Default How do sneak peeks work?

I sadly won't be attending any sneaks because my dad is against yugioh. I have to hide my cards. I was just wondering how they work though. Entry fee? Do all locals have them? What if I don't attend? Could I just have a friend enter. Do you get tengu upon entry or do you have to do something to get it?

Generally it goes:

You pay $20. They hand you 5 packs of the set and a promo (in this case Reborn Tengu).

You can then make a sealed deck of 20 from these packs and play in the sealed tournament, if your store holds it.

I personally just enter 3-4 times at once, open all the cards, trade, and then leave. Whether or not you can do this varies from location to location, however.

"All locals" is pretty broad. Check the list of participating stores on yugioh-card.com to see if yours is included.

Sure, you can pay a friend to go for you....why would the store care? As long as he's not playing in the tournament under your name or anything.

ok.
check the konami website for participating sneak peeks.
you can probably get a friend to enter for you(pick one that you trust and won't use the max entries by himself)
you get tengu for paying the 20 entry price. based on first come, first serve.
some locals may not allow for more than one entry per person.

So I could ask a friend (whom I gave 20 dollars) to get the promo and don't open any packs? You're not forced to open them are you? You can just leave right? And what dates are the next sneak held. Are they held on same day as local tourneys?

Your friend can take the packs and the promo, and just leave.

If your friend plays yugioh and wants to get some for himself, you should check up on store policy as some stores don't let you enter more than once.

Ok yeah I don't think re entry is allowed. I also doubt he will be interested as he has a conpleted deck and has no other focus.

Sneak Peaks, in a nutshell:

1. Find underpants
2. steel underpants
3. ...
4. Profit


wait, that's the wrong business model. One second *shifts through a filing cabinet* here we go, Sneak Peaks.

Sneak Peaks, in a nutshell:

1. Find a sneak peak
2. Go to the sneak peak location
3. Enter the sneak peak (entry fee $20)
4. chill, talk to people, trade, duel, whatever
5. When the sneak peak starts, they will seat you.
6. Once everyone is seated, they will pass out sealed packs and promo cards.
7. Make a deck from your sealed pack cards and have fun.

for a list of sneak peaks in your area, check www.yugioh-card.com

that website also has a FAQ and other useful info

Stores are supposed to do this:

Let each player enter once. It costs $20 in the US and $25 in Canada.

Give 5 packs and a promo to each player, while supplies last.

Players should then engage in open play, rather than participate in a tournament with the packs.

The store will have a drawing for the prize mats (2 mats per 16 players). Mats should be awarded to players who participated in open play.

I think it's wrong in certain way. It HAS to be 5 packs.
