I'm wondering about the restrictions on this coupon:

40% off is pretty good, but I guess this is probably a pretty restrictive coupon.

I think the gift area is the crap near the registers. What we're usually looking for is coupons that say Adult Games.

Yes. Barnes and Noble pretty much want you to pay full retail for their board games. Unless your local Barnes just happens to have a game you want that you absolutely MUST have today and are willing to pay +30 or 40% to have it now, it's not worth it. Rarely do they seem to have 30 or 40 percent discounts on the good stuff. I miss Borders, although they never carried good board games, at least they had good discounts often without being forced to pay for a membership. Now Barnes pretty much has a monopoly. Ugh.

I've used a couple B&N 40% off game coupons linked to from here in the past few months.

I did too. I picked up Agricola and 7 Wonders for %40 off recently. I felt pretty good about those deals.
