View Full Version : Brookfield, WI Gym Challenge Sat. 6/25!

Brookfield is hosting a Gym Challenge!

Saturday, June 25th 2005
Knights of Columbus Meeting Hall
4700 N. 145th St.
Brookfield, WI 53005
Doors open at 11:00; first round starts at 12:00 noon

After giving it a lot of thought and discussion with a number of players, I have decided that the side event will be Theme Deck Sealed, 2-on-2 (single player, 2 active Pokémon).

Each player will get a sealed theme deck (vintage) and 2 boosters of Legendary Collections. (If you remember that SET (http://www.pojo.com/priceguide/usLegendaryCollection.html) , then you're a vet!)

Theme decks will be assigned randomly.

We have:

Jungle Decks: Water Blast (F/W) and Power Reserve (P/G)

Fossil Decks: Bodyguard (G/F) and Lockdown (W/R)

Team Rocket Decks: Trouble (P/G) and Devastation (G/W) *

Base Set 2 Decks: Lightning Bug (L/G), Hot Water (R/W), Psych Out (P/W), and 2-Player Starter Decks (F/W)

* Team Rocket decks will come with 2 Team Rocket Boosters (http://www.pojo.com/priceguide/usrocket.html) instead of Legendary Collection Boosters.

A list of theme deck contents can be found at Pokébeach (http://www.pokebeach.com/themedecks/themedeck.shtml).

This event will be sanctioned under Limited 2-on-2 Fun Format Rules (http://op.pokemon-tcg.com/tournaments/pdfs/Tournament%20Formats.pdf).

This should be a nice, low-pressure event that requires no prior experience or preparation. It will be perfect for the younger players and fun for all ages. The event will run concurrently with the top 8 playoffs.

The cost will be $10, and prizes will be EMERALD boosters. :biggrin:

Are you all interested in a side event to be run during the top 8?

If so, what format?

05/17/2005, 05:14 PM
2 on 2 (2 active pokemon each, not 2 players vs 2 players)

I really like the 2-active format, but many players would not be prepared for it.

Psht. I'm not going down so easily this next time - especially by you, Ryan. Last weekend was a fluke for certain. It was the start of my long list of things that went wrong, so I'm ready to say that it wasn't supposed to go that way.

Also, please note that it says EVENTUALLY. That doesn't specify Niles on the 12th or Brookfield on the 25th. However, if it is up to me, Brookfield, Manitowoc, and/or Niles will be mine to claim!

Rulemaster
05/18/2005, 02:00 PM
now ryan is talking crud. ryan what was your record on saturday? me and my bro made T16, he made T8. Pooka T4. Menoknow had the same record i did but missed on resistance. your team still has a lot more players than us, but still we seem to be doing well. are you including chuck and ness on your team?

ST Pika
05/18/2005, 07:54 PM
Chuck and Ness are SOTG team... that's seperate from TIY or Team Chicago...

Since at this tournament I'll be another year older... (bday on June 20)... I'll have to put that age wisdom to good use before I take to the streets in Tulsa...

Tormentedsoul14
05/18/2005, 09:22 PM
How about a weird format that really isnt out...how about an advanced modified format? (just a rought guess at the next modified) Ive heard more FR/LG on so how about FR/LG on make it a challenge.

~Mr. T~

menoknow
05/18/2005, 10:12 PM
Or, as Cory G. suggested at my prerelease, have a tournament limited to 1 set where you bring your own deck instead of drafting.

TR/TRR draft could be fun too (WotC and nintendo set). I've been wanting to run one of those but havent had the chance.

Anything 'different' can be fun. Only issue is making sure people can have a deck prepared that they can use.

I LOVE the 2vs2 format though.

Alrighty Kevin. It'll be good to see you in our home town! You can win 11-14 since I'm taking 15+.

From what I understand, the judges will be TormentedSoul14 and hypnotoad1234 are going to be the judges, with more possible.

Should be near 100% that I'll be there. Just got a different job today where I'll work Mon-Thurs, 40 hours a week, 10.50/hr with Friday optional. Never work weekends. So if I can't make it, work shouldn't be the reason!

Get to give me 1 weeks notice at Wendy's today where in 2 weeks I got a total of about 12 hours in, lol.

I'm going to have more money than I'll know what to do with!

