To start playing the game, you have to have the card passport. This 
item can be gotten from the robot behind the counter in the 
restaurant onboard the Elsa. Once you have the item, to play you must 
go to any save point with the blue EVS plate over it. Then enter the 
menu, select items, hit R1 to go to special items list and select the 
card passport.

I very much recommend that you go through the tutorial provided by 
the game. It can be very helpful and will answer most of your 
preliminary questions. However, I will go over some of the basics of 
the game here too.


I. The Kinds of Cards
---------------------
There are three types of cards in Xenocard. Battle Cards are the red 
ones. These include the warriors you will use and the weapons you 
can equip them with. Event cards are yellow. These are things that 
you can do to help your deck, help your creatures, or hurt the other 
opponents deck. These cards only last for 1 turn though. The final 
kind of card is the blue situation card. Situation cards alter the 
game mechanics and the field by giving bonuses to certain races or 
helping your deck recover cards. These can last anywhere from a few 
turns to the rest of the game, depending on the card.


II. The Playing Area
---------------------
In a normal game of Xenocards there is one objective. And that is to make your
opponent run out of cards in his or her deck. This can be accomplished by 
making them draw extra cards, attacking their deck with battle cards, or 
through special effects. While you do this you have to protect your own deck.

There are a 7 main things to draw your attention to on the playing field. 

The first is the battlefield. That is the 4 big squares in the middle. This is 
where most of the action takes place. You put your own battle cards here to 
attack your enemy's deck or defend your own.

The second is the standby area. It's the left side of the field. 
This is where cards go when you first play them. You can also use this as an 
area for valuable battle cards to retreat to in order to get them out of the
line of fire.

The third area is the situation area. This is where, you guessed it, situation
cards go. It is on the right side of the playing field. As I said before, 
situation cards are cards that affect the mechanics of the game.

The fourth area to concern yourself with is your hand. This contains all the 
cards you currently have in your hand, obviously. These cards can either be 
played onto their appropriate section of the field or as one turn effects in 
the case of events.

The fifth major area is your deck. This just shows a pile of cards and the 
number of cards remaining. Keep a keen eye on this to prevent yourself from 
running out of cards.

The sixth area is the lost pile next to your deck. These are cards that have
been discarded from your deck in order to pay the cost of other cards. Try to
keep this pile from getting too big. There are some effects to retrieve these
cards though so not all is lost.

The seventh and final area is the junk pile. This pile just to the right of 
the lost pile contains all the cards that have been destroyed from your field.
These cards are generally considered completely gone although I believe one 
card, Destiny, can retrieve one battle card from it.


III. The Phases
---------------------
Now that all that is explained, I will go on to the phases of the game. There are 7
phases to each players turn.

First is the draw phase. This is simple, you draw one card into your hand from your
deck.

Next is the move phase. In this phase you can move battlecards around on the 
battlefield and to battlefield from the standby area or vice versa.

Thirdly is the event phase. You can play the event cards in your hand. Your 
opponent may play his or her own event card to counter your event but they 
cannot use any other cards this phase. You can also trigger some effects from
battle and situation cards during this phase.

The fourth phase is the set phase. In this phase you can play one battlecard
and/or one situation card. There are some cards you can play more than one of
on a turn (notably, Realians).

Fifth in the order is the block phase. During this phase, your opponent has 
the chance to play event cards before the battle takes place. You can counter
their events with your own event cards but no other cards can be played this 
phase by you.

The sixth and arguably most important phase is the battle phase. This is where
your battle cards deal their damage to your opponents own battlecards and/or
deck. This is also when the E mark on cards played during the set phase is 
removed.

The seventh and final phase is the adjust phase. In this phase you simply 
discard cards from your hand until you have only six.


