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

A: Starting in 2012, many conventions in Latin 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 Battle Pack: Epic Dawn Sealed Pack Tournament?

A:

  • The Duelists are seated in a random order at a table.

  • You may choose to keep these packs by dropping from the tournament at this point.
  • 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.

  • The Judge for the event gathers each card pool and randomly distributes them among the Duelists.
  • The Duelists verify what cards they receive with the checklist they receive.
  • The Duelists will then be given 20 minutes to look over their cards, build and sleeve their 20-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.

  • 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.
