Booster Pack

A Booster Pack (Japanese: ブースターパック Būsutā Pakku) is a pack of Yu-Gi-Oh! cards from one of the Booster Sets, the main sets from where new cards are released, usually every three to four months. Booster Packs can be bought at most game stores and at some general/department stores.


OCG Booster Packs contain 5 cards each, whereas TCG packs contain 9 cards.


Each main series Booster Pack is guaranteed a Rare, 7 Commons, and a ninth card which will either be another Common or a foil card (Super Rare rarity or higher).

As of Breakers of Shadow, the ninth card is guaranteed to be at least a Super Rare, with a 1:6 chance of it being an Ultra Rare and a 1:12 chance of it being a Secret Rare. This also applies to side series sets such as High-Speed Riders and Wing Raiders. Previously, the chances of a single pack containing a Super Rare was 1:5, with Ultra Rare and Secret Rare chances being 1:12 and 1:23; in some older historical sets, the latter two chances were 1:24 and 1:31 instead.[citation needed]


OCG Booster Pack rarity ratios are currently undocumented.

Booster Packs can be obtained by defeating opponents (e.g. Yu-Gi-Oh! The Eternal Duelist Soul) or by purchasing them at an in-game shop (e.g. Yu-Gi-Oh! Tag Force).
