Local Pokemon master heads to national championship
STREAMWOOD – Ben Moskow is in training to become a Pokemon playing card game master.
The Pokemon trading card game is played between two competitors. Each player has his own deck of cards filled with creatures with attacks and cards that strengthen these creatures, or Pokemon, and weaken those of the player’s opponent. At the end of the game, whoever has the highest amount of points, gained through winning attacks, wins the game.
After becoming the Pokemon Spring Regional Champion, Moskow is traveling to Indianapolis this weekend to compete in the 2013 Pokemon U.S. National Championship. According to a news release from the Pokemon Company International, this competition is the largest of the season, with more than 2,000 players, supporters and fans expected to attend.
