A Weekend on the World Stage

A SixPrizes Site Update and Christopher’s 2018 World Championship Recap
Another World Championship has come to a close, and with it, any number of storylines we’ve been chasing as a community for the last year have closed with it. We have another set of champions, another format that will probably one day be old-deck lore, and another season to look to—this time, headed back to […]

The Chase Begins

A SixPrizes Site Update on NAIC Article Marathon, Coupon Promotion, and More
June—for the last many years, host to the run-up to Pokémon’s biggest event of the year: the North American International Championships (or, formerly, US Nationals).

Summarizing and Analyzing the November 2017 Updates to the Pokémon TCG Rules Documents
Seemingly, there’s never a dull moment in Pokémon. Even as we set out on a two weekend stretch in which there are almost no events yielding CP across the world (League Challenges, worth it for a few, aside), Pokémon’s managed to give us some interesting stuff to consider. Today, we saw an update to the […]

It’s become something of a tradition in the Pokémon community to do fantasy drafts heading into the event formerly known as US Nationals. For the past few years, we at 6P have partaken in the craze.

6P S/P/T Dice Promotion

News
You may have heard me mention getting 6P dice manufactured and sold on the site at some point, and in January I actually did get a batch produced for a promotion I wanted to run during Regionals, but the timing didn’t work out and I’ve been sitting on the dice ever since. However, with States/Provincials/Territories […]
