The Spoils Ambassador Program

Thank you for exploring The Spoils Card Game’s Ambassador Program. Below you will find our Ambassador Policy, which outlines all of the expectations and benefits of performing as an Ambassador. Underneath, you will find the Ambassador Application.


What is an Ambassador?

An Ambassador for The Spoils Card Game is a friendly, charismatic, and enthusiastic players that owns The Spoils cards and regularly plays with friends, family, and other players at their home, gaming group, conventions, or local game store. Ambassadors love The Spoils and enjoy teaching and sharing. Ambassadors exemplify good sportsmanship before, during, and after game play.

An Ambassador is a “standard bearer” for The Spoils and must always positively promote and portray themselves and our company in the most professional manner possible. Ambassadors are the frontline connection to the player community whose mission it is to cultivate and share an amazing gaming experience with old and new gamers alike. As a member of this team, each Ambassador will support their fellow Ambassadors and work together to make each and every The Spoils demo an outstanding experience and success.


What are the responsibilities of an Ambassador?

The Spoils Ambassadors are asked to organized, conduct, and report on demos held at their homes, gaming groups, local events, conventions, schools, public libraries, and friendly local game stores (FLGS). Ambassadors are given a special profile in our Player Portal where they can download resources to help make these events successful.

Utilizing these tools, Ambassadors focus on creating memorable game experiences that leave the participants wanting to play again.

Ambassadors are expected to run one (1) demo per month with each demo being reported through our Player Portal. Please note that The Spoils Employees randomly check-in with stores and event locations to ensure validation of demos and ask for feedback. Ambassadors that go two months without reporting a demo will lose their Ambassador status and may not be allowed to reapply to the program or redeem rewards points.

Ambassadors are highly encouraged to share their experiences on social media, YouTube, fan websites, podcasts, or other digital means. Additional reward points may be given to particularly successful Ambassadors for these extra efforts at the discretion of The Spoils Management.


Where can I lead The Spoils demos?

Home – Ambassadors are encouraged to start by showing their friends at around the kitchen table, in the living room, or during game night!

Friendly Local Game Stores (FLGS) – Visit and set up a demo at your Favorite Local Game store, either at the request of a retailer or through your approaching a retailer in your local area.

Gaming Group – Have a regular group of gaming friends? Show them The Spoils and earn Rewards Points for the demo!

Conventions – Big or small, we want to help you make your convention appearance a success. Bonus points are given depending on the size and dates of the convention. Contact organizedplay@thespoils.com to coordinate.

Organized Play – Sign up to run Organized Play events at a friendly local game store. First, make sure your game store has signed up for Victors Organized Play. Help with Spoiled Rotten and demo during the event! Store owners can run official Spoils tournaments and purchase organized play kits for bigger prizes and point multipliers.

Schools and Libraries – Take note that The Spoils has some mature content and may not be suitable for all schools and libraries, but using your best discretion, these locations might be a great fit for your next demo! Ambassadors should always use their best judgement when deciding where to host a demo event and who to demo to.


What is considered a “demo”?

Ambassadors should use their own cards to show new players how to play the game. Additionally, we are happy to work with an Ambassador to host a “New Player Tournament” at a FLGS. For “New Player Tournaments,” we provide free demo decks and promos. These events should be coordinated with The Spoils Management and the local retailer and scheduled at least two weeks ahead of time.


 What are my rights as an Ambassador?

Ambassadors serve on a strictly volunteer basis and are primarily motivated by their passion for The Spoils and desire to help it grow. We will provide the tools and training to help create a memorable experience, but we accept no responsibility for the costs incurred while volunteering, demoing, or hosting an event.

Travel, parking, meal and other misc. costs are the sole responsibility of the Ambassador unless specifically organized with an authorized member of The Spoils Staff.

While actions such as posting to social media, creating videos, translating to other languages, hosting websites, creating podcasts, managing communities, updating fan services, etc. are appreciated, they go above and beyond the call of duty or the scope of the Ambassador Program. And while extra Rewards Points may be rewarded on a case-by-case basis, there is no strict rule on how many or even if they will be rewarded. Ambassadors should not expect extra Reward Points for anything outside of demos, unless specifically arranged with an authorized member of The Spoils Staff.


What are Rewards Points and how do I earn them?

