In Mallboro, each player is allowed to use a certain
combination of cards based on his/her Card Club Level.
There are only two restrictions in place: Total Card
Cost and Rare Cards.
order to gain a level, you must gain 5 experience points.
Each official match within a tournament or league is
worth one experience. This does not mean winning a whole
tournament/league, but merely a match within it.
There is also a Rare
Bonus where for each Boss Card or GF Card
you possess, you gain a level boost: +1 for Boss, +2
Card Cost Restriction
Card Cost (TCC) is the sum of the card levels you intend
to play with. This sum cannot exceed your own Card Club
Level. You begin as a Level 5, which means you can only
use five Level 1 Cards. As you advance your level, you
gain more options for card combinations.
1 -- Level 10:
Three Level 1 cards (1+1+1), one Level 2 card (2), and
one Level 5 card (5).
TCC = (1+1+1)+2+5 = 10
2 -- Level 10:
Five Level 2 cards (2+2+2+2+2).
TCC = (2+2+2+2+2) = 10
Final Fantasy VIII, each of the card levels
had a name: 1-5 were Monster Cards, 6-7 were Boss Cards,
and 8-9 were GF Cards. The Rare Cards restriction means
that all Boss Cards and GF Cards are rare and must be
owned by the player in order to use them.
