I've seen a few other people post this a few months ago, that their B & N were discounting their X-Wing stock. Just wandered in to buy a core set as a gift and found their entire X-wing stock 50% off. So yeah, I bought it all...

 

I've gathered that it really depends on the store manager and what they want to give shelf-space to, so it's worth checking out from time to time.

 

Good luck.

Careful, man.
For some reason, when people read "My Barnes & Nobel is having a sale,"
they think it means
"Post every store that is NOT having a sale."
Or
"Post your opinion on buying XWM from Barnes & Nobel instead of your LGS."
:rollseyes:

It's a strange phenomena...
But I am glad you got to reap the benefits of B&N XWM discounts as well! :D

Yes - I mean you should all go check out every B & N within driving distance - and if none of them is discounting their x-wings, I will take personal responsibility.

People posted on which stores weren't having sales because that info may help their fellow players know whether it's worth the drive, especially at a time when it was still unknown whether this was going to be a national thing or not.

Barnes and Noble sales need to be added to the list of weekly threads:

 

Fix the TIE Advanced

Will FFG Make a Star Destroyer

We need sub sections

Wave X Speculation

X is on the Boat!

and now finally:
My Barnes and Noble rocks!  Too bad yours doesn't!

To sell them, of course.  ;)

^an unfortunate result of driving to their local b&n and finding everything at full price.

I think FFG should add a Star Destroyer to the game.

No, star destroyers are a mile long and have 60 turbolasers as well as 60 Ion cannons. It would have like 80 attack and 100 hitpoints.

I think the Star Destroyer should be a third faction that's a B&N exclusive. It will come with a new damage deck, and will also actually be a boat.

It will come with a fixed TIE Advanced that makes Expose worth it.

Don't forget that it will also only be worth 1 Epic Point, so you will definitely need to buy 5 of them, as it will come with every unique card ever released to date.

Quite so - peasants (who procreate in barns) should not mingle with aristocrats (nobles).

 

In other opinion: Go buy from your FLGS.
