PokePopCast 32: Game State Disputes – He Said / They Said Situations

Game State Disputes, or “He said/They said” situations can be one of the scariest problems that a Judge has to deal with during a tournament. It feels like you are on a trapeze without a net. In the newest PokePopCast, we’re going to try to give Judges some techniques and tips to help deal with those situations and bring them down to earth for you.
Here you go, and enjoy!

 

PokePopCast 29: Marnie – Judge Seminar in a Card

Sorry for the delay in getting this one out. I actually recorded most of it a couple of months ago, but I had to revise the last section (see the video) and then the world (and my life) took a bit of a sideways turn. But you don’t want to hear about that.
So, in this video, we quickly cover the main rule changes that came with Sword & Shield and then use Marnie to go into a lot of different topics that judges should always be aware of. Hope you enjoy it!
