Picked this up at my Goodwill store for $4.27 with tax. It is in very nice shape with only one Confederate infantry soldier missing. The board and components look barely used and the box only show minor wear with one small rip at the edge. I rarely find anything near this cool and it was within my five dollar weekly thrift budget. A great find for me.


Edit: I posted a photo in my personal gallery to show what a nice find it was for $4.27

And finally (BGG got really slow, so this may not follow my other posts), I picked up this memory game. I had seen it at thrift stores in the past and never looked into it. But seeing that it's merely a memory boardgame, I figure I can get one or two plays out of it with the kids.

$2, I think, for this version, complete and in pretty good condition. It has a nifty drawer that slides out and holds the pieces. Don't know if I'll play it--I have another edition of this as well--and am certainly willing to trade it.

I haven't had much thrifting time lately, with some work responsibilities sucking up all my "free" time.

I have a boxed, AH version with damaged horses and some missing components. This one is the 3M longbox version and is complete and in very nice shape, barely used, with no broken horsies!

Again, I don't know if I'll play it, but it's always good to see one of those old 3M boxes. Makes me all twitchy inside. It was $3. I've probably seen all of these old guys with the long boxes (Win, Place & Show--Thinking Man's Golf--Thinking Man's Football--etc.) three or four times each, and I always buy them unless they're just beaten to Hell or priced absurdly high. I can't seem to resist.

I almost didn't see this. Or rather, I saw the end of it sticking out (barely) from underneath some piece of crap and thought it was more crap. But in the interest of thoroughness, I checked anyway, and there it was.

$2 at goodwill

Looks to be complete, and it was the French/English bilingual edition. Even the map is in both languages!

Will trade or put up on Amazon marketplace.

EDIT: Replaced with the new image. Apparently no one had posted images of the Canadian Bilingual edition of this game. My first GG ever!

If anyone is interested...I don't expect it's valuable, but it does have four of those card racks (holds up to regular size playing cards) and a lot of numbered chips in four colors. Probably a good accessory for any number of games. Spent about $1 on it.

EDIT: I looked at these more carefully and the slots are for smaller cards. Standard-sized playing cards would not fit.

Sri Lanka for 4.50€, two Ceylonese "hunting" games in one: Cows and Leopards and Sixteen Soldiers. Published in 1975 by Altenburger and Stralsunder Spielkarten-fabriken but I don't know how rare it is, if at all. Box a bit damaged as the image shows.

Uses the same board for both games, varying the number of figures. Nice wooden components, uploaded these images of the game to BGG:

Out in the SLC region for business. I decide that Tuesday will be my thrifting day (since the DI are closed on Sun and close early on Mon.)

Here is my route & my finds.
Layton Savers - nothing, but they have placed the games on a high shelf near the books and away from the toys/luggage deathtrap where they were. The manager was talking to some folks about sales in the store. I stopped and commented on how nicely they are taking care of their games. He noticed I didn't buy anything to which I reply, "I have in the past & I'm sure I will in the future." Everyone smiles.

Layton DI - Nada

The big trek begins. I'm heading south!

Welfare Square DI - Nothing
Downtown DI - zilch and get out just before they close at 7
Decide to make the huge lunge and work my way back. Sugartown is too far east. I hop on the highway

Murray DI - nothing
Sandy DI - There is a woman grabbing everything she can stuff into a cart. I scan her cart & luckily nothing good is in there. Wait! I see two copies of Husker DU on the shelf. I move to grab both of them but she nabs one first. The leftover is missing several pawns. I tell her that she'll probably want this for the extra pieces. That Husker Du version isn't bringing enough on ebay for me to fight over it. So I leave with nothing.
Taylorsville DI - NOTHING!!!!
Taylorsville Savers - I pick up this. Not sure that I will ever play it, but I should have it. 99 cents

I'm feeling pretty low. I haven't been sleeping well, I'm tired, I'm far from home, I've only found one game. So I grab this one. I can use the pawns. I doubt that I'll haul the whole thing home since I have to get everything into one suitcase (of which Delta charges $25 for a checked bag).

I am exhausted and head home back to the hotel in Layton. I can barely stay awake.

Hmm. High Bid? $1, okay, I'll take it.

This is from The Serenity House in Bremerton, Washington. I sometimes find decent games there. It is a large Navy base and I think the sailors often leave their games behind when they go to sea. This thrift store usually knows what they've got but often prices valuable games at about half the price of their going rate.

I bought this to be my ONE and only Risk game for $38.00. It is complete except for the black attack dice. They are the original dice but someone (probably a game imp) picked off all of the little numbers stickers and the dice were repainted sloppily with white dots where the markers had been. Anybody got an extra set of black dice for this game laying around?

a pristine Loopin Louie for $3!!! Oddly enough, several years ago I passed on a Loopin Louie at the Centerville DI because I knew not what I held in my hands. This one appeared to have never been opened.

Suitcase be damned!! I grab all four games and head to the counter. After I make my purchase (they are now closed) I ask if they have any boxes. They let me search through some in the back and now I have to get these packed up and ship them home to myself.

I look forward to heading to Ogden tonight to see what treasures await me there.

Yeah, Salt Lake!! ah'm in yur thriftzes, grabbin' yer gamez!!!

UPDATE: Closer inspection shows that this has been opened. I counting parts: Louie, counter balance weight, Barn, Barn, Barn, Barn, and...11 chickens. Hmm not bad. wait a minute. NO MOTOR!?!?!?!?!

This one was interesting. I found it at VV for $2.29. The label was stuck on the bottom over a grease pencil $1.91. It looks like someone got it at one thrift store and gave it to VV. The weird thing is that it's in stellar condition. The contents are untouched and still in shrink wrap. The box isn't in any sort of shrink but it's in excellent condition in contrast to the original 'Rebound' in a beat up box for $15.99. Must have had different people pricing on those days.
Anyway, I haven't tried the mechanism in this yet but it looks super cool.

No rules.

$3

The penguin paradigm changed for me after I saw Julie Andrews wearing a tuxedo in Victor, Victoria.
