STARTER DECK — LINK STRIKE — BEGINNER'S GUIDE
Here’s an early look at the new Beginner’s Guide that will be included with July 21st’s Starter Deck — Link Strike — release. The new Extra Monster Zones will bring some new strategy to the game, so you can start prepping for it whenever you’re ready.
(Note: The Beginner’s Guide rules won’t actually kick in until July 21st, so current rules still apply until then.)
Your first official chance to show off with the new rules and Link Monsters will be at Yu-Gi-Oh! Day held at participating Official Tournament Stores on July 22 and 23. See you there!
NOTE: You'll need a PDF viewer, such as Adobe Reader, to read these documents.
