When that blond, spiky-haired boy named Yugi Mutoh solved the Millennium Puzzle, he not only unlocked a legendary entity from Ancient Egypt, but he is also granted special powers when playing card games.
This translates into our real-world version of the “King of Games” as we are entrusted with the power of the cards in fast-paced and highly unpredictable duels.
How To Play Yu-Gi-Oh!
Think of this as a faster version of that other immensely popular, dark, and gritty collectible card game, Magic: The Gathering. You’ll be given a board where you can fling spells, plant traps, and summon creatures without waiting for mana requirements.
Of course, no card game is complete without special conditions to get powerful effects. You’d have to pay attention to what you’re holding and make sure that you’re doing magic right.
With an effective combo, you can simply outplay your opponent and keep cycling your magic and monsters until your opponent’s life points drops to zero. You can even do this without letting your opponent play anything on his/her side of the table.
The fun in these games lies from building a deck where each monster, spell, and trap produce effects that are in synergy with each other. Another part of the madness comes when you actually find an opponent to go against. It could be your friends, or even random people you meet at the dueling grounds.
Play a game or more and whether you win or lose, you’re more likely able to earn a new friend to look forward to on your next trip. What’s also great is that during play, you get to size up if your crafted deck has what it takes to hang out with the best of them.
Losing too much? Then it’s time for you to rethink your cards and find another winning idea to try out next time.
