This event will be run after the main Pre release. Cost is $15. Players receive at 4 EX Team Rocket Returns booster packs and 2 Team Rocket booster packs. Yes we are combining the old and the new..This is a new twist for side events but it should be fun.....

Players will build a deck using the booster draft format. Players sit in pods. Players open a booster pack, take a card and pass the remaining cards to the left or right. This continues until all boosters are opened and cards taken. Player use these cards to build a 40 card deck. Basic energy will be provided for this event.
