Every book is a new journey to embark on. I mainly read romances, but I dabble in other genres too.
The games aren't as good as the ones in the previous volumes. Here we have battling action figures, clock solitaire with a bomber, a card battle with magical dragon cards, fighting with yo-yos, and Monster World, a tabletop rpg. They mostly all felt the same to me since they all involve battling with some kind of toy.
What I liked about the previous volumes was that there was a dark element or danger to playing the games (I think I'll have to re-read those to compare since it's been such a long time). But here Dark Yugi isn't handing out harsh penalty games anymore as punishment to the wrong-doers. There are still some disturbing moments though like bombs blowing up a Ferris wheel, the loser of the dragon card game getting their soul taken away, and Yugi being hung by his Millennium Puzzle necklace.
There are also some cheesy moments with the friendship theme, but it's nothing too bad.
