The Tactical Evolution booster set for the Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game introduces a new card type, a new card rarity, new foil technology, and even a new way to win the game. According to game publisher Upper Deck Entertainment, this is the biggest Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG set in three years.

The new Yu-Gi-Oh! GX cards should appeal to fans of the animated series, while innovative game mechanics offer plenty of possibilities to experienced players.

Featuring 90 different cards, the set features 10 brand new cards never seen before, not even in the game's home country of Japan. Tactical Evolution also debuts GX's "Rainbow Dragon," Gemini Monsters (a new type of monster card), the new "Venom" theme and legacy support for established decks like Cyberdarks, Zombies, Aliens and Normal monsters.

The Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG was introduced to the U.S. in April 2002. Each player starts with 8,000 life points and the object of the game is to bring your opponent's life points down to zero. By using the Yu-Gi-Oh! cards, two players face off in a Duel where they summon monsters and activate magic and trap cards. According to Upper Deck, players typically range from 9 to 18 years old.
