Demonstrations will give you a chance to take a look at the Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game. Each demo will teach the basics of how the game is played and give you a chance to see the great art work on the cards.
Everyone receiving a demo will be given a Konami goody bag containing:

- A Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game Booster
- Other goodies depending on availability.
Challenge the Master
One of our staff will Challenge all players interested a duel to see who is the best. This is about the pride of demonstrating you have the skill to beat the master. They will also get a prize of a Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG tin.
Sealed Pack Play Training
Every 15mins a member of staff will take up to 8 players through the concepts of sealed pack play including card selection, deck building etc. Every player who goes through the whole training session will get a free entry voucher to a sealed pack tournament in the tournament hall.
All the latest releases will be on sale on the stand.
In addition to the stand we also have 64 seats in the tournament room that are available for our exclusive use all weekend and are open from 9am till midnight.
This space will allow us the opportunity to run tournament and league activity including two special tournaments. On Saturday we will have the last WCQ Regional in the UK starting at 10am and on Sunday we will have the UK Games Expo Championship starting at 10am. This new event will award the winner flights and hotel to any European YCS.
All events will have prizes for taking part as well as final standings and will be the last expansion and Astral Packs.
We will also have sealed pack events for players who have taken sealed pack training, so they can try out there new skills for free and you get to take home the cards.
