Jubilee tournament
20 years Chez Pikachu

Updated: 15 August 2020

20 years Chez Pikachu in Leiden
At 2 September 2000 we started at the former store Magic Friends with a Pokémon league that we baptised hez Pikachu soon after. Although the league was held at several locations in the past 20 years, we always continued our activities. Nowadays, our league is the oldes league since the beginning of Pokémon and that is a very good reason for a party. therefore we want to organze a special fun tournament, where everyone is a winner and can have fun to the max with our precious Trading card Game. To achieve this we did not only worked out a special fun format for the decks, but we have separate rules to enhance the fun as well. Additionally there are many prizes we will hand out, so eveyone will have a full bag of Pokémon stuff tobring home. It already starts at participating as all participants will receive a goodie-bag and every round there is a prize for each participant too.In shrt, a party you will not miss! Read below all information provided abot the format and the rules.
Due to all Corona pandemonia we have all of our plans under the Corona restrictions (that can alter any moment as we know now), because we want to present a safe and secure playing ground to all our players. We will welcome you at (one of) our old league location Huis van de buurt "Op Eigen Wieken", Valkenpad 5, 2317 AN Leiden, The Netherlands.

Game- and tournamentrules
About the gamerules we will not reveal too many information, but beware of the unexpected. For example, we could run one round with the "Baby-rule", which requires a dice roll to determine if you are allowed to attack or not. Perhaps are you the chosen one to play one round Video Gaming with one of our 3DS games with a selected team?.

The tournament will continue to feature Swiss-only play, so there will be no Top-cut with a maximum of 5 rounds, best-of-3. Dependant on the number of players in each division, the divisions will be kept separately if possible.
Participants are divided into 3 divisions, dependent on the year of birth. These divisions are:
Junior division: born in 2009 or later;
Senior division: born in 2005, 2006, 2007 or 2008
