This policy, including all subsections, can be found in its entirety here.

This policy exists to explain what is required of tournament attendees, players, judges and spectators; how they should prepare for the event and what to expect at the event. Tournament Policy documents help to keep events consistent, so that attendees will always know what to expect at a KDE event.

Everyone who attends an official KDE tournament is expected to have read, understood, and adhere to all Tournament Policy and Penalty Guideline documents. Players should also read Policy Documents specific to the game they wish to play, as there will be more detailed information and additional rules which are relevant to that game provided in the game-specific document.

Specific events, such as the Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series and Regional Qualifier tournaments, may have a standardized Tournament Operation Document. Any tournament-specific rules in these Operations Documents will supersede directions given in this policy document.

Tournament Policy documents are frequently updated. The most current version of the Tournament Policy document can be found here:
