During the holiday season I haven't had much time to read or post, but wanted to get my final finds into this year's stats.

I got this last week at Goodwill for 99 cents. In good shape and seems to be complete. After finding this, and receiving Super/Ultimate Mastermind as one of my excellent Thrifty Santa items (hi Santa!), I now have 4 of the main Mastermind variants, all in the classic editions.

Then this week at Goodwill I got this 1989 version of Aggravation for 99 cents. I think we might flood the market for these, but this one was complete with a box in very good condition, so I'll take a chance.

Merry 2012 everyone!

While not technically a thrift store, Half-Price Books does carry a small selection of board games. I landed some pretty awesome gift cards for Christmas, so I wandered in and what did I find but 3 3M Bookshelf Games! Sitting on the shelf were copies of Acquire, Point Of Law, and Feudal, $10 each.

They're all complete, but not in pristine condition. But really, who cares? I have a complete 3M Bookshelf copy of Acquire now!
