'Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links' will come to mobile games in 2017. Konami

The latest update to Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links brings Duelist Challenges, which are (essentially) a variation on Duel Quizzes. These new quizzes will gift duelists with rewards like new monster cards and gems that you’ll need to open new packs.

Completion of each quiz will give one reward depending on the Challenge you complete. There are six Duelist Challenges in all, with the last Challenge rewarding duelists with the new fusion monster, Skull Knight.

Some quick notes on the Duelist Challenges in Duel Links. First, you can only receive a reward for completion once. Also, Duel Quizzes do not count towards the completion of Stage Missions.

Here are the rewards for completing each Duelist Challenge.


Challenge #1 - 30 Gems

Challenge #2 - Ancient Brain

Challenge #3 - 40 Gems

Challenge #4 - Tainted Wisdom

Challenge #5 - 50 Gems

Challenge #6 - Skull Knight

However, not all of the Duelist Challenges are available after downloading the latest Duel Links update. The first two will be available, with the second opening up after you complete the first.

The subsequent Duelist Challenges will become available each day this week. You may need to complete the preceding Duelist Challenges to unlock them, it’s not entirely clear at this point. We’ll be sure to update when the new Challenges appear.

Here’s the complete schedule of the Duelist Challenges.


Challenge #3 - May 10

Challenge #4 - May 11

Challenge #5 - May 12

Challenge #6 - May 13

So how do you complete each of the Challenges? Like the Duel Quizzes, you’ll need to defeat your opponent in one turn. Some of the Challenges are pretty straightforward but others are more tricky.
