Welcome to dueling!

Alright this is just a simple segment designed for those who might not understand the game or might just need that little push to see the game at a whole new level. Let's start with the basics.

How to win:
Why do we play a game other than having fun? To win of course!
Here's the most basic ways to win a duel.
1. Deplete your opponent's life points to 0
2. Your opponent has 0 cards left in their deck and cannot draw during their draw phase
3. Special effects that allow an instant win , don't let this prevent you from playing yugioh, they are rare.
The Creator God of Light, Horakhty
Cannot be Normal Summoned or Set. Must be Special Summoned(from your hand) by Tributing 3 monsters whose original (printed) names are "Obelisk the Tormentor", "The Winged Dragon of Ra" and "Slifer the Sky Dragon", and cannot be Special Summoned by other ways. The Special Summon of this card cannot be negated. The player that Special Summons this card wins the Duel.

As you can see, effects like these are rare and are almost impossible to use. The requirements are far too hard to meet and there are much more simple and let's admit it, more realistic ways of winning.
How to deplete your opponent's life points to 0:
This is the most common way of winning in Yu-Gi-Oh and is accomplished through attacking your opponent directly or attacking your opponent's monsters with your own monsters. The other way to inflict damage is using card effects that inflict what is known as 'effect damage'. The player who hits 0 life points first loses, in the rare event that both players should hit 0 at the same time, the round is considered a draw.

The next few posts will be about different decks that you are very likely to see in the mainstream decks and how they work to achieve victory.
