You can register right up to start time on the day of the tournament. The event is free and open to anyone.

Information about the event will also be posted on The Jankyard's Tournament Town Discord channel: You can post information and ask questions there under #sunday-tournament-announcements.

We will be hosting The Jankyard stream as part of the tournament at The stream goes live 30 to 60 minutes before the start of the event. We can provide support for getting signed up to the event during that pre-event time. You can watch the stream during the event as JT, the host of The Jankyard, will be streaming his games during the event and may join some players via Discord if he is not playing to commentate on their matches. Information during the event will also be posted on the stream. You do not have to join the stream to play in the tournament but it is a fun way to interact with JT and your fellow competitors.

Each round will start shortly after pairings are posted. Please challenge your opponent on MTG Arena using their full Arena name and #. For example, JT's is The_Jankyard#49252. You then do this by friending your opponent first and then issuing a friend challenge. If your opponent has not responded after 10 minutes, please let organizers know through MTGMelee. Don't forget to check in for each round in your player controller.

Once your match is over, the winner is asked to please report the result on MTGMelee. The other player will be asked to confirm the result. If you wish to drop, you can do so on your Player Controller page on MTGMelee.

The Jankyard moves its tournaments along quickly and starts the next round right after the last match of the previous round ends, so don't go away and pay close attention to announcements of the start of the next round.

Also, we offer another fun piece of interaction involving Discord. When you see your matchup MTGMelee, you can go to the voice channel on the Tournament Town Discord that corresponds with your table in the tournament. If you and your opponent both go into the voice channel, you can banter back and forth just like you were playing in a paper tournament.
