Ok, so lately I’ve been playing on Duel Network and I have discovered a couple new rules in the physical game which reveals that this 10 year player is 2 years out of date when it comes to the rules. This player knows all of the old rules which still weigh into today.
One of the new rules states that you can have two field spells active simultaneously on the field. This means that if your opponent controls a field spell and you activate your field spell your opponent’s field is not bumped and sent to the graveyard. You can run with your field effects and your opponent runs with their field effects at the same time. Another rule is that the player that goes first does not draw the sixth card. This rule addresses the issue of an unfair advantage.
One last rule seems to be more of a rumor than a real rule and that is that the new hand size limit became 8. I did some research and the hand size remains at 6.
Thanks for reading, and with this update I hope you are caught up on the rules especially if you are like me and you have been playing for a very, very long time.
