SixPrizes began as a collaborative effort between Jeremy Maron (2005 World Champion) and I (Adam Capriola) during the summer of 2009. The goal was to create one Pokémon TCG strategy article per day to be viewed and discussed by our readers. I had recognized at the time that it was difficult to find legitimate information on deck building and strategy without spending hours rummaging through message boards. Pojo was an awesome resource that put out reputable, spirited content daily in the early 2000s, but it had since deteriorated in terms of quality, so I wanted to bring back the previous ethos of that site.
Many changes have happened to SixPrizes along the way:
- Co-founder Jeremy went on his own way, Pablo Meza (3rd Worlds 2005) joined to replace him for a short while, and from then on I managed SixPrizes solo.
- Running SixPrizes by myself was difficult because I was just beginning to learn how to code at the time (so that I could improve the site), and I was also in my final year of college, so I had almost no time to write articles. Seeing this, the incredible community here stepped in and become the main contributors.
- In early 2017, burnt out from years of editing and managing 6P, contributors Christopher Schemanske and Alex Hill stepped in to manage the day-to-day operations. Christopher had been working with me on editing articles since early 2014 and writing for 6P since the spring of 2015. Alex had been writing off and on for the site for most of its history. I stuck around part-time to serve as an advisor and provide technical support for Alex and Christopher.
- In September 2018, Alex stepped down from operations, and Christopher’s tenure came to a close in January 2019.
- Currently, I am managing SixPrizes solo again.
I hope you enjoy your stay at 6P and be sure to let me know if you have any suggestions. I am always trying to improve the site.
Thanks and best,
Adam Capriola (webmaster of SixPrizes)
