Invitation to Catastrophe
Pokemon Zeo August 6, 2003
PokemonZeo.com to host a Pokemon
Collectible Card Game (CCG) event - completely organized, run, and
staffed by players - as a final farewell to Wizards of the Coast's
retainment of the Pokemon CCG license.
YONKERS -- August 11, 2003 - Pokemon Zeo, one of the net's foremost
Pokemon communities, runs their first major event. Featuring multiple
age-bracketed main events, and many side events, the event will
hopefully be a memorable one.
Players will have the opportunity to participate in DCI-sanctioned
tournament play in Modified format, several Limited formats, as well
as ongoing Battlezone League play. Prizes will be awarded to
on performance, and will include sealed Pokemon packs, theme decks,
promo cards, foil energy, Pokemon merchandise, gaming gear, and other
surprises. Also, each paid registration to the DCI-sanctioned
tournament activities include an exclusive Pokemon Zeo dogtag - a
different tag for each event, while supplies last!
Modified Constructed Main Events
Players bring a 60-card deck in the Modified format (Modified Deck
Rules) and will play a number of swiss-paired rounds dependant upon
the number of participants, before a final cut is made. Events are
age categories of 10 and under, 11-14, and 15 plus.
Booster Draft Side Events
Each player will receive 5 booster packs to draft then construct a
40-card deck for play use. Basic Energy Cards will be provided for
deck construction. These events are not time-scheduled, and pods of
begin at any time in the day when eight players are available and
registered, time and supply of product permitting.
Sealed Deck Side Events
Players will receive 1 randomly selected theme deck and 2 booster
packs to construct a 40-card deck for play use. Players will then
play a number of swiss rounds based upon the number of participants.
Basic Energy Cards will be provided for deck construction.
Got a deck? Just want a casual format? Compete in Battlezone format
play in Final BattleZone for points, prizes and fun. Just like
BattleZone, players earn a point for each game played and another
point for each game won. Along the way of earning points, players can
pick up cool promotional cards, badges and more.
