Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH offers many exciting activities during those two days, namely a feature match area where you can watch the top Duels of the main event, and a wide selection of Public Events, ranging from casual to highly-competive events. Many of those events are free of charge and offer Booster Packs or Turbo Packs as participation prizes, and you shouldn’t miss the chance to Duel in at least one of them!

No prior qualification is necessary, so take your chance to Duel against players from across Europe! The Dragon Duel event starts at 10:00 on Sunday and has an entry fee of EUR 3,-.
