Pokemon TCG KC Regionals 2016 Recap...




This weekend saw me attending my 1st Pokemon TCG event in over a year, and my 2nd Pokemon TCG event ever.  Going into it, I really had no idea what to expect, as you can tell, I don't have a lot of experience with "competitive Pokemon" though I do have over 230 games of the TCG under my belt, and countless more in the online version.  Once settling on a deck, (Vileplume/Vespiquen) I begin playing, testing, and prepping like crazy, both with physical cards and online as well.  Here's the deck I ended up bringing to Regionals:

Pokemon TCG Regionals 2016 - Overland Park, KS



Que up the battle music!

About sums it up...
At the urging of my 6 yr old daughter, I've decided to enter into this weekend's Pokemon TCG Regionals, here in Overland Park, KS.  My ONLY other Pokemon TCG experience is a single League Challenge from a year ago, so needless to say, I'm in over my head!  Honestly, I'm not a big fan of the expanded format as a whole, since I've only just recently returned after a year long hiatus, and even then I don't think I own anything older than from the XY Flashfire set.

That said, I *think* I've decided on a deck to play, and have been playing with it as much as possible, even though they are just general games as I have no idea what the expanded meta will look like, nor do I have the cards to actually build and test expanded decks.  Honestly, if I can win a single match, I'll be happy!
This should make me easy to spot!

The plan is to as much tweeting and posting at the actual regionals as I can, so if you have twitter, or are interested in hearing my results as I go, please check out the link on the right side of blog or CLICK HERE.  I also plan to post a full decklist, and a bit of a write-up on the whole event afterwards.

If you are interested in the event, details for it can be found HERE on the KC Pokemon FB page.  If by some miracle you are reading this, and attending, look for the tattooed guy with the Koffing Backpack, and say HI!

Wish me luck!

This Geek's 2 Weeks...

WIP shot of the Marines from the AVP Game...



Modeling/Hobby:
- Worked on the AVP Marines, and did a bit of work on bases for the Preds.  The pace has slowed for working on them, and now that my daughter is out of school for the summer, I'm losing a bit of hobby time...


Card/Board Games:
- Picked up the Darkrai Mythical Box for myself, and the latest Zygarde starter deck for my daughter.  I also picked her up the mega Blaziken box for her so she would have her own Playmat, and a couple other packs and singles.  Looks like I/we may be diving back into the Pokemon TCG.

- Played a few games of the Pokemon TCG with my daughter.  We (or I should say, I) have done a bit of deck tweaking too...

- I decided to unload a bunch of my extra board games and such...

- Made it to the Pokemon league, and Played several games.  I've also decided to enter in the upcoming Pokemon TCG Regionals.
 
Managed to sell most of these...


Video Games:
- Played some more of the The Division on Xbox.  Still just doing the daily, hard missions, and it's getting pretty boring to be honest.  I also played a bit of the Wolf Among Us, and Alien: Isolation.  I even played a bit of Halo5, though I'm still comically terrible at the game... I wish I could fix it! =(

- Played more Pokemon shuffle on my phone...

- Played some PTCGO, I started out mostly just the daily stuff for coins, but lately I've been playing some real games...

- Played some Pokemon ORAS, Super Mystery Dungeon, and Smash Brothers on the DS...
 


Other:
- I also watched a bit of the streams from the German Pokemon Nationals, and some from a recent regionals as well...
 
 
Until Next time,

This Geek's Week...


The Alien Stalkers are DONE!
Modeling/Hobby:
- Worked more on painting my AVP stuff.  It was a bit of struggle, but eventually I figured out a scheme for painting the bases that I was happy with.  So far, I've managed to get the alien stalkers done.  I've now started working on the Marines next...


Card/Board Games:
- Got to play 2 games of Weiss Schwarz vs a friend on Tabletop Day!  My first actual games!  I've also decided to start up a Facebook group to try and find local players...

- Tinkered around with my SAO Weiss Schwarz deck a bit.  I also went and picked up an SAO II trial deck, and a couple of booster packs.  I also picked up another Persona TD, and built a new deck around a few of the cards.

- Played some solo, test games of Weiss Schwarz of SAO vs SAO II
 

Video games:
- Played some more of The Division on Xbox, and I've gotten the Tenebrae DMR.

- Played some Pokemon Omega Ruby on the DS.

- Played some Pokemon Shuffle on my phone.


Books/Comics:
- I'm still having a hard time getting into the 30k novel: "Betrayer".  It is entertaining, but for some odd reason, it's a book I can easily put down.  I think maybe I've just not been in a Sci-fi mood lately.  I was debating on reading a Tom Clancy novel, but instead picked up "The Templar Conspiracy" by Paul Christopher on a bit of a whim...
Until Next Time,
