The “Battle Spirits Special Research Department” regularly ensures game balance through the examination of the game environment to ensure Battle Spirits continues to be a fun TCG
Regarding the card [Booboo Man] which was given out during the collaboration with Seibuen Amusement Park. After much research , from 1st June 2017 onwards, this card will be restricted.

As this card allows you to have unlimited copies, there are cases where there are hundreds of copies in a deck, making the game very slow, destroying the fun of the game and obstructing the flow of events. Hence we have decided to restrict the number of cards in a deck.

In order to still retain the card's fun factor, we created a new Restricted zone for [Booboo Man] which is Restricted Card <20>

* Effective from June 1st 2017
