The Tri-City News: Game play in the cards for dad who is tournament organizer
Port Coquitlam will host the next provincial Pokemon tournament thanks to a local dad who is organizing the event.

Steve Ricker took on the job of regional tournament organizer to help the trading card game get a foothold in B.C. His kids like playing Pokemon, in which they battle one another using cards depicting creatures with special powers.

Ricker expects dozens of kids, and even some teens and adults, who have already won city competitions to turn out for the March 3 tournament at the Best Western PoCo Inn. They’ll be competing for merchandise, a trophy and a chance to go to Toronto for the Canadian championships. The world championship will be held this year in Kona, Hawaii.

Ricker said he likes the kid-friendly atmosphere of the Pokemon tournaments, where players compete in their age category not with older, more experienced players, and opponents knock out – not kill – other players.

“We don’t use any terminology to kill,” Ricker said.
