TRADING CARD GAME (TCG) give Duelists across the nation the chance to team up with their classmates and challenge fellow Duelists from other schools!

“We have seen many players from the same school at our events competing against each other so we decided why not team up these talented Duelists and have them Duel against teams from other schools,” said Yumi Hoashi, Senior Vice President, Card Business for Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. “We will be kicking off the School Tournament Series on May 28 at the Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series (YCS) Providence, Rhode Island.”

Players from the same school can register as a team to compete for a variety of prizes, such as a donation back to the winning team’s school, collectible Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG product and a team plaque. To commemorate this inaugural event, all participants of the Yu-Gi-Oh! School Tournament Series will receive an exclusive, Yu-Gi-Oh! branded Journal!

The Yu-Gi-Oh! School Tournament Series are conducted as Advanced Format, Constructed Deck, Swiss Round events, with a Playoff Top Cut and prizes awarded at the end of the final playoff.
