Pegasus Challenge


Attention Duelists & Official Tournament Stores!

As of April 15, 2011, in order to make the Pegasus Challenge even more exciting for Duelists, we are adding a unique prize to the Pegasus Challenge!

Each week, the winner of the Pegasus Challenge will receive an exclusive Pegasus Challenge single-card binder!

The only way to receive this prize is by participating in the Pegasus Challenge, so be sure to tell your store you want to play in this event, and you can find a list of participating stores below.

If you’re a Duelist: Be sure and check in with your local store each week, so that you know what kind of Deck to bring for the latest Pegasus Challenge!

If you’re an Official Tournament Store: You can now choose which Pegasus Challenge to run every week. Just pick any challenge from the list below. You can repeat the Challenges, skip the ones you don’t want to use, or even run the same Challenge every week, if you want. The choice is up to you, so do whatever makes your local Duelists happy!

(If you want Konami to post your weekly challenge on our web site, please let us know which event you’re running each week! Stores can contact us at us-opsupport@konami.com.)
