  • Speed Dueling features 4 basic card types: Monster Cards, Spell Cards, Trap Cards and Skill Cards.
  • The goal is to Summon powerful monsters, power them up with Spell or Trap Cards, and battle your opponent.
  • Skill Cards let you become your favorite Yu-Gi-Oh! character, and give you special abilities to use in your Duels!
  • Both players start with 4,000 Life Points. Reduce your opponent’s Life Points to 0 to win the Duel!

Speed Duel cards are usable in the regular Yu-Gi-Oh! game, but not vice-versa.
