When Cards Collide

14: Integral Victory
Edit 2: Retro-activate Speech


Last Solution:

            With Riryoku in this puzzle, there are some interesting answers. Thanks to everyone that pointed them out.

1.      Tribute Witch of the Black Forest to Tribute Summon Airknight Parshath.
a)      Use Witch’s effect to add Marauding Captain to your hand.

2.      Pay 500 Life Points to activate the effect of Ultimate Offering and Normal Summon Marauding Captain (your LP now 100).
a)      Use Marauding Captain’s effect to Special Summon Tribe-Infecting Virus to the field in Attack Position.

3.      Activate Mage Power on Tribe-Infecting Virus to increase its ATK to 2600.

4.      Attack Berserk Gorilla with Tribe-Infecting Virus. 
a)   Your opponent will now activate Sakuretsu Armor (as your other damages are 1200 and 1900). 
b)   You chain Enemy Controller by tributing Tribe-Infecting Virus to take control of Berserk Gorilla. Sakuretsu Armor’s effect disappears as it no longer has a target.

5.      Attack your opponent directly with your monsters for 2000 + 1900 + 1200 = 5100 damage

Final Result: Him - 0, You – 100 


Problem - Win the Game in One Turn:

            And we plod blindly on! No idea how difficult any of you will find this one. It’s just strange. For once your opponent’s Life Points aren’t that high and your are high enough for two extra summons.

13/7/5: Most of you now know this but, there are ONLY three times at which you can activate Ultimate Offering.
1. Your Main Phase 1.
2. Your Main Phase 2.
3. Your opponent's Battle Phase.

Enjoy, and remember equip cards are attached to whatever happens to be below/above them.

P.S. You can’t activate the traps, or use Ultimate Offering, while Jinzo is still around. Last time I used him, many of you seemed to forget that.

Sadly, or not, depending on your point of view, I won't be sending in an article next week as I am going off on a course in the middle of nowhere and don't know if I will have access to a computer or Yu-Gi-Oh cards. You lot have another ten minutes of free time next week. Do something constructive, like fix your deck, plant a tree, take a walk, or buy a CED off a kid a school for £2 and a Swiss Roll. Enjoy!
