Yu-Gi-Oh Tactical Evolution Sneak Preview
What is a Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME Sneak Preview?
Every three months, a new Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG booster pack set is released with brand-new cards to collect and add to your Deck, making it different, better, and more fun!
A Sneak Preview is the first chance anywhere to get these new cards. Each Duelist gets a few packs from the new set, then builds a new Deck using only those cards. Everybody plays against other Duelists who are also using only these new cards. Since the cards are new to everyone, it's a friendly and fun environment to play in. Afterward, the cards are theirs to keep.
What can I do as a parent?
Some kids are nervous about finding opponents to play with. You can encourage your kids to ask others to Duel, or ask a staff volunteer for help finding opponents. After your child plays against five opponents, they'll get an additional new booster pack just for playing, no matter how many games were won or lost. This is called "Open Dueling."
At the event there will also be structured tournaments, known as "Flights." These are much more competitive, and will take more time than Open Dueling, although there are greater prizes available for the winners. If your child is new to playing or not ready for a competitive environment, we suggest you point them to Open Dueling for a more relaxed atmosphere.
