You Get:

Every participant gets a Hero’s Reward card for participating, which can be used on a variety of rewards including a free Pet, or a snack or drink!

Option (+$12.00): If they didn’t take advantage of the bundle during our Welcome to Blackwood event participants can get a set of RPG Dice and a miniature representing your character – both chosen from our huge variety of stock!

The Game: Cirque de Sorcerer’ is a new adventure in our D&D session storyline.

A wondrous and mystical circus has come to the town of Blackmoor. Come one, come all, and experience a show like none other! But not everything about the circus is as it seems, and as kids begin to go missing, the Knights of Blackwood are called once more to get to the bottom of this mystery.

All pages, maps, enemy characters, and other necessary items will be provided by the store – the only thing players must have is a miniature for their character, and a set of RPG dice (see the ‘Option’ above if you don’t already have these.

Participants can either continue to use their character from previous KoB adventures, or can create a new level 1 D&D character in advance – just clear the character with Cody beforehand.

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!

Blood Bowl: BKBBL Season 15

Nommonlir Brewrock huffed off the field exultation swarming his senses as he and his team-mates popped the best ales to celebrate their Season 14 Championship.  It had been a long hard run, but they had gotten there.  Not a single dwarf in that locker room had avoided bumps or bruises, but they had proven their worth.  Just as he was about to chug his first gulp of Bugman’s Special Reserve his coach thrust a piece of paper in to his hands, the same hands that had scored 17 touchdowns this season.

“What’s this?” Nommonlir asked?

“Season 15 schedule!” coach replied, “practice starts now!”

Nummonlir took a long drought of his ale, that would have do for celebrations, they had a championship to defend…
