Event Information

Staff Solicitation

Channel Fireball is thrilled to invite you to work with us on the Flesh and Blood World Championship and to help us to run all of the attached events during the rest of the weekend! This application will allow you to apply to be a Judge or Operations Team Member for this event. Please be sure to read the entire application carefully before applying. The application window will close at 11:59 PM (23:59) Pacific on Sunday, September 4th, 2022.

Staffing Information

In an effort to create opportunities for as many people as possible, we are offering positions ranging from two to four days (three event days + setup). Applicants available for two day positions will be given higher priority than those only available for three and four day positions. As you are answering the application questions, please select only those groups of days for which you are available to work. Please note that you may apply for multiple roles, and may have more than one role over the course of the weekend. 

The typical shift length is 10-12 hours with a one hour lunch break and at least one thirty minute break.

Judges

If selected to judge, you will be expected to work a minimum of two days, either Friday/Saturday or Saturday/Sunday. Some number of judges will be selected to work all three days. Judges interested in joining the Friday staff are required to be available at 1:00 PM (13:00) at the latest, and for those applying to a Sunday position, the expectation is that you're available until at least 8:00 PM (20:00).

Flesh and Blood is still a relatively new game, so you may not have an active Certification as a Flesh and Blood Judge. Certification isn't a requirement to be a Judge at the Event (although we will favor those who are in these applications), however you'll be expected to have working knowledge of Flesh and Blood gameplay and tournament rules, which can be found here: https://fabtcg.com/resources/rules-and-policy-center/

Judges can be assigned to any of the following:

  • World Championship
  • Calling
  • Scheduled Events
  • On Demand Events

Operations

Most operations positions are three day commitments which require availability from Friday morning at 8:00 AM (8:00) through Sunday evening at 8:00 PM (20:00), although a few may be scheduled to work Saturday and Sunday only. 

Operations Team may be asked to work in one or more of the following areas:

  • Information Desk
  • Registration
  • Prize Wall
  • Back of the House
  • Retail Merchandise Booth
  • Other Event Operations Duties

Thursday Set-Up

This shift starts at 10:00 AM (10:00) on Thursday and continues until the room is fully set up for the Event. This typically takes between ten (10) and twelve (12) hours. Our goal is to be completed by 8:00 PM (20:00). However, the shift can go later if all of the setup tasks are not complete. If you select this as an option, please be prepared for physical tasks, and please make sure you are available for the full day. Lunch will be provided.

Please be prepared for physical work, both in your attire and capabilities. Lifting and loading are a large part of the duties. Because of this, you are free to wear whatever attire allows you to be the most comfortable and safe while doing this work.

Sunday Strike

The Strike shift will start at 5:00 PM (17:00) on Sunday and will go until the Event is completely packed up (generally Midnight, (00:00), occasionally later). Please note that being selected for Sunday Strike means you won't be selected to be a judge or operations staff on Sunday morning; no staff member is meant to be scheduled to work two shifts in one day.

Please be prepared for physical work, both in your attire and capabilities. Lifting and loading are a large part of the duties. Because of this, you are free to wear whatever attire allows you to be the most comfortable and safe while doing this work.

Compensation

All staff members will receive the following as base compensation:

  • $300
  • Two (2) Booster Displays
  • One (1) Calling Playmat

For each day of work, staff will receive the following, depending on their role:

  • Floor Judge - $100 & One (1) Booster Display
  • Team Lead - $100 & Two (2) Booster Displays
  • Administrative - $100 & One (1) Booster Display
