The game is a trading card game in which players draw cards from their respective decks and take turns playing cards onto “the field.” Each player uses a deck containing forty to sixty cards, and an optional “Extra Deck” of up to fifteen cards. There is also a fifteen card side deck, which allows players to swap cards from their main deck and/or extra deck between games. Players are restricted to three of each card per deck and must follow the Forbidden/Limited card list, which restricts selected cards by Konami to be limited to two, one, or zero. Each player starts with 8,000 (2,000 to 4,000 in the manga and anime) “Life Points”, with the main aim of the game to use attacks and spells to reduce the opponent’s Life Points.
