Yu-Gi-Oh! cards are part of a Japanese collectible trading card game developed by fantasy game and series designer Konami. Yu-Gi-Oh! cards have been developed as part of an adaption to the comic book series and the Nihon Ad Systems animated series Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters. The way that Yu-Gi-Oh! cards are played is based around the plot and storyline of the series, however, the actual game and rules are more balanced than that on the programme.
