Scarlet & Violet – Prerelease Event
Pokémon TCG Prerelease tournaments allow players to receive and play with cards from upcoming expansions up to two weeks before the set’s official release date!
Saturday, 25th March 2023
Be the first to play with new Pokémon TCG cards in Pokémon TCG Prerelease tournaments.
You’ll receive a Prerelease box that includes all the cards you need to play in the event.
- Open for all players to enter
- Opportunity to see cards before the official release date
- Relaxed environment ideal for casual players
Each Build & Battle Box includes a 40-card ready-to-play deck featuring key cards from current and prior sets and features one of four unique foil promo cards. It also contains four Pokémon TCG: Scarlet & Violet booster packs and a deck-building tip sheet. Players are allowed to modify the deck using the cards found in the booster packs.
Although they retain an element of tournament structure, prerelease events are designed to be casual events, suitable for any standard (or age) of player.
Pokémon TCG: Scarlet & Violet Build & Battle Kit:
- 1 40-card ready-to-play deck
- 4 Scarlet & Violet booster packs
- 1 deck-building tip sheet
Each event lasts for about 3 hours (deck building, and 3+ rounds of approximately 30 minutes each). Entry is expected to be £25 per player*, per event.
* Note: that a general price increase across Pokémon TCG products is anticipated with the release of Pokémon TCG: Scarlet & Violet, but it is not yet clear how that will effect the individual products in the UK.

FOOD & DRINK
Clifton Road Games do not provide or sell food and/or drinks on the premises, but customers are welcome to bring their own.
Newtown Stores is just up the road (on your left as you exit the shop), The Clifton Inn has an in-house bakery, as well as their regular pub menu, and is also just up the road (on the right as you exit). Exe Coffee Roasters are across the Triangle Car Park (opposite the Pyramids Leisure Centre).
We generally advise that gamers take specific breaks for food and drinks, rather than snacking throughout. It’s safer for the games components.
Customer toilets are provided in-store. Note that these are wheelchair accessible but not fully equiped as disabled facilities (ie. they don’t have all of the hand rails, etc).
