Featured Duels

Note: These Duels use a special gameplay in order to make it simpler for the children, which makes the Monster Cards have no effects whatsoever.

Yuya Sakaki vs. Noboru Gongenzaka

Duel already in progress. Yuya controls "Performapal Elephammer" (2600/1800), "Performapal Whip Snake" (1700/900) and "Performapal Hip Hippo" (800/800) all in Attack Position and has 500 Life Points.

Turn 2: Shingo

He also activates an Action Card, "Double Bull Shower", which decreases the DEF of "Stamp Turtle" by 1000 (1800 → 800). "Stamp Turtle" is destroyed (Yuya 3000 → 1500).
