Since the first Hidden Legends Prereleases tournaments are two weeks away, thought I would go ahead and start the Attendance post. If one of the mods would sticky it for me that would be great, and I will update it as numbers are reported.

Jeez, the numbers are WAY down, including mine....

36 for ST. Louis, Missouri,

12 for 10-
13 for 11-14
11 for 15+

Was actually greater than expected, due to the number of preReleases in the area...Collinsville, Columbia, Sedalia....they got some of my usual players (I know)

Good news was there were AT LEAST 8 new players...and the great AARON BRZ showed up as a surprise!!!!

Congrats to Mason (10-), going 6-0 to take the OVERALL title...Electrode Explosion deck...

I'll post for Jon (ScythKing) since he is busing doing double duty this weekend in Murfreesboro running the prerelease there after having the East region of TN in East Ridge Sat. 18 total players. 10-: 9 kids (at least 2 where new). 11-14: 2, 15 +: 7. Congrats to the winners! 10-: Austin, 11-14, Matthew and 15 +: Ryan! Fun was had by all and the cards looked great!

PS If anymore would have shown up at the Comic store, we woulda been playing on the floor.

Things were not so good in the New York area, I don't know whether this weekend was special or whether everybody wants to play at the Pokemon Center next weekend.

Staten Island had 14 (12 15+, 2 11-14, 0 10-)
Brooklyn had 8 (6 15+, 2 11-14, 0 10-)

I am amazed that the owners of the two stores couldnt get someone to play in the 10- groups. Show up, pay $15 for your pack, lose all you games and you still get a booster!

With so many Graduations and Open Houses, I don't expect the numbers for my next two to get any better. Not sure who at Nintendo and Pokemon USA picks the dates for these things. They sure are doing a good job of making attendance low. Don't expect any better for the next prerelease series due to Worlds and Gencon. Maybe the next prerelease will be during Thanksgiving or Christmas.

Hey GLB...

Remember, that at this Pre release, there was the Theme deck challenge that took place during the main tournament for new players...I had six new players play and have a wonderful time...

PTOs and TOs should include any of the Theme Deck players in their total attendance.....

Here are the numbers for the "Houston Hidden Legends Pre-release".

Looking at some of the other Pre-releases, I guess that we were not as bad as I first thought. Especially, with the "Pokemon Space Party" holding Pre-releases at NASA on June 5th and 6th that were FREE.


"10-Under" Age Group: 7-players

"11-14" Age Group: 15-players

"15-Over" Age Group: 20-players

"Pre-Constructed Deck Tournemanet": 2-players (15-Over)

Total: 44-players

We were down a total of 16-players from the last Pre-release.

PS: We did have a great time at NASA on Friday and Sunday!!!

This proves that Mr. Collinsworth does know how to put on quite the event! TO's, if you're out for competition on quality, this is the man to BEAT! :D

*end subliminal message*

Also, Mr Hunt can put on a nice event too! Cuhraaaaaazy deals on those boxes, man ;)

Too bad those red-hot prices aren't staying red-hot for a long enough time so I could gather enough money to buy one =(
