Zendikar Rising Prerelease Week

With in-store gaming still on ice, we have put together an amazing and unique prerelease experience for the upcoming Zendikar Rising set for Magic: the Gathering – and the headline is that we are giving one random lucky participant the amazing Secret Lair: Ultimate Edition!

Entry:
Unlike our usual in-store tournaments this event-series does not have a fixed price, rather you gain access to all of our Prerelease Week content by purchasing (or preordering) any Zendikar Rising Preorder Special! With these specials you will be given a special Prerelease Week Pass, which gives you entry to all our Prerelese Week content.

All of our specials can be found on our new online store. You can also get these deals during Prerelease Week on any eligible in-store purchases too!

Prerelease Week Pass:
Our Zendikar week will feature a series of remote events that you can join in on, one every day from Friday, September 18th to release day on Friday, September 25th. Some are more involved remote gaming events, while others are quicker ‘Pack Wars’ giveaways.

DRAW: Just by buying a Prerelease Pass you will be entered in to our draw for a Secret Lair Ultimate Edition, but you can earn additional ballots for your participation in all the online events:

PACK WARS (EVERY DAY):
Every day, whether we have a bigger event or not, we will be hosting a Pack Wars giveaway. These quick online events will have each participant crack one or more booster packs, with certain conditions giving a prize to a specific participant. For example we might do a ‘Low Rare’ Pack War. Everyone opens a fresh pack on the Zoom Meeting/FB Live event and the person that had the lowest value rare in the pack is the winner and wins an instant prize (Prizes will scale based on attendance).

To participate you need to have a Prerelease Week Pass (having bought any Preorder Special), have logged in for the event, and have an unopened pack of Zendikar Rising to open! Please note that it’s possible that we will allow up to three packs to be opened in some Pack Wars, so having three unopened packs is ideal but not required.

SUN, Sep 20 Pack Wars: Log in HERE
TUE, Sep 22 Pack Wars: Log in HERE
WED, Sep 23 Pack Wars: Log in HERE
For all other Pack Wars log in to the event tied to it.

All participants in a Pack War (meaning you both logged on and opened at least one pack) will earn an additional ballot for our Secret Lair Draw!

Star Wars: May the 4th Sale

Just because we are all isolated and the in-store gaming has been put on a long hold that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate what’s important, like our holiday traditions: May the 4th be with you!

Black Knight Games is excited to be running a special sale on all Star Wars items in the store! But, since everything just takes a bit longer than it used to we will be extending the sale for a full week.

When: May 4 – May 10th

What’s the Deal!?: We have two deals for you to pick from:

The Dark Side: Buy any Star Wars item and get another Star Wars item (of equal or lesser value) for 40% OFF!

The Light Side: Buy any Star Wars item(s) and get 20% of it’s value instantly added to your customer account in store credit!

Either deal will count towards any in store items, or items that you order so long as you pay for it during the promotion!

So stay safe and secure, and May the 4th be with you!

Boxing Day: Double Bundle Deals

Hopefully everyone had a fantastic Christmas, and that you are all enjoying your holidays!

For the rest of December our fantastic Bundle Deals will continue to provide you with a great opportunity to get the most out of your holiday spending.  But for BOXING DAY ONLY we will be taking one insane step further and straight up DOUBLING everything about the Holiday Bundles!

It’s the perfect excuse to break out those Black Knight Gift Cards, and the $20 that Nana gave you for Christmas because when you spend $100 or more (before tax) you will get so much stuff!:

Doors open today at 10am, and we close at 10pm – so drop by today for our best deals this December!

Black Friday Weekend

It’s Black Friday – that means that we begin the holiday shopping season with a bang! In the past we had all kinds of crazy deals all over the place – which was fun, but sometimes confusing for folks. This time we are simplifying things with an amazing offer that everyone will like, as well as featuring some specific Doorcrasher deals for items that are on for an amazing price.

So what’s the Big Deal?

For every $100.00 you spend (before tax) in the shop, you will be given a $20.00 Gift Card – for FREE! Yep, it’s a simple as that: spend now, get more on a card. Use the card for yourself, or as a a gift!

Cool! Does it have to be $20 cards, or can we mix it up?

You get $20.00 worth of gift cards for each hundred you spend, so if you want to split that up you can do so however you want! Spent $200, but just want one card? Great you’ve got a $40 card. Spent $300 and want to split it up for your kids? No problem, two $30 cards for you. Like one kid more than the other? No problem, let’s make it a $50 and a $10 – whatever makes your life easier!

Why offer the gift cards though?

Because we like you and want you to come back! Or even better yet we want you to send your friends our way too. Getting some sweet BKG gifts out there in to the world will help us out a bunch – so thank you!

Can I just spend it right away?

We’d prefer you don’t just turn around and spend it immediately, but we’re not your boss.

Wait – you said DOORCRASHERS, that sounds fun, what is that all about?

