International TableTop Day 2017

Every year the folks at Geek & Sundry sponsor what amounts to a gamer’s holiday.  International TableTop Day is a day where gamers across the world get together and enjoy their favorite pass-time together.  Black Knight Games has been a part of ITTD from the beginning, and we will, of course, be participating tomorrow!

Age of Sigmar: Community Party

Since we have had a couple of groups sprouting up for Age of Sigmar in the past couple months, with the Call to Arms, and the Thursday night gamers, we have opened up what was formerly the Call to Arms Finale to all of the members in our AoS community!

When: Sunday, February 26th, 5pm

After the store closes all are invited for pizza, prizes, and gaming! We will also host a painting contest as well.

Entry: Free – to C2A Participants, $5.00 for everyone else

You Get: Pizza, Drinks, Gaming, Fun!

Painting Contest: All participants can submit an entry in all three catagories: Best single model, best large model, and best unit (fun prizes for winners)

Last Call for Call to Arms: For those that participated in the Call to Arms you will be awarded points for your efforts, which you will be able to spend on your choice of prizes. This is the new DEADLINE for finishing your armies – so you’ve got a couple more weeks!

MTG: Aether Revolt Prerelease Weekend

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, snacks, and more fun.

Prizes: We will add two MTG Aether Revolt booster packs into the prize pool per participant. Prizes in the past have been divided into balanced and original formats, but this year we’re doing something a little different.

We’ve gotten a lot of great feedback about our system of rewarding a pack for each match win, but players have sometimes missed the big payout factor of going undefeated and getting an exciting stack of packs. We’re listening to you. We’ve made some adjustments.

In the first round of play, winners will be awarded a Hero’s Reward. In every round thereafter, the winner of each match will get a booster pack of Aether Revolt. Then, undefeated players after the 4th round will get an even split of a number of packs equal to half the participants.

This means we’re giving out more than at previous events, at the same price as previous prereleases. We want to be your destination of choice for Aether Revolt, as we know Magic players have lots of options. We appreciate your continued loyalty to BKG and want you to know that we always think about our customers first when creating great events.
