I think that all right-thinking people in this country are sick and tired of being told that ordinary, decent people are fed up in this country with being sick and tired. I’m certainly not, and I’m sick and tired of being told that I am.

Also found a really nice copy of this, again for $4.00 at Blessings Abound. I already have a copy, but this is in so much better condition I couldn't pass it up. Unfortunately, someone had slid the box into the slipcase with the bottom nested into the lid, so there is a possibility some of the bits may have leaked out. I will have to do a thorough inventory later.

I left behind a great-looking copy of Labyrinth. I already have a nice copy so I couldn't justify buying it, too. Also left three copies of "Veggiehead, a game about health and nutrition". I can't seem to find it in the database, so if someone wants to pick one up, they can add it and earn GG. (It's NOT part of the VeggieTales series.)

Savers - $1.49 (and they didn't even offer me the "you old look" discount my husband got the other night, so it's not me making him look old!)

Missing the letter "C" tile but I can either check the parts list, print up the whole alphabet on heavy card stock or maybe even ghoul some Scrabble tiles from a thrifty Scrabble game to replace them.

Definitely they've got some older gamer's collection in and are trickling it out onto the shelves mixed with the newer stuff. Keeping my eyes peeled for the rest of the 3M bookshelf games.

Do I really need to start a collection of 3M games? I'm a sucker for interesting design. I like stuff from the 60s, and some of the games seem interesting. But collecting all of them is silly, right? And the only one I have is Phlounder. Not really the basis to build a collection around. I'm not really into trivia games, and looking inside it's hard to tell if all the contents are intact. I probably should leave this for somebody else.

One dollar. OK. Why not.

Condition: Fair

Status: Definitely for sale/trade

Asking Price: $15

Comments:
This is the precursor to Scategories. I think it does it better in that players are guided to come up with their own categories. Also, the players work on all categories and letters at the same time. Scoring is done both per category and per letter. There are no silly "double letter" scores thus eliminating the inane arguments over "red refrigerator" not being a double "R".

Games played: 1
Game type: Trivia
Other games like it: Trivial Pursuit

I play this once a year at WBC. It’s just fun to do a late-night trivia event to refresh from hours and hours of boardgaming. I looked into the rules of this game not long ago, and it looks pretty different from the format we play at the tournament, but I think that’s okay. The tournament format enables dozens of people to play at once, and ultimately that’s more fun for a trivia game.

Pretty good condition for its age--light shelf wear, some price sticker residue on the box. Most of the original score pad is still intact.

Bought from the same person on the Close5 app. 1976 edition. Looks complete and was never played. Cards are still in shrink. Not really interested in this one, but I threw the guy a bone since he's a big Islanders fan. He offered this game and the next game together for $5.

1969 edition. Looks to be played (several sheets are missing), but this is extremely well taken care of! I would have thought it was unplayed had there not been sheets missing.

$4 at GW.
