The new YU-GI-OH set, KING’S COURT, drops today — snag your packs (or a full box) at Third Eye!

The King of Games shall see you now! King’s Court revitalizes Yugi’s “Three Musketeers of Face Cards” – King’s KnightQueen’s Knight, and Jack’s Knight – with a new high-speed Summoning strategy that always leaves you with a full hand!

Joining the royal court is the World Premiere Joker’s Knight, a 2000 ATK monster similar to Magician’s Souls that can assume the identity of all 3 of the Knights.
