MTG: Kaladesh League

 

Black Knight Games is happy to announce our first Magic: the Gathering league in over a year!  The Kaladesh League will utilize a format that Wizards is testing out for official league play, and we can’t wait to give it a try!

Runs From: Monday, Octover 24th – Sunday, November 20th (4 Weeks)

Entry Fee: $20.00 (Stronghold Members get a free Hero’s Reward!)

You Get: 3 Kaladesh Booster Packs up front, and another free Kaladesh Booster Pack after you play 10 games.
Additional Buy-In: Each week (starting on Monday) players will have the option of buying an additional Kaladesh Booster Pack to add to their card pool.  Additionally whenever a player loses 3 games they may buy an additional Kaladesh Booster Pack to add to their card pool.

Format: Players are to make a deck using only the cards they open for the league, and from basic lands – decks must have at least 30 cards in them.  Matches are a single game, and you can play anyone else in the League, however you cannot play the same person twice in a row.

Monday evening will be our official meet-up time from 6pm-10pm, however games can happen any day or time of the week, but must be played at BKG.

League Tracking: Players will be given two sheets: a league tracker sheet, and a deck registration sheet.  Players track their games played on their league tracker sheet, bringing it up to the staff member whenever they wish to purchase additional packs for the league.  Players fill out all the cards they have in their pool, and add those they add later on on the deck registration sheet.

Prizes:

Players turn in their sheets at the end of the league and are given 1 point for every game played, 1 point for each win, 1 point for each additional pack purchased in the league, and 1 point for each friend they got to join the league (max 3).

Players get League Prizes for the number of points they earned throughout:

1-10 Points: One ballot for our draw for a free booster box of Aether Revolt
11-20 Points: One ballot for our draw, and one pull from our pull box.
21-30 Points: One ballot for our draw, one pull from the pull box, and 1 Hero’s Reward.
31-40 Points: Onc ballot for our draw, one pull from the pull box, and 2 Hero’s Rewards.
41 Points +: One ballow for our draw, one pull from the pull box, 2 Hero’s Rewards and a Booster Pack.

Additionally the top three players based on number of points will get a Poster-Sized double-sided magic card, with the top player selecting first (these are really cool!)

Promos: Wizards has said that they will be giving special promo double-sided Thopter/Servo Foil Tokens as a reward to us for trying the league format. Anyone that finished with at least 20 points will get one when they arrive.

Age of Sigmar: Tournament

This summer saw the release of the General’s Handbook, a wonderful resource for creating all kinds of wonderful variation in your games of Age of Sigmar.  Included within this hallowed tome are some guidelines for running tournaments – including, yes, POINTS!  Now that the craziness of summer is past us we are ready to begin running regular Age of Sigmar events using their points system.  This event is the first tournament, so please come out and help us re-launch Age of Sigmar at Black Knight Games!

When: Saturday, November 5th, 11:00am (Registration begins at 10:30am)

Entry Fee: $20.00 ($16.00 for Stronghold Members) – Includes Pizza lunch

Rounds: 3 Rounds, 2 Hours/Round.  Scenarios: Take & Hold (p.110), Blood & Glord (p.111), and Border War (p.113) – All scenarios from the General’s Handbook.

Armies & Guidelines:
Forces will be up to 1500 points, using the ‘Pitched Battle’ rules on p. 106 in the General’s Handbook.  Forces must follow the minimums for a Vanguard force (1-4 Leaders, 2+ Battleline units, 0-2 Artillery, 0-2 Behemoths).

Players may set aside any amount of points as ‘Reinforcement Points’ (p. 108 Generals Handbook).  It is from their Reinforcement Points that players may summon, or otherwise add units to the game – units added in this way DO NOT need to be decided beforehand, so players can draw from any legal miniatures they have on hand – and may even use miniatures that had died earlier in the game.

Forces must be composed exclusively from models from one of the four Grand Alliances (Order, Chaos, Death, & Destruction), and may either take Alliance Abilities from their Grand Alliance, or from their Battletome.

Warscroll Detachments may be taken, however you must pay the additional points for them from the Points section in the General’s Handbook.

Prizes: We will provide prizes for the Best General, Best Sportsman, and Best Presentation in the form of store credit (based on attendance).
