Notice of Rule Revision (Effective on 14 July)
What is Digimon ACE?
Digimon ACE are cards that can be played for a very low cost compared to other Digimon of the same level and with a new feature that allows them to digivolve without paying the cost during your opponent's turn. However, they have the disadvantage that you lose memory equal to the value specified in "Overflow" if they are removed from the battle area. Therefore, they are cards that need to be played with caution.
Changes in timing and effects with the introduction of Digimon ACE
①Removal of "Reaction" and conversion to "Counter Timing" and "Block Timing"
- What is "Counter Timing"?
It is the timing when you can exert a Counter effect when your opponent's Digimon attacks.
When an opponent's Digimon attacks, you can resolve the effect of "When your opponent’s Digimon attacks" and you can use the [Counter] effect only once per attack.
- What is "Block Timing?"
- It is the timing that comes after "Counter Timing" to block the opponent's attack. Digimon with [Blocker] can block at this timing to change the target of the attack.
②Addition of [Counter] effect
- What is a [Counter] effect?
- It is an effect that can be exerted only once per attack at "Counter Timing."
③Changess to the effect of "blockers"
- How was the effect of "Blocker" changed?
- The "Blocker" used to be an effect triggered by "Reaction", but with the removal of "Reaction", the rule has been changed. "<Blocker> (At blocker timing, by suspending this Digimon, it becomes the attack target.)"
Other rule changes
Addition of rule for redrawing hand.
During game preparation, the player can now redraw the first hand only once, returning all five cards. The game preparation steps have changed accordingly.
Please refer to the Rules Manual Ver. 3.0 for details.
Card Design Changes.
Lines indicating the card's color have been added around the Play Cost and Usage Cost. In addition, the evolution conditions that used to have separate icons for each color are now displayed as a single icon with a line around it to indicate the color of the card. Digi-Egg cards previously had no icon in the upper left corner of the card, but we have added an icon to indicate that the card is a Digi-Egg card and added a line to indicate the card's color, as well as the play cost and usage cost.
Rule changes due to modification of card text.
- ＜Security Attack＞ Text (Ver. 3.0)
- The keyword effect "Security Attack" will be changed to "Security A.". Other rules and rulings remain unchanged.
- ＜Blocker＞ Text (Ver. 3.0)
- In accordance with the new block timing, the effect text of the keyword effect "Blocker" will be changed as follows. ＜BIocker＞ (At blocker timing, by suspending this Digimon, it becomes the attack target.)
- Text Referring to Returning Revealed Cards to Deck (Ver. 3.0)
- Previously, card text that referred to returning cards revealed from deck and security to their original locations read, "Place the rest at [X] in any order." However, going forward, this text will now be shortened to read, "Return the rest to [X]." Rules behavior for these effects is otherwise unchanged, and you can choose the order to place the cards in when returning multiple cards.
- Text Referring to Placing Cards from Hand in Security or Decks (Ver. 3.0)
- Previously, card text that referred to placing cards from hand in security, decks, and other hidden areas, if referring to specific colors or types of cards (such as "a [X] card"), read "Reveal 1 [X] card from your hand and place it at the bottom of your security stack." However, this text has been shortened to read "Place 1 [X] card from your hand at the bottom of your security stack." Rules behavior for these effects is otherwise unchanged, and if the effect requires a card of a specific color or type, reveal the card to your opponent before placing it in the security stack or deck. If the text doesn't specify a condition for the card, and simply reads "Place 1 card," or "Place 1 card from your hand," place the card face down in the security stack or deck without revealing it.
- Effect Text for Placing Digimon and Tamers in Security (Ver. 3.0)
- Previously, effects that placed Digimon or Tamers in security stacks were written to read, "Place 1 of your (your opponent's) Digimon on top of your (your opponent's) security stack face down." However, this text has been shortened to read, "Place 1 of your (your opponent's) Digimon on top of the security stack." Rules behavior for these effects is otherwise unchanged, and cards should still be placed face down in security stacks when using these effects.
- Effect Text for Causing Digimon to Digivolve (Ver. 3.0)
- Previously, effects that caused one of your Digimon to digivolve read, "1 of your Digimon may digivolve into [X] for the digivolution cost." However, this text has been shortened to read, "1 of your Digimon may digivolve into [X]." Rules behavior for these effects is otherwise unchanged, and unless otherwise specified, the digivolution cost specified by the card should still be paid.
