There is no obligation to attend each week; players can come and play as often as they would like and will always be welcome at the table. Late arrivals are discouraged, but you are welcome to join at the DM's discretion. (Making a character while a campaign is ongoing is a distraction to the other players). Each player will need to have their own dice set, a current Players' Handbook, and any additional books for their character classes and/or races. The shop's inventory is NOT a library for the players to utelize. Seating is limited to players who pay an event fee. Additional participants are always welcome, but the entry fee is required for anyone in attendance (including observers). Outside food & drink is permitted.

There are no deck restrictions, you can play Shahrazad or a Black Lotus, even a Blacker Lotus or one from the 30th Anniversary Edition; just as long as there are no proxies in your deck.

The Pokemon "Learn-to-Play" League is geared towards younger players, as such, we expect the highest standards of sportsmanship and civil behavior from everyone.
How it works?
Players are first bifurcated into two groups: those who know how to play and have a deck are paired against an opponent and can begin play. For the other group, we will cover deck construction, card types, and tools needed to participate in the event. Once each player is ready, they will be paired against an opponent. A Tournament Organizer will be present to directly assist with game play questions. We encourage players to complete any games that they start. Each player should try to play as many different opponents as possible. Players can play as much as they choose to until 2:00 p.m.

|Event Center Rules|
|Since 2007, Mystical Mayhem has awarded more than $100,000 in prizes. We foster a positive play environment that encourages players to compete with excellent manners (sportsmanship). Therefore, all participants at a Mystical Mayhem event are required to abide by these rules ...
The rule of the tournament center is simple: BE NICE. If you are not sure what it means to be nice? Keep your mouth shut and don't do anything until you are sure that your actions are appropriate. Players will generally be given a warning about their behavior, however, management reserves the right to remove from the property any persons who violate the intent of this rule. Persons removed at management's discretion will be disqualified and WILL NOT receive a refund of any event fees.
Conduct Regulation: We regulate conduct largely based on the hour of the day:
Before 6:00 p.m. G rated
6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. PG rated
9:00 p.m. to Midnight R rated
After Midnight inappropriate behavior is likely to occur ...
Rule of Law
We strongly support the Rule of Law, as such, we strive to respect the Constitution and expect others to do so as well:Free Speech: We are ardent supporters of free speech. Likewise, you are responsible for your words. Speech that is intended to cause harm, or otherwise disrupt the event, is prohibited. Likewise, some forms of speech are illegal; such as slander, incitement to violence, or conspiracy to commit a crime. A fundamental principle of a democracy is the ability to disagree without violence. We encourage a healthy and open debate when it is reasonable.
Weapons: The right to keep and bear arms is expressly protected in the Constitution. All weapons must be properly secured at all times. Absolutely no brandishing, demonstrating, or exchange of any kind. All persons must adhere to current Federal, State, and Municipal laws.
The following offenses are strictly prohibited; specifically:
Competitive Trading: Players are encouraged to trade at our events while at the gaming tables. Anyone facing, interacting, or otherwise engaged in conducting business with the shop are off limits! Any behavior that seeks to circumvent Mystical Mayhem's ability to make money will not be tolerated.
Cheating: Any attempt to modify the outcome of a match through illicit means; including bribery or misrepresentation of the game state (lying).
Stealing: Any attempt to subvert the rightful ownership of an item.
Abuse: Actions or words towards others intended to cause emotional or physical harm.
Illicit Activity: Any behavior deemed to be inconsistent with management's expectations.
Complicit Behavior: Active or passive participation, facilitation, or legitimization of any of the above.
Illegal Activity: We call the police.
|Bluffing vs. Lying A significant part of playing card games is ones' ability to bluff information. Do I have a counterspell? However, misrepresentation of the game state is not a 'bluff', it is an attempt to subvert the true outcome of a match. Drawing additional cards, placing an incorrect token, avoiding a non-optional triggered event, et al are forms of cheating, not bluffing. Wizards of the Coast has chosen to sanction cheating by allowing players to intentionally misrepresent the game state, by avoiding triggers that occur from cards one does not have possession of, responsibility for, or control of, etc. While this behavior may be tolerated, or even encouraged at other venues, it is not allowed at Mystical Mayhem events. When a player asks what the current power and toughness of a creature is, who is responsible for calculating that correctly? Both players have a duty to participate with an honest approach to the game state. A negative effect, from a card like Megrim, is triggered when an opponent discards a card. Intentionally not taking damage from a Megrim effect is a misrepresentation of the game state; if you want to cheat, go play elsewhere. A player has no obligation to give hidden information to their opponent. However, intentionally lying about information that is public knowledge is misrepresentation of the game state, and will result in a game loss, or a more significant penalty at the Tournament Organizers discretion.
