    2. Basics and controls
    
    ===========================================================================
    
    This game is yet another addition to the YGO series on the GBA. The game
    plays like the others and uses the characters from the new YGO anime: YGO
    GX. You play the role of a new student who becomes friends with the Slifer
    Red students: Jaden, Syrus and Chumley and you work your way up the ladder
    by winning duels and doing well in the exams. The school system in the game
    works like this: there are 3 dorm rooms representing the 3 egyptian god 
    cards... Slifer Red, Ra Yellow, Obelisk blue. Slifer is the lowest, Obelisk
    is the highest ranked (actually the highest should've been Ra since it's 
    the strongest of the god cards but Kaiba from the old anime is the guy who
    founded the school so he made the highest rank be that of his egyptian god
    card, Obelisk).

    3. Newbie
    
    ===========================================================================
    
    This section is for those that are new to the series and the card game
    itself.
    
    
    3a. Intro
    
    YGO is a trading card game (the obvious must be pointed out >_>) that takes
    strategy and luck to win. The game is played out by using cards correctly
    and accordingly to what they state. The aim of the game is to play until
    1 duelist's life points has reached Zero, Nothing, Zip, Nada, Rien. However
    there are other ways to win. The 2 other ways to win are:
    
    * Having all 5 pieces of the mighty "Exodia the forbidden one" in your hand
    * Playing Destiny Board and successfully playing the other 4 spell cards 
    that spell out "FINAL" with destiny board.
    
    I wouldn't recommend either method unless you're playing a game WITHOUT use
    of the Forbidden/Limited rules. The Exodia pieces and the Destiny Board 
    letters are all limited to having 1 of each card in your deck.
    
    Next, your dueling deck. Your dueling deck must consist of at least 40 cards
    and no more than 60. At the same time, you must follow the Forbidden/limited
    rules so you won't have an "Uber and unfair deck".
    
    The cards are divided into categories, attributes and types.
    
    
    3b. Categories
    
    Categories: Just 3, these are Monsters, Spell and Traps.
    
    Monsters are creatures varying in different types and attributes that can
    affect gameplay. You are the king and these creatures are your knights that
    follow your orders of attacking the opposing castle which in this case would
    be your opponent. The stars on the cards represent the monster level. If a
    monster is level 4 or lower, it can summoned or set (put in face down 
    defense position) without tribute a monster. 5-6 requres 1 tribute and
    the higher ones require 2 monsters. Monsters have attack and defense points.
    Attack determines just how well the monster can do attacking and destroying
    opposing monsters. Defense determines how well it can defend you, the higher
    the defense power, the stronger your opponent's monster has to be to get
    past it. Some monsters have effects to expand their usefullness.
    
    For example: The monster "Exiled Force" is a level 4 monster with 1000
    points for both attack and defense. It makes up for its weak power with the
    ability to destroy itself along with another monster on the field.
    
    Spells are cards that do many different things. They can help your monsters,
    protect you or annoy your opponent. They're divided into types and their
    activation must follow the Spell Speed rules.
    
    Traps are cards that do effects like magic cards. The difference is that 
    they are mostly used against your opponent. Their activation requires that
    you first place them face down on your field during your turn and activate
    them after your turn ends. They also follow the Spell Speed rules but they
    start at level 2.
    
    
    
    3c. Attributes
    
    Attributes:
    
    Monsters are divided into 6 attributes: Earth, Water, Fire, Wind, Light, and
    Dark. This affects their compatibility with other cards as well as their
    weaknesses. Water monsters make good use of the spell cards known as 
    "A legendary ocean". If you are using a deck with many water monsters, this
    card will help them greatly.
    
    
    
    
    3da. Monster Types
    
    
    Types: All cards are divided into types, let's go into monsters first.
    
    Like attributes, types also affect the compability of monsters with other
    cards and their weaknesses but due to the fact that there are so many types
    of cards, these are more specific than attributes. The monsters are divided
    into these types...
    
    Dragon - Zombie - Warrior - Spellcaster - Beast-warrior - Beast - Winged
    Beast - Fiend - Fairy - Insect - Dinosaur - Reptile - Fish - Sea Serpent -
    Machine - Thunder - Aqua - Pyro - Rock - Plant.
    
    Plus some others like Spirit, Fusion, Effect and Ritual.
    
