C. Note Taking
Note taking is not allowed in Sanctioned Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG tournaments, with the following exceptions:
-Duelists should keep a written record of both Duelists’ Life Points for each Duel.
-Tracking of mandatory effect reminders.
-Tracking of turns and turn counters.
A Duelist takes 1,000 points of damage to his Life Points. Both Duelists
should track the damage taken and if possible, the source of the damage.
An effect states that the Duelist may not draw a card during her next turn.
The Duelist may make a note reminding her of this.
A Duelist activates a card whose effect lasts for 3 turns. Both Duelists
should track how many turns have passed after the card activation.
These notes should be taken quickly, so as not to disrupt the flow of the Duel. Notes are considered to be
public knowledge and must be provided to opponent or tournament official upon request.
Duelists may not use outside notes during a Match, which includes in between Games of a Match.
Duelists may consult a copy of their Deck List between Matches (not in between Games of a Match), to
ensure they have restored their Main Deck, Side Deck, and Extra Deck to the proper condition.
