    Post  Guest on Wed Dec 19, 2012 3:42 pm

    This is an article to explain the terms used in Yu-Gi-Oh! Some basic some advanced. I'll update if you guys have some I need to include.

    ____________________________________________________________________________________________________
    Activation

    Activating a card: Placing a Card from the hand on the Field and asking for a response.

    Activating an effect: Selecting a card already in play or banished or in the grave and activating it.

    ____________________________________________________________________________________________________
    Chain

    Chain: To activate a card in succession to another Card or Effect Activating. Happens after the opponent asks for a response.

    ____________________________________________________________________________________________________
    Resolve

    Resolve: Neither players could or want to respond to the last card in play and the Effect listed occurs

    ____________________________________________________________________________________________________
    Sending

    Discard, Destroy, and Mill are forms of "Send" to the Graveyard

    Send to the Graveyard is not a form of Tribute, Discard, Destroy, or Mill to the Graveyard


    ____________________________________________________________________________________________________
    Special Summoning

    Synchro, Fusion, Ritual, and Xyz Summons are Forms of Special Summon

    But a Special Summon is not a Synchro, Fusion, Ritual, or Xyz Summon

    ____________________________________________________________________________________________________
    Summons

    Normal Summon ≠ Flip Summon

    A Flip Summon is a form of a FLIP, but a FLIP is not a form of a Flip Summon

    Summon ≠ FLIP (Flipped Face-up)

    ____________________________________________________________________________________________________
    Target

    Targeting: Happens after activation of an effect or card, but before asking a response. Select a Target whether it is from Field or Graveyard or Banish


    ____________________________________________________________________________________________________

    "SEGOC"

    Simultaneous Effect Goes On Chain : The order in which 2 or more Trigger Effects activate at the same time.

    Thats just a little sample, my explaining sucks a bit I know, but tell me is this useful? Especially to new players or those who are confused with the wording on cards?
