Find Ko-Chocobo card in Disc 4: In order to find this card, you must have defeated
all the CC group members, the Card King, and have met at least
one time with the Card Queen. On the chain in Altemisia's Castle,
head to the northern door (nearest to the castle) to return to

Find level 6 and 7 Boss Cards: On Disc 2 in Fisherman's Horizon, immediately after
saving Mayor Dobe, when Squall decides to look around by himself,
go back to the mayor's house. Go to the right of the house where
Squall and Rinoa will sit and talk. Martine will be there. He
has a lot of level 6 and 7 Boss Cards. Be careful though, as he
is a very good player and has a lot of good cards; He "confiscated
all the cards from the students at Galbadia Garden." He will
want to play for just one card, though. It will be to your benefit
if you can push the rules to be diff.

To get all the level 6 Boss Cards early, go to the classroom
in Galbadia Garden. Its a good idea to have a good team of cards
before you do this, with some GF cards (for example, Diablos,
Ifrit, Angelo, Malboro and Granaldo). When Squall leaves the visitors
room in a huff, explore the Garden. There are two classrooms.
One of them has three people in it. They all talk about cards
and they all play. The girl has all 10ten of the level 6 Boss
Cards. Using skill, sense, and a few good cards, you can get all
the level 6 cards within thirty minutes. Get as many as possible
because they refine into useful items.

Find level 8 Chicobo Card: Go to the beginners Chocobo Forest and find the mother
Chocobo. Use the "Zinner" for finding Chocobo's and
listen carefully until you heae a sound. Use the "Zinner"
again to "Catch Chocobo" and the mother Chocobo will
dig up some items for you. Repeat this at all six Chicobo forests,
then head to the Chocobo Sanctuary in Esthar. By using the mother
Chocobo you get in the Chocobo forest on Lenown Plains in Centra.
When you arrive, all the mother Chicobos will do a dance. Talk
to the baby Chocobo and he will give you the card.

Find the Gilgamesh Card for Holy Wars:
It is very easy to get Gilgamesh's Card to get Holy
Wars. If you have gotten the card before Disc 4 from Card King,
refine it into 10 Holy Wars when you reache the Ragnarok in Disc
4. Make sure the rule use earlier is not too complicated. Open,
Sudden Death, Elemental are acceptable. "Same" is still
acceptable, but if "Plus" or "Random" is applied,
it will be more difficult. Both Xu and Quistis have the card in
the Ragnarok. It is up to you to play with either of them, but
since Xu uses the rule applied earlier, it is an advantage to
play with her instead of Quistis (who uses all the rules). Xu
uses the card very frequently -- if it is not in your hand. It
is possible to get 100 Holy Wars by this method.

Regaining modded cards: Refine the rare cards desired, but not all of them.
Defeat the Card Club Group before time compression occurs (when
you fight the fake Sorceresses). Get the Ragnarok on Disc 4. Re-challenge
all of the Card Club members. If you are lucky, your card will
re-appear in somebody's hand in the group. Note: This may not
work with the character cards or level 9 GF cards.

Card game tips: Save the game before playing an opponent you have not
played before. If you use rare cards someone might defeat you
and take them. Card many enemies so that you can card-mod them
to get items. Also, play many people to get items, such as wizard
stones. Never give up a rare card - keep trying until you are
successful. Be patient if you cannot card a good enemy, just keep

Once you get Quistis and some Bomb cards, go to Balamb near the
docks. You will see a man leaning over or a girl and a dog in
the area. Challenge them for level 5 cards. To create the best
strategy for them, have 3 Marlboros, one Elastoise, and one Biggs
and Wedge. First, use one Marlboro to the DL corner. Use another
to the CL. Use the Elastoise to either the UR or CR corner. Do
the CR only if you cannot place it UR. Then, depending on where
they put their last card, is where you should use the Biggs and
Wedge card or the final Marlboro card. Using this strategy, you
will never lose with these two opponents. The worst you can do
is tie. However, this is only for the beginning parts of the game.
The best time to do this is immediately after the Fire Caves.
You can get Squall's second best sword easily by doing this at
the very beginning of the game.

