For years now, ever since it was first introduced back in the late 1990s, Yu-Gi-Oh The Trading Card Game has been such a phenomenon that it has sold well over 25 billion cards worldwide. Not only that, but has sparked a revolution in the gaming industry with one hit title after another. Mainly in the handheld market.
The series is usually not something that is confined to the house, but rather taken on the road every chance a player gets. On top of that, each year Konami hosts a major tournament in several different countries, each leading up to the next, with an ultimate grand price of up to $10,000. Indeed, no wonder you will literally see players pitching up tents and hanging around the building eagerly waiting for the doors to open.
You don't even have to be a player to attend. No sir, the atmosphere is there for you to enjoy as a spectator, and if you are ever so slightly interested in learning to play the famous TCG, you can do so via instructors on the scene, who are there simply to have a seat with you and teach you what you need to know to get off to a good start.
Die hard fans will also appreciate the number of anime episodes for the series that's sprung up over the years. The latest being the new Arc-V that launched in Japan on Tokyo TV here a while back. Here is hoping it will make a worldwide appearance so the rest of us can enjoy.
After all that, the only natural thing that comes along with it, is more of your usual fan based material, some cosplay, some musical based, and some even dwelling in the comedy department, like this video below made by fans who did a parody for Yu-G-Oh Duel.
College humor is nothing new, but then again, this involves YuGiOh as two friends duke it out head to head while adding a dose of comedy to the mix, and sure to guarantee a good laugh or two in the process. Fire away with your comments on it below and let me know what you think about it.
