A number of booster packs have been released for the Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game. Every booster pack up to Ancient Sanctuary contained around 110 cards (some have more, some have less), but they are typically sold in nine card packs, with each package featuring at least one rare card. Every booster pack set starting with Soul of the Duelist contains 60 cards. The only exceptions to this are the Dark Beginnings 1 & 2, as well as Dark Revelations 1 , 2, & 3, which contain cards from past booster sets.

Where the starter decks are based on characters from the animated series, each booster pack has a different thematic element, which provides for new battle strategies.

Sets available in Japan

  • Series 1: The original series. These "sets" (Since Booster Series aren't sold as a pack, rather, they're sold via vending machine) features the original layout that can be noticed by the lack of card number, and very wide box displaying attack/defense strength, & the lack of "Eye of Anubis" on lower right corner. Also, different types of Spell/Trap aren't distinguished, rather, they're simply stated in the text (i.e. "Put this card into Graveyard after activation" on Normal spells.
