  • Reward is multiplied by 5 if you win in less than 5 turns.
  • Reward is multiplied by 10 if you win on turn 2 going second.

Change Activation Timing[]

This feature enables you to prevent the game to ask you if you want to activate a card's effect in every possible situation. i.e. you can to choose only to be asked to activate "Scapegoat" during the opponent's Battle Phase. Therefore, choose "option" in the PDA screen and choose "Confirm Activation" to be manual. Now if you select a card while in the Deck construction menu you see an extra icon for the activation timing of this card. If you choose this icon you can unselect all cases with the L-button and then only select the activation times you want.


The game includes characters from Yu-Gi-Oh! GX anime series.
