A Pokémon trading card game tournament will again be held in front of Bargain Books in the Corkwood Square Mall, Kariega, and youngsters are invited to show their gaming skills and they can even swop Pokémon characters and cards.
It will be held today and Wednesday, 21 December between 12:30 and 17:00. All interested in participating should register at Bargain Books.
Pokémon currently is a big hit amongst children. Tables will be put out where the tournament will be held and participants can pitch, register, and play. There will be two different age categories to participate in.
According to Juan van Rooyen, manager of Bargain Books at Corkwood Square Mall, the tournament will be held in a knock-out format.
“There will be very nice prizes like a Pokémon collectors’ box to the value of R1 000 for the overall winner. There also are various other prizes up for grabs,” said Van Rooyen.
Regarding the Pokémon swop, genuine cards will be swopped for genuine cards only. For more information call Bargain Books in Corkwood Square Mall at 041 180 4390.
