Wizards of the Coast LLC (“Wizards”) is dedicated to bringing people together through their shared love of gaming. As part of that effort, we created a promotion program: the Wizards Play Network (the “WPN”). There is no fee to join or participate in the WPN, but it does require your active engagement and your agreement to the following WPN Terms and Conditions (“WPN Terms”). By joining the WPN, you acknowledge that, as a purely promotional program, the WPN does not create a franchise or agency relationship. Nothing in these WPN Terms preclude you from selling Wizards’ products or running unsanctioned Magic: The Gathering, Duel Masters or Dungeons & Dragons events.
The WPN Terms govern your participation in the WPN as a Retail Store (defined below) (referred to herein as a “WPN Member”).

- Wizards Play Network Code of Conduct (“WPN Code of Conduct”);
- Wizards Code of Conduct;
- Wizards Event Reporter End User License Agreement; and
- Supplemental terms communicated to you from time to time in connection with WPN programs (“Program Terms”).
It is your responsibility to ensure that you are in compliance with the WPN Terms. Wizards may revise, update or modify these WPN Terms, with or without warning, and in its sole discretion. We recommend that you review these WPN Terms from time to time. Your continued participation in the WPN following the posting of any such changes will constitute your acceptance to those changes.
Do not participate in the WPN if you do not agree with any portion of these WPN Terms. You may cancel your membership in the WPN (“WPN Membership”) at any time by following the procedures set forth in Section 12.
