Gloomhaven New Wave Preoder Special

Gloomhaven is probably the most successful new game this year.  It is a dungeon crawl legacy game, which is a description that doesn’t do it justice.  Gloomhaven had a successful Kickstarter, and saw very minor stocking in stores before the hype completely exploded, overwhelming the new publisher’s ability to keep up.  A new much larger printing came out many months ago, and even though we brought in a ton of them, they all disappeared into the mists insanely fast.  The next printing been in the works for months, and now – Finally – we will have a restock of this exceptional game at BKG, and stores worldwide.

Gloomhaven is currently rated #1 ALL TIME on boardgamegeek.com, and if you ask anyone that’s played they will tell you why – at length, I promise you.

So celebrate the best game ever returning to our shelves, we will be taking preorders at a special price.  It’s time to get this game in to the hands of as many people as possible!

Re-Release Date: Friday, June 19th

Price: $179.99

Stronghold Membership Renewal Drive

Our Stronghold Memberships are our longest-serving customer promotion, launching on day one of BKG.  All Stronghold Memberships are set to expire on July 1st, which makes June our renewal drive!

Why Would I join?

All the details about our Stronghold Member program can be found here, but in short – because you get all kinds of great stuff for being a member!  Stronghold Members earn way more points on their purchases, get discounts on snacks & drinks, get discounts or extras when they play events, and get a Membership Card with some cool extras on it!  These extras change every year, so what will our members get this time!?

New Membership Card Details

We’ve made a couple changes we really think you’ll like.  We’ve kept the popular 10% off any one purchase or order spot, and you can still get a Hero’s Reward for renewing early.  You will also be able to get a Hero’s Reward for both attending an event, and for signing out Knight’s Code (a code of conduct that makes sure you and other know what behavior to expect in the store).

Our favourite addition this year is the Tab.  Yep, if you want you can activate a $20.00 tab on your account.  This effectively allows you to go into the negatives on your store credit.  The Tab will not have any kind of interest or penalties on it, it’s simply us giving you – our loyal customers – up to $20 of wiggle room to buy things.  Running late for an event?  Call in and we can charge you on your tab!  Buying a drink and don’t want to use debit for $1?  Throw it on you tab!

Free Month & Renewal Bonus

If you are signing up for the first time, or for the first time in a while, by signing up in June you’ll get whatever time is left in the month for free!

If you are an existing Stronghold Member take a look at your card, you’ll see that there is a bonus Hero’s Reward stamp you can earn for re-registering this month!

So sign up for your Stronghold Membership today, and make the most of what BKG has to offer!

MTG Battlebond Release Draft

This Friday, during FNM, our players will have the chance to play a Two-Headed Giant draft using Battlebond!  This will be an option for our regular FNM draft time, so if there are enough players interested we will run both the Battlebond Release draft, and the regular Dominaria draft.

When: Friday, June 8, 6:30pm – 10:00pm

Entry Fee: $20.00 -or- 6 Hero’s Rewards (the same are our regular FNM draft)

Two-Player Draft: For a 2HG draft players with with their team mate, and we run pods of 8 players (4 teams) ideally.  Teams get 4 packs for Battlebond, and open one pack at a time, and select two cards from each pack as they are passed.  Matches are a best-of-one.  We will play 3 rounds, just like our usual FNM Drafts, and prizes are distributed similarly.

Battlebond Launch Promos & Bonus Pack: In a typical FNM Draft our players draft with 3 packs each.  Since Battlebond recommends only 4 packs for a team draft, players will each get a Battlebond booster pack at the end regardless of how they do.  Additionally we will pass out, at random, special Battlebond Promo packs, which contain a pair of partner cards in them, to each team.  These promos WILL be passed out before drafting, and teams CAN use the promos in their draft decks.

Prizes: Like our regular FNM drafts we will put 1.5 boosters in to a prize pool for each player, and those packs will be distributed among the teams that go 2-1 and better.  This is an FNM event too, so it does qualify for our FNM promo cards (Cast Down) as well.

So be sure to jump on this rare opportunity at a Two-Headed Draft, and celebrate the first ever multiplayer focused set!
