How to Use the Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Disk Launcher
Collectable card games allow opponents to create their own decks and battle each other. The Duel Disk is an extension of this basic concept. (Jupiterimages/Polka Dot/Getty Images)

The Yu-Gi-Oh Collectible Card Game originated from a very popular Japanese comic and TV series. In addition to the game, both series introduced the Duel Disk Launcher, a hand-held device that functioned as a play mat attached to the arm which allowed opponents to play against each other standing up. Eventually, Mattel developed a functional Duel Disk, letting fans play against each other with the technology. All the Duel Disk requires is some basic preparation for play.

  1. 1

    Turn on the unit. The switch is located under the circular frame. Push the switch left toward the two tally marks.

  2. 2

    Place your left hand through the wristband. If you are left handed, put your right hand through the wristband.

  3. 3

    Connect the straps to the Velcro on the wristband. Relax your hand, palm up, and adjust the straps to fit your wrist.

  4. 4

    Insert your deck into the card holder, the branching rectangle attached to the circular frame.

  5. 5

    Begin play. Monster cards are placed in the large slots with triangles in the centre. Magic and trap cards fit in the slots directly above these, and there is a retractable slot underneath the right end of the card slots for a field card. All normal gameplay rules apply.

  6. 6

    Adjust your life point display. The number screen is located on the left of the card holder. The triangular buttons will increase and decrease points as appropriate to gameplay.
