    POKEMON LEAGUE

    Date: Sundays

    Time:12:00 PM – 4:00 PM

    Location: High Tide Games- California, MD

    Details: HTG is a small Hole in the wall, mom and pop type shops that sells games and offers a fun place to explore new games. Our family enjoys attending a event here and there and  adding strategy games to our board game collection.

    Pokémon League is a fun and accessible way for Pokémon fans to get together and have some fun! League events are open to all Pokémon TCG players regardless of experience level or skill. Using your own cards, you can play, trade, and even earn cool prizes! The best part is that you can do all this with other Pokémon players who love collecting and playing just as much as you do.

    At High Tide Games, we run our league as a “Stamp Card” league. When you come in to play, you’ll get a league card with rows to fill up. Each time you play a game during league, you’ll earn a single stamp. If you win the game, you’ll earn an additional stamp. Once you fill up the first row, you’ll earn a League Promo card. The second row earns you a booster pack, the third row another promo, and when you complete all 4 rows you’ll earn a Gym Badge! (*note: only one row can be filled each week) It’s free to play in our weekly League and we even have staff that can help you build a deck to get started. Show up as early as possible on Sunday so you can get the help you need and still have time to play games.

    SCHOOL OF ROCK

    Dates:  January 16, 2019 –  January 27, 2019

    Place: The National Theatre

    Run time: Approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes, including one intermission

    Details: SCHOOL OF ROCK is a New York Times Critics’ Pick and “An inspiring jolt of energy, joy and mad skillz!” (Entertainment Weekly). Based on the hit film, this hilarious new musical follows Dewey Finn, a wanna-be rock star posing as a substitute teacher who turns a class of straight-A students into a guitar-shredding, bass-slapping, mind-blowing rock band. This high-octane smash features 14 new songs fromAndrew Lloyd Webber, all the original songs from the movie and musical theater’s first-ever kids rock band playing their instruments live on stage. Chicago Tribune raves, “SCHOOL OF ROCK offers us a chance to be kids again, only with more talent than we ever had.”
