“The Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series provides Duelists with an
intense action-filled weekend of Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG gameplay,
where everyone will start from a common beginning point with
the same number of packs” noted Yumi Hoashi, Vice President
of Card Business for Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc.
“Duelists will test their skills and strategies as they
compete head-to-head against some of the best players in the
country. By using sealed Decks, the emphasis shifts to
how well each individual Duelist plays and not which cards
are in their portfolio.”
Duelists should make time to pre-register for the YCS San Diego Main Event from 3:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. on Friday, April 5th, as those players that pre-register will receive an event-exclusive YCS San Diego Game Mat (seen below)! Registration will begin again promptly at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday, April 6th. Upon registering, Duelists will receive ten Battle Pack: Epic Dawn booster packs to build their Deck for Konami’s YCS San Diego.
No constructed deck? No worries! Even those without a constructed deck can get in on the excitement. The first day of YCS San Diego will be a Sealed Deck format using the Battle Pack: Epic Dawn booster packs, with nine Swiss rounds on Day 1. Everyone with at least 19 Match Points will advance to Day Two (three Points for a Win, one Point for a Draw, and 0 Points for a Loss). The second day of YCS San Diego will be played using Advanced Constructed rules and all Duelists who advance will have a fresh record, where each contestant will battle for five Swiss rounds followed by a cut to the Top 32.
The Deck-building clinics, held on Sunday, are a perfect
format for budding Duelists to learn how to build a Deck.
Giving tips and strategies, the Deck-building experts will
teach players how to build a Deck and how to incorporate
cards from new and old releases into their Decks.
In addition, Konami will once again hold Dragon Duels for
the younger players (for Duelists born in 2000 or later) on
Saturday and Sunday. The top four players in each of
the Dragon Duel events will receive a special Dragon Duel
Champion’s Medal, a Regional Game Mat, a Dragon Duel t-shirt
and an invitation to their 2013 Dragon Duel World
Championship Qualifier. Those who attend the Qualifier have
the chance to earn an invitation to the second annual Dragon
Duel World Championship to take place at the Yu-Gi-Oh! World
Championship in Las Vegas, Nevada August 10th
Duelists can also participate in a wide variety of fun and
challenging Public Events to push their Dueling skills to
the limit! Konami will be conducting a host of events such
as Regional Qualifiers, 3 vs. 3 Team Dueling, ATTACK OF THE
GIANT CARD!!, Win-A-Mats, Duelist League,
Onslaught of the Fire Kings Structure Deck Tournaments,
and Sealed Pack Tournaments for Battle Pack: Epic Dawn,
featuring exclusive Starfoil prize cards only available at
premier events. In addition, for the beginning
Duelists, Konami will be holding a Deck-building clinic, to
teach the basics on building a Deck to younger Duelists in
The Main Event winner, the two runners-up and winners of Sunday’s two Public Event playoffs will each be awarded a YCS prize card.
