Attention Yu-Gi-Oh players: We know how much you love the OTS packs you get from playing in our tournaments, but with recent events we haven’t been able to hold any tournaments. We don’t want you to miss out though, so our friends at Konami have announced a special promotion!
For OTS pack 13 Konami is allowing players to get some just for picking up new cards!
If you purchase $15 (before tax) in Yu-Gi-Oh product you get an OTS 13 pack too! For a $30 purchase you can get two!
This may not be combined with the Yu-Gi-Oh Lost Art promotion, so if you’re at $30 you can make a choice between a Lost Art Card or 2 OTS 13 packs. It’s up to you! (Or go big, spend $60 and get 2 OTS and a Lost Art!)
What can you buy to participate in the promotion? Any new Yu-Gi-Oh product like decks, booster packs, special edition sets are all eligible – as long as it adds up to the right amount.
This promotion is only good on OTS 13 and is while supplies last, so make sure you stop in!

Play at Gnome Games every week!
Join the Gnomes every week as we play Yu-Gi -Oh! This weekend we have a full lineup of Ignition Assault Sneak Peek events and you can always see the complete Yu-Gi-Oh Calendar of events here too!
Gnome Games brings the hot new set for Yu-Gi-Oh to the tables for the Ignition Assault Sneak Peek January 25 & 26.
Gnome Games brings the hottest games to the tables, and we are kicking 2020 off with the Yu-Gi-Oh! Ignition Assault Sneak Peek Weekend January 25 – 26.
Humanity’s greatest fear has been realized! Dueling A.I.s have become sentient and organized their own army to take the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME by storm in Ignition Assault! Winter 2020’s 100-card booster set heats things up with Ai’s “@Ignister” cards from the climax of Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS, multiple brand-new strategies, new cards for popular strategies, and powerful, general use cards that every Duelist will want to add to their arsenal!
Be among the first to check out Ignition Assault when you go to a Sneak Peek at Gnome Games!
Gnome Games will be randomly handing out exclusive Ignition Assault Game Mats at the Sneak Peek, as door prizes while you play, and 1 for winning a tournament on the day of the Ignition Assault Sneak Peek at Gnome Games Green Bay West!
We will assist players in seating during the Open Dueling to ensure all players play through the event. Open Dueling matches will be 40 minute rounds best of 3 matches.
Plus, all participants will receive a limited edition, Ultra Rare Sky Striker Maneuver – Scissors Cross card, and 5 booster packs, plus an OTS 12 Pack too! Supplies are limited, so show up early and don’t get left out!
As with every set, Ignition Assault includes 8 Bonus Cards (previously available only in Japan), plus 12 World Premiere cards never before seen anywhere on Earth! You won’t want to miss out!
Yu-Gi-Oh! Legendary Duelists: Magical Hero will hit the tables at Gnome Games Tuesday January 17
It’s time for the first Yu-Gi-Oh! release of the decade, and Legendary Duelists: Magical Hero brings some super cards to the decks. We’ll see these on January 17, but you can reserve your booster displays today at any Gnome Games store! Preorder before January 10 for special in store pricing.
What’s in the Legendary Duelists Magical Hero Set?
Yu Gi Oh! Legendary Duelists: Magical Hero features Yugi’s Dark Magician and Dark Magician Girl in the ultimate magical team-up!
Duelists aiming to walk in Yugi’s footsteps and become the next master of these magicians can find a treasure trove of amazing new cards for Dark Magician Decks as well as another chance to get high-demand cards like Apprentice Illusion Magician in this 56-card booster set! Many Spell and Trap cards have featured the duo together in their art. For the first time ever Dark Magician and Dark Magician Girl will be able to battle alongside one another as a single Fusion Monster: The Dark Magicians! Together, they excel in both might and magic, with 2800 ATK and the ability to draw a card when a Spell or Trap is activated.
Draw another Spell or Trap and you can Set it directly to the field and activate it that same turn if it’s a card you can normally use at that time – even if it’s your opponent’s turn! Even though it’s a Fusion Monster, destroying this one card doesn’t defeat both Dark Magician and Dark Magician Girl at the same time – you’ll get to Special Summon both of them to the field from your hand, Deck, or Graveyard!
The Heart of the Cards allows Yugi to get the cards he needs to Summon Dark Magician and Dark Magician Girl at will, but you might want a card that guarantees you can Summon them when you need them too! Magicians’ Souls is a new effect monster that can be used from your hand to send a Dark Magician or Dark Magician Girl from your Deck to the Graveyard, then Summon it back to the field.
Once you have one of the two masters of magic on the field, Magicians’ Combination is a new Trap Card that lets you Tribute your on-field Dark Magician or Dark Magician Girl to Special Summon the other one from your hand or Graveyard and negate any card effect your opponent activates!
Wait there’s more?
While Legendary Duelists: Magical Hero puts Yugi front and center, he’s far from the only heroic figure whose Deck is getting an upgrade. This set marks the return of the protagonists from the first five Yu-Gi-Oh! animated series! Join your favorite heroes as they begin the next chapter with brand-new cards for their signature strategies. Regardless of which protagonist you prefer, Legendary Duelists: Magical Hero is the fan service you have been waiting for!
The complete set of Legendary Duelists: Magical Hero contains 56 cards:
