First off, let me welcome you all to the new guide thread. Second, I'd like to ask you all to please keep conversations not pertaining to guide drops or which ones you've grabbed to a minimum to avoid cluttering the thread. It's not that I don't enjoy the chit chat, but that it may stop others from locating information on the newest drops.

That being said, let me thank Cheapy for creating this site, without which I would've spent probably 10 times what I HAVE spent on games and guides. Moreover, let me thank each and every one of my fellow CAGs for continuing to contribute to making this site a great place to find out about sales and clearances of the items we as gamers use most. Without a great community, NONE of this would be possible.

Furthermore, I would like to thank our Wiki editors HeatDolphin and Rocko for updating the Wiki. Great job.

Now, with that out of the way(and before I get to rambling), let's get on to making this new thread.

Useful Information(and links):

PLEASE keep ALL trade requests in there or PM's. Thank you.

Reduced Price Guide Discussion Thread(KEEP ALL DISCUSSION NOT RELATED TO GUIDE DROPS HERE!!!)
http://www.cheapassgamer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=169252

Guide Lists(master drop lists and recent drops):

Master Drop List(by store, alphabetically):
http://wiki.cheapassgamer.com/index.php/Category:Strategy_Guides_%28master_lists%29

Recent Guide Drops(by date,also check the second post in this thread):
http://wiki.cheapassgamer.com/index.php/Category:Strategy_Guides_%28recent_drops%29

What is the purpose of this thread?

The purpose of this thread is to let our fellow CAGs know when a guide has dropped to a low price(it's NOT ALWAYS A PENNY), so they can go out and grab guides for themselves and for trading with other CAGs.

Anytime you have guide drops to report, post them here. Please specify at which store you found them and which guides you found and list them in alphabetical order. Thank you.

What are penny guides?

Penny guides are guides which have been on the market for a while and the publisher(or store chain) decide that the remaining stock of these guides have little to no chance of selling, so they issue an order to pull them from the shelves and destroy them. At that time, they are also marked as .01 in their inventory system, except in the case of BBV, which marks them .01 only AFTER pulling them.

Most stores have an agreement with the publisher that states that if they destroy the remaining stock of those items, they will receive a credit for their value from the publisher. This is why many stores are usually annoyed when we CAGs come in and buy the guides AT the penny price, since otherwise they would've received a full credit for those items.

According to an employee at a local BB, they also have a recycling program for the pennied stock, so as to not clutter landfill space with the guides. As to how true it is, I cannot confirm, but I would hope that the paper is at least recycled instead of just dumpstered.

Thanks to floormat, Guinavere and anyone else who has created and maintained the guide thread before, as well as to all of those who find out either advance information on drops or provide a list of which ones dropped when we do have a drop.

The post below this one contains a list going back at LEAST six months of the more current guide drops, which stores they occured at and which ones dropped. Note that sometimes(Oblivion guide, Quake Wars: Enemy Territory)there are multiple versions of a guide, be it that there are Prima versions, Brady versions and the occasional Nintendo and Doublejump guides.

Please specify WHICH version has dropped when mentioning possible guide drops. Thank you.

At my Gamestop, they gave me a $0.01 Frontlines: Fuel of War for free. Not a bad score, but I don't have the game so it is on my trade list.

Trying to sneak a new thread in on me, eh? That usually means I end up missing a drop or two (as I just watch the old one forever and forget about it as it slips deeper and deeper into my subscribed thread list).

But I missed that June 2 drop, anyway. I need to get me a C&C3 guide as I actually have the game and was planning on playing it soon. Seems like the kind of thing I still have a good chance of finding, though, so I'll check out the Best Buys when I'm near them.

Thanks a lot :bomb:

Got (1) Dawn of Mana: "I can't believe I missed that" - the manager, and (2) Battalion Wars II: "Where did you get these? You're never going to believe what the total is ($0.02). How did you know they were a penny? (Lucky guess!)" - Clerk at store #2 (both Gamestop :P)

For some reason, it feels almost like stealing when I grab these. The people working always look at you funny.

