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 games bought new.

Last week's list:

The bundle also included a bunch of roleplaying games:
1) AD&D Dungeon Masters Adventure Log (1980) and
2) Dungeons and Dragons: Rules for Fantastic Medieval Role Playing Adventure Game Campaigns (1978)
3) Village Book Book 1 and Castles Book 1 both published by Judges Guild in 1978
4) The Men and Magic (1974), Monters and Treasure (1974), and Underworld and Wilderness Adventures (1974) books.
5) The Greyhawk (1976), Blackmoor (1975), Eldritch Wizardry (1976), and Gods, Demo-Gods, and Heroes (1976) Supplements
6) Chainmail rules for medieval miniatures (3rd ed)
7) Dungeons and Dragons Computer Fantasy Game

And the following Space Opera Books:
Space Opera Volume 1 and 2, Ground and Air Equipment, and Fasolt in Peril

I am not a big roleplayer, and I wonder if these books have any value? If anyone knows anything about this, could you geekmail me? Also, if anyone is interested in trading for these items contact me as well.

Opened but unplayed (card box is still sealed, pewter figures, One Ring, and pie pieces are still sealed). The only reason to get this is for the extremely cool figures, which are good enough to display on the shelf (which I just might do!).

$1.99 at Value Village.

$1.00 - Savers, Minneapolis. Complete except for the rules and badly taped, but everything else is in good shape.

Or at least that's what the picture seems to imply. Ah yes. I can feel it now...

Thrift store find for $1.00. Complete and in good shape. Fun game, but mainly got it for the nifty trays to help my seven year old enjoy other card based games.

I don't usually do the garage sales -- too high of an effort to return ratio for me, especially since you have to hit them on a Saturday morning. I swung by one today, though, that clearly had puzzle and game boxes out on a table, so I stopped. This is what I found, for $1(US) -- the box has one spot of tape damage but is otherwise pretty nice, and the game is complete. This game has a much more useful box insert than most of the other Ravensburger games I've picked up.

Now all I need are some variant rules to make to game play as nice as the art on the tiles.

1974 edition (as pictured)

Everything is here. In fact, whoever donated this to the church I bought it from was thoughtful enough to include the instructions to not only this game, but their Simon as well.

All cards, all scoresheets, all plastic trays. Everything is here. The box is in better shape and sturdier than nearly any other game I have, new or used.

50 cents, church bazaar in north Seattle.

1984 version. I believe it's 100% complete. I need to do a thorough count of the plastics but just looking over everything and sorting it seems that nothing is missing.

Oh, except the rules. Those are completely gone. And it looks like someone dropped a bowling ball on the box, corer ripped on both sides on upper right and naturally lays in the box.

50 cents, church bazaar in north Seattle.

UPDATE: Missing instructions (but they're available on BGG!, dice (pfft), and one catapult. However, it does have one extra short road and one extra calvary. Four catapults are broken, but the 'put' is still in the box for three. Three boats have their sails broken but they are all there, just need gluing.

1976 version.

Everything is here, and in most cases hasn't even been used. The record was obviously untouched. It looks like someone started to set this up, a few of the win and place slips are detached from the sheet, and then they gave up and just put it away.

100% complete, obviously. Small tear on bottom side of boxtop, and top end is taped to the bottom.

Found this one for $1 at Goodwill. Complete parts and in decent condition. My wife liked it as a kid, so I picked it up.

During the same trip to Goodwill I also got Hungry Hungry Hippos for my kids for $2. The box was slightly damaged, but it was still in its original shrink wrap. Unfortunately, I open the box to find a bunch of broken hippos. So into the trash it goes..

Saturday included a trip to the far west side of Portland. I spied several games of interest, but most of them were either missing too many pieces or too dented up to be of much eBait value. I decided on just this one, my third copy in the past year.

Goodwill: $1.99.

Found some games in a second-hand store last week.
This one was 1.50 Euros, looks like a nice game.

Stupid me didn't check the compinents too closely, though. Turns out that one plastic pawn/building is mising and all the play-money is gone.cry
Still playable for me.

196. Board Game: El Grande [Average Rating:7.77 Overall Rank:59]

Not quite a thrift find...
I was visiting the girlfriend's parents and helping her father out with trucking around some fenceposts, when my eyes caught something that looked very much like a gamebox on top of a neighbour's pile of bulk rubbish, put out for pick-up the next day.

Turns out it was a near-complete copy of EL Grande, with only three coloured cubes missing. The board is quite warped, though, and I believe I could have saved the boxlid from some serious water-damage had I noticed it earlier, before it had been exposed to rain.

I don't know whether I should be happy for haing such a keen boardgame-radar, or sad for going through other people's rubbish in search of good games.
