Date: April 29th
Format: Open Dueling Sealed
Sneak Peek events are great ways to get your hands on cards from the latest set before the official release date. Players will receive 5 packs of the newest set and play in open dueling.
An Open Dueling event means 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.
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 Deck-building 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.
Also remember the store rules: NO SELLING CARDS unless it is to the store. Selling to others inside the store is prohibited and if you are found doing so, you will be asked to leave.
