Tableturf Battle is an in-universe collectible card game inspired by Turf War battles but turn-based and designed for two players. Both players use the cards in their customizable decks to add ink patterns to a grid-like board, competing to have the most ink on the board at the end of the game.

Tableturf Battle is popular in the Splatlands and can be played at any Tableturf Battle Dojo.


Tableturf Battle was announced on 10 August 2022 during the Splatoon 3 Direct. It was released with the launch of Splatoon 3. Online Tableturf Battle was confirmed on 23 February 2023 to release at the start of Fresh Season 2023.


Main article: List of Tableturf Battle cards in Splatoon 3

There are currently 266 cards to collect. The cards are based on weapons, characters, enemies, and other Splatoon concepts such as Tower Control.

Splattershot Jr. card


The face of every card has:

  • a name at the top,
  • an illustration in the center,
  • an 8-by-8 square grid containing an ink pattern in the lower-right corner,
  • a number inside a diamond in the lower-left corner equal to the number of squares the pattern covers, and
  • a Special Attack cost, indicated by the number of Special Space squares that are shown at the bottom.

The ink pattern depicted in the grid is added to the board when the card is played. Most card patterns contain exactly one Special Space, indicated by their unique color.

A card's Special Attack cost is typically proportionate to its size, roughly equal to one Special Point per three spaces (rounded up). Cards that do not feature a Special Space have a lower Special Attack cost than other cards of the same size.

There are three levels of card rarity: Common, Rare, and Fresh. The color of the card's name and the diamond in the lower-left corner correspond to this rarity, being either purple, yellow, or multi-colored respectively.

Each card has a sequence number that is not shown on the card but can be used for sorting. For example, the .52 Gal card is No. 7.

Each card has an upgrade level that affects the card's appearance. The level is indicated using one, two, or three stars.

Acquiring cards

Every player receives a Starter Deck from Staff at the Tableturf Battle Dojo upon speaking to them for the first time.[2] This deck is always comprised of these 15 cards in this order.

Players can earn either normal or "fresh" card packs by increasing their Tableturf Battle rank[3] or catalog level. The Shell-Out Machine also has a 4% chance to dispense normal packs, but currently does not offer the opportunity to dispense fresh card packs. The player can find up to seven card packs by exploring Alterna as well. A pack contains five random cards,[3] with a fresh pack containing one guaranteed Fresh card. Players cannot own more than one copy of a card;[3] duplicates are converted to a certain number of card bits based on their rarity.[3][4] Players can spend card bits to acquire new cards or upgrade the appearance of existing cards.[3]

Upgrading cards

Upgrading a card from ★ to ★★ changes its background image.[5]

Upgrading a card from ★★ to ★★★ adds a holographic foil layer.[5]

Card bits

Card bits can be used to create cards or upgrade existing ones. Card bits can be acquired by getting duplicates of cards the player already has from normal or fresh card packs. The amount of card bits the player gets depends on the rarity of the card. The maximum number of card bits a player can have at one time is 999, after which, any card bits acquired will not be added to the total and will disappear.

Card bits acquired Rarity of the card
1 Common
5 Rare
20 Fresh

Card bits can be used to make cards that the player do not have.

Card bits needed Rarity of the card
5 Common
15 Rare
40 Fresh

Lastly, card bits can be used to upgrade cards that the player has already collected.

Card bits for ★★ Card bits for ★★★ Rarity of the card

20 40 Rare
30 60 Fresh


A deck contains 15 cards. A player can save up to 32 decks, assigning a name and a card sleeve design to each one. When selecting or editing a deck, the total number of spaces covered by the ink patterns of cards in the deck is shown.

When the player receives the Starter Deck, it is automatically saved to their first deck slot with the name "Starter Deck" and the default sleeves.


New sleeves can be unlocked by reaching certain Tableturf ranks or by defeating a non-jellyfish (except Jelonzo, Jelfonzo, and Jel La Fleur) rival 30 times on Level 3.

