The new cards have been confusing me, and seem to be really cheap. I wish we could just stick to basic, jungle, and fossil. Maybe some Rocket. I would definitely go if I was more into it nowadays. I may have gone a good few years ago.

The reporter at the event for the official tcg site was really annoying.

Wow! Neat. An event where I live. It's not that far, but unfortunately I can't go. I can't even play the TCG!
