  1. Prime's Blog: Judging Nationals (Part 3 of 3)

    Sunday, 29th:

    I didn’t get much sleep...again. It was alright, though. I was used to it by now. I did all the bathroom stuff, and got down to the Pokemon area for the last time. Patricia and her crew rearranged the tables for the Top Cut. The Seniors team got a few extra judges, so that every 2 games would have 1 judge watching them. Me and Kim. K were stationed at Table 1 and 2. I was a little nervous, because I would be at the top table, but Kim was such a professional, and I knew ...

  2. Prime's Blog: Judging Nationals (Part 2 of 3)

    Friday, June 27th:

    Yay! A day where I didn’t have to work the entire time! What a relief. I got my deck together, and put on my snazzy new Pokegym shirt (woo Chrisbo) and headed down to the room. I grabbed a deck sheet, and started taking apart my decks. I got it taken apart, and started writing my deck up. Things were going well…until someone walked by and told me that they didn’t need decklists from Professors. Information I could have used YESTERDAY! /adam sandler Oh well, so I ...

  4. what the pokemon tcg has given me...

    i can't even begin to list the benefits my involvement in this game has brought to my life.

    i have a shared interest with my two sons that we all enjoy.

    i've been able to travel...to worlds, to nationals...because of this game. i've met people both online and IRL that i probably would NEVER have met otherwise, and some of those people have become some of my dearest friends. i've seen people turn their lives around because of this game, and seen/heard some actual works ...

  5. Pokémon Saved My Marriage

    My wife loves to play games. Cards, Scrabble, Risk, Candyland -- it doesn't matter to her -- its all fun! She's also a collector. Antiques, Stamps, Star Wars Burger King glasses or Precious Moments -- they all give her great joy.

    Scrooge that I am, games seem boring, same rules, same pieces, same dull colors. And, how much rent are those collections paying? It must be alot because they seem to get more room and better accommodations in my home than my tools and sports equipment! ...
