    I plan on going with my two boys and some kid from Worcester. Looking forward to the booster draft format. We did two at Milford and it seemed like everyone had a blast! I'm even going to get to play in this one.

    Um, that's news to me. I was planning on running a plain-vanilla limited tourney ... and will not be swayed by any sort of weedling, griping, grovelling or threats. :lol:

    Perhaps physical combat, which you would engage in at your own peril ...

    :thumb: Great time! JohnnyBlaze & son, FF09Reborn, Monkey, HotMustard, PokemeBob & sons, DarkAsh, the Brothers (don't think the come here), babayaga's kids, some new people, and i forgot who else. My wife, 3 boys (youngest played in the Theme Deck Challenge!) & i went. I went 1 & 3. Can't believe it.

    Here's what i pulled:

    :fighting: 41 Machoke
    46 Rhydon
    53 Baltoy
    64 Machop
    70 Rhyhorn

    :fire: 22 Ninetales
    59 Cyndaquil X 2
    81 Vulpix

    :Grass: 16 Bellossom
    27 Tropius (RH)
    35 Gloom
    62 Gulpin
    71 Seedot X 2
    76 Surskit
    83 Zubat

    :lightning: 38 Lanturn X 2
    Chinchou X 3
    57 Chinchou
    69 Plusle X 2
    80 Voltorb X 2

    :psychic: 17 Chimecho X 2 (1rh)
    52 Baltoy X 2 (1rh)
    65 Meditite X 2
    72 Shuppet

    Water: 12 Milotic X 2 (1RH)
    23 Rain Castform
    34 Glalie
    40 Luvdisc
    47 Sealeo X 2 (1RH)
    51 Tentacruel
    58 Clamperl X 2
    61 Feebas X 2
    73 Snorunt
    75 Staryu
    77 Tentacool

    :colorless: 37 Igglybuff

    Dark: Shiftry

    Trainers:87 Ancient Tomb (RH)
    89 Island cave
    90 Life Herb

    What went into my deck i've italicized. Add in 3 :fire:, 8 Water, & 8 :lightning: and i was feeling pretty good - i got 2 Feebas and 2 Milotic!!!! 1-1 Tentacool/cruel line was ok. 1-1 Snorunt/Glalie was also ok. I debated between adding in the Vulpix/9tales or Rhydon/horn or Machop/champ lines just for something different. I decided to run Vulpix/9tales for anti-EX. So i think i got a pretty good deck.

    Round 1: HotMustard
    I go 2nd. I have Vulpix in my hand and :fire: so i decide to risk it and make Vulpix my Active. Nick's T2 Dodrio deals 40/turn and he gets Heads so can use it again! Ugh. 9tales goes down. I try to KO the Dodrio with Chinchou but don't get Lanturn and he Retreats and starts fooling around with his Castforms. I lose.

    Round 2: DarkAsh
    I go 2nd. Only Basic is Rain Castform so i plan on Cleffaing to get stuff. He has a Rhyhorn Active. I Rain and get another Basic (Chinchou i think). So i start attacking his W weak Rhyhorn. It goes down! He sends up his Meditite and then evolves to Medicham and KOs my Castform. THen starts KOing whatever i send up - Chakra Points really hurts with 6 cards in your hand. I lose.

    Round 3: PokemeBob
    You can tell we normally don't play! We think about IDing but we play. Hey i go 1st! Turns into a close game but i lose again.

    Round 4: babayaga's son
    I go 1st! Have Feebas! So Milotic comes out!!!! (My 1st 2 games had Milotic in my hand since the start. I don't know if i had it with my game with Bob). So i just power it up and start KOing his basics. I won but was a lousy game.

    So i come in 2nd to last. And i thought i had a good deck. Played my wife (she came in 3rd) and lost that one too - no energy! Pulled evos and unless basics but energy? Ugh!

    But it was fun.

    As PTO and Judge I had a great time; this was a mostly experienced group of players and I only had one ruling question all day!

    Thanks to everyone for making my first Pre-Release Tournament go off without a hitch!

    P.S.--see you in August for Fire Red/Leaf Green.