Mmmmm, according to the .com, Frontlines is still $16.99 but it's listed as Currently Not Available Online. If they are showing that only because it's pennied in stores, then Halo 3, Zelda: Phantom Hourglass blue hardcover, Mass Effect, WoW Second Edition, Final Fantasy 12, and Pro Evo Soccer 2008 might have also dropped. MGS4 LE and Condemned 2 are also not available but somehow I don't see those dropping just yet...

Game Crazy dropped a few guides about a week or so ago. It's not much, but it's something:

Castlevania Portrait of Ruin
http://ecx.images-am...L500_AA240_.jpg

Tony Hawk Proving Ground
http://ecx.images-am...L500_AA240_.jpg

Dragon Quest VIII
http://ecx.images-am...L500_AA240_.jpg

Guitar Hero 2 (my favorite guide because it is sooooooooo useless!)
http://ecx.images-am...L500_AA240_.jpg

Like I said, it's not much...but as we get more down the pipes I'll keep ya updated.

HAs anyone confirmed that the frontlines guide has indeed been pennied at GS? My local one still has a couple I could grab when I go to the bank.

THERE WAS A GS DROP YESTERDAY

I just got off the phone with my girlfriend, she told me Folklore and Eternal Sonata were amongst them and would be texting me the full list later.

Can't wait for the update!! Picked up a Xenosaga ep. III at GameCrazy. The guy said I could have it instead of buying it for a penny.

I guess it's true that corporate doesn't want to see $0.01 transactions, or it's just not worth their time.

I know Frontlines and Folklore dropped yesterday since I pulled them myself. Sadly, individual stores don't get the entire price drop list, only titles in stock so I don't know the full extent. GDI if Eternal Sonata went down since our store is sold out :/

I found Folklore and 2 Eternal Sonata's and Frontlines and Umbrella Chronicles at my GS today.
Only left with both ES's (and I already have one) a Hellboy keychain and Guitar Hero Headphones.

edit real fast:
I stop in regularly if anyone needs what they got.

The full list from what I was told by a GS store manager I asked was a short one:
Eternal Sonata
Folklore
Frontlines: Fuel of War
a spyro guide of some sort (can't remember)

I ended up with a folklore and a frontlines, as the rest were already long gone.

Today, I am told, Orange Box pennied out at GameStop, as well as Pro Evolution Soccer and some other stuff.

I'll update when I verify, probably by 4 PM.

Quick question for you guys in the know: I had an employee at Best Buy scan a hardcover Twilight Princess guide for me thinking it would be a penny, but it rang up at $14.99.
If it makes any difference, the number on the receipt is 8631359? Did she scan the wrong barcode, or is this not the right guide?

Also...seeing as it apparently hasn't dropped yet, when will it? I'd love to nab that guide.

Nobody knows when certain guides will drop. I don't understand your first question, however, about scanning the wrong barcode. You say you know it hasn't dropped, so I'm not sure what the issue is???

I can verify the PES 2008 guide being a penny, the manager at my local EB gave me one today. Also, Rock Band is a penny at EBStop, along with some Sims guide, and I think a Tomb Raider for Wii guide.

I remember the brown ones, I bought two of them. That was like the only score I ever found at a best buy.

There's actually 2 versions of the Twilight Princess hardcover guide Actually, I believe there were 3-4 if you count the Wii and Gamecube versions as wholly seperate.

Best Buy has a brown(tan) and gold covered one with a sheet of paper shrinkwrapped to the back of the guide saying that it covers NEW things, so you likely found the REVISED version they released.


Just to clarify, no Zelda guides have been pennied at BB except for twilight princess gamecube (brown softcover), right?

i talked to a clerk at my BB yesterday and he said that they had a bunch of pennied out guides in the back and at some point they were just going to release them to the public and let them have at them...although he wouldn't tell me specifically what day they were planning on releasing them...sad...but i did manage to get 2 Halo 2 (PC) pennied out guides, a Hellgate London, and The Sims 2: Bon Voyage for a total of 4 pennies :-D
