i'm not sure of the time frame, but these threads expire after awhile unfortunately. I recently re-started playing this game, and wouldn't mind the solutions either, as it saves time in unlocking new cards. Now we either have to wait for someone who knows the solutions to retype the answers or figure them out ourselveves. we're on our own i'm afraid...

How come I can find hundrends of FAQs for the DS version and not for the PSP one?
Mind you, I don't think that the thread expired; I think it was withdrawn...

You can still find some cached versions of the page is you search for it on google.

Here's the URL for one of the pages

Maybe the puzzle solutions offended an advertiser and Gamespot deleted them. : P

I copy/pasted most of the solutions that were up, and tried to post them on here, but the filter keeps catching a "forbidden word" that I've scanned and scanned the text and can't find. Conclusion: filter is mentally challenged.

I've got everything but Concealed 5 and Reservist 5. According to Konami, Reservist 5 is bugged and can't be solved; Sandman isn't supposed to have his counters. I'll try posting the solutions one at a time to see which section has the "forbidden word."
