At the start of each Pure Shoujo game each player receives a hand of one card plus one for each character they are currently playing. In addition, each time the dice roll a match the player who rolled it may draw a card. If they rolled 1 and 1, the player may give the card to another player, who must take it, if they rolled a 6 and a 6, they may draw two cards and choose which one they keep. Each of the cards indicates an action or change in relationships which fulfills the card:
