Sanctioned Tournament Play

About 99 percent of games remain free to all attendees; only the Sanctioned Tournaments will have a materials fee. Every participant will receive prize support and every winner receives even more, while supplies last. Pick up game-play entries or bring your own products. Players who bring their own sealed decks may have them inspected by one of the sanctioned judges. The sanctioned DCI judges at SoCal Games & Comics will be running the Sanctioned Sealed Deck Magic, Force of Will, Cardfight Vanguard, Pokémon, and Yu-Gi-Oh! events. HeroClix will have its own judges from The Realm Games & Comics, and Majestix.

WonderCon 2016 will feature separate Sanctioned Tournaments with materials fees and prize support.
