Gold Saucer Queen's Blood Challenges Guide - FF7 Rebirth

By

2 Comments

The Gold Saucer will become available in Chapter 8 of Final Fantasy VII Rebirth. It features lots of different mini games, such as Queen’s Blood which can be found in the Wonderment Square. You’ll notice that this isn’t the same old game mode that you know and love, as the "Gold Saucer" iconGold Saucer has put its own spin on it. This time around you’ll have a series of challenges which feature a unique gimmick, so if you want to come out victorious, you’ll need to play your cards in such a way that’ll help you get the most out of each gimmick. Additionally, the cards and positions your opponent plays will be random so we can’t help you with where to place each individual card.

There are six Gold Saucer Queen’s Blood Challenges to complete in chapter 8.

Quick Tips

  • We recommend that you attempt these challenges later in the game, as you’ll have more cards to your disposal
  • Challenge and beat every opponent up until this point of the game, as they have exclusive cards
  • Purchase the Dio Card from the "GP Exchange (Battle Square)" iconGP Exchange (Battle Square) for 150GP
  • Ignore the opposition and try to use the gimmick of each challenge to your advantage
  • Use our general deck and make slight adjustments per challenge

Gold Saucer Queen’s Blood Challenges

There are six available challenges for you to undertake in chapter 8 and if you want to jump to a specific challenge, hit one of the links below:

If you want to claim all of the rewards in the Gold Saucers version of Queen’s Blood, then you’ll need to complete a series of 12 challenges across both chapters 8 and 12, but before you attempt these challenges we recommend that you try and beat every QB opponent up until this point of the game, as this will give you a bigger pool of cards to choose from.

General Deck

Some of these challenges can be quite difficult, so we’ve created a general deck below which should give you a baseline to work with, but you will need to adjust the deck slightly for the individual challenges with the suggestions we make.

Challenge 1 - Support Card: Luxury Real Estate Strategy

To complete this challenge, you’ll want to slightly adjust the general deck to include the "141 Dio" icon141 Dio card and then follow the advice below:

This challenge will allow you to start the match with two Gigantuar Cards which increases the rank of your positions. As a result, you’ll be able to play high-ranking cards from the outset which will allow you to dominate the playing field. In order to complete this we recommend that you mulligan the majority of your cards until you have a starting hand that consists of more cards that cost three pawns, then you’ll want to place Gigantuars in the left and center tiles of the middle lane. By doing this you’ll be able to easily play high-ranking cards, such as Dio early on in the match (You can purchase this from the shops in the Gold Saucer).

Completing this challenge for the first time will reward you with the "114 Mythril Golem" icon114 Mythril Golem Card and 50 Gold Saucer Points. However, if you decide to replay this opponent, you’ll gain an additional 25 Gold Saucer Points per victory.

(1 of 2) Place the Gigantuar Card in the center

Place the Gigantuar Card in the center (left), to allow you to play high-ranking cards around it. (right)

Challenge 2 - Support Card: Succulent Succor Strategy

To complete this challenge, you’ll want to slightly adjust the general deck to include the "107 Chocobo & Moogle" icon107 Chocobo & Moogle, "095 Ifrit" icon095 Ifrit, and 141 Dio cards and then follow the advice below:

This challenge will allow you to start the match with a Cactrot Card which will enhance any cards already in play. To begin, you’ll want to mulligan your deck until you start with 107 Chocobo & Moogle, 095 Ifrit, and 141 Dio, as these will synergize with the Cactrot Card due to them all being buff cards. We managed to easily dominate this opposition by placing the two Cactrot Cards in the top left and bottom left tiles and then placing the Chocobo & Moogle, Ifrit, and Dio around them.

Completing this challenge for the first time will reward you with the "116 Grasptropod" icon116 Grasptropod Card and 60 Gold Saucer Points. However, if you decide to replay this opponent, you’ll gain an additional 30 Gold Saucer Points per victory.

(1 of 2) Place the Cactrot Cards in the top and bottom left tiles

Place the Cactrot Cards in the top and bottom left tiles (left), to boost the points of any cards you play around it. (right)

Challenge 3 - Gimmick Battlefield: Behind Enemy Lines Strategy

This challenge will make you begin the match on the opposite side of the playing field which will throw you for a loop. Unfortunately, the general deck won’t work for this challenge, so you’ll want a specialized deck that has cards that will claim tiles to the left rather than the right and you can find the perfect deck for this below. With this deck, you should be able to play the match as you would normally (with the randomization hopefully being on your side) and easily win this battle.

