IPG 3.6 Tournament Error — Limited Procedure Violation

Definition

A player commits a technical error during a draft.


Examples

  • A. A player passes a booster to their left when it is supposed to go to their right.
  • B. A player exceeds the amount of time allotted for a draft pick.
  • C. A player puts a card on top of their draft pile, then pulls it back.
  • D.  A player moves their head to the side at inappropriate times.

Philosophy

Errors in draft are disruptive and may become more so if they are not caught quickly.

Announcements prior to the draft or the specific tournament rules for the format may specify additional penalties for Limited Procedure Violations.
