3-Player Mode Rules
Play Again With the Same Partners
- When playing Multiplayer Mode, players cannot purchase Magic Stones at the continue screen.
- In a dungeon, the player who receives a Game Over can choose whether or not to continue. *Players will have 30 seconds to choose whether to continue or not.
- A Magic Stone will be used when players continue after receiving a Game Over.
Multiplayer Dungeons work in much the same fashion as regular dungeons–You will receive dungeon rewards (a Magic Stone from the initial clear, coins, experience points, dropped eggs, etc.) for clearing the dungeon.
The amount of Stamina used to enter the dungeon will be awarded to players as Monster Points and 2x the amount of Stamina will be awarded as Pal Points.
*The amount of Monster Points and Pal Points awarded will not change even during an event that halves Stamina.
With the exception of One Time Only Dungeons, all Technical Dungeons, Special Dungeons and Coin Dungeons are playable as Multiplayer Dungeons. If your friends are busy, you can attempt to challenge these by yourself, or if they’re tagging along, you can give them a “Nice” stamp!
Multiplayer Dungeons also have a unique feature to them. Floors with your partner are taken in turns–meaning that as a player, you can take the opportunity to “Pass”. This can only be done once.
*Passing will not waste turns.
*After using “Pass” once in a battle, you will be unable to use it again, even after using a Magic Stone to continue.
*In order to play Multiplayer Dungeons in multiplayer mode, a player must be of a certain Rank, as described below.
*When playing a Multiplayer Dungeon in multiplayer mode, players cannot buy Magic Stones at the continue screen.
*Multiplayer mode in Multiplayer Dungeons is not supported on the following devices:
iPod touch (4th generation)
Android Devices with OS 4.0 and lower
*For more details on Operating System requirements, see our original announcement: http://on.fb.me/1ZL7SH9
How to Play (When Inviting a Friend)
*Note: In order to create a Room in Multiplayer Dungeons, players must be Rank 10 or higher.
1. Navigate to “Multiplayer Dungeons” from the Dungeon Menu, then press “Create a Room (Room ID)”. Choose the dungeon you want to play.
2. Share the 8 digit Room ID number with your Friend!
3. After your friend finishes preparing, press the “Play” button and enter the dungeon. Before pressing the “Play” button, you can change your team by flicking left or right.
4. You can also choose if you want to publicly advertise your Multiplayer Dungeon room to your Friends. After choosing a dungeon from the “Create a Room” option, you can now choose the option to “Share your Room.” If this option is chosen, the your Friends will be able to find your room from the “Find a Friend’s Room” menu.
*If the “Share your Room” option is not chosen, the room will not be displayed to a player’s Friends.
How to Play (When Invited by a Friend)
*Note: In order to join a Multiplayer Dungeon Room, players must be Rank 10 or higher.
1. Navigate to “Multiplayer Dungeons” from the Dungeon Menu, then press “Enter a Room ID”. Input the 8-digit Room ID you received from a friend.
2. Your team and your friend’s team will be displayed. Press the “Ready” option and wait for your friend to enter the dungeon. Before pressing “Ready” you can change your team by flicking left or right.
Reconnecting in Multiplayer Dungeons
If you happen to disconnect while playing a Multiplayer Dungeon with a friend, you can reconnect to the dungeon within a short period of time.
1. If your connection is lost, the message, “Connection to server has been lost. Retry connecting?“ will appear.
2. Pressing “Yes” within the allotted time will reconnect the player to the Multiplayer Dungeon. The board, the team’s HP and the enemy will be the same as they were before the disconnect.
*It is advised that players do not open new apps or close Puzzle & Dragons while reconnecting. These actions may impact player data.
*Both players will be forced into single player mode and will be unable to reconnect if any of the following conditions occur: the connection does not improve, the phone enters sleep mode, the allotted time to reconnect expires, the app is closed, or the device is forcefully shut down.
Dungeon Rules & Details
*Both players use the same board when inside the dungeon.