IV. Playing Cards
---------------------
There are several things to take note of when playing cards from your hand. 
Many cards have a cost and requirements. A cost is how many cards are put 
directly from your deck into the lost pile upon the playing of the card. 
Requirements are the amount and kind of cards you must have out on your field
before you can play the card. Cards can require humans, mechs, gnosis, and
blanks (any card) in their requirements. All cards can have costs and 
requirements. Please note that when you play a creature battle card, it comes
into play in the standby area with an E on it. This means that it will not
count towards the requirements of any other card until the E disappears. For
example, if you have a civilian male out and play another one this turn, you
cannot play a situation card with a requirement of 2 humans this turn. The
only exception to this is gnosis. Gnosis discard one or more humans off your
standby and/or battlefield areas and place themselves into the action
immediately (although you can play them to the standby area if you wish).

HP is an attribute that is unique to creature battlecards. HP is simply how 
much damage a card can take before it is moved to the junk pile. Obviously,
the higher the HP of the card, the better off it will be.

Weapon and creature battlecards have the attack attribute. This denotes how 
much damage the card can do to your opponent's card or to his/her deck. There
are 4 types of attacks in the Xenocard game. They are:

Hand: These cards only deal damage to a card if it is directly in front
      of them on the battlefield. They have to be in the front row to 
      damage enemy cards and can't damage your opponent's deck.
Ballistic: These cards can attack any card ahead of them from any distance.
           They can also attack the deck if no cards are in the way.
Spread: These cards attack all your opponent's cards on his battlefield at 
        once.
Homing: These cards damage your opponent's deck directly regardless of what 
        battle cards he has out.

Some cards also have a special ability called penetrating. This means that 
if it attacks an enemy card with lower HP than your card's attack power, the 
excess damage will pass through to the next card in line or your opponent's 
deck if there is nothing behind it.

The final thing to notice when playing a card is it's effects. Battle cards 
can sometimes have these and situation and event cards always have effects. 
This is essentially what the card does when played or while it is out on the 
field. Most of these effects are self explanitory but one keyword the game
uses but fails to explain is downing a card. Downing a card simply prevents
it from attacking. This effect ends next turn.

V. Packs of Cards
---------------------
There are 2 different packs of cards you can buy in Xenosaga and each has a 
different variety of cards that can be acquired from it. There is also a

Here is some general strategy to deck building and playing the game. Please
email me with your own decklists, card combos, and strategies at 
kindred_thug@yahoo.com.

There are 5 types of creatures and each one has their own strengths
and weaknesses. Here are some things to take into consideration when 
attempting to build a deck based on this type of creature.

Humans
-----
Strengths- They are relatively well-balanced in cost and their 
           effectiveness. They can have a few useful special effects.
           They are also used in many other card's requirements.
Weaknesses- There aren't many extremely tough or powerful cards.

Realians
-----
Strengths- They are quick cards to get on the battle field and they 
           can equip weapons humans can.
Weaknesses- They don't count toward any requirements except for blank.
            They also tend to be weak and only have Hand based attacks.

Mechs
-----
Strengths- These guys are usually pretty powerful in the attack 
           department while also being tough. Some of them have useful
           special effects and they can count towards some requirements.
Weaknesses- They are usually have a high cost and you usually have to 
            have humans in the deck with them. The really powerful 
            Mechs also have high requirements sometimes.

Gnosis
-----
Strengths- They are usually more powerful than humans and Realians. They 
           also have a nifty sneak attack ability where they replace a 
           battlecard you already have out and can attack right away.
Weaknesses- You need to make sacrifices to each gnosis so you have to 
            fill a lot of your deck with cards to sacrifice. Also, the 
            events and situations that use gnosis are different.

Unknowns
-----
Strengths- They have some very useful special abilities.
Weaknesses- There are too few of them. You can't make a deck based on them.
            Also, they only count towards the blank requirement of other 
            cards.

When you are making a deck, try to concentrate on one theme. Make it Humans 
and Gnosis, or Humans and Mechs, or quick Realians and Humans. Whatever it 
is, try to stay focused. Don't put cards in that require other cards of a 
type you have no or few of. If you are going to make a deck centered on 3 
of the races, try to not include cards that require more than 1 of any kind 
of creature as a requirement. And don't just throw in cards that are in 
general good but may not necessarilly fit the mold of your deck.
