I was toying with the idea of writing a big ol' post on how to run a league but then thought, "hey, I bet others have some good tips on what works for them." So, going on that train of thought I figured I'd start a new thread that hopfully everyone who runs a league will post some good tips to. With that, here are a few things that I find helpful First and formost, remember that leagues are supposed to be fun! I know this is a silly tip, but I've seen many a leauge leader (for pokemon and other games) forget this (usually when they try to turn a small profit or get promo's for themselves). My other tip for the day, Make a league binder. I used to carry the papers in a folder, the promo's were in a box, rules on my pda, etc, This created a big clutter that was relativly unmanagable. plus, when someone wanted a specific promo, they'd go digging through the box to try to find what they wanted making a big mess. So, when we switched league locations, I consolidated everything into a large binder, putting the promo's in page sleeves, deviders for rulings, paper work, forms, etc, and this has done wonders for organization. Cutting down clutter and time needed to get organized play and tournaments underway. Plus when it comes to players picking out promo's or figuring out what I had to give away, everything was easily displayed. My third tip for the day, I dont know how many times I can stress this, HAVE A DECK MEDKIT! throw a bunch of ok cards(not bad, not great) and some energy together so that if someone shows up that's new at league that has a horrible deck or if one of your players needs a few cards you have some on hand to help them out. I know alot of people have large collections, surely you can donate a few of those cards to enhance the enjoyment of your members in need. To be sure, I have many other tips I'd like to share, but I'd also like to hear things that other league leaders do.
