So according the Gfaq's, Yugioh is a "casual" game? What the hell? Yugioh is one of the most strategic and in depth games out there.

I don't know if the poll creator will read this, but if so, please keep personal grudges and pot-shots out of the public polls. Completely uncalled for.

When it started it was simple. I was a good player and taught my little brother. Stopped playing, ten years later my brother had friends over and he's busting plays dropping 10k power monsters in two turns. I was lost lol. I stopped playing when they released the X Y Z set. Bahahaha

I read it as casual card games, like solitaire.

Your broader crticism was right though, the last option seemed very inappropriate and border line mean spirited.

To answer the poll my folks played a lot of rockband back in the day and I could see them having fun with a Jackbox stlye party game.

My father to an extent, dwindled down currently to one Facebook game (Criminal Case). My mother never was a gamer.

On the topic of card games, I never played Yugioh, but I have played Magic the Gathering for some time in the distant past. And in simulated card games, Hearthstone more recently, though my days of buying booster packs are behind me, and so I didn't stay competitive outside the earliest beta days.

So by this poll's logic, non gamers are unable to operate a mobile phone. Un-f***ing-believable. Seriously, who wrote this, and what we're they using for a brain at the time?

My dad is a big Gauntlet and Galaga fan, to the point of actually investing an arcade cabinet for the house.
On the other hand, mom is a big slots and video poker fan -_-

Can't tell if TC is joking or not, thought it was pretty obvious it means like Solitaire.
On the subject of YuGiOh I still collect casually, but mostly just things like the legendary deck collections. My big problem is there is no one to play with, my siblings and friends whom I might convince to play can't really compete with me, so then they just don't want to play. A year or two ago I tried going to a local card shop tournament but I just really didn't like the people there, they all seemed like a******s so I never went back. I like the legendary deck collections because it gives me a variety of decks I can use against my siblings/friends to make things more even and maybe get them to play with me. My main deck is Cyber Dragons which was blessed by the xyz stuff, but I hate this new Link monster stuff, totally ruined my deck.

Anyway on topic I went with the middle option.
My dad likes to play Mahjong dark dimensions a lot, but that's about it. He got in to Wii sports for a little while when that was a big fad.
My step mom almost never plays games, in fact her anti-gaming sentiments were a real pain in the ass growing up.
My mom plays or played a bunch of stupid mobile games like Candy Crush and Words with Friends. She would also play the Wii occasionally, just stuff like Just Dance though.
My step dad (technically they aren't married but it's close enough) is the only one who could really be considered a gamer at all and that is pretty much in the past now. He used to play quite a bit but Wii U and PS3 were his last consoles and he didn't play either too much, then he decided he wasn't going to bother with games much anymore. I think my mom makes it difficult for him to play, not because she necessarily has a problem with it but because she just doesn't leave him much free time.

The poll is solely talking about video games. It references "casual games" and cites "card games" as an example of casual games. That would lead one to believe that the poll creator thinks all card based video games (which obviously includes Yugioh) is a casual game.
