I've spent all afternoon trying to buy one. Argos, Tesco, Toys R Us, The entertainer and Smyths all sold out.

I do appear to have managed to buy one from Asda for £19.99 though. Will let you know if it turns up.

They are up to £40 bloody quid on Amazon, and £25 plus on Ebay. angry

I don't know, so don't take this as gospel, but I have heard this suggested as an alternative to Pie Face, on another site.

www.thetoyshop.com/games-jigsaws/childrens-games/Splat!-Game/p/523949?gclid=CjwKEAiAvPGxBRCH3YCgpdbCtmYSJABqHRVwBun-sLRY5oR-tF_AROwb4kZTnxdCISnIlFZFLgdzQRoC4f3w_wcB

I am merely repeating what someone else said. I don't know either game myself I don't want to be responsible for disappointed children on Christmas Day but thought I would post in case it helps someone out. - The Entertainer do free click & collect too. smile

i dont get the lure of pie face personally?? What is it about it that kids want? i dont want cream in my face!!

I got one from the entertainer 3 days ago (had new delivery)
It's this years thing, they'll get more in.

I'm glad none of mine have asked for this yet then!

I'm steal shaking from the trauma of finding a Lucy two years ago & a bloody singing Elsa last year! I got both in the end but not without a few extra grey hairs!

We bought it for a Halloween party a few weeks ago. All DH's work friends have gone crazy and have bought/looking to buy one for themselves. Is it really that big a craze?

Givinguph0pe Fri 06-Nov-15 18:24:41

It's shit - don't bother!!

DameMargaretOfChalfont Fri 06-Nov-15 19:14:54

Never heard of it but, because I'm bloody nosey, out of interest I searched our local Argos stores - out of stock at all stores within a 10 mile radius.

Mind you it's got excellent online reviews.

Hope your order turns up Cat

Bought one months ago.

DC Love it and beg to play it all the time. It's fucking messy and annoying.

ALemonyPea Fri 06-Nov-15 19:22:27

Keith, I ordered from Asda and was surprised how quick it was delivered.

Can't wait to play it.

Beth2511 Fri 06-Nov-15 19:32:02

I got it a month or two back, glad as it seems to be out of stock within 20 miles of here!

AnneEyhtMeyer Fri 06-Nov-15 20:31:55

I got one in The Entertainer today. They apparently got a delivery of 12 today and I got the last one off the shelf.

DD played with one at a friend's house a couple of weeks ago and hasn't stopped talking about it since.

CatThiefKeith Sat 07-Nov-15 09:38:40

I know it's going to be messy, and dd will drive me nuts to play it constantly, but other than a frozen bedroom it is the only thing she's actually asked for. Had no idea it was going to be such a sell out! shock

OvO Sat 07-Nov-15 11:38:05

I have one supposedly reserved in Argos - pickup tomorrow/Monday. Fingers crossed it's actually there! Can't believe it's so hard to get.

Pixi2 Sat 07-Nov-15 15:17:05

Pantone- yes. I hate it already. DC love it. I save it for their friends them I'm not roped into playing, only supplying friggin endless towels!

Notthecarwashagain Sat 07-Nov-15 15:35:35

Amazon have it for £14.59. In stock November 14.

Notthecarwashagain Sat 07-Nov-15 15:39:30

Gone again! Sorry blush

FixItUpChappie Sat 07-Nov-15 15:47:07

I just looked at a YouTube review....the man and his son were peeing themselves laughing which was quite infectious.

That said I think it would be fun to play with your kids exactly....once.

Buttercupsandaisies Sat 07-Nov-15 16:18:59

Just got one today for normal price, my local smyths got small delivery this morning for store pick up only.....most were gone by the time I got there at 1pm!

trixymalixy Sat 07-Nov-15 16:21:41

I pray that my kids don't get to hear of this!!

Notthecarwashagain Sat 07-Nov-15 19:28:22

Sorry to sound like broken record, but back on Amazon 14.59. Just pre ordered one- I moved quicker this time!

1122christy Sat 07-Nov-15 20:28:32

I ordered this on very this morning so worth a check, they have 20% off their toys at the moment so the game was £16.
Postage is either £3.99 or free click & collect from various shops.
I was given by them a free delivery code but unsure if just for me, but worth a try its 6LQVU

OvO Mon 09-Nov-15 15:12:45

I got mine! fgrin

Really thought I'd get told it wasn't in since Argos has been having "technical issues" for a few days.

CatThiefKeith Mon 09-Nov-15 15:36:24

Yay! Well done OvO. My guess is that people are buying multiples to put on EBay etc. bastards. angry

Buttercupsandaisies Mon 09-Nov-15 19:48:32

My local smyths were defo reserving it to one per customer but I suppose nothing to stop them going in again which is sad really
