1. How to win in Cardfight Vanguard?

Your goal is to deal 6 damage to your opponent’s Vanguard. How to do that? Ride along with us through this mini-course, and you will be ready for your own Cardfight Journey. Let’s begin…


2. Knowing your cards

In Cardfight!! Vanguard, your cards are called “units”. They are your comrades and fight alongside you towards victory. There are two types of units: Normal units and Trigger units.

Normal units do not have a “Trigger” icon on the top right of the card.

Trigger units have a “Trigger” icon on the top right of the card. That icon gives a power boost and certain ability during the battle. (We will explain more later.)

Don’t worry about the other info on the card. All you need to remember now is:
2 types of units: Normal unit & Trigger unit.
4 types of trigger units: Critical, Front, Heal & Draw.


So far so good? Just a little more. 😀


Now, let’s dive into some basic information on a Cardfight!! Vanguard card.
