Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game.
Yu-Gi-Oh! Official Card Game (abbreviated as "OCG") is the version of the Yu-Gi-Oh! card game manufactured by Konami. It is played mainly in Japan, South Korea, and other parts of Asia including China mainland, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand.
OCG cards are printed exclusively in Japanese (JP), Korean (KR) and Simplified Chinese (SC) now. It has previously been printed in English (referred to as Asian-English) as well as in Traditional Chinese (TC); despite being part of the OCG, Asian-English cards have "Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game" printed on their backings, though with a different logo.
Starting from Duel Starter Deck and onward, the OCG has started to be officially printed and distributed in Traditional Chinese.However, the Traditional Chinese version has already been cancelled due to inferior quality. Starting from Starter Deck 2020 and Structure Deck: The Blue-Eyed Dragon's Thundering Descent, the OCG has started to be officially printed and distributed in Simplified Chinese.
TCG cards are not legal in OCG tournaments. Due to OCG cards having different backings, if a player chooses to use a mixture, they must use protective sleeves that cover the back of the cards.
OCG tournaments are divided into three classes: Expert, which has no age restriction, Regular: for high school students and Challenge, for secondary school students.
Korean cards are only printed in South Korea, and distributed by Daewon Media. Asian-English, Japanese-Asian are distributed in other parts of Asia by Konami of Hong Kong. Simplified Chinese are distributed in China mainland by Windo Entertainment.
The age range difference between the OCG and TCG is that the OCG is stated to be for ages 12 and up as mentioned on the back of every booster pack, starter deck, structure deck and tin, implying the game mainly targets early teen players. Opposed from the TCG stating for ages 6 and up.
