KeyForge Sunday Tournament: Triad
January 13th
1PM Tournament Start – Cost $5/player
Format: Triad (Bring 3 decks)

Each player will bring 3 decks that they can use throughout the tournament. At the start of each round, your opponent will “bench” one of them making that deck unusable for that match. Each round consists of a best-of-three match. When a player wins a game, they must switch to their other deck for the rest of the match. This means that a player must win a game with each of their non-benched decks to win the match. See below for prizes*

KeyForge Sunday Tournament: Adaptive
January 20th
1PM Tournament Start – Cost $5/player
Format: Adaptave (Bring 1 deck)

Each round of this tournament consists of best-of-three matches. Players use their own deck for game one. Players use their opponent’s deck game two. If the third game occurs, players bid chains to use the deck which won both of the previous games. The player who brought the deck starts by bidding 0 chains, and then the players take turns outbidding each other until a player declines to bid higher. The player who bid the highest uses that deck for the third game (with their bid number of chains applied at the start). See below for prizes*

KeyForge Sunday Tournament: Reversal
January 27th
1PM Tournament Start – Cost $5/player
Format: Reversal (Bring your single worst deck)

Each player brings a deck to the tournament which they believe is challenging to win with. Each round of this best of 1 tournament, opponents temporarily swap decks, and try to win the round with the deck their opponent brought. Players will keep the deck they originally bring.

During the Month of January we will be using the contents of the KeyForge Discovery Prize Kit!

Keyforge Prerelease Game Day

Keyforge Prerelease Game Day at all Gnome Games stores!

Gnome Games has more Keyforge planned for Sunday November 11.  Join us for the Keyforge Prerelease Game Day at all Gnome Games stores during the Packer Game and you could win a FREE Keyforge Deck!

Here are the Keyforge Prerelease Game Day Event Details

Keyforge Game Day Prerelease

Sunday November 11
3 PM
Entry $10
Locations – ALL GNOME GAME STORES!
Every player will get a sealed Keyforge Deck
We’ll play 3 rounds
If you don’t like your first deck, you can purchase a new deck for each round!

We’ve also got Keyforge Prerelease goodies for every player.

Don’t know how to play Keyforge?  Don’t worry – the Gnome Games staff can teach you how to play!  This is a casual event, with the emphasis on fun.  There aren’t any extra prizes for winning today – just the chance to play a new Keyforge deck or three, have fun and meet other Keyforge players.

What is Keyforge?

KeyForge: Call of the Archons is the world’s first Unique Deck Game. Every single Archon Deck that you’ll use to play is truly unique and one-of-a kind, with its own Archon and its own mixture of cards in the deck. If you pick up an Archon Deck, you know that you’re the only person in existence with access to this exact deck and its distinct combination of cards. In fact, in just the first set of KeyForge, Call of the Archons, there are more than 104,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 possible decks!

Every Archon Deck contains a full play experience with a deck that cannot be altered, meaning it’s ready to play right out of the box. Not only does this remove the need for deckbuilding or boosters, it also creates a new form of gameplay with innovative mechanics that challenges you to use every card in your deck to find the strongest and most cunning combinations. It is not the cards themselves that are powerful, but rather the interactions between them—interactions that can only be found in your deck. Your ability to make tough tactical decisions will determine your success as you and your opponent trade blows in clashes that can shift in an instant!
