BKG News: Final Fantasy TCG & Offworld Designs T-Shirts Now Available!

As part of our tenth anniversary preparations Black Knight Games has announced that we will be bringing in ten brand new product lines!  Here are the fourth and fifth:

OffWorld Designs

Offworld Designs T-Shirts & Accessories

Offworld1Offworld Designs makes some great T-shirts and accessories for gamer culture featuring clever and funny designs.  In their extensive catalog they have designs for Firefly, Malifaux, Star Wars, Roleplaying, and all kinds of nerdy references.

Black Knight Games has brought in a selection of our favorites from Offworld Designs, including eight T-Shirt designs, in four sizes, two hats, some dice bags, and a fun ‘Bag of Holding’ messenger bag.

In addition to the items that we have in stock, we will be able to order and of their designs, in any style and size (sweaters, ladies Ts, etc.)  So if you see something that is on their site the speaks directly to you – we can get it for you!

Final Fantasy 2

Final Fantasy TCG

Final Fantasy1The Final Fantasy Trading Card Game is set in the Final Fantasy universe, and explores the stories of many of the story lines featured in the video game.

The Finaly Fantasy TCG was released this past December in North America – but supply was brutally low.  At the time we were interested in carrying it, but we couldn’t get more than a box or two – so rather than make many people disappointed we elected to wait until their supply issues were resolved.

Final Fantasy 3That wait is over.

Black Knight Games will have stock of the new Opus II set, as well as the three current starter decks featuring the characters from Final Fantasy X, Final Fantasy VIII, and Final Fantasy VII !

So for anime fans, and lovers of this storied video game series give this game a look!  It will be available in store this week.

 

 

BKG 10 News: Bolt Action Now in Stock!

Black Knight Games is thrilled to announce the third new product line that we are bringing in as part of our Year 10 Celebration: Bolt Action!

Bolt Action Logo

Bolt Action 1Bolt Action is a World War II table top miniatures game, scaled to 28mm (roughly the scale of games like Warhammer and Warmachine).  It is managed by the biggest companies in historicals: Warlord Games.  The game has loads of minis to choose from, and a ton of excellent plastic kits.

You can find out all about Bolt Action on the Warlord Games website.

We will be making regular orders with them, so if you see something you want from Bolt Action, or any of the other Warlord ranges like Black Powder, Dr Who, Pike and Shotte, and Hail Caesar, we will be able to order them in for you!

Bolt Action 2We’ve dabbled a little bit with Bolt Action in the past, but it’s been some time, so we are thrilled to be bringing in a large core range, which is officially in stock at BKG as of today!

Come on in and check out our new Bolt Action display, which includes the Band of Brothers Starer Set, Starter Sets for other armies as well, the Order Dice, and a bunch of tanks and infantry for the Soviet Union, Germany, the British, and good ol’ USA.  The Bolt Action Rulebook is also in stock – of course!

One additional feature of Bolt Action, that we think is pretty cool, is that it combines with another title from Warlod: Konflict ’47 (an alternate history Wierd War game set in post-WWII with mechs and robots) – so if you buy German Grenadiers they are usable in two games.

You: “But Jay, you don’t carry Konflict ’47!”

Jay: “Ah, well that is true…for now…”

Bolt Action 3

 

BKG 10 News: Rumbleslam & Crit Success Join BKG Lineup!

As part of our 10 Year Celebration, we announced that we will be carrying ten new product lines for ten years in business!  We are very happy to announce two of the ten right now!:

Crit21/10: Crit Success Dice Rings:

Crit1Crit Success makes amazingly cool dice rings for everything from D6s to D20s, and for kinds of other fun themes like Rock Paper Scissor, and RPG Alignments!  Their dice rings come in a variety of colours, and all are durable, and extra cool.  They are the perfect accessory for the gamer in your life, and come in a variety of sizes.

