Miniature Madness!

Miniature Madness

On Saturday we will be hosting a celebration of Miniature Gaming!  Bring your minis and play as many games as you can in the hopes of winning some sweet door prizes!

When: Saturday, August 1st, ALL DAY

Entry Fee: Nope – Free to All!

Gaming: Participants in Miniature Madness can play as much as they want, against whoever they want, with any miniature game system they want.  Each participant will get a sheet to record their games, opponents, and game systems played.

Discount on Minis: Anyone that participates in Miniature Madness will get a 10% Discount on the purchase of any miniatures or hobby supplies they buy that day!  In-Stock Items Only

Prizes:  We will have a bunch of fun miniatures to give away through draws during Miniature Madness.  You can earn a lot of ballots for prizes during Miniature Madness, getting one:

  • For every game you play you will get a ballot.
  • For every different game system you play you will get a ballot.
  • For every different opponent you play you will get a ballot.

So if you play only one game of Infinity – and that is all – you would get THREE BALLOTS (One for the game, one for the opponent, and one for the game system).  If you played three games of age of Sigmar against three different opponents, and one game of 40K against one of the same opponents you would earn NINE BALLOTS (four for the games played, two for the two game systems, and three for the three unique opponents you played).

So join us on Saturday to celebrate Miniature Gaming at Black Knight Games!!!

Age of Sigmar Army Composition: While Age of Sigmar is designed for great casual play already we will be using some fairly simple army guidelines to make sure that each force is somewhat balanced for this event.  Please have a look over our Army Building Guidelines document and assemble your forces accordingly.  Please let us know what you think/thought of these rules so that we can improve them for our next event!

Changes to our MTG Buying Policy

MTG - BKG Buylist

Having a well-stocked and up to date selection of singles is important for any store selling MTG.  At Black Knight Games we have always tried to provide a decent selection at a fair price.  However, there are often times when our selection wanes and doesn’t offer many of the staples our customers are looking for.  Correcting this is something that we have been working on recently, and it is with the goal of providing a better selection of singles that we have decided to make a few changes:

MTG Buylist Page: We have created a Buylist Page where our MTG buying policy is clearly spelled out.  Our hope is that by making this page available and easy to find our customers will have more confidence trading in.

BKG Hotlist: We have also created a new Hotlist which will be available on our Buylist Page.  The Hotlist is a collection of our most desired trade-ins.  You will receive a bonus 30℅ more when trading in or selling items from the hot list than you would for non-Hotlist cards.  So if you were about to get $10 in trade, it would be $13 if it’s on the Hotlist.  The Hotlist will change on a regular basis to keep our most desired cards on it.  Our goal with the Hotlist is to give players a reason to trade in the more popular cards, which should mean that we have a more steady selection of staples in stock for our customers.

StarCityGames: We will be switching our pricing standard to StarCityGames.com.  It has become apparent that the majority of our customers prefer it as a pricing standard.  We believe that making this switch will allow our customers to feel more confident in our pricing both for buying and selling.

Cash Trade-Ins: While we will always offer our customers more for their trade-ins in the form of credit, we are clarifying our cash-buying policy.  We will usually be able to make cash offers on trade ins, depending on cash on hand and the individual Staff members buying-clearance.  The items on the Hotlist will get the 30% boost as well when dealing in cash.  For full details on trading in for cash check out Buylist Page.

We are hoping that our customers will feel even more comfortable trading with the store now, and that we will be able to offer an even better selection of singles for sale in the near-future!  Let us know what you think of these changes to our buying policy.

It is VERY Different: Age of Sigmar is more than the usual new edition – it is a completely new game.  The rules are quite different, yet maintain many familiar things.  You really need to try it to see how different and fresh it is.

The Rules are FREE!: For the first time in decades the Warhammer rules are free!  Not only can you find the full rulebook online, but also the rules for all of the existing units as well!:

Warhammer Age of Sigmar Rules & Compendiums

Why Jump In Now?:  It has been years since a big new game has had this kind of momentum at Black Knight Games.  Age of Sigmar is new, fresh, and appeals to new players.  We expect that this summer Age of Sigmar will really be big.  We’ve also got several great promotions to help you out including a draw, a painting incentive, and a special introductory price!

Age of Sigmar Draw: Anyone that purchases Age of Sigmar from Black Knight Games by August 11th (the first month of release) will automatically be entered in to a draw for $150.00 in Warhammer product of their choice!

Age of Sigmar Painting Incentive: Anyone that purchases Age of Sigmar from Black Knight Games and paints up any two Warscrolls from the set can bring them in to show us, and earn themselves $10.00 in BKG Credit!  Deadline: August 11th.

Special Introductory Price:

Stronghold Members or Miniwargaming Vault Members that buy Age of Sigmar from Black Knight Games in it’s first month of release (by August 11th), will get the set for only $124.99!  That’s a $25.00 savings!  That means that even if you AREN’T a Stronghold Member you could become one AND buy the set for the same price as the set normally is!

With all of these offers we are hoping to get as many new players playing Age of Sigmar this summer as we can.  It is truly a special experience when a brand new game catches fire in a community, and we believe we can have that with Age of Sigmar.  So join in the fun this summer as dozens of enthusiastic gamers take on a brand new game here at BKG!

40K: Summer Campaign is On!

40K - Summer Campaign

Get your 40K on this summer with our Warhammer 40,000 Summer Campaign!  You can play whenever and however much you want – and it’s open to everyone.

When: You can play your games at BKG any time you would like.  Our 40K game night is Tuesday, so that is an excellent time to expect games, but you can play other times as well.

If you are interested sign up in store for FREE!

Games: Games can be played with anyone – not just players that have signed up for the campaign.  Simply play a game worth at least 1000pts, and then submit the results via results ballot to the box.

Prizes: Our Standard Bearer Mark is providing some prizes in the form of BKG credit to those that participate.  He will randomly draw two of the game ballots and award those drawn with $20 in credit.  Additionally there is a $20 prize for the individual that submitted the most, and $10 for the individual that submitted the most losses – so there is plenty of incentive to keep playing regardless of how well you’ve done!
