Interesting. Need judges? Also, what prizes are available to be won? Who's also there to teach the game to people?
Not sure on the first two points- I'm just relaying what I heard from the store.
As to who can teach it...I've played a few times and though that certainly doesn't qualify me in any large way, I'd be happy to explain the game as best I can to anyone else there. And to be honest, beyond the basic turn structure, you play pretty much off the cards (play the card, do what it says).
