Players winning prizes at Star City Games® events must submit a complete and appropriate tax form with the following information in order to receive their prize:
- Full Legal Name
- E-Mail Address
- Full Mailing Address
- Social Security Number
- Dated Signature
All Open and Invitational prizes are sent as a check to the address on the player's submitted tax form within thirty (30) days of the event where the prize was earned.
If a player fails to collect a prize on-site or fails to provide Star City Games with the appropriate tax paperwork to have a prize sent to them, Star City Games will attempt to contact the player and obtain the information needed for them to receive any such prize. However, it is ultimately the player's responsibility to provide this information in a timely manner to Star City Games.
All prizes won at a Star City Games event must be collected or requested in writing within 120 days of the event. Prizes not collected, or requested, after that time will be considered forfeit.
All Prize Wall tickets must be redeemed on-site during the event weekend in which they were earned. Prize Wall tickets not redeemed by the end of the event weekend in which they were earned will be considered forfeit.
All non-monetary prizes (trophies, etc.) must be collected on-site during the event weekend in which they were earned. If they are not, shipping costs for items other than monetary prize payouts are the sole responsibility of the winner.
Prize Splits and Points
No prize splits are allowed in Star City Games® events, except as explicitly allowed by Wizards of the Coast policy (MTR, Section 5.2). A finals prize split negotiation that determines a winner requires one player to drop from the event prior to the finals. In the event that a prize split results in a finals not needing to be played, no SCG Points will be awarded to any finalist.
Although monetary prizes may be split as desired in the finals, SCG Points, Star City Games Invitational qualifications, and Players Tour qualifications are attached to specific finishes and the results of played matches will be conclusive. Any match played must be done so in good faith.
Splitting or negotiating to attain or relinquish SCG Points is strictly prohibited, as is any attempt to circumvent this policy. Such actions may lead to disqualification from the event and/or a ban from Star City Games events.
Please allow forty (40) days from the event date to receive a prize check.
In the event that a player does not receive a check for prizes earned at a Star City Games-organized event:
1. If the player provided the correct mailing information, and the check not being received resulted from an error by Star City Games staff, the check will be reissued for the original amount. The reissued check will be sent as soon as the corrected address can be confirmed.
2. If the player provided correct mailing information, and there was no error made by Star City Games, the check will be reissued for the original amount sixty (60) days after the date on which the original check was issued. If the player would like to have the payment sent within the sixty (60) day waiting period, the player may elect to have the $30 fee charged by our bank to stop payment on the original check deducted from the reissued check. In this case, the reissued check will be sent as soon as the corrected address can be confirmed.
3. If the player provided incorrect mailing information that resulted in the check not being received, the $30 fee charged by our bank to stop payment on the original check will be deducted from the reissued check. The reissued check will be sent only after the corrected address can be confirmed.
All reissued checks will be sent via trackable method to ensure delivery.
