FNM: Conspiracy Draft & Special Items

ConspiracyCONSPIRACY BOOSTER DRAFT

This Friday for FNM in addition to the Standard event at 6pm we will be running a Conspiracy Booster Draft instead of the normal Booster Draft.  Conspiracy is running out at the distributors and we may not get another chance to run one, so join in tomorrow for what will likely be our last Conspiract Booster Draft!  The price and prizes remain the same as a normal booster draft.

MODERN MASTERS & FTV: TWENTY

For a limited time we will be offering some very exclusive products that are sold out pretty much everywhere!  We have a few booster boxes of Modern Masters.  Individual packs are $16.99, or you can buy a full box for $399.99.

We also just made available a handful of From the Vault: Twenty  sets.  These are limited exclusively to Stronghold Members (one per Stronghold Member, two per Red Card Member) and are available for $149.99.

Needless to say these items are extremely rare at this point, and it is first come first serve.

Adjustment on Food & Beverage Pricing

After taking a closer look at our snack prices and costs we have reluctantly decided that we need to make an adjustment to the prices of the snacks and drinks offered at Black Knight Games.  It is, and has always been our goal to make the snacks and drinks that we offer a convenience and a perk especially for our members.  We have carefully looked at the prices and costs associated with each item, and what is charged in other areas nearby, to ensure that our prices are competitive and that our Stronghold Members are still getting the best deal possible with their discount.  We have decided to raise the price of chips, pop, and energy drinks by twenty-five cents.  Candy bars, and juices will increase by fifty cents.  Stronghold Members, as always, will continue to get their discount on all food items.

We hope everyone understands that it is always our goal to offer an amazing in-store gaming experience, we will continue to offer customers the treys for food, cups and utensils to use, the use of our microwave, and of course we will continue to permit outside food and beverages.  We have a free water-cooler and offer our bottled water at about half the price of competitors nearby because we recognize that gamers need refreshment during a tournament, or long day of gaming.

We endeavor to always have competitive pricing on everything in store.  We had to make this adjustment to enable us to continue offering an excellent selection of snacks and beverages (before now we were actually losing money on the candy bars sales!).  We thank you for your understanding, if anyone has any questions or concerns please let Jay know.

Khans of Tarkir Game Day & Second Chance Tournament

MTG Khans of Tarkir Game Day

Tomorrow is the Khans of Tarkir Game Day, and this time we are adding a fun twist in the form of our Second Chance Tournament.  We will be running the Game Day the same way that we have in the past, with a cut to Top 8 for prizes, but this time as we cut to top 8 we will also begin a FREE second tournament for all those that missed the cut, or just showed up late.  The FREE tournament will happen at the same time as the Top 8 from the previous tournament and the players in the Second Chance tournament will play for a second playmat and a second set of the eight full art promos!  Here are all the details:

When: Saturday, October 18th, 12:00pm (Registration is 11:30am)

Entry Fee: $10.00 ($8.00 for Stronghold Members)

Format: Standard.  Cut to Top 8 after 3 Rounds.

Prizes: 2.5 Boosters per player goes in to the prize pool, and it is split by the top eight players based on how well they do in the finals (may be exchanged for credit).  All players in the top 8 receive a full-art promo Utter End card, a Hero’s Reward card, as well as some portion of the prize pool.  The winner will also get the limited edition Champion playmat  All players in the tournament receive a promo Heir of the Wilds card.

Second Chance Tournament: When we cut to top 8 we will also begin a FREE tournament that anyone can enter (around 2:30-3pm).  This will be a 3 Round swiss tournament.  At the end of 3 rounds the top 8 players, based on record and tie-breakers, will win a full-art promo Utter-End card, and the first place player will win a Champion playmat!  This tournament has no entry fee, and no additional prize pool, but it will allow players a second chance to win the special promos from Game Day.

Build On an Existing Force: You are allowed to use miniatures you already own to flush out your Call to Arms army, as long as they are not yet painted.  To use existing miniatures you must either show them to a staff member or the Standard Bearer (Steve) in person or by emailing a picture so that we can see that they aren’t done yet.

The Resistance has surfaced, it is time to pick a side.  Heed this Call to Arms today!

Doubling Season – FNMs at BKG

MTG FNM x2

The Magic community at Black Knight Games is growing by leaps and bounds, and we are doing our very best to keep up with it all.  We are proud to say that we have taken many steps to address our events, and have listened closely to our community to make adjustments for the better.  We have grown our singles selection considerably.  And now we are taking yet another step forward.  Beginning tomorrow, we will be running two FNM tournaments each and every Friday.

Tournament 1: Standard, Every Friday at 6pm, 4 Rounds, ends at roughly 9:30pm

Tournament 2: Booster Draft, Every Friday at 7pm, 3 Rounds in Pods, ends at roughly 10:30pm (participants remain after normal closing hours until the event is done)

The way we run these events, and the prize structure has not changed, but now rather than alternating every Friday between Standard and Draft we will run both.  This is a trial month, so if you have any feedback about the timing, or other organizational details please let us know.  Next month we may decide to make adjustments, but for now this is the plan.  The reasons for this plan are simply to allow players some flexibility in when to attend, to give those that really prefer either draft of standard their favorite format each week, and to allow a player that loses in the first game of the Standard event the option to drop and join the second event.

So join us this Friday and pick your favorite event!
