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

A: Many conventions in North America can 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 events, and ATTACK OF THE GIANT CARD!!.  Duelists participating in the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG Extravaganza will have the chance to win an exclusive Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG Extravaganza Game Mat.  Each Extravaganza will offer different tournaments, so please make sure to check each Extravaganza schedule before attending.

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: Can I get a CARD GAME ID number (previously referred to as COSSY ID) at the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG Extravaganza, or will I need to have one before I attend the event?

A: If you previously had a COSSY ID, that same number will carry over as your CARD GAME ID. You will still need to register online at https://cardgame-network.konami.net/.

If you do not remember your previous 10-digit ID, a registration staff member on-site should be able to assist in finding your correct ID. Duelists should avoid acquiring new CARD GAME IDs if the previous ID can be found.

If you do not have a CARD GAME ID number, you can get one yourself by registering online at https://cardgame-network.konami.net/.

Q:   What if I don’t know how to play the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG?

A: We will be holding demos for new players at our booth throughout Origins Game Fair.  Learn how to play, then take part in one of the causal Demo Deck Tournaments afterwards!  Participation is free for both demos and Demo Deck Tournaments!

Q: What happens if I am not done with my Match after 40 minutes? (Swiss Rounds – Tier 1 Events and Single-Elimination)

A: During Single-Elimination rounds, if Duelists have not completed their matches during their allotted time limit, proceed to End of Match procedures. Please follow these instructions when proceeding to End of Match procedures during the Single-Elimination portion of the tournament:

  • Continue until the end of the current turn.
  • If the Duel did not end at the end of the turn, go to “Extra Turns.”
    • Extra Turns = Conduct (3) additional turns starting from the opponent’s turn.
  • If a win condition (a Duelist is reduced to 0 Life Points or an instant win condition such as the effect of Exodia the Forbidden One or Final Countdown) occurs within these (3) turns, the Duel ends as normal.
  • If a win condition does NOT occur within these (3) turns, the Duelist who has higher Life Points after the “Extra Turns” wins.
  • If both Duelists’ Life Points are the same after the “Extra Turns” are completed, then play will continue on a turn-by-turn basis, with the Duelist with the most Life Points at the end of a turn being declared the winner of that Game.
    • Life Points are checked after the turn has completed but before the opponent’s turn begins.
    • If a Duelist’s Life Points reach 0 or if a win condition occurs during the turn, normal game play rules apply.
  • Once the winner has been determined for the current Duel, the Match winner is determined.
    • If a Duelist has more wins than his or her opponent, that Duelist wins the Match.
    • If both Duelists have the same number of Duel wins, or if time is called in between Games of a Match, they will begin a new Duel with specific guidelines.
      • Neither Duelist may use his or her Side Deck.
      • Duelists must use a random method (die roll, coin flip, etc.) to determine who will go first.
      • The Duel will continue for a total of (4) turns, two turns for each Duelist, unless a Duelist manages to win the Duel before the (4) turns are up.
      • Once the four turns are completed, Life Point totals are compared and the Duelist with the highest Life Point total wins the Match.
      • If both Duelists’ Life Points are the same after the (4) turns are completed, then play will continue on a turn-by-turn basis, with the Duelist with the most Life Points at the end of a turn being declared the winner of that Game. Please use the same criteria listed above (Step 5).

Draws cannot occur during Single-Elimination. There must always be a winner.

All events at the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG Extravaganza will use this End of Match Procedure.

Q: How do I earn Ultimate Duelist Series (UDS) Points at the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG Extravaganza Origins Game Fair?

A: UDS Points are awarded based on final standings at select events at the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG Extravaganza Origins Game Fair.

For more information about UDS Points and the Ultimate Duelist Series, visit: http://www.yugioh-card.com/en/ultimateduelist/index.html.

Q: How do I earn World Qualifying Points at the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG Extravaganza Origins Game Fair?

Duelists can earn World Qualifying Points at any event that awards an invite to the World Championship Qualifier; such as Regional Qualifiers, Dragon Duels, OTS Championships, Nationals in Latin America, and the Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series.

Players that make the Top Cut at the 2017 Central American WCQ in Mexico City, Mexico, the 2017 South American WCQ in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and the 2017 North American WCQ in Chicago, IL will also earn World Qualifying Points.

The total number of invites awarded at an event will determine how many World Qualifying Points can be earned. For example, at a Regional Qualifier that awards 32 WCQ invites, the Duelist who comes in 1st place will earn 32 points, the 2nd place Duelist will earn 31 points, and so on, down to the 32nd place Duelist who will earn 1 point.

World Qualifying Points will be awarded retroactively for any event that qualified Duelists for their 2017 WCQ.

(These points are separate from any other points earned to qualify for other KONAMI Organized Play events, i.e. Ultimate Duelist Series points used to qualify Duelists for the UDS Invitational.)

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, who is then declared the winner.

Q: What are the rules for the Starter Deck Tournament?

A:

  • The eight (8) Duelists are seated across from their first round opponent.
  • Each Duelist is then given one (1) sealed Starter Deck.
  • The Duelists will then be given 10 minutes to look over their cards and sleeve their main Deck and Extra Deck, should they choose to do so, with tournament-legal sleeves.
  • Once steps 2 and 3 are completed the Duelists then will play against their first round opponent in a best 2-out of-3 match.
