Time for our next Prerelease - Crystal Guardians!
When: Sunday, August 13th
Where: North Suburban Women's Club (down the street from TIY)
6320 N 2nd St Rockford,IL 61111
(about 4 blocks North of E.Riverside on N. 2nd St(Hwy 251). On corner across from Big Lots mini-mall.)
Time: Registration at 11:30 for each event Both tourneys start at 12:30
We will be holding both the standard Sanctioned PreRelease and also a more casual Theme Deck Challenge for the newer players, or those who aren't as comfortable building a deck from scratch. So bring your little brothers, sisters, moms, dads, or friends you've been trying to teach so they can join in the fun and get some new cards without the pressure of building a deck. If you bring in a new player (one who hasn't played at a TIY Premiere Event before) and they compete in either tourney, you'll get a bonus Sponsor pack!
And keep in mind the spirit of a Prerelease is non-competitive, with no real pressure to win, which is why everyone will recieve prizes at the end. The main objective is to have fun and check out all the new cards!
But don't worry, we'll have LOTS of random pack giveaways throughout the day, not to mention some other great door prizes too! Everyone gets a chance!
I also have some really cool door prizes to give out now... besides packs and sleeves and such, I also have several Pokemon Tshirts, of course a free Pass to our next Prerelease worth $20, and also a sealed Gamecube Demo game that includes Super Mario Strikers, Mario Party 7 and Pokemon XD Gale of Darkness, all on this one demo disk. So those are some pretty nifty door prizes I'd say!
And of course, just like at all of our Premiere Events at TIY, I'll have my homemade cookies for everyone to enjoy!
Crystal Guardians PreRelease Main event
Cost: $20 for 6 boosters to build the deck with, plus 2 prize packs at the end.
Main event - at 12:30 - Each player will recieve 6 booster packs of the new set (to keep) and may start opening their packs. Players will each build their own 40 card deck using only those cards to play in the tourney (basic energies are provided). At 1:00 the tourney will begin with 20 minute rounds.
Prizes: All participants will recieve 2 Crystal Guardians prize packs at the end of the tourney, a special promo card, a Crystal Guardians PreRelease pin, and other exclusive EX Crystal Guardians TCG merchandise, while supplies last!

Crystal Guardians Theme Deck Challenge (Non-Sanctioned - Players do not receive rating points for participation in the Theme Deck Challenge.)- to start shortly after 12:30.
Cost: $20 for a Theme Deck to use in the tourney, plus 4 prize packs recieved afterwards.
This special tourney will be separate from the main event and follows a much more casual format. Great for younger players, parents or those who may not be as familiar with deck building on their own, but would still like to participate. Each player will choose a Crystal Guardians Theme Deck to play in the tourney and keep afterwards.
And, like in the main event, so you won't be missing out on any of the fun, all participants in this Theme Deck Challenge will recieve their deck plus 4 prize packs, a special promo card, a Crystal Guardians PreRelease pin, and other exclusive EX Crystal Guardians TCG merchandise, while supplies last!
Additional Gifts for the top finishers:
1st - 3 packs
2nd - 2 packs
3rd - 1 pack
Modified Side Event (For those who have played in the main event)
Cost: Only $5
We will also have a regular Modified Sanctioned Tourney (no Crystal Guardians cards in decks) after the main event. Here's a way to win even MORE Crystal Guardians booster packs! Didn't win in the main event? Now's your chance to redeem yourself! Want to show your skills? Practicing for Worlds? Bring your best Modified deck to the table! Perfect chance to get in some more deck testing against some other great decks before Worlds!
Great (Crystal Guardians) prizes to be announced, based on number of players in the main event The more the merrier!
Also, everyone who preregisters with me no later than Monday, Aug 7 and stays for the entire event gets a bonus free pack! And remember, you'll also get a booster pack if you bring in a new player who hasn't yet been to one of our Premiere Events for Tomorrow Is Yesterday.
There will be plenty of Door Prizes given out as well! So come and join in the fun and be some of the first people around to get your hands on the new Crystal Guardians cards before anyone else!
