MTG Brawl Weekend

Every main set that Wizards releases brings us a fun and different special Magic Weekend event, and this time the focus is Brawl. Brawl is a Commander-like format where players use cards from Standard in a smaller 60 card deck. It’s a fun and new format, and with this set WotC released a series of Brawl Decks that sold out instantly!

Since the format is so new, and those decks sold out so quickly, we are going to be running the event a little bit different by merging Commander & Brawl in to one event – check out the details:

When: Saturday, October 26th, 12:00pm

Entry Fee: $10.00 -or- 3 Hero’s Rewards.  Stronghold Members receive a Hero’s Reward for participating.

Format: Our Brawl Weekend event will place players in multiple commander/Brawl games with the aim of completing their in-game Achievement Card.

Players may bring any legal Commander Deck or Brawl Deck, however to encourage folks to try out Brawl, anyone using a Brawl Deck gets to place up to three of their Legendary Creatures in to the commander zone, and all three count as having the ‘Partner’ keyword. Additionally the prizes they get are upgraded (see below)

Prizes: Any player that completes at least 5 out of 6 of the achievements on their card will get a Throne of Eldraine Promo Pack. But, if you are playing with a Brawl Deck your Promo Pack will be upgraded to a FOIL Throne of Eldraine Promo Pack!

Additionally players will get a Throne of Eldraine booster pack for each match they play in (up to a maximum of 2 per person).

So join us to celebrate Throne of Eldraine, and give Brawl a crack!

These are one-session-long RPG experiences, run by one of our staff, and prepared well to deliver a special premium gaming experience.

In November Jay will be running The Extraordinary Adventures of Baron Munchausen, a game where participants are worldly aristocrats, explorers, and politicians telling tall tales to each other, each trying to out-do the next.

When: Saturday, November 9th, 6:00pm – 9:30pm

Painting Table NOV

We always feel that the best way to paint is in a group.  Newer painters can ask questions and learn, good painters get to show off a little, you can bounce ideas off each other, and just enjoy the company of those that share this wonderful hobby with you.  In order to allow everyone the opportunity to enjoy group painting, BKG organizes our ‘Painting Table’ events each month!

When: Sunday, November 3rd, 12:00pm – 4:00pm

Entry Fee: None, just bring your stuff and paint with us!

Details: Bring any paints you’ll need, if you don’t have them or can’t bring them we will have some available too.  Bring whatever painting project you have on the go, sit down, and get painting!  We will supply some stations, water cups, paper towel, pallets etc.

New Painters & Kids: Want to learn how to paint, or something new?  Perfect!  We will have staff sitting at the table too, and they’ll be more than happy to teach you what they know.  Other painters will be sure to pipe in with their own advice.  So, while this isn’t an organized seminar event, it will be a great spot to learn, and in some ways even better because you’ll learn tailored to the project you are working on.  We’ll even give you a starting miniature if you’ve never painted before!

Warcry Narrative League

Rule the Varanspire and prove your worth to the Everchosen in our Warcry Narrative league! Here’s how it works. Players will work through their faction’s narrative campaign as described in the Warcry rulebook. There are no assigned games, and players are encouraged to play as many games as possible throughout the duration of the league, keeping track of the upgrades and items that their fighters acquire.

The goal of the league is to complete your faction’s campaign in as few games as possible. This means that players who complete their campaign will have a minimum of 12 games, assuming they win every game they play when completing their storyline, but just because you’ve completed your story doesn’t mean you can’t be part of someone else’s! Once you’ve completed your warbands storyline you can continue to play games and level up your fighters, and we’ll also have a prize for the player with the most games by the end of the campaign, regardless of whether they’ve completed their campaign. Monsters and Mercenaries will be able to be used during the campaign.

Games can be played at Black Knight for the league any time, however players are encouraged to come out on Mondays for league night to meet others and to get more games in!

When: October 21st – November 25th

Entry Fee: $10

Prizes: We have the Warcry OP kit, which means we’ll have medals for the 3 warbands that complete their campaigns in the fewest games, as well as token sets for top 10, and posters for Best in Faction. In addition, we’ll have prizes for the warband that plays the most games, and for the best painted warband.
