What's Yu-Gi-Oh about?

Yu-Gi-Oh Anime (130K)

"Long ago, when the pyramids were still young, Egyptian kings played a game of great and terrible power. But these Shadow Games erupted into a war that threatened to destroy the entire world until a brave and powerful pharaoh locked the magic away, imprisoning it within the mystical Millennium Items. Now, 5000 years later, a boy named Yugi unlocks the secret of the Millennium Puzzle. He is infused with ancient magical energies, for destiny has chosen him to defend the world from the return of the Shadow Games just as the brave pharaoh did 5000 years ago..."
Beginning of Episode 1, Yu-Gi-Oh

Yugi's grandfather's soul is captured by the owner of Industrial Illusions, Maximillian Pegasus (also owner of Millennium Eye), who challenges Yugi to duel in the tournament so that if he wins against him, Yugi gets his grandpa's soul AND Pegasus' Millennium item.

Using his own Millennium item, Yugi accepts Pegasus' challenge and is headed to the Duelist Kingdom where the tournament is to be held with his friends Joey (also dueling), Tristan, and Tea. Best of luck Yugi and friends ^_~!

The first episode of Yu-Gi-Oh was aired in September 2001 on WB.