The deck below should help with this challenge as all of the cards have left-facing tiles:

Completing this challenge for the first time will reward you with the "117 Custom Valkyrie" icon117 Custom Valkyrie Card and 70 Gold Saucer Points. However, if you decide to replay this opponent, you’ll gain an additional 35 Gold Saucer Points per victory.

(1 of 2) Use the deck shown here

Challenge 4 - Support Card: Chadley the Callous Strategy

To complete this challenge, you’ll want to slightly adjust the general deck to include the "046 Chimera" icon046 Chimera, "042 Thug" icon042 Thug, and "021 Ogre" icon021 Ogre and then follow the advice below:

This challenge will allow you to start the match with a Chadley Card which will allow you to replace one of your cards on the board and increase the power of the cards around it. We managed to clear this stage by playing normally and then replacing the card on the second tile in the middle lane with Chadley to heavily boost the cards in all four corners. We recommend that you try using cards that have a higher power rating (046 Chimera, 042 Thug, and 021 Ogre for example) in the corners to maximize your score.

Completing this challenge for the first time will reward you with the "118 Gigatrice" icon118 Gigatrice Card and 90 Gold Saucer Points. However, if you decide to replay this opponent, you’ll gain an additional 45 Gold Saucer Points per victory.

(1 of 2) Once your side of the board has been filled out

Once your side of the board has been filled out (left), place the Chadley card on the second tile in the middle lane. (right)

Challenge 5 - Gimmick Battlefield: Ifrit’s 32-Bit Flames Strategy

To complete this challenge, you’ll want to slightly adjust the general deck to include the 095 Ifrit card and then follow the steps below:

This challenge will begin the match with a Polygonal Ifrit placed directly in the center of the battlefield. This will enhance any cards placed around it for both you and your opponent, so you’ll want to try and claim as many of the buffed tiles before they do. We managed to complete this challenge by starting the match with cards that have the ability to claim more tiles, such as the "001 Security Officer" icon001 Security Officer, 107 Chocobo & Moogle, and "013 Crystalline Crab" icon013 Crystalline Crab. As you progress through the match, you’ll eventually be able to start using cards that require more pawns, such as 095 Ifrit and the "108 Fat Chocobo" icon108 Fat Chocobo which will allow you to heavily boost your score if placed in any of the buffed tiles.

Completing this challenge for the first time will reward you with the "112 Materia Guardian" icon112 Materia Guardian Card and 120 Gold Saucer Points. However, if you decide to replay this opponent, you’ll gain an additional 60 Gold Saucer Points per victory.

(1 of 2) Claim most of the buffed tiles

Challenge 6 - Boot Camp Strategy

To complete this challenge, you’ll want to slightly adjust the general deck to include the 141 Dio, 021 "Ogre" iconOgre, 042 "Thug" iconThug, "098 Titan" icon098 Titan, and 095 Ifrit cards and then follow the advice below:

This challenge will require you to secure 50 points across three rounds to achieve the max rank (10 at the lowest rank) and each round’s gimmick will be similar to that of previous challenges. To do this, you’ll want to follow the tips provided above for that specific challenge but adjust your deck to include cards that will give you more points, such as "016 Devil Rider" icon016 Devil Rider, 021 Ogre, and 042 Thug, then accompany these with buff cards like 141 Dio, 098 Titan, and 095 Ifrit. Additionally, the Boot Camp will give you a set number of cards per each round, so you’ll want to mulligan any that don’t offer very many points before you start.

Completing this challenge for the first time will reward you with the 120 Sephiroth Card and 210 Gold Saucer Points if you manage to hit a minimum of 50 points. However, if you decide to replay this opponent, you can earn a total of 140 Gold Saucer Points every time you reach a minimum score of 50 (35x GP - 10, 30x GP - 45, 60x GP - 50).

(1 of 2) You’ll need to have at least 10 points

You’ll need to have at least 10 points (left), to obtain the sephiroth card. (right)

your recommended deck only contains 14/15 cards. and the only "guiding" is to use the 2 cards that the game gives you, has no information about how to play that deck, no placement strategies/tactics, no optimal starting hards or indication of which cards could be mulliganed for an easier win. You can do better than this..

Hey Spikey415, thanks for the feedback. Ultimately, Queen's Blood is RNG and what worked for us might not work for you, but I have updated our page to feature more suggestions for each challenge which should help. :)
