BKG Game Camps this Summer!

Game Camp 2

This summer we will be hosting five weeks of summer Game Camps in three different categories!  Game Camps are week-long days camps, that focus on teaching a new gamer the basics of their preferred game, giving them the tools they need to play, and a beginner package in product to get them there.  Participants get focused attention from one of our expert games instructors in a fun, casual, and safe environment.  Select from our three types of Game Camp for more information:

Game Camp MTG

Game Camp Pokemon

Game Camp AoS

Camps will have attendance caps, so the sooner you are able to register the better!  Enjoy your summer with us, and learn all about one of these great games with out Game Camps!

Black Knight Games Game Nights

BKG Game Night

Thumbs UpIn addition to the many tournaments, leagues, and special events that we run at Black Knight Games we also host many weekly Game Nights.  Games Nights are important because they provide a specific time and place for our various gaming communities to meet and grow on a regular basis.  In the past our game nights were simply designated days where players from each community would meet, but now we are making them a bit more organized, and are rewarding our participants for helping us establish solid times where players can be sure to find an opponent.

When a player attends a Game Night they will sign in with the Staff.  Any Stronghold Members that do so will be entered in to a monthly draw where five of our lucky participants that month will win a $10.00 Credit at BKG!

Game Nights are FREE, and are open to all interested players.

Players are still welcome to play other games on these nights, and can certainly play these games on other nights, however only the listed games are official Game Night games on their designated nights.  Some games, like Magic: the Gathering will have regular nights with tournaments on them (like FNM), these are their own event type, and do not fall under the ‘Game Night’ category.

Announcing Warhammer 40,000 Call to Arms!

40K Call to Arms

After a long deliberation, and sorting through dozens of survey responses Black Knight Games is proud to announce our first Call to Arms event in almost two years: Warhammer 40,000!  Call to Arms is an army-building league where many participants join in and build a new (or expand on an old) army from scratch!

This Call to Arms will feature all three of Tim, Mykk, and Jay, and is open to anyone looking to start, get back in to, expand upon, or in any other ways build an army for Warhammer 40,000.  The league will include incentives for those that finish, plenty of gaming and hobby support events, a party at the end, and will lead in to a map-based league at the finish.  If you’ve ever wondered what it would look like for Black Knight Games to go all-out on a game for a few months you are about to find out!  More information will come shortly, but we can announce that the event will begin on November 14th – which just so happens to be the release date of all the new Horus Heresy stuff (coincidence?…).

Line

We had tons of interest in the Call to Arms survey, and while we decided to begin with Warhammer 40,000 we got to see just how many people were interested in Warmachine & Hordes, as well as Age of Sigmar – and it was a ton of people.  So we have some great news for the members of those communities as well!
WMH 2

 

We are happy to announce that we will be beginning a Challenge Board league very shortly at Black Knight Games.  A challenge board is a player ranking where participants have a personalized tag on the board, and they work their way to the top by challenging and defeating their rivals.  If you can last at the top of the board for long enough you will earn a prize!  The Challenge Board League will be a great way for Warmachine & Hordes players to add a little something to their games on game nights, and at other times as well!

We are also very happy to announce that Warmachine & Hordes will be our next Call to Arms event, and we are already beginning plans for it.  So lock in April 17th on your calendar and prepare to build your army!  Jay has already made a big bet with Tim to ensure he’s got plenty of motivation to finish (beyond just beating Tim).

Warhammer AoS

Age of Sigmar is still a relatively new game at Black Knight Games, and we intend to support it well!  We have now added an Age of Sigmar game night to the calendar; beginning this month Age of Sigmar players can gather at 6pm every Thursday!  We have also scheduled our next Battle of the Scrolls event for Sunday, November 29th – so gather ye scrolls and do your best to defeat Jay and earn eternal glory…and some cool prizes too!

Age of Sigmar: Battle of the Scrolls III

AoS Battle of the Scrolls III

 

It has only been a couple of weeks, but we are all ready for the next Battle of the Scrolls event this Sunday!  This time we are upping the number of scrolls and wounds you can use so please double check the Army Composition section.

When: Sunday, September 13th, 11:00am – 6:00pm (Registration at 10:30am)

Entry Fee: $10.00 ($8.00 for Members)

Random Prizes: We will have a bunch of fun prizes to give away.  Each player will get 3 ballots to try and win prizes and will earn another ballot for each game played, and for each victory.  The player with the most victories will get a $20.00 BKG Gift Card in addition to the ballots they’ve earned.  At the end of the event we will draw for each winner and pass out the prizes!  The more participants we have the more prizes we will draw.

Open Format Tournament: Players are able to play as many times as they wish during the course of the event.  Come up to report the result and we will assign you a new opponent.  Players that arrive late or need to leave early are more than welcome!  This event is all about us all getting games in with the new Age of Sigmar rules, enjoying ourselves, and winning some cool stuff!

