At this event, every player will receive 6 HS Triumphant Booster Packs at the beginning of the event. Each player opens all of his or her booster packs at a signal from the Judge and constructs a 40‐card deck using only those cards and any basic Energy provided by the Organizer. Players have 30 minutes to construct their decks. Decks may contain more than 4 copies of a single card, as defined by the card’s English title, with the exception of cards which are limited to one per deck by card text. Matches are then played for 4 Prize cards instead of the usual 6 Prize Cards.
Players may not trade the cards from their booster packs with other players until the Tournament ends. Consolation Prizes are only given to player who completed all 4 rounds of competition.
Format: Swiss / Four Rounds
Players will play against opponents matched up by using the Swiss pairing method which determine a single winner by pairing players with the same, or similar, match record against each other until there is only one undefeated player. The first round match-up is determined by random.
Depending on the age group of participants for this Tournament, the Tournament Organizer may separate the players into groups according the the Pokémon Organized Play's Age Division.
Time Limit: 30 mins per Round plus 3 Turns
We have imposed a time limit per round in order to run the event smoothly. If a match has not ended by the expiration of the round time limit, a winner must be determined without delaying the tournament for an unreasonable time.
If time is called during a player’s turn, he or she completes the current turn, we will then add 3 more turns. This is three turns combined not three turns for each player. This will mean that the player who is not active when time is called will get the last turn.
Use the following criteria, in order, to determine the outcome of a game that is unfinished after the three turns. After one of the criteria has been met, none of the others are applied.
(1) If one player was late to the match or was away from the match, without a judge’s permission, for any period of time during the round, that player loses the match. The judge must have been made aware of this absence in advance of the end of the match. If both players meet this criterion, ignore this tiebreaker.
(2) If both players were on time to the match and were not away from the match for any period of time, the judge determines the winner based on the number of Prize cards that each player has remaining. The player with the fewest Prize cards remaining wins the match.
(3) If both players have the same number of Prize cards remaining, the current game continues, starting with any in‐between turn effects that take place after the last completed turn, if necessary, until a Prize card is drawn. The player drawing the next Prize card is considered the winner of the match and the match ends.
