At the start of the event, players will receive six boosters of Pokemon-e TCG EX: Team Magma vs. Team Aqua to construct a forty card deck. Players then have thirty minutes to build their forty card deck and list their cards from their pack and in their deck on sheets provided at the event. Basic Energy Cards will be supplied for deck construction after you have filled out all of the forms.

Tournament Structure
Players will be separated into three age groups: Ten and Under, Eleven to Fourteen, and Fifteen and Up. All rounds will be played with the TCG sealed deck that you constructed from the six packs of EX: Team Magma vs. Team Aqua. Players will have 30 minutes to complete each round, with each player putting out 4 Prize cards. Players who win a game receive three points, a player who loses a game receives zero points. If a tie occurs between prizes, there is no sudden death, both players receive one point.
