The 12 Games of Christmas

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!

swd

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.

explode

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!

Black Friday Weekend is Coming

Black Knight Games will be having an entire weekend of sales to kick off the holiday season.  Our Black Friday Weekend will run from Friday to Sunday, and all of our promotions and deals will last that entire duration, and while supplies last.

We will announce exactly what will be on sale at 6pm on Thursday, so definitely check out our announcement at that time foe even more details.  There are some things I can share now however:

Thumbs UpDoor Busters
We will be selecting several items that will be on sale for a really good price.  These specific items are ones we will have a good amount of stock on, but that will be limited to first come first serve.

Bonus Points
All purchases will earn a number of bonus Stronghold Points

Holiday Deals & Draws
Beginning on Black Friday we will launch our always popular Holiday Bundles Program, including the 12 Games of Christmas and our Holiday Draws.  All purchases on Black Friday Weekend will be entitled to BOTH the Black Friday benefits, AND the Holiday Deals benefits.

Limitation on Magic: the Gathering Trade-ins
We will be very busy this weekend with our sale and eight different events (!), so we will be limiting MTG trade-ins to only cards on the Hotlist for the duration of the Black Friday Weekend.  Fear not MTG players we will have some great promotions to make it up to you!  If you really need to trade in singles we suggest you drop by over the next couple of days to do so.

Hero’s Rewards Updated

heros-reward-handOur Hero’s Reward program for Magic: the Gathering is one of our most successful promotions ever.  For those that aren’t familiar we give out special Hero’s Reward cards as promotional giveaways, prizes, and rewards at our various Magic: the Gathering events.  You can trade in those hero’s reward for a variety of different prizes, each one requiring a certain number of Hero’s Rewards as payment.

With each block we update the look and style of our Hero’s Rewards, and we are proud to introduce to you our new Kaladesh-Themed Hero’s Reward set!  With our new Kaladesh look we have, in my opinion, our nicest looking Hero’s Reward card yet.  We also have one change to our reward options:

We replaced the ‘Spend 3 Hero’s Rewards to get a discount on a Booster Box’ option (by far our least popular) with a new ‘Spend 1 Hero’s Reward to get a Free Chip, Candy, Pop, or Water –or– Spend 2 Hero’s Rewards to get a Free Energy Drink or Juice.’  We hope that this new option will appeal to the many players that we have, and will provide another easy option while you hang out in the shop.

The Auction: This year we will be running a similar auction to last year – one that includes both items from the shop, and items from customers wanting to unload things they not longer need.  Last year went great, and now that it is tried and tested we expect this to be our biggest auction yet!  Be sure to bring your wallets as there will be some great deals available.  The first step is the silent auction at 1pm.  Any items that have received at least two bids by 2pm are advanced to the live auction.

X-Wing Tournament6

HANGAR BAY TOURNAMENT

When: Sunday, June 19th, 11:00am

Entry Fee: $6.00 ($5.00 for Stronghold Members)

Format: The Hangar Bay format is a brand new way to display  even more of your collection, broaden your expertise, and destroy your  enemies!

To play Hangar Bay format events, you will need to bring two standard  squads that follow the 100-point maximum. These squads will use the same  damage deck and obstacles.  We will also be using the Rival Rule: each  player’s two squads must belong to different factions.

Hangar Bay format rounds each begin by placing your first squad on your  left, and your second squad on your right. After evaluating your opponent’s  squads, both of you will secretly select which squad to field for this  round by using a maneuver dial.  Rotate to a 1-speed maneuver to select  your first squad on your left, or a 2-speed maneuver to select your second  squad on your right, and then place your maneuver dial facedown. Next, each  player reveals their dial simultaneously, and removes their unselected  squad from the table.

Players normally make all of the decisions about what ships they will  deploy for each game before they even come to the tournament. But with the  Hangar Bay format, players get to experience that strategic excitement  prior to each round of play!

75 minute rounds
3’x3′ play area

Prizes: We will have a Spring OP Kit available as prizes in addition to the I am your Father’s Day promos participants will be getting, if there are enough participants we will add to the prize pool with store credit.

Lunch: We will be taking a pizza order that participants can get in on if they wish for lunch.  $5.00 gets you three slices and a drink.
