Yugioh Trade Cards Online

Yugioh, Trade Cards Online?

If you're a big fan of Yugioh, as I'm not, you probably already know what I'm about to tell you. Millions of people, some of whom have girlfriends, know that the correct spelling is actually Yu-Gi-Oh, but it doesn't matter how you spell it as long as you trade the cards online. Trading the cards online is the 42nd most fun thing you can do with a trading card, close to moving up to 41, but there are risks that should be avoided in order to participate in this activity. Spellcastor Decks can also be traded.

Yugi, a fictional teenage human, is a pretend person who is supposedly in high school. There's no actual Yugi, although some Yugioh players want to believe he attends their school and will be waiting for them on the playground, but you can get Yugi costumes at many reputable costume stores. Dressing up like Yugi is the 16th most fun thing you can do on Halloween.

What's Going on in Yugi's World

Yugi grew up and ran for mayor of his adopted home town, Clarinet, which is just down the road from Satellite and has cheaper apartments to rent, but he returns to Satellite quite often. Many of his friends still live in Satellite, mostly in their parents basements, but they enjoy attending community college on scholarship. Yugi possesses a close acquaintance called Nimbu who has three eyebrows and only eats shredded wheat on Tuesdays.

Our Friend Yugi no longer rivals his long-time rival Seto Kaiba, who gave him a hard way to go in many episodes, because they both quested after the same watermelon at the farmer's market only to have it snatched away at the last moment by the Evil Farmer-San. This episode caused them to reconsider their relationship in the light of eternal struggle for agriculture, which they had never given much serious thought to, and drew them together into a bond of friendship. Neither one of them likes Jack Atlas very much any more.

What happens next?

As we all know, the Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game represents a Japanese collectible card battle game developed, designed, and published by the Konami corporation. Konami makes a lot of yen from Yugi spin-offs and they welcome every cent of it into their massive corporate headquarters shaped like a piggy bank. Yu-Gi-Oh! players, those who trade the cards and battle with each other, all dream of pillgramaging to see the pig and drop coins into it's accessible snout.

So, as far as we know, New Domino City and Satellite have reconciled, probably because they already share a marshmallow spring and neither city has a budget to effectively control imminent cicada infestations. Regardless of the motivation, Yugi and his mates may now travel to each other's parents' basements without hiring Singers to protect them. It's all good. Of course, this will change as sales of the online trading cards begin to drop.

Star Strike Blast is Important

In 2010, Konami released over 4,500 trading cards under the enveloping title "Star Strike Blast." Players jumped in with both feet and also their credit cards, which turned out to be more useful for purchasing the trading cards than anyone's feet. These cards are set in a world that happens after the Duelist Revolution but before they ran out of Diet Dr. Pepper at IHOP. No one actually owns all 4,500 trading cards in the same place because they are constantly trading them online and also in-person, which makes Takahashi swell with pride and joy because he wants players to socialize while participating in his game.

The Japanese name for Star Strike Blast is "スターストライク・ブラスト", which translates roughly to the street address of Takahashi's dentist's dog walker and also looks really good when tattooed on an Asyyyriak, if you can catch one and make it sit in the chair long enough.

Places to Trade Online

You can trade at tradecardsonline.com/im/selectCard/game_id/14 and you definitely already know that you have to put "http://www." in front of that site, or not. When you visit that site you can search for cards that are trade-able and you can also read reviews of the cards from other people who also probably do not know any girls. There are only, like, 5 card reviews and the best one is definitely Caius the Shadow Monarch or maybe Time Wizard, or Bob. It's hard to decide between those. You can also trade Spellcastor Decks here, I think.

If you find yourself to be blindingly stupid, you can look at a site that explains how to trade cards online. Look at http://www.ehow.com/how_6689720_trade-yu_gi_oh-cards-online.html for an example of this. Somebody wrote it.

What Happens After a Trade?

Following a trade, you must get your card to the person who traded with you. You will almost certainly have to go outside, at least to walk to the mailbox. The big bright thing up in the sky is called 'The Sun.' Don't stare directly at it, but don't be too afraid of it, either. Your parents probably have some stamps.

Later today when I get back from work, your hub has inspired me to write a hub. This was a great hub, it is even more enjoyable when you see what your hub inspired me to write about!

I agree with David, my grandson is a fanatical fan of Yu gi ho cards. I am always being coerced into buying cards and paying as much again for the shipping! Hopefully he'll move on to collecting something else soon and he can sell his huge collection, wanna buy some?
