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!
