More New Game Mats for the 250th YCS!

April 1st, 2023

We showed you the stunning Participation Prize game mat in the coverage earlier today, but that’s far from the only game mat up for grabs this weekend. Like all YCS tournaments, the top finishers in the elimination rounds will earn a second game mat as part of their prize, exclusive to the Top Cut!

Previous YCS tournaments this season have awarded a yellow game mat featuring Anotherverse Dragon, but this mat features a new color scheme with the 25th Anniversary and 250th YCS logos. This mat won’t be available at future YCS weekends – it’s only for the 250th YCS events – and that makes it an extremely rare collectible, as well as a remarkable memento for anyone who earns it.

Also available this weekend, a brand-new prize mat for Duelists competing in Win-A-Mat Side Events!

Like the Top Cut mat, this game mat’s exclusive to the 250th YCS tournaments this weekend. Featuring Yugi with Black Luster Soldier – Legendary Swordsman and Playmaker with Firewall Dragon Darkfluid – Neo Tempest Terahertz, this mat pays homage to the special guests we’re hosting here this weekend, Yu-Gi-Oh! series voice actors Dan Green, the voice of Yugi Muto; and Jake Paque, the voice of Playmaker.

Voice actor-inspired prize mats have been awarded in the past, and each is exclusive to the event at which the voice actors performed. So once again, this may never be awarded anywhere else at future events. It’s one of the hottest prizes here this weekend, since it’s so rare to see two eras of Dueling united this way!
