D&D: Mordenkainen’s Early Release!

The latest Dungeons & Dragons book, Mordenkainen’s Tomb of Foes, is here!

Since Black Knight Games is a registered WPN store, we not only get to sell the book over a week early, but we also have a special limited edition cover version of the book in stock as well – only available at WPN stores on release.

We have both editions for sale as of today, and of course they will earn you a FREE set of dice when you buy them since they are Hard Cover (and count towards our on-going RPG Book promotion).

Recall Notice: Some of the Special Edition covers have some minor scuffing on the spine.  WotC has recognized this problem, and if you would like they have issued a recall that we can take advantage of.  Most of the books we got are in pretty great shape, but if you are unsatisfied with the condition of your special edition book we can send it back and they will issue us a replacement copy for you.

This book follows in the footsteps of Xanathar’s Guide to Everything, and that was their best-selling book EVER, so this is a must-have for D&D GMs and Players alike!

Kickstart: Hellboy Board Game

Inspired by the legendary tales of horror, myth and folklore by Mike Mignola, Hellboy: The Board Game is a fully cooperative experience for 1 to 4 players. You become a member of the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defence (BPRD), ready to investigate occult threats that threaten our very existence. You will explore gothic locations, hunt down clues, discover artefacts, fight horrific creatures and face off against terrifying bosses.

This amazing new boardgame is being funded through Kickstarter, and since Black Knight Games is partnering with Mantic – you can Kickstart it through us!!

Why Would I Do That?

Hellboy is a new and unique boardgame, set in a cool world with amazing minis – what’s not to like?

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.  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!  Note: we do collect sales tax, but this would always be less than the shipping, and you are guaranteed not to owe any duty charges.
  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. Half Now/Half Later!  Normally with a Kickstarter you are asked to pledge the full amount up front, which means that your money is tied up for the entire duration of the Kickstarter.  When you pledge through BKG you have the option to only pledge half now, and pay the other half when you pick it up.
  7. Do it all for no added cost!  We agree to sell you all pledges and add-ons at exactly the same price as the Kickstarter.  So, you will pay £95 (based on that days exchange rate) for any of the Agent pledge level (Game + all stretch goals), and the equivalent for any add-ons!

Check out all the details on the Kickstarter on their KS Page!

So pledge now with Black Knight Games and be sure to get your hands on Hellboy: the Board Game!

Kickstart: Overlight

Overlight is a roleplaying game of kaleidoscopic fantasy among the shards of a broken world. It’s a world in which seven great continents hang in the sky, stacked almost vertically far above an unending sparkling sea. And shining down upon it all is a limitless light, emanating not from a great sun or moon, but from the sky itself: the hallowed Overlight.

This new and unique RPG by Renegade Games is going through Kickstarter to get going, and Black Knight Games is excited to be partnering with them to offer the game to our customers directly – you can Kickstart it through us!!

Why Would I Do That?

Kickstart: Zombicide Invasion

Zombicide: Invader is a standalone cooperative board game for 1 to 6 players, taking the trademark Zombicide action into the far reaches of space! Players control a group of Survivors trying to defend their remote mining outpost from a swarm of infected aliens controlled by the game itself. The more experience and power the Survivors earn, the more Xenos invade the facility!

This sci-fi interpretation of Zombicide is as sleek as ever, playing fast and furious. The rules have been optimized to reduce setup time and make the game flow quickly, focusing the action on the struggle between the Survivors and the Xenos.  And you can back this amazing game through Black Knight Games!

Why Would I Do That?
