MTG: Team Trios Modern

Black Knight Games is very excited to be hosting another Team Trios tournament for MTG!  Team Trios is a special format where teams of three players face off against other teams. This time rather than using different formats every player will be playing Modern!

Date: Saturday, September 7, 12:00pm start time (be there at 11:30am)

Entry Fee: $15.00 -or- 5 Hero’s Rewards Per Player
Stronghold Members Get: A Hero’s Reward for participating

Format: Swiss, 3-5 Rounds, No Cut, Teams of 3, Unified Modern (each player builds a Modern deck, but collectively they can’t surpass the deck-building restrictions that usually apply to one deck – for example you couldn’t have more than 4 Fatal Pushes between the three decks combined).  Each round teams face off against one another with the players of the same format playing one another.  Players play a best of 3 match, and the team that wins the most matches wins the round. Before the event teams assign each player either ‘A’, ‘B’, or ‘C’ and within matches A plays A, B plays B, and C plays C.

Because it’s an unusual format, and one that might cause some confusion we will have a judge on hand for the event, and decklists will be taken at the beginning of the event.

Prizes:  3 Booster Packs are added to the Prize Pool for each participant and is spread evenly to participants based on record, with team-mates each taking down the same prize.  Packs may be swapped for $5.00 in Store Credit.

2019 BKG Invitational: The winning team will secure ALL THREE PLAYERS a spot in our 2019 Grand Invitational Event in January!

Painting Table AUG

We always feel that the best way to paint is in a group.  Newer painters can ask questions and learn, good painters get to show off a little, you can bounce ideas off each other, and just enjoy the company of those that share this wonderful hobby with you.  In order to allow everyone the opportunity to enjoy group painting, BKG organizes our ‘Painting Table’ events each month!

When: Sunday, August 18, 12:00pm – 4:00pm

Entry Fee: None, just bring your stuff and paint with us!

Details: Bring any paints you’ll need, if you don’t have them or can’t bring them we will have some available too.  Bring whatever painting project you have on the go, sit down, and get painting!  We will supply some stations, water cups, paper towel, pallets etc.

New Painters & Kids: Want to learn how to paint, or something new?  Perfect!  We will have staff sitting at the table too, and they’ll be more than happy to teach you what they know.  Other painters will be sure to pipe in with their own advice.  So, while this isn’t an organized seminar event, it will be a great spot to learn, and in some ways even better because you’ll learn tailored to the project you are working on.  We’ll even give you a starting miniature if you’ve never painted before!
