Now, having that been said, read on if you desire.

This is my first FAQ, so im not to worried about it looking like crap.
I actually got the majority of these through actually playing the game,
However, i got bored, and hacked the cards with the Debug Hack from
the wizzies at the Game Shark Code Creators Club.

This FAQ contians a beginning list of all the cards and thier attributes.
I did NOT include where to get them, mainly because there are 2 or 3 other FAQs
out there that accomplish this allready, and i did not feel like typing stuff other
people completed.

===============
= FAQ HISTORY =
=======================
= 10-September-1999   =
= Version 0.000000001 =
=======================
Created the FAQ after Not finding another 
North American FAQ out there that Addresses the 
Final Fantasy 8 Card Game.
=====================
= 11-September-1999 =
= Version 0.1       =
=====================
Fixed Spelling and Grammatical Errors,
Made minor modifications to the Table Key
=====================
= 12-September-1999 =
= Version 1.01      =
=====================
Modified various pieces of the FAQ in small ways.
Expanded the Table Key, and filled in the remainder of the data for all cards,
thanks to the Debug Code from The Game Shark Code Creator's Club.

=============
= Table Key =
=============
Card Level -
This refers to the general playability of the card, in comparison
to the rest of the cards in the game. a level 1 cards are generally
weak compared to Level 3 cards, with Level 10 cards being the strongest
set of cards in the entre game.

Card Name -
Self Explanitory

Card Type -
Describes where in the game you will encounter the 'real' manifestation of
this card. This is split into 4 groups, Monster, GF (Guardian Force), Boss,
and Player.

Power (N E S W) -
To read the Power Attributes,      N
use a standard compass.          W   E
                                   S
The power levels of the card range from '1' to 'A'.
Level '1' is lowest, Level 'A' is highest      

Card Element -
This identifies the element base each card has attributed to it.
Cards with N/A get no modifications when played on any tile within the card game.
Cards WITH an element attribute gain a +1 to all sides up to a maximum of 'A' when played on a tile 
of the same element attribute, while suffering a -1 to all sides when played on any other element-enhanced
tile within the sard game. If placed on a neutral tile, its attributes will remain unmodified.

Card Location -
This refers to where this card can usually be found.
In the case of the last three levels, (8,9,10) i believe that 'Squall'
refers to only the lead character Squall can recieve this card though
either defeating a specific opponent, such as Sacred and his brother Minotaur,
or through defeating a card player and taking thier cards.

Card Modify -
After Quezacotl learns the GF Ability Card Mod, you can turn Cards into Items
Be warned that this is a permanent feature, and after you zap your cards into somethig
else, you wont be able to get it back, so make sure you either really really nead the
item you will get, or you have more than one of the card you are modifying.

X:Y   Item Description
X=    How many cards you have to use    (Example) 1:5   Screws - every 1 card nets you 5 screws
Y=    How many items you will get back  (Example) 4:1   Rune Armlet - every 4 cards nets you 1 Rune Armlet
