From Ice Hockey Rink to Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME Tournament

08.09.2012 | 10:03 |

This is one of the “coolest” tournament venues around. Originally an ice hockey rink, the staff did an awesome job transforming the venue into the perfect location for the world’s first ever Battle Pack Sealed event!

See the scoreboard with the giant YCS banner hanging below it?

Well, take a closer look.

40 Minutes Left in the Round!

40 Minutes Left in the Round!

The scoreboard will be used to keep track of the amount of time left in the round. It’ll also be used to indicate which round of the tournament we’re currently in. The tournament hasn’t started yet, but just for demonstration purposes, the scoreboard above shows that there’s 40 minutes left in Round 2. Coolest of all, when time runs out on the clock, a buzzer will sound so that all Duelists know that the end-of-time procedure has begun!

But these aren’t the only transformations that need to be made to turn a hockey rink into a Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG tournament venue!

The players bench has been turned into a station for the coverage staff.

And the Scorekeepers Bench has been turned into… actually, it’s a bench for the Yu-Gi-Oh! scorekeepers.

The stands looked a bit bland, so they’ve been decorated with awesome Yu-Gi-Oh! banners like the one below.

And of course, tables have been set up so that everyone has a place to Duel!

We'll need these tables for Deck Construction and Dueling.
