Been waiting for the drop to snag my store's only copy of Eclipse, and just brought it home. Passed on a copy of Bears!.

just peek at the clearance table last weekend. They had Stomple & Liar's Dice. That was all I saw that was worthwhile. A week or two before they had Code 777. No Eclipse though.

When the sale hit 50%, I tried to put a copy of Eclipse on hold at my local store. They couldn't find a copy, but it still shows up as in-stock.

a) Does anyone think that a copy is hidden in the store anywhere? and
b) What are my chances of finding it?

Wouldn't have minded those but my store didn't have them. I got a Starcraft:Risk and the LOTR and Hobbit adventure games as potential gifts. Passed on the Hunger Games games and Buy Word because $9 still seemed too much even though I love word games.

I also saw piles of Walking Dead figures and KREO Transformers sets.

I checked one yesterday and did online searches today. No Eclipse (and not much for games at all in Peabody, MA location, though was a few themed Monopolies and some WoW starter decks).

Go to the store and ask several employees (don't rely on a phone call). Bring a picture of the game (or just show them on a mobile phone.) My reservation was denied 3 times during about a one week period all the while showing it was in stock. Apparently they couldn't find it. I was able to find it by going into the store. Though I had been to the store several times already, it just appeared one day in the clearance section.

So while it could be just an inventory error; it could also be misplaced and it could take a customer bringing that to their attention. Others had success (based on the previous 50% off Eclipse thread) by going in and asking around.

Didn't see LoTR in Phoenix B&N, but saw Code 777, several memory games, Square Off, and Ruckus, then I bought Square Shooters and Bears! SS was $3.95 and Bears! was $4.99.

a) A lot of times the reason they don't have it in stock is simple inventory errors. There is a chance it is sitting in a return pile or in a different section of the store.
b) Call the store. They will usually try to find the item for you, and you just ask them to hold it and pick it up at the front. We (unknowingly) bought our very first (overpriced) board (card) game in this manner.

Went to the Towson, MD store - plenty of puzzles and mind games, high end poker sets and Crosswise. No Eclipse, Code 777, etc.

Has anyone had luck getting Eclipse at the store even though it didn't show available online for that location?

If anyone is near NYC, there's an Eclipse left in the Staten Island B&N. I believe there's still a good assortment in the B&N near Chamber Street, they still have Code 777 and Hunger Games there.
