It’s kind of like using a cheat code without cheating – Yu-Gi-Oh! Code of the Duelist Special Edition Review
Despite my wallet’s resistance, I’ve pretty much fallen back into to madness that is Yu-Gi-Oh! and I’m trying to bring as many people with me. I pulled out Exodia for the first time the other day, and I swear teenage me high fived myself. But, with age, comes realization. Yu-Gi-Oh! has gotten a little bit more expensive. I remember paying $2.99 a pack because me and my friend would spend $20 on packs ($19.25 for six to be exact) and make decks from the cards we bought to prove that cards didn’t matter, skill did. Now they’re $3.99 a pack!? Inflation I guess, but dang that’s a 33% increase.
However, while some prices went up, prices also went down. Yu-Gi-Oh! Code of the Duelist Special Edition is the perfect answer to the money dilemma of booster packs. For $9.99 The Yu-Gi-Oh! Code of the Duelist Special Edition set comes with 3 Booster Packs and 2 Super Rare Cards. One of the 2 is either Skull Meiser or Solemn Strike, while the other Super Rare is Mistar Boy or something else. For less than the price of 3 booster packs, you get 3 booster packs and 2 Super Rare cards. It’s a no-brainer. Save money, get more.
Then there’s the cards that come in the pack. Code of the Duelist has a lot to offer any deck. I pulled a Re: EX which is a 4-Star with a 1900 atk, and gains 800 atk and def if it’s in the Extra Monster Zone.
But my favorite card from the box is The Ascended of Thunder. You pay 3000Lp to special summon it, then if your opponent destroys it in any way, you gain 5000LP. It’s a very low risk for a crazy reward. 2700ATK 2400DEF for the likelihood of gaining 2000LP? How is this not banned?
Code of the Duelist is legitimately a code to the game, a cheat code. Particularly, The Ascended of Thunder, is definitely a cheat. The price alone makes the Yu-Gi-Oh! Code of the Duelist Special Edition the way to go to get Code of the Duelist packs. Add in the cards that come in it, this is the best way to add new cards to your deck at the moment. My review of Yu-Gi-Oh! Code of the Duelist Special Edition gets a 5/5 Stars.
