Dueling Decks is a Top Trumps style card game that pits players against Zenco the Magnificent. The object of each game is to capture all the opponents cards by comparing attributes of different Neopian characters. It was released on 4 December 2009 and was the tenth game in the New Game Challenge.

How to play[edit]

At the start of the game, each player is dealt ten cards of a possible forty. Each card features a different Neopian character, and ranks them in three categories - courage, charisma, and intelligence. The player starts the game - they must choose one category from their first card and see if it beats the same category on Zenco's card. The player with the highest score in that category wins the round and captures their opponent's card. The game continues until one player has captured all twenty cards in play.

The user's score is determined by how many times they have won one of Zenco's cards. To get the highest scores, the user must allow Zenco to recapture some of the cards and take them away from him again.

There are three modes of play. In easy mode, if the user loses a card, they can continue to chose the next category, and each card capture is worth 25 points. In normal mode, Zenco points at each category in turn until the player clicks to stop - the category he stops over is the category that is played. Each card capture is worth 50 points. Finally, in hard mode, Zenco will chose the category without the player's influence at all, and each card capture is worth 100 points.

The user can chose to swap their card with the bonus card, Nightsteed, once per game. This card has fairly high statistics in all categories, but can be beaten in each category by certain other cards. Win or lose, Nightsteed is discarded after that round, and if the user lost the round, Zenco will only get the original card the user swapped out.
