The Hobby Returns! Yu-Gi-Oh!

As some of you may be aware, I’d previously dropped Yu-Gi-Oh! after YCS Toronto 2011, where I got more losses than wins. I have now returned to the game, and will be posting about it every so often. Of course, given that I have enough skill at the game to be certified as a level 1 Judge (twice, once before and once after by break from the game), I’m just gonna assume anyone reading my posts knows the basic rules (though I’ll try to explain the most complex stuff the first time they show up).

Yes, this is why I haven’t posted much lately.
