BKG Discord Community Hub

In an effort to expand

We’ve been absolutely loving the enthusiasm and commitment you’ve all been putting into the Black Knight in Exile Facebook Group and we are pleased to announce another part of our Black Knight in Exile online community, our official Discord server!

You can join the server here: https://discord.gg/Hr2v3vw

We’re hoping this will allow for the people that make up our awesome communities (you) to get together and hobby, play, and share your excitement about games!

This is all a little new for us, so let us know if you have any suggestions for the server, and stay tuned for more things to come!

Black Knight Response to COVID-19 (UPDATED 03/24)

UPDATE: March 24, 2020
In accordance with the order from the Government of Ontario we will be shutting our doors to customers. Starting on March 25th we will only be offering purchases via our new BKG Delivery model.

Given the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation worldwide we at Black Knight Games have been monitoring the situation very closely. This is something that will affect people in different ways – different levels of anxiety are reasonable. Our Doors are closed to customers, however we are still doing no-touch delivery. This is a situation that seems to change daily, but we will be addressing this situation in the following ways:

We are adjusting the hours that we are open/available
With no events, and no in-stors shopping we are not open to the public. You can still message us via Facebook Messenger, or call us. You can expect to be answered within the following hours (although you may get an answer at other times):
WEEKDAYS: 2:00pm – 8:00pm
SAT/SUN: 12:00pm – 5:00pm

We have closed all in-store play & shopping
We have made the difficult decision to cancel all in-store play and shopping. This is in accordance with all local, provincial, and federal recommendations.

If you have an order that we can’t fulfill, or paid for an event we won’t be running, we will absolutely refund you (this will be a hard few weeks for small businesses like ours, so if we can refund you in store credit that would be our preference, however we will accommodate your needs).

We will bring the game to your door
We have launched BKG Delivery to the Greater-Hamilton & Brantford areas to serve our customers better who are making a responsible decision to stay home – but who need some stuff to play with! These orders will be paid for and picked in advance, and can be sent to your home, or you can pick them up in our parking lot. All deliveries will be no-touch deliveries. You may have Check out the BKG Delivery page for all the details.

We are taking in-house precautions to keep staff safe
We have hand-sanitizer readily available, are wiping down commonly touched surfaces, and taking extra care to clean regularly. Staff will be scheduled to have almost no contact with each other, and (as mentioned) all deliveries will be no-touch deliveries. Any staff that begin to show symptoms will self-isolate.

We are investing in our community from afar
We have launched a new online community Black Knight in Exile where we will continue to engage our community by encouraging participants to share their gaming and hobby experiences at home. We will announce Challenges, and Prizes too, to keep our community engagement up!

At Black Knight Games community is everything. For many of us this may be no more than an inconvenient time, but for some the risks should be considered differently. With the right cautious approach we can continue to serve the needs of this community while keeping everyone safe. This is something we need to do together. So thank you for your support, stay home if you can, and keep that love of games going strong!

BKG Delivery

With the need for social distancing and self-isolation becoming more and more crucial, we at Black Knight Games have been looking for ways to continue to serve our customers and the members of our gaming communities. It is also very important for us to keep our staff employed though all this.

We are very happy to announce the beginning of a new home-delivery program: BKG Delivery! Here are the details:

Fee: There is a $10.00 Delivery Charge, this fee can be waived if you are in need, but please note that this fee will be used to keep our staff working.

Placing an Order: You can place an order in a variety of ways. Call us at 905-296-3401 and we can talk with you, and make sure we have what you need. You can then pay over the phone with a credit card. Alternatively you can message the store’s FB Page, or email us at our Sales email address. Payments can also be made via PayPal – really we just want to make it as convenient as possible for you to continue to support your Friendly Local Game Store.

Range: We will be serving the greater Hamilton, and Brantford areas. This includes Dundas, Ancaster, Binbrook, Mt Hope, and Stony Creek.

