Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game sets

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

A number of booster packs have been released for the Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game. Every set up to "Ancient Sanctuary" contained around 110 cards (some have more, some have less), but they are typically sold in nine card packs, with each package featuring at least one rare card. Every booster pack set starting with "Soul of the Duelist" contains 60 cards. The only exceptions to this are the Dark Beginnings 1 & 2, as well as Dark Revelations 1, 2, & 3, which contain cards from past booster sets. TCG booster packs contain 9 cards, and OCG boosters contain 5.

Where the starter decks are based on characters from the Yu-Gi-Oh! animated series, each booster pack has a different thematic element, which provides for new battle strategies.[citation needed]

  • Series 3: These cards have numerical set-identifiers, rather than alphabetical. The major change from Series 2 to Series 3 is the numbering system (From 2-letter abbreviation to simply 30x) and a "World Standard" layout that make OCG and TCG cards looks the same on the front (Outside of language, that is).

  • Series 4: These sets feature the same "World Standard" layout featured in Series 3. The main difference being yet another changed in the numbering system to distinguish it from different region (JP for Japanese, EN for English, etc.) - partly because Series 4 sets are released "parallelly" (Not exactly parallel due to a 3-month "delay" in TCG release) in TCG, since English sets are released in a combination of 2 Japanese sets before this series.
