Summary

Welcome to the first UK University event for Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel.

 

Come celebrate the release of the most hyped digital Yu-Gi-Oh! game ever with an inter-university tournament.

 

On Saturday, February 12th we will be hosting an online Bo1 swiss  tournament with the highest scoring player from each university competing in a Bo3 single elimination top cut afterwards.

 

This is an open deck list event, so you will need to submit your list on Battlefy before the event starts.

 

Prizes will be awarded to the winner of both the swiss rounds and the top-cut. Specific prizes are TBA.

 

All proceedings will be coordinated via Battlefy, and all communications will be distributed via our Discord.
