With Gamescom less than a week away, Konami has detailed what you can expect from its dedicated Yu-Gi-Oh! booth this year. Activities range from Trading Card Game duels, to games of its popular free-to-play Duel Links game, catering for players of all levels. Demonstrators will even be around to help show new players the ropes.
“For experienced duelists, KONAMI is encouraging people to bring their decks and compete with other attendees in their event tournament or Free2Play zone. If players are particularly confident and wish to put their skills to the test, #DueltheMaster will be a chance for them to challenge a Yu-Gi-Oh! champion from Wednesday 22nd to Saturday 25th.”
Here is the (rather substantial) list of activities available at the Yu-Gi-Oh! booth in hall 5.2/E039:
