What is the Format for YCS Sydney?

Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series Sydney will be an Advanced Constructed format event, using the current Forbidden & Limited List.

The Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series will consist of a number of Swiss-style rounds, followed by one or more top cuts, as follows:

  • Up to 512 Duelists: 6 rounds of Swiss on Saturday, 3 rounds of Swiss on Sunday (open to Top 64 AND everyone with 12 points or more), then Top 16 Single-Elimination
  • 513 to 1024 Duelists: 7 rounds of Swiss on Saturday, 3 rounds of Swiss on Sunday (open to Top 128 AND everyone with 15 points or more), then Top 32 Single-Elimination
  • 1025 or more Duelists: 8 rounds of Swiss on Saturday, 3 rounds of Swiss on Sunday (open to Top 256 AND everyone with 18 points or more), then Top 32 Single-Elimination


Preparing for the event:

Be prepared to present your COSSY ID number along with your name at registration. If you don't have a COSSY ID number, you can receive one at registration.

You should bring any tournament supplies you will need; paper and pen to track Life Points, dice or counters if you are using cards which require them, extra sleeves to replace any that become damaged, and so forth.

Players participating in these events are expected to be familiar with KONAMI's tournament policies. These can be found in the "Gameplay" section of this website.

Please note that you will have to submit a Decklist when you register for the event! You can only register with a complete Decklist. You will fill this out by listing all of the cards included in the Deck you want to use.  You can get a Deck List form at the registration area, or you can download it here.



Early registration on Friday:

You can – and you should! – register between 14:00 and 19:00 at:-

Good Games Burwood
Level 1, 195a Burwood Rd.
Burwood,
NSW 2134

Once you are registered, you are officially entered into the tournament and will not need to register again on Saturday. Save yourself a few hours of sleep on Saturday morning and take advantage of early registration! Please note that you will have to submit a Decklist when you register for the event.

If sleeping in isn’t reason enough for you to register on Friday, maybe this is: YCS Sydney will award an exclusive promotional item to those who take advantage of Friday’s early registration! (while supplies last)

Information for parents:

You are not required to stay on site, but we strongly recommend that you do, especially if your children are young or this is their first event. Please know that the tournament staff cannot be responsible for looking after your children, or their possessions. Always make sure your child has a way to contact you, and is provided with any necessities such as food, drink, or extra money if you do not wish to remain in the tournament area.

When your child is preparing for the event, encourage him or her to leave any bulky or expensive possessions at home. Electronics and large collections of cards are hard to keep track of during a big tournament – your child will have a much easier day without having to worry about these kinds of items.

Trading cards is a big attraction at large tournaments, but if you are concerned about your child trading away valuable cards, talk to him or her before the event and set some guidelines. You can always have your child check with you before making a trade.
