Judge Program Forum Rulings
|These Ruling(s) have not been confirmed as applicable to the TCG.[Notes 1]|
- If a card must be shown to the opponent, like by the effect of "Mind Crush", "Trap Dustshoot", or by a "search effect" like "Sangan", it becomes face up, it is considered public knowledge, and as such the opponent is entitled to read the card. The opponent should do this in a timely manner, and not delay the game.
- Both "Rai-Mei" and "Raimei" have their names pronounced "raimei", so if you wish to declare either card with "Mind Crush", then you must further describe the card to be declared until your opponent understands which card you are declaring. For example, you could declare "the Monster Card raimei" or "the Spell Card raimei", etc.
Mentions in Other Rulings
- Gravekeeper's Watcher: The effect of "Gravekeeper's Watcher" can be chained to the activation of "Mind Crush".
