You’re in exactly the right place to bolster your deck, explore through our entire catalogue of official Yu-Gi-Oh! card sets and expansions. There are four main types of Yu-Gi-Oh! cards which form the core mechanics of the trading card game, namely; Monster, Spell, Trap and Spell Speed cards. From these different cards you are able to effectively complete your phases and your turn. Monster Yu-Gi-Oh! cards are your main offensive tool and are used in the battle phase of your turn, attacking and defending from your opponent. Your turn will be indicated by orienting your card in a set direction, signalling the face-up attack position, face-up defense position or face-down defense position. Once per turn players can summon one monster from their card deck in an attempt to destroy their foe. Spell Yu-Gi-Oh! cards can either power up your monsters, destroy other cards, increase HP and bring into play a plethora of other in-game mechanics, making them absolutely critical to learn for intermediate and advanced players. Trap cards are used in response to certain situations, most often this depends on your opponent's activities. Trap Yu-Gi-Oh! cards can be used to destroy the attacking monster, negate battle or to redirect damage. However, these cards cannot be activated during the turn in which they are laid down. Trap Yu-Gi-Oh! cards
are an important facet to any player's collection as they can directly influence the focus of the game.
