Tales Of Destiny 2 is offering lots of fun and challenges.
Its old-fashioned heroic RPG story and sophisticated battle system will always captivate
the heart of true RPG gamers around the world.

TOE/TOD2 has many levels of entertaining.
This time, It contains four nice pocket station mini games (TOE version).

Four players are PLAYABLE simultaneously on screen!!!!
Think about combos, skill combinations, and great magic spells!
The battle system allows you to execute skills/combos by using street fighter command style
or by pressing shortcut keys.

Explore and collect all the secret items as well as the seven treasures of Celestia.
Find and try all the secret skills and spells.

The Mania/Hardcore mode will be unlocked to certain requirements/after you beat the game

Overall, I really recommend you to play this Funtastic game.

Paolo will be using his Water Craymel skill to calm down the river.


How to play:
- Move left and right using directional buttons.
- Accelerate by holding X button.
- During the acceleration, you cannot move left/right.

- Do not overuse of the acceleration button, it will obviously bring you
- The safest way is also means do not use the acceleration button at all.
- Please read the rafting route details below.

Part 1
Rafting route:
- Departure from the starting point lays a long range. Accelerate a bit
- After the 1st easy right turning, be on a little bit left and step on the
  gas. Remember to cool down when approaching the waterfall.
- Accelerate a bit on the left.

- Prepare to turn left at the FIRST INTERSECTION.
- Accelerate a bit on the left side.
- Accelerate a bit on the right side.
  watch out for a rock in front on the left side.
- Left turning.

- There will be a GROUP OF ROCKS to slow you down; the 1st will fall off to
  the left side, the 2nd is quiet on the left, the 3rd is a self-targeting
  from the middle point to the right side, the 4th will fall off to the right
  - Be on the right/middle side. Pass the 1st rock by accelerating a bit forward,
    You will be on the middle position now. When you are next to the
    2nd rock, move Southwest to avoid the 3rd rock, accelerate forward
    leaving the rock no 3 and 4 behind.

- Accelerate a bit on the left side. Another rock will fall off on the right

  It is easier to turn left.
  It is also a good choice If you choose to turn right.
- Accelerate a bit on the left side.

- Turn left at the THIRD INTERSECTION 'cause there is a rock and a log on the
  right side.

- At the FOURTH INTERSECTION, you can choose to take left or right.
  If you choose left, there is a rock and a log ahead. (A bit faster)
  If you choose right, it is safer.

- Accelerate a bit on the right side
  Right turning
- Accelerate a bit on the left side.
  There is one rock on the right. Waterfall ahead.
- Accelerate a bit on the right side. Right turning ahead.
- Accelerate a bit on the right side.
  On the left are a rock and a log. It is a narrow space, so be careful.
  Waterfall ahead. Right turning. Easy left turning.
- Now it is your last chance to speed up. Take your best position,
  (A bit closer to the left side-the screen will adjust) step on the gas.

No awarded Title: ???
It seems there is no awarded title, this time.
I manage to finish it two times without having any crash or bounce, not even
However, nothing comes up. It is just a side event, this time.

Part 2
Once you defeated Sylph, you can get access to play this mini game again. Go to Raheans
River Pier-they have fixed it, and this time with a record of time and awarded items.

Rafting route: First intersection - go left, second intersection - go right, third
intersection - go right, fourth intersection - go left.

Target Time:   01.30.00
My Best Time:  01.05.34
Awarded Title: *Master Coxswain* (Kajitorimeijin)
               (Get below 1.06.00! even if your time is 01.05.59)
Awarded Items: One Apple Gel for every four Red Gels you pick up.
               I can get 21 Red Gels. Try to get 24.

General Notes:
- This (first) mini game is not as easy as you may see.
- On the second part, the stream is stronger. (No Paolo to calm it down)
- And the rafting route will be slightly different for the second part because
  now you need to pick up Red Gels along the way.


It is time to get back in shape dude. Come on and try your best (run?) shot.


Single Player Mode

How to play:
- Get a blue/red crystal to attract or repel ball. Use it to smash your
- The color of crystal you take will automatically change to the opposite
  color when the opponent gets the same color as yours.
- You lose when the ball hits you 3 times.
- If it is a draw game, then you will have a Final Game. Previous score will
  be on the screen. This time you will have 2(two) balls rolling around.
  However, if the score is 3-3, you will be the loser.
- You need to win three times in a row to become a real winner.

