  2. Join us for the Pokémon TCG: Sword & Shield Prerelease! Prerelease tournaments allow players to receive and play with cards from the upcoming expansion prior to its official release date. Whether you're a Pokémon aficionado or you've never played before, all are welcome!
    Registration takes place between 6pm and 6:30pm - hope to see you there!

    What do I receive?
    Each participant will receive a Build & Battle Box containing a 22-card Evolution pack, four 10-card booster packs, and an exclusive foil promo card. The Evolution pack provides a solid foundation which, along Energy cards provided by the Tournament Organizer, is used to construct a 40-card deck.

    For participating in the tournament, each player will receive a Sword & Shield booster pack. Players are able to receive additional booster packs based on how they place in the tournament.

    How does the tournament run?
    We will play Swiss best-of-one rounds, meaning players will be paired up against another player with a similar record. The number of rounds will vary depending on the number of participants, but there will likely be between 3 and 5 rounds. Each round lasts for 30 minutes, plus an additional three turns if a winner is not determined through normal gameplay after the 30 minutes.

    As 40-card decks will be used instead of the regular 60-card decks, only 4 prize cards will be used during the setup for each round, and only 4 prize cards will need to be taken to win a game.

    What should I bring?
    * Your Player ID number. If you don't have a Player ID, one will be given to you at the event.
    * Yourself! Make sure you arrive on time. If you are late for registration, you may not be able to play in the event, so make sure to register before 6:30pm!
    * Damage counters, Burn and Poison condition markers, a coin or other randomizer, and a GX marker. If you don't have some or all of these, ask event staff to borrow some from them or another player.

    How much does it cost?
    The Pokémon TCG: Sword & Shield Prerelease has a $25 entry fee for players in all age divisions, which covers your Build & Battle Box and prize pack(s).
