Designs for WizKids and Konami's Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG card wallet project

Today, 4K Media (Konami) and collectible miniatures games developer and manufacturer WizKids announced that they will be producing a new card wallet that is tailormade for the Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game — and they want fans to vote on the design!

Head over to YuGiOhVote.com, where you can choose the material, color, and interior and exterior designs that you think will be make for the best wallet for the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG. After all the votes are tallied, the wallet will be available exclusively to backers on Kickstarter!

To encourage fans to vote, WizKids will be giving away prize packs that include Yu-Gi-Oh! goods, WizKids’ HeroClix sets, board games, and more. Voting closes on July 1 8 15, so don’t delay!

WizKids, its parent company NECA, and Konami are making huge strides in fan engagement with this card wallet project. This will be the first time ever that an official Yu-Gi-Oh! product will make its way to a crowdfunding platform. So vote on the designs, back the project when it hits Kickstarter, and be a part of Yu-Gi-Oh! history!

My favorite design elements? Black, leather, zippered closure, exterior ID window, seven-card slot interior, dice tube, smartphone pocket, and two pen holders. I think a transparent three-card slot exterior would also be pretty nice had it been an available option. What are your favorites?

Update (August 22): The Kickstarter project is now live!

  1. Well said, and wise choices. Black leather is always a great start!

  2. I think leather is the best choice because it’s attractive, durable, and classy. Unfortunately, I also think it’s the least likely to be used because of its high cost. They’re probably going to use ballistic nylon instead. That’s also a strong, popular material, but it’s not very good-looking. I just hope they avoid plastic. Bleh.

  3. I just noticed that you work for NECA. If leather wins, don’t be afraid to use it! There are Yu-Gi-Oh! fans out there that will pay for higher quality goods.

  4. Tried to find the project on kickstarter but can’t see it. Do any of you know have a link for it?

  5. After all the votes are tallied, the wallet will be available exclusively to backers on Kickstarter!

    Coming soon. :)

  6. What’s a card wallet anyways?

  7. I think “card wallet” might be a bit of a tongue-in-cheek description of this product. A card wallet is a wallet that’s meant to hold credit cards and/or business cards. In this case, we’re talking about a product that’s made for a game that involves trading cards, hence “card” wallet. You can just as easily use it to hold other types of cards, too.

  8. is this for sale yet?

  9. It sure is!
