What is Yu-Gi-Oh?

Yu-Gi-Oh is a strategic Trading Card Game (TCG) that features three different card types; Monsters, Spells and Trap cards.

Each player begins a game (known as a Duel) with 8000 Life Points, the object of the game is to use of
your cards to reduce your opponents Life Points to 0.

How do you play Yu-Gi-Oh?


Here is a (very) oversimplified breakdown of the gameplay:

As previously mentioned there are three different types of cards in ‘Yu-Gi-Oh!’, these cards being: Monster cards, Spell cards and Trap cards. At the start of their turn a player may draw a card and proceed to summon monster cards, spell cards or trap cards to the field. All cards may be placed faced down until activated. Monster cards may be placed faced up and be played in their attack position or their defence position (card is turned side on) for their defence score. From here its a matter of attacking your opponents cards, a backwards and forwards of playing cards and activating trap cards on their triggers. All this is to accomplish the goal of the game – to reduce your opponents ‘lifepoints’ to 0.
