The Japanese strategy guide that I ordered (mainly for the 24 AR cards) just arrived. It came with some game boards for a game that makes use of the AR cards. Anyways, I was in a translate-y mood and thought I'd scan them in and do a translation. I figured that anyone interested in it would find it here. I'll also post the original scans of the Japanese boards (for those who don't trust my translation). The instructions for how to play are on the boards themselves (you need to read both to understand it)

Translated Player 1 board:

Oh wow, that's cool! I'd love to have this board, it'll give me another reason to collect these cards!

I wasn't aware that there was an underlying point to them besides something flashy to go with the game. There's no way to "level up" your cards, it's the same result anytime ANY two cards battle. Although I'll admit that it was kind of awesome how I opened up my pack from the game and got:

Pit
Dark Pit
Palutena (Rare)
Medusa, Queen of the Underworld
Twinbellows
Hades

All in the pack that came with the game. That nullified about any point I might've cared about the game. How does one actually go about playing when the game is virtually decided?
I will warn you now, that if asked whether I am recyclable or not...I am, for sure, non-recyclable.

Did you even bother to read the rules on the left side of the board?

I did. It just seems a bit cumbersome for this to be anything other than a small social thing for friends to do, which really limits the variety of the game unless you both have a HUGE stockpile of cards to really randomize the results up. It's nowhere near the level of actual card games, and I doubt it will ever get beyond that because of the fact that you need a 3DS to even get it to work. Don't get me wrong, the playmat's nice, and the rules are certainly something to keep things interesting, but again, it's under the assumption that you have the ability to have huge quantities of these things that (unless you buy singles online) aren't practical to get as of this point unless Nintendo pushes a huge amount of cash promoting it.

Many thanks; this seems interesting enough, although I barely have enough cards for both players to play.

Please, do explain how you got Palutena (rare) and Hades with your game? They're not in the list of 20 cards to come with it.

This game is so primitive, it's just a patch job. I'll rather play Pokemon Battle Chess. At least PBC is speedy; this one looks like it can easily drag on.

@Ryudou, sorry most kids here are ungrateful brats.

Thanks for the translated scans, looks like a fun way to play the cards.
Im going to share this with fellow forum users if you dont mind.
Maybe even remake the whole thing (with proper credit of course) for the sake of 300dpi printing.
Thanks again (just registered for this).
