Upper Deck Entertainment Releases Timeless Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game Collection
for 2004 Holiday Season
Upper Deck Entertainment brings joy to this year’s holiday season with highly collectible
Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME collectible sets – the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG Collectible Tin and the
Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG Master Collection. Anticipated to be the hottest-selling toys of the season,
the new Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG tins and Master Collection gives the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG collectors a chance
to collect previously released boosters, brand new cards, and powerful variant cards, including
the much-sought after "Exodia the Forbidden One" card.
Available in September, the Collectible Tins allow Duelists to make their Decks much more powerful,
with a collection of booster packs designed to increase the complexity and power during matches.
These tins offer an assortment of the game’s top-selling booster packs, which include Pharoahnic
Guardian, Magician’s Force, Dark Crisis, Invasion of Chaos, and Ancient Sanctuary. In addition,
each of the six unique tins will include one of six brand new cards.
Last year, the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG Collectible Tins were featured as an "All Star" in Toy
Wishes Magazine, and in recent years, earned top spots on the hottest Christmas wish lists at
KB Toys, and was listed as one of the most highly sought-after toys in Toy Wishes Magazine,
Business Week, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today.
In December, UDE is also pleased to release the new, and first-ever Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG Master
Collection. This highly collectible set will include the first six Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG boosters
ever released in a stylish, gold, Egyptian-themed storage portfolio. Each folder will include
a Legend of Blue Eyes, Metal Raiders, Spell Ruler, Pharaoh's Servant, Labyrinth of Nightmare,
and Legacy of Darkness booster packs, and six variant cards, including the highly sought
after "Exodia the Forbidden One" card.
Among Duelists, the demand for booster sets has continued to increase as more Duelists join
the game and compete in the Duelist King Tournament, held in neighborhood hobby stores across
North America. Currently, more than 600,000 duelists are registered in more than 6,000 stores
across North America.
During the game, players Duel each other by summoning monsters and activating Spell and Trap
cards. Using a Starter Deck and/or booster sets, Duelists collect cards to play their hands
against other Duelists. Duelists with well-constructed Decks, powerful monsters, solid strategy
and a little good fortune are the winners in the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME.