They also have ‘counter rings’ that don’t spin freely, and instead interlock to stay at a certain spot.  These can be amazing for things like tracking life, or experience, or other things in your games.

crit3Black Knight Games will be bringing in the D20 selection, and 0-99 Counter Ring selection to start – their most popular two ranges, which includes a variety of sizes and colours to choose from.  We will be re-ordering from them, however, and can therefor get any style and size you may want as a special order!

All Crit Success rings will be only $29.99, and include a LIFE TIME EXCHANGE POLICY for any possible future defects!

 

 

rumbleslam-logo

2/10: Rumbleslam:

rumbleslam3Ladies and Gentlemen, in this corner we have the newest extreme fantasy sports miniatures game: Rrrruuuummmmbblllleeeslammmm!

Rumbleslam is a mash up of Blood Bowl and the WWE.  This fast paced high action gaming as goblins jump off the turnbuckles, dark elves bounce from the ropes, and dwarfs pick up werewolves to throw out of the ring!

rumbleslam2The game has been developed by TTCombat, who make some of the amazing terrain we sell, and the minis are really great, and the game looks hilariously fun.

Black Knight Games has brought in the entire range, and it will be available for sale later this week!  That includes, the core sets, the team boxes, and all the Star Players packs!

rumbleslam1This game will make an excellent side-game, since you only need a single team of five to play.  If you like wrestling, or blood bowl, we believe that you will love this game.  And if you like both!?  Well this might be the perfect game for you!

We have a very cool 3D ring that we will be putting together, and very soon you will be able to come by the shop for a demo of the game – so drop in soon and give Rumbleslam a try!

 

So – There we have the first two brand new ranges coming to BKG as part of our celebration, stay tuned to BKG 10 News for another eight – and even more exciting announcements!

You Can Kickstart Rising Sun Through BKG!

Yes, you read that right, you can actually Kickstart the amazing Rising Sun game by CMON, Guillotine Games, and Studio McVey through Black Knight Games!  We have officially partnered with CMON to offer our customers CMON Kickstarters right through our shop!

Why Would I Do That?

If you are interested in the Rising Sun game, 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!
  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 $100 USD (based on that days exchange rate) for any Daimyo Pledge, 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!

Warmachine & Hordes MK3 Global Shortage for Release

wmh3

The Problem:

On Friday Privateer Press sent out a release to all retailers informing us that the first wave of the new Warmachine & Hordes product due for release on June 29th will fall far short of demand.  After contacting our distributors we have found that we will almost certainly receive far less stock on the initial release than expected.  We did end up getting the Premium kit (one of only two stores in Canada to get it), but beyond that it will be very tight with pre-orders for many items already passing our expected allocation.

Sherry Yeary, President of Privateer Press, wrote us:

We had no expectation that we could be sold out before launch and in fact believed we had ordered enough inventory to keep us supplied for several months.  After all, our hopes are to grow the audience for WARMACHINE and HORDES with the new editions, and that requires that we have the product to introduce new players to the game. It’s thrilling that demand has exceeded our wildest expectations but we do know that supply shortages are a problem when you have customers who want the product, and we must apologize for this very unforeseen inconvenience. We are working hard with our vendors to expedite restock orders and are hoping to have card decks back in stock in July, books back in stock in August, and Battleboxes following as quickly as possible after that.

With so many people wanting the new product, and us having a Call to Arms event coinciding with the release, this poses a harsh problem for us and our eager Warmachine & Hordes players.

Our Solution:

In order to make sure that as many people as possible get to enjoy the new edition on release day we will be doing our best to allocate the limited number of product that we do get as evenly as possible.  We will be contacting all those that have already made a pre-order with us, and asking them to select one deck and one battlegroup to list as ‘Priority’.  Customers ordering more than one may also list further options in descending order of importance to them if they wish.  With this information we will be able to assign the allocated product to those based on need, allowing more people to at least have one faction to start working on.  This should also allow us to lock in some items with a guarantee for customers.  Preference will be awarded based on giving people their ‘Priority ‘ product, followed by the date that it was ordered.

Any customer that is unable to get product that they pre-ordered on release day will be entitled to a full refund if they wish, or they can keep the pre-order with us and their order will be the top of the list when the second wave of product does arrive.
