Board Game Day

Board Game Day May

Join us on Saturday, May 3rd for a day of Board Gaming!  All day long at Black Knight Games we will be playing all sorts of great games.

Register a Game:

If there is a specific game that you love playing, but often have a hard time assembling enough people to play (like Twilight Imperium, Battlestar Galactica or Diplomacy for example) you can register the game with us, and we will add a sign up sheet on our billboard to get players to sign-up for vacant spots.  Likewise be sure to check out the in store signup lists to see if any of the available games appeal to you!

Play Pick-Up Games:

There will be plenty of great games available just to pick up and play, and plenty of players looking for games.  So be sure to show up even if you haven’t pre-registered for any games!  We have a huge board game selection, and players are more than welcome to bring their own games too!

Leftover Promos:

We have a pile of leftover promos and goodies remaining from our massive Table Top Day last month – and we would love to find a way to give them to some deserving gamers!  Join us for a chance at some free goodies!

If you enjoyed our International Table-Top Day event last month (and if you attended you probably did because it was a blast!) then this is the event for you!  Join us for more board gaming, and help us keep the board game scene at BKG thriving!!!

Hero’s Rewards

We are continuing our popular Hero’s Reward program through the Journey into Nyx pre-releases!  Here is a reminder of how they work:

How Do I Earn Hero’s Reward Loot Cards?

You can earn Black Knight Games promotional Hero’s Reward cards in the following ways:

  1. Attend any pre-release at Black Knight Games for Born of the Gods, and Journey into Nyx and you will be given one!
  2. Pre-register at least two days ahead of the pre-release and you will be rewarded one additional Hero’s Reward (maximum one per pre-release weekend)!
  3. Complete The Iron Man and participate in every Pre-Release event of the weekend to earn an additional bonus Hero’s Reward!
  4. Attend an FNM or Modern event at BKG and you will have the chance to win one!
  5. Additional Hero’s Rewards will be given to the top players from each Pre-Release event, and several random winners will earn an additional one as well!

What Can I Get with Hero’s Reward Loot Cards?

Hero’s Reward loot cards allow you to choose your prize by selecting one of the Event Rewards to cast.  There are six different Event Rewards that you can choose from, each requiring you to trade in a specific number of Hero’s Rewards to Cast!

Favour of Thassa

Cast the Favour of Thassa (Cost 1)

Selecting this Event Reward gets you one ballot in a draw for a FREE Booster Box of Journey into Nyx.  There will be one draw for each Pre-Release Weekend (three in total) so make sure to submit this reward before the end of the final pre-release event in order to get your ballot.

To the untrained eye the waves crash upon the shore randomly, but those that spend their days on the rolling sea know that it is all part of Thassa’s design.

Favour of Porphoros

Cast the Favour of Purphoros (Cost 1)

Selecting this Event Reward allows you to select one random card from the Pull-Box to keep!  The Pull-Box will be loaded with cool promos, rares, and other fun cards including some pretty valuable ones!

Luck is not random, luck is forged.  Deep in the fires of Purphoros will we find our luck, will we find our way.  Give Purphoros your devotion and your luck shall never run dry!

Favour of Nylea

Cast the Favour of Nylea (Cost 1)

Selecting this Event Reward will get you $5.00 Off the price of any Booster Box.  You may use multiple of this Event Reward multiple times to a maximum of $30.00 Off (6 rewards) per Booster Box.  This Event Reward may be used towards pre-orders.  This Event Reward expires with the release of Core 2015.

Pay homage to Nylea, Goddess of the Hunt, for her arrow always strikes true!  Rewarded with growth and wealth are those that walk the forest path.  Accumulate, grow, and flourish – that is the way of nature, the way of Nylea.

Favour of ErebosCast the Favour of Erebos (Cost 2)

Selecting this Event Reward gets you one FREE Booster Pack from the most recent set in the Theros Block, or Core 2014!  No muss, not fuss – just one booster absolutely free!

Fear the whip of Erebos, for he is the lord of pain.
Fear the eye of Erebos, for he is the lord of punishment.
Fear the heart of Erebos, for he is the lord of darkness.
But take the hand of Erebos and your every wish can come true.

Favour of HeliodCast the Favour of Heliod (Cost 5)

Selecting this Event Reward will get you FREE Entry to any one Friday Night Magic event, Wednesday night Modern event, Pre-Release or Game Day event at Black Knight Games for Journey into Nyx or Magic 2015.  Expires August 2014.

Give generously to the Sun God, for Heliod is generous with you.  He provides warmth from the cold, lights your way through darkness, and makes your crops grow.  Walk in the light of Heliod and rejoice, for there is always another day.

Favour of the GodsCast the Favour of the Gods (Cost 10)

Selecting this Event Reward will get you one Free Fat Pack from Journey into Nyx.  Please note that Fat Packs do have a limited availability, and are typically only available when a set is first released.  You may use this Event Reward to pre-order a Fat Pack.

Each God has his place, but together they are unstoppable.  To garner the favour of the entire pantheon of Gods is no easy feat, which is why none have ever accomplished it.  My child, should you fail it will mean not only your life – but your everlasting soul.  However…should you succeed…
