Drink and snack purchases are available!

POKEMON YOUTH LEAGUE MEETUP
POKEMON YOUTH LEAGUE
Sundays from 4pm to 6pm

Ages 8-16
New players always welcome!

Our Pokémon Youth League provides a nearby place for you to get together with other fans of both the Pokémon Trading Card Game and the Pokémon video games, and have some fun!

Using your own cards and Pokémon video games, you can play, trade, and even earn cool prizes! The best part is that you can do all this with other Pokémon players who love collecting and playing just as much as you do!

What IS the Pokémon Trading Card Game?

Download the rules here…
http://www.pokemon.com/us/pokemon-tcg/rules

…or stop by during our events to see first-hand how the game is played!

“You are a Pokémon Trainer! You travel across the land, battling other Trainers with your Pokémon, creatures that love to battle and that have amazing powers! Your deck of cards represents your Pokémon as well as items and allies that help you on your adventures.

Trading card games are strategy based and use collectible cards to let each player customize his or her game. The best way to learn to play the Pokémon TCG is with a Trainer Kit. This has two ready-to-play decks that walk you through the game, step by step. From there, try a theme deck to get an idea of the different kinds of decks out there. Once you’re ready, you can start building your collection of cards with Pokémon TCG booster packs. Trade with your friends for the strongest Pokémon or collect all your favorites! Then, build your own 60-card deck, play with your friends, and show off your own personal Pokémon team!

In the Pokémon TCG, your Pokémon battle your opponent’s Pokémon. The first player to take all of his or her Prize cards wins! Also, if your opponent cannot draw a card at the beginning of his or her turn, or has no Pokémon left in play, you win the game!”

ECBC! THE EMERALD CITY BOOK CLUB
Tuesday, July 5th from 7pm to 8pm

ECBC meets the FIRST TUESDAY of the month from 7-8pm to discuss the featured book.

The featured book is THIS ONE SUMMER, by Mariko & Jillian Tamaki:
Every summer, Rose goes with her mom and dad to a lake house in Awago Beach. It’s their getaway, their refuge. Rose’s friend Windy is always there, too, like the little sister she never had. But this summer is different. Rose’s mom and dad won’t stop fighting, and when Rose and Windy seek a distraction from the drama, they find themselves with a whole new set of problems. One of the local teens, just a couple of years older than Rose and Windy, is caught up in something bad. It’s a summer of secrets, and sorrow, and growing up, and it’s a good thing Rose and Windy have each other.

The featured book for next meeting will be announced at the end of the current meeting.

The featured book is 20% OFF for the month leading up to its ECBC meeting!
(Discount will be calculated at the register, and does not combine with any other discounts or programs).

CypherSystemGodsoftheFall
CYPHER SYSTEM RPG: GODS OF THE FALL
The Gods are Dead – Now It`s Your Turn! There was a time when gods walked the world. Their magic pervaded the earth and the sky. From their mystical realm of Elanehtar, they brought plenty and pestilence. They judged the living and the dead. Their rule was absolute. Then Elanehtar fell to earth like a vengeful star, sparking cataclysm and plunging the world into a dark age. The gods are gone, but their works remain – scattered and broken. The world struggles under the yoke of murder, slavery, and corruption. Dark things have squirmed free of their divine prisons, and even the afterlife has become a realm of nightmares. But a power has awoken against the darkness. A divine spark struck in the hearts of new gods-in-the-making. You have this spark – the seed of godhood is within you. Can you restore what was broken before the world vanishes forever into darkness? Can you claim a place for yourself in the heavens? Awaken your divine spark, claim a dominion, and become a god in Gods of the Fall, a campaign setting book for the Cypher System roleplaying game.
