Blade II

A returning mini game from Trails of Cold Steel. In this game, you and your opponent both carry a deck of cards. During your turn, you need to surpass your opponent number by picking one of your cards. If you cannot surpass your opponent's deck, you will lose. If both you and the computer end with a tie, the cards will reset and will pick up a card from the deck to put a fresh start. This game can either end with you running out of cards, or the player doesn't have the right cards to surpass the opponent's number. The center of the screen will display the power of each player with the numbers. This game is quite similar to Blackjack with you against the dealer in a different form. There are also other types of cards that don't follow the normal rules. You cannot win with a special card remaining.

  • Mirror Card: Switch the numbers between you and the computer.
  • Bolt Card: Disable the card that was previously used. Can be used to recover cards that suffer from this effect.
  • Blast Card: Remove a single card from the opponent.
  • Force Card: Double your current power.
  • Wand (1): Can be used to restore any card that was destroyed by a bolt. If used as an attack card, the card will have a power of 1.

Playing the Blade mini game will give you a 100 Link EXP between you and your opponent (Note: Only the first five opponents will give you Link EXP.).

The final game of Blade you can play is on December 30th. Playing on that day will give you 800 Link EXP and can be one of the prerequisites for triggering the Bonding event trophy.
