FUN CONTEST: Guess the Damage Counters!

I`m offering this fun contest for everyone to have a chance to win a Gameboy Advance Pokemon Sapphire Version game cartridge for Gameboy Advance!! What you do is try to guess the amount of Damage Counters in the jar. Closest person to the correct # of Damage counters in the jar wins the prize! In case of a tie, the winner will be decided randomly by die roll between the tied contestants. Anyone can enter this contest (meaning parents and siblings of players can enter) but each person only gets one guess slip to cast their best guess. You must be present to win.


LIMITED AMOUNT OF OFFICIAL HIDDEN LEGENDS PRERELEASE T-SHIRTS WILL BE ON SALE!!

There will be a limited amount of Official Hidden Legends Prerelease T-Shirts on sale, so you better grab them before they are gone! Prices for S-XL are $11.50 and XX-XXX are $13.00.

Theme decks, huh? I'm sure I'd do well using a theme deck instead of taking chances with 6 packs. (I have terrible luck with packs, as shown in my pathetic 25th place ranking in the last prerelease... :( )

I hope I can come, do you have any info on whether there will be one in Rockville and when?

Sensei

Mark: No one will always win! Just keep trying. If you do go the Theme Deck Route,do remember that 10- and their parents are given first priority and the Theme Deck event is limited to 24 players. :)

PS: Hope you can make it down here!The Rockville HL Prerelease will be the following weekend.Not sure which day.

Thanks for the dates, I've never been able to make it to a tourney in Stafford (my dad doesn't want to drive me somewhere thats an hour away, understandably), but I shoudl be there at Dream Wizards. Still can't believe my sister won a box at the TMTA prerelease.

`SenseiI know. I come to these tournaments just to play and have fun (and to also be an envy to the Pokemon players here in Fredericksburg :D). If you remember my performance in the Theme Deck tournament last May (or was it June?), you'll know why I would rather use a Theme Deck... ;)

Have the top door prize be a box of HL. I think that would be the best... Just my opinion. Hopefully I can still make it. Might have to work.... :mad:
If it means crying to get out of work then so be it.... :D

Sensei
05/24/2004, 08:13 PM
TG, I havent heard of PUI saying anything yet but you never know...I`ll keep everyone posted if they do something like this.

FP, A box of HL would be sweet, but I doubt that they`ll give us enough where I could do that. If they would, consider it done but I doubt it. Hope you can make it!

Too far from me. Maybe one of the Marylanders coming down?

Ah crikey! I haven`t determined what the prize for the Guess the Damage Counter Contest! Hmm...what should I get as a prize... ;)

Sensei, do you know about when the event will end and if there will be a side event? Please let there be a side event.

Sensei
06/02/2004, 11:47 AM
Usually ends around 5ish, give or take a half hour...I said usually...depends on the turnout and how many rounds. There won`t be a side event per se but we do have that Theme Deck tournament but that`ll be running simultaneously.

how about some booster drafts

Physics Squirrel
06/02/2004, 12:18 PM
That might be nice. Come to think of it, I've never done a draft, just sealed deck.

Adv1sor
06/02/2004, 12:21 PM
yeah for the booster draft idea!

Sensei
06/02/2004, 02:25 PM
That would be awesome...;)

I just got my product in so everything is set.

`Sensei

SHPanda
06/02/2004, 03:19 PM
if you have extra stuff. i'd say go for it. but then again i'd onlying saying that cuz i'd prolly be playing. or better yet
have a second thing. where only the sealed count and anyone who wants to do booster draft at the same time do draft. and if enought people come to draft. then we could sanction it. I think people would have alot more fun drafting than just sealed. but then again not everyone knows how do draft. :-\

Adv1sor
06/02/2004, 06:47 PM
I think that the last time we drafted in Stafford it went very well.

I'd love to do it again.

Physics Squirrel
06/03/2004, 11:42 AM
The main tournament could be sealed deck and just have a draft side event

SHPanda
06/03/2004, 12:35 PM
i suppose but how would we get extra hidden legends packs. well if we get 2 boxes then we could run a draft cuz lets see 8 people. 6 packs each. thats 48 packs. 12 packs left over as prizes to first and second with single elmin. though since its draft which requires alot of skill i would like to make this match play. really it would only take like 2 and 1/2 hours. not too long.

Sensei
06/03/2004, 02:00 PM
8 people Mike? What about others if they want to play? ;) You guys may just get your wish...no promises, but it just may happen.

Oh, got the limited amount of Hidden Legends shirts in! Saaaweeeet!

"Game On" Saturday!!!!

Physics Squirrel
06/03/2004, 02:10 PM
Turns out I'll probably be able to come, but I won't be able to stay for side events most likely (like the draft) :(

But I can get my shirt! :D

just have multiple drafts. or have 1 big draft but in pods of 8. but if you want to keep it simple just keep them in multiples of eight. that way its simple

Sensei
06/04/2004, 04:59 PM
OMG! Update!

The Top Door Prize is now a Classic NES Limited Edition Gameboy Advance SP!!!

I also have named the "Guess the Damage Counter" prize...it`s a Pokemon Sapphire Version Game cartridge for the Gameboy Advance!!!

Sweet,huh? ;)

As for a booster draft and/or any other side event, I`ll let everyone know for sure tomorrow. The Booster Draft looks like it may be a go(no promises though).

yeah, I had a good time....I actually won a game and I won 2 in the booster draft that followed! hopefully this is the start of growing improvement.

...Now for the reign of metagross and the fall of the great blaziken...

ShadowCard
06/06/2004, 12:45 PM
yes, the sportsmanship was excellent (I had one opponent who let me take back an energy that I attached to the wrong pokemon even though it meant the KO of his active. I didn't attack for a turn after that but unfortunately he couldn't get the 1 fighting energy card he needed to make a comeback).
Sure, there was the time where we all were yelling at each other in the second event but let us never speak of that again :p.

fall of blaziken... yummy

yes, pictures....must have pics *monotone as if a zombie*

06/06/2004, 02:13 PM
