I don't know if it's in the wrong position (might possibly even belong in hot deals europe forum)... however

... suggestion on the poor choice of "subject", it gives no useful info to help folks to decide whether this is a thread they should open up or not... you can always edit your base post and change the subject... maybe to something like

"Priests of Ra available for under £10 at the Works (UK)"

Furthermore, since this appears to be a time sensitive event, I'd put it in News, not General.

You've obviously never been in THE WORKS lol - They just keep things till they sell them - there is no time limit - at my local shop they have 2 copies of INDUSTRY that have been there since they opened about 2 years ago same price. I been waiting on a Sale or something but never happens lol

Given an arbitrary long amount of time from now.... 4 weeks, 3 months, end of 2015, will they still have copies available at this price? If the answer is No or Not Sure, then I'd say it is time sensitive.

And while I won't ever be knocking Priests of Ra, the possibly even better Taj Mahal is also available. And numerous other games such as Cuba.

Actually I think it's not Cuba, but the Cuba expansion. Which requires Cuba to play. It may take The Works a while to shift those...

It is indeed. But they do also have Havana - another decent game in the Cuba "family".
As for Priests of Ra, If you don't have Ra then it is probably worth getting (if you DO have Ra or Razzia it might still be worth £10* to add variety)

* I'm not sure if the deal is still on, but there was a 20% off plus free postage for mail order purchases … just after I spent £30 at the Works soblue

My local branch had the base game as well.

It depends a lot on if you have Ra.

If you do, then Taj Mahal one PoR.

If you don't, and don't expect to, that's harder. I'm going to duck answering as I may not be objective.

I bought most of the games on offer:
Furstenfeld, Samurai the Card Game, Priests of Ra, Asteroids, Sky Line 3000, La Citta, Mousquetaires de Roy, Bean Trader, Strozzi, Unexpected Treasures, Spin Monkeys...
Haven't even tried all of them out yet but so far none of them was a waste of money, though I'm a little worried about the Bean Trader one. I only bought it because it was so colourful!
Furstenfeld is the best out of these so far.

It's now May 2015. My local The Works store still has copies of the Cuba expansion, and I just grabbed a copy of Priests of Ra, still a tenner

That's the right link (page three of the board games section still has Yeti Slalom, Cuba El Presidente, and Bonnie and Clyde).

Unfortunately The Works sells remaindered and leftover stock, so while individual shops will still have a handful of copies, if there's none left in the warehouse, it won't be for sale on the website. Sorry

Makes sense. Thanks!

Still available on the website, but now £5. No postage if you arrange to pick it up at a store. With the discount code on the site's banner, it ended up costing me £3.75!

Makes Taj Mahal look a rip off at a tenner (not really, I went for both)

I just looked at their website, and couldn't find it, either by searching for "Priests of Ra" or by browsing the Board Games category. What am I doing wrong?
