Yeah, maybe. I just know that in the actual card game, there were no stips. You draw all pieces of Exodia, you win the duel. The show may have altered Exodia's insta-win ability vs. the God cards, though -- I honestly don't remember.

We never see an Exodia deck go up against a God card deck(afaik) but it is repeatedly stated that the God cards>Exodia in the show and in terms of lore that does seem to be the case since they did better against Zorc(though Exodia was being powered by a very old man). They're also at least arguably more practical since getting an Exodia hand is more complicated than getting 3 tributes for a god.
But in practice, in the card game, Exodia should win. None of the God cards mess with the opponents hand and in the final duel Yugi defeated them with a combination of a few traps/spells and the Magnet Warriors. But a series where a bunch of dudes use cards to **** around with their deck to get 5 specific cards wouldn't be as fun to watch as them summoning super monsters like they're Moses splitting the Red Sea.
Nice! I'm glad you feel that way. I would rewatch the seasons of the original again at some point, but wish they were still more easy to come by like when I first watched the rest.
While I'm nostalgic for this too, it also makes me miss the days of Saturday morning cartoons. The original Yu-Gi-Oh's run was one of the times they were at their peak (well technically it's a shonen jump anime, but you know what I mean).
PM me the link? I've just been watching the episodes online.
"To all visitors from Transylvania looking for the head of Voivode Dracula: Yes, we have it. Yes, he's dead. No, you cannot see it. No, he will not return and invade you again. It has been over thirty years, please stop pestering us."
Looking back, am I the only one who noticed how often everyone in the original series just said "hold on!" practically every episode? I forgot when specifically I first took note of it, but it was when they said it several times in the same episode. Usually it's said in reaction to or when a trap card's about to be activated, but for it to be said every damn time... Either some of the laziest writing I've ever seen or it was a clever inside joke.
May have to do a count of how many times they say it when I watch the series again (there's even video compilations of it), but one thing's for sure, Kaiba says it with the most dramatic integrity. "HOLD ONNN!"
