Blood Bowl Home League

Blood Bowl Coaches! While the current season in Lustria is on hiatus due to an outbreak of Jungle Fever, we have our finest mages working on an alternative for those looking to get their sporting fix within the mostly plague free (aside from Nurgle of course) Blood Bowl 2!

Blood Bowl is a game that is near and dear to many of our hearts, and we would love to keep the league spirit going! We’ve created an open Ladder league on Blood Bowl 2, if you’d like to join!

Entry Fee: None, this is an open league, it’s just a spot to find games against one another!

How Do I Join?: First you will need a copy of the video game Blood Bowl 2 on PC (X-Box and others won’t be able to join the same league). Then create a new TV1000 team, and send us your Username and Team Name via messenger. You will receive an invite to the league soon!

Consider joining our BKBBL FB Group, or our Discord Server too for all that sweet smacktalk!

What about a full league with prizes and stuff? If there is interest, we may run a more traditionally structured league in the future, but in the meantime, stay in and play some Blood Bowl!

Does this mean that the BKBBL Season 17 is cancelled? No way! Jay’s goblins are doing to well for us to cancel that. We are simply taking a break from it while the gaming space is closed. Once we all get through this we will be back on the pitch!

BGX: Board Game Expo

Black Knight Games is thrilled to have been chosen as one of very few stores to play host to one of the inaugural Board Game Expo events. Board Game Expo is a new international event brought to us by the same folks that run FREE RPG Day. Basically it’s a special day of gaming, in which participants will play all kinds of board games, including almost a dozen featured games which we will have over a month early both to play and to buy! It’s almost like a Board Game Prerelease!

Date: Saturday, April 4th, 11:00am – 7:00pm

Entry Fee: FREE! We just want you to celebrate board games with us! If you’d like to support the event consider grabbing one of the featured games.

Format: Open Play of any board games, including ones we provide – or bring your own! We will have several people that have learned a bunch of the new featured games to show them off – so jump in to a game before you buy!

Featured Games: Several companies have sponsored this event, and provided us with at least a case of games over a month early to sell to our community! This is the only way to get these games until the general release! You can check out a list HERE. Any of the featured games you grab at this event will be worth double stamps on your Board Game Collector Card!

We are so excited to be able to host this premier board game event for our customers, and can’t wait for everyone to try out these amazing new games!

For the Best Painted prize players will get a ballot for having anything painted at all, a second ballot for having the whole army painted, and a third for being fully based.

Ways to earn ballots include: sportsmanshop, participation, victory, having the most CP in the event, & painting. All of the prizes will be drawn & awarded at our Holiday event in December.

Entry Fee: $20.00 -or- 6 Hero’s Rewards
All participants Get: a Hero’s Reward & Pizza Lunch

Tournament Guidelines:
The tournament will consist of 3 rounds, with 2.25 hours allotted for each round. Roll for turn 7 as normal. Chess clocks will be used (and supplied by the store). Each player will have 65 minutes on their clock at the start of each game. If you time out there will be no penalty points taken, but you cannot make any orders for the remainder of the game. Lists can be a maximum of 1995 Points. Armies from the main third edition rulebook and Uncharted Empires book may be used. Historical armies ARE NOT allowed. Army lists can be sent in early for review via FB Messenger to Alex Kus.

Unfortunately, Easy Army has not been updated, please use Good Army, https://www.goodarmylists.com/kow, to put together your army list. You should bring 4 copies of your list (one for yourself, one for each opponent). This is an open list event.

Models/Paint:  You are NOT required to have a painted army, but tournament points will awarded for paint and they will count towards your overall score and will be scored as follows.

10 – Three colour minimum on all models/units, no primer nor metal/plastic/resin showing, bases are painted and/or flocked, minimum model count or equivalent volume for all units
5 – 50% or more of the army is painted and based to the above standard
0 – Less than 50% of the army is painted and based to the above standard

Sportsmanship: This will be scored on a Pass/Fail system. Everyone starts with 10 Sportsmanship points. For each “Fail” you receive, 2 points will be deducted from your Sportsmanship score. If you Fail someone, please be prepared to explain your reasoning to the TO in detail. We are all here to have a good time.

Terrain: All tables will be set up prior to each round and will be the same for each round, for the whole field.

All tables will consist of:
2 hills, 2 forest, 2 blocking terrain, 1 difficult, 1 difficult flat, 2 walls. Terrain Height is predetermined:

Forests – Ht 9
Blocking terrain – Ht 6
Hills – Ht 3
Walls – Ht 2 obstacle
Difficult – Ht 1
Difficult flat – Ht 0

Scoring: We will be using the Blackjack Scoring System, scoring sheets will be provided on the day of the tournament.

The sheets are very easy to read and fill out once you see them, you won’t need to read over how it works if you don’t want to. I will review them with the group before starting.

Prizes: We will put $20 (minus the cost of the pizza) towards a prize pool, which will be in the form of Store Credit. The top players will split this prize pool based on how well they do!
