I'm a 24-year-old graduate student who has never watched the show, played the card game, or had any interest in the game whatsoever. I put it on my supercard lite just to see what it was like, and I ended up playing (and still playing) this game several times a day. Usually my game diet consists of mario kart ds, star fox command, castlevania DOS, Sonic Rush, etc. But Yu-gi-oh Nightmare Troubador has become very addictive. I think it's because I enjoy strategy games, I play chess several times a week, so that might be it. I recommend that people try it out if you haven't yet.
