Miniature Madness!

Miniature Madness

On Saturday we will be hosting a celebration of Miniature Gaming!  Bring your minis and play as many games as you can in the hopes of winning some sweet door prizes!

When: Saturday, August 1st, ALL DAY

Entry Fee: Nope – Free to All!

Gaming: Participants in Miniature Madness can play as much as they want, against whoever they want, with any miniature game system they want.  Each participant will get a sheet to record their games, opponents, and game systems played.

Discount on Minis: Anyone that participates in Miniature Madness will get a 10% Discount on the purchase of any miniatures or hobby supplies they buy that day!  In-Stock Items Only

Prizes:  We will have a bunch of fun miniatures to give away through draws during Miniature Madness.  You can earn a lot of ballots for prizes during Miniature Madness, getting one:

  • For every game you play you will get a ballot.
  • For every different game system you play you will get a ballot.
  • For every different opponent you play you will get a ballot.

So if you play only one game of Infinity – and that is all – you would get THREE BALLOTS (One for the game, one for the opponent, and one for the game system).  If you played three games of age of Sigmar against three different opponents, and one game of 40K against one of the same opponents you would earn NINE BALLOTS (four for the games played, two for the two game systems, and three for the three unique opponents you played).

So join us on Saturday to celebrate Miniature Gaming at Black Knight Games!!!

Tabletop Day!

We Reward You For Gaming: At Tabletop Day not only will you get a FREE chance to play as many games as you want around here, but we’ll actually reward you for it!  For every unique game you play on Tabletop Day you will get one point towards all sorts of great prizes, game expansions, and other goodies.  Last year there was a huge variety of great goodies to get including copies of The Resistance, expansions for Munchkin, Gloom, Catan, 7 Wonders, Buttons, and dozens of others.  This year is shaping up to be even better!!!

Demonstrate Your Favs: International Tabletop Day will be the perfect opportunity to teach new players your favorite games because everyone will be looking for new games to try.  So bring a demo set of your miniature or collectible game, or show off that hidden gem of a board game that you wish you could play more!

Call to Arms: Flames of War & Bolt Action

FoW C2A

Unique to this Call to Arms event, The Flames of War game system is being joined by Bolt Action from Warlord Games. You have two game systems to choose from!  Yes, that’s right! Introducing BOLT  ACTION!  Bolt Action (BA) is not Flames of War (FOW) on a larger scale. The game mechanics are vastly different and the rules govern battlefield actions not covered in FOW like; opportunity fire, cumulative pin markers and friendly fire.  This is an opportunity to start an army for either game system or expand the one that you already have. 

Begins: Monday, March 17th, 2014

Deadline: Sun, May 4th, 2014

Entry Fee: $100.00

You Get: $110.00 worth of miniatures for either of the armies. Just by signing up you get a deal!

Victory Conditions:  It is the goal of all participants to complete a 900 point Flames of War army or a 900 point Bolt Action army. If you finish painting your army choice by the deadline and attend a minimum of two Call to Arms Events you’ll get a percentage of the Victory Pool.  There will be five weekly Call to Arms events.

Victory Pool:  Black Knight Games will put $10 per participant into a Victory Pool.  This pool will be split evenly among the participants that complete the victory conditions by the deadline.

Armies:  If you are starting a new Army it’s composition must have the compulsory units, plus attachments if desired. If you are expanding an existing army any units will do. The miniatures used for the Call to Arms must be unpainted at the start.

Call to Arms Events: Fred, the FOW Standard Bearer, will run the Call to Arms events. These events will focus on army assembly, painting, rules discussions, terrain and game play. Each participant must attend at least two Call to Arms events before the deadline to satisfy the victory conditions, including the finale.  Call to Arms events give you a great opportunity to meet, play, and paint with other gamers at BKG.  Together we will motivate each other to get these armies done! See below for details.

Knight of the Realm: In addition to all of the benefits of the Call to Arms those players who have joined the Knights of the Realm for FOW will earn points toward their season standing. Points Available (Max 20). Join the Call to Arms league: 5pts. Complete your Victory Conditions: 10pts. Attend an Event: 2pts.

November Events

Last month I made a post at the start of the month listing everything that was coming up in the month of October, and it seemed to be a popular idea, so we’re going to make it a regular thing!  It’s hard to believe it’s already November!  This November we have several great event that you should pay attention to.  The first is Demo Day 2013: a massive annual event where we arrange to have people to teach and demo a pile of different games.  Add to that a bunch of great goodies and samples and you’ve got the perfect opportunity to try new games!  We’re also running our first ever GPT for Magic: the Gathering, which is the highest level of tournament we’ve ever done!  Red Card Members are invited to join me for our first Red Card Meeting – giving them some inside info on the store and our plans going forward, and giving us the chance to hear feedback from some of our most valued customers!  Add to that new leagues for Dungeons & Dragons, Blood Bowl, and Malifaux, as well as all our regular tournaments and you’ve got plenty of reasons to stop by the shop for some gaming!

FoW: Tank Aces League & Tournaments

Tank Aces

 

Have You ever wondered what it would be like if you could roll for Tiger Ace Skills, like the Germans do?

NOW you can!

In Tank Aces 2013 you will earn experience points which you can spend on Tank Ace skills.

Battle through the French countryside and by destroying your enemy or even by just surviving your Ace will become stronger and more lethal!

Our last Tank Aces league was the most successful Flames of War league ever at Black Knight Games.  We have truly developed a consistent and devoted group of gamers, and we hope to build on that with our next Tank Aces league!  This time our league will be book-ended by two tournaments, which will be open to all – but if you play in the league they will offer you added bonuses.

Begins: Saturday September 14th

Ends: Sunday November 17th

Entry Fee: $5.00 (prize support will go to the top three players)

Added details can be found on the BKG Forum.

Come and join the Tank Ace 2013 league and become the top Ace, if you dare!
