EXPECTATIONS

Judges at StarCityGames.com Open Series events are expected to prepare for each event by reviewing the Comprehensive Rules, Magic Tournament Rules, Infraction Procedure Guide, and Judging at Regular REL documents. These documents can be found at the Magic Judges Document Center. As representatives of StarCityGames.com and the Magic Judge Program, judges are expected to behave in a professional manner at all times. This includes arriving on time and in appropriate attire. 

Judges are expected to arrive no later than 9:00 am on Saturday and 8:45 am on Sunday and are expected to stay until the conclusion of the Swiss rounds. If you anticipate being unable to arrive by the call time or needing to leave before 8:00 pm, you must include that information in your application.

Judges at the StarCityGames.com Open Series will be provided a StarCityGames.com judge shirt, which is expected to be returned at the conclusion of the event. The Judge should arrive with black pants, black belt, and black, comfortable shoes. During breaks, or any other time that a judge is off duty, judges should remove, or cover, their Judge shirt.
