Stores are welcome to add additional participation or performance-based prizes to their Pro Quest events.

Season Dates

What are the season dates and when can I sanction the event?
Pro Quest Season 5 will run from Saturday 13th April to Sunday 5th of May 2024. Events can be sanctioned now!

Is there any flexibility on the event dates?
Events must be run in this window. If stores cannot run the event during this time the event MUST be cancelled and the Prize Kit MUST be returned to your distributor.

How will I know if my store is selected for Pro Quest Season 5?
Stores will receive an email invitation to notify that the option for Pro Quest Season 5 2024 will appear in GEM when creating a new event.

Event Structure

Is there a minimum number of players to run this event?
Pro Quest events need a minimum of 8 players to run. If an event runs with less than eight players it will not provide any invites and the store will lose the right to host an event of this level in the future.

Is there a maximum number of players?
Pro Quest events are very popular event series and frequently attract a high number of players. Stores may set an attendance cap for their Pro Quest events in line with their store's capacity and staffing capabilities, however, you may wish to consider an external venue if your store has the capacity for less than 32 players.

If your event does have an attendance cap then we encourage you to have a clearly communicated pre-registration process to reduce the risk of player disappointment.

Classic Constructed Event Structure

Players Swiss Rounds Top Cut
8 3 None
9-16 4 Top 8
17-32 5 Top 8
33-64 6 Top 8
65-128 7 Top 8

How long should I budget for my Pro Quest event?
For Classic Constructed Pro Quest events, we recommend 55-minute rounds. This allows players up to 5 minutes to present their decks and at least 50 minutes to play their match.

Pro Quest Prizes and Distribution

How is the prize kit going to be distributed?
The Prize kit will be supplied by your distributor. Distributors will be notified of participating stores once the event sanctioning window has closed.

How do find a judge for my event?
If you are not already in touch with a judge in your community, you have the following options available after signing up on JudgeHub.

You can search for Judge near you via the search function or via the map function, and a direct message function is available to message them. Additionally, the Judge community is organized in regions.

Each region has a Judge Community Representative who is a contact point for the Judges in each region and can also be contacted by organizers to find local judges for their events.

One more option is to make an event on JudgeHub to have Judges apply, a guide to this and more functions can be found here.

You may reach out to a potential judge before selecting your event date, to make scheduling easier.
