I was in randomly in Target today and found this for $14.98 in clearance. I do not know if this was awesome or not but thought some of you would like to find this. Now that I'm thinking about it, I'm probably the only one left who didn't own any Axis & Allies game.

Sorry if this is not in all Targets, I found this in a San Bernardino County Target

That's a pretty good deal. I own almost all the AA games, with the exception of this one and the most recent version that has come out. You can look at this games reviews and check out what people think. My issue is that I own the Anniversary Edition and none of them compare to that IMHO.

Thanks for the post though, I might check Target out in my area today and see.

Yeah, Target appears to be replacing Axis & Allies: 1942 with Catan, 4th edition.

Well different people will give you conflicting feedback. This version of A&A has a few different rules and the pieces are slightly altered. This happens each time they release a new version of the game. Similar to James Bond, each group of A&A fans tend to prefer the version they were introduced to the best.

Many people I talk to lately seem to prefer the Axis & Allies Revised version better. In truth the A&A series is a great series of games overall. Plus with he added benefit of all the alternate versions and rules being available here at Geekdo, you can find endless fun with A&A.

For $15.00 you can't go wrong, and if you don't like the rules just get a copy of an older set of rules from a different version and use those to alter game play.

Edit: typos.

Yeah. My Target made the same switch within the last few weeks. However, they only have A&A 1942 on a %30 clearance for $21... I too will wait for at least %50 off.

On a side note, I snagged the Catan card game at my target for $4. A %75 clearance according to the sticker. I asked an employee if there were any more, but she said it was an online only item. Apparently someone returned their online order to my store and they just threw it out on clearance.

There were two copies at one Target near me. Marked down to $20.98 (30% off). Got one at that price, and will check again periodically to see if/when the other copy drops further in price.

I grabbed a couple of these at the Lake Street Target in Minneapolis a few days ago. There were some left and they aren't marked as on sale. It says $30 on the shelf but I scanned it and it came up half off.

Is there some sort of clearance area in Targets? I checked a couple of local stores and didn't see anything on the shelves.

The copies I found were in the toy clearance section in the toy area. They were not with the other board games.

At mine they have the clearance games on the end displays of the aisles of the toy section.....not mixed in with the regular price games. I didn't find one the first time I went then remembered someone here mentioned the clearance section.

Same here. Board games are on the back wall, and on two of the end caps facing the board game wall there were clearance toys, including the games.

Thanks. I found 2 today; they were, at most, ten feet away from where I was looking before.


The good news is that, thanks to my complete ineptitude, the price had gone down to $7.48 each by the time I found 'em.

Yep.

I've watched them fall over the past few weeks and just picked it up for 7.48 yesterday myself.

Only downside to waiting was the damage someone did to the box in the meantime.
