Cardmarket's Christmas Contest 2021: Art Trivia

It's that most wonderful time of the year again. All of our dearest friends (you) gather around, we play games (read on), and then there'll be presents (you can win Cardmarket credit). Join us, identify cards by part of their art, and with a little bit of luck you'll earn a little holiday bonus!

Santa Claws is not part of the game; he just carries the prizes

Starry, starry nights in white satin, twinkling lights from festive firs, food to enjoy, toys too, and packages to unpack. There's no lack of holiday imagery when it comes to the artwork that graces our cards. We have sampled a selection: the cream of the cropped, so to speak. Do you have a vast knowledge of everything Yu-Gi-Oh! and can tell from just a glimpse which cards correspond to what is shown in the following collection?

Rules (Please Read)

To take part in this contest you need a Cardmarket account, and you need to send us an email from the email address associated with your account to by the end of Thursday (December 16, 23:59 CET). You can send multiple emails, but if you do, only your last submission will count.

The body of your email should contain up to twenty card names—in plain text, in any order—and nothing else. Note that all emails with more than 400 characters will automatically earn a disqualification. Because a robot reads your emails, only full and correctly spelled English card names will count. This includes punctuation and spaces, but our robot doesn't care about capitalization. Our robot won't read anything else you write, doesn't care about the subject line of your email, and already knows your Cardmarket username from your email address.

Don't post a comment with your solutions and/or hints! Feel free to use the comment section below for feedback or questions about the contest or to tell the world about your progress, but don't spoil the fun of the challenge by giving away any of the card names or how to find them. If you see such a comment before we do, consider flagging it as "inappropriate." Serious offenders may earn a disqualification as well.


After the end of the deadline, we draw our winners from a pool consisting exclusively of the final, eligible submission from each email address.

  • First, we look at all submissions with at least seventeen correct cards and randomly select two to win €20 in Cardmarket credit.

  • Next, we look at all remaining submissions with at least fifteen correct cards and randomly select ten to win €15 in Cardmarket credit.

  • Next, we look at all remaining submissions with at least ten correct cards and randomly select ten to win €5 in Cardmarket credit.

  • Next, we look at all remaining submissions with at least five correct card and randomly select ten to win €2 in Cardmarket credit.

If any of the above tiers should have fewer submissions than prizes listed, the corresponding prizes move down to the next tier. In each case, "remaining submissions" refers to those that have not won anything through any of the preceding bullet points. Someone who submits eighteen correct cards first enters the raffle for the €20 prize. If they win, they're out, but if they don't, they next join the raffle for the €15, and so on.

Good Luck!

We'll reveal all the correct answers in another article and hand out €260 in presents throughout the day on December 17.

Davidecira(14.12.2021 21:27)

For the email is correct to list cards’ names like this:
Santa Claws
Pot of greed
Or like this:
Santa Claws Pot of greed Raigeki

TobiHenke(15.12.2021 05:31)

Doesn't matter. Either way (or even a mix) is fine.

georgeStr(14.12.2021 19:51)

Waffleswitcher(14.12.2021 16:35)

13 so far and now i'm stuck.

Anyone wanna share? :D

Benlos(14.12.2021 16:06)

Why do I need 18 correct answers? 17 are enough or?

"Someone who submits eighteen correct cards first enters the raffle for the €20 prize"

TobiHenke(14.12.2021 18:32)

Maybe in case one of your 17 turns out to be not correct after all. But yes, there's no benefit to go beyond 17, just bragging rights.

Cailord(14.12.2021 12:40)

With "plain text" you mean a "simple text" or you mean i should write all the cards in line, "horizontaly"?

TobiHenke(14.12.2021 13:17)

Plain text=text only, no images/special styles/formatting that could trip up the machine reading. Of course, you also shouldn't write, for example, "Santa Claws" like this:



Cailord(14.12.2021 13:34)

TobiHenke ok thanks a lot, i did not mean like that vertically but like:

Santa claws
Elemental hero stratos


Giflor(14.12.2021 12:31)