MUAHAHAHAHA

Doesn't really matter since trips and invites filter down. I could lose to you in the finals and still go to Worlds. :cool:

menoknow
05/25/2005, 08:14 PM
Still have to work this Friday, Sat, Sun at Wendy's. Start my new job next Wednesday. I'll be working M-Th, 3:30-1:30am and maybe Fridays 3:30-9 or so. So people might have troubles getting a hold of me soon during the week.

I smell like Burgers now...just made em for 3 and 2/3rds hours.

Bullados--how much money you need? :-p I'll try to find uses for it all. I'll start by paying my parents everything I'm going to owe them for college. About 2/3rds of the way there already. Should be able to pay them off in less than a month! Then all the money I make will be MINE MINE MINE!

So this isn't considered spam.....

I'll try to think up a new deck for the gym challenges in w/e spare time I can find. Or just touch up my last deck, whatever works. Hopefully I can find some decent time to playtest before then. I was planning on going to TN this weekend for regionals but my parents were against it. So I'll have to win a gym. I just want to win one of this bigger tourneys and earn myself some more respect in the poke world. I always seem to have at least 1 game where I have a horrible start that I just can't overcome and then miss the top cut on resistance. My time will come! We need more than just Pooka to bring home titles for us cheeseheads!

HypnosProjectHQ
05/25/2005, 08:57 PM
Thats the spirit, Jeff! Team Wisconsin will prevail! I can win Brookfield and you can take 2nd to me, with my trip passing down to you because I'll already have won Niles. I wish... I'll win at least one Gym, though.

Tormentedsoul14
05/25/2005, 09:01 PM

It will be on the calendar. It will be a good prequel to nationals.

Thats for certain. I'll finally get some practice for Nationals. Its kind of hard to do so at league when half or more of the people aren't playing the popular decks and are using special rules. Maybe if I built my deck and a popular deck or two, then maybe I could get some more practice in.

That sucks. Well, I'll see you at Niles and Manitowoc then, won't I? I assume you'll be playing in those, though, so we'll be against each other. Tough luck. :biggrin:

Can anybody carry me to the event? I had my first day of work last night. I was told 3:30-1:30,now its 3:30pm-2:30am. 11hours of carrying wood, boxes of nails, hammering, etc. Right hand and forearm are still sore. I can only imagine how I'll feel when I start working 4 days a week next week. Mon-Thursdays I'm going to have about 0 time for myself. WOrk 3:30-2:30am. Sleep until 11ish. List stuff and package and ship stuff for ebay most of the time from 11-3. Got 35 emails (I think all ebay related) from 3pm yesterday until noon today. Paypal accountgained about $160 as well. And I made over $100 at work. If I don't win a trip, maybe I'll justfly to world first class!

Looks like it'll be a loud day in Brookfield. PLEASE don't ban the yelling of Pooka, Jared.

Also, as I do before every tourney, I guess the top 8. Well, I'm not in 11-14 anymore, so lemme give you my assumption for 11-14. It does not include any IL players because I'm actually doubting any for 11-14 because they'll prolly all already have trips and not bother coming.

11-14 Top 4 Educated Guess
-Jas J.
-Matt T.
-Alex S.
-Peter D.

And I'm assuming pairings will look something like this...
Jas J. vs Peter D.
Matt T. vs Alex S.

And if what I've done for these people is right....
TOP 2
Jas J. vs Matt T.

My best friend versus my cousin in the finals.... oh how I can imagine that, oddly enough.

Naice, a $10 limited event with new set prizes, always a good idea. Been looking to do another TDC since the last one. Will the theme decks be randomly distributed, or will we have a choice?

HypnosProjectHQ

Bah... I'll have the money. Hopefully I can get extremely lucky and get a good theme deck unlike last time I played in one of these sealed tournies. Last time I remember having to play with a Base Set Starter Deck. Talk about a drag. Woo-whoo! Machamp! ...

No offense but I think if you had gone up directly against Pooka he would have beaten you. You gotta learn the actual placings in a tournament don't really matter, you either make t8 or you win. It's the luck of the draw to see who plays who.

no they do seedings. player 1st in standings plays player 8th in standings, so its not all luck of the draw

To everyone- does Manitowoc have a lot of 11-14 players?

