Press Release: Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series Lands in San Jose, California November 7 & 8

More than one thousand Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG Duelists attended the Yu-Gi-Oh! CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES (YCS) in Dallas last month and many are now headed to San José, CA for the last North American YCS of 2015. KONAMI presents this premier-level event for the massively popular Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG November 7-8 giving players an additional opportunity to vie for the coveted title of Champion before year’s end.

YCS San Jose gives Duelists of all ages, novices and veterans alike, a chance to compete for a bounty of exciting prizes. The first place winner will receive an Ultra Rare version of the latest most sought-after prize card: Minerva, the Exalted Lightsworn – one of the rarest Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG cards in existence!

Hopeful Duelists will enter downtown’s Parkside Hall on Saturday morning self-assured that they have the right combination of cards and strategy to win round after round and advance to the Final Round on Sunday and the opportunity to Duel for the title of YCS Champion.

With the newest products, the High-Speed Riders and Dimension of Chaos booster sets adding suspense to the Duels, YCS San José will be an excellent environment for live game-testing as Duelists unveil brand-new strategies and Decks. Duelists will need to devote extra attention to see how the inclusion of the new cards from these products impacts the YCS standings!

Accompanying the Main Event, KONAMI will also be conducting Dragon Duels (for Duelists born in 2003 or later). The Dragon Duel tournaments on both Saturday and Sunday will be sealed, using Battle Pack: Epic Dawn, where each Duelist is given ten sealed Battle Packs to make a new Deck. The top four finishers in the Dragon Duel events will receive winners’ medals, a Regional Deck Box, and a 2016 Regional Game Mat. Top-ranked finishers will also win an invitation to their 2016 Dragon Duel World Championship Qualifier. The two victors from the Saturday and Sunday tournaments will face off in a best 2-out-of-3 match using their own pre-constructed Decks in the Advanced Constructed format, to determine the weekend’s overall winner and a chance at the ultimate prize: to hoist the Dragon Duel Champion’s trophy and the coveted title of YCS Dragon Duel Champion! In addition, the Dragon Duel Champion will also receive a previously issued Super Rare YCS prize card. Entry to the Dragon Duel tournaments is free to qualified players.
