Battle Zone
バトルゾーン (Batoru Zōn)
Japanese Wiki: 645

The Battle Zone is the gameplay zone between your shields and your opponent's shields.


Creatures are put into this Public Zone where they can battle against other creatures or attack players. Cross gears are generated into this zone where they can then be crossed onto other creatures. There is no limit to the number of cards that can be in the battle zone.
