Friend Challenge Nodes Trick
       At some points of the game, maps will randomly place your friends into some challenge
nodes. The problem is, it will give you a hard time passing those nodes if you can't defeat your high leveled friend!
     - It would be better or easier if you have more friends whose level is lower than you though.
     - Sometimes, friends will still use the story mode decks, regardless of their level.

       Place your cards on the slots. Drag-and-drop monsters on the field, the hit BAM!
     - Press BAM when you have placed your chosen cards on your side of the field. This will
start the battle. Both your Monsters and those of your Opponent will attack each other, and
your Spells will take effect. The sequence always starts from the left-hand Channel.

     - The duel ends when one player has 0 Life points or when you surrender.
     - To learn more about the duel interface and how to duel, refer to the link below.

Infinite Duel

empty nodes or travel nodes that connect paths. Your goal is to find ambushes!

     - If you get defeated, just click on the "Try Again" option.
