KONAMI DIGITAL ENTERTAINMENT ULTIMATE DUELIST SERIES INVITATIONAL COMES TO THE CITY OF ANGELS

 

El Segundo, Calif. (February 18, 2016) – Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. (KONAMI) is pleased to announce that the latest premier-level event for the official Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME (TCG) – the Ultimate Duelist Series Invitational – Winter 2016 is coming to Los Angeles February 21 and 22. The company detailed this exciting new tournament series for the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG in April 2015. The Ultimate Duelist Series (UDS) is a new addition to KONAMI’S Organized Play program, as it not only adds new tournament experiences to the variety already available, but it rewards Duelists for their participation in other Organized Play programs. The UDS truly gives Duelists an opportunity to play competitively year-round. 

The UDS Invitational is open only to qualified Duelists who have earned a minimum requirement of UDS Points. Duelists earn UDS Points by competing in UDS Qualifiers held at their local Official Tournament Stores (OTS) and at Public Event UDS Qualifiers held at YCS and WCQ tournaments. Duelists will also earn UDS Points at other Sanctioned Events such as Regionals, YCS, and OTS Championships. The two-day event  welcomes Duelists from all over the region to attend and compete for exclusive prizes, and spend the weekend Dueling, trading, and hanging out with hundreds of other Yu-Gi-Oh! fans.

The UDS Invitational – Winter 2016 is a Constructed event, which means each Duelist must bring his or her own Deck in order to compete. Decks must be constructed according to the latest Advanced Format guidelines, including the new Adjusted List which went into effect February 8. For more information, Duelists can visit http://www.yugioh-card.com/en/limited/index.html.

In addition to the UDS Invitational – Winter 2016, there are many other Public Event opportunities during the weekend including Dragon Duels, specifically for Duelists born in 2003 or later, and Regional Qualifier tournaments. Additionally, KONAMI will hold ATTACK OF THE GIANT CARD!!, Battle City, Structure Deck, Win-A-Mat,  Yu-Gi-Oh! Day, Public Event Playoff tournaments and the return of the KONAMI Bounty in which Duelists have a chance to Duel against employees of KONAMI! Competitive or casual, there is something for everyone at the UDS Invitational – Winter 2016 weekend.

Registration for UDS Invitational – Winter 2016 day one will begin Saturday, February 21 at 8:00 a.m. and continue until 9:45 a.m. Day two will begin at 9:00 a.m. on Sunday, February 22. Upon registering, each Duelist will receive one UDS Invitational Lanyard, and one UDS Invitational Pin (while supplies last).
