World Championship Qualifiers – Nationals is your chance to be crowned the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME National Champion!  Duelists within each eligible Latin American country compete to become their nation’s Champion and also compete to represent their nation at the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG 2018 World Championship Qualifiers!  Top finishers from the WCQ – Nationals will be invited to either the Central or South American WCQ, based on their country of residence.

Here you’ll find information about participating in these exciting events!  Information will be added as it becomes available, so please check back frequently for the latest updates.

All WCQ – Nationals will be Open Nationals, meaning that even if you have not yet earned an invite, you can still participate.  If you have already earned an invite, the entry fee is waived.  You will not receive the participation packs but you will have the opportunity to become the 2018 Champion of that Nation.  If you have yet to earn an invite, the entry fee is the equivalent of $15.00 USD, and you will receive the equivalent in Flames of Destruction booster packs.  You must be a resident of that country in order to participate in the WCQ – National, if one is being held in your country.  If your country does not have a WCQ – National, you are welcome to participate in any of the Nationals in Latin America or the Regional Qualifiers in the United States in order to earn your invite to the 2018 Central American (CA) or South American (SA) WCQ. 2018 WCQ - Nationals will take place throughout Latin America during the dates of May 5th – May 20th.

This year, the WCQ – Nationals have been broken down into three groups (A, B and C); each group has its own prize pool.  Groups are assigned based on the previous year’s WCQ – National attendance.  Help make your country obtain a Group A classification in 2019 by participating this year! In order to reach a higher classification your WCQ – National must have a minimum of the following attendance:

Group A – 301 players
Group B – 151 players
Group C – 65 players

Congratulations to the following countries that moved up to a higher group this year!

Chile is now in Group A
Colombia is now in Group B
Ecuador is now in Group B

In addition to all the great prizes that will be awarded, we are happy to announce that for 2018, all Nationals will have an exclusive design for the Top Cut Game Mat awarded to the best players of each country! In addition to the Top Cut Game Mat all Group A National participants will receive a WCQ – National mousepad with the same design and players who pre register for the tournament will also receive one of the Yu-Gi-Oh! branded Attribute Dice, randomly in a blind bag!

But that’s not all – the top-ranked finishers of each National will earn valuable World Qualifying Points that may earn them a spot in the 2018 Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME World Championship in Japan.  For more information on World Qualifying Points please visit:
