Introduction to the Card Database

April 17th, 2013

Recently, we added a tool every Duelist should know how to use: a database of every card in the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME! Having every card at your fingertips is invaluable, so we want to make sure everyone’s familiar with the many functions of the database. There are a lot of features you can use right from the start, and even more become available once you log in using your COSSY ID!

What can I do right away?

The main feature of the Card Database is its search function. With it, you can input as many or as few search restrictions as you like, and you’ll see every single card that fits your description. Once you’ve found the card you’re looking for, clicking its name will bring up a page with all of its information. You can see all of its stats, card text, what packs you can find it in, and even if there are alternate artwork for the card. You can also use the buttons at the bottom to “Like” the card with your Facebook account or tweet about it to your friends!

Sometimes you don’t want to search out a particular card, but you want to view an entire Booster Pack or Structure Deck. Click on Card Lists at the top of the page, and you’ll be able to do just that. This can also be helpful if you know where you saw a card, but don’t remember enough about it for a search.

The Forbidden & Limited List can also be found built into the Card Database. In it, you’ll find a list of every card that is restricted to 0, 1, or 2 copies per Deck, and you can also see what’s changed in the most recent update to the list. If a Forbidden or Limited card comes up in a search, it will be noted as such so you won’t have to always check the full list.

Why should I sign in with COSSY?

Signing in with your COSSY ID unlocks a lot of useful features! First, you gain access to a sweet Deck builder! From any individual card’s page, you can add it to your Deck or Side Deck. Your saved Decks can be printed out for tournaments, or shared online with friends!

Once you’re signed in, you can also start building your own Haves/Wants List. From any card’s page, you can add it to either your Haves List or your Wants List. Use one to keep track of a large collection, and the other to remember what you’re looking for. You can also access other tips and tricks on how to use the Card Database by going to the Blog section in the Logged In menu bar.

With so many great features all in one place, the first place you’ll want to look for Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME information will be the Official Card Database!
