This list highlights only the best of the best. Think your find measures up? Think your thrift find has what it takes to go the distance? Well stay tuned and subscribe to this list and see. Of course there is monetary incentive for the winner of each week, in the form of GeekGold. All of this is brought to you by your friendly evil secret cabal.

From gallery of The Underwriter



The criteria for a winning find include (but are not limited to): the coolness of the find; how rare it is thrifted; game rank; game cost; production value; general rarity; and whatever other reasons the Secret Cabal decides to use. Feel free to add your comments, commendations, condemnations, et cetera -- although we hasten to add that our decisions are infallible.

One last thing, there will be a grand FOTW winner at the end of the year. That winner will be chosen by the Secret Cabal, but your comments and thumbs could influence the outcome. A much larger Geek Gold purse will be up for grabs.

Be sure to check out our previous lists:

January 1st to January 7th

What a great week to launch the first week of finds in 2018. Lots of great finds. The mouthpiece even thought he had a chance at back to back FOTWs until IT showed up. Still here are some of the best finds this week:

Civilization, Flames of War, Punct, Krosmaster, Santorini, Mission Red Planet, Camel Up, Panzer Leader, Sherlock Holmes, Oraklos, Escape Coldlitz, Source of the Nile, Twilight Struggle, BoraBora, WWII, Cash N Guns & Ricochet Robots.

This weeks winner is a great favorite of the Cabal and really is becoming more and more rare on these lists. While not complete, it still was complete enough to give:

January 15th to January 21st

It was a four way battle for first place this week (unusual) with any one of them walking away with the gold. But it turns out that a chess set once the top honors. More on that in a minute.

Some of the best finds (and there were a lot of them) included:

A Haba elephant game, Ascension, Sids Civ, Duel of Ages, Agricola, Robinson Crusoe, RFG, Biblies, Carc SW, Medina, Heroquest, Rail Baron, Gettysburg, Eldritch Horror, Time Stories, Thunder Road, Hotels, War on Terror, Bora Bora, Zoolettro, A different Haba elephant game, Blue Moon, Roma, Straightaway and a game I cannot read my own note on.

The four way battle came down to Robo Rally Armed & Dangerous, Civilization, Heroscape Underdark & a chess set. The Cabal awarded the gold to the chess set's owner:

The winner this week though is a but passe considering they just launched the fourth edition of the game, the but the sweeter expansion really makes this 25 pound (cost not weight but its probably close on both), extra special. The gold goes to:

February 19th to February 25th

It was one heck of a week for Grognards. War is hell but finding a bunch of wargames is not. It was also one of the longest lists of great games I have seen. Here are some of the choice finds:

Morels, Jumbo Sequence, SW Epic Duels, K2, Dvonn, Pirates on the High Seas, Pitch Car Mini, Starcraft, Carthage, Quarriors, A&A 1941, Stone Age, Evade, Talisman, Ra, Colosseum, Napoleonic Wars, Le Havre, Ace of Aces, Druid, MacGregor, X-WIng, Cry Havoc, Sagnami Island, THe Grizzled, Haggis, 007, Evolution and Space Alert.

Goldberg nailed it though. War in the Pacific is a great find and paying less than three bucks makes it all the sweeter. The gold goes to:
