Yu-Gi-Oh/rules of the game


I have a couple of questions about the rules of the game.
First of all it says that in the rule book you need to tribute 1 monster to summon a level 5,6 monster. Does the level of the monster matter when your tributing?
Secondly how many monsters can i play per turn?

For you First question:

No, it doesn't matter what level the Tributed monster is.
You can tribute a Level 8 monster to summon a Level 6 one if you like.

Second Question:

That depends on how you're summoning them.

You only get One Normal Summon or Set per turn.
However, you get as many Special Summons as you want. (These are summons caused by effects)
You can also perform multiple Flip-Summons per turn, but only one per monster, and only if that monster wasn't summoned/set that turn.

Hope that helps, let me know if you need further clarification.

I'm able to answer any and all questions related to the English Yu-Gi-Oh! game itself. This includes, but isn't limited to:

Deck Fixes: Either making suggestions and improvements on a deck you've already built, or building a deck from scratch for you. In either case, please give an idea of the kind of deck you're building, the level of play you're planning to use it in (small tournaments, regionals etc), and the kind of budget you're on.
Please format decks in a way that's easy to read. Each card name should be on its own line, with a number before it indicating how many you're playing. Please split decks into Monsters, Spells and Traps.

NOTE: A level of reasonability is assumed with this. I cannot build you a nationals winning deck based on monsters whose name starts with the Letter 'A' on a budget of 4($6)... Nor will I generally respond well to Questions touting "No Xyz, Synchro... etc" or disallowing cards from certain parts of the show. I haven't seen the show in a number of years and find these conditions to usually be poorly-defined.

Rulings: On any card interacting with any other card(s). Tell me the scenario, and I'll tell you what happens.

I won't be answering questions on whether a trade is fair or not, or on how much X-card is worth, as both these kinds of question can be answered by using Ebay's completed listings page.
