Inspired to go look after hearing that Barnes and Noble would be having a red dot clearance and that Risk: Legacy would be among the games starting at 50% off (spoiler alert: it's still Risk), I stopped by today.

They did indeed have a few tables of clearance items, but nothing really of note here in North Brunswick, NJ. However, there were a few games I had heard of, maybe you'll be more interested in them than I was:

Currently at 50% off, will drop to 75% off in a couple weeks and $2 a couple weeks after that were:

Munchkin Quest
Illuminati (By Steve Jackson, of some sort, I can't recall which set)
Seven Card Samurai
Adios Amigos
Killer Bunnies with the Blue Starter and Yellow Booster
Luck of the Draw
Time's Up! Title Recall!
Ligretto Dice
Word on the Street Junior

Among other various dreck. Dying to have that men's size XXL Angry Birds Sweatshirt? It's totally on sale.

I might pick up Word on the Street Jr. on Time's Up at 75% off, but probably not. I continue to pine for the days when I got Battlestar Galactica, Red November, and The Adventurers, among other games I actually wanted at these sales.

But YMMV, I guess, so go nuts.

Yeah, the year I picked up Gulo Gulo for $2 and Cosmic Encounter, Red November, and Masters of Venice for a total of about $20 was pretty awesome.

I did not really enjoy the selection of opoly games, angry birds gear, and old fantasy books. What a tiny little red dot section. It made me happy that they were a brick and mortar store. I thought our B and N might be different. It wasn't.

I did enjoy the Metavari cd on the way there "Be One of Us and Hear No Noise". But on the way back my wife made me listen to "I Will Stand" by Kenny Chesney. I'm not sure yet whether that was a fair trade.

I have a new appreciation for miniaturemarket, boardsandbits, thoughthammer, and so on. I like the auctions too.

Well, the terrible selection is due to B&N actually keeping their board game stock year round, instead of only stocking up for Christmas. I heard someone got CATAN 3D Collector's Edition for $2 after one of those sales back in those days.

Does anyone know when they drop the prices to 75% off? Is it one or two weeks after they start the clearance sale?

Thanks,

I kick myself for not picking up Gulo Gulo back then during the clearance sale. Didn't think I'd need many kids games, but I was wrong.

At my local B&N, they had many of the titles listed in the original post, but I also saw:

Alhambra

Hive

Same for the Fresh Meadows branch in NYC. Nothing but junk here with the single exception of What's My Word?

This is also a store with a larger than average game section. Ton of Mayfair, DoW, RGG, Z-Man, Steve Jackson etc. none of which is on sale. yuk

I saw that too. I used a 50% off coupon and got it for a buck.
Free gift wrapping too.

Nothing at Mira Mesa BN in San Diego. And by nothing I mean no games on clearance at all.

I just stopped at the B&N at Northgate Mall in Seattle and picked up the following;

Risk Legacy
Alhambra (both of which were the last copies as far as I could tell)
and Kings in the Corner

There was one copy of Munchkin Quest left but at half off of $50 it still seemed a bit pricy to me...

Other than several copies of What's My Word, the rest seemed like a lot of junk.

Of course even the sock monkey is non-standard color. Time's Up Total Recall is actually a very fun party game.
