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!

BKG 10 News: MTG Championships!

Playmat Champion Spring 2017

Black Knight Games will be crowning three Store Champions for Magic: the Gathering in the first ever season of our MTG Store Championships!  The top players from the following Weekly Game Nights will be designated ‘Champion’:

Wednesday Night Modern
Friday Night Magic: Standard
Friday Night Magic: Booster Draft

The Champion will be the single player with the most Match Wins over the course of the Spring Season.  In the case of a tie – the individuals will play-off for the honour.

The Champions will be rewarded with a Spring 2017 Champion playmat, that can only be earned by these three individuals – the art and exact design of that playmat will never again be used by us, so these will truly be a limited edition opportunity!

Additionally the current Store Champion for each Game Night will always have a bounty on their heads during that specific Game Night, in the same way that the previous week’s winner does!  That means that the first person to beat them each week wins a Hero’s Reward – and if nobody does they do!

The Spring Season will run from today, Wednesday April 5th to Friday June 30th.  Every one of the Game Nights within that window, including tonight’s, will count towards the overall standings – which we will post often.
