Plans for Yu-Gi-Oh at the Den for 2012

Well 2011 is almost over and it has been a fantastic year! I have been so pleased with the number of players and the level of play I've seen develop at the Dragon's Den over the past year. We have seen many of our players head off to big events and do very well. Well now it is time to try and step it up, and offer some new incentives to our players.

Hang on to your hats as this might be a long post from me, but I think you will like what you read! Read on and help us get excited for Yu-Gi-Oh in the new year here at the Dragon's Den!

Player of the Year at the Dragon's Den

We are going to start a program to name a player of the year here at the Dragon's Den. We will be keeping track of points earned during matches played in the store.   We will be taking the top 8 players of each event per week and adding them into the list. We will be using the points that you earn during the game: 3 for a win, 1 for a draw, and 0 for a lose. The total from the event will be added to the total from previous events.

We will begin this on January 1st, so the Tuesday Night Yu-Gi-Oh event on January 3rd will be the first chance to earn points. We will be ending the points on December 16th and we will award the Player of the Year at the Dragon's Den after Yu-Gi-Oh on Sunday 23rd. If players are curious as to how they stand in the running, then you might want to read about the Leader Board next.

Leader Board

Every week we'll be posting a Leader Board in the store for the Player of the Year. This board will contain as many players as we can fit on the form, but I'm hoping for at least 20 names. It will list the ranking, name, number of points earned, and number of events played in. We will attempt to update and post the Leader Board weekly on Wednesday or Thursday.

Events, Events, Events

On top of all the regular events that we run, which includes Tuesday night events and Sunday events, we are in the process of getting some Regional events to be run at the store.  We are also thinking of running some other interesting events, but that will be announced later.

I'm very hopeful that adding in these cool add-ons will help bring in players and keep all other players excited to play weekly. Ohhhhhh.... I did not mention what you will get if you are the player of the year. That was intentional, you will have to play, come in, follow us, or read the blog for more information!
