Thrift Store Hauls: Dungeons & Dragons DVDs, Board Games, Signed Comics and More!

As I was sorting out some of the stuff I got at thrift stores recently I felt kind of sad that physical media like books, comic books, DVDs etc are being phased out. I will miss the collecting side of things and I will also miss the interesting little bonus items and freebies that are included. For example, I recently got two Dungeons & Dragons DVDs from a thrift store and they both come with a D&D campaign.

Dungeons & Dragons DVDs

The first movie simply called Dungeons & Dragons comes with a video game demo of Baldur’s Gate II and The Sewers of Sumdall D&D campaign which uses a very simple D&D quick play ruleset. I ran it with couple of players who never played a RPG before and it was a lot of fun. The second movie, Wrath of the Dragon God came with the Servant of Decay campaign. I haven’t tried it yet but I skimmed it and looks fun. I may have to modified the rules to either D&D 5th Edition and maybe even Fate. Both DVDs came with mini documentaries about the game D&D which I enjoyed. By the way, the first movie is terrible but almost in a fun way and the second movie is an OK movie. I can probably write a whole blog post about them.

Similarly I also got this Yu-Gi-Oh Volume 7 manga. It is about the main character trapped playing a Yu-Gi-Oh themed RPG and it is quite meta. Most Yu-Gi-Oh mangas are a chaotic mess but this story line is a very fun read. Anyways it came with a little game called Dungeon Battle in the back of the book. I was looking for a good scan of it and I can’t find any information on it anywhere. That is what I fear; as everything goes online, we lose fun little things like this. Here are bad scans of the game if you are curious about it.

Some other cool items I found recently are signed comics (Heathen NYCC edition signed by Natasha Alterici and Yi Soon Shin #4 signed by Onrie Kompan) and the Joking Hazard game with an expansion. Everything here costed me about $10!
