Thanks OP for the link to BGG website....

Buy anyone who have personal experience with these games?
P.S. : if you find lots of spelling mistakes in my above comment. This is what happens when you use the physical Keyboard (Blackberry) your whole life and then you have to settle with a virtual Keyboard.

They have had these games on the shelves for over a year.
They are stinkers except maybe Captain Sonar...but there is a better version of that game so that is what people play.

From a guy that has bought a lot of games I give this warning:
Stay away from the bargain bin! These games are about 80% off for a reason.

If you are buying for a kid get something they will play will pay.

Captain Sonar deserves a higher rating from board game geek, but so does Shadows Amsterdam. They’re both well worth more than $5

I have bought all of these from PA within the last year at bargain prices, and as of yet I’ve only played Sonar and Shadows: Amsterdam, but they are both fantastic games.

Shadows in particular is a far better version of Codenames!

I'm in for Sonar and Shadows. Rumble looks like a nice little filler game but I also think Tortoise and the Hare does the same "I want my secret animal to win the game" mechanic better.

+1 for sonar. Picked it up during last clearance from PA and have thoroughly enjoyed it. Similar but Way more engaging than battleship.

Its bgg rating is really 6.2.
1400 ppl voted and gave it s 6.7

Spend a bit more money and get a better rated version or may this is the version you like.

Plenty of 6 year old girls will insist Candyland is under rated.

I think most of the other games will sit in a closet.

That’s cool. Princess Auto should carry more unique random stuff but neat brand name stuff. Kinda like how Dollarama carries “brand name” stuff randomly.

They’ll probably get more people in their stores too. Not sure if that’s the clientele they are aiming for though. But Dollarama is double the size of PA

Have you ever been in the store? If not, you should check it out.

They actually don't sell any car parts. The car related things they do have have more to do with trailering.
You can't buy a transmission or a window or whatever but you can buy a trailer axle or a trailer tire.

They have a butt ton of tools for working on a car though. Their house brand (Power Fist) is actually pretty okay. The best part is that even though it's cheap, it's guaranteed forever.

But yeah outside of their regularly stocked items there's a huge surplus section. It's really random what you'll find in store.
Do you not have anything else to do rather than argue with strangers on the internet
Nope. That's why I'm on the internet arguing with strangers. If I had anything better to do I'd probably be doing it.

Just want to make a note here that Sonar is not the same as Captain Sonar.

Sonar is a 4p variant of Captain Sonar, which can fit 8.

That being said, if you like the core gameplay of Captain Sonar, you may find Sonar fun.

Two items.. one giant box. and yeah Sonar isn't a renamed Captain Sonar but the smaller version of Captain Sonar. :shrug: I enjoy CS i'm sure Sonar will be easier to get out. Still satisfied.
