I stopped by Ollie's on Wednesday on the way to a conference. I didn't know if Marrakech was worth picking up for $9.99, but I was intrigued since it appeared to be a euro style game from Fundex. I wish I had bought it now that I read a few comments.

I didn't count how many they had, but I remember seeing more than one. Nothing else caught my eye, but if you're close it might be worth stopping in.

In my opinion you made the right call to save $10 for another game. It was ok, but nothing special, and not something I would really want to play again. The theme is not that exciting and I found it very boring.

I think that is a great grab on a nice family style game. Also a Spiel des Jahres nominee. The components are great, the little rugs and the wooden coins. Plus a nice little probability, puzzle game for families and kids. I picked mine up from Ollie's a few years ago for the same price. Nice to see them floating around at a good price.

Thanks you a ton for the heads up. I was heading into Lansing today anyway and saw this about a half an hour before leaving. Ollie's is one very interesting store so it's was a nice little adventure.

Just moved to Lansing so Ollies is a new store to my wife and I. Do they sell many board games there? We have been meaning to stop in anyways since I heard they tend to sell tools, generators and a lot of other really useful things insanely cheap. Would be nice if they carried games regularly too!

They have an aisle of games but rarely much of interest. I've seen Marrakech frequently over the past few years in Cleveland but I already own it. I bought Executive Decision there last year. Haven't seen much else worth mentioning.

FYI, Clem's Comics is the best local board gaming store although it is partly a comics shop.
