This is the traditional monthly thrift and bargain finds list for video games.

These lists may start empty but as always: add your items.

Put in what you consider a bargain, tell us how much you paid and the place you got it from. Bargains can be thrift store finds or any second-hand purchases or discounted video games bought new.
Don't forget to add your encounters with the Thrift Store Irritant Squad and any other embellishments in order to make it even more interesting.

Last Months List:
Check out the quality and quantity of last month's loot.

You can't sneeze without seeing one of these at a thrift store, but I had been looking for one to use with the balance board I inherited. Had a fun few hours exploring the minigames with the kids. I'm also 25 pounds overweight according to the game

$2.95

$2.50 at SA.

Slightly dinged condition and the cover saw some water, but should play. Pew pew!

last this for $9. may hold onto this one as I haven't played a dragon quest game in a while. Really with they'd port these to vita or ps4, then i'd probably get around to them.

Looks like this one is sort of rare. Included all the extra "feelies" except the poster.

Was about to check out of Salvation Army with one record, and then I noticed a stack of about 10 NES cartridges behind the counter. I took a moment and found two.

$4.95, SA, cartridge only
