Pokémon: Let’s Play! APR

Pokémon has always been one of the most popular games in our store because it does such a great job of appealing both to experienced players and brand new ones!

Format: Let’s Play is a unique format because it’s a bit of everything. There will be pick-up games, as well as introductory games for anyone that is new to the game – we will have an official Pokémon Professor on hand! We may even decide to run a quick tournament if there is interest. This event is for all ages.

EASTER HUNT: Since it’s Easter, we will be doing a special Pokéfig easter hunt – so you’ll be able to search for some special Pokémon mini-figs too! Gotta catch ’em all!

Entry Fee: FREE! If we decide to run a spur of the moment tourney there would be a possible entry fee for that, but it would be low and participation in it isn’t required.

Prizes: Even though it’s a free event we will always have some cool give-aways for participants. Be sure to register as a participant if you’d like a crack at some fun Pokémon door prizes!