- You only have 60 seconds; so do not waste your moves.
  You need to aim fast, run fast.
- Try to match the ball's color and repel it to smash your opponent.
- Sometimes the best defend is run fast or to stay at the corner.
- When you have the winning score (2-0 or 2-1), just tail your opponent.
  When you both get knock down by the ball, it is to your advantage.

Part 1
Awarded Title: *Master Roller* (Korogashimeijin)
               (Play it the first time you arrive at Mintche/low level)
Awarded Item: No item

Part 2
Awarded Title: *Pro Roller* (play it when your level is high enough; lv.70?)
Awarded item:  Crib Sheet (kakomon)

Two Players Mode
Rules are still the same only the second player will become your opponent.
It consists only 1(one) round.

General Notes:
- Remember that the fences can bounce you back when you touch them.
- When you reach higher level, there will be two balls rolling around on
  a normal game and three balls on a draw game.


When you arrive at Barol, you will meet a merchant who challenge you the Arithmetic game.

- The one to take the last stone wins.
- You can take one to three stones each turn.
- You can quit anytime by pressing the circle button

Awarded Title: *Warrior Chef *
Awarded Item: None

General Notes:
- I purposely give you the clue of each round so you can make a guess on the
  correct answer. That is why I put some dash signs together with an alphabet
  just to make it more interesting.


Since you are aiming for Luishka Station, you have to start the line from Imen Station.
Buy the Craymel Cage (2000G) from the weapon shop at Imen to refill the train's fuel.


How to play:
- You need to visit 4 stations and deliver a letter to each station
- The train will accelerate automatically.
- You need to push "up" button in order to execute the brake system.

Suggestions :
- When near each station, Meredy will say. "Mmm, I see it". Now it is time to
  push the brake button subsequently (5 times, one by one, 1-2-3-4-5 times).
  The last one should be pushed as far as the second sign board or
  after Reid shouted =Brake !=.

- The other way is to push UP button fast right after Reid shouted =Brake=.
  It will stop just in time.

That's it, so easy.

- And that is not all. Your actual duty is to deliver letters as to complete
  the story involved. Keep coming back to Imen Station to deliver new letter
  to each person. You will understand each person has his or her own story.
  Finally, after delivering 3 times (without a miss), you will get a title.

Awarded Title: *Choo-choo Girl*
Awarded Item: No item

General Notes:
- It contains no melee experiences, just delivering letters.
- It needs good timing, but not difficult.
- If you miss a station, they will complain about how bad Reid was on the control.


You are continuing journey to Peruti, but you need to get pass the Gnome Mine. On the way,
monster are chasing on you (Hard Horns and Flying Soul).


For the very first time let them catch you. You cannot blow them anyway. This will take you
to battles and increasing your chance of getting items as well as filling up monster

Go back to Luishka Station and talk to the conductor.
However, you are not going to fight with them anymore.
Instead, it is the actual mini game; you will have to release bombs to blow them out of the

How to play:
- Press the X button to release the bomb.
- You have 4 bombs in stocks. Automatically replenish.
- You have 6 seconds before it blows.
- You can hold X button to delay your throwing.

Suggestions :
- No hurry in releasing bombs. Wait and check for the distance. It is good
  timing that really matters. When the trolley comes near or close to your
  train, release 3 bombs one by one (1,2,3). Save 1 bomb for emergency
  purpose. Remember, you can hold X button to delay throwing.
- When your opponent's track is not on the straight line, you will have to
  wait patiently.
- Practices make perfect.

My high score is 27.500 points.

introduce Whis -a famous card game in Imen/Celestia- to the group.

5.8 WHIS

How to play:
- Left and right to select card, X to put down a card, O to pass (and you
  have to draw a new card), press /\ to Quit.
- You need to match the opponent card's elements.
- First party to use up all the cards will become the winner.
- You lose if you have more than 15 cards in your hand.
- The player with the highest total score after 5 rounds, is declared the
- Cards are divided into 5(five) categories. They are 1)Normal card, 2)Double
  card 3)Attack card 4)Change card. 5)Elements Control card(Dark and Light)

- Read the cards explanation carefully. You may want to jot down some
  important notes.
- Try to use the element control cards (dark n light) as your last key weapon
  and win the game as you will earn lots of/double bonus points.
- Use attack cards to force opponents to draw more cards, and use double
  cards to throw more cards more than once.
- Do not forget you have a chance to draw a new card and to think again which
  card you should throw. If you push the draw button one more time, you will
  pass your turn. Use it wisely.

