  1. Oh, no, I invented that deck.

    Every once in a while some row busts out around here with people bickering about who 'invented' a deck first.

    These are the dumbest arguments on the planet.

    Top 5 Reasons Why This Is Dumb
    1. One list differs from another as rose differs from rose. Some look the same, but one smells great and the other really stinks.
    2. Most archetype decks are obvious.
    3. It doesn't matter that you invented weedle-dunsparce-torkoal.
    4. On the Internet no one knows whether you got that

  2. Postage within the U.S

    Tired of trades that get sent back for underpaid postage?

    Underpaid postage is a common problem. If you underpaid for it, you will lose that money and have to fork over more money to resend it.

    Here is a list of the breakdown:

  3. Getting Back in the Game - Ch.4: The Return?

    by , 04/14/2013 at 08:01 AM (Getting Back into the Game)
    So the league went well yesterday.

    Got to play against some kids. Seems like all of them have a very good understanding as far as how to play the game. Helped them out with building their decks, which makes me think that I could possibly make a small seminar/tutorial on how to build decks.

    Although I had to leave a little early, that didn't stop my adventures in the PTCG. I played a few sets with one of my friends, who proxied up a Mewtwo ex/Tornadus ex deck, and I ...

  5. I don't believe in Snorlax

    Snorlax, why are you always sleeping and eating all my food.
    Every time I use you in a battle, you are no good!

    With the blood stains on your belly, I don't know how you can relax
    And that is why I don't believe in Snorlax.
