The game Yu-Gi-Oh is all the rage in the world, but more especially so in the United States, since this card game has created an enormous cult following by having added great monetary value to their special power cards. And now you have conventions at all times of the year in many cities, along with a lot of different competition taking place locally and nationally. And of course one friend will influence his or her other friends to join in and play, and one child will influence his or her parents to join in and accompany that child to all types of events to pump up this seemingly innocent but very addictive game. But what is Yu-Gi-Oh?
Well here is what is said about YuGiOh:
YuGiOh is a Japanese manga series about gaming created by Kazuki Takahashi (Studio Dice). Yu-Gi-Oh was originally a Japanese manga, (backwards comic) and evolved into a cartoon and eventually a card game. with new sets of cards coming out every few months. It is a popular card game that began more than a decade ago primarily in Japan and then moving its way into the Americas and all across the world, and is one of the (if not) most popular card games in the world. However, strangely enough Yu Gi Oh is not the most popular TCG in Japan, where it was created, but rather Duel Masters.
Basically, its a card game, with monster cards, trap cards and magic cards, you can summon up to 5 monsters and 5 magic/trap cards. each monster has a number of stars which represents its level, lv 1-4 you can summon it onto the field in attack or defense position, lv 5-6 you need to sacrifice one of the monsters on your field to summon it, lv 7-10 usually requires 2 summons unless stated otherwise. the attack and defense values are showed on the card, when the monster is in defense and you kill it with a monster with higher attack the opponent takes no damage with his life points, if it is in attack and you kill it with a monster with higher attack,
The player takes damage (his monsters attack - monster that killed him attack) to his life points, players can use magic cards to assist them in game, the card effects are written on the magic cards, and trap cards can be used when an opponent attacks, activates a magic or activates a trap, trap cards usually involve destroying the opponents monsters or dealing damage to life points. players start out with 8000 life points each, when there are no monsters on the opponents field you can do a direct attack on the opponent with your monster, which will subtract your life points by the monsters attack. there are also monster effects most of which are flip effects in which you summon your monster in defence position (face down) and flip it up or let it get attacked/ destroyed to activate the effect, there are also other effects for many monsters, most are not the same.
What or Who is behind the YuGiOh Phenomenon?
Here Is What Some Have Said Online
It is the devil (satan), who uses his demonic power to blind the minds of children and adults nationwide to the dangers of Yu-Gi-Oh. Yu-Gi-Oh is an occult oriented game and anything of the occult is dangerous. You say, “that is ridiculous! Yu-Gi-Oh is just kids stuff, a card game, a cartoon!” That is exactly what Satan wants you to believe.
Satan wants to do everything contrary to God and his word (The Bible). He has counterfeits to everything God has and will often add a lot of truth with his lies to deceive people. Satan himself is the father of sin. 1 John 3:8 says... So What Do You Think, is there any truth to this?
