We are excited to announce that we are launching another open house in Hamilton, Ontario at Black Knight Games – one of the primer spots for hobby enthusiasts in southern Ontario.

If you are the type of player who loves high tactics, high strategy games then come out to come out and learn how to play Genesis on Sunday, September 15th. Genesis is a Tactical Collectible Card Game which pushes you to think of new strategies and new combos on the fly as you battle your opponent in arena style combat.

We will be hosting demos all day. Everyone who demos the game will walk away with a starter deck, a promo copy of the champion they play with, and they will also be entered in for a raffle to win a Genesis T-Shirt.

Since this event is happening during the release weekend of Welcome to Jaelara, we will host a booster draft starting at 1 pm for everyone who is interested in playing. The draft will be $20 for 4 booster packs and everyone will get an exclusive promo.
