yu-gi-oh-logoFollowing Upper Deck’s cancellation of all Yu-Gi-Oh events in North America, Wizards has graciously invited all players who were qualified for Yu-Gi-Oh championships to instead attend upcoming Magic championships … to play Magic. “To honor your high-level accomplishments, we want to offer you the opportunity to join us for the United States or Canadian Championships in the Summer of 2009.”

Konami is expressed some concern about this invitation to WotC, as it’s trying to pick up the ball that UD has abandoned. Wizards’ answer: “We applaud all trading card game tournament activity, as it benefits the industry as a whole. We wish Konami, and the players, every success.”
