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.

There is absolutely no hope left for me. I actually got excited because I had yet be able to post anything on the thrift store/bargain finds" posts. For the most part, I had still been paying a pretty penny, or trading, for most of my games. Not anymore. I was estate saling last weekend, and came accross not 1, but 2 copies of this game at the same sale. And so me, being the gracious person that I am, liberated both copies, (for $1.50 each mind you), and now feel more complete! Is that sick? Josh
ps. I also found an original copy of Boggle for $1.50 at the sale, that had all its peices as well, so it came home with me. 3 games total, less then 5 bucks.
I'm way late to this week's party, but I've been on vacation and didn't have time to find the right entry for this game. It's the edition pictured, although I expected it to have its own entry—it was a time-consuming dig to find the one relevant picture in the gallery.
Anyway, the box contained all ten figures, but only one of the two maps and some of the markers; the rest was missing. So the store (Salvation Army) accepted my plea for a discount and knocked it to $1.99.