Ambassadors earn 10 Rewards Points per submitted demo which can be redeemed for exclusive prizes, promos, playmats, and even product. Available rewards are subject to change without notice.

In the Player Portal, Ambassadors can submit their demo events. When a demo is submitted, 10 Reward Points are added to their account balance which can be used to “purchase” rewards in the Rewards tab. Some rewards can be purchased with actual currency, while others can only be redeemed with points.

Aside from rewards offered through the Player Portal, Ambassadors will have the opportunity to earn unique rewards when they volunteer at conventions, shows, or perform as judges (when applicable).The_Spoils_Player_Portal_GRY

Additional points can be awarded based on individual performance, feedback, nominations, volunteering, positivity, and substantive additions to The Spoils community. Please note that this is at the discretion of The Spoils Staff and are not guaranteed, although we are always looking for reasons to award extra points!

Advice to an Ambassador pt. 3

Advice to an Ambassador pt. 3

This is part three of a three part series. Find part one here and part two here. Six – If Knowledge is power… then a god am I !!! (Or people are Lazy).  Okay this one, I admit, can be a little tricky and is very dependent on your situation on the ground, but the key thing to wining any campaign id information and in this case having it to hand. When it comes down to it people are; busy, distracted, unsure and do not have the time to (insert task), or as I like to call it lazy. Instead of deriding them for this obvious moral failing (tongue firmly placed in cheek) help them to over come their inherent lack of moral fibre and have information to hand. I guess my point is, make it as easy as possible for people to get into the game, the more barriers you can drop, the less excuse they can have to not play it. So what information do you need? Well the truth is dependent on who you are speaking to, so lets deal with shops first (which is the trickiest and I have to say I have an unfair advantage here). Stores; Remember at the heart of any store, there is a need to make a profit, which means people through the door and product that can be sold. So, if you can give a lot of information to the store owner so they don’t have to dig for themselves this will help. Therefore knowing the following is very useful; Who is the distributor for the game in the...

Advice to an Ambassador pt. 2

This is part two of a three-part article, Advice to an Ambassador. Find part one right here. Four – Selective targeting. Like any good revolution you can not be successful with out an ever band of growing and willing accomplices to help spread you dream of a Luridian take over. As an ambassador part of your aim should be to build the community, and get more and more people into the game, now this is where you can be smart. One tried and tested method is the scatter gun/ mini gun approach. Get as many people to try it as possible and wait for some people to get hooked. This can work but has the draw back of being rather labour intensive and well like a scatter gun (clue being in the name) a bit hit and miss. However ‘my young apprentice’ there is a another way, a surgical strike delivered with precision and at the right target can be far more effective than one would think! Getting the ‘right’ people on board can be they key to success or failure. So who are these mythical people (as we hear the stirrings of a Howard Shore score)? Store owners/ managers/ staff. Okay, okay I know these people are busy and you will have to pick your moment carefully, but lets be honest with ourselves, these people 90% love the stuff they sell. So, if you can get them on board they will help spread the word, they are much more likely to be on board for organised play and to allow events to occur in the store, also it...

Advice to an Ambassador

“The first rule of ambassador club is, never hard sell, the second rule of ambassador club is never hard sell.” – Advice to an Ambassador – So you have become a Spoils ambassador, you have taken up the mantel of the Micromajig revolution, succumbed to the world of Luridia and joined small but motivated band of rebels dedicated to bringing down the evil Galactic Empire… no wait, the last bit may be a little bit wrong… ahem. Joined an ever growing number of enthusiasts who love this game and want others to love it too. Well this is my guide on how to go about ambassadoring (with out the swanky diplomatic functions). Before we begin I must stress that this is just some thoughts and views that I have developed personally, therefore to quote Barbosa this is ‘not so much rules, as guidelines’. Some of it may work for you, none of it may work for you, hell it may be a revelation from on high to some (although I am not going to be changing my name to Brian). As you may have worked our from the quirky asides I hail from the once mighty Britannia (okay okay, the United Kingdom to you lot..or Britain for our American cousins) which does mean this will heavily be influenced by our rather reserved and some would say backward culture. So with that caveat in place, lets begin. ONE – Be inclusive The first thing that goes without saying is that the reason we are all here is that we love ‘The Spoils’, but here is the thing, there are many...
