I love to see a big ol' box of gaming goodies sitting on the porch after a long day at work.
The whole RPGA thing passed me by back in my gaming youth, but I love to read old issues of Polyhedron. I grabbed about 8 issues. Within these issues, there are full adventures for AD&D, Gamma World, and even Paranoia! Score!
One of my favorite gaming mags was Cryptych and I was surprised to see a couple of back issues in the bargain bin. Snagged them for some retro reading this weekend. (Now to pick up those cheap back issues of Shadis...)
I was very surprised to see copies of West End Games' D6 Fantasy and D6 Space in the bargain bin. (Wish there had been a copy of D6 Adventure too.) When I pulled these out, I was stunned to see they were hardcopies...and brand new too! (And I paid 99 cents and $1.99 for these!)
Here's the coup de grace -- A copy of Road Kill Rally by Z-Man Games, brand new and shrinkwrapped. (Picture "Death Race 2000: The Board Game.") I also grabbed the Quackery card game as the description fascinated me.
And here's the punchline: The total cost of all of this? Less than $40....SHIPPED. Everything you see here was either 49 cents, 99 cents, or $1.99. The only item costing more was Road Kill Rally, and I got that for $15.59. There are still a LOT of great deals to be had, so I suggest you drop what you're doing and go shopping for great stuff cheap! (And leave the Shadis issues for me, would ya?)
