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.
The Weekly Thrift List Wayback Machine The Grand Vizier is maintaining a list of all the weekly thrift lists through time, and will be adding stats and interesting tidbits for each week. http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/48522

A friend asked me to pick up some Yahtzee components for him yesterday, so when I was out thrifting today I got two copies -- one in the shrink for $1 at a garage sale, and one that is opened (but looks complete) from GW for $0.75.
Was pleased with the other Powerpuff game that I found last week, so when I saw this one by the same designer, I picked it up. Looks in good condition, and while I made sure the player pieces are all there, I haven't yet counted the tiles or cards.
Picked this and Yahtzee up today at a Goodwill for ~$2 each.
TMNT seems to be missing two yellow tiles, two red tiles, a health token for Raphael and possibly a subway tile (The contents list says there should be three but I'm having trouble spotting the third subway entrance), other than that it appears to be complete and in good condition.
Went to the Silver Spring Value Village/Unique combo store, but didn't find anything for me. I did get Gobblet Junior for my friend to play with nephews and nieces - complete with a little shelf wear on the box. It makes a nice complement to the Gobblet I got him a couple weeks ago. Passed up a Break the Safe since I already have one. My daughter was thrilled because I found an in-shrink Leapster game for her. And I did pick up two shirts and a nice framed picture for myself so the trip wasn't a total loss! A Fortress America here, a RoboRally there and it's surprising how high my expectations can get!
