Maybe I should plan a vacation. If I drive up to toronto, buy multiple copies of each and ebay them I could make enough to pay the $100 in gas and I know a hotel right next to chinatown that's only about 50 u.s. a night.

Well frankly I am as confused about this sale as everyone else here... if someone could (that is in the know) please make a list of the games and their corresponding days that would be awesome. Having said that apparantly today is only battalion wars and odama is next week. Hopefully this thread: http://www.redflagde...ad.php?t=301179 can help someone else out as well. (PS RFD is a great site for canadian deals for those who don't already know)

I just saw the list at my local EB and it appeared all of the games will have at least 2 days that they'll be on sale. This sale will be going on for 40 days, each with two different games. Because the list was so long I couldn't memorize any dates but I do remember some of the more memorable titles so I'll list them here and people can feel free to post any I missed (which is plenty I'm sure).

Mario Tennis (GBA)
DK King of Swing (GBA)
City of Villains (PC)
Odama (GC)
Battallion Wars (GC)
Metroid Pinball (DS)
Ape Escape 3 (PS2)
Rainbow Six 3 (XB & PS2)
DK Jungle Beat (GC)
Donkey Konga 2 (GC) -> both games WITHOUT drums according to the manager

Well I bought Odama for 10 dollars today (tuesday June 13th), and it IS both Odama and Battallion Wars for the day. I'm going to go check out the deal tomorrow and ask the employees if they can tell me some upcoming games/dates.

If anyone picked up an extra Odama or Battalion Wars for sale I might be interested if shipping rates don't go too high.

Supposidly this sale is going on for the next 37 days, with each day offering different games. They said they have a list of the games, but wouldn't show me. Somebody needs to get that list and type it out here.

According to the guy at my local EB, tommorow's game is Jak X: Combat Racing for PS2. He also said they're only doing about one copy of each game at that price on each day, and also said that the sale only applies if they have a lot of stock of the game sitting around. If they only have a few copies, they can choose not to do the sale for that day. Having said all that, I'm not entirely sure if this really only applies to the one I went to or all of the stores since the one I went to isn't in the best location.

EDIT: Someone on redflagdeals.com is saying that tommorow's game is Getaway: Black Sunday. The manager at the store I went to only mentioned Jak X, but it could be both of them I guess. The thread in question was linked earlier in this thread here.
