ATTENTION!! If you have hosted a tournament in the past and are a board member, please PM me if your "Position" has not yet been updated to Tournament Host. If you have another position apart from Junior Member or Senior Member, you must choose between that position or Tournament host. Elders, Playtesters and the like may not change their positions please. Thanks and Godbless.

Redemption® CCG Game Master - is a host, judge, referee, etc. who has committed himself/herself to promote Redemption® gaming by organizing a tournament no matter how small the attendance.
Wikipedia has a definition: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Game_master
In Redemption®, all it takes is be at least 15 years of age to host. If you are younger than 18, all you need is adult supervision during the tournament itself.
Shown below are quick start downloads for you to start your Redemption® hosting:http://www.cactusgamedesign.com/message_boards/redemption-tournaments/tournament-resources/msg5268/#msg5268
Fast Track hosting tips:
a. You may host your first two Local tournaments by yourself, then you are allowed to host your first District tournament, etc...
b. An existing host who has hosted above Local and District level may co-host with you on your first Local, and then co-host again as you jump ahead to your first District tournament without needing to host another Local.
