Event: Sealed deck Pokemon Tournament

When: 12/23/13 at 11am

Players playing Pokemon at D20 Games in Alameda
Kids & Adults at our sold out Cities Tournament

Cost: $40-includes Plasma Storm Elite Trainer Box

What:  Sealed Deck (Use the 7 packs included in the Elite Trainer box to build your best Pokemon Deck -40 card minimum deck size)   One hour to build decks,  3 rounds of play and prizes for winning rounds. (Get an extra prize pack for each round you win.)

Great for beginners and advanced players alike.  Limited to 34 players.

The Pokemon playing member of the family is super excited about this one. Continuing our tradition of not just collecting the cards, but playing with them every chance we get,   we’re going to be taking the new Pokemon Elite Trainer boxes and turning them into a sealed deck event. (Take the 7 booster packs that come in the box and create your best 40 card minimum deck with those cards. )

The Elite Trainer box is super cool and contains

  • 7 Plasma Storm booster packs
  • 40 Pokemon energy cards
  • 2 acrylic condition markers (burn/poison)
  • 6 damage counter dice
  • a competition legal coin-flip die
  • a player’s guide
  • a deck box.
  • Plus, a collector’s box to hold everything in

D20 specializes in being a friendly joint, and is particularly so for Pokemon events, so come and join us.  Advanced reservations are HIGHLY recomended, since this event has limited seating, and we had a lot of sad little faces when we sold out of our Pokemon Prerelease earlier in the month.

Pokemon Sealed Deck Tournament

Special Event on Saturday Aug 18th….a Sealed Deck Dragon’s Exalted!!

Buy Tickets Here
Format:  Sealed Deck

Open 6 packs of Dragons Exalted and make your best 40 card deck from (only) those cards plus basic energy.  You bring your own energy or it will be available at a reduced rate of 5 energy for $1 (energy can only be purchased this way for use in the deck being constructed.

Time: 11:30 (players arriving earlier may be able to open and build decks earlier at the discretion of the organizer.)

Cost: $30 includes the 6 packs for the event plus 2 packs to go into the prize pool.

Prizes and Rounds--Number of Rounds and Prize split to be determined by number of players.


A note on prizes and good play: PLEASE remember that we’re a fun joint with lots of different levels of players.  The most important thing is to get some cards and have fun with them and each other.  Win because you are playing your best game, and if you have an opponent that  is making errors they will feel bad about when they learn what they should have done later, help ’em out so you both play games you feel good about.  Be that “cool player I met”, not “that guy”.  😉

From the official rules…

1.2.1. Sealed Deck
In a Sealed Deck event, players receive booster packs from the Tournament Organizer at the  beginning of the event. Each player opens all of his or her booster packs at a signal from the  Tournament Organizer and constructs a 40-card deck using only those cards and any basic  Energy cards provided by the Tournament Organizer. Players have 30 minutes to construct their decks.
Players may not trade the cards from their booster packs with other players until the
tournament ends. The Tournament Organizer may require players to fill out deck lists, including the cards in their decks and any cards not being used. Once the first round of the tournament begins, players may not alter the contents of their decks. Booster packs used for a Sealed Deck tournament should come from the same set to preserve Evolution chains that may not exist outside of that set.

Pokemon League 11am Saturdays


Pokemon League: Saturday at 11am-1pm
Every Week–Pokemon league.  😉 This has been going SUPER well.  We have a great group of players showing up and lots of fun being had by players from young to full on adult.

Players of all experience levels (and ages) are invited to come down and find other like-minded players ready for a game, trading or a bit of both.  Players get a special check card and for every set of games they play and get signed off they earn their way to fun prizes like special cards and patches.  Winning and losing dosen’t matter, and in fact, when the more experienced players help the newer players learn how to play, they get extra checks for it, so they are egar to help out.  Entry fee is $5 and includes a booster pack.
