Edit 1: Two Little Changes, It Might Work Now


Last Solution:

            Today is your lucky day! Well, I appear to not know what Iím doing, so here is the answer from someone who does, Grant Gibson!

  1. Select any card from your opponent.
  2. Flip Summon Penguin Soldier. Use its effect to return both Fusilier Dragon to your opponentís hand.
  3. Activate Creature Swap. You select Penguin Soldier and your opponent selects Cannon Soldier.
  4. Tribute both Sacred Cranes to activate Cannon Soldierís effect twice to do 2 * 500 = 1000 damage (his LP now 13,100).
  5. Tribute Dark Jeroid to activate Mystic Wok, selecting DEF. Increase your LP by 1500.
    1. Fire Princess deals 500 damage (his LP now 12,600 and your LP now 2600).
  6. Activate Monster Reborn, targeting a Sacred Crane.
    1. Discard your hand to chain Serial Spell, targeting the other Sacred Crane.
    2. Draw two cards from the effect the Sacred Cranes.
    3. Gain 1000 LP from the effect of Solemn Wishes.
    4. Fire Princess deals 1000 damage (his LP now 11,600 and your LP now 3600).
  7. Pay 800 LP to activate Premature Burial, equipping Airknight Parsath (your LP now 2800).
  8. Activate Offerings to the Doomed, destroying Penguin Soldier.
  9. Attack your opponent directly with all monster on your side of the field to do 1900 + 1600 + 1600 + 1400 + 1300 = 7800 damage.
    1. Draw a card with the effect of Airknight.
    2. Gain 500 LP from the effect of Solemn Wishes.
    3. Fire Princess deals 500 damage (his LP now 3300 and your LP now 3300).
  10. Activate Poison of the Old Man top do 800 damage (his LP now 2500).
  11. Tribute all monsters on your side of the field for the effect of Cannon Soldier to do 5 * 500 = 2500 damage.
Final Result: You- 3300; Him- 0

The other answers are variants on this, with various things being reborned and what-not.


Problem Ė Win the Game in One Turn:

            I like this one more than last weeks. For one, someoneís checked it. Two, it took me all day to make. Three, it contains a card Iíve been trying to use since it was released. Any guesses as to who?


Field: (the upper part of the screen are your opponentís cards)






Berserk Gorilla (face-up ATK)

Berserk Gorilla (face-up ATK)


Grave Protector (face-down DEF)








Mystic Tomato (face-down DEF)

Magician of Faith (face-down DEF)





Hallowed Life Barrier (face-down)

Desert Sunlight (face-down)



Your Hand: 
Monster Reincarnation, Book of Moon, The Shallow Grave, Rod of the Mindís Eye, Snatch Steal, Secret Barrel


Your Life Points:                                 100  

Your Opponentís Life Points:             3800


Your Deck Contains the Following Cards That You Can Obtain: 
Magician of Faith, Magician of Faith, Don Zaloog, Mystic Tomato


Your Graveyard Contains:
The Warrior Returning Alive, Breaker the Magical Warrior, Apprentice Magician, Makyura the Destructor, Swords of Revealing Light


Your Opponentís Graveyard Contains: 
Cannon Soldier, Zombyra the Dark


Your Opponent Has No Cards in His Hand.  

If you activate The Shallow Grave, he will select the monster in his Graveyard with the highest DEF.

You start in your Main Phase 1 having done nothing yet this turn.


Interestingly, todayís puzzle contains one card from each booster pack set. Also, I did put The Destructor in, as I said I would. For future reference, I cannot spell Makyura without looking it up, so that card shall be henceforth known as The Destructor. (19/7/5: Actually, you get the hang of it eventually. Makyura. Probably make a good password.)