General Notes:
- MATCHING is the key word.
- On your first turn if you do not have a matching card, you will
  automatically draw a new card and lose your turn.
- You can use draw anytime you want.
- Every time you won, you will get a current score. It will be automatically
  calculated to your previous score. For example:
  (1) Your previous score is 12; your current score is +20, your new score
      will be 32 points.
  (2) your previous score is 12; your current score is -20, your new score
      will be -8 points.
- Your bonus points depend on the card's quality points:
  1.  Normal card worth 2 points,
  2.  Double card worth 5 points,
  3.  Attack card worth 5 points,
  4a) Single Border Change card worth 5 points (Prism Change Card and Wind Change Card),
  4b) Double Border Change card worth 2 points,
  5)  Elements Control card will double your winning or losing points.
- It seems that the game become more difficult when you are collecting more and more points.

Normal card:
Use this card on normal basis (Fire, Water, Wind) in order to match your opponent's card.

Double card: (Double Fire Card)
- If you have 2(two)or more double fire cards, you can use both cards in a row,
  plus accompanied by 1(one) normal fire or change ice or fire attack card or even
  a fire attack card.
  That means you can throw 3(three) cards in one turn (or more, depends on
  how many double cards you have). Nice :)
  And if you use Fire attack card as your last card, you are forcing the
  opponents to draw more cards to your advantage!
- When you use a fire double card without a matching card, you need to draw a
  new card. If then you get another fire double card and you use it, you must
  draw another new card. Now, if you still did not get a matching card, you
  will be automatically passing your turn.
- If your last card happened to be a double card and your next opponent last
  card is a match to your double card, that will announce your opponent as a
  winner because you still OWE one matching element card to accompany the
  double card you have just thrown.

Attack card: (Fire Attack, Water Attack, Wind Attack)
- If you throw an attack card and all of your opponents does not have a
  matching card, then the (next)opponent No.1 have to draw 2(two) new cards,
  opponent No. 2 and 3 have to draw each of them 1(one) new card.
- If you throw an attack card and opponent No.1 also use an attack card, and
  opponent No. 2 does not have one, then he or she will have to draw 4(four)
  new cards, and if (the rest of opponents) opponent No.3 does not have it
  either, he or she needs to draw only 1(one) new card.
- If all of your opponents use an attack cards and you do not have a matching
  card, then you have to draw 2X3(players) = 6 new cards!
  (Attack card works like a multiplier. If you use it and opponent No.1 and 2
  each of them throws an attack card and opponent No.3 does not
  have a matching card, then No.3 has to draw 2X3(players) = 6 new cards.)
- If you use an attack card and all of your opponents each of them throws
  another matching attack card and you do not have a stock of matching attack
  card anymore, then you have to draw 2X4(players) = 8 new cards!! Phiuu
  Imagine if each of you (4 players) own 2 attack cards. It can bring a
  result of chain combos. Means 2X4(players)x2 = 16 cards!!! You think it
  is not going to happen? Wrong! It just happened to me for 14 cards!!
  (And I made Farah had to pick up 14 new cards!!)
- This one is interesting. If everybody throws attack cards, and at last (on
  the second turn) there is one player run out of attack card, he or she has
  to pay for it, even if the player has already thrown all of his cards.
  (even if the quantity of card on hand is zero).
- The safest way to use an attack card is when you have a spare matching card or
  another attack card, just in case.

Change card: (Wind Change Card, Prism Change Card, Ice, Volt, Earth)
- Be careful when you use the Wind-Change Card. You must observe and
  predict your opponent's cards.
  Example 1: Farah (opponent No.3) has only two cards left on her hand. She
  throws her Wind normal card to you. Do you want to use your Wind change
  card? (It is the only wind matching element card you have) or to draw a new
  card? You may not want to use it because the game flow will reverse
  (anti clock wise)and Farah will get (again) her turn to throw her last
  card. Who knows what her last card to be? If she has another wind matching
  card, You will be sorry.
  Example 2: Keele (opponent No.1) use a normal wind card, you only have 2
  cards left (a Wind change card and a Wind normal card).
  I recommend you to use the Wind change card since it will force
  the game flow starts from Keele again. If he throws a wind card, you are
  the winner.
- Pay attention to the card's border. There are 2 types of borders. One is
  single border and the other is double border. The lower border represents
  the element you can change. The upper border shows the element-to-be.
- You cannot put a single border change card on top of another single border
  change card. However, you are allowed to put a double card on top of another
  double card as long as the borders match (top border match to lower border).

