slow motion - actually yelling

STOOPPPPPPPPPPPPP


The lady of certain age stopped.
The council lick-spittle stopped.
The box teetered on the edge of the skip of certain destruction and -

FELL


I gazed down in horror into the abyss. The boxes had burst open and the contents scattered like fragile petals in the wind. Oh sure, there were everyday games - Monopoly, Cluedo and the like - but amongst the ruins lay the broken remains of:

Waddingtons Formula One
Waddingtons Railroader
Waddingtons Battle of The Little Big Horn (this is worth big bucks on e-bay in the UK)
Tri-Tactics
Escape From Colditz (!!)
KINGMAKER (!!!)

The skip was too deep to enter, the contents too scattered to retrieve. I turned away, stricken with grief.

The council lick-spittle patted me on the back. "Never mind squire. Just a few games, eh? Get some new ones for Christmas." I nodded, speechless... then paled as he continued:

"WE DO THIS TO GAMES EVERY DAY OF THE WEEK."

The lady of a certain age looked pityingly at me as I made my way back to my car.

"Were they valuable?" she asked.

I nodded dumbly.

"Oh good," she said. "They belonged to my ex-husband. He will be happy when he asks for them."

A true story.

The horror. The horror.

On a more cheery note, better hunting this week - started off badly, but improved.

First up, an unpleasant find. Yes, I was seduced by the box and the glossy cards. Everything complete and in splendid condition but! a dogs dinner of a game by all accounts. I will bide my time and wait for The Hobbit film to come out before trying to move it on.

All complete, charity shop, £1.50.

2.99 at VV. Box has a lot of packaging tape, will see if I can remove some of it.

Edit: All tape removed without much damage at all. So strange because it had tape wrapped 3 times over around all 4 box sides and up on to the box top and when I finally got it all off there were no tears or split corners or anything.

Are there people out there that tape their boxes for kicks? Was a tape monkey drunk on the job? who knows.
