Welcome to the Ultimate Duelist Series Invitational – Summer 2018!!

August 25th, 2018

The best Duelists have gathered here in Kansas City, Missouri to compete for the title of “Ultimate Duelist” and some of the coolest prizes ever offered at a Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME event! Pins, medals, lanyards, cards, and an exclusive Game Mat are all up for grabs this weekend, but all eyes are on the first place prize: An extraordinary championship belt with a design inspired by one of the most iconic cards in Yu-Gi-Oh! – The Seal of Orichalcos!

The championship title along with the belt entitle its wearer to FREE entry into any Tier 2 event in North America and Latin America, including Regionals and YCS tournaments. In addition, at YCS and WCQ events, the holder of the belt receives instant VIP status and a 2 Round BYE for the event!

Sky Strikers, Goukis, Trickstars, Altergeists, and Mekk-Knights are all expected to make a splash this weekend, and the Ultimate Duelist will be prepared to face off against all of them and more in the tournament. In addition, Shadows in Valhalla is brand new and mostly untested, and the cards in the set – including Aleister the Invoker of Madness and Zigfried von Schroeder’s Valkyrie cards – may throw some Duelists for a loop. There will be 8 Swiss Rounds today, and the Top 32 Duelists at the end of today will advance to Day 2 and Duel in 4 more Swiss Rounds. From there, the Top 8 Duelists will battle it out in three single elimination rounds, until one player remains as the “Ultimate Duelist”.

The path to becoming the Ultimate Duelist won’t be easy, but the 163 Duelists in attendance this weekend are ready for the challenges that await them. The competitors are shuffling up their Decks and about to begin. It’s almost time to Duel!
