Black Friday Double Points Weekend!

Black Friday

Double Stronghold Points on all purchases made Friday, Saturday, and Sunday!  Stop by, stock up for all your holiday purchases, and get rewarded yourself.  If you’re not familiar with our Stronghold Membership program and rewards check it out!  Everyone earns points, so you don’t have to be a member, however members do earn more points and have more that they can spend them on.

We don’t do Double-Point-Days often, so get out here if you were planning a big purchase, or were considering starting up a new game/army/collection.  Don’t forget either that Red Card Members get even more out of a Double-Points day!  It will also be a great opportunity to grab some stuff for any games you discover on Saturday’s Demo Day!

Black Knight Games Toy & Games Drive

Toy & Games Drive

Black Knight Games has always enjoyed participating in generating support for great causes.  This year we are joining up with City Kidz: Gift of Christmas to do our best to make sure local kids throughout Hamilton enjoy their holidays regardless of some of the personal pressures often experienced by many and associated with the Christmas season.  To that end we are pleased to present the Black Knight Games Toy & Games Drive of 2013!

There are several ways that you can participate and help us make an impact:

1.  We are an official Drop-Off location for City Kidz: Gift of Christmas, so you can drop off any toys or games here regardless of where you bought them.  Remember that gifts are for boys and girls ages 12 and under.  Gifts should be new and unwrapped.

2.  You can purchase gifts at Black Knight Games to put in the Toy and Games Drive.  Any gift purchase you make to be put towards the Toy and Games Drive will be at 25% OFF to help you donate something great!

3.  Many of our tournaments in December will give you up to $10.00 OFF the entry fee when you donate a gift (of at least a $20 Value before discount and taxes).

This is our first attempt at a toy drive, and we really want it to succeed, so please consider contributing to our Toy & Games Drive and help us spread the Gift of Gaming this year!

Blood Bowl Exhibition League

Blood Bowl Exhibition League

The Leagues coming to an end, players head home to return to their normal lives, coaches are left panhandling for copper. Living the life of a blood bowl coach or player is a tough life.

Bod Biffered: “Bob Biffered here from the head office of the BKBBL, we have reports that Commissioner Awesome is about to call a special press conference.’

Commissioner Awesome:  “In a few weeks the BKBBL will have crowned a champion, lets hope it’s not WWF or the Hurdlers. But when this happens we are all out of work or back to our boring lives. I have come up with a solution for this… Hammer Bowl Season 4 Exhibition!”

BB: “Commissioner Awesome will you explain what this new league is?”

CA: “Sure Bob, The exhibition league will be there to allow coaches the chance to coach new teams or continue coaching their existing team. They will be able to continue playing games between seasons.”

BB: “Surely they won’t continue gaining experience for this?”

CA: “Why not Bob? Of course they will, this is an opportunity for the league to expand, new teams will get a chance to build up before they come into the Hammer Bowl and play the legends that currently make our league the best!”

BB: “I still don’t understand how this works.”

CA: “That’s because your an idiot, Each team will play an open league format, coaches are required to arrange their own matches, on the Black Knight Games Forums or in person.  They will only be able to play each coach once per week.  They can even manage multiple teams to try out different strategies!”

BB: “When does this league start, and is their a required fee to enter?”

CA: “We kick off November 11, 2013 and will end January 11th, 2014. that is 9 weeks for players to play games. there is a small maintenance fee for entry, in order to upkeep our fields. To start this league it will cost coaches $5.00, or $4.00 for Stronghold Members.

BB: “Will this replace the Rookie Tournament?”

CA: “NO!”

BB: “Anything else?”

CA: “Every coach is required to have their new teams submitted to the league by November 10,2013. You can leave your rosters at the store or email me your team, you will have 1,000,000 Gold to purchase your teams re-rolls, players, Fan Factor, Cheerleaders, Assistant Coaches and Apothecaries will all be purchased using this budget. All players are required to be named, as well you will have to have a team name set. There is an official sign up sheet at the store.  Remember, you may use any team registered in the BKBBL, and my use multiple teams”

If you have any questions or would like to email your roster to me please sbtim@blackknightgames.ca
