EVENT FLOW & TOURNAMENT RULES

1. DECK REGISTRATION

Deck registration will begin at 9:00am. Participants will be provided with a deck registration form to return to event staff before the first round commencing at 10:00am.

2. FIRST ROUND PAIRING

At 10:00am, pairings for the first round will be posted in multiple locations around the venue. Players will need to find their name on the list and sit at the table number indicated next to their name.

3. SWISS ROUNDS

During the Swiss rounds, no players will be eliminated. If a player would like to remove themselves from the competition, they’ll need to inform the event staff before the next round begins.

4. GAME TIME LIMIT OF 35 MINUTES

Each round will have a time limit of 35 minutes. If the match hasn’t concluded after 35 minutes have passed, participants will be allowed to play 3 additional turns after the current turn has ended.

5. LOSS FOR ANY DRAWS AFTER LIMIT REACHED

If the winner isn’t determined after the 3 additional turns, both players will receive a loss for that round.

6.  NO DRAWS

There will be no draws, players who both choose not to play a round will each receive a loss.

7. TOP 8 MOVE TO NEXT ROUND

After the Swiss rounds, the Top 8 players are recorded and will participate in un-timed, single elimination, best-of-3 matches.

9. DAMAGE WILL DECIDE ANY DRAWS

There will be no instance in which both contestants “lose” in single elimination. If players run out of time after 1 win : 1 loss, upon completing an additional 3 turns, whichever player has inflicted more damage will become the winner. If damage is still tied after 3 turns, the game will continue until a player inflicts one additional point of damage. The first player to deal one damage in that scenario is the winner.

10. ONE DECK TO BE USED IN ALL GAMES

Players will be using the same deck for all rounds on the day. Any changes made to a deck during the tournament are cause for immediate disqualification.

11. TOP PLAYER PRIZE

The Top 2 Players will be invited to the 2017 World Championships in Tokyo scheduled for November 2017 as the representative for Australia and New Zealand.
