Basic B&D mechanics

In B&D you will use a deck consisting of 6 cards and you will have to conquer as many boxes as possible on a map. The player with the most squares wins the game. If you win, you can buy cards from your opponent's deck using a specific currency.

This means that, by taking on him multiple times, you can basically build his entire deck if you want. This mechanic is very important, as it is necessary to complete the mission that unlocks the optional class of Gambler.

Structure of a match

A B&D match will always be divided into four phases:

  • Choice of rules: at the beginning of the game it will be possible to change up to two rules, which can be selected from a list by pressing the “+” key.
  • Choice of deck: you can choose to use one of your three decks, preferably the best one for the occasion.
  • Start of the game: after choosing the deck, the real game begins. A coin flip will decide who goes first.
  • Conquer the cards opponents: at the end of the game, the winner will have the opportunity to take opposing cards through the points earned during the game. If the points are not enough, it will be necessary to repeat the game, as you will gradually keep all the cards bought in the various attempts.


A win will earn you two rewards: points and opposing cards.

The points will be calculated based on the player's rank and the rules applied, while the cards won will be decided by the number of points available.

Card Effects

There are various effects that the cards will give to a territory, useful for increasing your chances of victory or decreasing those of the opponents. These are of two types:

  • Fortification: adds a shield to a square, protecting the territory from a single poisoning, neutralizing or flanking operation.
  • Poisoned land: it will poison a square by starting a countdown of 3 turns, at the end of which the square will return to neutral.

Strategies to win

Learn the basic rules, all you have to do is jump into the game and try to win!

The main terms

It is not possible to win in any type of game without knowing the meaning of the terms used.

Building a good deck

Having learned the terms of the game, it remains to understand how to create a noteworthy game deck, since it will be with what you will have to play.

The main advice is to obviously adapt to the rules of the game and to choose only a Character Card not present on the field and with a permanent effect.

You can allocate the other five cards to the monsters that will occupy the territories, bringing you a Class Card if possible to enhance a certain family of monsters.

Useful tips and strategies

Some Character Cards, recognizable by the medal present on the card, have a permanent effect that affects the entire playing field.

Since by regulation there can only be one permanent effect on the field, remember to play them after your opponent to override its effect and make yours prevail.

Also, neutralizing cards with a powerful permanent effect will be the top priority to ensure victory.

It will be possible to conquer the opposing territories encircling them vertically, horizontally and diagonally. Use this technique to put the opponent's territory in the middle of yours and take it.

Also, always aim at the corners of the board and never at the center, as doing so is easier to make encirclings a few turns later.
