The 12 Games of Christmas

Each year we at Black Knight Games select twelve great easy to play 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 2017 are:

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.  There are now five versions of Codenames: the original, Pictures, Undercover (Adults only), Marvel, and Disney (perfect for younger gamers)

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!

Magic Maze: Magic Maze is a real-time cooperative game with a hilariously bizarre theme – you are all trying to help a group of adventurers wander the mall to find their weapons.  It’s a game you have to try to truly understand, but once you do you’re hooked!

Ghost Blitz: Ghost Blitz is a speed game where players have to rush to find the correct item when a card is drawn.  It’s fast, fun, and anyone.  And, it features some fun wooden pieces!

Patchwork: One of the very best games to play with two players, Patchwork is a masterpiece of Euro-game design, where the players are attempting to make the most aesthetic patchwork quilt.

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.

Exploding Kittens: One of 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!  All three versions of the core game, as well as the Imploding Kittens expansion count for this promotion.

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!

Unlock: Escape Rooms have truly become a phenomenon, as people love to test their minds against interesting puzzles.  Unlock allows players to get that experience right at home with six different Unlock games!  Unlock uses a free app that players enter their guesses in, as well as carefullyillustrated cards.

Set: Set is the original speed perception game.  In it players compete in real-time to find sets of like and unlike cards.  A classic, and the perfect game for any lover of more traditional card games.

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!

10th Anniversary Top 10 (Summary)

With so much happening in celebration of our 10th Anniversary we decided it made sense to provide a summary for you all.  Here is the #BKG10 Top Ten List – Links to all are included below:

#10 The Anniversary Party & Auction

We are hosting out biggest Auction ever on Saturday, June 24th, as part of our Anniversary Party!  Join us between 12pm and 6pm for cake, prizes, and fun!  The Auction looks to be our biggest ever (by far) so bring your wallets to get some insane deals!  Silent Auction begins at 1pm, and the Live Auction will finish off any items that get more than one bid!

#9 Ten Draws for Ten Years

On June 24th, at the end of the day, we will be drawing ten winners for ten big prizes including the likes of a 40K Dark Imperium set, a Blood Bowl, a Pokémon EX/Mega box of your choice, and more!  Anyone that attends the Anniversary Party will get a ballot, and in addition for every $50 a person spent in June they got one (including things you buy at the Auction)!

#8 Ten New Product Lines for Ten Years

We announced a couple months ago our intention to bring in ten brand new product lines that we never carried before as part of the celebration.  Most of those lines have been announced – but expect to see more announcements before the end of June!  Currently announced lines include:

#7 MTG Seasonal Championships

We announced that we will be adding a Seasonal Championship reward for our big three Magic: the Gathering gaming nights: FNM Standard, FNM Draft, and Wednesday Modern.  All participants are automatically entered and the single player in each with the most Match Wins is the Champion!  The Champions are given a unique BKG Championship playmat, and are awarded permanent ‘Bounty Status’ throughout the next season!  You can follow all the details on the Seasonal Championship HERE.

#6 Updated Stronghold Membership Program

We have made a major update to the Stronghold Members program.  All the stuff you knew and loved remain, and now you get a snazzy card with even more savings on it!  Additionally the way cards are tracked, and expire has changed making it easier for us to track and administer rewards properly.  You can always look at the full details about our Stronghold Membership HERE.

#5 Hero’s Reward Program Expands Beyond MTG

We have expanded our incredibly popular Hero’s Reward program beyond just Magic.  Now, players from all game systems can collect and redeem Hero’s Rewards for participating in events, winning prizes, or as purchasing incentives.  Hero’s Rewards are custom BKG cards that participants collect, and redeem in various amounts for a variety of prizes!  You can always find out more about the Hero’s Reward Program HERE.

#4 10 Flash Sales for 10 Years

You can’t have a big celebration without sales!  We have had ten different ‘Flash Sales’ for all kind of product lines.  Each Flash Sale was announced the morning of, and gave anyone purchasing items in that product range a 10% Discount that day!

#3 Black Knight Games Will Now Sell [REDACTED] [REDACTED] [REDACTED] Games!

That’s right, we are finally diving in and will begin to sell [REDACTED] this summer!  So get your [REDACED] ready, because this is a whole new [REDACTED] we’re opening up!  (Announcement Coming)

#2 New Method of Selling MTG Singles

Black Knight Games is overhauling the way we deal with and sell MTG singles.  Gone are those always half-empty, always falling-apart binders!  We will now be going to a ‘Pick List’ system, where customers submit a list of cards they need, and we pick them all from a well-organized alphabetic series of drawers.  You will even have the ability to submit your list from home before you show up!  This should make the process much easier to find the cards you need, and to get them from us.

Unfortunately this does come with a bit of a transition period – so for the time being we are not able to fulfill all requests to buy singles while we sort – we are sorry for the inconvenience.

#1 New Store Layout & Front Window Graphics

Black Knight Games closed down for a day and a half to do some major re-arranging of our gaming area.  We added a great new RPG/Board Game table, and re-configured our shopping space to allow for even more shelves to display things even better.  Regulars at the store will likely notice a huge change, and we hope you enjoy getting to know the new BKG layout.  We also added some great graphic images outside that you will immediately notice when you get here – we hope these will catch the eyes of even more passers-by and help us bring in more players to grow our BKG communities!

