Knights of Blackwood Youth Program

Black Knight Games is very excited to announce our brand new youth program, Knights of Blackwood!

This program is FREE and is meant for any of our gamers from the ages of 6 to 16.  Member get a membership card with perks, and get access to our Knights of Blackwood events, which we will begin running during March Break, and will continue regularly.  To start we will host events for:

  • Warhammer 40,000
  • Warhammer Age of Sigmar
  • Magic: the Gathering
  • Pokémon
  • Dungeons & Dragons
  • Board Games

We intend to expand in to other games and game systems in the future as well.

One very crucial ingredient to this program is to put at ease the parents and guardians.  All communication about upcoming events goes through the Parents and Guardians, via a Newsletter and Facebook Group.  Additionally, anyone that runs Knights of Blackwood events will have passed a Vulnerable Sector background check.  It is important that the parents and guardians of our members are confident that this is a safe space, and we aim to put them at ease.

Check out the Knights of Blackwood page for all the details about the program, including about the Pet Collections that our members will gain access to to help them on their adventures!

So Join Now – It’s FREE, it’s for kids, and it’s awesome!
