There is a store (chain) in my local mall (Alderwood Mall, Lynnwood, WA) that opens for Christmas and then closes out everything right after - it is called Go!Games or Go!Toys. Right now all games and puzzles are 50% off.

We saw Blokus, Blokus Trigon, World of Warcraft Boardgame, Diplomacy, Pentago, Acquire, RushHour, Zooloreto, as well as many others.

If you have one near you, check it out!

Well their prices are pretty high to begin with, but you should still find deals there. GO! games are not just in the NW; we have them in Virginia.

The Westgate mall in Madison has a temp Go! kiosk with a 33% off sale. Unfortunately, nothing of quality to note. One copy of new Settlers, and many Monopoly games (choose your flavor).

My mall was only 33% off. Mostly just had Monopoly and party games left. I was hoping they would have Seafarers of Catan left, but I was out of luck. But I did score Carcassonne for $20, so I still got a decent deal.

i just checked out the one in my mall and everything is still 33% so far. i'm hoping they go 50% soon, since i'm hoping to catch either A&A: Guadalcanal or diplomacy on the cheap. my wife got me the new settlers last year when it went 50%.

Was able to pick up Carcassonne for $16. (Yep, I finally own a copy. Talk about arriving late to the party....yeesh!)

Missed out on a copy of Axis and Allies: Revised for $20.

I was disappointed that they didn't have the same selection they had last year....Ticket to Rides, Settlers, etc. Maybe they didn't sell at all. ????

Good luck to everyone on their hunt!

The kiosk in Stonebriar Mall in Frisco, TX was only 33% off, and the only good games(non-party or Monopoly) left were Blokus, Blokus Trigon, and Ingenious.

Thanks for the tip! Picked up Pillars of the Earth and Zooloretto both at 50% off. They also had several copies of Khet and Diplomacy. I almost bought all four games, but thankfully I was able to listen to reason....

Dang, mine was only 33% off in Grand Rapids. Bought Acquire (2008) for $23. Was reeeealy hoping to find Zooloretto! They had a few copies of Diplomacy left, as well as Risk: Godstorm. I almost picked up the last copy of Ingenious, but it was pretty scratched up on the outside, and they didn't want to lower the price (at 50% off, I'd have run with it, but when gaming with non-gamers, presentation is everything).

Thanks much for the heads up! Cannot wait to finally play Acquire.

Some stores also have Killer Bunnies and the Quest for the Magic Carrot blue box starter (with some bonus cards, as well, from another booster) for $12.50. That's better than you can do online if you include shipping in your comparison. I also saw black, yellow and pink booster sets.

I passed on Diplomacy, Acquire, Risk, Axis & Allies ($25) and Khet. I was just looking for something stupid to play with my lazy family.

The Woodland Hills, CA location had a lot of nothing. Saw Axis & Allies, Khet, and Blokus, but pedestrian stuff otherwise.

I'm glad you said something Dan (torque2k).
I was going to drive to Grand Rapids to see if they had anything good.

I'm in Muskegon and checked the store in the Lakes Mall. They 3 Zooloretto left at half off which was $25.

I was hoping to snatch a Battlestar Galatica game but they were gone. The only things left of note were the Risk:Gods game, Acquire, Diplomacy, and two Killer Bunny decks.

They had a bunch of party games but I do not give them the time of day. I pay them as much attention in memory as the 50 types of Monopoly that were also there.

Yeah, I live in Decatur and noticed the same thing at our store. I was amazed to see World of Warcraft for 50% off. If I was interested in the game or could find anyone interested in trading, I would pick up the game.

Awesome. Just got back from a local store here in Newport News, Virginia.

Picked up Khet, Zooloretto, Rattle Snake, and Qwirkle. All 50% off.

Christmas, the sequal.

Having never been at one not owned by the local owners (i.e. outside of central Illinois), I was wondering if people found that the prices were actually marked about $3 above list price (I don't mean just for the sell-off, I mean in general)? Our local one tends to have Settlers marked at $45, and other games just a few bucks above normal list.

Just wondering if their prices are decided by some central group or, since they are franchises, decided by the local guys...

The website makes it sound as if it is a Franchise that shares a distribution network.
