Are you new to the world of Yu-Gi-Oh!? If so, you’ve come to the right place!

Yu-Gi-Oh! is an exciting universe based on a card game played with Monsters, Spells, and Traps. The Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise includes manga series, television series, several video games, the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME, and more! This short guide will help you familiarize yourself with some of what Yu-Gi-Oh! has to offer.

New to Yu-Gi-Oh! Video Games

Can’t get enough of the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME? You’re in luck! You can also play the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 with Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s Decade Duels Plus! Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s Decade Duels Plus – downloadable through the Xbox Live Arcade and the PlayStation Store – follows the rules of the official Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME and uses the same strategic thinking required by the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME.



There are also some video games that put a cool twist on the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME. Yu-Gi-Oh! BAM, playable on Facebook and Kongregate and Yu-Gi-Oh! BAM Pocket available on iOS devices, is a fast-paced game that features the Spells, Traps, and Monsters available in the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME. Yu-Gi-Oh! BAM uses a different set of rules than the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME, and gives cool new effects to your old favorites. Nevertheless, it requires the same strategic thinking to succeed, as players construct 15-card Decks to pilot against each opponent in a battle of wits.



In addition to the Yu-Gi-Oh! video games available on game consoles and Facebook, there is also an arcade machine called a “Duel Terminal,” available at special hobby stores. The Duel Terminal lets players play a series of mini-games involving popular Yu-Gi-Oh! characters and monster cards, or face off against opponents in a Duel that uses modified rules adapted from the official Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME. Plus, each time a player plays on the Duel Terminal Arcade Machine, he or she receives one random card. The cards dispensed by the Duel Terminal can be scanned into the arcade machine during future plays, and used during gameplay. Click here for a list of stores that have a Duel Terminal Arcade Machine available for you to play!
