L5R Imperial Cycle Subscription

The first Cycle in the new Legend of the Five Rings LCG is coming in hot!  Usually the packs in a cycle come out one a month, but to help get L5R to a decent card-base FFG announced that they will be releasing all six packs in the cycle over a six week span!  As always with LCGs the best way to make sure you get everything you want is to preorder the entire cycle with one of our Cycle Subscriptions!

Legend of the Five Rings Imperial Cycle

Change is coming to the Emerald Empire, as the Great Clans jockey for position in the Emperor’s courts and on the field of battle. From the opium dens in the City of Lies, to the Wall that still stands strong against the Shadowlands, to the High House of Light in the northern mountains, there are stories being told across all Rokugan—and in Legend of the Five Rings: The Card Game, you have the chance to play a role in that story unfolding.

The Imperial Cycle will be comprised of 6 Dynasty Packs, starting with Tears of Amaterasu, with one release each week!  Buy the Imperial Cycle Subscription and guarantee yourself a copy of each dynasty pack on release day.  By subscribing to the cycle you will also get 2 Hero’s Rewards (which can be redeemed for a free event, or many other reward options), and you will save $22 off our regular price as well!

The Imperial Dynasty Pack Cycle Subscription: $109.99

BKG10 News: Pirate Labs Added to New Ranges

Our Anniversary Party may have passed, but we aren’t done celebrating out 10th just yet.  We still have a few new product line announcements to make, and one major announcement coming.  Here are two of the final three new product line announcements for our 10 New Lines for 10 Years:

Pirate Lab2

Pirate Lab3We met the folks at Pirate Labs while at GAMA in Las Vegas, and their collectible card game accessories really impressed us.  I really fell in love with their ‘Slice’ deck cases, as well as some of their upcoming deck boxes that we should have soon.

Pirate Labs also has inexpensive Deck Cases for 120 Cards and 80 Cards.

Pirate Lab1One of their specialties is nice carrying cases to hold many decks.  They have backpacks, messenger bags, which we may bring in next time.  The cases we decided to try out in our first order are their ‘Small Case’ that will hold a handful of decks, and have space for things like tokens and dice as well.

Our initial order is en route already, so come by in a week or so when it gets here and check them out!



Warlord Games makes two large ranges that we have already brought in as part of our 10 Product Lines for 10 Years: Bolt Action, and Konflikt ’47.

We have also brought in a nice selection of Warlord’s real specialty: Historicals.

Warlord Games distributes rules and miniatures from all eras of military history, from the Ancient Greeks to modern times.  They also distribute the miniatures of some other smaller historicals companies, including the popular Perry Brothers Miniatures.

We have brought in books and minis from the most popular settings, including Ancients (Romans & Greeks), Pike & Shotte, Black Poweder (including US Civil War, and Napoleonics), and the already mentioned Bolt Action (WWII).

The range is truly immense though, so if there is something you wish to have that isn’t already on our shelves, let us know.  From this point forward we will be making very regular orders from Warlord directly, so we should be able to accommodate any customer orders. in good time!

Warlord 2

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!

Kickstart Zombicide: Green Horde Through BKG!

CMON continues with their retailer partnership when it comes to Kickstarters, and we are very pleased to once again partner with CMON to bring you Zombicide: Green Horde!

Why Would I Do That?

Zombicide: Green Horde continues on Zombicide: Black Plague, and is a stand-alone set that can also be mixed with other Black Plague releases.  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!
  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 $120 USD (based on that days exchange rate) for any ‘Horde 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!

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!




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!
