Eternity Code Premiere!

February 6th, 2020

The rules have changed! Duelists across the globe now have more freedom to build your Decks, and the Eternity Code booster set arrives in May with more Synchros, Xyz, and Fusions to bring you even more options. There’s never been a better time to create your ultimate Dueling strategy, one that fits your strengths and your style as a competitor.

But the rules of Deck-building aren’t all that’s changing! Beginning in April, Sneak Peeks are out and Premiere! events are in, a brand-new event series offering Duelists a superior launch experience for all quarterly, core booster releases. What can you expect from the Eternity Code Premiere! event?

First up, Duelists can purchase more packs of the new set than ever before. While Sneak Peeks limited Duelists to just 5 boosters, Premiere! events will include 5 packs with registration and give attendees the option to purchase additional packs, while supplies last. You can stay in the comfort of your home OTS and Duel like never before!

The promo card for each Premiere! will be far more exclusive at a rate of 4 promos per Premiere! kit, which will also include 2 Premiere! Mouse Pads as additional player support. The hosting OTS can choose to run their Premiere! event in the format that best serves their community: tournament play, open Dueling or a mix of both! If the OTS chooses to host a tournament, the promo cards and Mouse Pads will be split between prizing and random giveaways to make sure competitive and casual attendees both get a chance. Make sure to ask your OTS about their plans, and let your voice be heard so they know what your local community is hoping for.

For Duelists in North and Latin America, the first in the new series arrives the weekend of April 25 and 26 with the Eternity Code Premiere! event. With more exclusive promo cards, more freedom in event formats and increased opportunities to purchase more of the new release, Premiere! events will raise the bar for pre-release experiences in 2020 and beyond.

When:
Apr 25 – 26, 2020

A Change to Dragon Duel Tournaments

August 15th, 2019

Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME is excited to share that the age limit for Dragon Duel tournaments will be changing!

Duelists born in 2006 or later (previously 2007) will now be eligible to compete in Dragon Duel tournaments for the 2019-2020 tournament season, starting this weekend August 16-18, 2019 at the Ultimate Duelist Series – 2019 Summer Invitational in Indianapolis, IN.

Dragon Duels are tournaments for children born after a certain year during a tournament season. Judges and staff members at Dragon Duel tournaments are accustomed to working with younger players, and children Duel with other children, rather than with older teens and adults. By increasing the age limit another year, we hope to continue providing a fun and entertaining tournament experience for younger Duelists.

Duelists participating in Dragon Duel events have a chance to win several unique prizes, such as prize cards, medals, game mats and t-shirts, along with invitations to participate in their country’s Dragon Duel World Championship Qualifier. Dragon Duel tournaments are usually run at larger events such as Regional Qualifiers and Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series events.
