New Master Europa Products in Stock! - 6/23/2008
The largest war in history is the subject of the largest and most comprehensive wargame project undertaken: All of World War II in Europe, North Africa, and the Near East at divisional level with semi-monthly turns and a scale of 16 miles per hex. Using a common game system and interlocking maps, each game is playable separately or as a link in the full Europa™ series of games. This award winning series of games has been played since the 1973 release of "Drang Nach Osten" (now Fire in the East). Since then, an expanding array of games and modules have been published, covering Europe, North Africa, and the Near East. From the Soviet Union's Ural Mountains to the Rock of Gibraltar in Spain. From the Norwegion Arctic to the Suez Canal. Europa™ puts YOU in command of the armies, navies, and air forces that fought the battles of World War II!
What is MASTER EUROPA?
MASTER EUROPA is a set of modules that provide a complete replacement of the rules and charts that come with the Europa™ series of games. You MUST have the Europa™ series in order to make use of these modules. Each module is linked to a specified Europa™ game produced by GRD Games. Several of the modules do not have a corresponding game (perhaps in the future they will) but are designed to allow the player to incorporate added action into scenarios, and combine the games into larger campaigns if desired.
Why MASTER EUROPA?
Tom Johson began the design work seeking to find more realistic rules (Messing with the system - MWTS) that would maintain the ease of play in the system. As he researched and began looking deeper to determine where things were "not quite right" (in his view) the project just grew. His great good fortune to have operated the Europa™ Demo Team (Task Force Johnson, then TF GRD) for quite a few years allowed him the opportunity to discuss the system with literally hundreds of players, from all over the world. The areas most often mentioned that 'needed' something, and the hundreds of ideas that were proposed allowed him to try to guide the project along what was the most "common agreement" areas of change. However, as things moved along, the need to change things became wider and wider to avoid conflicts with the carefully researched answers he was developing. He finally decided that it would be better to place the sum total of the research and design work into a complete alternative rules package. This allows the rules to flow and ensures there are no hidden faults caused by the two systems (Rules As Written (RAW) & Master). In the final analysis then, you the player make the choices and the decisions as to how you play the game.

Imported Miniatures Sale!! Confrontation, Lord of the Rings and Full Thrust on sale! - 7/14/2007
We have put several of our most popular imported lines of miniatures on sale:
Rackham - Confrontation, Cadwallon and AT-43 from France
Mithril - Lord of the Rings and Middle Earth Miniatures from England
Ground Zero Games - Full Thrust Miniatures from England
As those of you familiar with these products know, these are VERY high quality games and miniatures. Sales have been a bit slow on them, and that is because you've told me with the exchange rates the current retail is too high. So we have listened and slashed the prices!!! Get these great miniatures while you can, we probably won't be restocking them unless the dollar rises significantly in value.

I'm pleased to announce that due to a new pricing arrangement we are able to offer you the very popular Dungeons & Dragons, Dreamblade, and Star Wars miniatures at a new low price - $119.95 per case and $89.95 per case on the Huge Packs!!! That’s over 30% off of retail! The most recent Night Below and Alliance and Empire releases are included in this as well. And we aren't bumping up our shipping costs to make up for it, fair shipping prices are included in the deal!!!
Free RPG Day is Here! - 6/23/2007
Welcome to the first annual FREE RPG DAY - starting Saturday June 23rd. Over 300 retailers nationwide participated and we are happy to be one of them. As a collector and purveyor of rare items, I know how exciting it is to get a chance to grab some potential future rarities for free. We have a number of cool freebies to give away including free adventures for Warhammer Fantasy, Dungeon Crawl Classics, Paizo's Gamemastery, Tunnels & Trolls and more. Free RPG day products are purchased by the retailer and then given away to their customers. We expect that many of these products will have quite a bit of value to the collector in the future. To ensure that everyone gets a fair crack at the 1st annual Free RPG Day, and that the products aren't snatched up en masse by people looking to resell them, we have set the following limits on them:
1) In store pickup - 3 items, no duplicates, so you can't take 3 of the new Dungeon Crawl module, but you can get 1 of three different cool items.
2) Website order - Same as above, 3 items per order, no duplicates.
Q. I thought Free RPG Day was supposed to be free?
A. It is. You may stop at our shop, or your local participating retailer, and pickup 3 free products of your choice, no charge or purchase necessary. Mail order costs a significant amount of postage and labor. In order to get any sort of volume of these products in to meet the demand of our mail order division, we had to pay several hundred dollars, so for mail order we ask they go out in reasonable quantity with an order. Please note, we routinely offer a lot of items on our site at .01 (our site won't allow .00 price to be input) as bonus items, so feel free to add a few of those as well if you'd like!
Q. I want all your copies of the Sinister Secret of Whiterock from Goodman Games and I will pay you a lot of money for them! What do you say?
A. We could sell these all at a premium, but we have decided to give them away free in the spirit of Free RPG Day.
Q. I want more then 3 items, I'd like to pickup an extra item for a friend, etc, can you help me?
A. If we know you and/or you are a regular customer of NKG we may make minor exceptions to the above rules. We will also do what makes common sense, if you would rather place a larger order then some smaller ones to try and get more items please just place your order and add them. We expect to have enough product to do this a bit. Do not add lots of multiples to your order. Please feel free to email us with questions or suggestions.
Q. I will just add them to my cart anyways, how come your system doesn't stop me?
A. It would be expensive to ask programmers to develop functionality to handle this one situation. Our packers will be instructed to remove items that abuse the spirit of these rules and your order will be shipped without them.
Q. What products are included in Free RPG Day?
A. Here's a list of the products offered:
Paizo - Gamemastery Modules - Hollow's Last Hope - Module

Noble Knight Games
Noble Knight Games Welcomes Mithril Miniatures - Full Line of Classic Lord of the Rings Miniatures - 6/1/2007
Founded in 1987, Mithril Miniatures has been since dedicated to the creation and faithful portrayal of miniature figures as inspired by J.R.R. Tolkien’s world of Middle-earth, in such seminal work as “The Lord of the Rings” and “The Hobbit.”
The company’s goal is to recreate the characters from these literatures and imbue the figurines as much as possible with the atmosphere and feel of Middle-earth. To that end, Mithril has invested painstaking research for the range, both in costume and character appearance to ensure authenticity and consistency with Tolkien’s original vision.
We at Noble Knight Games have a full stock of Mithril’s range. Fans of the Middle-earth will surely appreciate Mithril’s representations of all the celebrated characters, while taking advantage of NKG’s discounted prices! You can own either Aragorn or Gimli at Helm’s Deep for $6.95, one of the Nine Nazgul between $7.95 and $11.95, or any one of the early ring bearers like Elrond or Galadriel ($11.95). We also have the entire “M” series — supplied undercoated and ready to paint — that reproduced the rest of the cast, i.e., minor and generic roles like foot infantrymen and officers from various nations (starting at $6.95 per pack), hobbits of the Shire ($15.95), orcs of Mordor ($11.95), etc. For keepsake or actual play in Tolkien’s Middle-earth, you’ll never be at a loss with figures for virtually every part present!
