Nor is a conjunction. Meaning it connects two sentences (with the help of 'neither'). In this case the two sentences are PurpleBlackBlueGreen and PurpleBlackRedGreen.
Of course, had they been two separate sentences, the purple-black bit would be "I don't have" rather than "I have neither". However, seeing as the only difference between the two sentences is the red/blue bit, it makes more sense to go the less redundant route of combining them via a conjuction. Not to mention the fact that "time for" needs to be completed by a verb or noun (in this case YGO), as well as "spend money on" needing the same thing. Seeing as "nor the willingness to spend money on" is not a valid completion of the statement of "I don't have the time for ___", it obviously must be completed by the ending word "Yu-Gi-Oh!". Furthermore, since the completion word is the same for both blue and red, there is no need to state it twice. "I have neither ___ nor ___ [regarding] Yu-Gi-Oh!" should speak for itself, but apparently still manages to go over your head...much like this entire post probably will.
Sometimes I forget that not everyone has the same level of understanding of the workings of the English language as I do.
tl;dr: With a proper understanding of the English language you would know exactly what I meant by my post.
And that, my friends, is all you'll hear from me for the rest of the day, as I've now used up my 3 posts.
edit: As an afterthought, I probably should have just said "I have neither the time nor the money to spend on Yu-Gi-Oh!", as time is also something that you can 'spend'. However, what I said is still accurate, despite the confusion.
