Everything we know about Table Turf Battles in Splatoon 3

Table Turf Battle is a card game that requires you to build a deck based around Tetris-like shapes. There are over 150 cards to choose from and collect, and each card in your deck represents a shape that you can ink onto the battlefield to block your opponents. It's important to pay attention to your cards, as some will have special abilities that can help you against your enemies' more severe attacks.

You'll be able to practice your skills using the starter deck that is provided when you start the game, alongside other weapons and rewards. As you use cards and fill up the battlefield, you'll be awarded points that help determine the winner of the match. Each match is also determined by rounds, so you'll always have plenty of time to make your decision and choose the best cards to play!
