Special tips from Cameron

These are some little pieces of advice I have towards playing BOS. They'll be a bit all over the place!

  • You may find yourself in a situation where you do not know what to do. In this situation, the best move is not to surrender. Instead, remember this moment and prepare to avoid it during your next game. Remember that your opponent is human too and will make mistakes!

  • You may believe your deck is not good enough to compete with the other players. Sometimes, that is true. Admittedly, some combinations of cards are just worse against others. But if you're dedicated enough and put in the effort, or perhaps even changing a few cards, you can overcome any obstacle.

  • If you lose a match, always ask for advice afterwards, even if you think you know what they'll say. The best way to improve is to play against people who you can learn from, but if you're a smart enough player, you can learn a lesson from every single match you play, or even the ones you see.

  • Have fun! While this game is designed to be as competitive as possible, it is still fun to play with your favorite cards!

  • You can get a guaranteed direct attack if your summons have enough strength. You can use this tactic to deal enough damage to your opponent to win in a pinch, or grind out your opponent slowly towards victory.

  • Never think of a card linearly. Try analyzing it while also looking at other cards of the same color to learn its interactions and how it can be used.

  • Strength is a dynamic thing. Sometimes, it may be best to sacrifice your own summons to get your opponent's summons to a strength you're more comfortable with.

  • Remember to be creative when building your deck. If you are just copying what people are saying is really good, your opponents will know how to counter it. Either come up with a new strategy using those cards, or throw in your own ideas in there to give it some identity.
