Casual Magic Club

Starting next Friday, July 8th, 2016, GameKnight will be launching its casual Magic Club. Running every Friday from 4 pm to 6 pm, this event is aimed at new and casual players, rewarding fun and participation. We will have an organizer on hand to help teach the game, and we encourage experienced players to come out and help newer players.

Later, we’ll be looking at holding a variety of learn-to-play events, including how to draft, build a deck, balance a mana base, and more!

Entry will be just $5.00, and gets each player a booster pack, just for playing!

Game on!

Eldritch Moon Pre-Release

GameKnight Games hosts a pre-release event for the upcoming Magic: the Gathering release, Eldritch Moon. This new set for the popular trading card game continues our struggles on the world of Innistrad, a land of horror and monstrosities, werewolves and vampires, where humanity is beset on all sides by creatures of nightmare and darkness.

GameKnight will be hosting three different pre-release tournaments, and each will have a drop tournament starting after round 2 (more details below). Two of the tournaments will be held on Saturday, July 16th at the Churchill Park United Church and the third on Sunday, July 17th at GameKnight Games.

Pre-release tournaments are run in a “sealed deck” format, meaning each player receives a pre-release kit containing multiple booster packs, and from only those cards builds their 40+ card deck for the tournament. Basic land is available to borrow. At the end of the tournament, you keep all of the cards from your kit (please return your basic land!). These events are amazing ways to try out the new cards, meet new people, and have a load of fun.

Drop Tournament: After round 2 of each main event, players will have the option to drop out of the big tournament and play in the drop tournament. Perhaps you lost your first two rounds, maybe your pool just didn’t turn out very well, or maybe your deck held all of your land hostage. Whatever the reason, the drop tournament gives a chance at a fresh start. Players receive a new pre-release kit, build a whole new deck from that kit, and play in a whole new tournament.

Pre-Registration Bonus! Each booster box of Eldritch Moon for which you pre-pay saves another $5.00 off the pre-registration cost of the pre-release. Pre-pay for a full case (six booster boxes) and get your pre-release free (a $35.00 value!).

Multiple Pre-Releases: Play in multiple main events and save $5.00 off each event’s entry fee beyond the first.

Prizing: Each player will receive a bonus booster pack of Eldritch Moon when they finish a tournament, no matter their final standings.

New Dungeons & Dragons Group on Sundays

Raven_Strahd

Under raging storm clouds, the vampire Count Strahd von Zarovich stands silhouetted against the ancient walls of Castle Ravenloft. Rumbling thunder pounds the castle spires. The wind’s howling increases as he turns his gaze down toward the village of Barovia. A lightning flash rips through the darkness, but Strahd is gone. Only the howling of the wind fills the midnight air. The master of Castle Ravenloft is having guests for dinner—and you are invited.

GameKnight and Eternal Masters

Eternal Masters

The new upcoming Eternal Masters set for Magic: the Gathering releases on June 10th, and will be a very limited release. GameKnight has had to make some tough decisions on what to do with this product, and we’re here to pass that info along to you.

Booster Boxes will pre-sell for $380, taxes in. These will require full pre-payment by Monday, June 6th, 2016. We will be contacting those that have already put in their names for a box for first dibs; we are still accepting names beyond those, but due to limited quantities, can not guarantee box availability.

Booster Packs will sell for $17.50 + tax. There will be no limit per customer, but this product will NOT BE ELIGIBLE for discounts of any kind (coupons, bulk sales, etc.).

Drafts: We will hold a number of drafts following the release of Eternal Masters. These drafts will cost $60, and include a pack per person in the prize pool. Full info on these events will come soon.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
