Entering the Digital World

The Digimon Card Game is blowing up as of January 2021. Well it was blowing up way before that and thanks to the TCG community in LA (as well as around the world) there has been a slew of tournaments as well as great organized play through Bandai themselves. Tons of online tournaments has risen with such tournaments like the past Evo Cup, the current Online Regionals, and the upcoming DC-1 Grand Prix. Their promos are amazing as well always awarding players with a little bit of something even if they lose. Odyssey Games, where we also play Pokemon has been home to the tSn Digimon scene where we play and practice with fellow team members including Matthew (Who has won 3 local tournaments in a row) and other competitive locals. Online Regionals was a blast even though we lost heavily we strive to play our best regardless of what tournament we are in. Among the sponsored tSn players for Digimon, Tolephi of Arkansas will be competing in his first Online Regionals at the end of the month. H

OPC Event #5

  Our biggest event with the largest playerbase to date! With 22 players we watched loads of different decks compete for double circuit points as well as their shot to be on our Youtube commentary for the set. LA Pokemon is blowing up and I like to thanks everyone who comes out to play and support our store at Odyssey Games. Evolving Skies pre-release is around the corner and I'm hoping that would be our legit largest tournament to date. Pokemon OP should be lifting up soon (fingers cross) so we can start doing League stuff and getting cool Pokemon promos to our store for our regular players (and welcoming new players!) Shoutouts to Ryan for winning his first event especially since he top cut just a few weeks ago! He will be moving soon and he was an OG from Game Empire before they changed to Odyssey Games. He will be missed by our store but we're lucky to have him come back and bring along old friends. 22 for last week and 26 total unique players! Anyways come watch our commen

Perfection (Almost) A Belated Look and Tournament Recap of OPC # 1

  Greggsnarl  |  July 20, 2021 Hey everyone! Welcome back to another article. Today we’re going three weeks back in time to the inaugural week of the Odyssey Pokemon Circuit and discussing my tournament run. Deck List and Strategy For this tournament, I ran a Mewtwo & Mew-GX/Welder build. It is essentially the same list Tomoki Ito ran for his first place finish in the Champions League back in March 2021. This deck is a little complicated and cumbersome to run at times but has an answer to pretty much everything in the format. Ideally, with this deck you want to setup Mewtwo & Mew-GX while discarding the other GX pokemon and use Welder to accelerate energy.    Pokémon (17) Trainer (31) Energy (12) 3 Mewtwo & Mew-GX 1 Mega Lopunny & Jigglypuff-GX 1 Reshiram & Charizard-GX 1 Gengar & Mimikyu-GX 1 Naganadel-GX 1 Vileplume-GX 1 Charizard-GX 1 Galarian Zapdos V 3 Dedenne-GX 1 Crobat V 1 Eldegoss V 1 Jirachi-GX 1 Marshadow UNB 4 Welder 4 Professor’s Research 3 Boss’s O

OPC Event #3 - 14 Player Showdown!

  Our 3rd Event for OPC is our biggest yet with newer players joining the circuit and returning players for our casual as well. We have seen a lot of decks come play today especially a family who all ran Inteleon VMAX and competed together like a Gym. Our usual players would then play other meta decks ranging from Rapid Strike Urshifu to some of the craziest decks such as Blissy. A "Royal Roader" first time player, Chi, who registered for the circuit came clutch with first place beating out favorite, Jake (Who also went 4-1) Jake dominated the early rounds with this deck Our 5 round swiss was crazy with a 2 way tie breaker for 4th place but we all know Top 3 is where you want to be. Circuit points have been updated and we are glad to be able to follow and play with such good Pokemon players. I'm not very good at writing game analysis so I'm just reporting how awesome our Sundays are;  Stay tune for more stuff! We also started Digimon but that can be for another day; T

Let’s talk about my first Digimon tournament.

A Digimon Card Game article by Sandman! I joined the Digimon craze fairly recently, but that was because of the struggle to find a place that sells them and for a price that won’t break the bank. I also have never joined a tcg tournament or played anyone in any card game besides friends. This did make me a bit nervous when the tournament was starting. What types of players would I go up against? Would I even be able to put up a fight with my hastily strewn together deck? I was also still not 100% on the rules so this was still a learning experience for me.  I was using a red-yellow deck for all my duels(? fights?) with Shine Greymon as the star and a bunch of random cards in the deck that fit the color scheme. I didn’t have a theme like the other decks, but I still wanted to see how I would hold up.  1st Round The 1st round I was the most nervous because this was my big debut into the Digimon world. I played against a dude named Sauna who was quite friendly and helped make for a relaxe

OPC #2: Pokemon Sundays with 12 people signed up!

  Top 4: Jake, Ryan, Kai, and Johann Our biggest Sunday tournament yet with 12 players featuring a couple of players from the previous store joined the fray. We had more kids joined so we had a "proxy" friendly tournament and we also ran out of booster packs so we played for store credit. We saw all sorts of decks ranging from Eternatus to Shadow Rider to the good ol Mad Party. It was a fun time today. 4 round swiss to a 3 way tie breaker. We got big plans for the Odyssey Circuit so I'm hoping more people join so we can have more prizes. Custom playmats and trophies will be on their way and Pokemon OP should be around in a couple months to let us know if they are going to start back up. We need them promos! Jake's deck that went 4-0; Shadow Rider Jake came out pretty strong again today. Going 4-0 while last week going 3-1; Statistically showing that he's a strong player that every one should be afraid of with a 7-1 record in the last 2 tournaments. RNG is on Jake&