Crusty Sean's sleeve design is available as a Wandercrust reward.

A game lasts 12 turns. Each turn, working simultaneously, both players choose a card from a hand of four cards and decide where to place that card's ink pattern on the board. Players may also pass, discarding one card from their hand and gaining a Special Point.

Two cards of equal value overlapping each other, creating neutral spaces. Note that the Heavy Splatling's Special Space does not turn into a neutral space, as that would only happen if another Special Space was in the same spot.

Ink placement

A card's ink pattern must be placed orthogonally or diagonally adjacent to spaces that already contain the player's ink. On a normal turn, it cannot overlap existing ink.

If both players try to place their ink patterns in the same spot, one of two things happens:

  • If the two cards have different numbers, then the card with the larger ink pattern is placed first, and the card with the smaller ink pattern is placed second. The smaller pattern covers up the larger one.[6][7] However, Special Spaces can only be covered by other Special Spaces.
  • If the two cards have the same number, then both cards add their ink patterns to the board at the same time. Spaces where the patterns overlap become neutral walls and cannot be inked again. Special Spaces do not become walls unless both are on the exact same square.

Special Spaces and Special Attacks

When a Special Space on the board has no empty spaces adjacent to it (including diagonally), the space begins to glow with a fiery effect. When this happens, the player that the space belongs to earns a Special Point. Special points can also be earned when passing turns.

A player can spend Special Points to play a card as a Special Attack, allowing the card's ink pattern to be placed over existing ink (but not Special Spaces or Walls) and replace it. When a card is played as a Special Attack, its ink pattern must be placed orthogonally or diagonally adjacent to one of the player's own Special Spaces on the board.

End of game

The player with more ink spaces on the board at the end of the game wins. However, a player who resigns always loses, regardless of how many ink spaces they have.

Rank and rewards

Players earn Tableturf Points at the end of each game. 40 points are awarded for a loss or draw, while 100, 115, or 130 points are awarded for a win against a rival, depending on the rival's level. For a computer-controlled player, 115, 130 or 150 points can be awarded. This value is fixed for each player that appears, seemingly at random. No points are awarded for resigning (giving up).

At certain point thresholds, the player's Tableturf Rank increases, allowing access to new opponents and unlocking new Tableturf Battle stages (for use when testing out decks in the editor), as well as Splashtag and Emote options.[3]

After the player reaches Tableturf Rank 50, for every 5th rank, they get rewarded 20 card bits. For every 100th rank and Rank 999, they get a fresh card pack and a badge.

Main article: List of Tableturf Battle rivals in Splatoon 3

There are thirty Splatsville and Inkopolis locals to fight in Tableturf Battle, each of whom wields a unique deck of cards. Each of these locals have 3 difficulty rankings: Rank 1, Rank 2, and Rank 3. When a new local is unlocked, only Rank 1 is available for the player to challenge. When the player has beaten a local three times at a particular Rank, the next sequential Rank is unlocked.

The Splatsville locals are comprised of "Baby Jelly", "Cool Jelly", "Aggro Jelly", Sheldon, Gnarly Eddy, Jel La Fleur, Mr. Coco, Harmony, Judd, Li'l Judd, Murch, Shiver, Frye, Big Man, "Staff", Cuttlefish, Agent 1, Agent 2 and "Clone Jelly". They are unlocked as the player increases their rank. However, if the player attempts to challenge any member of Deep Cut or the New Squidbeak Splatoon, including Cuttlefish, before completing Return of the Mammalians, the Staff will tell them that the character they wish to battle is not available.

