Check out the Knights of the Realm page for the details on all of the events, leagues, and tournaments that will be included in the Knights of the Realm.

**UPDATE**

Congratulations to Phil, our first ever Knights of the Realm Champion!  Phil will win $100 in BKG credit, and have his name added to the in-store plaque of Series Champions, joining former winners of our Tournament Series’.  Well done to the other three as well, each of whom won $25 in BKG credit just for making it this far.  Thanks to everyone that participated, and we will see you all next year when Phil will try and defend his crown!

The Season is over! Congratulations to our four finalists: Phil, Jamie, Graham and Chris, you have each won a $25.00 Gift Card to Black Knight Games. These four players will play off in a round robin playoff round to lay claim to the title of Season Champion. The Champion will win an additional $75 in credit (for a total of $100!), and will have their name carved on the Series Champion plaque on the wall! Thanks to everyone that attended the events this season, and keep your eyes open for the beginning of next season!

We will contact those in the playoffs, but the battles will happen when you are able to arrange them with one another, and you must complete at least one battle per week.  It is round robin, so each player must play against one another once.  At the end the player with the best record wins, if there is a tie we will go to a tie breaker match.   Match-Ups and results will be updated on this post:

Launch Party
We will once again be running a Launch Party on the following week (we would love to run more, but as of right now Wizards only allows one, if you want them to change this as we do feel free to email them!).  Like the Pre-Releases the Launch Party will be a Sealed Deck tournament, with a different limited edition promo-card.  It too will be $30 to enter, or $25 for Stronghold Members.
