#76 - Friends 'Til the End 1
Yugi and Kaiba arrive at the docks to find a mind
controlled Joey.Yugi tries
to help him break free, but Marik/Joey says the only way
to free him is to follow him. A brainwashed Tea also
speaks to Yugi, telling him to follow.
Through Tea, Marik explains the rules of his special
dueling field. Both duelists are tied to a large anchor,
to which is attached a bomb with a timer on it. The bomb
will explode when the timer hits zero, either after the
dueling time has expired or thirty seconds after a
player's lifepoints reach zero. Yugi is told to keep
Slifer out of his deck, but he instead chooses a far
more personal card: the Red Eyes Black Dragon. He hopes
that he can use it to break Joey out of Marik's control.
At the feet of each duelist is a box with a key inside,
which will open when their opponent's lifepoints hit
zero. Tea is also locked into a chair beneath a crane
with a crate hanging from it. Should anyone interfere,
the crate will be released.
Joey launches into battle with a deck enhanced with rare
magic cards, and leaves Yugi reeling from several direct
hits on his lifepoints.
