The Vampire: Elder Kindred Network (V:EKN) Tournament Rules help maintain fair and consistent worldwide sanctioned tournament play for all Vampire: The Eternal StruggleTM (V:TES) games. In order to maintain this tournament system, participants and officials must treat each other in a fair and respectful manner, following both the rules themselves and the spirit in which they were created. Players who violate sections of the V:EKN Tournament Rules will be subject to the appropriate provisions of the V:EKN Judges' Guide.

Rarity indicators

The rarity of each card is indicated in the card lists above by a letter code sometimes followed by a number. For boosters (random packs), the letter code indicates whether the card is Common, Uncommon, Rare, or Vampire rarity (that is, it indicates on which sheet the card is printed). Some lists also include rarity indicators for the Preconstructed starter deck cards. If the rarity letter is followed by a number, that number represents the number of times the card appears on that sheet. So an R2 would be twice as common as an R1. If the letter is not followed by a number, that means the card appears only once on the sheet. For bundles (fixed content), the rarity number indicates the number of copies of the card in the bundle.

Note: An "uncut card sheet" is a 10x10 sheet of cards.
