Yesterday, the family had a yard sale. Neighbors had put together a big one for themselves and put an add in the paper, then invited anyone else on the street to participate. We threw some stuff we no longer needed on a folding table and set it up in our driveway.
What's this all have to do with gaming? I've never really shopped yard sales, but have this dream that I'll wander into one and find some gaming gems -- the original printing of City State of the Invincible Overlord at the bottom of a stack of Life Magazines from the 1970's. The closest I have ever come to this was finding a Moldvay 1981 Red Book in a hardware store in my hometown that also had some antiques tucked in a corner. I can imagine yard sale shopping can be fun; it's something like hunting for hidden treasure.
Has anyone nabbed a cool gaming item (or anything else fun and interesting) from a yard sale?
