Tickets: Online Only – http://secondcitygym.eventbrite.com

Your Regular or Premium Package ticket for the TCG State Championship is available exclusively online from http://secondcitygym.eventbrite.com.

If you have your ticket, you have a seat.

Premium Package – includes admission, Mega Scizor playmat, 3 packs, bottle of water and fixed table location throughout the event. Fixed location means you will have a special lettered table and your opponent will see your name as, for example: TABLE A – Jose Smythe. You stay at your table throughout the event, and your opponents come to you. Two fixed location opponents paired together will play at the highest ranked players table.

In the unlikely event tickets are available at the door, you will still need to purchase them from Eventbrite.

Deck List: Pre-print or Pre-write For Raffle

Use the Standard Format list provided by Pokemon or the PokeGym Decklist Builder to print your decklist in advance and you may be rewarded! Raffle prize winners will be randomly drawn from these deck lists. You can make a few neat changes to your pre-printed or pre-written list at the event if needed!

Deck lists will be available at the event but those will be marked ineligible for raffle prizes. You can even use notebook paper, but NO decklist that isn’t 8.5×11 paper will be accepted.

Official Info

This season’s TCG Regional Championships will feature the Expanded format. Unlike last season, both the Swiss rounds and the single-elimination finals will use the Expanded format.

Check the tournament listings for details.

Players in all age divisions will be charged an entry fee determined by the tournament organizer. See event listing for details.
