Extravaganza Information

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

A: 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, who is then declared the winner.

Q: What are the rules for the Battle Pack: Epic Dawn Sealed Pack Tournament?

A:

  • The 8 Duelists are seated in a random order at a table.
  • Each Duelist is then given 5 sealed Battle Packs.
  • The Duelists then need to open all of the Battle Packs and separate the Xyz monsters from the rest of the cards.
  • 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.
  • Once steps 2 thru 4 are completed the Duelists then will play against their first round opponent in a best 2-out of-3 match.

Q: What are the rules for the Battle Pack: Epic Dawn Booster Draft Tournament?

A: The 8 Duelists are seated in a random order at a table.

  • Each Duelist will open two packs and count the cards face down to ensure there are 5 cards in each pack. If there are more or less than 5 cards in either pack, or there are any damaged cards; the Duelist must call over a Judge to exchange the defective pack for a new pack.
  • Each Duelist will then pick up the cards from those packs and select one card to keep, placing it face down in front of them; and then pass the remaining cards in the pack face down to the Duelist on their left.
  • Duelists should count out the cards face down after each pick to ensure that the appropriate number of cards remain in the packs.
  • The previous two steps continue until each Duelist has 10 cards in front of them.
  • Each Duelist will then open their next two packs and count the cards face down to ensure there are 5 cards in each pack. If there are more or less than 5 cards in either pack, the Duelist must call over a Judge to exchange the defective pack for a new pack.
  • Each Duelist will then pick up the cards from those packs and select one card to keep, placing it face down in front of them; and then pass the remaining cards in the pack face down to the Duelist on their right.
  • The previous two steps continue until each Duelist has 20 cards in front of them.
  • Each Duelist will then open their last two packs and count the cards face down to ensure there are 5 cards in each pack. If there are more or less than 5 cards in either pack, the Duelist must call over a Judge to exchange the defective pack for a new pack.
  • Each Duelist will then pick up the  cards from those packs and select one card to keep, placing it face down in front of them; and then pass the remaining cards in the pack face-down to the Duelist on their left.
  • Duelists should count out the cards face down after each pick to ensure that the appropriate number of cards remain in the packs.
