The first step is to look over our schedule, choose an event you would like to work, and send an email to:Tim Shields at email@example.com
In the initial e-mail, judges should explain which event they want to work, why they want to judge, and give a summary of their experiences with tournaments.
Information about becoming a DCI certified judge can be found at…
In order to be a level 1 DCI certified judge, you need to be observed by a level 3 judge at two events and pass a rules knowledge test. Magic judges are trained, certified, supervised and promoted by the DCI. As a judge, if you help out at a DCI event you acting as a contractor and you are responsible to pay any taxes on "comp" that might be owed.
New judges (level 0) perform a variety of roles during the event which allow
them to demonstrate their competence, and learn new skills.
Some of the skills required include; score keeping, customer service, and providing rules interpretation.
The opportunity to gain experience judging, build your skills and judging
resume, and potentially take the judge test.
I like to thank our judges by providing lunch and snacks and some amount of product to help them practice and play more.
Our goal (depending on attendance) is to give judges product based on their experience.
You should review the rules of the game you will be judging.
You should get a good night's sleep
Bring a water bottle and wear comfortable shoes
DCI Judge shirts are hard to get. Usually you need to work a Pro Tour event, Nationals, or Worlds to get a DCI Judge shirt.
Please check out the each company’s website, if you have questions about a
particular game system.
