It’s Time to Duel around the world! Konami and the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG will be celebrating the 200th Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series (YCS) simultaneously in The Netherlands, Mexico, and the United States on September 22nd & 23rd.
In Europe, Duelists will head to The Netherlands, as the city of Utrecht will kick off the festivities. A few hours later, Duelists from the Americas will compete in Columbus, Ohio (United States) and Mexico City (Mexico) as their respective 200th YCS tournaments kick off.
Konami will have special prizes and activities on offer at all 3 locations, and today we are revealing the first of those, the Game Mats! A number unique Game Mats will be exclusively available at these tournaments, read on to find out how you can take some home!
First up is the 200th Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series Participation Game Mat. This will be available to every Duelist who registers for the main event at each location (while supplies last). Gold Sarcophagus takes centre stage, surrounded by the history of the Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series, marking every date and city we have visited so far.
A mighty being is depicted on this Game Mat, but you won’t find out who that is until…
Say hello to Chaos Emperor, the Dragon of Armageddon, your new Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series Prize Card! Chaos Emperor Dragon – Envoy of the End was a widely-feared adversary who marked its appearance to the field with complete destruction. From the moment this monster hit the field the fates of Duels were sealed. Such power has been Forbidden for an eternity but now this Dragon is back in a terrifying new form.
You can pay 1000 LP, then target 1 of your banished Dragon monsters; destroy this card, and if you do, add that monster to your hand. You can only use this effect of “Chaos Emperor, the Dragon of Armageddon” once per turn.
Cannot be Normal Summoned/Set. Must be Special Summoned (from your hand or Extra Deck) by banishing 1 LIGHT and 1 DARK monster from your GY. You can only Special Summon “Chaos Emperor, the Dragon of Armageddon” once per turn this way. Once per turn: You can pay half your LP; send as many cards you control as possible to the GY, except from the Extra Monster Zone, and if you do, send cards your opponent controls to the GY, up to the number of your cards sent to the GY, then, inflict 300 damage to your opponent for each card sent to their GY by this card’s effect. If this face-up Special Summoned card leaves the field, return it to the bottom of the Deck.
Chaos Emperor, the Dragon of Armageddon will be the Prize Card at Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series events for the upcoming year, awarded to top 3 Duelists of the main event(s) and the winner of each Public Events playoff.
To celebrate its debut however, the top eight Duelists at each 200th Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series event will win a copy of Chaos Emperor, the Dragon of Armageddon! The Ultra Rare version is exclusively awarded to 1st Place at each YCS, with all other winners receiving the Super Rare version.
