First things first… the will be no league this Sunday (8/14) in Fincastle. However, there is something really cool taking place on the same day in Salem and the Fincastle Pokemon Gym will be right in the middle of it. “Geek Mob” (http://geekmobroanoke.com), an event that began as a comic book swap in 2011, has grown into a mini-convention of sorts. Sporting everything from vendors to live entertainment to Cosplay, the one day event has something for everyone. The “Mob” will be held at the Salem Civic Center on Sunday, 8/14/16, from 1pm to 9pm. Full detail are available on the link above. The Fincastle Gym’s Dark Moon Cards and Games will be there all day. Here’s a look at what we will have available.
Dark Moon Cards and Games will have a variety of cool Pokemon related items on hand. Those of you that are familiar our online store know that we specialize in pokemon card singles. We will have plenty of those on display, everything from powerful EX cards, to secret rare cards, to individual lots of energy cards and online code cards. No card is too small… we will have our stockpile of inventory with us, so if there is a card you need to complete a collection or a deck, ask and we will likely have it. We don’t stop at cards. We will have a variety of promo items, such as playmats, deck boxes and card sleeves from sanctioned Play!Pokemon events. We also have a selection of character deck boxes and sleeves, many of which came from Pokemon Center retail stores in Japan!
No item is too small… as we have many pokemon figures, plushes, pins, coins and buttons. Included in these items are league badges and pins from recent and past seasons, great finds for anyone who was unable to complete their collection in seasons past.
We offer a great selection of booster packs from all recent sets (at a better price then you’ll find at any major retailer). In addition to the packs, we will offer “learn to play” kits. Our kits include a “seed” deck, 4 booster packs, energy cards and dice. We plan to have a small play area where our team of Gym Leaders can help you learn to play. Speaking of Gym Leaders, 2016 World Championship competitors Georgia and Logan will both be on hand, now only a week away from their trip to San Francisco to take on the best players in the world. They’ll be available to teach, play and offer advice to anyone interested in the TCG. All of the Gym Leaders will be armed with their 3DS, so bring your best VG team and challenge us for fun!
The Fincastle Gym Leaders can’t wait for Sunday to get here. Come check out the event and be sure to stop by and see us. Until then, see you at the Mob!
