Yu-Gi-Oh! CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES COMES TO ANAHEIM  

Premier-Level Tournament Expects Thousands of Players

 

El Segundo, CA (October 28, 2014) – Sunny Southern California welcomes Duelists from all corners of the globe to the Yu-Gi-Oh! CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES (YCS) event, presented by Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. (KONAMI).  The YCS is a traveling, premier-level Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME (TCG) competitive tournament, a game made famous by the Yu-Gi-Oh! TV animated series. From November 22nd – 23rd, Duelists young and old, novice and veterans alike, will compete for a bounty of valuable prizes. The first place winner will receive an Ultra Rare version of the latest most sought-after prize card: Ascension Sky Dragon – one of the rarest Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG cards in existence!

 

Hoping to be a part of Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG history, more than one thousand Duelists will enter the Anaheim Convention Center on Saturday morning believing they have the precise combination of luck and strategy for a shot at glory and prizes. Duelists will put their practice and Deck-building skills up against the best the game has to offer for the chance to advance to the Final Round on Sunday and the opportunity to Duel for the title of YCS Champion.

 

With the newest booster set, The New Challengers, releasing on November 7th, YCS Anaheim will be a testing ground of sorts for Duelists to unveil brand new strategies and Decks. Duelists will pay extra attention to see how diverse the game has become and what Decks prove worthy, especially with the introduction of some of the most powerful Pendulum Monsters to date! Pendulum Monsters are half Monster Card and half Spell Card and can swing the tide of battle with Pendulum Summoning, a powerful new game mechanic for the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG.

 

YCS Anaheim will also be the first YCS to feature Duelists who have qualified for VIP treatment via the VIP Qualifier tournaments only available at Top Performing Official Tournament Stores (OTS). VIP Duelists will receive free entry to the YCS, reserved seating, additional match coverage, and a two round bye in the main event. Duelists should contact their local OTS to see if they will be holding a VIP Qualifier tournament.

 

Pre-registration for YCS Anaheim will run from 3:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. on Friday, November 21st and registration will continue promptly at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday, November 22nd.  Upon registering, Duelists will receive five The New Challengers booster packs for participating in KONAMI’s YCS Anaheim.  Round One will start at 10:00 a.m. and the top ranked YCS finishers will earn invitations to participate in the 2015 World Championship Qualifier. Players will use their constructed Decks until the Top 16 are determined, then the Top 16 Duelists will draft cards from the recently launched Battle Pack 3: Monster League and will use Decks built solely from this product to compete for the Championship. For those Duelists unfamiliar with drafting, KONAMI has created a series of helpful videos at www.youtube.com/user/OfficialYuGiOhTCG.

Accompanying the Main Event, KONAMI will be conducting Dragon Duels (for Duelists born in 2002 or later). The Dragon Duels at YCS Anaheim will be Sealed Play using Battle Pack 3: Monster League and entry will be free to all qualified players! The top four finishers in the Dragon Duel events will receive winners’ medals, a Dragon Duel T-Shirt, and a 2015 Regional Game Mat. Top-ranked finishers will also win an invitation to the 2015 Dragon Duel World Championship Qualifier. The two victors from the Saturday and Sunday tournaments will face off in a head-to-head playoff matchup to determine the weekend’s overall winner and a chance at the ultimate prizes: to hoist the Dragon Duel Champion’s trophy, and for this event only, a trip to Japan to attend the 2014 Jump Festa event in December, and the coveted title of YCS Dragon Duel Champion!

 

Additionally, a full range of Public Events such as Regional Qualifiers, 3 vs. 3 Team Dueling, ATTACK OF THE GIANT CARD!!, Win-A-Mat, Battle Pack, and Battle City Tournaments will be held through the weekend.

 

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.  The Main Event winner will take home an Ultra Rare version of the Ascension Sky Dragon prize card, with the other winners bringing home Super Rare versions.  Additionally, the top ranked Duelists will win a Top Cut Game Mat for this event that matches the artwork of the Ascension Sky Dragon card.
