Remote Duel Yu-Gi-Oh! Day July 3-4, 2021
Konami has just released the information and details for the upcoming Remote Duel Yu-Gi-Oh! Day event.
This Remote Duel Yu-Gi-Oh! Day event will be held on either Saturday, July 03, 2021 or Sunday, July 04, 2021 at select locations throughout North America. A list of locations and dates for the Remote Duel Yu-Gi-Oh! Day event can be found online at https://www.yugioh-card.com/en/events/ygoday/.
Remote Duel Yu-Gi-Oh! Day is a day for all to celebrate the Yu-Gi-Oh! brand, create excitement for our brand at our Official Tournament Stores (OTS), and to further distinguish OTS from non-OTS. Remote Duel Yu-Gi-Oh! Day is held simultaneously throughout North America. As we deal with the day-to-day restrictions of the pandemic, the next Remote Duel Yu-Gi-Oh! Day will be held remotely as a one-day Remote Duel event scheduled to occur on either Saturday, July 03, 2021 or Sunday, July 04, 2021.
Duelists will be able to participate in a Sanctioned Remote Duel tournament at all participating Official Tournament Stores (OTS), with exclusive prizes only available at an OTS.
Only KDE-US-approved OTS are permitted to host a Remote Duel Yu-Gi-Oh! Day event.
The registration fee for a Remote Duel Yu-Gi-Oh! Day is $10.00 USD in the United States ($10.00 CAD in Canada).
All Duelists entering the Remote Duel Yu-Gi-Oh! Day event must receive this amount in commensurate prizing. For example, it could be two (2) OTS Tournament Packs, or two (2) booster packs and one (1) Legendary Duelist Pack.
What you need to know during a Remote Duel Yu-Gi-Oh! Day tournament
The Remote Duel Yu-Gi-Oh! Day should be run using the Discord app. TCG Duelists will need a webcam, smartphone or tablet to display their field to their opponent. The camera needs to be flipped/upside-down, so it displays correctly, for the opponent.
You can find more details on Remote Duel on their website: https://www.yugioh-card.com/en/remoteduel/index.html.
Duelists should read the Remote Duel Best Practices guide, which also includes a list of cards Duelists cannot use during Remote Duel events. https://www.yugioh-card.com/en/downloads/remoteduel/EN_Remote_Duel_Best_Practice_Guide_V_1_2.pdf
Prizes for the Remote Duel Yu-Gi-Oh! Day tournament
In addition to the commensurate prizing each Duelist receives upon entering the tournament mentioned above, prize distribution will be as follows:
First Place Winner
After the conclusion of the last round of Swiss, will receive an exclusive Remote Duel Yu-Gi-Oh! Day Game Mat. The exclusive Game Mat for this Remote Duel Yu-Gi-Oh! Day will feature Arcana Triumph Joker and Joker’s Knight!
Top 8 Duelists
After the conclusion of the last round of Swiss, will each receive an exclusive Remote Duel Yu-Gi-Oh! Day Field Center Card. The exclusive Field Center Card for this Remote Duel Yu-Gi-Oh! Day will feature Arcana Triumph Joker!
A second Remote Duel Yu-Gi-Oh! Day Game Mat is to be randomly distributed as a participation prize amongst Duelists who participated in the event. This Game Mat cannot be awarded to a Duelist that has already won the Game Mat. A Duelist that has won a Field Center Card (2nd thru 8th place) may be eligible to win the second Game Mat.
At the OTS’ discretion and cost, the above prizes may be supplemented with additional Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG product or accessories.
In addition to the prizes listed above, the top two (2) Duelists after the final round of Swiss has concluded in your TCG Remote Duel Yu-Gi-Oh! Day, will earn an invite to participate in a Remote Duel Invitational Qualifier, where the top Duelists will get to play in a future Remote Duel Invitational!
The top two (2) Duelists after the final round of Swiss has concluded will be required to provide information so that an Invite Form can be completed on their behalf by the OTS hosting the Remote Duel Yu-Gi-Oh! Day. Failure to provide valid information may result in the forfeiture of the Invite into the Remote Duel Invitational Qualifier.
Format for the Remote Duel Yu-Gi-Oh! Day TCG tournament:
The current schedule of this Remote Duel Yu-Gi-Oh! Day event is a Tier 1 event, conducted as Constructed – Advanced Format, Swiss round events. The format details provided here supersede any tournament details found in other official KDE-US policy documents.
Number of Participants*
Number of Swiss Rounds
Playoff Top Cut
|4 – 8||3 Rounds of Swiss||
|9 – 16||4 Rounds of Swiss||
|17 – 32||5 Rounds of Swiss||
|33 – 64||6 Rounds of Swiss||
|65 – 128||7 Rounds of Swiss||

*The Number of Participants is based on how many total participants are enrolled in the tournament once Registration closes. All Duelists added to the event after registration closes should not affect the number of Swiss Rounds.
- Example: After registration closes, 63 Duelists have registered for the tournament. This means that the tournament will have 6 Rounds of Swiss, with no Playoff cut. Two Duelists register late, beginning the tournament with a Round 1 Match Loss. Even though this brings the attendance total to 65, only 6 Rounds of Swiss are played, with no Playoff cut.
Duelists participating in this Remote Duel Yu-Gi-Oh! Day may have to turn in a completed Deck List in order to participate. Please check with the OTS if they are requiring Deck Lists for their event and for additional information regarding the Deck List collection process.
Duelists can download the official KDE-US Deck List at KDE_DeckList.pdf. This is an editable PDF, so you will be able to type the card names in this form, which should help as your Deck List needs to be legible and complete – write the name of each card in full, and write down how many copies you have in your Deck.
- Make sure your name and CARD GAME ID are on your Deck List.
- Make sure your Deck List exactly matches your Deck.
There is a very helpful article on the strategy site that will help you fill out your Deck List properly. Just follow the link here: https://www.konami.com/yugioh/articles/?p=3534
Duelists are encouraged to complete their Deck List before registering for the Tournament by using the downloadable KDE-US Deck List and typing out all of the necessary information in the editable fields on the form.
- Make sure your name and CARD GAME ID are on your Deck List.
- Duelists may also use the Deck List “Save List” feature on the official Yu-Gi-Oh! App Neuron. To do so, please follow these instructions:
Neuron will not fill in all the tournament details, such as your full name, the date, and the name of the event. You will need to rename the file accordingly with the missing information.
The JPG is not an editable form.
Follow any instructions provided by the OTS regarding their Deck List collection process, if applicable.
Of course this is only a highlight of the details, for complete information, visit the Official Yu-Gi-Oh! Day webpage.
