Hello everyone. I’m here, an L2 judge from Thailand. Today I’d like to share my story about my personal experience of my first 2 GPs I ever participate (as a judge.) First of all, I am totally sorry for the delay in this article. It should have been released somewhere in December, but I was so busy around the year-end. Plus, I encountered unexpected news that my shop has to be moved away to a new location because the owner wouldn’t extend the contract. That made me even busier
Hi everyone! Welcome to the last article of this series. Today I’ll let you know how to travel around Bangkok easily and how to get to the MagicFest venue. Many of the references I’m using today will be taken out of other public sources since they’ve already done a good job in explaining it. Also, I’d like to give a big thanks to my judge colleague, . He has contributed so much in this article since he lives close to that area. A lot of pictures and videos in this article were taken by him.

Hi everyone! MagicFest Bangkok 2019 is coming up soon, and we’re all very excited about it. It’s been over 6 years since the last time we have an event of this size in Thailand. Let’s hope everyone could enjoy it! Just a short introduction of myself: I am , the owner of a small TCG shop in Bangkok, and also a level 2 judge. I really love Magic, and I want to do as much as I can to help make this MF Bangkok a success. Today I’d like to write something that will be useful for you
Just around a month ago, we had Thai Nationals 2018. As the owner of Hobby Bugong, the store that received the honor to run this year’s Nats, I had quite a fun experience I’d love to share. Running Nationals was never easy, and I knew that from the beginning. Nonetheless, there is no way I would turn this chance down. This year we had a crazy increase in player count: from 144 players in 2017 to 222 players! I was actually aiming at around 30% increase from last year so this 56% increase was
With the release of Dominaria, we judges have to update our knowledge with new card’s abilities, interactions, and new policies. That sounds utterly boring right? We have a way to make it more interesting, and what could be more interesting than a buffet! We all met at “In the Middle”, which was located right in the middle of Bangkok (no pun unintended). This meeting wasn’t only for updating our knowledge, but it was also for our Judge Manager Smith to hand out exemplar promos from
The first Magic Community Cup (MCC) started in 2017. This year we are aiming even further and bigger. Not only there are more shops in alliance, we are also using this event as a new training ground for judge fledglings. Ever since in-store GPTs were abolished, L0 and L1 judges have been struggling to gain tournament judging experience. There were total of 6 rounds of qualifier events at individual stores, culminating to a final tournament on a neutral ground. The whole event was promoted
