Post Coverage: Pokemon TCG City Championships!


The Statesman Journal has an article on their local Pokemon TCG City Championships event:
A card game where players battle odd creatures with special powers held the attention of players ages 6 to 60 on Sunday in downtown Salem.

Pokémon players showed up at Borderlands Games on 546 High St. NE with their carefully assembled decks of cards — each deck packed with the player’s preference of Pokémon characters. Eight-year-old Marc Chenard of Corvallis likes the blue seahorse character named Horsea.

“I really love seahorses” he said. He also included Kingdra in his deck, another seahorse type character, and Nidoran, also known as the poison mouse.

His mother, Janet Chenard, 47, said the game has helped her youngest son learn reading and math. She also was playing in the tournament, while trying to catch up on work with her laptop between rounds.

“It’s more like chess with a bit of luck. It’s very strategic,” she said.

In this particular tournament, the entries were as follows:
Players 10 and younger: 13
Players 11 to 14 years old: 18
Players older than 14 years old to adult: 58
Total participants: 89
