You've waited long since the teaser, but it's finally here: The Triple Triad DDFF Expansion!
Starting right now you can buy the DDFF packs from the Triple Triad store. The packs are the same price as the FFVIII set, but these packs grant you the rare chance of obtaining a character card! Since the character cards span 3 card levels, it would be most unfair to keep them from you! I wouldn't dare. You know the drill; the more expensive packs give you a greater chance of obtaining higher level cards, much like the FFVIII set.
So, what are you waiting for? You all just got Gil, go buy some packs!
Many thanks to the Triple Triad team, existing of Balguna, Kayarine, Khell, Kraid and Kurayami. They made this possible.
If you find any errors in the cards' names or values, don't hesitate to tell me about it. Getting them ready for use took a lot of mindless typing and I can't imagine I didn't make a typo or 2.
How about a contest?!
The details are quite simple: If you have a card and can explain a reference that we had in mind using the card's values (not all the cards have references, mind you...), we'll give you a point for it. Once all the references are found/enough time has passed, we'll crown the winner (who may get a reward for it). And no, none of the people who helped make these cards can participate.
If you want to look at a list of the cards, check out the thread that our lovely Kayarine just posted here.
When you answer, please include the following in your post:
-An image of the card(s) in question
In the event that references encompass more than 4 cards (possible? Maybe... Who knows?!) just mention the similarity without listing every card.
Additional rules will include:
-One post per hour
-One card/group guess per post
I'll try and keep track of all the ones found here on this post to let people know which ones are already guessed. No points for duplicate guesses! No penalty for wrong answers, either. Here's a small hint: Not all of the references are solo cards!
Here's an easy one to get everyone started. Remember the teaser thread?
Sephiroth's values were placed on the bottom as a direct reference to Aerith's "weakness" to being defeated from above.
The links below will go to the point where the correct guess was made, just check a couple posts after that to find the explanation for the reference you're looking for.

Hmmmm Heaven and Hell reference, Ultima's highest value is top (Heaven) and Zalera highest value at the bottom (Hell)
My guess on this one is that Ultima fell from grace? 8 to 7?
...I have no idea what I'm supposed to be looking for.
EDIT: I don't know about that Heaven - Hell reference.
In their lore, Ultima aided Souls in their reincarnation while Zalera judged men upon their death.
I guess it can be considered damnation :3
Got it right xD
In fact, it was Mateus who 'Protected and Ruled' the underworld.

Thanks to Galadin for the awesome signatures
Tabi's is right on the money!
Ultima the High Seraph represents the angel-like "salvation", while Zalera the Death Seraph represents the devil-like "damnation". Excellent work! That's one of the harder ones for sure XD
Zodiark can have another guess since his guess came while I was confirming for Tabi's guess.
Sub-Part numbers are a reference to his class, while the A is a reference to his Ego :3
I think. idk.
Thanks to Galadin for the awesome signatures
I'll give you the credit for that even though you're slightly off :P
Onion Knight has his strongest value on the top because his mind is supposedly his greatest asset against stronger enemies, while his ability to use both magic and melee effectively represent his balanced values everywhere else.
