For the brave few competitors whose skill, endurance, and sheer luck are enough to bring them to the top of the heap, the richest prizes await, because when the WCQ main event is over and one Champion remains, all four Finalists will punch their ticket to the Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship in Berlin, Germany, with travel and accommodations courtesy of KONAMI. And while the final Rounds of the WCQ will pit those last four Duelists against one another as they vie for the title of North America WCQ Champion, they'll have to set aside all rivalries and work together to represent North America at the World Championship itself.

But that's not all, because the North America WCQ offers an incredible spread of prizes to all top finishers! For nearly a year, the YCS Prize Card Chaos Emperor, the Dragon of Armageddon has enticed thousands of Duelists to test their mettle in the Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series, a card so powerful it's an instant upgrade to one of the most popular Decks of the year. Now, at the North America WCQ, all Top 32 finishers will win a Super Rare copy just for reaching the Top Cut, along with a 2019 WCQ Top Cut Game Mat exclusive to the event.

Top finishers in the North America Dragon Duel WCQ will also have the chance to prove themselves and win tremendous prizes for their efforts, some exclusive to the Dragon Duel division. Showcasing the continent's greatest youth Duelists born 2006 or later, both Finalists in the Dragon Duel WCQ will be awarded travel and accommodations to compete in the Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship in Berlin. Each Finalist will also receive two copies of the Super Rare YCS Prize Card along with other prizes, and all Top 8 finishers will take home one copy of the YCS Prize Card and a Dragon Duel WCQ Top Cut Mat.
