So I'm just curious as to how many people beat Regent Cid? I'm on my second attempt first time it was a draw then I lost? What do you get and how did you do it?

Just all the glories that come with saying that you beat a garden pest at Triple Triad...

Actually, I seem to recall that you get a Rebirth Ring if you beat him. He's not all that tough, though a bit of luck is involved. Save/reset trick can help if you lose. Make sure to save after winning your first two matches.

Sadly, Tetra Master really is equal parts luck and skill - you might have flipped all your opponent's cards with powerful cards of your own, victory looks assured despite the your opponent still has one card to go. He places his last card... and BAMN! The opponent's card gets into a card battle with one of your own, and wins, and then, due to arrows on every side proceeds to flip every other card on the screen. With the end result of the 'YOU LOOSE' screen and a feeling of helplessness as the enemy snatches victory from your grasp, as well as all your cards.

Still, speaking as a player of SE's online version (which is soon to shut down sadly :(), I much prefer Tetra Master over FFVIII's Triple Triad - at least then you can't have people boasting how great a player they are as there are less opportunities to cheat.

The real feeling of helplessness when it comes to playing Tetra Master on Final Fantasy IX is knowing that:

A.) Other than the card tournament, there are no rewards
B.) Even the satisfaction of pure completion is robbed from you, because if you do actually manage to spend the many, many hours it takes to perfect your deck, your only reward is a glitch!
