UDE Policy Statement updates
Please be aware that the UDE Tournament Policy and the Yugioh Tournament Policy has been updated and there are some changes players may want to know. Of most concern to players are the ones quoted below, however, please review the new policy statements for full details.
From the UDE Tournament Policy
To guarantee fairness, each player must ensure that his or her deck is thoroughly randomized before presenting it to an opponent at the start of any game. Players are encouraged to mix several different shuffling methods, such as pile shuffling and riffle shuffling, as they randomize their decks.
Once a player thoroughly randomizes his or her deck, he or she must present it to the opponent. The opponent may either shuffle the deck for at least ten seconds to further randomize it, or to make one cut. If the opponent shuffles the player's deck, then each of the players, first the player and then the opponent, must cut the deck. If the opponent chooses to just cut, without shuffling, then the deck is randomized and the players may not perform any additional shuffling or cutting.
Presenting your deck to your opponent implicitly states that you have thoroughly randomized your deck. Players may not pre-set or sort their decks in any specific order before shuffling. Stacking a deck or illegally manipulating the order of the cards while shuffling is considered cheating.
Players are expected to shuffle quickly. Players are limited to 30 seconds of shuffling during a game and two minutes of shuffling between games.
18. Determining Who Plays First
Before the start of the first game in a match, a random method is used to determine who chooses which player plays first. In a best-of-three match, the player who lost the previous game decides who will play first in the next game. If the previous game was a draw, the player who chose in the previous game decides who will play first in the next game. If a player is issued a game loss prior to the first game in a match, that player chooses who plays first in the next game.
Players that do not explicitly choose which player plays first, prior to drawing their hand, are assumed to have chosen themselves to play first.
22. Note taking
During play, players may take any notes they wish regarding the game in progress and may refer to those notes as they wish. Note-taking must not interfere with the normal flow of play, and no additional time will be allocated for it. Notes are public information to both players.
23. Outside Assistance
Players are not allowed to receive assistance from anyone not directly involved in the game. This includes advice or hints from other players or spectators who are not involved with the game. This also includes notes written prior to the game, either by the player or someone else.
Judges can be directly involved in the game, and may answer rules questions, but they should avoid answering questions about in-game decisions that would give the player direct advice about the current game.
