Re: FF8-Triple Triad...no spoilers plz, I'm only on disc 2!

Oct 31, 2003

,What happens when you use the rule called Diff?
,
,
,

With the Diff trading rule, the number of cards you win is due to the difference in your score and the loser's. If you won 8 to 2, you'd get all of your opponent's cards; 7 to 3, four cards, and so on. While All is better, it tends to "de-evolve" after a while into Direct, which really, really sucks (you only win the cards you turn over during the game). Diff just de-evolves back into One.

,

In order to get Diff in my game, I first had to repeatedly challenge the Queen of Cards until she used it, then I had to make it the dominant trading rule (just by playing a lot in one area) and then spread it from place to place.

Hmm, that sounds like a cool rule!  I think I'll be making a visit to the Queen of Cards this morning...

Have fun. . .the Queen of Cards Quest is one of the hardest sidequests that I have ever done.  It is almost impossible to complete the card quest with the Direct rule, Random rule, or Difference rule.  If you have any questions about the quest or where the newly-made cards get sent to, then PM me.

It's incredibly easy, however, if you've manipulated the rules to be Open everywhere.

And what do you mean, it's impossible to complete with Diff?

Well, it was just a card game, but, well, it does help you get to the second moon in disk 5...

Did anyone else get totally addicted to that damn card gane in FF8?  I have. 

,

I'm trying to get at least one of every card, especially the player cards.  I'll get more of each card if I can make something good with them.  In the past few days, I think I've spent more hours on the card game than advancing through the plot of the game!  IMO, Triple Triad is way better than any of the mini-games in FF7...what do y'all think?

I loved playing it, it's so much fun, but I hate when you get the random rule, it blows.

In order for the queen's father to make new cards for you, you must lose the correct card to the queen, when you have the Difference rule on. . .it makes things a little harder than the One rule, don't you think?

Helloooo?  I asked for no spoilers, that means don't hint to other parts of the game!  Please pay attention to things like that.    If I wanted help or spoilers, I would have asked!

The only five disc game I know of is Riven. Is Myst' sequel....Maybe he's referring to that...or maybe he's gone crazy.
