PostSubject: N0P Lesson 1: What is Yu-Gi-Oh?   Fri Aug 31, 2012 2:59 pm

Introduction
The Origin of Yu-Gi-Oh

Yu-Gi-Oh began as a manga (Japanese comic) franchise created by Kazuki Takahashi. After relative success, it was adapted into an anime (Japanese cartoon). The franchise slowly evolved to involve a card game known as Duel Monsters as its centerpiece. Duel Monsters has become very successful, and is, of course, the reason you are at this academy.

Main
How to Play Yu-Gi-Oh

Set-Up
To illustrate the set-up, I will use this image of a play mat.
[Only admins are allowed to see this image]
Yu-Gi-Oh is a 2 player game. Each person has a deck of 40 to 60 cards. On a play mat each deck is placed on the farthest right square closest to a player. Directly above the deck in the image is the graveyard, the usual place that cards go when they have been used or destroyed. To the left of the deck are the spell and trap card zones, where you can play spell and trap cards. Monsters go in the monster card zones to the left of the graveyard. Note that there are only 5 of each of these zones which means that you can only have up to 5 monsters and 5 spells or traps in play at one time. To the left of these zones, are the field card zone on top and the extra deck (labeled as the fusion deck in the diagram). However, we will ignore these last 2 zones for now.
In Yu-Gi-Oh, a single game is called a duel. A match is a set of duels in which players play best 2 out of 3 to determine the winner. To start out a duel, players place their decks in the proper zones and then play rock, paper, scissors. The winner decides who goes first. Players then draw 5 cards each from their deck. Each player also starts out with 8000 life points. If a player runs out of life points, they lose the duel. Usually, a players try to reduce their opponents' life points to zero.

Gameplay
In Yu-Gi-Oh, turns go back and forth between players. Each turn is divided into 6 phases. The first phase is the Draw Phase. During the draw phase, the turn player draws one card. In the next phase, the Standby Phase, certain card effects are applied. The Main Phase 1 comes next. During the Main Phase 1, the turn player can summon monsters, use spells, set traps, and do other things that will be gone over later. After the Main Phase 1, the turn player can enter their Battle Phase, where they use there monsters to battle with their opponents monsters or to attack their opponent directly. However, on the first turn of the person who goes first, the player cannot enter the Battle Phase. After the Battle Phase comes the Main Phase 2. All actions that can be performed during the Main Phase 1 can also be performed during the Main Phase 2. The final phase is the End Phase. During the End Phase, certain card effects are activated or applied. After the End Phase, it becomes the next players turn, and the cycle continues until somebody wins the duel.

Closing
Some Extra Details

Closing Remarks
All of this may seem like a lot to remember, but you will get the hang of this faster than you think. The more you play the better you will get. These are the basic rules, but there is a lot more to learn in the coming lessons. Just remember, this is a game, so go out there and have fun when you play it.

Homework
- Memorize the 6 phases in order (Draw Phase, Standby Phase, Main Phase 1, Battle Phase, Main Phase 2, End Phase)
- Memorize the locations of the Deck, the Graveyard, the Monster Card Zones, and the Spell and Trap Card Zones
- Find someone to duel with and have fun

Fun Stuff
Trivia and a Riddle

Trivia
- Yu-Gi-Oh means King of Games in Japanese
- There are over 5000 cards in the Yu-Gi-Oh TCG
- Yu-Gi-Oh, the card game's, original Japanese name translates to Magic and Wizards

Riddle Me This
What's black and white and red all over?

Nice job, pro. I would like to correct ONE thing though. Normally it is a 2 player game, but there are always Tag-Duels (consist of 4 players) just throwing that out there.
