Get Ready for the 2016 World Championship!

August 20th, 2016

The Duelists have not yet arrived in the tournament hall, but all of the present staff is brimming with anticipation! The Main Event room is set up for a spectacular show, and it looks incredible!


The room itself carries a slick glow due to the lighting. At the time the photo below was taken, that glow was blue – but the color of the glow will change throughout the weekend.

All competitors will be Dueling on the main stage and using exclusive World Championship 2016 Game Mats.

There are tons of seats for spectators to sit down in and join in on the action of the main event! The screens above the stage will display the action in the featured, live-streamed Duel.

This weekend’s voice actors – Dan Green (the voice of Yugi) and Eric Stuart (the voice of Kaiba) – will be making announcements throughout the weekend. They’re on the main stage now, rehearsing some of the announcements.

The main tournament hall also contains a coverage booth, where Jerome McHale and Luke Withington will be giving commentary all weekend!
