I grabbed Yamatai, king domino and Lanterns all for around 60 bucks. I also saw Catan, Carcassonne, and a few other stalwarts.

this is typically all locations; they are pop up stores that are only open during the holiday season. iirc, last year, they started increasing discount w/plans to have all stock gone by end of january.

pricing is MSRP so yamatai @ 50% off was probably $30+tax im guessing?

Their pricing has been a bit higher than MSRP, or at least it was during the store closings last year. I remember Risk Europe being around $48 before discount, and some marvel legends figures were definitely $5 above msrp

Do they drop lower than 50% closer to closing time? Yamatai for $30+tax is similar to current eBay pricing. I would definitely jump on it if 60-75%

Yes, they definitely go lower. They try to have all stores closed by the end of January.

Traditionally they have a couple. Got a few x-wing core sets last year at the tail end of the sale. I have no idea what they have for FFG this year though.

Maybe I'll stop and look, but I never seem to find anything good after the holidays. I was just in the mall to see Star Wars, too, but we didn't see the store (might've been preoccupied with new Pokemon whistle).

Last year, only the calendars went to 75% off. Other items (including games) stayed at 50% throughout the sale.

There's a lot of good stuff at the Hillsdale Shopping Center in San Mateo, CA.

1 x Rivals for Catan
1 x Betrayal at House on the Hill (for $27)
1 x Pandemic (for $20)
2 x Pathfinder Starter Set (for $13)
1 x Potion Explosion (for $25)
3 x Dragon Ball Z board games
3 x Risk
2 x Axis and Allies 1941
0 x Harry Potter: Hogwarts Battle (for $27, but I got the last one here)
Lots of Munchkins (Marvel, Nightmare Before Christmas)
Lots of the usual suspects (Clue, Monopoly, etc.)
Lots of others I'm probably forgetting

Last year I waited to see if they would drop past 50% and they never did, so I was happy to be there early this year. I got the last copy of Harry Potter: Hogwarts Battle for $27 out the door, which is as good as it's ever been on Amazon and I think my wife MIGHT actually play it with me. Thank you OP!

iirc; the store closest to me did jump to 75% off right at the end of the month...like maybe last week??

they def prefer to dump all merch vs pack it up and shipt it somewhere. they do have some kiosks that only sell calendars up year round

The stores in upstate NY (Syracuse, Binghamton, Horseheads, Ithaca) and northern PA (Wilkes Barre) all dropped to at least 75% off on games and toys. I don't buy anything until 75% off and I bought a bunch of action figures and a couple x-wing core games last year. I believe my local store hit 90% at one point, but was pretty much empty by then.

Lots of the games noted so far are going for solid prices... 30-50% msrp is certainly reasonable if you really want the product NIS. The impulse buy trigger for me is >70%. i'll wait to see if i can get a copy of yamatai for 20 or lower.

Don't bother going to the South Hill Mall store in Puyallup, WA. They don't carry any games at that store.

They did say that the Super Mall store and Tukwila store had games.

So I'd call any store you are thinking of visiting to make sure they have games; otherwise, it is likely a good waste of time.
