Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME Official Rules Update – April 1st, 2020


Hello everybody! ‘Tis the season of giving, so I’m
here today to give you the lowdown on some changes to the official rules of the Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game
that will go into effect on April 1st, 2020. Currently, the rules require that any monster Summoned
from the Extra Deck must be Summoned to an Extra Monster Zone, or your Main Monster Zone that a Link Monster’s Link Arrow is pointing to. This rule is being changed for Fusion Monsters,
Synchro Monsters, and Xyz Monsters. Starting April 1st, 2020, Fusion Monsters, Synchro Monsters,
and Xyz Monsters may be Summoned to an Extra Monster Zone or any of your Main Monster Zones,
even without the aid of a Link Monster’s Link Arrows. This change will only apply to Fusion Monsters,
Synchro Monsters, and Xyz Monsters. Link Monsters and Pendulum Monsters Summoned
from the Extra Deck must still be Special Summoned to an Extra Monster Zone or your Main Monster Zone
a Link Monster’s Link Arrow is pointing to. Remember, this rule change will not
take effect until April 1st 2020, so it’s dueling as usual under the current rules until then. For now, I wish you the best of luck in your holiday Duels,
and I’ll see you again in January. Later!

  1. Konami, you guys need to re-ban/limit some cards that were brought back recently and consider unbanning Maxx C man. Not kidding at all.

  2. As for Fusion, Synchro, and Xyz Pendulum Monsters, the first time they are summoned they can go in the main monster zones, but when coming back from the extra deck they must go in the extra monster zone or to a zone a link monster points to.

  3. Question, a Fusion, Synchro or Xyz Pendulum Monster, can it be summoned to a main monster zone if it is not face up in the Extra Deck?

  4. This is a very good change for casual old me and the Gladiator Beasts. It will make it considerably easier to get the new fusion monster as well as Tamer Editor onto the field than fumbling with the Link monsters.

  5. This is the guy that made both spyral and danger!, the thanos of yugioh, he's behind some of the most perfectly balanced cards.

  6. Jeez I'm just starting to learn to play this game and there already changing the rules 🤦 like why don't they just keep the same rules instead of chaging it all the time?

  7. Yes my hero's can not be stopped. Bo longer will I infect my deck with link. Love live the good old days where u can fusion summon like 4 times in 1 move. YAY

  8. Hi. I was wondering if there were any plans for introducing text to speech functionality to digital YGO products. I’ve played the TCG and games for years and I lost my sight a few years back and I would love to play the TCG again in some capacity.
    Not sure if this was the best place to try and get Konami’s attention, but with the new updates for Link Evolution and the TCG/OCG, I wanted to try and see if I can at least get a response of some sort.

  9. KONAMI: Here is the Christmas present for you guys
    Fusion: Thanks KONAMI
    Synchro: Thanks KONAMI
    Xyz: Thanks KONAMI
    Pendulum: Am I a joke to you ?

  10. Quick question:
    The spell card "The Phantom Knights' Rank-Up-Magic Launch is currently banned, however in the Yugioh Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution game it is unlimited and useable, does this mean that we can use this card in tournaments?
    I honestly do not know and I am confused.

  11. I feel like the exclusion of pendulum monsters in the change makes the rule change unnecessarily complicated to remember

  12. Does anyone else feel like this is one big April fool's joke? I mean, I hated links as they nurfed all the decks I played but this sounds too good to be true.

  13. Thinking more about this, Konami should make it only pendulum and link monster summon to the extra zone, this give way too much of the meta decks that extra zone to work with. So I find this new method is going to make the game more broken then it already is

  14. It's like they still feel Pendulums were a Mistake, all just because they can make big boards easy. Chances are it's probably better they don't give Pendulums this. They'd ravage the meta if they did.

  15. I am à pundulum Player, i think Master rules 5 dont nerf pundulum because pendulum deck with extra don't use lot pundulum summon, is first extra. With that rules pundulum win place for pendulum summon ^^

  16. I like this change, links aren't irrelevant but they're not required to play the game anymore, so glad we're making smart decisions here, even though links are so powerful they'll probably see play over everything else, it's great to see they're fixing what was wrong
