Game Flow
The game is turn-based, and each turn has 4 phases.
Start Phase
Action Phase
Charge Phase
End Phase
Start Phase
Nothing is done in this phase, unless another rule(s) conflicts with this rule.
Action Phase
Stage 1 : Pre-movement Confirmation

1. Choose 1 servant and then pick the direction that you want this servant to move towards. (No movement is done yet.)
2. Then, choose 1 command card from your hand that belongs to the servant you chose to move with, and then place it into the Discard/Trash Pile.

Movement Rules Trash / Discard Pile Placement Guide
Movememnt Rule
Trash Pile Rules
  • A servant can only move to any spot does not contain an allied servant, and also cannot move in your own Master Area.
  • If the player is unable to move due to not having the command card of any of their own servants that is still on the battlefield, the player discards all cards on hand, and then draw 5 cards. Their turn ends immediately after this.
  • All cards on the trash pile is placed with its vertical side up.
  • Cards in the trash pile ends up turned 90 degrees only due to skill card effects.
Stage 2 : Battle/Combat
  • This sub-phase only begins when one servants moved into a spot with an opposing servant.
  • The one moves during that turn is the ATTACKER, while the one who is getting invaded is the DEFENDER.

1. Both players choose 3 Command Cards from their hand and place them on the BATTLE slot in the middle of the playsheet, face down. After that, both player reveals their chosen command cards simultaneously (at the same time).
Players may use Command Cards that don't belong to the attacking/defending servant.

2. Check for any chains.

  • QUICK CHAIN: If all 3 Command Cards revealed are QUICK, place 1 token on the START box of the QUICK CHAIN counter.
    On the next turn, POWER +7 for the player who did the QUICK CHAIN this turn.
  • ARTS CHAIN: If all 3 Command Cards revealed are ARTS, place 1 token on the START box of the ARTS CHAIN counter.
    On the next 2 subsequent turns, POWER +3 for the player who did the ARTS CHAIN this turn.
  • BUSTER CHAIN: If all 3 Command Cards revealed are BUSTER, the player who did the BUSTER CHAIN gets POWER +3 for the current turn.
  • BRAVE CHAIN: If all 3 Command Cards revealed are of the same servant who is the ATTACKER/DEFENDER, that player gets POWER +(the lowest POWER among the 3 cards), for the current turn.
Token placing

3. Both players calculate the total POWER of all their command cards, plus any chain bonuses (if any).

TOTAL POWER = (1st Card's POWER) + (2nd Card's POWER)
+ (3rd Card's POWER) + (CHAIN BONUS, if any)

4. After that, both players compare their TOTAL POWER. The player with the higher TOTAL POWER wins the battle.
If the ATTACKER wins, the DEFENDING Servant is ELIMINATED.
If the DEFENDER wins, or the result is a TIE, the ATTACKER must simply return to their previous location.
Compare power

When a servant is ELIMINATED (消滅?), the figure representing the servant is removed from the battlefield, and, if the servant's skill card is on the playsheet, it is also removed. Both the Command Card and Status Card of the ELIMINATED servant remain on the board. --- 5. Both players place the COMMAND CARDS used during the battle into the TRASH zone.

Stage 3 : Movement
Movement is only resolved if the DEFENDING servant is ELIMINATED. If the preceding BATTLE step ends in a TIE or if DEFENDING servant wins, the ATTACKING servant does not move.
Charge Phase
Both players draw cards from the COMMAND DECK until their hand contains 5 COMMAND CARDs.
【Whenever a Player do not have enough cards in the COMMAND DECK to draw from】
  • The player who does not have enough cards in the COMMAND DECK to draw from must:
  1. Remove 1 card in the TRASH/DISCARD zone from the game. (This is permanent and cannot be undone via any effect.)
  2. Shuffle all cards remaining in the TRASH zone and form a new COMMAND DECK with those cards.
  3. Then, the player will draw cards from the COMMAND DECK until the player's hand size reaches 5.
End Phase
Both players move the CHAIN COUNTER 1 step forward.
This can only be done if there is a counter already on the chain grid due to an ARTS/QUICK CHAIN that was done either in the same turn or sometime before. If there is no chip/token on the CHAIN COUNTER, there is nothing that needs to be done during this phase.

In the event that a CHAIN COUNTER moves out of the grid, the token/chip is removed from the CHAIN COUNTER instead.
(Marks the end of the chain effects.)

The turn ends and the opposing player gets the next turn. The process is repeated until the game ends.

【Rules Regarding NP】

The action of rotating an ARTS CARD on the TRASH pile is called "NP".
When a skill card has 【Cost: Exhaust NP X】 (【コスト:NP〇枚を消費】?), the controlling MASTER will need to fulfill the condition by rotating X number of ARTS CARD in the TRASH pile. Any ARTS CARD exhausted will not be refreshed in any way, other than being shuffled back into the deck due to "Lack of Card in Command Deck" rule.

Before The Game Begins
Party Setup Select 1 Skill for each Servant in your party. The skills must originally belong to that Servant. Servants are not allowed to use Skill Cards that belonged to a different Servant.
Game Setup
  • Place the 3 skill cards on the playsheet, aligned based on which Servant it is for, faced-down.

This is done before the movement phase.

  1. Select 1 Skill Card of any Servants that you control (as long as the Servant is not Eliminated), and then flip it face-up. [Skills with Trigger (トリガー?) keyword are not allowed to be activated in this manner.]
  2. Resolve the Skill Card's effects.
  3. After the effect is resolved, the Skill Card is then removed from the game. (It cannot return to the game by any means)
    (Skill Cards with the Continuous (常駐?) keyword are not removed after the effect resolves.)
Continuous (【常駐】?)
  • After activating a Skill Card with this keyword, it remains face-up throughout the whole game, and stays in game until the corresponding Servant is Eliminated.
  • As long as the controlling Servant is not eliminated, it's effect lasts throughout the whole game, unless stated otherwise.

If the servant is eliminated, its skill card is removed from the game, regardless of it being activated or not.
