MTG: Shadows Over Innistrad Prerelease Weekend

MTG Shadows Over Innistrad Prerelease Weekend

***Note: After having a look at the latest pricing, the Canadian dollar has made a bit of a come back over the last couple of months, and the prerelease packs came in lower that original estimates.  Because of this we are very happy to be able to offer this event at a more affordable price: while originally we were charging $45/$40, this event is now $39/35!  If you already preregistered, the difference will be automatically added to your store credit.  Hopefully the Canadian dollar keeps getting stronger and we can keep lowering prices!***

We will be celebrating the upcoming release of Magic: the Gathering: Shadows Over Innistrad with an entire weekend of prerelease fun!

Entry Fee: $39.00 ($35.00 for Stronghold Members) or hand in 9 Hero’s Reward Cards

You Get: Everyone gets a Prerelease pack. All participants get a FREE Hero’s Reward Card for each event they participate in. Additionally there will be door prizes, quizes, and more fun!

Prizes: We will add two MTG Shadows Over Innistrad booster packs in to the prize pool per participant. Prizes will be distributed in one of two different ways.

Some tournaments will use an Original Prizing format like we’ve done in the past (prizes based on overall record with those winning the majority of their games getting the entire prize pool).

Other tournaments will use a new Balanced Prizing format, where tournaments will be 4 rounds, and each player wins a pack for every match they win (this will give less prizes to the top players, but will spread the packs out more). So double check which events have which prizing method and be sure to attend the one you prefer!

WMH Call to Arms

WMH C2A Banner

Edit:  With the announcement of a brand new edition of Warmachine and Hordes coming in June, we’re postponing the start date of our Call to Arms to line up with this release.  The Call to Arms will officially begin June 12th.

It has been some time since our last Call to Arms event at Black Knight Games for WMH, but we are bringing it back bigger and better than ever!  We are proud to announce Call to Arms: Warmachine & Hordes – the best way to build your army!

What is Call to Arms?:

Call to Arms is a multi-event army building league.  In Call to Arms participants sign up to get their army from zero to finished within a certain time-frame.  Throughout the Call to Arms we will have hobby and gaming events to help create a sense of community among all the participants.  By the end we have a great group of players, who all have a similar sized painted army, and who have been playing games and building their armies together.  It is a truly unifying and exciting gaming experience and yields a strong gaming community afterwards.

How do I join?

Participants can either pay a $30.00 entry fee to join the Call to Arms, or they can get in free by making a $150.00 purchase towards the building of their army (this purchase can be for anything needed to get your army going, be it miniatures, paints, rule books, hobby tools etc.).

What do I get for joining?

In addition to getting a great experience participants of the Call to Arms will get free or discounted entry into all Call to Arms labeled events, as well as the league that will begin once Call to Arms ends.  Participants will get an invitation to the Call to Arms Party, which will be exclusive for Call to Arms participants and will have pizza, drinks, gaming, and will be after the store closes for the day.  Participants will get first crack at spots on the league map when our Warmachine league begins.

There will be achievement prizes for a few special accomplishments for some of those that achieve their deadline goal: First Completed Force, Most Completed Models, Best Painted, & Best Concept.

Additionally any participant that completely finishes their force by the deadline will earn a special, custom Call to Arms reward.sm BK Steampunk v2

What is the goal?

Participants aim to complete a fresh 75 point Warmachine or Hordes army from unpainted to finished by the deadline of Sunday, September 4th.  Participants can use any miniatures that they own that are not yet painted.  Miniatures can be pre-assembled and primed.  If participants wish to use miniatures they already own they can either bring them by to show the staff they aren’t yet painted, or send us a picture of them.

The biggest goal of the Call to Arms is to have a great community of player grow throughout it.  Most of the staff will be getting involved, we will be posting blogs about the events and the forces in progress.  We invite everyone to join the BKG Warmachine Facebook group to showcase your projects, and make plans to play games or paint.  Basically if you’ve ever wanted to see what would happen if Black Knight Games went all-out on a game – this is it.  So don’t miss out.  Gather your forces, and plan out some painting time, and let’s all build our armies together!
