    Many players in Japan are curious about the international Modified format and the structure/organizing of tournaments abroad - they aren't used to Swiss pairings, TOM and other things you might take for granted. Except for the few Japanese players going to Worlds (and it seems to be VERY few this year :frown:) nobody gets a chance to play using the international Modified format.

    So that's why I'm organizing an "international-style tournament" in collaboration with experienced Osaka independent Tournament Organizer "LucarioTAI" on June 29th. ^__^

    We're running the tournament using Age-Swiss pairings in TOM, and with the INTL Modified format. I'll be giving out my collection of reverse holos and some prerelease Glaceon/Leafeon sleeves, among other things. But what I don't have much of is non-Japanese promo cards. If anyone on the Pokégym who has some leftover promo cards would be kind enough to give them to this tournament, I am sure the Japanese players attending will be VERY happy.

    In fact, ANY leftover tournament prizes are greatly appreciated. I don't have much to offer back, except for perhaps some pictures of happy Japanese players receiving your prizes. :) This wish goes out to American TOs as well (or especially them, actually - usually American TOs tend to have bigger collections of awesome tournament prizes than European TOs do), I just didn't know which forum to post in. I thought INTL Tournaments & Organized Play would be the most appropriate section for a Japanese tournament.

    We're playing using the INTL age groups Juniors, Seniors and Masters, so three winner prizes will be given out. There will be 30 players attending, and Top 4 or less will be run as top cut in each age group. Basically the City Championship structure - this will be the first ever "Osaka City Championships"!

    What a neat idea. If you haven't already, I'd suggest putting something in the official Professor forum. You might catch more profs and TOs there and maybe even POP will have a little something lying around that they can give. Good luck!

    Tego, if you'd be willing to reimburse me for shipping fees, then I would be glad to send you a ton of English promo cards. I have cards from every era, so just LMK and we can work something out.

    Right, in addition to the promo cards I sent you a list of, I also have a ton of POP 4/5/6 commons/uncommons if they're interesting to you?

    Thank you. :)

    see PM

    see PUI's forum

    Thank you for the offer. But I have to say no to this one. Reimbursing just one person would be unfair, and I don't have the money to reimburse all of the people around the world who are sending me prizes for this tournament. I hope I don't come off as ungrateful or stingy.

    What kind of stuff have you got?

    30 in total! So not a big City Championship either. ^^;

    Italian pop packs would be VERY cool. That's something truly totally unique. Regionals and City promos are great too!
    Leftovers ... well, it's an item in the video game and a Tool in the TCG ... I would also love some leftovers of Italian pizza if you've got any for me. :lol:

    What I got for you, Tego seems to be... nothing but a number of empty booster boxes. ;)

    Thank you, Leonners! :D

    Jason: I like empty booster boxes, but I guess they would break to easily if you sent them here. Anyway, no problem - it seems like I'm getting enough prizes now. ^^
