PE2K was at the EX Dragon Frontiers Prerelease at the Game Kastle in Santa Clara, California. The prerelease tournament is one of many that are going on across the US and in other countries. At this particular location I was at, the place was packed with over 82 players participating in the event. 27 players were in the Masters Division (Born in 1991 or earlier), 31 players in the Senior Division (Born in 1992, 1993, 1994 or 1995), and 24 players in the Junior Divison (Born in 1996 or later).

 

Picture 1: Here we are, the Game Kastle in Santa Clara, California. Picture 2 and Picture 3: The main tournament area is actually at an apartment building that was next to the Game Kastle store (there were some tables at the actual Game Kastle store as well since the main tournament area didn't have enough room).

 

Picture 1, Picture 2, and Picture 3: Each player are given six EX Dragon Frontiers booster packs to create a 40 card deck. Energy cards were made available to complete the decks.

 

Picture 1, Picture 2, and Picture 3: Here's the really fun part, opening up booster packs! With a total of 82 players, that means 492 booster packs were opened, or 4,428 number of cards!

 

Picture 1, Picture 2, and Picture 3: There's no easy way to do it, just have to spread the cards all over the table to organize them and create a deck out of it.
