Prizes:
-The winner will receive the ITS 2019 Aida Swanson model.
-Additional prizes from the kit for lower-placing players include patches, faction dice, tokens, and terrain packs.
-Paint Your Toys: Spud wants to encourage players to get their stuff painted, so he’s offering a special prize raffle at every event in 2019. Tickets for the raffle can be earned in a few ways:

1) If your armies are fully painted, you get 3 tickets.
2) You receive one additional ticket (up to a max of 3) for each model you’re playing at the event that was painted in the last two months (purely on the honour system 😛 ).
3) Finally, each player will receive one special ticket on which they can write the name of the person whose models they like best (by whatever subjective artistic criteria each person chooses to apply!).

At the end of the day, one name will be drawn, and that player will be able to pick from one of three army starter boxes!

Be sure to register on the ITS site at this link: https://its.infinitythegame.com/event/91f73fdbb-300pt-its-season-10-event-at-black-knight

All players are responsible for bringing their own models, dice, tokens, measuring devices, classified decks, and printed army lists.

I look forward to seeing everyone out on February 2nd! 🙂

MTG: Invitational Last Chance Qualifiers

Our MTG Grand Championship Invitational is just over a week away!  We are announcing 29 players that have qualified to earn invites already, however if you aren’t on the list it’s not too late!  You can earn your way on by winning one of three Last Chance Qualifier events!

Last Chance Qualifiers:  The three LCQs are our regular weekly MTG tournaments (Wednesday Modern, FNM Standard, and FNM Draft).  These events will function as usual, with their own regular prize structures, entry fees, etc.  They will all count towards the new Winter Season as well.  However, in addition to their usual duties, they will fill our final three spots in the Grand Championship Invitational.  The highest ranked (including tie-breakers) non-qualified player at each of those three events will grab the last spots.

Modern LCQ: Wednesday, January 2nd, 6:00pm

Standard LCQ: Friday, January 4th, 6:00pm

Booster Draft LCQ: Friday, January 4th, 6:30pm

Friday, January 18 – MIDNIGHT (Sealed Deck)

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.
