TCG Rulings

Judge Program Forum Rulings

  • For End of Match procedures, you resolve all appropriate effects before checking Life Point difference. For example, if the final turn of End of Match procedures is also the last turn for the effect of "Final Countdown", the effect of "Final Countdown" would be applied before the End of Match procedures Life Point check.[1][Notes 1]

Previously Official Rulings

  • You count turns for "Final Countdown" like this: Turn 1 is the turn you activate it, Turn 2 is your opponent's turn, Turn 3 is your turn after you activated "Final Countdown", etc.
  • You win when the 20th turn ends, before the Draw Phase of the 21st turn.
  • When your opponent chains "Imperial Order" to your "Final Countdown", the effect of "Final Countdown" is negated and you cannot start counting turns. But if "Final Countdown" is activated and resolves, and later "Imperial Order" is activated, it will have no effect on "Final Countdown" because "Final Countdown" will be in the Graveyard.

Notes

  1. "End of Match" is a procedure that is applied in official Tournaments when a Duel takes a long time to finish. The Judge announces to the Duelists that the Duel will end in a specific ammount of turns and when the final turn of End of Match procedures finish, whichever Duelist has the most Life Points is declared the winner.
  2. Konami Judge Program Rulings are considered unverified, as their source(s) are not publicly viewable. They are not confirmed as applicable to the TCG until they have been officially published by Konami.
