Pre-Releases and upcoming OPC changes

 First of all, we like to thank TPCi for still letting us order pre-releases for non-sanctioned tournaments because it was popping last week! With 18 players out of our 20 slot, it was pretty much a full house with awesome deck building and seeing crazy strategies.

After the tournament after everyone got their packs, we didn't see a lot of Gengars but we did see a lot of Mews being pulled. Can't wait to see what Fusion Strike will bring to the table once it goes legal next week in the rotation!

Depending on how time consuming being a Pokemon Professor is during the revival of Pokemon OP, some of the ideas that we might run for OPC Season 3 (If we end up doing it again) is having an open leaderboard and anyone placing top cut will pay a tournament fee to enter the OPC Cup. This will keep the format casually competitive as a player is not forced to pay early in the season to keep their points rather than play whenever they can and if  they get points they get points.

It's still in the books though

We're almost done with Season 2 but here is a cast of OPC #3 for Season 2! (I know it's late)

Odyssey First Win A Box!

 Odyssey Game's first Win a Box went off as expected with 16 players! Our store is normally not the store people will come to play Pokemon TCGs but we have enough of our regular players that we can always run events. We are waiting for Pokemon OP to start back up which they will in 2022 and we can start doing cool League things! Anyways a quick run down from the tournament on October 24. We have new players from the LA show up as well as our regular players. New faces = new decks and playstyles to play against which is great for the locals as they gear up to grind Championship Points for next worlds. First place would have been a box but it seemed that the Finalists: Fausto and Greg decided to split the box and go home a little early. Which is great, Pokemon is about having fun and making new friends. It's not stomping your enemies the whole time. Our next one is November 28 at Odyssey Games and we will have a special guest arriving! Fausto and Greg splitting first place

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
