Yu-Gi-Oh! is a collectible trading card game based on Duel Monsters, which is the main plot device in the popular Japanese manga Yu-Gi-Oh!, as well as the two anime series. Reenact your favorite duels from the television series! Blue Eyes VS Dark Magician! Destiny Heroes VS Elemental Heroes! Kaiba VS Yugi!

Normal deck construction consists of a minimum of 40 cards. Each deck may contain no more than (3) copies of any card. Victory goes to the player that reduces his opponent's life points to zero or less first.
Constructed formats require players to construct decks from cards they own, prior to the event. Each format has a list of forbidden, limited, and semi-limited cards. Cards from all Yu-Gi-Oh! sets are legal in both formats.
+ Advanced - Uses forbidden, limited, and semi-limited lists for deck
+ Traditional - Uses limited, and semi-limited lists for deck construction rules. The forbidden list is treated as a limited list.
Sometimes we also use some in-house formats like these:
+ All in the Family - All monsters must be of the same attribute.
+ Challenge of the Gods - To win, you must summon a God card.
+ Highlander - No more than one copy of any card is permitted in a deck.
+ I Spy - Players play with the top card of their deck revealed at all times.
+ Plain Janes - Only normal monsters are permitted. That is, only monsters with no effect.
+ Safe Haven - Trap cards are not permitted.
We play swiss-style rounds. In swiss-style, the first round is paired randomly. Each subsequent round puts players with similar records against each other. For example, players that are 3-0 after three rounds would play each other in round four.
