  1. Pre-release Blues

    I couldn't go to the Emerging Powers Prerelease. I was on a Family Vacation in Pennsylvania, and there were none near the house we rented.

    Ok, ok, it's ok. You can stop crying, I know it's sad and you feel for me, but it's ok.

    Anyway, missing the prerelease is not the killing blow. The killing blow, for me, is knowing I'm not going to taste the new Emerging Powers cards for another 6 days, AT LEAST.

    Wow pokemon online is a blast. Been playing it alot this week and the pokemon tcg should be online a week from now. Emerging powers packs will have codes for online pack and i'm going to a plethora of pre-releases. If you havent played Pokemon-Online or PokemonTCG, they are very well written pokemon simulators.

    Was playing around with ...
