Hey everyone! At the request of the Yu-Gi-Oh! trading card community I'm putting together a bit of an October round-up of releases and events. I think including video game news would also be helpful, but unfortunately I'm currently not aware of any! For now, we'll just roll with Yu-Gi-Oh! trading card stuff and depending on the reception we'll go from there!
- Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series (YCS) San Mateo, October 4-6
- "Big, exciting 2-day event that take place from Saturday to Sunday. Duelists from all over will attend these events to compete for exclusive prizes; earn invites to their World Championship Qualifier; and spend the weekend Dueling, trading, and hanging out with hundreds of other Yu-Gi-Oh! fans.
- "In addition to the main Championship Series tournament, there are numerous Public Events, including tournaments specifically for Duelists born in 2001 or later, and Regional Qualifier tournaments. Competitive or casual, there is something for everyone to do at a Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series weekend event." (Source: Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG FAQ)
- Legendary Collection 4: Joey's World Launch, October 11
- "Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game collector's set. It is the fourth in the Legendary Collection series. The set contains a collapsible hard-backed game board, three promotional cards, six Tokens and five Legendary Collection 4 Mega-Packs."
- Three premiere cards are included per box: Joey Wheeler's "Blue Flame Swordsman", Mai Valentine's "Harpie Lady Phoenix Formation" and Marik Ishtar's "Card of Last Will", the last of which will not be allowed in official tournament play, due to its "insane power level." Also included are 6 Ultra Rare token cards: Joey's 4 Sheep Tokens (previously released only as convention exclusives) and 2 Lamb Tokens (never before released)." (Source: Yu-Gi-Oh! Wikia)
- Duelist Pack Yugi & Kaiba: Special Edition Launch, October 25

These events are also the perfect opportunity to Duel, trade and hang out with hundreds of other Yu-Gi-Oh! fans."
- "In addition to the main Championship Series tournament there are numerous Public Events, including tournaments specifically for Duelists born 2001 and later. Competitive or casual, there is something for everyone to do at a Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series weekend event."
- "In the run-up to YCS London, stores across the United Kingdom will be holding special tournaments called YCS Trials. The winners of these trials will be awarded with free entry to the Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series London main event." (Source: Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG FAQ)

If there's any other October Yu-Gi-Oh! events, releases, or anything else you'd think would be fitting for our calendar then please let us know in the comments! I'll be honest, I don't really know much about Yu-Gi-Oh!, the TCG, or the ongoing Championship Series, but we're very interested in helping bring our epic Neoseeker communizes as much attention as possible. If you have any ideas for how the Editorial team can do this, feel free to send me a private message.
Thanks a million to Swampert X for all of his help and initiative in getting this moving!
