Just popped in to the TKMaxx store at The Galleria, Hatfield, and had a nice surprise ...
they had:
Beowulf: The Legend for £9.99 (rrp £29.99)
Mensa Connections for £6.99 (rrp £19.99)
Colossal Arena £4.99 (rrp £9.99)
somewhere must be having a Knizia clearout!

They also had:
Apples to Apples for £5.99 (rrp £14.99)

Only a few copies of each ... some in the kids/toy section, others on a column display.
They also had quite a few copies of the LOST boardgame but can't remember the price, possibly £9.99.

For anyone that's interested!

Got back from work and saw this post, jumped straight back in the car and drove for 3 minutes to get to my nearest TK Max (just to make sure I got there before closing)...Took me a while to find 'em (cos they were over in the mens gifts, golf-balls and boxer shorts etc.) but I came away with a copy of Beowulf and Minotaur Lords (no Colossal Arena unfortunately).... Pretty happy as I have been considering these two games for a while now....

I saw it in two places; one with the kids games and the other with a general gifts section (along with the usual drinking games, party games and gadgets) where I also found Beowulf.

Other games I didn't get apart from those already mentioned:

Mensa Connections: £6.99
Heroscape: £14.99 (unfortunately not a match for Argos's recent blowout).
Hotels: £5.99 (IIRC - alright for a gift).
Ghost Castle: £5.99 (as above).
24 DVD Game: £? (didn't check price, not interested)
A couple of Front Porch titles (I think they were League of Pirates and some word game I can't remember the name of).

TK-Maxx is becoming a good source; I'll be keeping my eye on that store.

Quite coincidently I visited my local TK Maxx in Speke (Liverpool) today (before I saw these posts) and I found a copy a mensa connections, david and golliath and Apples to Apples. Because of the chaotic shelf stacking I cant be sure in saying there are any copies of david and golliath left but there was certainly one Apples to Apples; one mensa connections and three copies of Cirondo (there was a copy of Impact also).

Checked southend out a couple of weeks ago after the post on here about a cheap Blokus style game. Alas they had only rubbishy games there. Have they got new stock in now then do you know, or is this just whats in the various stores out of the old batch.

There have been a couple of items of interest since last Christmas, when Mensa Connections first appeared (IIRC), but this is the best selection yet.

If only a crate-load of discounted Nexus Ops would hit these shores. They seem to be giving them away in the States.

I just had a look in the Manchester city centre branch and they had:

In the Men's section
Colossal Arena £5
Minotaur Lords £5
Return of the Heroes £10

They also had a copy of Beowulf for £10

In the Kids' section
Heroscape expansions £4 each
Ingenious £7

Well worth a look at those prices!

Blimey, thats great, hard enough to find expansions let alone at £4! Unfortunately, its pot luck at TK Maxx what stock they have when you turn up.

Is TK Maxx related to the TJ Maxx/ Marshalls chains in the US?

From what I understand, they're the same company. However, I've never seen any of the deals they talk about here at my local TJ Maxx.

Very frustrating.

Just got Beowulf and David & Goliath from the Hammersmith 'Super' TK Maxx. They were the only copies that I could find.

They've definitely got Colossal Arena in the Mens Gifts section on the first floor and Apples to Apples, Heroscape sets and Ingenious (Mensa Connections) in the toy section on floor 2.

Fingers crossed Southampton will have Return of the Heroes and it's expansion tomorrow!

Just been to the Stafford TK MAxx and picked up:

Return of the Heroes and Under the Shadow of the Dragon.

They had a copy of Beowulf, 2 colossal arenas and 1 minotaur lords in the men's section and lots of apples to apples and mensa connections in the kids bit. They also had a game called League of Pirates which looks great but is apparently a bit rubbish according to the review on here.
