In 9th grade I attended a Christian school and my friends and I were really into playing with Yu-gi-oh! cards as a retro throwback. We'd bust out our old decks at school and play whenever we could. This lasted until the principle decided that Yu-gi-oh! wasn't appropriate for a Christian school and so he banned it. During our senior year, in one last act of "rebellion" we decided to bring the Yu-gi-oh! cards with us to our senior trip to Disney World. Turns out it was a great way to pass the time in the hotel. Soon, more and more of our classmates began dueling with us during the mornings, while the girls kept complaining we made them late to Disney. One of the mornings we had such intense duels that it caused us to leave WAY later than we should have. We were about to leave when all of a sudden a giant thunderstorm just lets loose above our heads. If we had left when we were supposed to, we would have been caught in the storm at Disney World. All of the guys celebrated the fact that us playing Yu-gi-oh! saved the day, and we spent the whole day reminding the girls that you should ALWAYS believe in the heart of the cards.
