- Draw Phase -

     - Marks the beginning of your turn.
     - Draw cards until you have three in your hand card slots. The card/s you didn't use from the
previous turn will remain in your current hand cards.

- Main Phase -

     - In this phase, you can do various things like:

Shuffle Cards: 
     - If you are not satisfied with your current hand cards, hit the Shuffle button on the right
to get 3 new cards. This will cost you 15 energy points though so use it only if you really need to.

Get Help From Friends:
     - Click on their portrait and select GET HELP during Duel.
     - Let your friend give you a health boost or hurt your opponent.

     - Equip them to the available slots or targets.
     - Power-Ups are consumable items, once used, they are gone. Use them wisely!

Place Monster and Spell Cards:
     - You can place 1 monster and 1 spell card in each Channel.
     - Example: Placing a Spell card in CH1-SC will affect all CH1 slots except if it says otherwise.
     - Provided they have been played in the current Round, you can swap Monsters and Spells
from your Hand to the Field, at any point before you hit BAM.

- The BAM Phase -

     - Battle Phase starts after hitting the BAM button. So what happens when you hit BAM?
     - Thanks to Yu-Gi-Oh! BAM for providing a very detailed chart.
     - Follow the numbers from top to bottom to know which will go first.
     - Effects are ordered from (top to bottom) - (left to right). Example: Immune All will go first
before Boost All at Round Start.
     - Note: Immune All and Immune All [Type] are not the same. Similar effects applies.


- End Phase -

     - Marks the end of the turn or end of round.
     - Some Spells placed on channels activates their effects if certain conditions are met.
     - Return to the Draw Phase above to start a new turn.

     - The duel ends when one player has 0 Life points or when you surrender.
