Bushiroad Judge Program

Bushiroad Judge Program

As the tournament scene for Bushiroad’s Trading Card Games grows larger worldwide, we are seeking to gather fans who would love to assist in ensuring tournaments are professional and enjoyable.

The Bushiroad Judge Program aims to improve the quality of our tournaments by gathering judges who not only have an in-depth knowledge about the games and tournament organization but are also willing to assist in providing the best experience for our players.

Following the Judge Program for Cardfight!! Vanguard, Weiss Schwarz and Future Card Buddyfight conducted earlier this year, we are extending the program to Dragoborne –Rise to Supremacy– as well.
