Yugioh has been a small part of my life, but for many years. Growing up, I watched the anime, and of course had the cards. I never really played for real because the were mostly reject cards from the neighbor kids. Until about 2 months ago.
I got the fairly new app Yugioh Duel Links not long after it came out. I honestly still suck at the game, but I actually understand how to play and the basic rules of the game, things I never really knew growing up. Ironically, the anime is pretty inaccurate regarding actual game play, but there are certain things that I have learned or found funny because I have watched the shows.
So, about the game, I would totally reccomend it to fans of the original game/show or to people that aren’t but still want a fun game to play. Even though the game play is a bit different than the original, having only 3 monster and spell/trap slots, there is still a lot of strategy you put into the game.
I was the first of quite a few school friends that play the game too, so we ocassionally duel each other when we are bored at the end of class. My record is pretty solid, winning a little more than half of my duels with friends. It’s super fun and works on school wifi, so it’s even better!
In pvp, I use my Mai deck, which uses mostly machine type monsters and the aroma therapy skill. It is fairly effective, except for the fact that there is no field spell for machine monsters, and if I go against Mako, I am essentially screwed. I am trying to create a Blue Eyes Ultimate Dragon deck, because I finally got all of the parts required, but I don’t have enough dragons to create an effective dragon deck yet. I have been buying card packs to try and get more, but I ran out of gems and can’t do anything. I am working on leveling up my characters more for more gems.
I am really excited for the event that is out right now. Bakura is one of my favorite characters, and I can’t wait until I get enough points to unlock him. As I (think I) said before, I am actually pretty bad at this game, so it will take some time, but it will happen eventually.
My character name is TacoCheese44 if you want to friend me or duel me!
