Do you play the Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game? Do you celebrate Christmas? If so, Konami just announced the perfect way for you to get into the spirit of the winter holiday season this year. The company is offering a new advent calendar for the game that will go on sale on October 26.

The advent calendar will have 24 doors that conceal holiday-themed cards such as Box of Friends and Toy Magician. The cards will include 14 Super Rares and 10 Ultra Rares.

This is not the franchise’s first advent calendar. Don’t worry, we were out of the loop, too. Apparently, Yu-Gi-Oh! advent calendars have been around for years. Two were available in 2011 and 2014, but they were both exclusive to Germany.
