adam wrote an article (controversial)
Sent Saturday, May 18, 2013
The Play Point requirement for Nationals has been a topic festering
in the back of my mind for a long while, and after a recent incident
where two well-known players were suspended in what appears to be
an attempt to gain Play Points to earn participation eligibility, I
was sent over the edge and HAD to write about it:
My thoughts are controversial, but I think I make a fairly strong
case for the Play Point requirement being bad.
It's a fairly […]

Traffic on PkmnCards.com has been blowing up the past few days and
I'm kind of inspired to work on it more... are there any missing
features that you'd like to see?
I haven't brainstormed too much yet, but I was thinking maybe the
ability to save your collection might be neat. I kind of doubt
anyone would ACTUALLY take advantage of that though.
I like trying to optimize the site so it loads fast, and I know the
Disqus comments are kind of terrible for load times. I've […]
playmat design revealed

This is just the outline by the way, the final product WILL be in
The theme we decided to go with is a Ho-Oh wings/tattoo style
design. My main goal for the project is to make it look cool - I'm
not really that concerned with blatantly advertising 6P, I'm more
in the mindset where I want the playmat look neat and that's the

I'm BACK after skipping out on last week's newsletter - I didn't
feel there was anything worthwhile to share, so I decided to give
you a breather.
The articles from last week were mostly based on theory (i.e.
theorymon) and I prefer to publicize only concrete information
rather than hype what may or may not hold true, so you didn't miss
out on too much besides some Plasma Freeze speculation and early
Jay and Andrew who wrote were in kind of weird positions […]

As luck would have it, I found these sitting on my front doorstep
right before I was going to type out this newsletter:
Which color do you like the best? I got samples made so you guys
could let me know which you like the most, and then whichever seems
to be the most popular I'll get printed in bulk to give away for
free at US Nationals and Worlds.
(The green/gold ones are going to stay exclusive as a prize for
those who beat an Underground writer […]
i started drinking again...

For the first time in many moons, I've decided to experiment with
(What did you think I was talking about??)
I avoided it like the plague for years, but I've heard both good
and bad things about it, so I'm giving it a shot again.
So far I don't really notice too much of a difference in how I
feel. I drank it way too late at night earlier this week and had
some trouble falling asleep, but that's about it.
But what has given me a buzz this week has been a few of our […]
oh my, he's on fire!

Anyone else see the Michigan/Kansas game tonight? Crazyyyy. That's
why I love the NCAA tournament.
(My bracket was demolished after last weekend, by the way. I think
I'm done with brackets... I never win anything and it makes me
appreciate the games less when my teams go down.)
Anyway, another week, another pair of Underground articles. My life
has been feeling kind of redundant lately, and I hope these
newsletters are still somewhat interesting.
I need to think of something […]

Today turned out to be an extremely long day for me somehow, even
though I didn't have that much to get done.
I think the issue was that I slept terribly because our dog was
outside barking all night waking me up but I didn't feel like
getting out of bed to let it in, so I'd wake up for 15 minutes,
fall back asleep, then wake up from the Pomeranian yipping again 30
minutes later, etc...
THEN my brother's alarm clock started going off and that woke me
and overall it was a […]
i lost 4 dice :(
Sent Thursday, March 14, 2013
How did States go for you last week? I went 4-3 at PA with a
borrowed RayEels deck (thanks espy87!) and played a few challenge
matches afterward, losing once more, totaling 4 losses and 4
elusive 6P dice given away.
Not too many have been relinquished between me and the other
writers (Colin went undefeated and Dylan was undefeated through
Swiss), so this weekend should be another prime opportunity to win
one if you are fortunate enough.
Again, full details about the promotion can […]

States this weekend! I'll be at PA on Saturday, and you'll have a
chance to win an exclusive 6P dice from me or one of our

maybe Spring Regionals if I'm on top of things), so don't fret if
you miss out this time around.
I most likely will never be selling dice directly on the website
because shipping is such a pain. I want to avoid post offices at
all costs, […]
