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 2016 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 2016 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 Shining Victories booster packs.  You must be a resident of that country in order to participate in the WCQ – National.  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 2016 Central American (CA) or South American (SA) WCQ. 2016 WCQ - Nationals will take place throughout Latin America during the dates of May 7th – May 21st.

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 2017 by participating this year!

In addition to all the great prizes that will be awarded, we are happy to announce that for 2016, all Nationals will have an exclusive design for the Top Cut game mat awarded to the best players of each country!
