Duelists can now stack their decks with a collection of booster packs designed to increase the complexity and power during monster Dueling matches. The Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME Collectible Tins offers an assortment of the game's top-selling, and newly-retired Booster Packs, which include Metal Raiders, Magic Ruler, Pharaoh's Servant, Labrinth of Nightmare, and Legend of Blue Eyes White Dragon. In addition, each of the six unique tins will include one variant card.
The release of the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME Collectible Tins will be the last time the newly-retired Booster Packs (Metal Raiders, Magic Ruler, Pharaoh's Servant, Labrinth of Nightmare, and Legend of Blue Eyes White Dragon) will be available in retail and hobby outlets nationwide.
Last holiday season, the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME Collectible Tins earned top spots on the hottest Christmas wish lists at KB Toys, and was listed as one of the most highly sought-after toys in Toy Wishes Magazine, Business Week, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today.
Among Duelists, the demand for booster sets has continued to increase as more duelists join the game and compete in the Duelist King Tournament, held in neighborhood hobby stores across North America. Currently, more than 500,000 duelists are registered in more than 1,500 stores across North America. Upper Deck Entertainment's recent Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG World Championship also attracted more than 10,000 attendees at Madison Square Garden.
During the game, players duel each other by summoning monsters and activating spell and trap cards. Using a Starter Deck and/or booster sets, Duelists collect cards to play their hands against other duelists. Duelists with well-constructed Decks, powerful monsters, solid strategy and a little good fortune are the winners in the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME.
