TK Maxx in York still has Knizia's Mensa Connections for £8 or £10, same game, different prices. This is the excellent Einfach Genial, over-priced at £20 but a steal at £8. Look in the Men's Crap Gifts area, amongst the gold ball poker sets.

They also have Navia Dratp Starter Sets 1 and 2, for £8 each. My understanding is that the maker went out of business, so if you're intending to start a collection, this may not be a good idea. But if you already have some of the figures, then these looked pretty nice to me and will add to your game.

Clearly I don't know what I'm talking about. No change there then.

TK Maxx seems to be splitting its games up all over the shop, not just in one area any more.

Cheers,
Jon.

Re: TK MAXX - UK bargains - Mensa Connections & Navia Dratp
Bandai went out of business? Hardly! They acquired Namco and merged with them. They are now a subsidiary of Namco Bandai. But anyway that's totally besides the point. They did stop producing/supporting Navia Dratp, but that should in NO WAY dissuade anyone from buying this superb game. It plays GREAT out of the two starters and boosters are cheap of you feel the need to add.

Seems like the Navia Dratp deal may be local to you. Definitely didn't have it in branches in Stevenage, Hatfield, St.Albans or Hemel.

Re: TK MAXX - UK bargains - Mensa Connections & Navia Dratp
well I managed to pick up both Navia Drapt starter sets from one of my local TK Maxxs (Hanley, for some reason, has two) For £7.99 each so there are some out there.

Also picked up a copy of Mensa Connections for £7.99 as a christmas present.

They also had a number of Lord of the Rings Trivia games for £9.99.
Some Chirzo rising (Could be spelt wrong) starter sets for £3.99
A Star Wars Minature battles starter set for £7.99

Re: TK MAXX - UK bargains - Mensa Connections & Navia Dratp
Went in specifically to get Mensa Connections (the name alone makes it a purchase with an embarrassment factor equal to that of top shelf reading matter). After a brief search I not only found it, but also LotR Confrontation, a bargain at £5.99. In the past I've also seen a fair few Avalon Hill releases, unfortunately the more family-orientated titles.

[First ever post (the post that hurts the most)]

Re: TK MAXX - UK bargains - Mensa Connections & Navia Dratp
The main trouble with TK Maxx is that there is no order in the store - things can be in a number of different departments and on any shelf. In the Hanley TK Mensa was in three different locations in store and at different prices!

I nearly missed the Navia sets because I looked on all the shelves two or three times and didn't see it. I thought I'd have one last trawl and looked behind every big box and eventually found them.

Same has happened with games like LOTR - not seen them on first look had to go away and come back again before they appear!

Picked up another Mensa Connections today, 7.99. They still had Navia Dratp, and now Risk Star Wars and Risk LOTR editions, 10 quid each. And ALL THE GAMES HAVE MOVED AGAIN!

Re: TK MAXX - UK bargains - Mensa Connections & Navia Dratp
I picked up Mensa Connections for £7.99 and also Toru for £6.99, which looks good fun in a crowd!

TK Maxx is so frustrating though, it's like shopping at a jumble sale.

Just found the two Navia Dratp starter sets for 8 quids a pop: it looks as though they receive new, but somewhat arbitrary, stock regularly so keep your eyes peeled.

Re: TK MAXX - UK bargains - Mensa Connections & Navia Dratp
I've found a new edition of Einfach Genial in the UK, published as Ingenious by the Green Board Game Co. at £20. So clearly the mensa version is being cleared out quickly. So if you miss this £8 bargain now, you'll have to wait a few more years to get it cheap.
