Encore is a 3-star trap card that causes the effects of, , , , and panels it is placed on to trigger twice. This effect extends to x2 variants of these panels. Triggering it on any other panel does nothing.
The best panels to play Encore on depends on the playstyle of the user. Playing this card on apanel or a panel can be risky, but also rewarding. Doing so could trick other players into avoiding that panel in fear of landing on a detrimental trap, which would allow the player to get a double helping of stars or cards the next time around the board. Of course, if someone else lands on the space, they get the benefit of the trap. For win-focused players, Encore should instead be primarily placed on panels. This gives the player more chances to obtain wins as well as forces anyone else who lands on it to to do battle twice. This can be especially effective during a , as many characters have trouble surviving a battle against the boss, let alone two of them. Playing Encore on a drop space can also be a good idea, as it will force anyone who lands on it to roll twice for star loss.
Playing Encore on any other type of panel is a waste, since it will have no effect. Because of this,can cripple this card by moving it to a less desirable, or even useless, space. Standard trap counters like and will also negate the effects of this card.
- The effects of Encore are very similar to the effects of x2 panels. The exception is the panel. While a panel triggers one battle that grants double wins, Encore will trigger two battles.
