Several of the fictitious games in the Yu-Gi-Oh! anime and manga series have been adapted into card, board and video games.

Card game[edit]

Other games[edit]

Apart from Magic & Wizards, several other games have been adapted from the original manga, the most famous of which being:

  • Capsule Monster Chess (Capmon) — a sort of pre-Mage Knight collectible miniatures game. Video game: Capsule Monster Coliseum
  • Monster World — a role-playing chess game. Video game: Monster Capsule GB (available in Japanese only)
  • Dungeon Dice Monsters (DDM), known in the Japanese manga as Dragons Dice & Dungeons (DDD) — a dungeon crawl board game where the tiles are created by unfolding the faces of 6-sided dice. Video game: Dungeon Dice Monsters.

Among the three, only Dungeon Dice Monsters and Capsule Monsters have been released as real collectible games by Mattel. Dungeon Dice Monsters wasn't popular, and currently no more new figures are released for it. On March 29, 2003, Mattel released the English version of the first booster of Dungeon Dice Monsters in America, under the title DragonFlame, but so far, only four of the seven boosters in Japanese version have been released, with the last one released in June 2003.

Yu-Gi-Oh!-related video games[edit]

All Yu-Gi-Oh!-related video games are produced by Konami, and almost all of them revolve around the trading card game. The English versions of video games generally use the 4Kids anime dub names, as opposed to the names in Viz's translation of the original manga, which are nearly the same as the Japanese names. At Comic-Con 2006 Konami announced that the Yu-Gi-Oh video games had sold a total of 17.5 million copies worldwide.[verification needed] Each game generally includes a few promotional cards (usually three) for use with the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG.

Save for the GX-based games, the Japanese Game Boy Advance games with "Expert" or "International" in the title follow the rules of the OCG/TCG much more closely than the ones without. As well, "International" versions generally have multiple languages on all versions, and all versions of a given "International" title can play against each other via game link.

Duel Terminals[edit]

Duel Terminals are arcade machines developed by Konami in which players can duel against characters from the various anime series using touch screen controls. Players can scan some of their real world cards to add them to their virtual deck, but only the cards given out by the Duel Terminals themselves. There are some changes to the rules in order to suit arcade play.

  • Players start with 4000 Life Points.

Later installments of the Duel Terminal adds Action Duels, which involve minigames played using the touch screen and a large button. Also, in the standard duel, hitting the button during the draw phase increases Destiny Points which, when a specific quota is filled, activates a Destiny Scan, which lets the player scan a card directly to their hand. Originally available in Japan, the Duel Terminals were released in arcades throughout North America in February 2010.

Appearance in Other Games[edit]

Yugi Mutou appears as a playable character in Ganbarion's Jump Super Stars and Jump Ultimate Stars for the Nintendo DS. Both games were only released in Japan due to differing licenses between the represented Shōnen Jump franchises outside of Japan.
