Top-Notch Judges Wanted For Our DCC Gen Con Tournament!

It is 500 years after the events of Sailors on the Starless Sea. Once more, the ruins of the keep are visited by strange noises, odd screams, and phantom lights. Something has returned from the deep, and the villagers are scared. Legends have carried forth through the generations how the village ancestors once stormed the keep and put down its evil. Today’s villagers remember the stories – and they will not let evil rise again. They form up ranks and send wave after wave of pitchfork-wielding peasants to assault the keep again. Nevermore shall the chaos lords rise! Not when the peasants have found the courage to…


The 2022 Gen Con DCC Team Tournament will be a 0-level funnel that sends the peasants to raid the Keep. We will be running 100 tables of round one events. Yes, you read that right. The tournament will grow five-fold and 500 players will assault the keep across 100 tables. Their success (or failure) will carry forward to the final rounds and once again one team shall be crowned champion!


You have proven yourself to be fabulous judges. And now we need you to join the ranks of our tournament judges. The 2022 tournament will be much larger but round one will also be much “flatter.” We are deliberately structuring the tournament to make it easier for new DCC players to join – and to make it easier for judges to participate in round one. Round two games will still be the traditional Tomb of Horrors-inspired “deathtrap dungeon,” but round one will be something an experienced DCC judge can pick up and play with much less “homework” than in the past. 

So the question is: Will you run one or two tournament events with us at Gen Con 2022? In addition to or in replacement of other events you may have considered?

If you are interested, please let Jen know at!
