Databook Contents

As a continuation of the daizenshuu line of guides, two extra volumes cataloging the “Dragon Ball Carddass” cards were released in early 1996 following the end of the Dragon Ball Z TV series. This extra volume covers the principle “Carddass Main Series” of cards, consisting of 1,050 total cards, that were released by Bandai from November 1988 to December 1995 (Parts 1-25) in Japan. The “Main Series” of Carddass cards would also go on to cover the Dragon Ball GT TV series in Parts 26-30, but these GT sets weren’t available until after this extra volume was published and are therefore not covered. Although this book is sometimes referred to by fans as “Daizenshuu 8”, it was actually released almost one month prior to Daizenshuu 7.

Complete Explanation! Dragon Ball Carddass Perfect History
128

The chart highlights public events, Bandai unveiling new card vending machines, Carddass merchandise and publications, television commercials, and anything else rather significant in the history of the Dragon Ball Carddass card game.
Complete Instructions! Dragon Ball Carddass Official Rules
132
This section provides the card game’s official rules broken down into eight simple steps:

  • Step 1 — The Card Battle Begins!
    Any number of players can participate, but a minimum of two players is required. The deck of cards should be shuffled, six cards dealt to each player, and the deck placed in the middle of the players with the cards facing down.
  • Step 2 — Now, Compete!
    On the count of three, each player lays down a battle card from the six cards in their hand.
  • Step 3 — The Outcome?!
    Compare the BP values on the face of each player’s battle card to see which is larger. The players with the smaller BP values can either concede their losing cards to the winner or continue to play an additional card to try and win the hand. If the BP values are the same, then the player who has the Dragon Ball with the most stars on the back of their card wins the hand.
  • Step 4 — Try to Reverse it With a Special Rule Card!
    All initial losing players who choose to continue the hand can play a special rule card to try and increase their original battle card’s BP in order to win the hand.
  • Step 5 — Using Scouter Battle!
    Prior to beginning the game, all players must decide if this will be a “Scouter Battle” game. If the game has been declared a “Scouter Battle”, then all players will utilize the skills hidden on their battle card’s scouter fields throughout the game, even if it is to their disadvantage. After all opponents have played their special rule cards, each player will then use a “Scouter” to check their battle card’s scouter field and apply the hidden skills appropriately.
  • Step 6 — The End of the Battle!
    After all rule cards and scouter fields (if applicable) have been applied to the battle cards in play, the player with the largest BP value wins the hand. The winner collects all of the cards in play and places them in a stack in front of himself.
  • Step 7 — For the Next Battle!
    At the end of each hand all players must draw additional cards from the middle deck of cards until each player has six cards in their hand. The above process (steps 2-6) is repeated until the game ends.
  • Step 8 — The One That Wins!
    The game ends when either a “Game Over” card is played or the middle deck has no more cards. The player that has collected the most cards during the game by winning battles is declared the winner.
Certain Kill Instructions! Dragon Ball Carddass Technique & Technique
134
This section provides the reader with some useful playing tips, the best 5 card combo techniques, and even some underhanded techniques you can use to defeat your opponents.
Dragon Ball History Special Edition
139
The final page of the book is a perforated sheet of card stock with four exclusive “Dragon Ball Carddass” special cards. Each card features Akira Toriyama’s cover illustrations for the first daizenshuu guide books and can be removed from the page. However, most used copies of this extra daizenshuu are missing this sheet, and finding one still intact is quite rare.
               

Databook Staff Credits

It should be noted that although Akira Toriyama is listed as the author of this databook, he actually had very little involvement with the production of its content, if any at all. Toriyama makes it quite clear in most of his daizenshuu introductions that “they” (Shueisha) are responsible for putting these together, and he is often graciously humble in thanking them for all their hard work in sorting through his exhaustive series.
