Fellow BGG'ers. Barns and Nobel has Eclipse on clearance at 75% off coming to a grand total of $24.99. If you get the right person, they will ship it for free also (they usually have free shipping at $25.00). These are going fast, so get on it if you want this game for the cheapest price you will likely ever see. You may need to call many stores to find one, but your patience and persistence will hopefully pay off.

May the Gaming Gods be with you, good luck.

I already have a copy.
But thanks for sharing.
Hope this helps someone get a copy.

Website shows out of stock online, looks like store pickup is only option if you can find one that still has it.

Not true Harvie. I ordered a "back up" copy for myself and they are shipping it tomorrow $24.99 out the door. I had to call around to several stores and have someone search the clearance table for me, but they found one, and shipped it for free.

Just remember to be super nice to anyone who answers the phone and greet them with a smile (you can definitely hear a smile). A bit of kindness goes a long way in retail.

Good luck!

So I checked online an the 3 stores Closest to me are out of stock...

Is there Online inventory always right? Or did the stores you called say they had it in stock online?

I may have to Visit all three Just in case!

Thanx

I called around to different stores. They won't have the inventory online. Someone will need to check. I don't think the store would need to be local as long as they will ship. I imagine if you are willing to put in the time calling stores, you would find one somewhere.

I have been doing this in in the NC, SC, GA and VA area. I even had a thread up for a copy in Wilmington I have on hold as I found one more conveniently near a friend in VA. I can tell you there are none in SC, GA or NC (outside of the one in have on hold). VA has about 3 available. CO, where I looked for a fellow geek, has 2 I think. Now these are the ones that are showing as in stock for the store...not sure what would happened if you called...they don't seem to understand the value of the game. Happy Hunting!

Just ordered mine from a B&N near Chicago. Had to pay for shipping, unfortunately--around $6--but just under $33 shipped for this game is still a fantastic price!

As far as I can tell there might not be a copy left in the U.S. at Barnes and Noble now? If any finds a copy they don't need pm me I am having no luck. Only one store had it so far and they have it on hold for someone already.

They show full price. When I did the Pick Up At Store for my friend to grab it showed as 99.99 during the reserve. When he grabbed it? 24.99.

Also all gone, I was the 5th person calling today.

406-586-5360 Just sold last copy 1 minute before I called (she thought it was funny).

406-452-3299 Last copy was on hold for someone.

All the stores in my area are cleaned out.

Sorry to hear that, though it sounds like a fair number of people are on the hunt. Good luck with your search!

Thanks, I'll just have to survive with my old beat up copy I figured for $25 I would grab a spare, then it became a bit of a mission... too much time on my hands...

Man.
Just thought about that.
Would have been great, if for nothing else than having extra tiles to make custom ones.

If theres anyone that has a copy they might want to part out, or want to get a copy and then part it out, GM me.

Just an FYI - there are some still out there! I found one in Tyler Texas. They did charge $4.99 shipping, but still a good deal. (I'm in Indiana)

Also, one store in Carbondale, IL told me to check back in about 3 or 4 days. I guess even though these are now considered "clearance", they still will be receiving them from regional warehouses.

You may also try leaving your name for a call-back; a couple of stores offered to do so.

Good luck!

Thanks OP, I just scored two copies for $50 total shipped. I had to call about 20 stores but I got lucky and found one that had two copies. I had given up when they all disappeared in my area till I saw this post. Here is some for the heads up.

Thanks Thomas!

I am glad to see that it has benefited many of you. Two copies for less than the price of one is a great move. You have yourself some killer gifts to the right person, or a lifetime supply of replacement Eclipse parts.

Chris will most likely go down in Eclipse history as scoring the cheapest brand new copy from a retailer ever.
