Found BSG for $12 at my local Borders in the clearance section. Never know what you might find in those bins. Happy hunting.

This is very YMMV. Most Borders sold their stock of BSGs long ago during the regular 40-50% off coupon days and did not get more. It would help if we knew where you were located and if there were any copies left after you bought yours.

Re: Battlestar Galactica $11.98 at Borders
For anyone interested, I went to most of the Borders in the DFW area a few weeks ago in search of BSG. No luck though. All I found was a couple copies of TTR, some Forbidden Island and a lot of Blokus. At the time games were only 80% off, though that has probably changed by now.

Re: Battlestar Galactica $11.98 at Borders
Anyone want to be my friend if they find two copies?

@dolan I'll even take a copy of Ticket to Ride (non euro version) 80% off would be a steal to add another awesome version of that game

Sadly out of the borders near me theres a total of 2. 1 went out but before any signs of this hit the web. I think all the stock was moved to the second store. No sales =/

The one nearest me has a stack of Blokus Trigon and a few copies of 10 Days in the Americas, but nothing else of note.

No, ours is still going strong. They've had a pile of games on clearance for a while, but they just dropped the prices again - BSG was $28 last week and $37 a few weeks ago.

That was the last of the games in the clearance section. Wish I had been there a day or two sooner, they had several there last week before the latest price drop.

Whoops! Sorry guys, I meant that I found TTR 20% off. Not sure which edition it was though. Hah, 80% off would have been a completely different story.

They're both in Pennsylvania, according to the tooltips on their avatar flags.

I'd actually get it for that price. Truthfully, I wasn't a fan the one time I played....could've been that the 3 experienced players were cylons and the 3 noobs (me included) were humans.

Success in Rancho Santa Margarita, Orange County, California--grabbed the last one. Thanks for the tip!

Edit: There were none at the Mission Viejo location. Game was found on shelf along with the other games.

Scouting report:

Simsbury CT Borders- one of the ones being liquidated.

2 copies of Game of Thrones LCG $45
1 copy Small World $50
2 copies Forbidden Island $16
1 copy Dominion $45
2 copies Black Sheep $16

And then games were still only 25% off, so the prices were still not particularly bargains.

Battlestar Galactica was on a separate table with a handwritten sticker of $25- I didn't ask if it was also 25% off that price, but it might have been.

I saw it for 17 bucks at Borders on discount and passed it up because there is no way I will ever get a group together to play this... sadly.

BSG was a B&N $2 clearance at one point. I really hope those $2 clearances aren't dead.

Well, the Lynnwood, WA Borders, which is closing,has absolutely nothing excitingyuk. The games that are there are only marked down 25% at this point and I really didn't see anything interesting, thought I'd save someone the trip.

FFG must have made a killing off these chains if they ordered so many they've marked them down to $2.

The $2 sales were tiered clearances. The games had to first survive, I think, being 25% off and then 50% off for some length of time. I suspect a vast minority of stores ended up having anything interesting left at $2.
