All the Yu-Gi-Oh! links you need. | The Irish Duelist

All the Yu-Gi-Oh! links you need.

Every so often I get messages from returning Duelists who are looking for forums or sites to help them get back up to speed with the game and find out what's changed since they last played at an event. Usually I send out a few quick links to the main forums but I felt it would be easier (and better for all involved) if there was a more permanent place to link people to, hence why I've put this list of top Yu-Gi-Oh! sites together.

The Irish Duelist's essential list of top Yu-Gi-Oh! sites

This resource is a list of the major forums, news sites, blogs, official pages and other related locations for all the Yu-Gi-Oh! content you need. It is by no means a 100% comprehensive list as the Internet is a vast place and there are several good sites out there that haven't been mentioned, but if you head to these sites you'll have a solid knowledge base to go from. Also, you don't have t follow all of these sites so feel free to pick out your favourites and go from there.

Official pages:
These sites are run by Konami Digital Entertainment, and are 100% official. Anything you read on these pages can be considered to be 100% accurate and should be the first place you go to if you hear a rumour about an upcoming event or product.

Forums (major):
These are the top Yu-Gi-Oh! forums to go to and discuss the game with others. Some of these are more suited to casual players and beginners, while others are environments and geared more towards competitive play.


*Warning: contains mature content.

Forums (country-specific):
The major forums take in users from all over the world, with the majority of them being North American. Several countries outside of the region (especially European countries) have their own specific forums for users to join if they want to chat with Duelists closer to home.

News sites:
News spreads fast in the world of Yu-Gi-Oh! and these unofficial sites tend to cover as much as possible. I also post the most interesting news I find here on The Irish Duelist to help keep you all updated on what's happening elsewhere. Please note that information from these sites isn't always 100% reliable so check up on the official sites from Konami if you have any doubts (please note that anything I post on The Irish Duelist is reliably accurate unless clearly stated).

Reference sites:
These sites and pages can serve as reference material should you need to look up a card effect or a specific ruling. Bear in mind that like the news sites above, any unofficial site may not be entirely accurate with the information it provides.
