Welcome to TEAM YCS Las Vegas!

February 18th, 2023

Almost three years ago to the day, Las Vegas hosted the last TEAM YCS. In the end, the team of Dominic Couch, Stephen Silverman, and Scott Page emerged victorious as YCS Champions! It’s been a long wait to return to the city that never sleeps – it’s time to crown some new YCS Champions!

The Las Vegas Convention Center – soon to be host of three new YCS Champions

We’re hot off the heels of another TEAM YCS last weekend in Mexico City, but make no mistake – this event is going to stand out. TEAM YCS Mexico City was the first event to use cards from Photon Hypernova, and Duelists will have another week of experience with the new cards.

Even bigger is the Forbidden & Limited List just taking effect this week, which had massive changes that will surely shake up the meta. Tearlaments, Sprights, and Floowandereeze all saw changes from the F&L List, but they’re still Decks to watch out for. Besides those, there’s a lot of hype around Kashtira, Labrynth, Branded, Runick, Dark World, and more.

Round 1 is about to kick off, with 385 teams! It’s time to Duel!

Welcome To YCS Pasadena!

November 5th, 2022

California is Yu-Gi-Oh! country, and today, Championship Dueling returns to the Golden State!

In 2018 an impressive 1411 Duelists gathered here to compete for their shot at Championship gold, in the first-ever Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series in Pasadena. It was a hotly competitive event, but in the end Shunping Xu soared over the field and claimed victory with Sky Strikers. One year later in 2019, even more Duelists came to Pasadena to test their mettle: 1607 competitors took their shot at the title, and Kobe Short came out on top with another win for Sky Strikers.

Welcome To YCS Niagara Falls!

September 10th, 2022

Canada! Welcome back, to the Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series!

It’s been three long years since Duelists last gathered here, at the Niagara Falls Convention Center, to compete for Prize Cards, respect, and the title of Champion. That weekend we saw a Top 4 that featured Salamangreat, Sky Striker, and Lunalight Orcust, three of the biggest Decks of the 2018-2019 season, an era some Duelists now fondly call the “Eternal Format”. But in the end, none of those standby strategies took home title gold: instead, we’d see David Mendoza one-punch his ticket straight to the winner’s circle, piloting a deadly and explosive build of Danger Gren Maju!
