A three-hour Yu-Gi-Oh! tournament yesterday at the 2006 San Diego Comic-Con decided who would go on to Japan next month for more card-based battling and who would just go home. The tourney, sponsored by Konami, pitted 16 gamers against one another playing Yu-Gi-Oh! WC 2006 for the Game Boy Advance. The winners--from first to fourth place--are Jason Lee, 21, of Oakland, California; Patrick Lewis, 17, of Norwalk, California; Michael Haught, 24, of Finleyville, Pennsylvania; and Brandon Sherman, 13, of Randolph, New Jersey. Each received an assortment of Yu-Gi-Oh! loot from Konami, such as a card set exclusive to the San Diego convention. All four US winners will travel to Tokyo, Japan, for the world-championship matches on August 5 and 6.
