Come play in the Pokemon Sun & Moon *Team Up* Prerelease
Entry fee: $30
Registration starts at 12:00 noon, Tournament begins at 1:00 pm!
We will follow the prerelease with a League Challenge Tournament, $5 Entry.
Sunday, January 27, H&F 410 location (210.340.0074)
We invite all players to attend!
A prerelease tournament allows players to acquire and play with new cards from a not-yet-released set, sometimes up to two weeks prior to normal release.
Prerelease entry fee is $30.00.
Each player will receive a total of 7 booster packs and a special prerelease promo card.
The tournament starts with each player receiving 4 booster packs and an evolution kit – you are awarded the other 3 packs at the end of the tournament. Dropping from the tournament prematurely forfeits the 3bonus packs.
Each player then constructs a 40 card deck using cards from those booster packs. Basic energy cards are provided by the organizer but should be returned after the tournament ends. You can use your own basic energy cards if you wish but if they are not in perfect condition you will need to sleeve your deck so that they don’t stand out when shuffled with the newer cards. Special energy cards cannot be used unless they came from the booster packs you opened at the start of the event.
Players are not allowed to trade cards with other players until the end of the tournament. Although a decklist is not required, you are not allowed to change your deck once the tournament has started.
Normal tournament rules apply but because the decks only consist of 40 cards, players only layout 4 prize cards instead of the normal 6.
Each round is a single match game of 30 minutes. The total number of rounds depends upon the number of players in each age group. There is not normally a top cut.
Prerelease tournaments are treated as fun, more casual, events, and are less competitive than other tournaments. Match results do not affect a player’s premiere rating, however, playing in a prerelease tournament does award you one Play Point.
