Notes For Playing In Other Countries

Most video games are not released simultaneously across countries, and a game that was released in North America last week might not release in Central America for another month. As such, Video Game Promotional Cards are not legal in other countries if the video game they came packaged with haven't been released there yet.

Shonen Jump Promotional Cards are NOT legal in Europe, Oceania, Central America, or South America, as Shonen Jump Magazine is not officially distributed there. Additionally, all Yu-Gi-Oh!-related Manga Promotional Cards are NOT legal for play in Europe, Oceania, Central America, or South America, unless the Manga carrying that particular card was specifically distributed there. (This is rare.)
