About Ultimate Duelist Series & UDS Points

The Ultimate Duelist Series Invitational is a free tournament open only to qualified Duelists who have earned a minimum requirement of UDS Points (100 UDS Points). They are exciting 2-day events that take place from Saturday to Sunday.  Duelists from all over will attend these events to compete for exclusive prizes, and spend the weekend Dueling, trading, and hanging out with hundreds of other Yu-Gi-Oh! fans.

You will need a minimum of 100 UDS Points in order to enter the next UDS Invitational.  To see how many UDS Points you currently have, check here: http://www.yugioh-card.com/en/ultimateduelist/udsrankings.html

UDS Points are the qualifying units you must earn in order to participate in an Ultimate Duelist Series Invitational.
UDS Points are awarded based on participation and/or final standings and judging in Ultimate Duelist Series Qualifiers, and at most Tier 2 events such as Regionals, Dragon Duels, Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series, and World Championship Qualifiers.

UDS Points are linked to your COSSY ID number. You must make sure that your COSSY ID has been properly registered (http://www.yugioh-card.com/en/events/cossy.html) in order to be eligible to participate in an Ultimate Duelist Series Qualifier. If you have never registered your COSSY ID, you must register your COSSY ID no later than four (4) business days prior to the UDS Invitational.

MTG Commander 2015 Tournaments – Saturday November 14th At All Stores

commander2015logoAlternate Universes is holding Commander 2015 tournaments on Saturday November 14th!

The popular release, designed for multiplayer mayhem right out of the box, will feature five enemy color decks this year. Orzhov, Boros, Izzet, Golgari, and Simic players of the multiverse rejoice!

Each of the five decks will come packaged with one oversized foil Commander, 10 double sided tokens, and 15 new cards (for a total of 55 for this set).

The Commander series has provided powerful cards for competitive play such as Scavenging Ooze and Flusterstorm. With 55 new cards coming in November, it will be interesting to see what cards may shake up Legacy and Vintage in the coming months.

Entry fee: $35

Each participant will receive a Commander 2015 deck of their choice (while supplies last).  Players will be placed in 3-5 person pods for play.  Players will receive one booster for each player they eliminate from their pod.  Listed below are the details for each store:
