Sweet!

You can check availability of the game at your local store at the B&N website. You can't BUY it online, though.

I put it on hold at my local store, but online it shows it as $99 - will it be $50 when I pick it up, or is it only certain locations? Not sure I will be able to find a group to play with, but I love a space theme and the price is right for NIS.

Apparently this isn't a prank. A buddy of mine found a single copy at a local store for $50.

Actually I just called my store, they have one copy left and it is indeed $50. I figured it was 4/1 fodder, but hey, $50 is no laughing matter! ninja

This is totally legit! I figured there was no harm in calling one of my local stores just to make sure and, sure enough, it was on sale for $49.99. For any Omaha folks, I have a single copy reserved for myself at Crossroads Mall that I will pick up later this afternoon. I couldn't say for sure if that particular location has another copy or not. But according to the B&N website, there's definitely at least one copy at the Oakview Mall location.

Out of curiosity, how did you find out about this deal, jergarmar?

I also called my local store and found that it actually is half priced. Hoping to pick it up shortly.

Just did a "pick me up" reservation online and got confirmation that a copy of eclipse is reserved at the local store for $49.97 before taxes.

First of all, I'm flattered that this is so out of the blue that people thought it was a 4/1 prank. But it's not -- I just got back from picking up my copy.

Secondly, I heard about it from the PA forums. A guy spotted them putting stickers on stuff over the weekend, including Eclipse, and he heard that a clearance sale was coming. I couldn't get ANY confirmation of it, but I called today "just in case", and hit the jackpot.

Quite odd, I pass through B&N probably once or twice a month and always glance to see if they added any new games (just to see if anything is getting a mainstream push). And last time I saw Eclipse as a the new kid on the block, and now it's on clearance, almost right after. Interesting business model....but good for anyone looking for it cheap.

So - is this game worth $50?

I know that's a *loaded* question .. but $50 is a lot of bones even for a ton of stuff in a big box.

I was disappointed in it, but if you're interested, I'd buy it at that price and try it. You can probably resell it for enough to make all or nearly all your money back.

Re: Eclipse $50 on clearance at Barnes & Noble
I know that B&N always has some sort of coupon going. Does anyone know of any currently offered which could apply to Eclipse?

If there's one in stock nearby you can reserve it online and they hold it for 3 business days. That gives you time to read about it. That's what I'm doing...but chances are I'll go pick it up tomorrow because I'm weak. laugh

The one coupon I am aware of, expired on 3/31. Not sure if there is a new one.

I'd be interested to hear which version people are getting from B&N:

1st Printing (third alien is blue)



2nd Printing (third alien is red)



I own a sealed copy of the 1st printing, yet currently have a copy on hold at B&N. If it's a 2nd printing, I'd consider purchasing it and selling my 1st printing. Or is that a bad idea...?