Age of Sigmar Army Composition: While Age of Sigmar is designed for great casual play already we will be using some fairly simple army guidelines to make sure that each force is somewhat balanced for this event.  Please have a look over our Army Building Guidelines document and assemble your forces accordingly.  Please let us know what you think/thought of these rules so that we can improve them for our next event!

Miniature Madness!

Miniature Madness

On Saturday we will be hosting a celebration of Miniature Gaming!  Bring your minis and play as many games as you can in the hopes of winning some sweet door prizes!

When: Saturday, August 1st, ALL DAY

Entry Fee: Nope – Free to All!

Gaming: Participants in Miniature Madness can play as much as they want, against whoever they want, with any miniature game system they want.  Each participant will get a sheet to record their games, opponents, and game systems played.

Discount on Minis: Anyone that participates in Miniature Madness will get a 10% Discount on the purchase of any miniatures or hobby supplies they buy that day!  In-Stock Items Only

Prizes:  We will have a bunch of fun miniatures to give away through draws during Miniature Madness.  You can earn a lot of ballots for prizes during Miniature Madness, getting one:

  • For every game you play you will get a ballot.
  • For every different game system you play you will get a ballot.
  • For every different opponent you play you will get a ballot.

So if you play only one game of Infinity – and that is all – you would get THREE BALLOTS (One for the game, one for the opponent, and one for the game system).  If you played three games of age of Sigmar against three different opponents, and one game of 40K against one of the same opponents you would earn NINE BALLOTS (four for the games played, two for the two game systems, and three for the three unique opponents you played).

So join us on Saturday to celebrate Miniature Gaming at Black Knight Games!!!

WAOS - Preorder

Warhammer Age of Sigmar is coming, and we have got you covered with everything you need to know about the newest incarnation of Warhammer!

Try it Out Now!: Black Knight Games was able to get an exclusive early copy of the Age of Sigmar set, along with a great demo board.  So, if you have any interest in trying it out come on by any time, and our staff will be more than happy to run you through a quick demo game!  We will be doing these demos for the foreseeable future, so if you can’t make it in this week drop in next week.

It is VERY Different: Age of Sigmar is more than the usual new edition – it is a completely new game.  The rules are quite different, yet maintain many familiar things.  You really need to try it to see how different and fresh it is.

The Rules are FREE!: For the first time in decades the Warhammer rules are free!  Not only can you find the full rulebook online, but also the rules for all of the existing units as well!:

Warhammer Age of Sigmar Rules & Compendiums

Why Jump In Now?:  It has been years since a big new game has had this kind of momentum at Black Knight Games.  Age of Sigmar is new, fresh, and appeals to new players.  We expect that this summer Age of Sigmar will really be big.  We’ve also got several great promotions to help you out including a draw, a painting incentive, and a special introductory price!

Age of Sigmar Draw: Anyone that purchases Age of Sigmar from Black Knight Games by August 11th (the first month of release) will automatically be entered in to a draw for $150.00 in Warhammer product of their choice!

Age of Sigmar Painting Incentive: Anyone that purchases Age of Sigmar from Black Knight Games and paints up any two Warscrolls from the set can bring them in to show us, and earn themselves $10.00 in BKG Credit!  Deadline: August 11th.

Special Introductory Price:

Stronghold Members or Miniwargaming Vault Members that buy Age of Sigmar from Black Knight Games in it’s first month of release (by August 11th), will get the set for only $124.99!  That’s a $25.00 savings!  That means that even if you AREN’T a Stronghold Member you could become one AND buy the set for the same price as the set normally is!

With all of these offers we are hoping to get as many new players playing Age of Sigmar this summer as we can.  It is truly a special experience when a brand new game catches fire in a community, and we believe we can have that with Age of Sigmar.  So join in the fun this summer as dozens of enthusiastic gamers take on a brand new game here at BKG!

Warhammer: Mega Battle this Saturday!

WFB End Times The Height of War

For the past several weeks we have been hosting a Warhammer End Times campaign called The End is Nigh.  We’ve had loads of memorable games already, but the campaign has stumbled a little bit in the past weeks as a few people have struggled to get their games in, I have been late posting game info, and overall things have slowed down.

Tomorrow we were set to host our big Week 8 Mega Battle.  Instead, I have decided to postpone the Week 8 event and replace it with a special mega battle and game day called ‘The Height of War’.

This event will include a mega battle, open to everyone – even those unable to play in the campaign.  It will also provide us with a bit of a reset on the campaign.  Hopefully players can take the time to play, and use this meet-up as a good opportunity to play or schedule matches.  It also gives us all more time to get caught up on our games, and in my case, on posting all the needed info!

So join me tomorrow for some Warhammer, and let’s get our campaign rolling again!  Here are the details:

When: Saturday, June 20th, 12:00pm

Entry Fee: None, and the event is open to all Warhammer players!

Bring: 1500pts from the army you are playing in the campaign, or if not in the campaign just bring a 1500pt army.  We will be using the Archaon Army Composition rules – so pretty much anything goes!

Prize: The winning force of the Mega Battle gets a $25.00 BKG Gift Card!

Our End Times campaign is at the Height of War, will you triumph, or fade away?
