Proxy Policy

  • The following Standards and Practices apply to all competitive events that occur on The End Games' premises.

  • These do not apply to casual or narrative play unless there are clear violations of The End Games Player Code of Conduct

Games Workshop

As per GW's rules:
- "Playing exciting, atmospheric games with finely detailed, painted miniatures is intrinsic to the Warhammer experience. With this in mind, all miniatures in your collection must be Games Workshop or Forge World miniatures(excluding basing or scratch-built components), and be fully assembled and painted to at least a Battle Ready standard."

 

Based on Community Standards, we will also adopt the following for competitive play:
- "Conversion, Counts-as, and Proxies (“Alternative Models”): You must seek permission from the TO's for all alternative models, including conversions, 3d prints, custom sculpts, or 3rd party models. Failure to do so may result in the models being removed from play. Email photos of the completed models you would like to use to welcometo@theendgames.co before the event, and be sure to specify which units you would like to use them to represent. Please note that the TO's will not give you permission to use pirated clones of GW models, whether they are 3d printed or recasts. Alternative models must be clearly representative of the model they are intended to replace and must be easily visually differentiated from other units in your army by your opponent without an excessive amount of additional props, visual aids, or explanation. During play you may not gain any benefits from any alternative models (“modeling for advantage”), but may suffer any downsides. Benefit of the doubt will be given to your opponent in the case of conflicts over line of sight to or from alternative models."

Magic the Gathering

As per Wizards of the Coast's rules:

- "Cards used in Wizard Play Network Sanctioned Events events must be authentic Magic cards. The only exception is if a card has become damaged during the course of play in a particular event (for instance, a shuffling accident bends a card or a drink gets spilled); in that case a judge may issue a proxy for use only for the duration of that event so the player can continue playing.
A proxy card is used during competition to represent an otherwise legal Magic card or checklist card that can no longer be included in a deck without the deck being marked. For a proxy to be issued, the card it is replacing must meet at least one of the following criteria:

-The card has been accidentally damaged or excessively worn in the current tournament, including damaged or misprinted Limited product. Proxies are not allowed as substitutes for cards that their owner has damaged intentionally or through negligence.

*The card is a foil card for which no non-foil printing exists."

Flesh & Blood

As per Legend Story Studio's rules:

- "4.3. Proxy Cards A proxy card (proxy) is a card that is used to represent an official card in a game. Proxies are not permitted unless officially issued by the Head Judge of the tournament. The Head Judge may issue a or approve a proxy at their discretion in the following situations:

• A foil card where the foiling is the cause of it being marked in the deck, and there is no non-foil version of the card or it would be unreasonable to expect the Player to find a substitute.

• A damaged card where the damage is the cause of it being marked in the deck, and the card was opened from limited product damaged or the damage was caused by the Player’s opponent or a tournament official.

• A token-rarity card at a limited event where there are insufficient official cards.

• A created card where a Player has made a reasonable attempt to supply enough created cards for their game but it is not sufficient for the current game-state.

• Printed Ira Welcome decks at a Learn to Play event.

A proxy is used during the tournament to represent an official Flesh and Blood card. The player must have the original card or the information of the original card for the opponent to reference during a game that involves the proxy. The proxy is only legal for the duration of the tournament it is issued. Proxies that have been issued from other tournaments and self-made proxies are not tournament-legal."

Yu-Gi-Oh

As per Konami's rules:

- "Proxies (cards used to represent a different card) are not allowed in Sanctioned or Official events. Photocopies, cards that have been relabeled, etc., are considered “proxies” and cannot be used in your Deck in a Sanctioned or Official tournament. This includes Tier 1 events. Even if you own an official copy of the card, you cannot include proxy cards in your Deck."

Digmon/One Piece

As per Bandai's rules:

- "2.4.1 Cards Only appropriate cards created by Bandai Co., Ltd., or those recognized by Bandai Co., Ltd. may be used at events. Cards that have been marked, signed, painted, stamped or otherwise altered in any way are forbidden and cannot be used in official events. Cards should be sleeved in opaque sleeves. Cards that are damaged (creased or bent) may not be used if this difference can be felt through a sleeve. Gameplay information printed on cards cannot be obstructed in any way. Cards must always be readable to the owner, judges and the opponent. Players in North America, Latin America, Europe and Oceania must use English language cards at all tournament events."

Star Wars Unlimited

As per Fantasy Flight Games' rules:

- "6.2 Judge Proxies A judge proxy is used during competition to represent an otherwise legal Star Wars: Unlimited card, often to substitute for a card that can no longer be included in a deck without the deck being marked. A judge proxy may only be issued by the Head Judge, and only if one or more of the following applies to a player’s card:

• The card has been accidentally damaged or excessively worn in the current tournament, including damaged or misprinted limited product.

• The card has a manufacturing defect for which no defect-free replacements exist.

Judge proxies may not be used to replace cards that the owner has damaged intentionally or through other forms of negligence.

Players are not permitted to create or use their own proxy cards. A judge proxy must be created by the Head Judge who, at their discretion, will determine if the creation of the judge proxy is appropriate. When the Head Judge creates a proxy, they must sign or initial it and include the date that it was made. The proxy is included in the player’s deck and must be marked as a proxy in a clear and conspicuous manner. The original card must be kept nearby during the match to be used as a reference card. A judge proxy is valid only for the duration of the tournament in which it was originally issued."

Lorcana

As per Ravensburger's rules:

- "(j) Proxy Cards. Retail stores may only allow "proxy cards" into their Events as permitted by the current Disney Lorcana Tournament Rules. A Proxy Card is a card issued by a Judge at an Event to replace a card that was damaged during play at that Event and may only be used for participation in and for the duration of that Event."

Pokémon

As per Play! Pokémon's rules:

- "If a card becomes damaged during a tournament in such a way that results in the card becoming marked, a judge may create a proxy of that card to act as the damaged card in all ways for the remainder of the tournament. Alternately, if the player has another copy of that card that is available for use, the player can simply replace the damaged card with an undamaged copy. In some cases, a card is damaged due to a production error. Players should do their best to avoid playing with these cards, though sometimes that is not possible. If the Head Judge feels that this creates a marked-card situation, the judge may create a proxy card to act as the damaged card in all ways for the remainder of the tournament. In all cases, the damaged card must be retained to use as a reference when the proxy card is played. Proxies may not be used at Play! Pokémon tournaments for any other reason, and should be treated as any other counterfeit card if discovered."
