Speed Duel playmats will be awarded to participants during the event!

Speed Dueling is easy to learn, and is based on the ruleset found in the Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links video game. Whether this is your first time playing a physical card game, or you’re looking to take your Duel Links knowledge to the real world, Speed Dueling is your gateway to Yu-Gi-Oh!

  • Speed Dueling is a specialized version of the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME.
  • 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.
