The Age Limit for Yu-Gi-Oh! Dragon Duel Tournaments Changes

Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game

The Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game has announced that the age limit for Dragon Duel tournaments will be changing!

Duelists born in 2006 or later (previously 2007) will now be eligible to compete in Dragon Duel tournaments for the 2019-2020 tournament season, starting this weekend August 16-18, 2019 at the Ultimate Duelist Series – 2019 Summer Invitational in Indianapolis, IN.

Dragon Duels are tournaments for children born after a certain year during a tournament season. Judges and staff members at Dragon Duel tournaments are accustomed to working with younger players, and children Duel with other children, rather than with older teens and adults. By increasing the age limit another year, we hope to continue providing a fun and entertaining tournament experience for younger Duelists.

Duelists participating in Dragon Duel events have a chance to win several unique prizes, such as prize cards, medals, game mats, and t-shirts, along with invitations to participate in their country’s Dragon Duel World Championship Qualifier. Dragon Duel tournaments are usually run at larger events such as Regional Qualifiers and Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series events.

Gen Con 2019: Jasco Games Reveals the My Hero Academia Collectible Card Game

Jasco Games is giving gamers from all over the world the first look into the upcoming My Hero Academia Collectible Card Game. The new CCG is scheduled to be released in stores early 2020, but before the official release, Jasco Games will be handing out Demo Decks and hosting Demo Tournaments to kick off the celebration of one of the world’s most exciting anime franchises!

My Hero Academia Collectible Card Game

UniVersus – A game where popular characters from any franchise can face off in card to card combat!

With the launch of the My Hero Academia CCG, Jasco is debuting their new CCG title, “UniVersus”. UniVersus is an update to the UFS game that originally launched in 2006 (and is still going strong today). The new game features a fresh new look, new card backs and improved game play. The basic game mechanics will still follow the Universal Fighting System, however, all cards released in 2020 and after will have the new look and feel of UniVersus, which will allow us greater creative freedom in exploring new mechanics to keep the game fun and will allow us to keep true to the themes and feel of future licenses.

Fans of the Universal Fighting System CCG have been anxiously waiting to hear if My Hero Academia will be compatible in the flagship UFS game. The short answer is, YES! My Hero Academia characters and cards will be fully compatible with existing UFS cards. In addition to this news, the My Hero Academia CCG will ALSO be treated as its own stand-alone CCG with unique organized play, tournament scene, special celebration events and consistent set releases planned out for the next several years. That means fans of My Hero Academia that wish to only play the My Hero Academia CCG AND fans of the flagship game, UFS, will both get to enjoy the new anime title.

The UFS standard environment will remain the same. Official tournaments already require card sleeves which means the new card backs will still be allowed after the release of UniVersus. UFS players, just remember to sleeve your cards in opaque sleeves (not clear/not see through).

Why is Jasco Games introducing “UniVersus” after 13 years of success with UFS?

Jasco Games believes in the fundamental importance of easy entry into our game and a strong grassroots organized play program for fans of our CCG titles. With the launch of UniVersus, new players can easily jump into the world of My Hero Academia and play the highly thematic and Japenese influenced game system created for the world. Players of our Universal Fighting System will also be able to enter UniVersus with no trouble, as it is fully compatible, fully supported and easier to pronounce!

When can you get demo decks and how?

Demo decks will be handed out at the Gen Con booth #2119 all weekend. If you are not able to make it to the booth or event hall for a demo, don’t worry! Just ask your local hobby store to contact Jasco Games to receive FREE demo decks to gear up for the official release. Hobby stores may request demo decks here:
