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. 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).
