What is thrifting?  Simply, it is scavenging thrift stores for games.  Games to play and games to salvage for their pieces – prototypes need pieces!

As I live in a small city by North American standards, good games are hard to come by in the thrift stores, though I have found the following:

  • Three copies of Settlers of Catan
  • Four copies of Scotland Yard – 3 different versions
  • One copy of Vegas Showdown
  • One copy of Sorry Sliders!

Other games I like to thrift for their parts are:

  • Straight Shooter – tons of dice (great to make your own copy of Liar’s Dice)
  • Advance to Boardwalk – have great stackable counter

If you like games and pass a thrift store, pop-in, you might find a treasure!
