$20 Entry, Preregistration will open 10/5/17, 48 spots available. Events all weekend! Two formats are available, both detailed below! -Open Dueling An Open Dueling event means that there are no appointed pairings, no records of Wins and Losses maintained, and no time limit given on any given match. Players match up against others in the event at their own discretion. Players should play a Match against 5 different opponents using the Deck built for the Sneak Peek. A player who enters a Sneak Peek event but does not participate in any Matches, is not eligible to win one of the Game Mats as a door prize. Once a player has their Deck built, they can Duel as much as they want against the other players in the Sneak Peek. These Duels are for fun and have no bearing on prize distribution. OTS and staff should assist Duelists that may have difficulties finding other Duelists to Duel against. -Open Dueling - Sealed Format Details Open Dueling utilizes Sealed Format in regards to Deck construction. In Sealed format events, participants use the 5 Booster Packs and the Promo Card they received at Registration and build a Deck to play with. The Deck must meet the following requirements: A Minimum of 20 cards must be used for the Main Deck. Pendulum Monsters must go in the Main Deck. All cards not used in the Main Deck are automatically considered to be a part of the Side Deck. The usual 0 – 15 card Side Deck rule does not apply. All Synchro Monsters, Fusion Monsters, and Xyz Monsters must go in the Extra Deck. Players start out each game with 8,000 Life Points. Players play a Best 2-out-of-3 Match against an opponent to declare a winner. Unlike Constructed Decks, Sealed Decks have no restrictions on the number of any specific card in the Deck. A player may include as many copies of any card he or she likes, even more than three, provided all copies of those cards were obtained only from the product given for Deckbuilding in that event. In between games of a Match, you can add, subtract or exchange cards from the Main Deck with cards in the Side Deck. Main Deck size cannot be less than 20 cards. Players may not trade the cards they received in their product with other players until they are done participating in the Sneak Peek. Players may not add cards they already own to their Sneak Peek Open Dueling Deck. Only the Promo and the cards pulled from the Booster Packs provided for that player at Registration may be used for Deck building. Using cards not obtained in the product directly given is considered cheating. - Sneak Peek Tournament OTS now have the option to run a tournament in conjunction with Open Dueling. This tournament cannot replace the Open Dueling portion of the Sneak Peek. OTS may offer this additional tournament(s) as part of the Sneak Peek festivities, by advertising it ahead of time. The number of tournaments each store will be allowed to host will vary by store, based on how many Sneak Peek kits are purchased. The OTS has the option to use a maximum of one (1) Game Mat per kit as a 1st Place tournament prize for a Sneak Peek tournament (one Game Mat per winner). This means that if a store is approved for 3 kits, they can run a maximum of three (3) Sneak Peek tournaments. One Game Mat per kit must still be used as a random door prize or giveaway to those who actively participate in Open Dueling. Only Duelists who have registered and purchased entry into the Sneak Peek are eligible to participate in a Sneak Peek tournament. No additional entry fee may be charged. Sneak Peek tournaments may not be run outside of the scheduled Sneak Peek hours. Sneak Peek tournaments will be run as a Tier 1, Constructed event, and Duelists may incorporate cards from the Sneak Peek into their Decks. The Sneak Peek tournament is considered to be Official, but it is not Sanctioned. This means that the tournament will not affect the Duelist’s COSSY Ratings & Rankings. The winner of each Sneak Peek tournament will win one (1) Sneak Peek Game Mat. Decks must be constructed according to the latest Advanced Format guidelines. (See here for more information: http://www.yugioh-card.com/en/limited/#limited_adv). In addition, cards from Maximum Crisis will be tournament legal for these Sneak Peek tournaments. OTS may choose to run the Sneak Peek tournaments in either Swiss or Single-Elimination rounds. OTS may choose to run a Playoff Top Cut, if advertised prior to the start of the Sneak Peek. While a Duelist may only purchase one (1) Sneak Peek entry per location per day (5 packs of the new set, and a promo card), they may compete in multiple Sneak Peek tournaments a day as long as they have not already won a previous Sneak Peek tournament. No additional entry fees may be charged. This is because the Open Dueling and all Sneak Peek tournaments are included as part of the same Sneak Peek entry fee you paid when you purchased your entry into the event. All Duelists must have a valid COSSY ID and be in good standing in order to participate in a Sneak Peek tournament. All Duelists must have purchased entry into the Sneak Peek in order to be eligible to participate in a Sneak Peek tournament.
