At the end of the day, the person who collected the most most heads in those two ways will receive a bonus mercenary prize of… jeez, are there even any merc MI other than Druze? If there aren’t, then I guess the prize is a box of Druze. I’ll figure this out by game day. 😛

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!!!

Jay’s Big Bet: Infinity

So I have been looking at the number of special store projects I have been wanting to sink my teeth in, and have failed utterly to make any progress on, and it got me thinking,  Why is it that I have such a hard time completing some of these tasks.  Tim, in his guru-like way, explained to me that there were a couple of factors: I needed to get myself in a regular routine of working on special projects, I need to remove the temptation to slink back to the office and start working on other things, and I need to be accountable somehow.

In the past I have tried having a routine for projects like terrain.  I planned to be working Friday evenings every week on these kinds of projects.  It failed – and quickly too.  The problem was that Fridays are busy in the evening, and it was often hard to pull myself away from a work project that I had started working on earlier in the day – plus it was payday and for some reason the humans that work here insist on regular deposits for their efforts.  It was just too easy to justify working on something more pressing, and I often took the excuse to not work on these special long-term projects.

So I now have a new plan.  I will address the routine by working every Thursday morning on terrain and other special projects.  I will address the temptation by removing regular work projects from Thursdays entirely, and by not starting anything until I’m done my special project time at about 2pm.  But I know myself, and while this plan is solid it lacks one major thing – the accountability – and that’s where you come in.

As the owner of my own store I am the boss, and if I choose to flake there really isn’t anyone that can do anything about it.  I’m really only beholden to my family, and to my customers.  So to keep me motivated I am going to begin a series of ‘Big Bets’ where I give myself a project and a deadline, and if I can’t make it I have to give something up – something for those that were let down by my failure, so without further ado I present:

Jay’s Big Bet for the Infinity Table

I have been working on this Infinity Table for a long time – basically as long as we’ve been in the new store, and it’s embarrassing that it’s not done.  Sure, the main buildings are there, and it looks kinda neat, but I have so much more in store for it.  This table needs to be a masterpiece.  So I am betting all of my Infinity Gamers that I can finish this table – for realz – by the end of March.  If it isn’t done 100% by then, I will be offering all Infinity products – both in stock and through orders – for 20% Off for the entire month of April!  Just to clarify, it’s one or the other: if I can get the table done there’s no discount – but you will finally have an amazing table to play on.  That’s the deal.  And yes I realize that the deadline is April 1st, but this is no joke.

Jay's Big Bet Infinity

So can I do it?  Well I certainly hope so!  But even if I can’t, at least I’ll be punished like the no good, table-promising, deadline-failing, punk I am…just don’t be too sad if I make it!

~Jay
