Both of these shows has a type of game where they challenge one another. One has a virtual card game and the other has a variety of life size puzzles. There is a punishment for losing during special games. The main characters even have items that make them better at the game. They repeat the game almost every episode. There is also a villian at points trying to ruin the game or destory the world.
Both of these anime, at their basis, feature some ordinary plaything brought on to a large scale competition with dangerous consequences. Both series can jump back and forth from serious to humorous with thair colorful casts of characters. And of course, the main character is a natural genius at whatever it is the series focuses on.
High stakes games? Taking childrens' games far too seriously? Struggling to solve really simple puzzles and problems for dramatic purposes? Oh yeah, these two are practically the same. Except Yugioh has a lot more card games and ancient egyptian subtext.

This may seem like an odd recommendation, but hear me out - in my opinion, some of the best recommendations out there aren't based solely on plot, but on the relationship between the main characters. For example, Gungrave and Berserk couldn't be less similar when based on story alone, but the char development and char dynamic is dead-on. The same can be said for these two - Kaito and Gammon's comical and at times serious frenemy relationship in Phi Brain is nearly identical to Ryuto and Kazuma in Scryed. If you enjoyed the dynamic in one, try out the other.
Both shows have characters that love to hate each other and plenty of interesting battles occur because of this. Scryed is a little more action adventure based where Phi Brain goes the puzzle solving school life route but either way I'm sure fans of one would enjoy the other.
An urban legend states that those exceptionally gifted at gaming will be sent a special game invitation, and the winners of the challenge will be whisked away to another world. When Sora and Shiro, two hikikomori NEETs who happen to be both siblings and notorious gamers, receive this invitation, they defeat it with ease. And like the legends tell, they're...

Both shows are about extremely smart characters who bet everything on games, or puzzles in particular.
One thing to note is that the shows have very different pacings however, Phi Brain is longer whereas No Game No Life is faster.
If you are looking for more crazy games give it a go :)
They are both puzzle-bazed anime. The way of thinking of the characters are amazing and you simply can't predict what's the next mouve of the characters. The action is filled with life or death situations.. This is a must watch anime :)
