Without further adieu… here we go!

Hi It’s time for part two of my Yu-Gi-Oh assignment. I was asked to talk about how I got into the game and maybe even a little about how the game is played. So here we go.

I originally got into the game because I watched the show.  When I found out about the card game I went for it almost right away. I saved up and bought the Elemental Hero themed Starter Deck.

Pretty soon after that I went to a sleepaway, week-long, summer camp at Camp Mystic Lake at (no surprise) Lake Mystic. I don’t know why but I brought my deck with me. We had a free hour after lunch to roam wherever we wanted, go to the archery range, swim in the lake, take a jog in the forest paths, or whatever. On the first day I went right outside the dining hall near gaga ball and carpet ball and played with the one friend I had that played Yu-Gi-Oh, too. But, after one game we went off to play some other games. So he left for gaga and I went over to play some carpet ball.

But, on the way there I was stopped by a kid from the Ottawa cabin, which is the only other boys tween cabin. He asked me what I was playing so I told him and he wanted to know how to play.  I taught him and we got about halfway through a game before free period ended. We agreed to meet there the next day. The same day, right after free period we had a time of rest to do something quiet in our cabin, so I thought I would try to teach some of my cabin mates how to play. So I did, and each free period and time of rest I taught one more person how to play. Eventually I had about ten people I’d taught to play the game.

What I’m trying to say with this is that it’s not to hard to get people to play the game with. Just get some decks and teach your friends!

Well thanks for reading and I hope you’ll check in next time for me to wrap up this Yu-Gi-Oh trilogy by talking about my experiences at my first tournament.
