Tag Duel Tournament is an event in Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links. It lasts from January 24, 2018 to February 4, 2018.
Similar to earlier events, the player must collect Friendship Letters to enter duels in the Tournament. These are obtained by dueling normal enemies in Duel World. In addition, dueling during the event rewards players with Tag Coins—1 coin for every 100 points earned in a Duel, multiplied by each mode's multiplier—which can be traded for a wide variety of cards (picked at random via the event's card lottery).
In the Normal mode, players join with Yami Yugi, each Duel requires 7 Friendship Tickets, the Tag Coin multiplier is x1, and they must clear three rounds to win.
Yami Yugi's Deck
Skill:Reinforcements of Dark Magic: If “Dark Magician Girl” is on your team’s side of the field, add 1 "Sage's Stone" to your partner, Yami Yugi’s hand, at the beginning of his turn. This Skill can only be used once per Duel.
In the Normal mode, players join with Joey Wheeler, each Duel requires 12 Friendship Tickets, the Tag Coin multiplier is x3, and they must clear five rounds to win.

Skill:Is That All Ya Got?!: If your team has less than 2000 Life Points, randomly play 1 "The Legendary Fisherman" or "Jinzo" on the field at the beginning of your partner, Joey Wheeler's turn. This Skill can only be used once per Duel.
In the Master mode, players join with Seto Kaiba. They must clear five rounds to win. This mode was unavailable until January 28, 2018, at which point players could play it if they already cleared Hard mode. As an additional measure of difficulty, players must begin the five rounds over if they lose even once.
