Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game

Konami has provided an update to their Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game Organized Play. The company has announced that it has decided to cancel its upcoming championship series event. It was scheduled to take place January 15-16 in Pasadena, California.

You can read the full statement below.

To the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME (TCG) community –

As we monitor COVID-19 pandemic developments, we continue to take seriously the guidelines and recommendations from government health authorities and experts, including the recent statement by LA County strongly suggesting avoiding large indoor gatherings.  Given the uncertainty surrounding the Omicron variant, with Los Angeles County reporting nearly 45,000 new cases over the weekend, and in recognizing our own responsibility to prioritize the health and safety of our entire Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG community, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the long-awaited first in-person Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series (YCS) event in Pasadena, California on January 15-16. In lieu of the in-person event, we will host an online Remote Duel YCS tournament during the same weekend. The Remote Duel YCS will be open to all Duelists in North America including those that were not able to pre-register for YCS Pasadena.

We apologize if this has caused any inconvenience to those who may be affected as a result. Refunds for the entry fee will be made available for any registered Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG players who do not choose to attend the alternate online Remote Duel YCS event. Please contact ygoreg@thesidedeck.com for a refund. In addition, all Duelists that registered for YCS Pasadena will be offered priority registration for an upcoming YCS event.

For future events on our schedule, we remain committed to monitoring the developments daily and will provide updates on those events as they become available.

World Championship.

Prizes include the gaming systems and special prize cards, with the winner picking up an Ultra Rare Duel Link Dragon, the Duel Dragon, and the special YCS trophy. And all attending Duelists that pre-register for the YCS will receive a special Game Mat and Promo Card.

Outside of the main tournament, there’ll be plenty of things for attendees to enjoy over the course of the weekend, including a Yu-Gi-Oh! Token Card booth and popular public events such as Win-A-Mat tournaments and ATTACK OF THE GIANT CARD!!

KONAMI will also be hosting a Remote Duel YCS in Latin America on the same weekend so Duelists in Latin America can participate in their own YCS.

KONAMI requires all attendees 12 years and older to be vaccinated.  Attendees under the age of 12 or who provide proof of a medical exemption must instead provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test result. Visit the Yu-Gi-Oh! event website for more details.

Unboxing: Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game: Cyber Strike Structure Deck

Master the forbidden Fusion arts that combine fierce Dragon and Machine monsters with Cyber Strike!

Cyber Strike enhances both of Zane Truesdale’s strategies from the Yu-Gi-Oh! GX anime! This is one of the most customizable Structure Decks yet. You can choose to focus on Zane’s original Cyber Dragon Fusion strategy, his Dragon-based Cyberdark strategy, or play both together in a single Deck like in the later seasons of Yu-Gi-Oh! GX.

Cyber Dragons! You can fuse together multiple copies of Cyber Dragon with Power Bond to create Zane’s signature Cyber End Dragon and raise its ATK all the way to 8000! It’s easier than ever thanks to a brand-new monster that can add Power Bond from your Deck and let you use monsters in your Graveyard as Fusion Materials for it.

Cyberdarks! Load your Graveyard with Dragons, then equip them to your “Cyberdark” monsters to power them up! Use Cyberdark Impact! to fuse together the original 3 “Cyberdark” monsters to create Cyberdark Dragon or use Overload Fusion to fuse any 5 “Cyberdark” Effect Monsters to create Cyberdarkness Dragon instead.

Both! Why choose just one when you can have both? Structure Deck: Cyber Strike specializes in fusing these two strategies together into a powerful hybrid strategy, and the ultimate symbol of this fusion is a new fusion of Cyberdark Dragon and Cyber End Dragon! This 5000 ATK powerhouse can also be Summoned by Tributing Cyberdarkness Dragon while equipped with Cyber End Dragon, so even the requirements for playing your new boss monster are flexible!

And More! With the new Spell Card Cybernetic Horizon, both strategies can fuse with no malfunctions! This card allows you to add a Dragon or Machine “Cyber” monster to your hand and fill your GY with Cyber Dragon or Machine monsters necessary for Overload Fusion! Reach for the horizon and grasp your victory.

Unboxing: Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game 2021 Tin of Ancient Battles

The second piece of an ancient legend stands before you! The 2021 Tin of Ancient Battles builds (literally!) on the foundation of the 2020 Tin of Lost Memories, featuring the middle section of the mysterious Pharaonic tablet discovered in Egypt! (Most Duelists never noticed, but the 2020 tins, and now the 2021 tins, have embossed/debossed sides, and rimless lids that fit flush with the tin body, allowing the tins to be stacked on top of each other to build the entire Pharaonic tablet once all three pieces have been assembled!) The eternal clash between the spirits of the Dark Magician and the Blue-Eyes White Dragon are immortalized in this carving, along with 3 brand-new World Premiere cards to give these monsters a new power boost. Like the 2020 Tin, each 2021 Tin of Ancient Battles will contain 3 extra-large Mega-Packs, each with 1 Prismatic Secret Rare, 2 Ultra Rares, 2 Super Rares, 1 Rare, and 12 Commons!

We open up the tin and what’s inside and you can get a chance to see what you might get!
