so anyone find Pokemon Conquest at TRU yet? i notice that the website says it can be shipped and picked up from store (no stores has it in stock around me or yet)... im hoping they are restocking it this week soon.
BB hasn't received many copies of the game; my local store has only received 5 copies thusfar.
My local store got a shipment in yesterday, and by the afternoon showed TheatRhythm in stock. Then I noticed Conquest was on backorder. I went to the store anyway, thinking that I'd just pick up a different 3rd game if they didn't have a copy.
Sure enough, they didn't. I asked one of the employees about it (the game is in this week's ad, after all). After checking their stock room, I found out about the limited quantity shipped out.
Employee tries to order Conquest through the website, and then tie it together with the 2 games I was buying. They'd ship to my house, and I'd still get the B2G1 deal. This requires a Manager override.
Manager comes over, sees that the game is backlogged in their system. According to him, they can't sell me a copy of a game they don't have. His solution: look through the system for another store with the game in stock, and have them ship it to this store.
Turns out, between the states of Wisconsin and Minnesota (where - I might point out - BB is headquartered), they have all of 2 copies of Pokemon Conquest in stock....both in the same store in Minnesota. After the employee making a series of calls to the Minnesota store (including being put on hold, and dealing with someone in the games department over there who didn't know how to do what he was being asked to do), they were finally able to sell me a copy of the game. I should be able to pick it up sometime in the next week.
tl;dr -- my apologies. Long story short....if they can track down a copy anywhere nearby, you can take advantage of the B2G1. Just expect it to take an hour for them to figure out how.
