Unter den Hut geschaut: Yu-Gi-Oh! with Handicaps|Unter den Hut geschaut: Yu-Gi-Oh! mit Handicaps

A few days ago, I received a private message on eTCG.de from a user that told me about his situation; he's wheelchair-bound and suffers from an impairment of the motor nerves. He quickly added that it's no big deal for him – he's used to it and doesn't need me to feel sorry for him. I was rather impressed by the courage and attitude of the young player. So I asked him if it would be OK to write something about his situation in my weekly column.

Fortunately, Alex was fine with it, so that's why this week's column is showing you how rewarding it can be to play Yu-Gi-Oh! – it can cross boundaries and help you find friends that you would have never known if you wouldn't play the game. Read on here: Unter den Hut geschaut: Yu-Gi-Oh! with Handicaps.

On a related note, the eTCG.de Podcast Volume 5 has also been released. It features another special guest: None other than Umut Serin, winner of the final of the eTCG.de Pro Challenge that was held last weekend. Tune in while reading over my column: eTCG.de Podcast Vol. 5: The final of the eTCG.de Pro Challenge.

    Nope.. you didn’t post it on Facebook. The other comments that are all listed as “my comments” have been pulled from Facebook from a script for this blog. 😉

    I’m constantly trying out new stuff and now I got a couple of cool Facebook integrations that bring some traffic to this site. Which is quite cool and easier for everybody. Or so I hope. ^^

    Yeah, so long as I’m with people I know it’s all good. I didn’t think we’d be getting single rooms for some reason, did you get one in Birmingham?

    I’m not sure if the writer will have single rooms, but I wouldn’t mind sharing a room. 🙂
    However, I’ve already sent in a suggestion to put me in the room with my best friend. Let’s see what will happen. ^^

    Also, I sent in the email to Amigo regarding hotel roommates. First preference is yourself and Anh, and then any Brits after that 😉

    That’s great to hear. If I can support you guys, let me know. I’ll also see what I can do, guess I got some YGO cards lying around my appartment somewhere and it doesn’t seem like I’ll be playing again anytime soon. 🙂

    Just read this after Mike Nguyen posted it in the UG forum. We’re hoping to have the whole team sign something for the guy, or at the very least Vittorio to sign a card. 🙂
