MTG: Modern Masters Order

Modern MastersBlack Knight Games has gained access to some additional Modern Masters Booster Boxes.  These are very rare and their price continues to climb.  The additional boxes will cost us considerably more than the first waves did, however we will be taking orders over the next six days to give you access to them.

If you are interested you can drop by the store or call it in.  We will only by selling full boxes, not individual packs and will require payment in full.  We should be able to fulfill most orders however they will be on a first come – first serve basis if we aren’t able to get the full number.  If we are unable to get you your box we will issue you a full refund.  Normally we aren’t as strict as this, but this is a temporary opportunity, and the margin on them is very slim.

The price on the full box will be $285.00

The absolute deadline to order will be this Sunday, July  28th, at 5:00pm.

Delivery will be shortly after the deadline, so if you are interested order yours soon!

Additionally we will be opening up a couple of boxes to sell as single booster packs immediately.  So, if you want a few packs drop by the store right away before they are gone!

This Weekend Will Be Crazy!

WMH: 50 Point Steamroller August 3rd

It’s almost August already?  That happened quickly.  Well Warmachine and Hordes players, after a couple of exciting events in the last few months we’re ready to break out the old-school and run a standard 50 point steamroller event.  There’s something classic about this year’s well designed scenarios and more relaxed Deathclock timing system option.

So if Hardcore was too hardcore, or if you’re just the kind of guy who can’t get enough big robots smashing into raging beasties, make this an event to come out to.  We’ve got a great group of players, excellent prize support, and a swanky store to make a real day of it.

When: Sat, August 3rd, 10:30am – 7:00pm.  We will be going four rounds and using Deathclock timing and Steamroller 2013 scenarios.

Game Size: Games will be played with 50 point may include a second list.  If you bring a second list it must abide by Character Restrictions.

Entry Fee: $20.00 ($16 for Stronghold Members) per person, which includes two pop and pizza lunch.

Prizes:  Store credit and coins will be awarded to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place overall.  Additionally a prize will be raffled off among all players who bring at least one fully painted list.

Bring:  Yourself.  If you’re coming to the second pre-release on Sunday, bring a partner too!

What You Get:  6 Booster packs to build a deck with on site.  If you win at least three games, you’ll also win prizes from the store (more M14 boosters!).  As if this wasn’t exciting enough, everyone also gets a cool Prerelease card (pictured: right).

Prizes:  Every pre-release BKG has always gone above and beyond in handing out prizes, both plentiful and deep in the final standings.  As always, we’ll be giving away some random boosters to participants, so make sure to stay to the end of your event.  What’s more, this is the first opportunity to earn packs from the core set that does not release until later this month.
