All Card Carnival trials solutions in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth

When you reach Costa Del Sol in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth, you will quickly realize that Cloud and the crew aren't exactly dressed for a relaxing vacation at the beach. All that leather and black certainly won't be comfortable -- and don't get us started on how much sand is going to get in those boots. Before you can even set foot on the sand to relax by the water, Cloud will need to earn some tickets to get more appropriate beachwear. The only way to earn these tickets is to participate in some team minigames, including the Card Carnival on the docks. This is a twist on the Queen's Blood card game you may have been playing throughout your adventure up until now (or perhaps you've been completely ignoring it). Either way, this game is not your typical match, with specific challenges that are more like puzzles than proper games. They can be rather tricky, so we'll help you play your cards right to beat the initial set of Card Carnival trials and earn that swimsuit.

Card Carnival solutions

You initially only need to complete three challenges in the Card Carnival, but more will be available if you really want to test your problem-solving abilities. We will focus on just the ones required to complete this challenge.

Three-Card Stud

The first challenge is called Three-Card Stud and gives you -- you guessed it -- three cards to place with the objective of beating your opponent's score. Here is what order to place the cards and where:

Step 1: Place the Fleetwing on the bottom-right tile.

Step 2: Place the Zu card on the top-left tile.

Step 3: Place the Quatzle in the center tile.

You should win with a score of 5-4.

Go for Choco-Broke

Next up, we have a Chocobo-themed challenge. Order is very important in this one, so pay close attention.

Step 1: Put the Fat Chocobo on the bottom-left.

Step 2: Place the Posh Chocobo on the bottom-right.

Step 3: Finally, the Chocobo and Moogle go between them in the bottom center.

You will win with a score of 17-16.

Mischief-Making Moogles

The final challenge is the most complex. You start with three cards, but gain two more when you play the Moogle Trio, so you need to plan ahead here. Or, just follow our steps.

Step 1: Start by playing the Moogle Trio on the far left in the middle row. You will draw the Moogle Mage and Moogle Bard cards.

Step 2: Play the Fleetwing in the center space.

Step 3: Put the Moogle Mage in the bottom-center space.

Step 4: Now place the Moogle Bard in the top-left space.

Step 5: Finally, end with the Grasslands Wolf in the bottom-left.

You will win with a score of 11-6.

All Chocobo Gear in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth
Chocobo Gear

Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth gives chocobos perhaps their biggest role in a mainline entry ever, as you'll be using them to traverse every region of the game. Not only do their special abilities help you navigate the world, but various pieces of gear that you can purchase for them can ensure they look good doing it. Even better, this gear aids your chocobo in races so that you stand a better chance at placing in the top spot. Here's all of the Chocobo Gear in the game and how you can round it up.
All Chocobo Gear and how to get it
Most Chocobo Gear can be purchased at tack shops, which are primarily located around chocobo stables. As you progress through the game, new pieces of gear will become available at any tack shop, so you won't need to backtrack to get fresh pieces. Keep in mind, however, that there are some pieces that can only be earned by competing in chocobo races at the Golden Saucer.

To purchase Chocobo Gear, you'll need golden plumes. These are primarily earned from finding and repairing chocobo stations throughout each region, though you'll also get one when catching new chocobos while progressing through the story.

Pirate Chest

Upon reaching Chapter 12 of Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth, you'll notice a pirate chest on the dock at Costa Del Sol. Interacting with it grants you a map and an objective to set sail on the Tiny Bronco to find four pirate relics. Combining them all will earn you a useful accessory that will improve your treasure-hunting capabilities on the high seas, so we recommend tracking them all down.

Note that in addition to finding all four of the pirate relics, you also need to take on a boss encounter at each location that is likely to test your mettle, so be sure you come prepared. When you're ready to get started, check out the pictures below for the exact locations of each pirate relic.

All Driftwood locations in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth
Cloud from FFVII

As you make your way through Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth, you're sure to discover that there are a wide variety of sidequests to undertake. One of these in the Junon region tasks you with tracking down and eventually working with a Wainright. This fellow asks you to fetch him some materials to aid in a job — Driftwood to be specific — and then sends you off with a map that may or may not look a bit confusing. Don't worry, though — you won't need his shoddy map when you use our guide below.
All Driftwood locations
To obtain the piece of Driftwood at each spot on the map, wait until your chocobo has a question mark above its head, then hold Up on the D-pad until the location is revealed. Ride your chocobo over to the revealed location and press Down on the D-Pad to dig up the Driftwood.

There are three pieces of Driftwood you need to find if you'd like to get a 3-star rating in the quest, which is worth doing since it will earn you extra rewards. When you're ready to track down all three pieces, you can take a look at the photos below for the exact locations.
Driftwood No. 1
The first piece of Driftwood can be found in the northernmost area of the region.
