The 2004 Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game World Championships rocked the Anaheim Convention Center on Sunday, July 25, 2004 and left one champion standing. Masatoshi Togawa of Japan won it all with his Chaos/Control deck and here's what he scored for becoming the 2004 Yu-Gi-Oh! King of Games!
2004 Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG World Championship Prizes
When Masatoshi won, he earned himself an exclusive Ulevo card
and a backpack crammed full of Yu-Gi-Oh! prizes
. The runners up got exclusive Meteo the Matchless cards
as well as backpacks of Yu-Gi-Oh! stuff. The Ulevo and Meteo the Matchless cards came sealed in blocks of acrylic and are banned from play in any tournament
. Here are the card details:
Winged Beast / Effect
This card cannot be Special Summoned. This card must be Tribute Summoned by offering 3 Winged Beast-Type monsters on your side of the field as Tributes. If this card attacks your opponent's Life Points directly and makes them 0, the controller of this card wins the Match.
Meteo the Matchless
Beast-Warrior / Effect
This card cannot be Special Summoned. This card must be Tribute Summoned by offering 3 Beast-Warrior-Type monsters on your side of the field as Tributes. If this card attacks your opponent's Life Points directly and makes them 0, the controller of this card wins the Match.
2004 Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG World Championship Thumbs Up:
It was great to see that any player who played in regional tournaments
and did well could get into the championship
. All you need to do to get into the championship for next year is play and win! Also, the exclusive Yu-Gi-Oh! movie cards
were available at the championship for people to buy - rather than having to wait for the movie
to drop on August 13, 2004!
2004 Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG World Championship Thumbs Down:
The biggest bummer about the tournament
(other than Steven Allen Arias
getting eliminated early) was the prizes
. The prize cards are weak - you're better off with a Blue Eyes White Dragon
, or Dark Magician
! Also, the winners didn't score any kind of cash prize, just tons more Yu-Gi-Oh! stuff
. Some scholarship money would have made the tournament way cooler, and it would encourage more people to play Yu-Gi-Oh! cuz they'd see that you could win prizes
by becoming an expert dueler
