Hi all,

I can't believe that I completely forgot to mention (in my journal entry yesterday), that you can get Heroscape at the temporary game/calendar store (go!) in the eaton centre for $45 Cdn. They originally had it for $90, but now have it on for half price...$15 cheaper than I paid for it for an xmas present...

Heroscape in Waterloo, ON for $22.50
The game store by my house bought a LOT of these for christmas. They set up a booth in the middle of the mall with TONS of games, and didn't sell them all. So now all the games are back in the store (since their booth is gone), piled on top of pool tables. Heroscape, orignally $80 there, was reduced to $45, then another 50% off. I'm not interested for any price - no one would play it - but I thought it was a pretty good price.

I should just clarify that no one in my family or gaming group would play it, but I think it's a neat game for the right crowd.

That's an amazing price...If I was in Waterloo I'd pick up a few copies for giving as gifts at that price...

in that silly green stuff?
$45 Cdn is probably about $38 U.S. I would guess...I know, not a particularly good price for heroscape stateside, but we haven't seen the kinds of heavy discounting for it here that have happened down there...

my guess...
If the U.S. list price is $40 (is that right?), then I would guess that the wholesale is about $24 U.S.

Well, if those numbers are correct, you hafta wonder what is going thru the head of this retailer.

Can't gouge the customer at more than keystone? Oh well, no choice but to dump this thing at below cost...

Online retailers must be happy to have such inept "competition".

Tripp, help me out here...

It might have been a miscommunication between the store owner and the staff. Lots of stuff was discounted 50%, some things had a red sticker on them with the discounted price, and some things still had the original price, but were on a table that said "50% off". Well, Heroscape was on the table, and it had a price of $45 - I even clarified with the clerk that it was 50% off that, and he said yes - so the person right next to me went to the table immediately and picked up a copy

I got some great all-wood games for kids for $12.50 (regular $40) for birthday presents for my son's friends, etc. Also had Coda for $10 CDN, so I bought up all 5 copies. All I can say is someone's probably going to be pissed when they find out all their heroscapes sold for $22.50 each.

When I bought it before xmas, the everyday price at Toys R Us here in Toronto was $59.99. Last time I looked it still was that price. Did they drop the price recently?

No I was just hooped up on too much coffee the day I posted that. Don't know what I was thinking...You are right $59.99 is the regular ToysRus canadian price.

I did get one for 25% off a day or two before xmas though...totally by surprise. I was in a mall and the TrU had a big '% of board games' sign in the window, so I ran in and bought a 2nd copy just for the extra terrain.
