Black Book: Battle-Puzzles Guide

Battle Puzzles are unique to this card battler game, a break from the intense fights and demanding use of more brainpower, which might be frustrating at times. Thankfully, you can now skip the battle if you want. On the other hand, if you enjoy the fun and want to know how to solve them, read no further!

Choose 1. Take the figurine

Then
Prepare to fight

You have 3 moves in this battle-puzzle.

1st Turn

You will notice the middle demon with 14HP intents to buff all demons for an additional 10HP, obviously you need to kill it first. Use Ognevitsa (9 damage) on him, then use Nikolay to attack him for 5 damage, that will kill him off.

Next you need to target the highest HP demon (30HP) on the right, he will disable your black words next turn, nothing you can do about it except to use all the black words on the first turn, and to take maximum advantage of well-verse. Use Korkusha (Waste 5) on him.

Finally use Blood-burn to apply waste on enemies whenever you take damage later.

2nd Turn

This is an easy one. You only have white words to use, obviously don’t choose Headless as you want to be damaged to trigger Blood-burn’s waste. Choose the 3 remaining white words, starting from Audelai, Altar, Lazarus and end turn. The right demon will attack first (removing your shield), followed by the left demon.

3rd Turn

Use Skorchen (12 damage) on the right demon, Perepolah (3 damage to all), and Ruda (2 damage) on the left demon. That will kill them off with the waste damage.


Creaky Woods

This is Nikolay’s main quest. It will appear on the map as “Creaky Woods”.

Prepare to fight

You have 3 moves in this battle-puzzle.

1st Turn
The Huge Log (63HP) intends to use Rotten Bark (Waste 999) on you. You have to use Imperishable Phelonion on yourself (Waste restores health instead of dealing damage). Then, use Headless for damage absorption (as Huge Log will use attack 999 during his 2nd turn). Finally, use Enaha Demon to remove the Ward status on him.

2nd Turn
You need to damage him now. Use Korkusha (Waste 5), Urazi, then Herod’s Bones (Double Waste).

3rd Turn
Use Korkusha (Waste 5), Tryasovitsa (Inflict damage equals to Waste x2) and Ruda (damage 2), along with Nikolay’s attack (5 damage). He will be left with 14HP and the 14 Waste damage will kill him off.

Bonus: At the end of the battle, during the cut scene with the Crazy Woman, answer [Changeling] for +200 experience.
