ANCIENT TREASURES UNCOVERED FOR THE Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME!
The Lost Art Promotion Begins February 2018
El Segundo, Calif. (January 10, 2018) – Are you ready to discover the lost art for some of the most powerful cards ever printed in the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME? Six special cards that have existed since the beginning of the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME are about to surface with new artwork through the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME The Lost Art Promotion, beginning February 2018 at participating KONAMI Official Tournament Stores.
These cards hark back to the original Yu-Gi-Oh! animated series and its pervading Egyptian theme, all used by Yugi in his quest to regain the lost memories of the Pharaoh and save the world from evil. Monster Reborn and all five pieces of the unstoppable Exodia have been available in Asia for nearly two decades with special card art that was never released outside of that continent. But thanks to The Lost Art Promotion at Official Tournament Stores, those cards will soon become available worldwide!
During The Lost Art Promotion, customers who spend a minimum of $30 (excluding sales tax) on Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG products at participating Official Tournament Stores will receive a free “lost art” promotional card with their purchase (while supplies last). The Lost Art Promotion will span six months, and a different promotional card will be available each month.
Beginning in February, participants in The Lost Art Promotion will receive a special copy of an Ultra Rare Monster Reborn, featuring the original 1999 artwork, never before released outside of Asia and pre-dating the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME’s release in North America! Over the following five months, Duelists will be able to get Exodia the Forbidden One, Left Arm of the Forbidden One, Right Arm of the Forbidden One, Left Leg of the Forbidden One, and Right Leg of the Forbidden One from the Lost Art Promotion, also with their 1999, never-seen-outside-of-Asia artwork.
Enthusiasts of the original Yu-Gi-Oh! animated series and the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME have waited for over fifteen years to see Monster Reborn and the five pieces of Exodia printed with their original card arts. Soon they’ll be able to get those special cards simply by purchasing Yu-Gi-Oh! products at a participating Official Tournament Store.
Duelists can now watch episodes of the exciting new Yu-Gi-Oh! animated series, Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS, available subtitled on Crunchyroll. The series will be simulcast with a new episode available one hour after it is broadcast in Japan, at 6:25AM EST (Simulcast currently available in the US and Latin America). Watch here: http://www.crunchyroll.com/yu-gi-oh-vrains!
Additionally, Duelists can watch a new episode of Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V every Sunday on Nicktoons - check local listings for times. In addition, all-new Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL episodes every Tuesday as well as all of classic Yu-Gi-Oh!, Yu-Gi-Oh! GX, and Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s can be seen on www.yugioh.com in the United States.

Q: How are the promotional cards being given out at the stores?
A: Participating OTS’ will give customers the promotional card for that month for each $30.00 in Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG product spent at that participating location. Qualifying purchases must be made in the store.
Q: Do I have to purchase at least $30.00 worth of Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG product at once, or can it be across multiple transactions in the same month?
A: It is up to the OTS if they will give customers a promotional card if the customer spends at least $30.00 in Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG product but over multiple transactions in a single month. It should be the responsibility of the customer to provide proof of purchase of each transaction. Remember that stores will have a limited supply of promotional cards per month.
Q: I purchased $29.00 worth of Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG product but with the added sales tax the total purchase went over the $30.00 minimum spend. Is this enough to get a promotional card?
A: Sales tax is excluded from the purchase total, so in this example the customer does not receive a promotional card.
Q: I purchased $30.00 worth of Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG product in March, but I really wanted to get Monster Reborn, which is the February promotional card. Can I still get this?
A: If the participating OTS still has promotional cards from prior months available, it is up to them to honor this request from the customer. Keep in mind that participating OTS will have a limited supply of each month’s promotional card.
Q: I just spent over $30.00 buying a couple of single cards from my local store, and they’re officially participating in The Lost Art Promotion, but they didn’t give me a promotional card.
A: Qualifying purchases for this promotion only apply to sealed Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG product, like booster packs, display cases, and polybagged product like Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG accessories. Single cards and loose product do not qualify as purchases for this promotion, even if the total amount exceeds $30.00.
Q: What if my local store has an online website that I can purchase cards from, will I still get a promotional card?
A: Qualifying purchases of $30.00 must be made at a participating OTS physical location; online purchases do not qualify.
Q: What happens if my store is out of promotional cards in any given month?
A: Promotional cards for each participating OTS are only available while supplies last.
Q: How many promotional cards can I get in a single month? If I purchase $90.00 worth of sealed Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG product, do I get three promotional cards?
A: It is up to the OTS to place a limit to the number of promotional cards a customer can receive in a month, if they feel that is necessary. Stores will have a limited supply of promotional cards per month, so customers should check with the OTS if they have placed or plan to place any limits on the number of promotional cards that can be redeemed.
