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!
