Are selling off some old lines. My local one in Speke had a load of stuff including books, puzzles and a couple of games at very reduced prices.

There were a bunch of top trumps and so on, but the one of interest to us (maybe) was about 20 copies of Once Upon a Time: The Storytelling Card Game. On the back was a price tag of £14.99, on the front a £9.99 label and a "half price" sticker. This confused me (easily done) so I asked the assistant for a price check, which came back as £3. Bargain.

£3 being half of £9.99 of course. No, wait a minute, half of £14.99. No, hang on.......

Good spot! I'll check the one in Manchester for similar goodies.

Actually, I was running a calculation in my head. Something like:
- £9.99, nope, I am not going to buy it for that.
- £7.50 is half of £14.99... erm... no, probably not for that either.
- £5 is half of £9.99, well I might buy it for that.

And when the assistant turned some stunning blue eyes on me, smiled and said £3, well...

If you find anything good in Manchester, even if you already have it or don't want it, get them to check the price. I am planning on a trip into Manchester shortly. *rubs hands*

They had some puzzles including one called Eternity II which goes for about £25 and was marked up at £5.

I am a dismal failure and a wimp. I discovered that the Manchester Borders is nowhere near the city centre (it's somewhere north of it on Cheetham Hill Road) and I was tired and it was pouring down, so I abandoned the mission. Let us know if you make it and whether it is therefore worth the trek.

I can however confirm that the Manchester TX Maxx had nothing of interest today.

No Once Upon A Time in York Borders. Quiddler, LCR, Apples To Apples Junior, but nothing on sale.

Sigh.

Well 14.99 didnt float my boat. And I couldnt help but laugh at 9.99. £3 sounded worthwhile. But when I found three of these games in a bargain bin for a quid each well I couldnt help myself and bought them all.
many thanks to Chris H. for the tipoff

Brighton Borders had nothing of interest - I couldn't find any evidence of a games sale (but it could have been hidden away - I was in a rush and with a toddler!)