Immy, your placings in the t8 depend on what you win record is which in my opinion can be largely luck based. And yes, manitowoc does have a lot of 11-14 players, nearly as many as 15+ if I remember.

06/19/2005, 05:57 AM
Yay! That means Wisconsin will have... *counts on fingers*... 8 players at Nationals this year! One for 11-14 (Cody K.) and 7 for 15+ (Derrick K., Matt E., Eric E., Jeff W., Abe M., Kyle S., and Jordan B.)! Go Team Wisconsin! The majority of us will actually be there!

BTW, I can start the countdown. We're close enough.
5 days until Brookfield Gym Challenge
6 days until Manitowoc Gym Challenge
12 days until United States Nationals

Also, I found what way we're taking to the Gym Challenge on Saturday. Its so unbelievably simple. Lisbon Rd is part of County K. County K starts right at the end of my driveway way out here in Oconomowoc. We're taking K all the way to 145th street! :biggrin:

*Looks in Sig*
Oh yeah! Also, I'm gonna be doing some reports for Yoshi's PIRN live during the 3 days I'm there. So, if you aren't going, listen to PIRN for Nationals updates from the man himself... moi! Oui! Je suis francias! Haha!

You got that right, PokeWisconsin! Since this is my last midwest tourney, I have to quote this...

"Now this looks like a job for me... so everybody just follow me... cause we need a little controversy... cause it feels so empty without me..."~ (Eminem from the Eminem Show)

Amen to that... I will miss y'all... but I gotta go to the land of Tornadoes. Hopefully I can actually make top 8 for once, lol.

The fast Zappy has a high slugging percentage and leads the league in OHKOs.

So who is actually going to be here for the 10- division? My cousin and Calvin?

BTW, Matt and Eric, my mom won't let me go with you guys to Manitowoc because she doesn't want to drive me all the way to Whitewater to meet you guys. Instead, I will be going with Jared. Just letting you know since I haven't been able to talk to you guys on AIM lately.

If ANYONE has Heal Energy or Gloom to trade, I will trade for them BEFORE the tournament. I need 4 Heal Energy and 3 Gloom. I need them for all the decks I need to build for the tournament (Mine, my brother's, and both of my cousins').

How far is it from Brookfield to Manitowoc.

Well "hyp" as far as i can see it, if you take out all the ppl that already have their trips to worlds, the finals at Brookfiled should be:
Pooka vs Axe (myself)

Sorry to break your heart Derrik but thats the way its gonna end up. And not only that the one of us that doesnt win Brookfield is gonna win Manitwat. So good luck at nationals.

Quinn will be there in Brookfield, but has a trip already. (It pushes down right?)
We aren't going on Sunday.

The trips get handed down to the next person who hasn't won one yet.

SLOW DECK

Pooka vs Axe (myself)


I will make an even money bet that neither of you win it. (That is not an insult, just a statement that field is fairly strong.) IE sort of like a bet that Tiger Woods versus the rest of the field in a Golf Tournament. But when you remove the "trips" players, it does make give you guys a strong shot. But, I can think of several players that can get the best of you on "any given Saturday".

so theres a good chance that a trip will be passed down depending on how the pairings go in the finals

I was talking about the odds of a trip being passed down after the winner is declared. In 15+ theres a good chance, and theres a few winners from the other ages as well.

I know I post almost every other post on this thread, but I've got a message from the Marriland forums.


Is it possible for me to head to brooksfield and enter, even though I didn't go to Niles, IL? Plus that would be cool to actually try out my deck against some people on the forums, And HypnosProject has the same stratagy, using Pidgeot for Quick Search ^^, though for me I always get my pidgeot in 15 turns or less *plans to go to Brooksfield*

Also, I know Marriland himself is coming. He said so in a PM to me last night.

That means more players yet!

It'll be a sad, sad day seeing you leave the midwest. We've had fun, but I guess I'll still see you around.

See you all Saturday in Brookfield (My Grandma is taking me) and Sunday in Manitowoc (going with Jared and Danny).

To my knowledge, there are 8 people coming from TIY. Sure wish I could be one of them, but I gotta hold down the fort at TIY this time. But my son Marriland (Devin) is riding with Mathorn, so that's good. :) I'm sure it'll be a fantastic event. I wish everyone good luck and a lot of fun!
