Q: What if I am running late for an event?
A: Game Time is committed to starting events on time. Please make sure you allow yourself time to arrive, check your deck and register for the event. If you have pre-registered for an event and you are going to be late, please let us know. This situation will be handled per Wizards of the Coast tournament rules as stated below.
Players are expected to be in their seats when each round begins. Players arriving at their seats after the round begins may be subject to tardiness penalties listed in the DCI Universal Penalty Guidelines. Players who fail to arrive at their seats by the end of any round will be dropped from the tournament.
At team events, if one or more members of a team are not in his or her seat by the end of the round, that team is automatically dropped from the tournament.
