Keyforge: Launch Tournament

Keyforge, the world’s first unique-deck game is almost here, and we are very excited!  We will be running a Launch Event, including a tournament, to celebrate this new game:

When: Thursday, November 15, 6:00pm – 10:00pm

Entry Fee: $10.00 -or- 4 Hero’s Rewards

Format:  The event will have two parts:

Learn to Play: Everyone that participates will need a Keyforge deck either from the starter set (not the demo decks) or that they purchased separately, and tokens from the starter (or a suitable substitute).  Players will be paired off for a round of gaming to try out the rules.  We will have a staff on hand to help explain and clarify during this first round.  This round will not count towards the tournament, and is just to help players get their feet under them.

Tournament: After the demo round we will play a 3 Round Tournament.  Anyone that finishes at least 2-1 will win another Archon Deck!  It also gives you a chance to claim your third Active House card and a House poster. Finally, each of the event’s top three players will designate one House for the store’s Create-an-Archon poster.

Keyforge App: Don’t forget to register your deck(s) on the Keyforge App!  This amazing feature will allow all decks in tournament play to be tracked and rated/ranked – which will really help you earn some bragging rights!

So join us for the first tournament in what we believe will be a very successful new game at BKG!