The Inkopolis locals are comprised of Shelly, Annie, Jelonzo, Fred Crumbs, Spyke, Flow, Jelfonzo, Bisk, Pearl, Marina and Acht. Shelly, Annie, Jelonzo, Fred Crumbs and Spyke are automatically unlocked upon purchasing Splatoon 3: Expansion Pass, regardless of the player's rank. Flow, Jelfonzo, Bisk, Pearl, Marina and Acht are unlocked upon completing Splatoon 3: Side Order. If the player attempts to challenge a character which has not yet been unlocked, the Staff will have the same dialogue as for rivals involved in Return of the Mammalians; attempting to challenge Acht in particular will result in unique dialogue from the Staff where she claims to be unfamiliar with them.

There are additional requirements to be able to battle specific characters. Staff will tell the player that the character they wish to battle is not available if they attempt to challenge Sheldon, Gnarly Eddy, Jel La Fleur, Mr. Coco, Harmony, Murch, Shelly, Annie, Jelonzo, Fred Crumbs, Spyke, Flow, Jelfonzo, or Bisk without first having spoken to them. Idols are also unavailable in their hub of origin during a Splatfest. This means that:

Some player avatars holding a small spread of cards can be played against; they gather by groups of three to the right of Hotlantis and around the Battle Dojo. Each takes the form of a computer opponent using that player's deck. Beating them can award either 115, 130 or 150 exp, as shown before challenging them. AIs awarding 150 exp have a much more aggressive playstyle.

Version 3.0.0 made online play against other human players possible.

Remember the discovery of the Tableturf Battle minigame in our Splatoon 3 Direct? SRL here - we wanted to make sure this competitive card game didn't get lost in the shuffle, so to speak. Collect cards, build out your deck, and see who can ink the most 2D table turf to win!

Of course, Tableturf Battle is deeper than that, and we've discovered that an official manual exists! Nothing beats field research, but you can get a tentacle up by reading through the manual carefully before starting a battle. Did you even KNOW there are Special Attacks?

— @SplatoonNA on Twitter[8][9]




  • There are several Tableturf rivals that can change in appearance based on differing circumstances.
    • During Splatfests, Baby Jelly, Cool Jelly, and Aggro Jelly have their bodies colored to the teams that Shiver, Frye, and Big Man are representing, respectively, showing they are backing those teams.
    • If the player challenges Li'l Judd after completing Return of the Mammalians, he will don the same headset he wears while judging Turf Wars and Anarchy Battles, which there he also only wears after beating Return of the Mammalians.
    • Jelonzo wears one of four different outfits depending on the day of the week, just like when you visit him at Jelly Fresh.
    • Similar to Jelonzo, Fred Crumbs cycles between four different pairs of shoes depending on the day of the week, like when you visit him at Shrimp Kicks. However, since he is sitting in front of a table, it is no possible for the player to see this without camera hacks.
    • As with Jelonzo and Fred Crumbs, Jelfonzo wears one of six different outfits depending on the day of the week, like when visited at Ye Olde Cloth Shoppe.
  • All cards based off of special weapons share three characteristics: their area is exactly 12 spaces, their Special Attack cost is three points, which is lower than other cards of the same size, and they are the only cards to lack a Special Space.
  • There are only six cards in the base game that do not appear in any rival's deck: Sploosh-o-matic, Splash-o-matic, .52 Gal, Jet Squelcher, H-3 Nozzlenose, and Glooga Dualies.
  • CPU-controlled players that the player may choose to face appear holding the Tri-Stringer, Splatana Stamper, Smallfry, and Trizooka cards in their hands.
  • The music playing during Tableturf Battle is produced by Ancho-V Games.

Translation notes

  1. The word "region" comes from the Russian name of Turf War, which is "Бой за район" "Boy za rayon" (Battle for the region).
  2. A more literal translation is "Energized Card pack", but "Spritzig" is used throughout the German version of the Splatoon series as a translation for "fresh".
  3. The word for twins is specifically feminine here, directly implying they are islands (also a feminine noun, singular being une île) without using the word itself.
  4. From splitsen ("to split") and spritskoek ("cruller")
  5. From versnellen ("to accelerate") and snelweg ("highway")
