Magic is more fun simply because it is older, and more original. Magic has a much more unique strategy to it than Yugioh. This is my opening statement, what do you think?

They say ignorance is bliss, and I believe this to be the case between these two card games.

I've played both and thoroughly enjoyed my time absorbed in them. However, I quit Yugioh because I didn't have enough time whereas I quit Magic because I could no longer keep up with the game.

For many players, MTG's charm is within its complexity. However, I know that many other people will be turned away from the game due to it. Back when the most complicated ability was "flying", Magic might have been easy to teach. But today, it seems as if though the amount you need to absorb in order to be considered a good player is more than can be taught in a week-long seminar.

Yugioh, I would argue, would be viewed as more fun because it appeals to a younger and wider audience. It's also much more basic and easier to handle.

Eh...my opponent went missing. So yeah, restating my argument:

MTG is quite complicated to pick up and the concepts of the game are hard to get used to if you come from playing other games (tapping mana, the different phases). It's not very beginner friendly at all.

Yugioh is quite easy to pick up and is still a young game, the rules are not quite as complicated.

Yup...Opponent went AWOL. Arguments stand as they did last round, nothing much to add, nothing to respond to.

FYI, I prefer magic.

I think a more FUN game is with more variety and complexity. Magic has 5 different colors so you can customize your deck. It has special ability's like trample and flying.

Basically, if you are, i guess, a person who can't catch up with the complexity of magic (AKA kids), its cool if you play Yu Gi Oh, I dont have a problem.

If any of you haven't seen it, the Yugioh abridged series is pretty good, basically cuts down 5 or so episodes down into 10 minute chunks, voices over them, makes them FUNNY, and somehow keeps the storyline...for the most part. If you have time, I would advise watching them...they're worth it.

And...yeah..hard to vote for somebody who doesnt actually post 2nd or 3rd arguements..so..there goes my vote.

I've played both of them while growing up, and I'm not really sure which is better, but I'll vote for kleptin since the other guy forfeited two rounds

Same as Yraelz. Magic is way better than that cheap You-Gay-Ho game. but kleptin IS ahead 2 rounds so he wins.

I totally agree with you Logical-master! Oh my god that's exactly what I thought when I watched Yu-Gi-Oh

but in season 2, you couldn't do any of that.

Both games look really hard. And when I watched Yugio (the original Japanese), it felt like they were making up the rules as they went. Like the Life points thing. In season 1, you couldn't attack your opponent's life points directly and you could summon high level monsters without having to sacrifice weaker monsters.
