Yu-Gi-Oh! Extravaganza Information

Q: What happens at a Yu-Gi-Oh! Extravaganza event?

A: Starting in 2012, many conventions in North America will host a Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG Extravaganza.  At a Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG Extravaganza there is no large main tournament - instead, Duelists will enjoy a variety of official Konami Public Events, such as 16-Player Regional Qualifiers, Win-A-Mats, Sealed and Draft events, and Dragon Duels.  Duelists participating in the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG Extravaganza will have the chance to win an exclusive Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG Extravaganza Game Mat.

Seating space, badge requirements and event times will vary from convention to convention.  Keep watching  www.yugioh-card/com/en/events for additional conventions and dates, along with FAQs for each Extravaganza!

Q: What is a Swiss Round Tournament?

A: Players are paired off based on each player’s win/loss record. Players are not eliminated when they lose a match during Swiss tournaments – instead, they will continue to be paired against players with similar records for all remaining rounds of the event.

Q: What is a Single-Elimination Tournament?

A: Half of the tournament is eliminated after each round – the losing player is out of the tournament, while the winner goes on to the next round. This continues until only one player remains, which is then declared the winner.

Q: What are the rules for the Retro or Classic Draft?

A:

  1. The Duelists are seated in a random order at a table.
  2. Each Duelist is then given 10 sealed Battle Packs.
    • These Battle Packs will not be the ones you play with and belong to another player.
  3. You may choose to keep these packs by dropping from the tournament at this point.
  4. Duelists then record each card they open on the Battle Pack: Epic Dawn Checklist
    • If there are any discrepancies with the packs opened, Duelists must call a Judge for assistance.
  5. The Judge for the event gathers each card pool and randomly distributes them among the Duelists.
  6. The Duelists verify what cards they receive with the checklist they receive.
  7. The Duelists will then be given 20 minutes to look over their cards, build and sleeve their 40-card Main Deck (should they choose to sleeve their Deck, they must do so with tournament-legal sleeves).
    • Duelists must complete the Checklist listing which cards will be played in the Main Deck.
  8. Once steps 2 thru 6 are completed, the Duelists will then Duel against their first-round opponent in a best 2-out of-3 match.
