Kickstart: Song of Ice & Fire Through BKG

CMON continues to impres with their Kickstarter retailer partnership, and we are very excited to once again partner with CMON to bring you what could be their biggest Kickstarter yet: A Song of Ice and Fire Miniatures Game!

Why Would I Do That?

A Song of Ice and Fire brings the incredibly popular Game of Thrones world to the realm of table top miniature games.  Finally you can assemble an army of Lannisters to invade the vale, or call your Stark bannermen to defend the north in an incredible looking, easily accessible, miniatures game.  If you are interested in this exciting release, you can Kickstart it now.  However, by pledging through Black Knight Games instead you get several benefits:

  1. You don’t need to pay shipping!  Normally you would need to pay a separate shipping fee when the item ships, this can often be as much as $50+ Canadian!  Pledging through us means you don’t pay that, nor do you need to remember to check your email to make the payment – or risk missing out!  Note: we do collect sales tax, but this would always be less than the shipping, and you are guaranteed not to owe any duty charges.
  2. Support your FLGS!  One hang up for many people when using Kickstarter is that you are bypassing your Friendly Local Game Store.  By cutting out the FLGSs you aren’t doing anything to keep their doors open to you and the other members of the local gaming community.  But, through this Kickstarter you DO support your FLGS – AND – you support the game you are excited about!
  3. Get the game early, just like if you had Kickstarted it on your own!
  4. Get any of the add-ons you want, just like if you had Kickstarted it on your own!
  5. Gain the flexibility of making a pledge, changes to a pledge, or additions up to a month after the Kickstarter!  As a partner store we are able to modify our order as long as their pledge manager remains open, so pledging with us allows you all kinds of flexibility – even the ability to pledge late!
  6. Do it all for no added cost!  Our agreement with CMON requires us to sell you all pledges and add-ons at exactly the same price as the Kickstarter.  So, you will pay $150 USD (based on that days exchange rate) for any ‘Hand of the King’, and the equivalent for any add-ons!

How Do I Pledge?

Simply come in to BKG, or give us a call, and we will sell you the pledge just like any customer order!

But, I Already Pledged Online – I Didn’t Know This Was An Option!

Kickstarter allows you to cancel Pledges before the cut off date, and CMON is really good about that kind of thing too.  Simply cancel and re-pledge with us!  Either way they’re getting the sale, and this way you gain all the above benefits!  If it’s after the cut off you can message them, explain you want to pledge with a participating partner retailer, and they shouldn’t have an issue with cancelling the pledge.

So get this amazing game, and help out your FLGS in the process!

BKG Kickstarters Update

Black Knight Games has partnered with Cool Mini Or Not to bring all their big Kickstarter projects to you right through your FLGS!  Here is an update on some of those projects:




Rising Sun was the first CMON Kickstarter that we have partnered with.  Many of you have pledged through us already, but it’s not too late to do so.  The Rising Sun Pledge Manager closes on Friday, July 7th, which means that anyone wishing to pledge, or to modify their pledge, must do so by the end of Wednesday, July 5th to give us time to process the pledges!

This Kickstarter looks like a huge success, and its an incredible deal – definitely give our original post a look to see why it’s awesome to pledge through us!


Zombicide: Green Horde is an exciting major expansion to the Zombicide: Black Plague game.  It is stand alone, but can also be mixed with the original.  The Kickstarter has ended for it, but the Pledge Manager hasn’t even opened yet, so there is still plenty of time to pledge through us, or to modify your pledge through us!

Give our original post on Zombicide Green Horde a look, and find out why it would be a great addition to your collection, and why pledging through BKG is the best way to get it!


UPDATE: This KS is now live!  Check out our page for all the details!

The next Kickstarter by CMON will be a VERY big one.  The Song of Ice and Fire Miniatures Game looks to be a juggernaut, as it has been growing in hype since GAMA.  You can be sure that loads of stretch goals will be unlocked on this one, so it’s going to be a phoenominal deal (especially if you pledge through us and save yourself that shipping!).   So keep your eyes out for that one- expected this summer, and remember to pledge through BKG to save shipping, and support your Friendly Local Game Store!