So there you have it – so much is going on, no wonder we all feel exhausted!  We hope you see all of our changes as positive steps forward, and as an indication that we aren’t done trying to improve for you.  Black Knight Games has been around for ten years, and it’s all thanks to our amazing customers.  We pledge to never take our position as your gaming destination of choice lightly, and we will always be on the look out for more ways to improve your gaming and buying experience!  We can’t wait to share the next ten years with you, and see what they bring!

BKG 10 News: Anniversary Details

We have been unveiling all kinds of changes, and new products that we are bringing in as part of our 10th Anniversary Celebration – but this is the announcement most people have been waiting to see: Our Anniversary Party and Auction!  But more than that specific day, we have a couple other fun announcements here too!

ANNIVERSARY & AUCTION PARTY

Party: Saturday, June 24, 12:00pm – 5:00pm
Auction: Silent Auction Begins at 1:00pm // Live Auction Begins at 2:30pm

Party Details: During the party we will have cake, players can grab a table and play games, and you can explore our newly changed store (more on that later).  It’ll be a day to hang out with friends, and make some new ones, and just celebrate the community we have built together here at BKG!

Auction Details: Every year during our anniversary party we host an auction.  The auction provides both our customers (you) and the shop the opportunity to do some spring cleaning.  Anyone can submit items to the auction (pending BKG approval), and they get reimbursed based on how much the item sells for!  This makes for a great event where people can get something for items they don’t want, and where you can get things for a screaming good deal!

The auction is divided in to two halves: the Silent Auction, and the Live Auction.  During the Silent Auction participants can walk around, and examine the items.  They can bid on each item as well.  Any items that have at least two bids on them will be added and finished to the Live Auction at 2:30pm, where bidding will continue until we have a winner.  Any items that have only one bid on them will be sold in the Silent Auction, and will not progress to the Live Auction.  Any items with zero bids on them will either remain unsold, or will be adjusted and re-submitted during the Live Auction.

If you want to sell any items in our Auction you can!  Bring them in to BKG between now and June 22nd.  Items should be gaming-related, and fit with the types of things we sell in the store.  You will be able to set a starting bid number, so that it doesn’t sell for too little.  If you item sells you will be rewarded with 90% of the sale price in BKG Credit after the event (please allow a couple of days to process this), the other 10% will be used to cover administration expenses for the event.

So help us celebrate our 10th Anniversary and turn some stuff you don’t need anymore in to BKG Credit to get stuff you DO want!

TEN DRAWS FOR TEN YEARS!

Usually at our Anniversary Party we give away four special prizes through our Draws.  This year we are doing ten prizes (for 10 years) and letting everyone get a jump start on them by beginning them immediately!

You will get a Ballot for each $50.00 you spend at Black Knight Games between now and the draw at 5:00pm on June 22nd!  Additionally you will get a Ballot for attending the Anniversary Party & Auction!

The ten flash sales will be announced at close the day beforehand on our website and Facebook.  The flash sale will be for a specific game or category in the store.  Every item in that category will be 10% OFF for the entire day!

So keep your eyes on our pages, and you will get the chance to get an even better deal on your favorite games, miniatures, and accessories!

BKG 10 News: Hero’s Reward Program Expands

Black Knight Games, as part of our slew of 10th Anniversary Improvement announcements, is very excited to announce that we will be expanding the very popular ‘Hero’s Reward‘ program beyond just Magic: the Gathering.  Now, nearly every single game system we support with events, will be supported with our Hero’s Reward program!

Hero's Reward Stack 40kWhat are Hero’s Rewards?

For those that haven’t played in our Magic: the Gathering events over the past several years, Hero’s Rewards may be an entirely foreign concept – so what are they?  Hero’s Rewards are promotional cards that we pass out at events as prizes, participation incentives, random giveaways, etc.  Participants can then exchange a number of Hero’s Rewards for the reward of their choice!  Among the rewards are things as simple as a free booster pack, or free entry to an event, all the way up to an entire Booster Box!

For all the specific details on this program, and the available prizes, check out our recently updated BlackKnightGames.ca/Hero page.

How will this be implemented in to other games?

You will see a few immediate differences in how our events are priced, and how prizes are awarded.  First of all all events with an entry fee will also have a Hero’s Reward price (meaning you can redeem a certain number of Hero’s Rewards to join in for FREE).  Additionally, each event will usually include a method or two to earn Hero’s Rewards: sometimes it will be a participation bonus, sometimes it will be part of the prizes, and sometimes it will be a random give-away.

Some events will no longer have a discounted price for Stronghold Members, and instead members will get a Hero’s Reward.

The rewards list on the Hero’s Reward page has also been amended to include prizes for people that play games like Warhammer, Warmachine, Star Wars Destiny, and Pokémon.  There should be several prizes that each person might get excited about.

Hero's Reward Hand Amonkhet2Why Do This?

Hero’s Rewards has been, by far, our most popular and long-lasting game promotion.  Over the several years that we have run the program for our Magic players there has been an inherent value ascribed to the Hero’s Reward cards.  They’re fun, we get to change how they look, they can be traded in for so many different things, and if you don’t want the reward you can always trade it or give it to a friend!

Basically Hero’s Rewards are one of our favorite BKG promotions, and we want everyone to be able to enjoy it.

I’m a Magic player, how does this affect me?

It doesn’t really.  You will still collect them the same way, and with the exception of a couple minor modifications, all your prize options are absolutely intact.  Additionally you can now explore other gaming options as avenues to spend your Hero’s Rewards – so you have more options than ever!

We at Black Knight Games are very excited to be expanding this program, and we very much hope you enjoy it too.  If you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to ask the staff.
