I played a lot when I was younger (not really a kid since I was already a teenager when the cards came out), through the Team Rocket release, and I collected Japanese cards through both Gym sets, but I lost interest after that and wandered off. Started getting back into it again a couple years ago. I would love to play, but shyness makes it difficult, and the closest league is in Haarlem, and my partner doesn't really have any interest, so... I just collect for now. Do want to play at some point, though.
