Magic League is a great way to explore the new set, and create a motivation to play new players and get some fun casual games in.  Plus you can win a cool giant-sized card!

Shadow War Armageddon League

 

Start: Tuesday May 16th

Duration: 6 Weeks + Playoff

Registration fee: $10.00 (free if bought the Shadow War Rulebook or Boxes Set from us)

Register by: Sunday, May 14th

Black Knight Games will be hosting a league for Shadow War: Armageddon starting Tuesday May 16 using the rules found in the Shadow War book. The league will run for six weeks, followed by a playoff for the top eight players. Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 players, as well as awards for the best painted kill team, and the best sport.

Each participant will start the league with a new kill team of up to 1000 points made from any of the lists printed in the rulebook, also available at https://www.warhammer-community.com/2017/04/22/shadow-war-armageddon-pre-order-and-downloadsgw-homepage-post-4/

Players will be assigned a weekly game against a specific opponent, and these weekly games will have a scenario assigned by the organizer. The role of Attacker/Defender will be assigned in relevant scenarios. Players will have one week to organize and play these games with their opponent. Games may be played any time during the week, a Facebook group will be created where players are encouraged to organize their games. In the event that a time cannot be arranged despite sufficient effort from both players, those players will be allowed to play a game against another participant in the league in place of the assigned game. In addition to assigned games, each player may play up to one additional game per week against an opponent of their choosing. These extra games will follow all of the normal rules and participating kill teams will suffer casualties and gain experience as usual.

After the 6 weeks of assigned games are completed, the 8 players with the highest Promethium Cache on their roster will advance to a bracketed playoff (1 vs. 8, 2 vs. 7 etc.) In the event of a tie, head to head results will be the first tie breaker, followed by total games played, followed by number of rostered team members, finally decided by a coin flip.

Best Sport and presentation awards will be voted for in poles on the Facebook page and awarded at the end of the league.

MTG: Amonkhet League

Black Knight Games will be running an Amonkhet Magic League, starting this Monday!

When: Amonkhet League games can played at any time, ‘League Night’ will be Mondays, but other official MTG event days will be a great time to get games in before/in between rounds as well – plus you can pretty much always find a game of MTG at Black Knight.

League will be four weeks long.

Play With: Players build a 30 card deck from their cards, so it’s like a mini-sealed deck event.  Each week players may buy more packs (1 per week, and also 1 for each three match-losses).  Basic lands are provided.

Entry Fee: To join players simply buy 3 Amonkhet Boosters for their entry fee.  Players will be permitted to buy more as the league goes on if they wish.

You Get: Players that join up get a cool Amonkhet Card Box, and a Match Card (after playing 1 match)

Prize: At the end of the League we will give out a massive poster-sized magic card, as well as some booster packs for the top 3 players overall (we will award 1 point per match played and 1 point per match win).

So join us for some Amonkhet fun, fit in whenever you wish!

Blood Bowl: Winter League

Blood Bowl is back, and we have our Winter League scheduled to help you get some games in right away!

When: The Winter League begins on November 26th

Entry Fee: FREE

How it Works:

Players submit their team to Black Knight Games, and we add it to the BKBBL Winter League online tracker, at BKBBL.COM

Then players are able to play and schedule games with anyone else in the league, as much as they would like!  Players track their games on the site which helps everyone update their rosters, keeping skills, upgrades, purchases, and injuries sorted out.

Players looking to find opponents can either drop by the shop in hopes of finding a pick-up game, or they can search opponents on our BKBBL Facebook group!

Blood Bowl is a great game, but it really excels when you are able to advance your team from game to game, acquiring new skills, injuries, and new players to replace the…less living ones…  So join up for our Winter League and get the most out of your team!

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!

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.

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).

WMH Call to Arms

WMH C2A Banner

Edit:  With the announcement of a brand new edition of Warmachine and Hordes coming in June, we’re postponing the start date of our Call to Arms to line up with this release.  The Call to Arms will officially begin June 12th.

It has been some time since our last Call to Arms event at Black Knight Games for WMH, but we are bringing it back bigger and better than ever!  We are proud to announce Call to Arms: Warmachine & Hordes – the best way to build your army!

What is Call to Arms?:

Call to Arms is a multi-event army building league.  In Call to Arms participants sign up to get their army from zero to finished within a certain time-frame.  Throughout the Call to Arms we will have hobby and gaming events to help create a sense of community among all the participants.  By the end we have a great group of players, who all have a similar sized painted army, and who have been playing games and building their armies together.  It is a truly unifying and exciting gaming experience and yields a strong gaming community afterwards.

How do I join?

Participants can either pay a $30.00 entry fee to join the Call to Arms, or they can get in free by making a $150.00 purchase towards the building of their army (this purchase can be for anything needed to get your army going, be it miniatures, paints, rule books, hobby tools etc.).

What do I get for joining?

In addition to getting a great experience participants of the Call to Arms will get free or discounted entry into all Call to Arms labeled events, as well as the league that will begin once Call to Arms ends.  Participants will get an invitation to the Call to Arms Party, which will be exclusive for Call to Arms participants and will have pizza, drinks, gaming, and will be after the store closes for the day.  Participants will get first crack at spots on the league map when our Warmachine league begins.

There will be achievement prizes for a few special accomplishments for some of those that achieve their deadline goal: First Completed Force, Most Completed Models, Best Painted, & Best Concept.

Additionally any participant that completely finishes their force by the deadline will earn a special, custom Call to Arms reward.sm BK Steampunk v2

What is the goal?

Participants aim to complete a fresh 75 point Warmachine or Hordes army from unpainted to finished by the deadline of Sunday, September 4th.  Participants can use any miniatures that they own that are not yet painted.  Miniatures can be pre-assembled and primed.  If participants wish to use miniatures they already own they can either bring them by to show the staff they aren’t yet painted, or send us a picture of them.

The biggest goal of the Call to Arms is to have a great community of player grow throughout it.  Most of the staff will be getting involved, we will be posting blogs about the events and the forces in progress.  We invite everyone to join the BKG Warmachine Facebook group to showcase your projects, and make plans to play games or paint.  Basically if you’ve ever wanted to see what would happen if Black Knight Games went all-out on a game – this is it.  So don’t miss out.  Gather your forces, and plan out some painting time, and let’s all build our armies together!
