Dueling 101 in Yu-Gi-Oh! GX Duel Academy

It's up to you to practice your dueling skills, strengthen your deck with more cards, and pass skill-testing quizzes. You can also trade cards and duel with friends by using a GBA link cable!

A+ Dueling in Yu-Gi-Oh! GX Duel Academy

The nicest part about this Yu-Gi-Oh! game is that it's a lot easier to get extra cards! Plus, there's a cool schedule you can use to plan your duels at Duel Academy, and you can email other duelists when you want to duel against them. The skill-testing quizzes are also a great way to prove your Yu-Gi-Oh! mastery.

Flunking out of the Yu-Gi-Oh! GX Duel Academy

The biggest pain in the butt with this game is that, unless you know how to play the Yu-Gi-Oh! card game, it takes a while to learn to duel properly. Be prepared to get clobbered by your opponents for a while. There's a tutorial to teach you how to play, but it's about as exciting as dry toast.
