Yu-Gi-Oh! BAM is a web based game, playable through Facebook.
- Currently the game includes up to 337 cards
- Currently the game includes 15 different Power-Ups
- Some monsters in this game were made just for this game.
- The way monsters are compared in this game is similar to the effect of "Subspatial Battle".
Every minute the player gets an "energy-point". They need them if they want to start a duel. To duel he/she needs about 15 points, stronger opponents cost more so that means he/she can have four cost-free Duels in an hour. If they want to have more they have to collect "Duel-points". The player gets some if he wins a Duel or he can buy one for a Facebook-coin. 100 energy-points cost 3 Duel-points but to buy more cards the player also need Duel-points.
The field consists of 6 Slots (3 for Monster Cards and 3 for Spell Cards). Every 4 vertical slots are called "Channels" (2 on your side of the field and 2 for your opponent's). A player loses if their Life Points is reduced to 0. A player can use the "Shuffle" button to add the cards in their hand to their Deck, shuffle it, and add the same number of cards from their Deck to their hand.
Deck and hand
Unlike the Deck in actual Yu-Gi-Oh! Card game, the Deck in BAM consists of only 15 cards. They can include either monsters or Spells (there are no Trap Cards in BAM, though some of them were adapted to be spells, such as Mirror Force). During a Duel, each player starts with 3 cards in his/her hand and each turn they draw until they have 3 cards in their hand. If a player's Deck runs out of card the Duel simply continues without that player drawing any cards during his/her turn.
