Yu-Gi-Oh! Review


OK
For those unfamiliar with Yu-Gi-Oh!, it means "King of Games" in Japanese, and the game it refers to is Duel Monsters, a card game in which two players compete to subtract the most life points from their opponent. Little monsters appear on each card, and when the game begins, the monsters come to life and duke it out until one player's life points reach zero. Of course, there really is a card game called Yu-Gi-Oh!, but if you decide to start playing, don't expect the monster to come alive like they do on the anime television show.

I have a younger brother who has succumbed to the Yu-Gi-Oh! craze (just as he succumbed to the Pokemon craze a few years ago), therefore, I am familiar with both the anime cartoon and trading card game. I am not sure which came first, the TV show or the cards, but both are quite complicated for their preteen target audience. Parents should delight in how the game familiarizes kids with elements of ancient history, religious philosophy, and basic mathematics. Kids who understand the game in its philosophical entirety should have no problem understanding similar subjects in school.
