It’s time to e-e-e-e-eat! Ovation Brands, the owner of several American buffet chain restaurants, and Furr’s Fresh Buffet are bringing Yu-Gi-Oh! to the dinner table with their upcoming Family Night promotion. Every Thursday night, from July 5 through August 9, kids of all ages can participate in various educational and interactive activities at each restaurant. Each week has its own theme:

* Week 1, July 5, “Going to Japan”: Since Yu-Gi-Oh! originated in Japan, kids will learn about Japanese culture, art, food, and more. They’ll also learn about origami, the art of paper folding, and make origami shapes and animals.

* Week 2, July 12, “Ani-Me”: Kids will learn about anime like Yu-Gi-Oh! and get to draw their own anime characters.

* Week 3, July 19, “Puzzle Me This”: Just like how Yugi solved the Millennium Puzzle, kids will be challenged to solve a variety of puzzles. Then, they will create their own puzzles to share with other children to solve.

* Week 4, July 26, “Manga! Manga!”: Before it became a hit card game, Yu-Gi-Oh! began as a manga. Kids will learn about manga and popular comics, both Japanese and American.

* Week 5, August 2, “Time Travel with Monsters”: Many Yu-Gi-Oh! monsters are inspired by myths, legends, and history. Kids will learn about such monsters, then get to create their own.

* Week 6, August 9, “Dueling Cards”: As a team, kids will develop cards inspired by the Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game. The cards will include different monsters and children will assign powers to each. Then, they will all get to play the card game.

Yu-Gi-Oh! Family Night will take place on each listed date from 5 to 8 pm at all of Ovation Brands’ restaurants and all Furr’s Fresh Buffet restaurants. Visit their websites to find a location near you:

Yu-Gi-Oh! is just one of numerous children’s properties that Ovation Brands and Furr’s Fresh Buffet have partnered with over the last few years. The restaurants have previously held Family Night events featuring Beyblade, Jumanji, Home Alone 2, The Sandlot, StoryBots, Thumbs Up Johnnie, and more.

  1. Rome is about 35-ish minutes away from me. Wish I could go but I likely couldn’t.

  2. Rome?

  3. This is the most random promotional event for YGO, but it seems like it’d be cool. Hope they get a decent attendance for these!

  4. The closest Ovation Brands restaraunt and the only one in a Florida is Ryan’s, but it’s all the way up in Pace, Florida in the Panhandle. That’s too far from Orlando and Jacksonville. Would love to go to an event like that, but why so far way?
