How do I find people who play Yu-Gi-Oh near me?
1. There are a lot of ways to find other people who play the game. The most obvious way is to look at the OTS locator. The locator searches for Official Tournament Stores, which host sanctioned events. Although this method might be obvious, there are some flaws such as Konami neglecting to update it regularly. You can play Yugioh duel links and search for people but personally I don't play that. The most effective method is to look at places like Facebook, Twitter, etc for Yugioh groups that might exist in your area or county. As it is, most locals tournaments or hosting locations aren't sanctioned because Konami doesn't like to do anything particularly fast or because the stores in question simply aren't interested so these groups are a big help. My area, for instance, has 3 locations within aren't sanctioned but all fall within 30 miles or so of each other.because it has what is known as an
long time duelist in Yu-Gi-Oh Trading Card Game
2. As others have said, many stores that focus on trading cards and other card/board games tend to have TCG Tournaments or players. You can also find some online from the official site.
If you go to a College or University, there’s probably some group or club that hangs out on a daily/regular basis to play, like in the student center/student union area.
Lastly, you can always go online and play. There’s Konami’s official App, Yu-gi-Oh Duel Links.
I would have suggested Dueling Network, but sadly, the site was shut down in 2016. However, I have heard of a few other options:
- YGO Pro, a free automatic dueling system with AIs
- Dueling Book, created by an admin from Dueling Network
- Dueling Nexus, automatic, similar to YGO Pro, but plays online in your browser. I’ve heard that they have made a tag-team option.
What is good about the alternatives, compared to Duel Links, is that you aren’t as limited in your card choices. In Duel Links, you need to buy them using In-Game currency, and you sometimes only have a chance at getting them. In these, however, you can put whatever cards you want.
