YCS Mexico

The new season is upon us, meaning once again – it’s time to Duel! Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. (KONAMI)
launches the new Central American Dueling season for its premier level
Yu-Gi-Oh! CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES (YCS) in the capital of Mexico – Mexico City
on September 17-18. This ultra-competitive weekend-long tournament gives
hundreds of Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME (TCG) Duelists throughout Mexico and
Central America their first chance of the season to show off their
Deck-building skills and strategies, and to compete with their peers. The
Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG is a card game involving strategy and skill made famous by the
Yu-Gi-Oh! manga and animated TV series.

Unveiling for the first time in Latin America at YCS Mexico City, Duelists
will be competing for a brand-new exclusive YCS prize card for the weekend’s
top finishers – Number 93: Utopia Kaiser. Different from the regular cards
found in booster packs and other Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG products, Number 93: Utopia
Kaiser can only be obtained by finishing in the top three spots at a Main
Event of a YCS, or by winning a special Public Events playoff tournament.
This makes Number 93: Utopia Kaiser highly coveted by the throngs of
Duelists around the world that will participate in the high-level
competitive YCS events during the course of the season.

Additionally, the top-ranked Duelists will win a brand-new YCS Top Cut Game
Mat for this event featuring artwork of the new prize card.

Pre-registration for YCS Mexico City will run from 3 p.m. – 7 p.m. on
Friday, September 16th and registration will continue promptly at 8 a.m. on
Saturday, September 17th. Round One will start at 10 a.m. Upon registering,
Duelists will receive five of the recently released The Dark Illusion
booster packs for participating in KONAMI’s YCS Mexico City. Players will
use their constructed Decks all the way to the final match. The top-ranked
YCS finishers will earn invitations to participate in their 2017 World
Championship Qualifier. Duelists can find the answers to many of their

Accompanying the Main Event, KONAMI will also be conducting Dragon Duels
(for Duelists born in 2004 or later). The Dragon Duel tournaments on both
Saturday and Sunday will feature constructed Deck Dueling. The top four
finishers in the Dragon Duel events will receive a Dragon Duel Medal, a
Regional Deck Box, and a 2017 Regional Game Mat. Top-ranked finishers will
also earn an invitation to their 2017 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 weekend’s overall winner and a chance
at the ultimate prize: to hoist the Dragon Duel Champion’s trophy and the
coveted title of YCS Mexico City Dragon Duel Champion! In addition, the
Dragon Duel Champion will also receive a Super Rare set of the Darklord YCS
prize cards. Entry to the Dragon Duel tournaments is free to qualified

Making its YCS debut, KONAMI will launch the OTS Tournament Series, which is
designed specifically for OTS (Official Tournament Store) teams. OTS teams

their local OTS. The winning team of the OTS Tournament Series will be

member, along with a plaque presented to their OTS in commemoration of their
team’s victory! 2nd place will take home 9 booster packs and a 4 X 4 Super
Rare uncut sheet with 3rd place taking home 6 booster packs and a 4 X 4
Super Rare uncut sheet for each team member.
