How to Make a Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Disk




Okay, this is my instructable on how to make a cruddy (but working!) Duel disk that you can personalize!

I got the idea from looking at cardboard and wantng a duel disk. I figured, waht the heck, and from there I just put the pieces together.

My computer has no way to upload pictures so I had to make everything on paint for examples.You have been warned!!!!!!!!!!!

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Gather Materials

So you're going to need the following:

~ Cardboard (And lots of it!)
~ Paint
~ Small calculator
~ String or Velcro (To fix this to your arm)

Step 2: Cut the Pieces

Cut the cardboard as you see in the last step. Use several pieces if needbe.

In other words:
~ One long rectangel that yu can place 5 cards on
~ 15 small and thin rectangels
~ One half cirlce that will cover your arm with space to spare
~ One deck box with a door in the front (or as it gets smaller from drawing the deck falls)
~ Cut the velcro so that it will go around your arm and have space to stick to the disk


yes this is the time to paint if you are to paint it! Do it afterwords and the results could be messy! Paint each piece in all colors you want. Stripes, ploka dots, plaid, solid I don't care!

Step 4: Piece This Together!

So now you probably have some questions about the design.
These pictures should help if you do them in order.

Step 5: Done!

After you attatch the velcro or stiring and box, you're done!

    Okay I'm going to solve this all at one time. For both of you: I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT A CARD/DECK PROTECTER IS!!!*Takes deep breath to calm herself* For Ward_Nox: You're supposed to size the deck and then cut the box. For Ward_Nox: I don't know what a click counter's wheel is either. I will google whatever this stuff is and add some instructables to my very small list and let you guys know so you can check it out...okay?

    Dek protectors are the plastic sleeves players put on there card s so thyere cards don't gett messed up do to repeated handling the one of the 2 BIGGEST complaints about the first version of the duel disk that was released was that the slots for the cards were 2 narrow to allow you to use deck protectors

    it wasnt till the 3rd version (duel academy duel disk) that this was fixed

    and as for the "click wheel" what i ment was soemthign like This:

    Thank you for clearing that up...I guess you could use a lock for a life point counter unless you want to make the wheel or buy it...I coldn't post how to make one cause I'm not all 'techy'. I'll make the box instructable later.

    2 things to be carful of that i know about from the real ones 1 that the card slot can hold cards in deck protectors 2 that the way that the cards are held in place dosen't bend the cards also you might actually want to build something resembling a click counter's wheels for keeping track of the actual life points so you don't lose your points if the calculator clears
