Yu-Gi-Oh! Exclusive Packaging Yu-Gi-Oh! fans will now have a chance to take a sneek-peek at the never-before-seen Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG Exclusive Pack as Upper Deck and the Konami Corporation today announce today plans to release the new trading card set to event goers at the upcoming Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG World Championship event.  The exclusive pack will be available for sale at the event on July 25 in the Anaheim Convention Center in California.  The cards will be released nationally in conjunction with the upcoming Warner Bros. production, "Yu-Gi-Oh!: The Movie" in August.

The eight-card set is playable with previously released cards and in tournaments, and, consists five Common cards and three Ultra Rare cards. This is the only set that will feature signature monster of Anubis, and additional monsters, and cards, featured in the movie.

"Yu-Gi-Oh!: The Movie" takes place after the conclusion of the Battle City Tournament, where deep below the sands of Egypt, an ancient evil has awakened. Anubis, who was defeated centuries ago by Yugi's mysterious alter ego - the ancient Pharaoh - has returned for revenge. Wielding the power of the Eighth Millennium Item, Anubis is determined to destroy Yugi and take over the world!  "Yu-Gi-Oh!: The Movie" is a production of Warner Bros. in association with 4Kids Entertainment, Shueisha, TV Tokyo and Nihon AD-Systems.

Earlier this year, Upper Deck Entertainment added major retail outlets to the growing list of tournament locations across North America, such as Toys R Us, Wal-Mart, Hastings, Books-A-Million, and Meijer retail and hobby outlets, to host weekly Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME Duelist Leagues, where promotional and exclusive cards are awarded.  To date, there are over 5,000 retail and hobby stores hosting weekly tournaments in which over 600,000 people participate.

During the game, players duel each other by summoning monsters and activating spell and trap cards. Using a Starter Deck and/or booster sets, Duelists collect cards to play their hands against other duelists. Duelists with well-constructed Decks, powerful monsters, solid strategy and a little good fortune are the winners in the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME.
