Other Yu-Gi-Oh TCG Accessories
Experienced players of any collectible or trading card game can tell you that the cards are only part of the equation, and Yu-Gi-Oh TCG is no exception. You can find various accessory items for enhancing and protecting your games, like card sleeves, deck boxes, and playmats. These accessories also give you the chance to express your individuality.What sized card sleeves will fit the Yu-Gi-Oh TCG?
The game cards are small and are similar in size to standard rectangular baseball cards. This has the benefit of allowing almost any sized card sleeves to fit your collection because most clear sleeves are designed with baseball cards in mind. Larger card sleeves will easily accommodate cards that are smaller in size. However, if you want card sleeves that conform almost exactly to the size of your Yu-Gi-Oh cards, you should look for card sleeves that measure close to about 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches.How many cards can fit in a deck box?
The maximum number that you can include in a deck box is dependent on the type of box you use. If you're using one of the standard-sized deck boxes produced by Konami, with the intent of housing a single deck with card sleeves, then you should be able to fit somewhere between 70 and 80 if they are tightly packed. This number will expand if you do not use card sleeves since there will be less bulk. Unofficial boxes or those made for other games will be able to house different amounts. You can also find a variety of official boxes made to house multiple sets at once.What kind of playmats are available for Yu-Gi-Oh?
Konami produces many different mats for the game that feature various characters, including monsters that you might recognize from the television shows. Additionally, some mats are printed with the official playing-field layout, which can be helpful for newer players who are learning where to place their cards. Mats for other series, blank mats, or custom-printed mats are also good choices. While there is no standard size for a Yu-Gi-Oh mat, the majority of the mats used by players are approximately 12 inches by 20 inches or slightly larger.Do accessories change the game?
While using accessories with your collection does not inherently change the game, they can increase the life span of your collection and help you to keep everything organized. This is why many players use accessories like card sleeves, deck boxes, mats, and binders to keep their collections safe and in order.
