My local Barnes & Noble has a bunch of games on for 50% off. The two most interesting ones include:

Make 'n' Break
and
Make 'n' Break Extreme

and a whole pile of low-rated Spiderwick Chronicles games, along with the usual variety of Labyrinth games.

You've got to be kidding me! I just bought Make 'n Break less than a week ago at Barnes & Noble at full price. They had to go back to the stock room to find it. I guess the games were sitting there, ready to be put on clearance.

Really fun game, by the way, so I'd highly recommend picking it up, especially at half price. I'll have to go by and see if I can pick up a couple copies for gifts.

Make 'n' Break Extreme is one of the ones some B&N's had for clearance during their annual Feb. sale.

Maybe the ones that didn't sell have them on clearance before do now?

When I phoned another BN store to ask about clearance games, the woman said they just got in about a dozen boxes of clearance stuff and were just starting to put it all out, and reprice it, today.

Thanks for the tip. I managed to pick up Make 'n Break Extreme, Amazing Labyrinth, and three extra copies of Make 'n Break. They had a few other games, but nothing too exceptional. My wife has gone back tonight to look at some of their other deals and I told her to pick up a copy of the Labyrinth card game as well. Our store also has half price Thomas trains, the nice quality wood trains. Finding these half price is very uncommon, so we're going to pick up a couple for my youngest son's birthday.

Got Make and Break (both), Pirateology and Dragonology games (there was a Wizardology one, too), and some general Cranium stuff there plus lots of books (oddly enough, their occult section seemed to have been cleared out), plenty of puzzles, and other games (Golden Compass, Uno versions, Eragon).

Is this 50% off games sales at Barnes & Noble noticeable or advertised? Do they have signs advertising it? My local B&N doesn't have anything according to a friend. Do you need to inquire about the sale or is it just for certain B&N stores?

Suddenly a shot rang out! A door slammed. The maid screamed. Suddenly a pirate ship appeared on the horizon! While millions of people were starving, the king lived in luxury. Meanwhile, on a small farm in Kansas, a boy was growing up.

It sounds / seems like each store just got random boxes of clearance stuff. My local store has two huge tables in the middle of the store with big 50% red-dot signs on them. The tables have many of the things people here are mentioning (Thomas the Train, occult books, etc), as well as a few random games. Seems like it's mostly just a crap-shoot what your store will have. I got Rush Hour Jr. yesterday at mine for around $7.

There's a B&N next to my office, so when I saw this thread yesterday I ran over there - I didn't see anything at all on clearance.

My B&N only had Amazeing Labyrinth, Shrek checkers, Cranium cloodle and sculptorades. A shame they didn't have humdinger, I think I would have liked that one.

Missed getting Transformers Risk on the website by like 10 minutes.

Thanks for sharing this. I went today and the local store had a bunch of ThinkFun puzzles (like River Crossing), the 2 Make & Break games, a few cranium games, 2 different amazeing labyrinth games, Pirateology, Dragonology (or maybe it was Wizardology). A lot of other stuff that I can't remember. There were 3 clearance tables.

I also picked up some Thomas the Train stuff for my toddlers at 50 percent off.

There were more Make and Break Extremes at my local place. Will people want these in trade if I pick them up?

Grabbed 2 of each version of Make 'n' Break today. First B&N didn't have anything, but the second I stopped at had a lot.

Thanks!

My local B&N had Eragon & Piratology. I bought Eragon for $10 - I figure it'll be good if the younger cousins & nieces come to visit, or I might just break it down and use the pieces in my RPG's...
