Magic and Wizards
Magic and Wizards was the original name of the card game that became the primary focus of the Yu-Gi-Oh series. Both versions of the animation, initially produced by Toei and then by NAS changed the appearance of the cards and their artwork, and also the name of the game: "Duel Monsters." To differentiate the NAS series from the original, "more violent" one produced by Toei, the series was named "Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters," and when brought to the United States of America, it was shortened back to the original title, "Yu-Gi-Oh!"
