I would go talk to the teacher ... and explain exactly what you have explained here.
They are not trading them - they are playing cards. totally different scenario
So I asked ds how he went today, he said it was bad, he was bored and they tried doing other things but it just ended in disageeements. I went and spoke to the teacher. She said it wasn't her decision, it was the deputy principal's after a lengthy staff meeting about it. She said that she and some of the other teachers thought it was not a good idea, due to boys like my ds who use these cards appropriately and also to their benefit ie to keep them out of harms way. Some of the other teachers however wanted the ban, due to some kids flicking cards, selling cards, and takingtoo long to pack the cards up when the bell goes.She recommended to me and also some of the boys who approached her about it today, that they stick to the ban for the rest of this term, and then hopefully it'll all blow over and the teacher is going to maybe suggest a trial reintroduction next term.
I thought this outcome wasn't too bad. Ds said so too, but is still devastated, as it's still TWO WEEEKS of no lunchtime yu-gi-oh. So i will see how he goes I guess.
Sorry for typos...
is there a suitable board game that could act as a substitute until next term? I know it would be a little more bulky but at least it might keep ds and his friends entertained and out of harms way.
Would the pokemon magazines be acceptable at school? Can't you get them at the news agent or woolies/coles? Maybe the boys could bring one each to pour over at break times? Looking at the pictures and stuff?

I think you should say something OP. You're within your rights to advocate for your child to be happy at school. It's an ill thought out response and I have no doubt if you state your case they will change it. You have nothing to lose by sharing your DS perspective.
I do hope it blows over too. And yes DS gets the sh!ts at how many times he is punished for something he didn't do (would NEVER do, he's a stickler for rules), because they punish the class/school as a whole, instead of individually.
