Preparing for this event


Be prepared to present your COSSY ID number along with your name at registration. If you don’t have a COSSY ID number, you can receive one at registration.

You should bring any tournament supplies you will need: paper and pen to track Life Points, dice or counters if you are using cards which require them, extra sleeves to replace any that become damaged, and so forth. Players participating in these events are expected to be familiar with KONAMI’s tournament policies. These can be found in the “Gameplay” section of this website.

Please note that you will have to submit a Decklist when you register for the event! You can only register with a complete Decklist. You will fill this out by listing all of the cards included in the Deck you want to use.  You can get a Deck List form at the registration area, or you can download it here.


Early registration on Friday


You can – and you should! – register at the venue on Friday (16:00 - 21:00) already. Once you are registered, you are officially entered into the tournament and will not need to register again on Saturday. Save yourself a few hours of sleep on Saturday morning, and take advantage of early registration! Please note that you will have to submit a Decklist when you register for the event.
If sleeping in isn’t reason enough for you to register on Friday, maybe this is: All YCS events in 2013 will award an exclusive promotional item to those who take advantage of Friday’s early registration! (while supplies last)

 

Pre-registration online


You can also pre-register online to speed up your registration process. Please note that even if you preregistered online, you will still register on-site either Friday or Saturday morning. Online pre-registration means that you’ll only need to show your COSSY ID at registration, instead of providing your full information then.


Coverage


There will be round-by-round online coverage of this event, including feature matches, a photo gallery, deck analysis and more – even if you’re unable to make it to the event, you can still be part of the action as the coverage page is updated with  live content from the tournament site.

Look for coverage at http://tcg.konami-europe.net/coverage/, and follow the event as it progresses.


Trials


A series of “YCS Trial” events will be held across France. The winner of such a Trial receives free entry for the YCS main event. These events are a great way to prepare yourself for the YCS, and to playtest your Deck against other Duelists!
