1.B Roundup Categories In addition to sorting by Official and Social roundups, there are also four categories some roundups will fall into. Most of these will be Official, but some will be Social, as noted below.
1) Organized Play Seasons: There are two “seasons” of roundups held per year, and each will have a distinct theme and prize pool. Roundups in these seasons are typically run by select Tournament Organizers at local gaming stores around the world.
2) Conventions: Various gaming conventions are attended in an official capacity by Pine Box Entertainment throughout each year. For these conventions, special roundups will be held, most of which will be Official, but can also include special format Social roundups.
3) Badges: These are roundups where top players can earn titles that come along with a physical badge representing that title. These badges will sometimes have an impact on other roundups, such as a convention roundup where players can “call out the Marshal.”
4) Destination Events: These are the rarest category, usually held no more than once a year, where Pine Box will select a town or city for folks to meet up for a series of roundups, typically including both Official and Social roundups. These will usually be multiday affairs, with community outings planned by Pine Box while people stay in town.
The cards will be legal for Category 1) and Social roundups for all other categories only. We will update the Floor Rules to reflect this.
