So the official announcement is out and the date and venue is set. Who is planning to go?
I can’t wait. Just need to find a way to convince the wife to make it a week long family trip. Hotels look to be plentiful and in all price ranges for now but I wonder how that will change as it gets nearer. I may try and book something sooner rather than later.
Thursday to TuesdayMorrison-Clark Historic Inn
This hotel offers free cancellation until 1 day before arrival and I don’t have to actually pay for the room until I get there! Good place to book soon and you are free to change your mind after
There’s a special pop-up Pokemon Center store that sells exclusive World’s merchandise. There’s no other booths and selling is strongly discouraged on site (doesn’t mean it doesn’t happen). There are tables set up for trading but I found little of interest there last year. In general, there was not much in terms of graded cards since the vast majority of people there are players.
But there’s a ton to see. Displays, little setups. Last year they had a demo of Let’s Go Pikachu/Eevee (before it was released). There’s been a lot of rare things showing up in Pokemon Go if you still play. They will likely have some official signings (Arita was there last year) for the competitors (who will sell their signing spots). All that is fun but by far the best part is to meet all the other people from here who have such a strong passion for pokemon card collecting. Whether it’s just chilling around a table or grabbing some food (or drinks ) it was just a blast the last time I went.
Well, it’s looking like I may actually be home this year!!! The past 3 Years I’ve been working away from home all summer - not this year though! I’d love to go check it out and actually meet everyone from E4!
100% going! My family will be working and I will be spectating and trading! Worlds has always been the best trading event of the season by far for me over the past decade+ of attending, so I’d recommend bringing your good trade binders!
There will most likely be security watching for buying/selling, so either decline or leave the venue for those types of deals.
