Each year we at Black Knight Games select twelve great entry-level games that we think would make an amazing gift for pretty much anybody.  These games are always priced in a price range that isn’t prohibitive, and are games that anyone – non gamers, and hard-core gamers alike – can enjoy together.  We keep our 12 Games of Christmas well stocked, and always have an open copy for you to try and check out – to make sure it’s the game for you!

For each of the 12 Games of Christmas you get you will be entered in to a draw for one of four $50 Gift Cards!  These prizes will be drawn in the new year.

The 12 Games of Christmas for 2016 are:

codenames

Winner of Game of the Year in 2016 – Give Codenames a Try!

Codenames: Winner of Game of the Year for 2016, Codenames is a clever clue-giving game where you have to get your team of spies to guess the correct combination of words.  We at BKG truly recommend this game for ANYONE!

Cockroach Poker: Cockroach Poker is the ultimate game for sneaky cheats and liars…but in a good way!  Trick your opponents in to believing your poker face and stick them with a set to eliminate them!

Zombie Dice: Zombie Dice is a simple press-your-luck game where you have to weigh your odds of continuing or keeping what you’ve got – plus you are a zombie!

Just look at those cool dice!

Star Wars Destiny Starter Set: Star Wars Destiny is a new dice/card game that has taken the shop by storm.  Whether you are looking for a fun game to play at home, or a new game to master in a tournament setting Star Wars Destiny will fit the bill.

Love Letter: Love Letter has become a classic.  This simple card game is perfect to fill 10 minutes or a couple hours.  Now you can play the classic game, or the Batman, Hobbit, Archer, Adventure Time, or Christmas themed variants!

Hanabi: Winner of Game of the Year in 2013, Hanabi is a charming co-operative card game where you hold your hand of cards backwards so that everyone knows what you have but you!

Star Realms: A great two player deck-building game of space combat.  If you can beat Mike at it you win a prize…seriously…he’s really good.

Sift through the Taco Cats to get Diffuser Cards to save yourselves from those naughty kittens!

Exploding Kittens: The most successful game on Kickstarter ever!  Exploding Kittens is a hilarious game from the makers of The Oatmeal comics where you manipulate the deck to make sure you don’t draw an exploding kitten!

Coup: A simple bluffing game with plenty of options to mix it up.  You can perform any action in the game…as long as people don’t call you out for it!

Dungeons & Dragon Starter Set: Ever since Stranger Things blew us all away D&D has blown up again!  This amazingly affordable starter set will get any group in to the game for a very good price!

3 Wishes: Many are calling this game the new ‘Love Letter.’  In 3 Wishes you have to get a set of three cards in front of you, but it’s harder than it looks since all the cards are face down!

Lost in R’lyeh: In this simple yet strategic game you are trying to get rid of all your cards first.  Easier said than done as the Elder Things tend to mess things up for you – and don’t worry if you can’t pronounce the name – C’thulhu likes it that way!
