Yu-gi-oh is a television/manga series created by Kazuki Takahashi which is also a popular card game. The original manga was published in Shonen Jump Magazine. The title Yu-gi-oh is a play on words in japanese. "Yugi oh" translated means "king of games" which is the alternate title in the english version. An alternate spelling in Japanese, Yujyo (taken from the first kanji of the main character Yugi Motou and one of his friends Joey Wheeler, Katsuya Jounouchi in the japanese version, alternate spelling Jyonouchi) means "friendship" which is a reoccuring theme in the series.
In the dubbing process alot has been cut out and changed to suit a younger audience (and make more money of the merchandising). The dubbed version of Yu-gi-oh is not a true representation of the story and it is better to watch the subtitled Japanese versions that are floating about out there or even read the manga.

an extremely lame tv show but with an "ok" card game. the show always ends with the "evil" guy laugh. the good guy saying "BEHOLD my face down card!" then something springs up. and the bad guy screams and you hear the lifepoints go do-do-do-do... DO!!! and the bad guy loses
good guy (yugioh): BEHOLD my face down card!!
Bad guy: that cards not even in your deck asshole

innocent childs card game, played by adults and nerds, was once an enjoyable and socially acceptable game until it became a popular tv show, then yugi kept winning this has made it demeaning and depressing, since you can usually guess the storyline in 5 minutes, for example yugioh finds out his grandpa has been taken away, goes to fight old-man-napper starts to lose uses heart of the cards, wins there finito kapput. also the fate of the world generally depends on a childs card game.
yugioh used to be cooool!

A japanese card game that arrived in america in 2001. An ok game, just people who get too obsessed with it are sad. I myself liked it when I was in 6th grade, but then thought it was sorta dumb and a waste of money (as was pokemon). So I spent a total of about $250 on yugioh cards for no reason and I still have them since I don't have an ebay account or paypal/credit card.
I used to like yu-gi-oh, but then I hit puberty and got a bigger penis and thought it was sorta dumb.
