(KONAMI), with open arms. YCS Philadelphia is expected to draw hundreds of Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME (TCG) players from across Pennsylvania and from up and down the Eastern Seaboard May 17th - 18th, 2014.

Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG Duelists, trying to qualify for the North American World Championship Qualifier in July, get to test their Decks, skills and strategies as they compete head-to-head against some of the best players in the country during the course of the weekend. From the First Round of the Main Event on Saturday morning to the Final Round on Sunday, every Duelist will be playing their hardest, hoping that their game is the winning one to take them to the YCS Champion's podium.

Duelists should make time to pre-register for the YCS Philadelphia Main Event from 3:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. on May 16th as those players that pre-register and submit a Deck list will receive an event-exclusive YCS Token Card!
