Rise of Destiny ties the old together with the new, bringing back many monsters in
new forms. Many of these monsters currently appear on the Yu-Gi-Oh! animated series, allowing
Duelists to create decks and themes seen on television. With nine new Machine-type monsters,
support for Harpie Lady decks, and anti-Trap monsters to combat your opponent’s traps, the
world of the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG will never be the same.
Among Duelists, the demand for booster sets has continued to increase as more Duelists compete
in the Duelist League and Hobby Store Leagues, held in neighborhood hobby stores across North
America. Currently, more than 600,000 duelists are registered in more than 6,000 stores across
