After the success of the May half-term Woolworth Duelist Leagues, events will be held at selected Woolworths stores across the UK throughout the remainder of the summer.

Upper Deck has arranged for free demos of Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game to be run by specially trained demonstrators on selected days over the summer school holidays. This will give children an opportunity to experience the product with 49 stores participating twice over a two-week period resulting in just under 100 events.

"Each event will be run in a workshop style where children will be able to learn to play, chat to our Yu-Gi-Oh! Experts and take part in mini leagues with other children. This is important to the longevity of the game and also gives parents a chance to see the product and how their child engages in play with Yu-Gi-Oh! before they make the purchase decision”, commented Natalie Taylor, Upper Deck’s marketing manager for UK and Ireland.

Freebies such as posters and promotional cards will also be given out at every event to support the summer activity in the selected Woolworths stores.

The events will be held over 20th August to 2nd September between 10am – 12pm and 2pm – 4pm, depending on the store. Each store will have posters advertising the event and full details of participating stores will be posted on www.tcgworld.co.uk/woolworths in advance of the event.
