How do you play ACBIC Card Game?
Buy a pack. Open it. Trade if you wish with someone else who has the cards. Now onto the actual playing.
But wait! How do I set up my game?
How to set up the game.
Place your Off-Hands to the upper left of you, your Extra Off-Hands to the lower left of you. Place your cemetery to your upper right. Now you're free to play!
We're almost ready!
- Set off-hand(s) [deck] face down. Set it aside.
- Shuffle off-hand(s), take 3 cards. This is your hand.
- Focus. Whoever has the more total speed (SPD) goes first.
- Whoever goes first cannot attack the other player yet, there are no opposing summons on the battlefield.
- Wait until both players have their hands and at least one summon on the battlefield.
ATK / DEF.. What's the Difference?
Attack (ATK) is the main focus of the game. Use it to take down defense, or defensive (DEF) summons. If one player has 50 ATK and another has 40 DEF, if the ATK summoner attacks, the DEF summon is banished. Now if a player has 40 ATK and another has 50 DEF, if the ATK summoner attacks, the DEF is down to 10 and the ATK summon is banished if it is a C, UC, or R*.
*Check Rarities, and Use of a card
Rarities (Going Lowest to Highest)
C - Common UC - UnCommon R - Rare
SR - Super Rare
UR - Ultra Rare
VR - Very Rare (Specific Conditions to summon.)
FUSION - Fusion Cards (Specific Conditions to summon.)
Uses of a card
C, UC, and R ATKs all have only one use. SRs and VRs have 3 uses. FUSIONS have 5 uses.
But all DEF summons have any turn they need until their DEF is taken down by an ATK summon. SPD has unlimited uses until the card that has the SPD is banished.
What is an "N:" card?
ATKs are Attacks and DEFs are Defense / Defensive. We know that now. But what is an N card? An "N" card, or neutral card is a card that has powers to possibly have the game go a complete 180! These are effect cards. N Cards have no rarities, however they are extremely useful in battle. Remember! Strategy is key!
Tourneys and More
You want to hold an ACBIC Trading Card Game tournament! Awesome! Play normally, except this time there's a few cards you can't use.
These cards are:
- N: Life-Light Pendulum
- N: Dragon Orb
- N: Paparazzi
- N: Eliminator
- N: I summon YOU!
- N: Performing Buds
- N: Banished
Not only that, but there's a new rule too, with a new feature as well.
The rule is simple. Don't summon any VRs or FUSIONs before both players have had 3 turns in battle. Now this new feature is also simple. Prize cards! If your card is banished in a tournament, it goes into your opponents Extra Off-Hands forever! That is unless you win it back, or just win the game.
What are.. Hands, Off-Hands, Extra Off-Hands, Summons and such?
