1. Heart of The Cards
Following fast on the heels of Pokemon, the latest rage to ride the tsunami from the isle of machination to global domination is, Yu-Gi-Oh!
2. The Guantlet Is Thrown
Like the industry legend Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh! is a game and a show. But, this game is not video, it is a highly addictive card game. Pokemon had cards too and Yu-Gi-Oh! has a video game as well, but this card game is a much bigger deal, rivaling the likes of the widespread MAGIC the Gathering series of card games. Popular it is, this game of cards.
3. Journey to The Duelists Kingdom
A side-by-side comparison of the latest phenomenon with the legend goes like this: In its first 3 years in Japan, Pokemon sold 10 million video games and 600 million cards. After 3 years in Japan, Yu-Gi-Oh! sold 7 million video games and 3 BILLION cards. So, Yu-Gi-Oh! is a video game too, but the cards are where the attraction lies. So far, Pokemon has sold 90 million video games and 6 billion cards. If Yu-Gi-Oh! stays on par with Pokemon it may end up having one of the largest followings of any game in history.
4. Duel Monsters
So who or what is Yu-Gi-Oh!, anyway?
The show excels with the highly-kinetic Japanese anime style and follows the adventures of a shy high school student named Yugi. Yugi is not a popular kid and takes the blunt of many high school bullies, but is able to escape this ridicule when an ancient Egyptian artifact, known as “The Millennium Puzzle”, transports him into a magical realm where the popular card game, Duel Monsters, comes to life!
5. Millennium Puzzle
The Millennium Puzzle carries a deep secret buried deep within it. When Yugi finds himself in a bit of trouble, which often the case, the puzzle comes to life and invites Yugi to, “How about playing a game with me?”
6. The Ultimate Great Moth
Intricate, that is what makes Yu-Gi-Oh! so immensely popular. Details, that’s what it’s got in spades. Details out the Yin Yang! Vibrantly rich details providing a “real world” that deeply submerses the players and viewers in a complex and entertaining experience.
7. Everything’s Relative
During the first season of the show, Yugi was put to the test when he had to save his grandfather, this season the stakes have risen just a bit and now he must save the entire world.
8. Champion vs. Creator
The second series is currently underway in Japan and is based around Yugi’s adventures when his grandfather’s soul is stolen by, Pegasus J. Crawford, the creator of the card game Duel Monsters. Yugi must journey to the Duelist Kingdom to face Pegasus in a tournament to win back his grandfather’s soul.
9. The Dueling Monkey
Yu-Gi-Oh! for PlayStation 2 hit shelves nationwide in February. February also was the launch date for a new set of booster-pack cards for the game, called Labyrinth of Nightmare. Two new starter decks are also hitting the market in March, featuring 50 never-before-seen cards. You gotta love that. Especially since the release coincides with a 12-weekend nationwide tour of Yu-Gi-Oh! players at malls all over the country.
10. Shining Friendship
That same month they graced the cover of the pop-culture metronome, The TV Guide. Like all good phenomenons the show garnered 3 different collector covers. And in sparkly foil, to boot! Yami Yugi, Seto Kaiba and Marik all received the Hollywood royal treatment with their own separate cover shots. A little known special 4th cover is also available, this one featuring a new character, Mai. Mai will come to play a very significant role during this new season.
