Hey everyone and welcome to the newest thing that allows people to get dueling online! Read the rules carefully please!



1. You must announce what card you are playing.

2. You must announce what phases you are entering.

3. You must ALWAYS include the image of EVERY card you are playing in your post including facedown cards otherwise your move doesn't count.

5. No editing your posts to try to change your move if someone else has already made their move.

6. Custom Made Cards are also allowed.

7. You must take your turn within 24 Hours of when your opponent took their turn or it automatically counts as a forfeit. You must also finish the move you're making within 24 Hours.

8. You can choose to play with either 2000, 4000, 8000, 12000 or 16000 Life Points as long as both players agree to Duel on those terms.

9. If your opponent does try to include the card image or card images but they still don't show up through no fault of your opponent give him/her a chance to edit his/her post so the images are included and do show up.

10. If something comes up and you are unable to finish the Duel with your opponent you may forfeit anytime.

11. Be careful when mixing themes. Only use themes that do go well together. Make sure that what you're doing makes sense. And don't go against your Deck Theme.

12. No unbeatable combos allowed.

13. No FTKs Allowed! Play like a Real Duelist!

14. No stealing other people's combos that were used here.

15. If you're gonna use customs make sure that their description matches the actual TCG gameplay terms that real cards have.

16. If you're gonna use customs make sure that they are not something that wouldn’t exist in the real game due to simple mechanics such as Level 4 Monsters with 2500+ ATK for example.

17. When posting the card images make sure they are big enough that their description is readable.

18. If you're gonna change the type of Deck you're using be sure to say so first.

22. The Champion is the one who sets the terms and decides who goes first. (When challenging The Champion)

23. You can choose to play with either 40, 50, 60 or 80 Cards. And if you exceed your chosen amount of cards and cannot draw during your draw phase, you lose.

24. When you quote a long post and/or a post full of images please use Spoiler Tags when doing so.

25. If you have a question regarding whether you or your opponent's move is legal or not VM me.

26. When you request a duel with someone, you must use this template:

God Cards:

First Player:

Number of Cards per Deck:

Other conditions(luck based cards, handicaps, etc.):


Rules for when you are Dueling someone:


1. You MUST state the phase you are in before moving to it. This includes the draw and standby phase, even if nothing happens during the latter.


2. You MUST post the image of EVERY card involved in a duel. This includes cards that are discarded or milled. If you do not do this, you will have to edit your post. And you will get a strike. And as a rule, if you make 3 moves that must be redone, you lose.


3. At the end of your turn, you MUST post your field, including your monster zones, field zone, and spell and trap zone. And you must also state how many cards are in your hand at The Draw Phase and End Phase because this too is supposed to be public knowledge.


4. Upon the activation of ANY Spell card during your turn or Trap card during either player's turn, or Effect Monsters effect during either players turn, if your opponent has the ability to chain one of their facedown cards to it, you MUST ask for and wait for a response. If your opponent fails to respond with a chain within 24 hours, the opponent may NOT chain to that card, and you can continue your turn. For this reason, it is recommended that both participants be online during a duel, so they can respond with "yes, I will chain" or "no, I will not chain".


5. The source of all Card Rulings will be the official Konami website for The Duelist Genesis onward, and Netrep for Legend of Blue Eyes up to duelist Genesis. These are reliable sources.


6. I will respond to any out-of-line arguments whether they involve me or not over a duel with an immediate duel termination and a game loss to whoever was the antagonist in my opinion.


7. As a new rule, When summoning a monster you must state the way in which you are summoning it. Normal Summon, Flip Summon, Special Summon, Fusion Summon, Synchro Summon, Ritual Summon etc.


Rules For The Use Of Customs:


1. No Godmodding. Translation: No making Godly, Immortal, or Impervious Cards! Everyone card must have a weakness or drawback, no matter how strong it is. This is a staple rule, Making/Using Unbeatable Cards and/or Cards with Infinite ATK/DEF will not be tolerated. Doing so will result in a game loss.


2. They can't be ridiculously overpowered.


3. They can't be just plain cheating.


4. They can't be a costless version of a card that already exists.


5. They CAN have Fake Types. But they have to make sense like The 22 Legal Types:


Aqua. Beast. Beast-Warrior Dinosaur. Divine-Beast. Dragon. Fairy. Fiend. Fish. Insect. Machine. Plant. Pyschic. Pyro. Reptile. Rock. Sea Serpent. Spellcaster. Thunder. Warrior. Winged-Beast. Zombie.

For facedown card images use these:








For the smaller field images go to yugioh wikia, find the card you want and click gallery at the bottom, a new page should open with smaller versions somewhere.

Right click one and go to properties, the image address will appear, then just copy and paste it between img tags like normally.


And for those who want to know where to go to make cards make them right here on the site! They must go throught my aproval before being used in the Arena though

Have Fun Dueling Everyone!


Anime Arena Characters:

Yugi Moto (~Hero of Sky~ Link)


Keep in mind that you do not have to RP and be an Anime Character if you don't want to. This is entirely just for fun. You may only join as yourself and use whatever Deck you want to if you prefer.


And for future reference, There's a REASON why this Duel Arena uses a different banlist than Konami's. It's because Konami's list only balances the game according to the random card draw. the random card draw doesn't exist here so some changes have to be made. All cards that allow a player's hand to be seen must be Banned. Because with the random card draw not existing here that gives unacceptable advantage in this Arena.


The default list for random draw Duels is Konami's list.


Lastly, No action is required if you wish to join. Feel free to drop right in! :D

Wall of Text. Wall of Text. Wall of Text. IT BUUURRRNNNSSS! Sorry but this reminds me of a "Role Play Duel" where Moves are made up as you go along.


Oh and Exodia is not banned? Ahem.


(I hold all five pieces of Exodia *Pastes Images of all 5 Cards + a random one*)

And that's why I said no godmodding in the rules and no FTK's lol


For this:



For Anime Cards and IRL cards:



This is why I said it was 50/50... Granted, this is -5 ><

Nyeh I was simply bored and decided to do this. Oh yesh, and there is a Random Draw duel mode.
