Thrifting

I think it annoys my wife when we are traveling and I make us stop at every thrift store we see.  Certainly, to her the time spent in the stores and the amount of games found do not equate.  And I tend to agree.  Though it might surprise you when I tell you what brings me back.  I have found 4 copies of Settlers of Catan, 4 copies of Blokus, a copy of Zooloretto and 2 copies of Vegas Showdown.  BUT it is not these larger finds that bring me back (though I am more than happy to find them).  It is the small, unknown games that I enjoy.  I have found In Limbo designed by Michael Schacht, Dead Man’s Treasure by Reiner Knizia and Auf Achese: Das Kartenspiel by Wolfgang Kramer.  These are games that I might otherwise not know about – these are the hidden treasures – these are the finds that keep bringing me back.
