We have not had the chance to play much of the Yu-Gi-Oh! OCG up to this point. We were lucky enough to receive a booster box of the game’s latest expansion, Galactic Overlord. The expansion invigorates and expands upon the game.
While players had a chance to check out the game at the Sneak Peek Saturday last weekend, I feel that further explanation of the set is necessary. There is a high power level to the cards here, but these are properly moderated through a wide array of different Traps and on-character active abilities. The different levels of foils available really make the pack-opening process impressive. We were able to pull some crazy rares – Number 25: Force Focus and Number 32: Shark Drake, while the other rares coming from the box made the EV per pack perfect.
Where the Yu-Gi-Oh! OCG succeeds over other games on the market is that there are variation among the common cards that one will receive. While we did get a playset of Doom Donuts and a number of the Dragons, these are useful cards. In fact, we were hard pressed to find a card that could not be successfully utilized in a deck. The Yu-Gi-Oh! OCG has been around for a number of years, but I feel that the design team has done a tremendous job in keeping old fans while drawing in new ones through fun abilities, great art, and a large selection of different foil options. The expansion will be available at your local card store in just a few short days, so make sure to save your money and see how one can take up the role of Galactic Overlord. We’re Yu-Gi-Oh! fans for sure after checking out this expansion.
