Hi all,

Quick note for those in the GTA (downtown or North York) Ontario:

Hairy T is having a pretty decent sale on games that are not on their bestsellers list (10% off bestsellers but not as great).

30% off all the other games. I picked up El Grande Big Box for $56 before tax in the North York location. I also saw Aquasphere ($37?), Blood Rage ($53?) and Race for the Galaxy ($22). Definitely YMMV though - the downtown location would have other titles as well.

Today is the last day - have fun! http://www.htnorth.com/

Do you know what qualifies as non best seller?
How is their selection of board games?

Thanks!

I think they define it based on past sales? Carc, Dominion and Catan series are all on the best-seller wall. I think it's best you check it out yourself if you have the time to pass by.

Not alot of folks can access these stores, so sometimes you can find some good out-of-print titles. Really YMMV. I saw Lords of Waterdeep & Expansion 30% off as well. 2 copies of Eclipse and Twilight Imperium expansions 30% off.

North York store:
They have 1 wall that is marked as Best Sellers.
Games like Castles of Mad King Ludwig, 7 Wonders, King of Tokyo, Carcassonne are on there.
Also Waterdeep and skullport, stockpile, Sheriff of Nottingham, Splendor, Dominion and expansions, Takenoko, Tokaido were there.

The rest are 30% off

Isle of Skye = $33 regular price


They had Wallenstein for $63 regular price. So $44 with 30% off.

It was in the very middle with skullport..

I didn't pick up anything.. cuz the wife would kill me. lol
I was holding a few games ready to head over to checkout.
Then I thought, maybe I should ask the wife...

Good thing cuz she didn't want me to pick up the games I was holding.

She did say I can go tonight to look for other games..

Intelligent choice, haha.

Always better to ask for permission first. =)

There were some gems there.
But for the most part, by Monday when i checked, the selection of games was small for me.

Card games were not 30% off
Anything not on the back wall was only 10% off.

I took a bunch of games up from a table they were sorting and they kept saying it's only 10% off.

I had most of the games that were on sale..

here are some I saw on the back wall that should have been 30% off.

Keyflower
Bora Bora
Flick Em Up (wood)
Mare Nostrum Empires
Scoville
Spinderella
Stronghold v2
Parfum
Rum and Bones
Quadropolis
Murano
Wallenstein
Vihnos


Next time I will have to keep an eye on their website for these sales.

That's strange - I saw those on the back wall too and the guy was saying the back wall is 30% discount.

For the card games, basically anything not on the top rack was supposed to be 30% off - I wonder if it's because of different staff. They aren't super organized there unfortunately.

Best way to stay informed is through Newsfeed on Facebook = just like and prioritize their page. They have one each quarter.

Yes I think the staff makes a difference.
The guy doing cash wasn't a board game guy at all. He was their magic card guy. So every game he questioned whether it was a best seller (cuz it looked like it) or if it was a card game.
He kept saying these games aren't marked in the system as 30% off.

That does sound frustrating - too bad you had to go through that. What would probably have helped them is to just compile a list of the Bestsellers and basically everything outside of that would be 30% off. That would certainly help the staff that is not familiar.......
