The run-up to YCS #100. | The Irish Duelist

The run-up to YCS #100.


Since the dawn of the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG a decade ago we've seen major events take place all over the world, with thousands of Duelists competing for fame and glory. The highlight of the Dueling season for many is when they attend a Championship-level event, and we're now nearing the hundred mark.

While YCS Kansas was taking place an announcement was made outlining the dates and locations of the next few events, all leading up the the 100th Championship Series event in Long Beach California.

Get ready to Duel, because the next 5 YCS tournaments have been revealed! Check out the YCS schedule, all the way through to the 100th YCS!

  • United Kingdom: December 17th and 18th

  • Atlanta, GA: February 18th and 19th
  • Germany: February 25th and 26th

The 75th event was held in New Jersey in April 2010, and every single participant got a commemorative 75th YCS Game Mat. What sorts of celebratory shwag awaits in Long Beach? Stay tuned to http://www.yugioh-card.com/en/events/ for news on this and all upcoming events!

Duelists are pumped to practice their skills for these 5 YCS tournaments on the horizon, but for now all attention is turned to YCS Kansas City!

I was fortunate enough to attend the 75th event which took place at Edison, New Jersey and it was an amazing experience (have a read of it here). I'm sure the 100th will have some incredible stuff lined up and if you're able to attend I highly recommend doing so.

As for the other events YCS Brighton is next, and less than 4 weeks away. I'll be there helping Konami Europe out with coverage again, so if you're at the event feel free to say hello.

As for YCS Germany, the location isn't known yet but as soon as it is I'll blog about it to keep you all in the loop.
