    Yes, that's right... it's that time again!
    This means join us at TIY on Sat May 10th at 2pm for our next exciting Prerelease Event!

    *Edit* Our morning one is full,
    so if you haven't contacted me yet to get on the list, be sure to come to the 2pm one.

    Due to increased rates at the Women's Club, we'll be holding our Prerelease right at Tomorrow Is Yesterday!
    What? :eek: It's not big enough you say? Don't worry! :thumb: To accommodate our usual number of players comfortably, we'll hold it at 2 separate times. Our regular local players will come to an earlier event leaving plenty of room for all other players from 2pm-6pm.
    This will actually be much better for everyone because now we'll have plenty of soda, candy, sleeves, booster packs, dice, and other great items right there on hand at the store for you! (and for those of you familiar with when we played at the Women's Club... no more annoying table covers! :biggrin:)

    And yes, we will still have a Theme Deck Challenge in the afternoon, but most likely will not be able to have a Side Event after this one. If we have time and are able to, it would follow the 2nd event in the afternoon.

    So you know, we can easily accommodate 80+ players, but Preregistration is still strongly suggested. So send me So C'mon! Tell your friends to hop in the car and come on over! Get your Mom or Dad to join you and learn how to play! This is the perfect opportunity! And remember, for every new player you bring who hasn't been to one of our events before, you'll get a free booster pack at the end!

    We ALWAYS have a blast at our events! Come see what all the fun's about!an email, a PM here, or call TIY at 815-633-0330. I'll have all the details up at our website,, so be sure to check there often to find out the latest.

    And as usual, I'll have lots of door prizes, cookies, and fun for everyone! It's going to be a GREAT event and we really look forward to seeing all of you soon!

    Here are some more details for the event!

    How much does it cost? $25 to enter.

    Entry fee includes over $35 worth of products you use to play in the event and then keep afterwards.


    As usual, we will be having two different ways to play in the Prerelease, both going on at the same time:
    the Sanctioned Main Event, OR the Theme Deck Challenge.
    Either one you choose, everyone will get a Cool Special Surprise gift and a special Promo card!
    Just think... a day full of fun with your Pokemon friends, a chance to get and play with the new cards before anyone else gets them, A Special Surprize gift, and a special Promo Card...
    all for only $25!! Such a deal!

    Want to get some extra booster packs? Bring in your friends, neighbors, parents... for every new person you bring in to play, in either the Main Event or the Theme Deck Challenge, I'll give you a bonus pack! Let's face it, Pokemon is a GREAT game, we ALL love it, and it's MORE fun the more people who play! This is going to be a VERY exciting new set and this is the very first day it's available too! You won't want to miss it!!

    Also keep in mind the spirit of a Prerelease is non-competitive, with no real pressure to win, which is why everyone will receive prize packs at the end. The main objective is to have fun and check out all the new cards! And don't forget, the New Rules that came out with the Release of Diamond & Pearl are in effect, so be sure to check it out if you aren't familiar with the new changes.

    But don't worry, we'll have LOTS of random pack giveaways throughout the day! I also have some really cool door prizes to give out... besides packs and sleeves and such, a free Pass to our next Prerelease worth $25, as well as some other great door prizes! You can be sure we'll have a good time! Oh and of course, I'll bake plenty of cookies for everyone! We'll also have Soda, candy, and chips on sale there too, in case you get hungry, and plenty of other cool items for sale at TIY.

    Email me, PM me, or call TIY (815-633-0330) to preregister for this exciting, fun event!


    Majestic Dawn Prerelease
    - Main Event -

    Cost: $25 for 6 boosters to build the deck that you'll play in the tournament, plus a special Promo Card and a cool surprise item for everyone, while supplies last! I can't tell you what it is until the start of the event, but it's something that everyone will LOVE! More than $35 worth of products for only a $25 entrance fee! Nice!

