Yu-Gi-Oh! in Egypt?

The world’s most popular trading card game just got a little bit bigger. On Thursday, Konami announced that the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG is now officially available in the Middle East, giving duelists in the region the opportunity to play in local sanctioned tournaments for the first time ever. To bring official Yu-Gi-Oh! products and tournaments to the region, Konami has partnered with Dueling Area, a Kuwait-based company established in 2013 by fans of trading card games. Dueling Area is already a distributor of Bushiroad’s Cardfight!! Vanguard game.

Dueling Area will be responsible for distributing Yu-Gi-Oh! products and organizing events in Bahrain, Egypt, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates. The region’s first sanctioned tournament will be the World Championship Qualifier: Kuwaiti National Championship, which takes place on June 6.
