LCG Night

Good morning!

GameKnight is going to be starting a Tuesday night LCG night starting next week, August 2nd, 2016. We figure there’s not much in the way of options in town on Tuesday for LCGs at the moment, so we think it’ll be a great time to get some games in.

Our organizer for this will be Graham “G-Rhymes” Reimer, and will take place from 6:30 pm to 10:00 pm every Tuesday in our upstairs gaming room. All LCGs will be welcome.

Our plan is to eventually use both new and previous OP kits for prizing, and possibly hold periodic tournaments if demand is there.

We really hope you will come out and Game On!

Pokemon TCG Steam Siege Prerelease

Steam Siege Splash

GameKnight is proud to host a Pokemon Prerelease, featuring the upcoming new set, XY Steam Siege! Starting at 12:00 pm noon on Saturday, July 23rd, 2016, this will be Winnipeg’s first glimpse at all of the new Pokemon cards.

Entry will be $35.00 per player.

This tournament is a sealed deck tournament with a new twist: each player will receive a special prerelease box containing a 22-card Prerelease pack to provide a solid foundation, plus four 10-card booster packs and an exclusive foil promo card. Players will use the cards from their Prerelease box, plus basic Energy cards provided by GameKnight, to build a 40-card deck. Players may not trade any cards prior to the end of the tournament, and may not use any cards other than those opened in their sealed packs and basic energy.

The tournament will include multiple Swiss-style rounds. Each single-match round will be played for four prize cards (instead of six).

At the end of the tournament, each player will receive a further THREE booster packs, just for participating!

Pre-registration is available for this tournament at GameKnight Games starting now. Seating is limited to 40 players, so reserve your spot today!
