More Surprises in Speed Duel GX: Midterm Paradox

October 7th, 2022

Welcome back to class, Duelists! The Speed Duel GX: Midterm Paradox Mini Box is just around the corner headed your way today October 7, and we’re giving you one more article that’s chock full of reveals! We already covered the main characters – Jaden Yuki, Syrus Truesdale, Bastion Misawa, and the Paradox Brothers – but there are a couple more familiar faces in Midterm Paradox. In addition to the 10 Skill Cards for those characters, you’ll also find two more: one for Chumley Huffington in his Speed Duel debut and one that pairs Jaden & Syrus together in a single Skill Card!

These two bonus Skills don’t have pre-built Decks in Midterm Paradox, but you will find extra cards both in this set, and the original Speed Duel GX: Duel Academy Box to build them yourself. There are also more Speed Duel cards that can help you customize your favorite Decks: some to flesh out the characters and give a few nods to key moments in Yu-Gi-Oh! GX, and some that are going to make an impact on competitive Speed Dueling.

But let’s not get ahead of ourselves: the first thing on today’s syllabus is a fan-favorite Duelist with a surprising strategy.

March 10th, 2022

The Speed Duel: Battle City Box dropped back in December of 2020. It was a massive collection of over 200 Speed Duel cards, and a great jumping-on point for Deck building. It was also an 8-player sealed experience, perfect for Games Night! On top of that, it was a hit with collectors because each box came with 8 Secret Rares: 3 Egyptian God Cards, and 5 Secret Rare upgrades of cards from the set.

  • It has 200 Speed Duel cards, and lots of them are new to Speed Dueling

North America WCQ: Speed Duel Public Events!

June 22nd, 2019

Speed Dueling is the TCG version of the game seen in Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links!  There are only 3 Monster Zones, 2 Spell & Trap Zones, 4000 LP to start with, a starting hand of 4 cards, and no Main Phase 2.  Only cards with the Speed Duel watermark in the effect box can be used in a Speed Duel, so the strategies and the gameplay are vastly different than what we’re seeing in the World Championship Qualifier.

This weekend, if you win your Constructed or Sealed Pack Speed Duel tournament, you’ll win this Speed Duel Game Mat, 2 Speed Duel Tournament Packs and a Speed Duel Score Pad!  If you win your Speed Duel Starter Deck tournament, you’ll win an exclusive Coin!
