Alright, I totally respect that this post won't gain a huge amount of applause. However, somebody may be interested in this revamped classic that adds a wee bit more strategy to the original game. If nothing else, its a great starter game for kids.

Connect 4x4 is being offered in-store at Big Lots for $12 + Tax.

I saw five of them at my local store, and often Big Lots carry similar stock in all their stores.

For reference, now there are none left, which is why its always helpful to list all the relevant info, including a link, when you attempt to cross compare and allude to the possibility of there better price online.

Pesky things, like there only being one left in stock at Amazon at $12.81 is good to know as well, else you deter and/or redirect people with an incomplete picture.

Thanks for sharing this even though I have this game already. As for the game itself, I really enjoy this game. Sure, this game isn't a 30 minute game and over, but maybe 10-15 minute games at most, but I do think this game has a lot of strategy. As the topic starter said, there is even more strategy in this game than the first game. I bought this maybe 2 years ago when Target had a deal where you buy the game, and get a free card game with it - Scrabble Slam or Monopoly Deal plus I think there was a coupon for Connect 4X4 too.

Now as for the forum "Hot Deals", I don't think this is that hot of a deal, BUT it is a GOOD deal! I kind of wish there was a forum called Deals, and than one called HOT deals. A Hot Deal I consider around 40% or 50% off some game, or whatnot. However, I'm thankful that there are people like you that are saying that it's only $12 at Big Lots because I haven't been to Big Lots in awhile, and i would have never known that they are caring better games there. The regular price at Wal-Mart is $17.47.

No need to get so defensive. I was giving people point of reference. It's also possible people bought copies in 6 minutes between our posts. Go play a game and relax maybe

This being the internet and all it is hard to tell, but it seems like you may have gotten a little defensive over unveilmyeyes Amazon post.

Then it appeared that you were a little snarky when you mentioned: "which is why its always helpful to list all the relevant info."

I would say that there was plenty of relevant info you left out of your post. For instance what makes this a hot deal? Maybe you could have mentioned that Amazon also had 1 available at the same price as Big Lots. Maybe you could have mentioned what the MSRP was and/or posted some comparison stores.

Either way thank you for taking the time to make a hot deals post. And thank you unveilmyeyes for offering some comparison pricing.

I would not go so far as to say they are carrying better games, but occasionally they have something of marginal interest at a decent price. Last year I lucked out and and snagged Blokus Trigon for $13, so I figure its worth stopping in every 6-12 months when I have the extra 10 minutes, as its right on my way home anyway.

Awhile back I saw Rummikub there for decent price too, but as I said, they don't seem to normally have anything astonishing, and just the occasional marginal interest game.

If you can snag a free shipping code someplace, that will get you out of the $6.47 shipping, which would be even better. If you find one, please let me/us know. I would bite for $10 personally.

One could probably get free trial of shoprunner for free shipping at tru. Often I seee free year membership offers posted at sites that have slick/hot deals
