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.

Age of Sigmar: April Tournament

Join us for a Warhammer Age of Sigmar tournament using the points from the General’s Handbook!

When: Saturday, April 1, 11:00am (Registration begins at 10:30am)

Entry Fee: $20.00 ($16.00 for Stronghold Members) – Includes Pizza lunch

Rounds: 3 Rounds, 2 Hours & 20mins/Round. Scenarios: Three Places of Power (p.114), Blood & Glory (p.111), and Border War (p.113) – All scenarios from the General’s Handbook.

Bring: Your army, your rules, dice, two copies of your army list.

Armies & Guidelines:
Forces will be ‘Vanguard’ forces to 1500 points, using the ‘Pitched Battle’ rules on p. 106 in the General’s Handbook. Forces must follow the minimums for a Vanguard force (1-4 Leaders, 2+ Battleline units, 0-2 Artillery, 0-2 Behemoths).

Players may set aside any amount of points as ‘Reinforcement Points’ (p. 108 Generals Handbook). It is from their Reinforcement Points that players may summon, or otherwise add units to the game – units added in this way DO NOT need to be decided beforehand, so players can draw from any legal miniatures they have on hand – and may even use miniatures that had died earlier in the game.

Forces must be composed exclusively from models from one of the four Grand Alliances (Order, Chaos, Death, & Destruction), and may either take Alliance Abilities from their Grand Alliance, or from their Battletome.

Warscroll Detachments may be taken, however you must pay the additional points for them from the Points section in the General’s Handbook.

Prizes: We will provide prizes for the top 3 players overall, as well as bonus prizes for ‘Best Presentation’ and ‘Best Sport’ (as voted on by the participants), prizes take the form of store credit (based on attendance).
