Bringing together two lifelong Pokémon TCG fans that enjoy the game in different ways, Special Conditions offers a unique approach to discussing the hobby. Hosts Adam Tuttle and Ken Pescatore bring over 40 years of combined TCG experience to the show, and are more passionate about the TCG than ever! Follow along with our journey into collecting and competing in the TCG. Combining these elements of the hobby provides a fun and family friendly celebration of Pokémon TCG.
The Pokémon TCG can be enjoyed in many different ways. Adam and Ken discuss how collectors and competitors can find value in TCG. From amazing art, to a competitive edge or even how a card performs in the marketplace, show topics will fill in many of the blanks that you may have about the card community. No matter how you enjoy the TCG, we will help you celebrate what makes the TCG so special.
Each week we take a deep dive into a single card and discuss what makes it collectable and competitive. Adam breaks down where the card fits into the current meta, and how it can be used effectively in competition. Be sure to checkout our blog to see images and details of every card we feature!
While the Card of the Week looks at a single card, Art of the Week takes a look at a single Pokémon and examples of how it has been represented in the TCG over multiple expansions. We love card art, so it is a blast to paint a picture in audio form about our feelings on each card we feature! Check the blog for images and details!
While Adam is currently competing in the TCG and TCGO on a regular basis, Ken has been out of the competitive scene for years! Over the course of Special Conditions, Ken will be focusing on making a comeback to the competitive scene. With Adam providing coaching and explanations of the game, we encourage our listeners to get involved by trying out the cards, strategies, and decks that we discuss on the show! Even if competition isn't your thing, there are still ways to play the actual game in a casual and fun way!
