Here is a list of my rescued treasures from around the Muskegon area in the past month.
I love going to thrift stores to find board games. Here are the latest additions to the Muskegon Area Gamers’ library.
1. Axis and Allies
I found this for $4. It is complete and in well-cared for condition. The clerk was chatting me up because her husband had been looking for this game for some time. Their family enjoys board games. Note to self: I need to make some business cards so I can hand them out to people!
2. Star Wars: Epic Duels
This was a really lucky find! For $2 in Grand Haven, I found Star Wars Epic Duels. The board is missing so I will have to find someone who has a copy. But once complete, this game goes for quite a bit of money.
3. Can’t Stop
I usually cannot turn down a copy of Can’t Stop; I literally can’t stop myself. Plus, Mongo needed a copy. I found a copy in good shape in Hudsonville, MI.
I found Parker Brothers’ charming Quicksand complete and in good condition this month. I think this will be a good addition to the family/children offerings at the Gaming Annex in Muskegon.
5. Stocks & Bonds
I found a rare Avalon Hill version of Stocks & Bonds. The 3M version is common enough but I don’t think I ever saw the AH version. Until now. $.99
What did I find right next to Stocks & Bonds? You guessed it! Avalon Hill’s Acquire. Complete for $.99. I love thrifting!
7. Ticket to Ride: Europe (Days of Wonder)
I found two copies still in shrink wrap for $15 each! I was amazed!
