POKEMON
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!”

Friday, March 18th from 6:30pm to 9pm

$5 entry fee.

Modern Age (recent tournament-legal minis only). 400 pt constructed, with a twist! At the beginning of each round, it will be randomly determined whether that round is a Bizarro round or not. If the round IS a Bizarro round, all characters will start on their last click, and turn their dials clockwise, instead of counter-clockwise, that game.

We will be playing for the Superman Enemy OP kit, consisting of limited edition game pieces for Lobo, Composite Superman, and an all-new sculpt featuring President Lex Luthor!

WHAT IS HEROCLIX?

Read the rulebook to find out more…
http://heroclix.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/2014-HeroClix-Core-Rulebook.pdf

…or stop by during a tournament to see how it’s played!

“The HeroClix Core Game is a tabletop combat game using 3-D collectible miniature figures of your favorite characters. By building a force from your collection of figures, you can take on the roles of your favorite characters and challenge your friends to epic battles!

What you need to play:
Any number of players can play a game of HeroClix, but the game plays best with two to four players. For a two-player game, you will need the following: a selection of characters, a rule book, 1 game map, 1 Powers and Abilities Card, and 2 six-sided dice (2d6). You might find that a few coins or other small objects to use as action tokens and a length of string or other object to use as a straight edge will help you play the game. When playing an advanced game with Powers and Tactics, you may also need 6 object tokens and terrain markers.”
