Judges will be on standby during the scheduled times for tournament play. They will be hopping into Discord channels at random to view games.

Judges will go through all submitted deck lists upon submission, and if a deck list is not valid, the participant will be informed to make changes prior to the start of the tournament.



1. All matches will follow the existing rules – Best of 3 format, with a total time of 50 minutes. Should participants require more time due to technical difficulties, we will leave it to their own discretion to have their match completed and reported by the deadline.

2. All participants are expected to play fair. Cheating in any form will not be tolerated. Any participant caught to be cheating will immediately be revoked from the tournament.

3. If a participant suspects his/her opponent is slow playing, rulings that require clarifications, or if there are any major discrepancies, he/she should contact a judge to assist. Any ruling made by a judge is final.

4. All participants are required to submit their deck list with their registration. Failure to do so will render your registration void. Should a participant note something is invalid with his/her opponent’s deck, please raise the issue up with a judge. Such matters will be taken very seriously and the judge will rule accordingly.

5. Each participant is required to have his entire deck, scrap pile, KO’ed pile and play area visible in the webcam. Each participant’s hand should be placed down visibly when not being looked at.

6. Clear and accurate ways of tracking damage and hit points must be used. Reflective counters that can’t be seen due to light reflection will not be allowed in the tournament if your opponent is unable to see the numbers clearly.

7. Technical issues will likely arise with such a scale tournament spanning across various countries. We expect players to be able to troubleshoot their own issues. Players will be left to their own discretion to add time back to the clock, but feel free to contact a judge if required.

8. Proxies will not be allowed for this event. All participants are expected to have the physical cards available.

9. We understand that not everyone has English as their first language. It is fully acceptable should a participant not pronounce a card name accurately if naming a card for Counterespionage, as long as the participant is able to clearly explain what the card does as well. Naming a completely different card would not be acceptable.