    Ritual are blue cards, summoned by Ritual spells and tribute of monsters
    that the sum of their levels is equal or greater than that of the ritual
    monster from your field or hand.
    
    Fusion are Violet cards, summoned by combining the 2 correct monsters and
    using spells such as Polymerization. They can also be summon by their own
    effect (VWXYZ monsters) or by effects of monsters like "Cyber Stein".
    
    Spirit monsters are monster that are returned to its owner's hand at the
    end of a turn unless "Spiritual Energy Settle Machine" is face up on the
    field.
    
    
    3db. Spell types
    
    Now for the spells and traps.
    
    
    Spells Consists of Normal, Continuous, Equip, Field, Quick play and
    Ritual.
    
    Normal Spells are just placed into a Spell/Trap zone to do their thing
    and disappear (depending on what the card does)
    
    Equip Spells are placed onto monsters for support or hurt them.
    
    Continous Spells remain on the field until they are destroyed. Their
    effect remains until they are gone.
    
    Field Spells are placed on the "Field" card zone. These power up monsters
    and do other things but they are destroyed normally and when another 
    field spell is placed.
    
    Quick play Spells are the only spells that are not on Spell Speed LV 1.
    You can play them like a normal spell or like a trap.
    
    Ritual Spells are used to special summon Ritual monsters.
    
    
    
    
    3dc. Trap types
    
    Traps... Traps consist of Normal, Counter and Continuous.
    
    Normal traps are placed face down and activated later after your turn
    has ended. Their speed is level 2.
    
    Counter Traps are usually cards that negate and destroy other cards.
    They're the only cards that are LV3 and can only be countered by 
    counter traps.
    
    Continuous Traps work just like the spells... The activation is the
    only difference. Their speed is level 2.
    
    
    
    
    3e. Phases
    
    Start of game: You start the game by deciding who goes first, then draw
    5 cards from your deck and take turns playing.
    
    A player's turn is divided into Phases... Draw, Standby, Main 1, Battle
    Main 2, End.
    
    Draw Phase is when you draw 1 card, a trap card set in the last turn can
    be activated at this point.
    
    Standby Phase is only used for effects of cards, nothing else.
    
    Main phase 1 is when you do most of the essential things. Summoning
    monsters, playing spells, setting traps. 1 normal summon can be done
    per turn. Main 1 and 2 are the only time a normal summon can be done.
    
    Battle Phase is when you do battle using your monsters against your
    opponent. Here you may activate trap cards to mess with your opponents
    monsters and prevent him from dealing damage to you. 
    
    Main phase 2 is basically Main phase 1. Thing is that you can't go into
    battle again. This phase is best used to set cards if your opponent 
    screwed you in the battle phase.
    
    
    
    
    3f. Summons
    
    A summon is when a monster enters the playing field. There are different
    ways to summon a monster.
    
    Normal summon is when you place a level 4 or lower monster on the field
    in face up attack position. 1 normal summon per turn is the limit here.
    
    Tribute summon is a normal summon at the cost of tributing 1 monster 
    that's already on your field. As I explained before, this is for high
    level monsters. levels 5-6 require 1 tribute and all above level require
    2.
    
    Special Summon is when you use a ritual, spell, trap, fusion or monster
    effect to place a monster on the field. Monster that are special summoned
    CANNOT be placed face down.
    
    Flip summon is considered a Special summon. It's when you place a "Set"
    monster into face-up attack position. Some monsters have "Flip effects"
    which are activated at this time or when attack by an opposing monster
    (Unless that monster is Sasuke Samurai or a Mystic Swords Lv?)

    4. Walkthrough
    
    ===========================================================================
    
    The part that covers the duelists, Written examinations, Practical exmans
    and timed duels. Let's start with the duelists first.
    
    
    NOTE: I'm probably missing a few cards so this won't be exact, it's meant
    to give you an idea of what you should expect. Also, I will not list the
    "Staple" cards (Cards such as Torrential Tribute) as you should expect
    such cards from everyone.
    
    This list may suck and be inaccurate so you may want to look at TSmith's
    FAQ for better and more accurate stuff there seeing as how it's more 
    focused. These are just the duelists you've seen duel in the Anime and a
    couple more. I won't list them all.

    Well that's it, I didn't put much effort here since I got tired of playing
    the game in just 2 days. I continued on till I had completed the game 
    despite getting bored. I could add a couple more things if asked and maybe
    a section for themed decks submitted by readers (if there are any).
