The original concept had nothing to do with the card game. Yugi was shy and timid and let people push him around all the time. He found his Millennium Puzzle at the game shop his grandfather owns and decided to take it because a legend said that whoever finishes it will have one wish granted (and "be infused with my dark powers and knowledge" but they didn't read that part until later.) Yugi wishes for friends and completes the puzzle thus unlocking the pharaoh inside. The pharaoh is a confident young man who loves to gamble and he takes over Yugi's body whenever he's in trouble and saves the day by challenging the villain to a Shadow Game. If (really when) they lose, they are punished with a penalty game which will bring their greatest fear to life. When the pharaoh takes over, Yugi has no memory of the events afterwords so he unwittingly saves the people who pick on him this way and they accept him as a friend, making his wish come true.
The show went on like this for quite a few chapters until the card game was introduced then the fans started mailing letters to Shonen Jump asking if it was real and the author of the manga decided to extend it. That's what it's really about.

OP here.

I knew the series didn't start out being about Duel Monsters but I wasn't sure what exactly it was based on that lead to the introduction of the card game.

Also the card game will always be "Duel Monsters" to me. The franchise as a whole is "Yu-Gi-Oh".

>>100961714
About an ancient egyptian pharaoh locked into the millenium puzzle and his quest to regain his memories of the past and collect all of the millenium items so he can pass on to the afterlife.

Duel monsters is based on an ancient egyptian shadow game where they summoned monsters through tablets to fight each other.

The plot was decent enough. Unfortunatly 99% of the show was purely cardgames.

Read the original manga. It didn't get to be about a card game a long while. Thats why all the people who complain about "season 1 not following the rules" are stupid. The story predates the card game by a few years.
>>
>>100968019
Here's your citation. It's actually really good.

>>
Ancient Egyptian Magic taken on the shape of a Card Game where people will devote their lives to and kill each other for a chance to be a champion at a childrens card game. Also, the Champion, Weevil was shocked and confused when Yugi played a Trap card.

What the fuck, man?

I own the series and really enjoy the dub since it was my first exposure to it and nostalgic
>>
>>100968019
Yugi played gambling games and if they lost he would kill them or send their soul to the shadow realm

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rWXTZ8zuuDQ
>>
>>100972742
>he would kill them or send their soul to the shadow realm
Not really.
He'd kill or punish them if they cheated.
Later on other guys show up and gamble too.
It's basically less manly supernatural Kaiji with Akagi as the MC.
>>
>>100970705
Atem never cheated. He usually won when others tried to cheat so that he could punish them.
>>
>>100974303
>Atem never cheated
He always stacks his deck.
The games are always designed in a way that he wins.
>>
>>100974372
He didn't cheat, he just had magic powers so that the universe worked in his favor. Pretty much everyone cheating in Yu-Gi-Oh got killed or punished. Keith got his brains shot out by Pegasus.
>>
>>100974512
>he just had magic powers so that the universe worked in his favor
Sounds like cheating to me.
He explicitly cheats in the manga, more often than not.
Also, this whole 'heart of the cards' bullshit is a dub original. What he really did was stacking his deck.
>>
>>100974372
Are you fucking serious right now?
>>
>>100972598
It's not really that farfetched that he won 3 glorified locals.
>>
>>100974588
It's not cheating, his drawing whatever he needed was a power he used unconsciously. If you cheat in a Shadow game, you lose automatically. That's one of the most important rules in them.
>>
>>100974512
He can change destiny so he gets the cards he needs. Thats magically cheating, and its just ok because hes the MC
>>
>>100974777
>his drawing whatever he needed was a power he used unconsciously
He might not have consciously activated it, but he still knows it happens and continues to play despite it
>>
>>100974591
Look at the games in >>100972678
The money game was blatantly set up in a way that the delinquent was forced to attack Yugi to win, same thing about the dice game, then the sound game and the finger game.
Everything is always stacked in his favor, it's always either set up in a way that he always wins or cheating.
>>
>>100968486
To be fair, Z-ONE would've been a lot better if not for that retarded, almost last minute twist.
>>
>>100974880
Usio could not cheat and win, it's not Yugi's fault that he wants to stab him rather than just play the game normally. That's like saying Russian roulette is cheating because you can just shoot the other guy. Same with the Spider guy.
>>
>>100974880

>The money game was blatantly set up in a way that the delinquent was forced to attack Yugi to win

No it wasn't, are you fucking retarded?

He just wanted all the money. Shut up.
>>
>>100975043
Sure, but there's more.
The game with the fortune teller, the game with the bomb at the school festival.
>>
>>100975249
In which he didn't cheat either. Show me where Yugi cheats and does not get punished for doing so.
>>
>>100975249
How were either of those cheating?
