UKTCGS is one of the most active card game communities based in the UK, with both a lively website and facebook group. The site mainly caters to Yu-Gi-Oh! players, but welcomes players from all sorts of card games, such as Magic and Pokemon. The community is made up of players ranging from absolute beginners to World Championship competitors and aims to be be a friendly and inviting environment regardless of which end of the scale you fall onto.
It was originally started by a concerned parent who found it hard to locate events in the local area and details on such events. Nowadays it contains information on events all across the country, so if you’re just starting out you can find out what’s going on around you to build up your experience and if you’re a more experienced player you won’t miss out on the big events. By cooperation with local Tournament Organisers they are also able to occasionally offer free entry to larger events for lucky prize draw winners. In addition the site provides videos and photos of some of the events around the country, allowing players to see what’s going on around them more easily than just with words.
So if you’re looking for events in your area, or just some people to talk about cards with, it could well be worth a visit for you.
