    So then tell me what the problem is with a card game that has existed for over 12 years now?

    From that statement, I can assume you don't play on a competitive level, and wouldn't be aware of this, but the game is flawed by design. When you look at other TCGs, most of the successful ones give every single card a relevant cost. While some cards in the Yugioh TCG do have additional costs (discarding, tributing, whatnot), it just doesn't make up for the lack of that sort of cost system. This leads to cards which became "staples" (used in almost every deck), and as time went on, due to this fundamental flaw in the system, more cards have been added to that pool of staples. Basically, this created a meta where almost every other game is a mirror match against people with identical decks, and once that happens theres hardly more strategy involved than picking up a deck of standard 52 cards and playing war.

    All that being said, you probably play casually and whatnot, so you wouldn't care in the least about any of this. Thats the reason the game is still around (albeit dying). Most people just watch the animu or play at the lunch table and the competitive meta doesn't really affect them at all.

    And just for fact's sake, its been 8 years since the game originally came out in Japan.

    All card games have "cookie cutter" decks that exist, but it's usually the people without these types of decks who come out on top. Then the players decks who did really good are copied by people who don't know how to come up with their own strategies. These decks change all the time, and there are usually many different cookie cutter decks being used at the same time.

    And yes I do not, at this time, play competitively. but I did in the past.

    And what makes you think the game is dying? I am pretty sure you might only think this because you don't play anymore so you don't see it as much as you used too. What proof do you have of this?

    I don't have any "proof", but there are several factors I based this conclusion on.

    1. Monthly regionals had ceased in the Seattle area.

    2. My local tourney was reduced to pretty much 6 people.

    3. Only one member of my team still plays Yugioh actively, and we compete at pretty much every big event for any of the major TCGs.

    I will admit, this is all based on what I saw only up till the end of '06, as I've been out since then, but from what I've heard it hasn't changed much.
