YuGiOh anime and manga that were originally created as fictitious games for the series and was later turned into real games or video games Card game BlueEyes White Dragon The YuGiOh anime and manga series introduces an original card game created by Takahashi Different names can be used to refer to the game depending on where it appears Magic & Wizards M&W the original name of the card game used in the original YuGiOh Japanese and English versions manga YuGiOh R and in the Japanese version of YuGiOh GX In the case of the English manga the game is renamed Duel Monsters in laterreleased chapters Duel Monsters used in Toei Animations YuGiOh anime the second series YuGiOh anime Japanese and English versions manga English version only and film The name is introduced to replace Magic & Wizards probably due to its similarity to Magic The Gathering YuGiOh Official Card Game Duel Monsters YuGiOh OCG the original name of the real YuGiOh card game released by Konami used mostly in Asia YuGiOh Trading Card Game YuGiOh TCG the name used in locations where Upper Deck Entertainment distributed the YuGiOh OCG whose distribution has since been taken over by Konami History Designed by Kazuki Takahashi Magic & Wizards M&W is a popular card game worldwide Compared with its predecessor M&W was very simple when it was first introduced in the manga there were only two types of cards Monster & Magic Cards the result of a monster battle only relied on the Attack and Defense Points of the monsters and the effects of Magic Cards which only appeared occasionally According to the author the game was designed as such because he felt that the rules of Magic the Gathering were too complicated and he wanted to create something similar but simpler The original plan of Takahashi was to phase out M&W which took him only one night to design in just two episodes After the first appearance of the game in the manga in Volume 2 Duel 9 the reader response on it was enormous and Shonen Jump started getting calls from readers who wanted to know more about the game Takahashi realized that he had hit on something so he modified the storyline to feature more of the card game With the advance of the manga the game continued to evolve becoming more complicated The similarities between the games of note card design brown with an oval on back effects and terminology discarding graveyard sacrifice usage and pictures including occult or religious based icons alluding to the early days of Magic The Gathering are all there The name of Magics creator is mirrored through the creator of Duel Monsters Pegasus J Crawford Maximillion Pegasus in the English versions whom both share the same number of letters Official Card Game and Trading Card Game Main articles Bandai OCG OCG

cards in the first YuGiOh video game YuGiOh Duel Monsters These cards are not to be mixed up with those of YuGiOh OCG released later by the same company The two versions are different in terms of design with the looks of the former closer to those in the manga to an extent that their effect texts are all directly quoted from the manga Only 10 cards were released for this version and Konami didnt have any gaming rules for these cards as they were intended for collection purpose only They cannot be used in the laterreleased YuGiOh OCG The third version YuGiOh OCG was first released on
