When time is called at the end of a round, the current turn of each game that’s still in
progress is completed. If a winner is not determined by the end of that turn, play will
continue for an additional three turns, starting the count with the opponent’s turn.
After the additional three turns, play will stop, and the Match winner will be
determined by the following process:
• If a winner has not been determined by the end of the additional three turns,
the player with the greater Life Point total wins the game. If both players’
Life Points are equal, play continues until the first change in Life Points.
Always resolve all effects that are already on the chain before comparing
the players’ Life Points.
• After the winner of the game in progress has been determined, a player wins
the Match if he or she has more game wins than the opponent. If both players
have an equal number of game wins, they will start a new game. This game
will last for a maximum of four turns, two for each player. Side Decks may
not be used before starting this game. At the end of the fourth turn, the
player with the greatest Life Point total wins the Match. If the Life Point
totals are equal, continue play until the first change in Life Points. Always
resolve all effects that are already on the chain before comparing the
players’ Life Points.
• If players are between games when time is called, and one player has a
greater number of game wins, that player wins the Match.
