You Will Need:

Step 1: Study each card
Study each card and become familiar with every monster, spell, and trap in your deck.
Collect booster packs to custom create your own unique deck and tailor it for each duel. The key to a good deck is diversity and balance.
Step 2: Locate an opponent
Locate an opponent to play with, such as a friend or family member.
While you only need two people to play, teams of several players can make each duel more challenging and fun.
Step 3: Shuffle and cut decks
Shuffle and cut each deck and place them face down on the game mat.
Step 4: Flip coin
Flip a coin to decide play order. The winner can choose to either receive or challenge.
Step 5: Draw and duel
Draw your first five cards and begin the duel by placing the cards face up and deciding a winner based on the card's information.
Since the number of possible play combinations can number into the thousands, an official rulebook may be needed for beginners.
Step 6: Determine winner
Determine the winner by scoring backwards from 8,000 for each player. The loser is the first to reach zero points or run out of cards.
