Ok, I have tried this a few times, and can't figure it out. I am not sure if I need a HOW TO, or if this is a bug (no, a feature!), or what.

If I hover over Forums at the top of the page, and select Search, and type these keywords in...:

Eclipse Barnes Noble

...why can't I find this thread: Eclipse $50 on clearance at Barnes & Noble

Am I doing something wrong? Do I misunderstand how to search the forums? Is there, hidden somewhere, instructions for searching? Am I just blind, or slow, or dumb, or something? (ok, all the previous might be true ...)

I did find it easily from Google with Eclipse Barnes Noble BGG in the search box. Is that the only, or most reliable, way?

Thanks in advance!

I'd use google ultimately it's a search engine and is likely to do a better job.

You can also set the domain for best results.

"Eclipse Barnes Noble site:boardgamegeek.com"
