Tournament Rules

Random Affiliation Constructed
In this format each player will play an affiliation which will be given randomly a week before the tournament. That is why only pre-registerd players can participate. The only special rule is, that only the given HQ may be used. It is recommended to use Quarren Labor Shortage but that is not a must. Apart from this all the normal rules apply.
Multiplayer TeamPlay
A team consist of two players and plays against another team in a 4-player-round. Team members sit together on one side on the table and are allowed to show each other their hand and drawn dilemmas to agree on tactics. Team members are not opponents when it comes to card effects. Apart from this all the normal rules apply. This tournament will not be used for Decipher-ranking.
GRAND PRIX
The Grand Prix is the main event of the convention which is named after it. While this event has been carried out annually since 2000, it has attracted over 100 different players and prizes with an aggregate value of several thousand Euros have been distributed. This year it will feature (in addition to several other items) vouchers for 200 Euro for Fantasy-In (which can be used directly in the shop or online):
  • 100 EUR for the winner
  • 65 EUR for runner-up
  • 35 EUR for the third place of the final-round
All players will be distributed by their Decipher Constructed Lifetime-Rating into three groups. The best two players of each group will be paired after 6 Rounds in the finals. The two winners with the highest scores continue to the second, "real" final. The categories are:
  • up to 1599 points: Amateur
  • up to 1699 points: Experienced
  • 1700 points and above: Professional
Decklists are mandatory, normal rules apply and the tournament is used for Decipher-rating.
To the Common People
The Common People Format is created especially for new players, here every player has to build a deck from a small and easily accessible card pool - because rare cards are forbidden! Only the following cards are permitted:
  • all cards with rarity S, C und U (Starter, Common, Uncommon)
  • cards with rarity R, P, A or D (Rare, Premium/Promo, Archive, DGMA) are NOT allowed!
Game duration is limited to 50 minutes - besides of this all the normal rules apply. This tournament will not be used for decipher-ranking.
Booster Draft
Booster Draft is a Sealed Deck Format which follows the draft rules: each player is handed one of the six starters (on loan) and 4 Booster Reflections 2.0, which are used to draft (drafted cards from the boosters will be retained by the players). In groups of 6 Players (all with different starters) each player opens the first booster and chooses one card. After choosing the first card, the remaining cards out of the booster are given away clockwise. Again a card will be chosen and the booster-remains will be given away clockwise. This is repeated until the last card is chosen. This procedure will be repeated with the other boosters, but the second and fourth booster will be given away counterclockwise. This format is very amusing at the end of a day. All the normal rules apply during the game and this tournament will be used for decipher-ranking sealed deck rating.
Premiere Series Regional
The Premiere Series Regional is the successor of the Premiere Series Invitationals and accessible for every player! Additional to prize support of Decipher/DGMA, there are 500F$ for the top 16 Player, which are usable in the Decipher Online Shop . Furthermore the first eight players get Premiere Series Points. Those Points are used on a Premiere Series Event (e.g. on game-fare in Essen) to get a free win in the first or even second round.:
  • Place 1: 125F$, 10 Premier Points (PPs)
  • Place 2: 75F$, 6 PPs
  • Places 3 - 4: 30F$, 4 PPs
  • Places 5 - 8: 25F$, 2 PPs
  • Places 9 - 12: 20F$
  • Places 13 - 16: 15F$
  • each Player will receive a special promo foil!
The tournament will be rated with double k-Value, normal rules apply and decklists are mandatory!
