      All of your questions are being emailed direct to the organisers of this event (Carl Crook) direct, I have also emailed them a few times with the link advising them that players are waiting for answers etc - I can only apologise that they are not responding

    So according to the previous comments, the main event starts on Saturday at around 9-ish
    I have a few questions:

    #1: Can I pre-register on Saturday morning? If so, how early do I need to be there? If not, how can I pre-register? The soonest I can arrive to Birmingham after work is 9pm

    #2: When and on what day does the main event end? Is it a 1 day event ending at Saturday night? If it's until Sunday, by what time should the main event definitely be over?

    Thanks

  • Adam H.

    Can't wait!

    February 22, 2013

  • scott h.

    I probably sound a bit foolish but what is the difference between the normal yugioh tournament and the dragon one. Never been to a major tournament.

    1 · February 15, 2013

    • ADMIN

      Hi Scott, that's ok you don't sound foolish it's a reasonable question...the Dragon Duel is the Junior Championships for younger players, I think it was under 13 last year (they usually give a date the player needs to be born before to enter) - we will confirm further details once Konami's organisers let us know. Thanks, Michelle (UKTCGS)

      February 16, 2013

    • ADMIN

      btw if you have anyother questions that you are worried to ask in public view feel free to email [masked] and I will try to answer them or pass on to someone that can ;)

      February 16, 2013

  • ADMIN

    Carl/Rob, Please confirm that you are receiving comments posted on the listing for the Yugioh National weekend, thanks, Michelle (UKTCGS)
