OPHIDIAN 2350 GAME DEMONSTRATION!
Saturday, April 16th from noon to 5pm

Double Exposure, Inc. Envoy and Emerald City present an Ophidian 2350 game demonstration!

Herald Bill Eastman will be with us once again to demonstrate the game. He will be teaching new players how to play the game and to show off to the public all the fantastic components that make up this excellent game!

Here’s some info about the game:

The world of Ophidian 2350 is centered around gladiatorial combat. These gladiators are aliens, bio-enhanced humans, mystics, and all sorts of otherworldly beings.
Theme aside, this CCG, originally released at Gen Con 2003, has some unusual new mechanics that separate it from the pack.

First, Players use “credits” to supply their gladiators with equipment and minions (support characters). Ophidian 2350 has a mechanic called “The Flow”. Each card has a “+” or “-” on it. Play a positively charged card, and you can keep playing cards. Play a negatively charged card and your turn ends and your opponent can start playing their cards. Basically, it helps provide a little “momentum” incentive, and adds strategy.

Creating combos that allow you to keep The Flow while you prepare for a killer blow, while making sure that the crowd is entertained … that’s the key to victory! If you don’t entertain the crowd, your opponent can use their own popularity with the crowd to turn The Flow against you … so show off and impress that crowd!

Here’s a link to the BoardGameGeek page for the game:

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!”
