Just wanted to give you all a heads-up that my local B&N had 3 or 4 copies of Titan on their half-off games table. Sticker's $70, so $35. I was tempted to grab one as trade bait...

There were a couple other things there which would appeal to the discerning gamer, but this was the biggest deal. Off the top of my head, Gulo Gulo, Red November, Master of Venice (Maybe Merchants of Venice? 2009 game)...

God, I always see these things and think "What the hell's wrong with MY local B&N?" All they stock is monopoly and their crappy coffee game. I actually saw Settlers of Catan in there a couple of weeks ago, so maybe there's hope.

I can't imagine walking in and seeing things like Titan and Red November.

If it doesn't say "Twilight" on the box, it's not at my B&N -- exceptions made for stocking games with "Struggle" or "Imperium". Sigh.

Mine has a decent stock of "good" games mixed in with the usual crap. I've seen Puerto Rico, Dominion, the WoW adventure game, Age of Conan, Settlers... and more than a few abstract games I hadn't heard of before but whose multi-lingual descriptions suggest a euro publisher.

Got Villa Paletti there today (also half off!).

I picked one up, you can never have too many copies

They also had cosmic encounter as well in Peabody. Burlington had nothing interesting.

Oh right, I forgot about Cosmic Encounter.

Also: Peabody? That's where I live!

Maybe I'll run into you at Bob Day today.

Read the rulebook, plan for all contingencies, and…read the rulebook again.

I live in Austin. You'd think that at least one of the three B&Ns I visit would be the "cool" one to stock Titan or whatever. I've seen Settlers and some Onyx versions of some Hasbro titles and that's as close to cool as we get.

It's possible that one of them IS cool, and 'Geeks snap sale items up before I ever learn about them!
