    That sounds like a fantastic deal! I have a feeling you'll be hard pressed to find several of those games in stock in any of the stores though, especially Mario Kart DS, Tetris, Phoenix Wright etc.

    Better get in there fast!

    Just whizzed down to Woolworths near my office, Tetris wasn't in stock but I scored Phoenix Wright & Mario Kart (at last, a copy for the missus!) for £13 each. Absolute bargain, and thanks to the OP!

    Just got down to the local Woolies and found the stand tucked away where no-one could see......really only wanted Tetris, but out of the other available stock, Nanostry seemed the best option - have heard some good reviews, but not sure what it is like - guess I can always trade it in/seel it if it ain't no good

    Did have a couple of mario Karts left - interestingly hidden behind the non-sale GBA games - so obviously I did the right thing and brought them to the front of the display for everyone to see.....

    Good bargain though - never go in woolies otherwise - used to work there - flashbacks...:D

    Thankies for the pointer, first stop in my lunchbreak was Woolies!

    After actually locating the stock (burried in with the usual PS2 stock) managed to pick up Phoenix Wright and Tetris DS. Nice!

    If anyone happens to have a spare copy of Phoenix Wright and Tetris laying around their local Woolies I would be most appreciative if they could pick it up for me...:smashin:

    Have a closer look, I went to the usual DS section in Woolworths, and the majority of the games mentioned above weren't labelled. Round the corner with the PS2 section and their 2 for £26, the DS & GBA discounted games were all there. If in doubt, ask the staff. I took Tetris & Mario Kart to the counter, Tetris wasn't in stock, didn't see Phoenix Wright on any of the shelves, but I asked her if it was part of the offer, she had a look through the drawer and there it was :)

    Thankfully my normally skanky Woolworths has just had a nice refit....everything in the offer in stock :D

    So blew £52 :eek:

    Great offer, shame I had the DS titles I wanted (except for Phoenix Wright)....the kids gained with the GBA titles :)

    Yes, my mate went to Woolies and got Tetris and MK (only 1 of each left). It was priced at £29.99 each, but the till brought up £26 for the 2.

    Sorry dodger... just tried mine again and none in stock now.

    When they throw in three great titles like Tetris, MK, and PWAA then they certainly do go quick (almost like a Game online special *rotf*)

    No probs...

    I've tried my two local Woolies and I went up to Southport earlier and they still didn't have any. The only game that I have seen which is even worth picking up is Nanostray.

    The money I've spent on petrol probably negates any savings made on the games anyway...:suicide: :smashin:

    Seriosuly though, if anyone spots PW and Tetris I will buy them off you.:thumbsup:

    I just visited the Woolies in Camden, London and the usual story no stickers or stock but I asked at the counter and got both Tetris DS and the last Phoenix Wright:AC for £26!! The cashier was even surprised as she didn't think they were in the offer!! :smashin:

    My local (Northampton) really does seem to have loads of stock. I think it has only recently been refitted (certainly a lot of Suits walking around in there today). If you are still strugling, or anyone else, I can pick them up.

    You guys should try ringing the stores (see website) before traveling and reserving the games, they were fine about it as long as i picked them up same day.

    Paypal fees @ 3.4%+ 20p = £1.15
