Queen Of Cards

Hard difficulty, Great rewards
Unavailable on Disc 4
At the beginning of the game, you can find the Queen Of Cards (QoC) in Balamb near Balamb Station. Once you either win/lose a rare card from/to her, she will give you a hint as to her next destination. She is in the following 8 places: Balamb, Shumi Village, Dollet, Deling City, Winhill, Esthar, Fisherman's Horizon, and Lunar Gate.

The quest begins in Dollet. When speaking normailly with her, you will notice a 4th option here "About your artist father," that you can select. When you chose this, she will ask you for the MiniMog Card. You must lose this card to her in a game. Then her father will create a new card that you can find elsewhere. After giving her that card she moves to another region. If you chase her around the world again until she gets back to Dollet, you can lose to her the next card she wants and so on until you get all of the rare cards. You can retreive any of these cards you lost fom her little brother in Dollet. He is the child living with the artist one screen down from the pub. As soon as you give any of the cards the QoC wants, they will be placed in the boy's inventory. Any other cards lost to her will be have to won back from her normally. Here are some things to help you out.
