New Calendar: May 2012

Avacyn Restored Pre-Releases 3 & 4 Have Been Cancelled

I have some unfortunate news to announce.  Black Knight Games had been planning on running four pre-release events for Avacyn Restored, however due to an unfortunate error we were not shipped enough booster packs to cover all four events!

We have checked all of the options, however it does not seem that we will be able to fix the problem in time.

As a result, we must unfortunately cancel our Avacyn Restored Pre-Release on Saturday night (7pm start) as well as the Sunday event (12pm start).

I am truly sorry for this.  Everyone that has pre-registered will get their money back, and will be given the Promo-Card as well as the swag from the Hellvault for free.  We will also note that you have $5.00 credit towards any future event that we hold.

This is not a common thing for us, and though it was not directly our error that caused the situation I am nonetheless extremely sorry for the situation.

Call to Arms: Dystopian Wars

The Warhammer Call to Arms event still has a few weeks remaining before the deadline, but it is now the time to look forward to the following C2A event, which will begin the day after the current one ends on Monday, April 23rd.  Dystopian Wars will finally have its turn in the light, and it should be one of our easiest Call to Arms as the game only requires a small number of ships.

So heed this call to arms, get yourself some experimental weapons and mount them on your battleships!
