Players have 10 minutes to finish the 3 extra turns. After 10 minutes or end of the third turn, whichever comes first, the winner is decided in
the following manner:

  • Cardfight!! Vanguard: The player with less damage wins the game. If the damage is the same, the game ends in a double
    loss.
  • Weiss Schwarz: The player with lower level wins the game. If the level is the same, the player with less clock wins
    the game. If the clock is the same, the game ends in a double loss.


In the top-cut, after 3 extra turns, the game will be decided by sudden death.

Deck Check To avoid disputes and cases of cheating, we would require all participants to fill in Deck Registration Forms, which include their deck list and a media release agreement before registering for the tournaments.