Chair Purchase Policy: Players are not allowed to lean in the chairs. However, if you choose to purchase a chair for $35, you will have lifetime rights to that chair, which will allow you to lean in it until it is broken. You can kick people out of your chair. However, the chair must remain in the custody of the shop.
Closing Time: The shop closes promptly at 7:00 p.m. or following an event. Players must make arrangements for their own transportation. The Till Troll will announce a 30 minute warning before the store closes after hours. Staff are prohibited from providing rides or any kind of taxi services.
Deck Registration: When deck registration is required, players will be provided a registration sheet to record the total contents of their deck. A judge will randomly select a player before each round and perform a deck check. Errors are enforced based on the Rules Enforcement Level. Players are always required to play the same deck that they begin an event with. In limited formats, such as sealed deck or booster draft, a player may make alterations from their pool of cards between matches.
Late Player Attendance: Players are always welcome to join an event after it has already begun. If you desire to join, and know that you will be late, please call ahead to have your name added to the player list. A player cannot gain an advantage from joining events late, and will receive a zero-point bye for any missed rounds. There is no discount for late registrations. If there is only one player registered on time, they will be declared the event winner promptly fifteen minutes after the event as started.
Leaving Before an Event is Finished: Players should inform the Tournament Organizer when they leave an event before it is finished. A player may opt to be paired and then "no-show" their match, which will result in a 0-2 Loss and automatic drop from the event. A player must still be registered in order to advance to Finals matches and to receive prizes.
Minors & People with Special Needs: The shop does not take any responsibility for anyones attendance or conduct. Children, or individuals with special needs, should not be left unattended in the building at any time. We strive to provide a family-friendly atmosphere with strong Christain values as part of our core operating prerogative.
Open Play Area: The Tournament Center is available for reservations any time during business hours, with priority given to scheduled events. Tables may be reserved for $5, per person, for up to four hours of play. The entire Tournament Center can be reserved for $100 for four hours, please speak to management to schedule your private event. Reservations for after hours play are $30 per hour, with up to 16 players. During a scheduled event, seating and space is limited, please do not bring an excessive amount of things: 'setting up shop' at a table is strictly prohibited.
Outside Food & Drink: Players may bring their own food & drink into the Tournament Center and assume all responsibility for this. Eating someone else's food without permission, however, unattended food will be eaten without recourse. The coolers, refrigerators, and other storage is not available without explicit consent from management.
Non-Participants: Parents, wives and other supervisors for minors are always welcome in the shop. There is no additional participation fee as long as they are not actively engaged in the event. Playing games, learning to play, trading, socializing, and or deck construction strategy are all examples of engagement. It is strictly managements opinion on what constitutes engagement. Demand for a participation fee should be expected. We have a big screen TV and free Wi-Fi available for your convenience. Seating is limited, and at full capacity, chairs are reserved for paid attendance.
Parking Lot Area: The parking lot is included within the boundaries of these guidelines.
Photography & Video: Participation in our events is consent to be photographed and recorded. Players may have their likeness displayed in promotional and advertising material as a result. If you do not want your image to be used, please inform the Tournament Organizer, and a reasonable accomodation will be made. If someone takes a photo or video of you on our property, you may ask them to cease. Taking photo's or video's of minors for any purpose is strictly prohibited.
Prize Payouts: All prizes are paid out in store credit unless explicitly stated in the event promotion. Players are responsible for reporting their winnings to the IRS. Often, our staff will participate in an event, and any prize that they win is claimed by the shop. If, for any reason, a player has negative store credit they are not eligible for prizes. Players may opt to split a prize pool and agree to a draw. No player may induce the outcome of a match with any incentive outside of the prize pool.
Tournament Judges: We use a 3-judge system in all our events. Typically the Tournament Organizer will be the Head Judge. If you are not sure whom the judges are, ask before the event for a clear declaration. No one is ever the judge of their own matches. If you have a rules question or dispute with a player, raise your hand and firmly call for a "judge." Tournament staff are trained to NOT give advice during an event.
Tournament Structure: Refer to the chart to view the tournament structure. Unless specified in the event promotion, we will abide by it in all our events.
Trading Policy: Players are allowed to buy & sell for cash, or otherwise trade while at a gaming table in a registered event with other players that have paid to participate. We are not responsible for lost or stolen property. We will not comment on a trade under any circumstances. Our staff are not allowed to assume any responsibility for your decks, binders, backpacks, etc. Competitive trading is allowed, as long as it does not subvert our business from properly functioning. For instance, pouncing on inventory when a seller walks through the door is prohibited or 'setting up shop' at a table.