In addition to the Gift Card promotion, which applies to the whole store, we’ve got some special items that we are looking to clear through – so we’ve got them in at an awesome price (check out price in store):

Demo Day 2019

Try more Games!  Demo Day is the best time to give new games a go, as it is sort of like our own mini-convention floor!  We will have a ton of staff & volunteers around to show you how to play all kinds of different games.  Basically it’s the best time of the year to try new games, because you can try a bunch at once, then you can use the coupons and goodies in the Goody Box to help you get into the games you like the best!

When: Saturday, November 30th, 12:00pm – 4pm.

Entry Fee: FREE!

The Goody Box: For $10.00 you can buy the BKG Goody Box – filled with awesome samples and goodies, and a free ballot for the Demo Day Draws. This is insane value for ten bucks!

Demo Day Draws: We will be drawing for a free $50.00 Black Knight Games gift card, as well as some other fun prizes.

Game Demonstrations:
We will have SO MANY stations where a BKG staff member or volunteer will be running a games demonstration.  Simply go up to them and ask to play and they will teach you the basics for the game!  In addition to that they will give you another ballot for the Demo Day Draws!

You Can Help!:
If you would like to volunteer to teach a game that you love to those attending Demo Day contact Jay and let him know!

BKG 12 Year Anniversary Party & Auction

Twelve years ago BKG opened in the smaller unit at the end of the plaza. We had fewer tables and less product to sell, but the goal was the same as it is today: to create a hub of gaming in Hamilton for those who love games. It wouldn’t have been possible without the amazing gamers in this community – so every year we host an anniversary party with those that matter most to us – you!

The Party

For 12 years our success has been that we endeavor to keep what’s great and we tinker with the rest – so the auction, ballots for great draws, cake – it’s all happening as always. We’ll be trying a few new things too – some more treats and other promotions.

When: Saturday, June 29th, 12:00pm – 6:00pm

Anniversary Draws: You will get a ballot just for walking through the door on June 29th (before 6pm), as well as another for each $20.00 you spend that day (including at the auction).  You can put your ballots in to your choice of five big prize bundles – which means you get to pick the prize you’ll attempt to win!  The draws will happen at 6pm, but if you can’t stay until then be sure to put your phone number on your ballots!

Anniversary Sale(?): When you announce a sale a couple of weeks in advance, you inevitably hurt your sales because people hold off waiting for the auction.  So we aren’t announcing a sale.  That would be silly.  And if we were to have a sale it would be important to know that it would only apply to in-stock, non-auciton items, and that it couldn’t be combined with other promotions.  But we aren’t announcing a sale, so you probably didn’t need to know that…

Duke it out for some sweet deals at this year’s auction!

Cake: There is, and always will be cake at birthday parties.  We like cake.

Parking: Just like every year we have decided to have inadequate parking at our Anniversary Party.  It’s an odd choice, but one we are committed to.  Please carpool, take transit, walk, or park nearby if you can.  And, please respect the designated parking spaces of our neighbors – they have businesses to run too!

The Auction

Our auction is an amazing opportunity for our community members to unload some unneeded items, and also the chance to grab some items at a great deal!

Silent Auction: Begins 12:00pm – As we’ve done in the past we will start things off with a Silent auction.  All lots can be bid on, and if there is competition for an item we will move on to the live auction.

Live Auction Begins 1:30pm – Any items that had at least a couple bids will be resolved at the live auction.

Submit Your Own Lots – You are welcome to bring in items to sell at the auction beginning on Monday, June 17th.  So turn your unused miniatures, RPG books, and games in to BKG Store Credit!

Full Details – All of our Auction details, including everything you need to know about can be found on our Auction Guidelines document.  Please review it before bringing in your items to sell!

So help us celebrate twelve years of Black Knight Games, after all – you helped us get here!

Free RPG Day 2019

Established in 2007, Free RPG Day works with participating hobby game retailers and RPG publishers to bring new and exclusive RPG quickstart rules and adventure modules into the hands of gamers.

Consumers WORLDWIDE will be able to grab brand new material for a variety of RPGs — no overstock, retail-priced or dead product here. The goal of Free RPG Day is to inspire gamers to play a new RPG, which will in turn, create sales through local game stores.

Black Knight Games is happy to be able to offer Free RPG Day again for 2019!  All you need to do is walk in the door on Saturday, June 15th, and we will give you a choice of FREE RPG goodies!

New Board Game Collector Card

We are very excited to be giving our board game customers another reason to support their Friendly Local Game Store: Introducing the Board Game Collector card!

How does it work?

It’s super simple: Buy Games – Get Games! Whenever you buy a board game from us worth at least $20 (well…$19.99) you’ll earn a stamp. You get a second stamp if the game is $50-$100, and a third if it’s more than $100 (all prices are pre-tax). Once you hit eleven stamps you’re golden – and get to redeem the card for up to $50.00 off a board game purchase!

The card is free, so be sure to ask for one next time you buy a game – and thank you for supporting your FLGS 😉