    Main event - at 2:00 - Each player will receive 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 from the 6 packs) to play in the tourney and write down their decklist, deciding how many energies they will want to include in their decks. Basic energies are provided on loan, and for this Prerelease we will also have special Proxie Basic Dark and Basic Metal Energies. Everyone will have 30 minutes to build their decks using the cards from the packs they received.
    At 2:30 the tourney will begin with 20 minute rounds and play for 4 prizes. The number of rounds we will have will depend on the total number of players there, but probably 4 or 5 rounds.

    Prizes: ALL participants will receive 2 more Majestic Dawn prize packs at the end of the tourney (making a total of 8 packs, plus the surprise gift and the Promo card)

    Or if you prefer, you can do the

    Majestic Dawn Prerelease
    - Theme Deck Challenge -

    Cost: $25 for a Theme Deck (complete with new rulebook, themed coin, damage counters and playmat) to keep and use to compete against others in the Theme Deck Challenge, plus a special Promo Card and a cool surprise item for everyone, while supplies last!

    This special tourney will be separate from the main event but at the same time, 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. If you don't know how to play, we can teach you! Each player will choose one of 2 different Majestic Dawns Theme Decks to use to battle others who also choose the Theme Deck Challenge, and the nice thing about playing the Theme Deck Challenge is that each Theme Deck also comes with one of the new Rulebooks and playmats, a special coin, and your own damage counters.

    And all participants in this Theme Deck Challenge will ALSO receive 4 more Majestic Dawn prize packs at the end of their tourney (making a total of: the Deck, 4 boosters, plus the secret item and Promo card).

    So C'mon! Tell your friends to hop in the car and come on over! Get your Mom or Dad to join you and learn how to play! This is the perfect opportunity! And remember, for every new player you bring who hasn't been to one of our events before, you'll get a free booster pack at the end!

    We ALWAYS have a blast at our events! Come see what all the fun's about!

    Hey Camille - wasn't the last Pre-release 'Great'? This one is going to be 'Majestic'! ^^

    Seriously though, it is about a week and a half away. Who all is going to be there?

    I'll have to see. If I come, I'll probably be playing. I have to make sure that my family obligations are taken care of before I come over. They probably will be, but you never know. I'll be in the Chicago area for the weekend, so 1.5 hrs for a Pre isn't SO bad.

    We'll see. I may be attending a SSBB event at my local library (since I don't get to cover video game events very often).

    Oh that sounds like fun too! Well I'm pretty excited about it. Love the Prereleases! I've heard from quite a few of the out-of-towners already. Should be a great time! Can't wait!

    I'm about 90% there right now. Just gotta wait for my parents to give me the absolute go-ahead. Need Judges?

    Regrettably, I will not be able to come-I will be attending the aformentioned Brawl event in Madison.

    Awww, sorry to hear that yoshi! But gotta admit that SSBB event sounds fun! Yes I'm getting pretty excited about the tourney!! It's going to be great! Be sure to pm me or email me if you're coming and want to get on the list.

    Now remember everyone, it will be right at TIY, not at the Women's Club (but I'll still make cookies for you all :biggrin:)
    and don't forget, I'll be giving away a Free Pre Pass to our next Prerelease too, in addition to some other door prizes as well.

    i'll be there you never know it might be fun by the way do you know who this is PokeMama

    Yep I do! :wink: Yes it's going to be a lot of fun, just a few more days!! :thumb:

    If you haven't already contacted me about getting on the list, the morning one is full, as I expected, so be sure to come at 2:00 for the afternoon one. Still a good idea to let me know if you plan on coming. As I was adding some more people who contacted me to the afternoon list, I noticed that we've got at least 5 Poke-families in the bunch! That's really great to see!

    I do also have the Theme Deck Challenge available. So far most want to go for the Main event, but just let me know if you plan on playing in the TDC.

    Having this right at TIY will work out just fine as both events will allow us to have as many as we did in the Women's Club... and I would think you guys would like it since now there will be 2 chances to win a Free Pre Pass to our next Prerelease... one drawn during each tourney! :biggrin:

    I just got confirmation, I'm there from 9am until whenever you decide to end. That'll probably mean $50 on my part, but I haven't really played in anything for about 6 months, so it's kool with me. If I'm not in the first main, then I'll be in the first TDC and the second Main. I just wanna play, a lot, and often.
