Posted Thursday, 12/18/2014 by PPNSteve

Yu-Gi-Oh! CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES COMES TO CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER

Premier-Level Tournament Expects Players from All Across the U.S.

El Segundo, CA - December 18, 2015 - The welcoming southern charm of South Carolina awaits Duelists from all corners of the globe as they arrive at the Yu-Gi-Oh! CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES (YCS) Charleston event, presented by Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. (KONAMI). The YCS is a traveling, premier-level Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME (TCG) competitive tournament, a game made famous by the Yu-Gi-Oh! TV animated series.Yu-Gi-Oh! CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES (YCS)

On January 31st and February 1st, Duelists young and old, novice and veterans alike, will compete for a bounty of exciting prizes. The first place winner will receive an Ultra Rare version of the latest most sought-after prize card: Ascension Sky Dragon - one of the rarest Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG cards in existence!

Hoping to be a part of Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG history, Duelists will enter the Charleston Area Convention Center on Saturday morning believing they have the precise combination of luck and strategy for a shot at glory and prizes. Duelists will put their practice and Deck-building skills up against some of the best players the game has to offer for the chance to advance to the Final Round on Sunday and the opportunity to Duel for the title of YCS Champion.

With the newest products, the Secrets of Eternity booster set and the HERO Strike Structure Deck both to be released prior to the event, YCS Charleston will be an incubator of sorts for live game-testing as Duelists unveil brand new strategies and Decks. Duelists will need to devote extra attention to see how the inclusion of the new cards from these products impacts the YCS standings!

YCS Charleston will also be the second YCS to feature Duelists who have qualified for VIP treatment via the VIP Qualifier tournaments only available at Top Performing Official Tournament Stores (OTS). VIP Duelists will receive free entry to the YCS, reserved seating, additional match coverage, and a two-round bye in the Main Event.

Duelists should contact their local OTS leading up to YCS Charleston to see if they will be holding a VIP Qualifier tournament or check the official Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG web site for store locations http://www.yugioh-card.com/en/events/specialevents/VIP_tournament-locations.html

The top four finishers in the Dragon Duel events will receive winners' medals, a Dragon Duel T-Shirt, and a 2015 Regional Game Mat. Top-ranked finishers will also win an invitation to the 2015 Dragon Duel World Championship Qualifier.

The two victors from the Saturday and Sunday tournaments will face off in a best 2 out of 3 match using their own pre-constructed Decks in the Advanced Constructed format, to determine the weekendís overall winner and a chance at the ultimate prize: to hoist the Dragon Duel Champion's trophy and the coveted title of YCS Dragon Duel Champion!

Additionally, the top ranked Duelists will win a Top Cut Game Mat for this event that matches the artwork of the Ascension Sky Dragon card.
