    The guy might be a coin collector. The grading system for coins starts with Brillant uncirculated and works its way down to good then poor, and finally slug.

      The guy might be a coin collector. The grading system for coins starts with
      Brillant uncirculated and works its way down to good then poor, and finally
      slug. The game being described sounds like it should be rated as poor
      condition; you can still tell it was a game once.

      Sorry if this is slightly off topic (but no more so than Andrews weak
      attempt at a blank post to battle the Autoposter).

      I saw this posted in rec.games.board.marketplace at lunch today. I almost
      couldn't resist a follow-up post but in the end just decided to share it
      with the UG group as I found it pretty funny.
