Shuffling As part of COVID-19 protocols, in order to reduce contact between players, please refrain from touching your opponent’s cards and deck. See below for more details. Also do note that judges may have to touch players’ cards to check their decks and sleeves.

During matches, cards must be shuffled by their owner. Once cards have been sufficiently shuffled, the opposing player may, within reason, ask for an additional shuffle such as written below.

Examples of additional shuffle methods:

① “Please shuffle until I say ‘stop’.”

② “Please cut your deck in three piles, then put them back in the order I’ll specify.”

③ “Please put a number of cards I’ll specify from the top of your deck to the bottom.” (Specify a number between 1 and 10)

Players who want to check their opponent’s discarded cards should politely ask their opponent to show them their discard pile. The opposing player should then show the contents of their discard pile in a clear manner.
During and between matches Participants are required to check all of the following rules:
Please follow instructions from staff members and sit at your designated table. Tables will be sufficiently spaced from each other.

Submitting match results
A staff member will come to retrieve the match slip.
Please remain seated after the match is over.
COVID-19 Policy Please bring a face mask.
Please have a face mask on when entering the venue and keep it on at all times. Otherwise, you will be refused entry into the venue.

Please refrain from entering the venue if any of the following applies to you:
  • People with a fever (37.2°C or higher)
  • People with symptoms such as a sore throat, headache, joint pain, breathing difficulties, coughing, diarrhea, conjunctivitis, loss of smell or taste.
  • We also ask that the elderly and those with chronic illnesses, who are more at risk of severe symptoms, exercise the utmost caution when considering attending the event.
  • People who have tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 14 days.
