Over the weekend Brisbane hosted its Lifeline BookFest and my best friend and I meet up to hunt down some bargains along with thousands of others.
For anyone who has not heard of the bookfest it is one of Lifelines major fundraisers. Lifeline is run by Uniting Care. Uniting Care Community is one of the Queensland's largest community service providers, offering Lifeline services, child and family care, counselling, disability support and social inclusion programs throughout Queensland.
The bookfest is the worlds largest second hand book sale with millions of books on offer every day. It takes up half of the Brisbane convention and exhibition center and is attended by thousands many pushing supermarket trolleys full to the top with books. As well as book they also sell CD's DVD's, puzzles and board games.

I picked up a game of scattergories that has only been played a few times and a cute retro set of board games that has all the pieces and is in great condition. You can see the games on the front and I had heard of all of them except the Motor Race and the Steeple Chase.
Do you remember these?
