how would u know what cards r in there hands

  • You would either guess from what they've previously used or use another cards effect to find out what is in their hand. For example, if you used Compulsory Evacuation Device on a card you could see and then activated Mind Crush you would know for sure at least one card your opponent has. There are probably better example/combos though. BlueEyesWhiteDragon 08:36, January 20, 2010 (UTC)

Ruling via email

Here is a ruling acquired via email:

Sent: Monday, May 17, 2010 9:25 AM


Subject: Mind Crush

My question is: Is the player that activated Mind Crush permitted to check the opponents hand to verify that there are no copies of the named card (or no more copies of the named card)? My understanding is that the player is not allowed to look at the hand, but I'm being told by "official" source that you are allowed to. Thanks

We have recently received a new ruling that says the following:

“If the maximum legally allowed number of copies of the declared card cannot be verified as public knowledge, you may ask your opponent to verify their hand.”

This cards should be shown quickly so as not to interrupt the flow of the duel and the opponent should never handle the cards. The intent of this ruling is to show that an effect has been successfully completed, not to reveal private information to an opponent or allow him to take extensive time strategizing over it.

Can I add this to the ruling section? Chinhodado (talkcontribs) 16:46, April 11, 2012 (UTC)
