Just came across Revolution! in TKMaxx Bletchley today. They had a couple
of copies in the kids section at £9.99

Designer: Philip duBarry
Publisher: Steve Jackson Games

Didn't know much about the game so didn't buy a copy. Looks ok if you like blind bidding for area control type of game.

I was wondering if there'd be any TK Maxx action again this year, thanks for the info. I've heard that this 'un is better than you'd think, might have a look for it in my local branch tomorrow.

I always keep an eye out, just in case!

Should also mention that I picked up a copy of The Hobbit - The Card Game by Reiner Knizia in the Bedford Interchange Retail Park TKMaxx a couple of weeks ago for £3.99.

Not played it yet, but according to the reviews it's a simplified version of Knizia'a Kings Gate.

Joe, if you find two copies of Revolution could you pick one up for me, I'll happily get one for a tenner! I hear very good things about it and will happily try it out.

Went to london charing cross road store, picked up the only copy of revolution they had. Still one copy of abalone there for 9.99. Otherwise just usual crap, lots of angry birds. However, it looks like they haven't properly ramped up for christmas yet.

Picked up my copy of Revolution in Carmarthen today. I left one for anyone else who's interested.
It's with the man stuff (tools and such) rather than near the toys and games.

Cheers OP! After a disappointing trip to the Cambridge retail park store, remembered there was a store in the town centre and quickly nabbed their last copy.

If you live in Cambridge, let me save you the trouble: there's none left in either the town centre store nor the retail park store.

Picked up copy of Revolution! in Cumbernauld TK Maxx. Still a couple left. I think I got the last copy of Abalone (The hexagonal boxed one for those curious) I'm afraid.

Just had a quick look in Chester. Couldn't see anything, but the place was such a mess I doubt I would have found it had there been any.

I bought a copy of this a few years ago when they had stock. It's a superb game and rather ruthless! It's a great laugh!

Good to hear people have been finding copies.

I have to say I was being tempted into going back for a copy after hearing some positive noise from others on this thread about the game ... & today, a nice surprise, my partner picked up a copy for me in the Luton TK Maxx! That's love!

Apparently there were 2 more copies there also. FYI.

Couldn't agree with you more. It doesn't make it to our gaming table often, even though I argue for it, because it is ruthless. However, now I have a copy of my own, I can take it to other groups who might be more... impressionable o_o ... I just need to exert my influences correctly...

Nothing of interest in the Darlington branch yesterday. [Probably all to the good as far as my wallet is concerned! ]

I found one and purchased it in Chester.

There was a Caveman game there if anyone is interested?

There was one copy of Revolution in the Croydon Purley Way branch yesterday - didn't really appeal to me but it's probably still there if anyone else fancies it.

There were also 2 copies in central Cardiff. No Abalone, but there were a couple of "name as many cheeses as you can in 30 seconds"-type party games.

Thanks for the headsup on this! I had been meaning to get this game for a while.

Got one in TK Maxx in Stephen's Green Shopping Centre, Dublin yesterday (€12.99).

Didn't notice any other copies but I didn't spend much time looking as I was pretty eager to get out of there.

Probably worth checking other branches around Ireland if interested.