Missed cards: The following trick can be used to get cards missed
during the CC Quest and the Queen of Cards Quest. On Disc 4, all
the CC members are scattered around the Ragnorok, but only if
you have defeated the CC King earlier in the game. To get cards
missed in the Queen of Cards Quest, you will find the Queen on
the southern peninsula of the Esthar continent. She is not visible
on the world map, so you will have to do some searching. Note:
The CC members use various rules from around the world. The Queen
will always use all the rules.
You can find the Card Queen on the Abadan Plains, south of Esthar.
She will have any card you would have obtained during the Queen
of Cards side quest in the previous discs. Go to any of the CC
members or the Card Queen and win any rare card from him/her.
Using Quezacotl's Card Mod ability, you can refine it into a rare
item(s). Repeat this to get many rare items.

Obtaining rare cards: To obtain rare cards like Iguon, Tri-point, Gargantua,
Jumbo Cactuar, etc. just look at the bottom right corner of your
card stats when you win one. A list of two monsters will appear.
Keep carding the first monster until you get the card which has
the monster listed. Once you have got the card and you want another
one, keep carding the second monster until you get one. Then,
repeat this process.

Easily removing one card game rule: Go to the region that you want to remove the rule.

When you go to a new region and ask a card player to

the challenge, and talk to the player several times until he/she
only says the desired rule before accepting the challenge.

Easy Card Queen's quest: The Card Queen quest may be difficult part of the game
because of her random movements and her difficulty as an opponent.
Use the following information to save time. You should know that
she wants the Minimog, Sacred, Doomtrain, Kochocobo and Alexander
cards. When you play against her, you should give her every card
she wants in as few card games as possible. When she finally goes
to Dollet she will reveal all the locations of the rare cards
at once. There is a small probability that she will head to Dollet
when you give her one of the previously mentioned cards. If you
want to save time again, keep in mind that:
When she is in Balamb, she will probably go to Deling City (but
sometimes if you lose the Siren card to her she might go to Dollet).
When she is in Deling City, she will probably go to F.H.
When she is in Dollet, she will probably go to Deling City.
When she is in the Shumi village, she will probably go to Dollet
(and sometimes Deling City)
When she is in Winhill, she will probably go to Esthar.
When she is in Esthar, she will probably go to the space.
To get the five cards from The Card Queen herself, do not challenge
her until Disc 4. Then, find the aircraft and find Tear's Point.
Go southwest of Tear's Point and find the crash site. In there,
you will find the Queen. Challenge her in that site and all five
cards are easy pickings. Be careful as she will kill you if you
are a dumb player. Also, when you lose a precious card the PuPu,
Level 8-10 Cards, you might okay. That player will play the same
card you lost in the next game. Just challenge the person again
and depending on your luck you may win the card back.

Play cards with Zell: When Squall takes charge of Balamb Garden, compose
a party without Zell. If you go to the first floor, you will find

Getting the Debuchchocobo card in Disc
4: Defeat all the CC group members, the Card King, and
meet at least one time with the Card Queen. On the chain in Altemisia's
Castle, head to the northern door (nearest to the castle) and
you will find yourself on the world map. There's a chocobo forest
near here. Get a chocobo, then head to the island where you found
Edea's home. There is a desert on this island where you will find
the Ragnarok. Go in and have a card game against CC group Diamond
(the two girls that always talked each other at Balamb Garden
in the main hall).To find them, head to the control room. Take
the elevator and go straight ahead after the CC group Joker. Take

Best Cards: The best cards are Diablo, Vysage, Death Claw, and
Example: Tonberry 4 6 vs. 4 7 Death Claw
Since 6 and 4 are the closest, 6 is going to flip 4's card because
6 is bigger than 4. However, it is impossible to flip an A because
A's are the best. If you see a card with A, avoid it unless you
find a weaker side of the card that you can flip.

Easy opponent: Go to Timber. In the back alley that leads to the TV
tower is a drunk lying on the side of the streets. He is a terrible
opponent and is extremely easy to card, but also has good cards.
Since he is next to a save point, if you lose to him you can reset
to recover the lost card.
