Beginner’s Guide to Monster Train

What will the cards reveal?

Playing Monster Train is a lot of fun, but getting truly established as a serious player can be very intimidating. That's why it's good to follow these tips in order to maximize your success and reduce wasted time.

5 best tips for playing Monster Train

  • Be pickier with what trials you take, as you don't need to do every single one. Save time and practice energy on trials that are more specialized for your game approach. Consider your units available and whether they would perform well in a trial.
  • Consider the role of each unit type. You will not do very well by placing tanky-type units in the back of the battle. This may seem obvious, but it's worth a second consideration of your current lineup before moving forward.
  • Keep track of your enemies and what is needed to take them down. For example, an enemy may have the ability to cast your own spell back at you. Ignoring these details can easily result in major losses.
  • Save your money, but also don't be afraid to spend. There are some items that are only at certain shops, so buy an item if you really need it. At the same time, don't waste all of your money buying out every shop.
  • Consider your upgrade stones and final idea path before choosing. You will have to choose which way you want to go when you upgrade (ember, draw, etc.) and just deciding randomly can have negative consequences.

The best traits to have when playing Monster Train are patience and pickiness. Think carefully about your ideal journey and make decisions that reflect that, instead of blindly upgrading. Analyze both your enemies and your own units before entering any fight. Save money and spend it wisely, as this will help you afford important things when you need them.
