MTG Ravnica Allegiance Prerelease Weekend

We continue our journey through Ravnica we we celebrate the release of Ravnica Allegiance!  Join us for an entire weekend of Prerelease fun!  This time, due to popularity, we’ve added a second Two-Headed Giant event to our usual prerelease weekend mix.  Here are the details:

When: There will be six regular Ravnica Allegiance Prerelease events over the weekend, as well as a Youth event on the Sunday!

Friday, January 18 – MIDNIGHT (Sealed Deck)

Saturday, January 19 – 9:00am (Sealed Deck), 2:30pm (Sealed Deck), 8:00pm (Two-Headed Sealed)

Sunday, January 20 – 10:00am (Sealed Deck), 3:30pm (Two-Headed Sealed)

Format: Sealed Deck (one event on Saturday and Sunday will be Sealed Two-Headed Giant), 4 Rounds

Entry Fee: $39.00 // $35.00 for Stronghold Members // 9 Hero’s Rewards

You Get: Everyone gets a Guild-Specific Prerelease pack.  Prerelease Packs include five regular boosters of Guilds of Ravnica, and one Guild-Specific seeded booster pack including a foil promo card (could be any rare/mythic from the set), a countdown die, a checklist, and a box to hold it all.  All participants get a FREE Hero’s Reward card for each event they participate in. Additionally there will be door prizes, delicious snacks, and more fun.

Prizes: We will add three Ravnica Allegiance packs into the prize pool per participant.  Each match (aka best of 3 round) a player wins will earn them a prize pack.  Remaining packs (1 per person) are distributed among undefeated and 3-1 players (3-1 players get +1 pack, undefeated players split the rest, usually that means between 12-16 packs).  We will also randomly distribute a second Hero’s Reward for every 5 participants (including one to any winless players – which means everyone wins something!).

Youth Event: We have recently introduced the Knights of Blackwood Youth Program (to encourage our players ages 6-16 to participate in games), and we will be hosting a fun and casual MTG Prerelease event for our younger players on the same weekend!  Check out the Knights of Blackwood Guilds of Ravnica Prerelease event for more details.

Preorder Special:  Just like with the past number of sets when you preorder you’ll be able to pick up your booster box at the prerelease weekend, as well as a special Buy-a-Box card!  Check out our Preorder Special for all the details!

BKG Paint Table Event

In my experience the very 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 is organizing our first ‘Painting Table’ event!

When: Sunday, December 16th, 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!
