This thread is for reporting results of the 8/4/07 Tanga Trash for STUs.

After participating in the infamous SI swimsuit edition of Tanga Trash last November, I vowed never to waste my money on Tanga Trash again. Then when I saw Saturday's special deal for Super Tanga Users was Tanga Trash, I thought, "Surely they don't won't to upset their STUs so maybe this one will be better." Better indeed!

Here is what I got for $7.43:

Hollywood Blockbuster
Quarto (travel edition)
Go
Gayla Windsock
Hasbro Paintball Trainer (see http://www.cheapsalesconsulting.com/product.php?printable=Y&... )
Picture of Magic Johnson

The Hollywood Blockbuster alone makes this a great deal, but I am also looking forward to trying Go.

My mouth was going to drop that you'd already received yours, when I saw where you were located.

Mine is still "preparing for shipping", so I'm wondering if I'll get leftovers from the Tangathon that's going on right now.

Keep clicking on your shipment status to see what FedEx says about it. At one point mine said "preparing for shipping" but the FedEx tracking said it was shipped and only a day away from my house.

Edit: I just checked my Tanga account and it still says my Tanga Trash is "preparing for shipping" even though it arrived at my home today.

Wow! How right you were. Mine arrived in Fort Worth today, so I should have it tomorrow.

Thanks for the tip.

The garbage man delivered my trash today as well.

Hollywood Blockbuster (already have it plus Traum Fabrik)
Bethumped the word game (looks interesting)
DragonBall Z CCG (Cell Saga, Villain Starter Deck)
Windsock
Flick-it, kick-it basketball, which I've already played with the kids
Paintball Trainer game (I have a plasma tv, so it won't work, but we'll bring it over to the grandparents' house for playing)

All in all, well worth the $6 or $7!

Wow. That Tanga Trash is awesome! I'm glad I got in on the STU Trash deal.

I wonder if anyone will get something really neat, like having one Tanga lottery winner or something.

Okay. I got:

Dream Factory (which I already got in previous Tanga trash, but I'm not complaining)
Palabra*
Upper Deck 100th Anniversary NY Yankees commemorative baseball card set
Windsock
Paintball Trainer
120 Kitchen Experiments kit

*Game is used and probably from somebody's collection. It's the blue deck, however, inside the lid is a handwritten note from Ed You that says "This is a thicker card from the correct production run." and there's a red 0 from the red deck taped to the inside. He hasn't been online since 2004, but I think it's funny that I now have an autograph.

Not bad for a buck + shipping.

No picture of Magic Johnson for me

But I did get the Flick It Kick It Basketball game!!!!

And I got some other stuff:

Hollywood Blockbuster
Risk 2210 AD
Heroes of Might & Magic IV Collectible Card & Tile game
Dragon Ball Z CCG Starter
TYLZ! (a magnetic Tetris like puzzley game)
Paintball Trainer Plug & Play TV game
an airship Windsock

Tanga must love me


I'm sure Tanga is trying to make an impression & encourage others to become STUs. . So I don't think we can expect this from every STU offer.

Tanga really went above & beyond with this special offer. THANK YOU TANGA!!!

I got:

Hollywood Blockbuster (have a few copies)
Grand Tribunal game (don't know much about it)
Tangoes (these were sold on Tanga over the last Tangathon)
Wind sock
Paintball trainer

Not bad at all. I'd say that was a great haul for a few bucks, but then I had to pay more than a few bucks in purchases before getting to the STU level...

Just got my Tanga Trash, and I have to say it's THE BEST TANGA TRASH EVER!

I got:

a windsock (will provide hours of entertainment for the cats, I think)
Paintball Trainer (trade and/or prize table fodder)
The Jeu Kakuro game (smashed all to hell and not listed here on BGG, but trade and/or prize table fodder)
Dragon Ball Z CCG Villain Starter Deck (trade and/or prize table fodder)
Hollywood Blockbuster (I already have it, so more trade and/or prize table fodder)

and, at the bottom of the box, making the whole thing weigh a ton and a half, a set of 300 poker chips in a really nice carrying case. Something I never would have bought for myself (since I really don't need them), but have been wanting for quite a while.

Got mine today, box was beat to pieces, the bottom was almost ripped out. Actually upon closer look at the box, the whole end had been busted out and then taped back up. Man I hate Fedex.



Paintball Trainer
Anagramania Junior Edition
Hollywood Blockbuster
Heroes of Might and Magic card game, opened and missing one token.

Hollywood Blockbuster
Deluxe poker set

Wind sock
Wooden Mosaic IQ puzzle

I'm not going to complain for $6. Hollywood Blockbuster will go up in the next math trade, and I'll see what I can get for the poker set on eBay.

Some stores like Target and Wal-mart may give you in-store credit for unopened toys.

For example, I got $20 store credit at Target for my Paintball Trainer. That alone more than covered my cost for Tanga Trash.
