Pop-Up Duel Cards

How to play & Afflictions

You'll recognize the Pop-Up Duel Cards system from the DS game Chocobo Tales. It's intact, and still the same. Some new upgrades like the Defense Break were added, but it basically remains just like in the DS game, with a few more cards added to the library. You can play this at Mog's mini-games place, by examining the arcade in the corner.

Although you'll need Wi-Fi to play with friends, it's possible to train alone against the computer. You can find the cards inside dungeons; sometimes enemies will drop them. The other way to get them is completing dungeons and other requirements, that will be listed in "Location" into the list found below.

How to play Pop-Up Duel:

1. First, you'll need to make a deck. Name it, then choose the cards. Try to have a balanced deck with a bit of everything, unless you want to concentrate on one type.

2. Once the fight starts, you have 15 seconds to choose your card from three randomly drawed. Hold down B and swing the Wiimote to choose the card. The first player to choose is the first to attack.

3. If you have an Attack symbol on the card, it will attack the opponent's card on the same spot as your attack symbol. If opponent has a Shield symbol, the attack will not work. If there is nothing in that spot, the attack will succeed and the damage will equal the one indicated on your card.

4. If the opponent attacks first, the attack will only fail if you have a Shield symbol on the spot where the opponent's card has an Attack symbol. If you both have Attack symbols in that spot, the damage will only be half and both attacks will still succeeds. If you both have Defense symbols, nothing will happen.

5. The only way you can break through a Defense symbol is if your card has a Defense Break symbol (spear symbol -- this is the new upgrade). In that case you can still ataack and succeed.

6. Each card has a color. After each round, your card will give you a Crystal Point (CP) of the same color as the card. If you use a red card, you will get a red CP after the attack. Grey cards don't give CPs.

7. Some cards require nothing to be used, but other cards require CP. If your card indicates that it needs a yellow CP and two blue CPs to work, you will first need to play a yellow card and two blue ones in order to first obtain the right number of CP to use the card that requires it. If you don't have enough CP, you can still use the card to defend, but attacks will not do any damage even if they succeed.

8. Some cards have effects such as raising defense, healing, slowing down the opponent, etc. For these effects to take order, your attack or defense will need to succeed. If they do not, the effects won't work.

9. Battle ends when one of the players' HP reaches 0.