We have an extended range of Grimsby, Paris, Caledonia, Cayuga, and Burlington. Deliveries in that range may come with an added charge, and may not happen as quickly. If you are much further out than that contact us and we can arrange some other kind of delivery. We very much want to work with you.

Delivery: We will aim to deliver the same day, or following day. If we expect delivery to take longer than that we will do our best to let you know. We will ask for any unique delivery instructions you may have, which will include delivery windows that work for you. All deliveries will be no-contact! We are practicing care when picking your items, but we still advise that you wipe down any items you get if possible when you get them as the virus is know to stay on surfaces, especially plastic, for some time.

Pick-Ups: If you would prefer to pick up your items you absolutely can! The process to order is the same, and there is no delivery fee. Arrange a pick-up time, contact use when you get here, and we will deliver your items to you outside in our parking lot.

BKG Benefits: When you shop from us instead of some bigger online place you are helping us keep our doors open through this crisis. As a business focused on community these are difficult times, but they won’t stop us from offering the best service we can. You will continue to get your Stronghold Points, and have access to other perks like Store Credit as well. And if you have a specific need or concern we will do our best to work on a solution for you.

MTG Celebration 2019

This has been an amazing year of Magic: the Gathering gaming at Black Knight Games, and we feel like celebrating! As a thank you to all the amazing folks that have made our year so fun we will be hosting a special event later this month in place of our usual Friday Night Magic, and it’ll be FREE!

Entry Fee: No, I just said it’s free – Merry Christmas and all that!

When: Friday, December 27, 6:30pm – 9:30pm

Format: Mini Masters! This may not be a format that everyone is familiar with, but it’s awesome. Basically you get a free booster pack, add 3 of each land, and play with that. Win a match, and add a booster, keep going until you have 4 packs! Yep, you get up to 4 boosters for a free event.

Does this count towards the MTG Standings in any way?: Nope, it’s actually perfectly timed because the week before the Fall Season ends, and the week after is all Last Chance Qualifiers for the MTG Invitational, so this fun freebie is the perfect filler event!

However you spend the holidays we really hope that it’s full of fun, family, and games.

Finally, our last weekly events on the Wednesday (Jan 2nd) and Friday (Jan 4th) before the Grand Championship will qualify three more players (the highest ranked unqualified player in Modern, Standard, and Draft).

Merry Christmas!

We hope that your Christmas is full of fun, friends, food, family – and Games!

Age of Sigmar ITC Tournament

When: Saturday, December 2, 11:00am (Registration begins at 10am)

Entry Fee: $20.00 -or- 6 Hero’s Rewards -or- Bring a Christmas Gift for someone worth no more than $20.00

Lunch: A Pizza Lunch is included in your entry, including three slices, and either two pops/waters or one energy drink/juice.

Stronghold Members Get: a Hero’s Reward

Format: 1500pts, 3 Rounds, Two Hours per Round

Forces: Every army must follow an Allegience (which can be a Grand Alliance, like Chaos, or a more specific one, like Breyherd).  Forces are selected using the Matched Play rules (General’s Handbook 2017, p.70), following the ‘Battlehost’ guidelines and utilizing the Rules of One and other ‘Matched Play’ rules.

Scenarios: We will be using ITC scenarios TBD.

Event Scoring: We will be using the Best Coast Pairings app for scoring, so if you have it (or want to download it) you can do so to make reporting and tracking even easier – but you don’t need to have it as our organizers will.  Scoring follows the ITC scoring for each scenario.

Prizes: Rather than giving out prizes to everyone, we will have a holiday gift-giving prize-structure.  Each person either brings a Gift as their entry fee (and if they do it goes in to the gift pool), or if they paid in we will put in a good Age of Sigmar themed gift to the prize pool.  Everyone will end up with a prize – given out in a random order.  So, this is a more casual prize structure, with the only real reward for winning is your ITC points, and the pride of conquering your friends and foes!