Element Control card: (Light, Dark)
- Use this card as your last key weapon card. (Dark and Light)
- It offers lot of helps, but it will not work when the opponent is asking
  for you to throw an attack card.
- When you have 2(two) Elemental Cards, your winning/losing points will be tripled?

Draw or Pass:
- When you do not have a matching element card and you push circle button,
  you will draw a new card.
- When you still have a matching card and you push circle button, you will
  pass your turn.
- USE DRAW when none of your opponents has a matching card. Use it
  repeatedly when they still do not have it until you get the card you
  For example: When you want to use a DOUBLE FIRE card and you do not
  have the other NORMAL FIRE card or CHANGE ICE card or FIRE ATTACK card to
  accompany. Use draw repeatedly until you get the one you need. When you do
  that, the amount of opponent's cards will also increase every time you draw
  a card. Take that to your advantage.

Won by quantity:
- If the opponent has more than 15 cards, he or she is a loser. However it
  has an effect on your bonus points as every card on your hands will only
  worth lower than it should be. This could bring a big disadvantage,
  but at least you are the winner. (After that 15 minutes  and all I get is only
  6X2points = 12 points. *sigh*)
- If you have more than 15 cards, then all of your opponents will get
  the same amount of winning points.

  rely/concentrate on the map.

Sailing Route:
- (No need to hurry when you start the race, but you can try). Try to shortcut your route by
  sailing nearby the edge.
- In the middle of the race, while passing through the Gnome (fourth) checkpoint,
  step on your gas. You may pass Celcius checkpoint in front of him. Gas.
  You will lead the race. Go (South) to Volt, and find a shortcut way to Rem and Shadow
  (go by the edge of the ocean-West side). Go pass the two tiny island near the edge
  to cross Maxwell checkpoint. Pass through Sekundos and go along the edge until
  you reach the finish checkpoint.

  the Van Eltia if you loose.

Remember a boy caught by the 'mean' shop owner?

The same thing happened on the Japanese version (Tales of Eternia).

My suggestion is if you want to play a new game, pay a close attention to this issue.
Save before you go to an inn. Always check for your luck status after resting/camping.

Just buy all the items you need to regain strength/HP/TP and don't forget to master your
COOKING SKILLS. It will help to restore your strength/HP/TP/Normal Status, etc.
during or after a battle.

You can always try to gain more luck if you are resting repeatedly until you get
the luck status you desire. (For example at the Gnome Village)

You can always get a Snow Tomato (after one hour of playing?) after eating the snow tomato
in your pocket. Even if you have a Snow Tomato when you are at the top of Mt. Celcius, go
down one screen, eat the tomato, go up again to the top, and the fresh Snow Tomato is now

19.Item Bush Baby
Go back to (destroyed) Luishka. Check the animal ornament in the living room.

20.Item Flare Arm
Go back to the Shadow Cave. Go down 5 screens (Choose the right path to get the Flare Arm).

21. Lens
There is a lens at 160,131 in Inferia World.

22.Maxwell Summon extension
Please read the =craymel= faq by rena chan on It is awesome. You should try
it NOW. (you can use it when you fight Elementaler (64 hits!) in Nereid Dungeon-Hardcore)

23. Fully restored at Barole
Further in the game, approach the cook near the entrance. Try some of his soup,
and you are fully restored (HP and TP). (No changing in luck status).

24. Get inside the Van Eltia
I get this message from Jonathan Jaquez ( on January 01, 2002

Q: Excuse me. Does anybody ever play the Pocket Station Mini Games of TOE?

Q: Nereid Dungeon at 8 hours of playing TOE?
   This is I am not very sure how, but when I have been playing TOE for about 8 hours,
   saved it, the star sign appears on the saved data. I really do not know why.
   I was playing a new game (it is not a new game plus). So far I have beaten
   Undine and Sylph. Just got the Master Coxswain and King of Balloons title.
   And I have access to the Mania Mode.
   Anybody got any idea of what happened?