*The player who created the room goes first. After that, the enemy has a turn, then the invited player has his or her turn. The turns continuously cycle from that point onward. If the enemies are defeated by one of the players, the other player begins the next cycle of turns.
*Each player’s turn lasts three minutes. After the three minutes expire, the player’s turn is forfeited, and it will automatically become the enemy’s turn.
*In the dungeon, the team’s HP is the sum of both players’ teams HP. When playing 1 Player Mode, the total HP will be the sum of your team of monsters only.
*If you use skills like “Recover Bind” on your own turn, the effects will influence your friend’s team as well.
*If one player quits the dungeon, the remaining player will be switched to 1 Player Mode. It is not possible to re-enter a room at this current point in time.
*After entering the dungeon, if either player’s game or phone goes into sleep mode, or if either player quits the app, the connection between players will be cut. Both players will then go into 1 Player Mode.
*While in a Multiplayer Dungeon, leader changing skills cannot be used.
*Note: Players are able to spend magic stones to continue in Multiplayer Dungeons.
When playing multiplayer mode in a Multiplayer Dungeon, players cannot purchase magic stones at the continue screen.
The player who made the room can choose whether or not continuing is possible.
If the players decide to continue, a magic stone from the player who created the room will be consumed.
After continuing in multiplayer mode and going into 1 Player mode, the player who created the room and used a magic stone to continue will be able to continue playing the dungeon with control over both players’ teams. If players enter 1 Player Mode without continuing, they will continue battle with just their own team.
*Please keep in mind that the events and rules listed on this page may change without notice.
*All images and data displayed are in development and may be adjusted if necessary.

Android: You can purchase Magic Stones through the payment option displayed on the Google Play Store (for example, together with your payments to your credit card/network companies). If you have any payment-related questions, please contact Google for support.
Can I change the time setting on my device?
Changing the time setting deliberately may cause issues with game data, and it may even result in a corrupted account. If the game data becomes corrupted, we are unable to restore it, including the items you may have purchased. Please refrain from changing the time setting on your device.
Note: It’s OK to change the time setting to adjust to the correct time.
Is the content of the game different depending on my operating system, or which app store I download the game from?
The content of the game is the same across all platforms, but there may be slight differences in the movements and controls of the puzzle.
The game may also have somewhat different content and events based on the region (NA, Japan, Korean, EU). Please make sure to download the correct version of P&D for your region, or we may not be able to offer support.
Are there any prohibited actions in P&D?
All actions which serve to progress the game unfairly by using illegitimate means are strictly prohibited. This includes anything that goes beyond the originally intended and implemented game systems. The following list of examples is not exhaustive, but serves as a good example of prohibited actions.
- Intentional exploitation of in-game bugs
- Trading, buying or selling of game accounts
- Modification of the app
- Use of illegal third party programs
- Client/packet modification or editing
- Impersonating Puzzle & Dragons Official Facebook, Admin, or related companies
- Any other acts deemed inappropriate by the operations team
Such activities will be dealt with strictly. This may include a permanent suspension from the game and the complete deletion of game account data.
Additionally, any user who is not directly involved with these activities but is found to be directly associated and actively benefiting from them will be treated the same as a user who originally performed those actions.
Thank you for your cooperation.
I seem to be the only one who doesn’t see the Limited Time Dungeons.
The Limited Time Dungeons appear at different times for different users. That said, all users get an equal amount of Limited Time Dungeons to keep the game fair for all users.
The Dungeon labeled ½ Stamina requires more than ½ Stamina.
The Dungeons that are labeled ½ Stamina already display the halved amount of Stamina that they require. Please be advised that the Stamina will not be divided in half even further.
Special Dungeons and Event Dungeons aren’t showing up.
Special Dungeons and Event Dungeons are different from standard Dungeons in that they aren’t always available. Please check the official event page to find out the schedule for these special event Dungeons. Also, if the time setting of your device is incorrect, the Dungeons may not properly display.
My Stamina suddenly decreased.
This may result from changing the time setting on your device. Please make sure your device is set to the correct time. Changing the time setting deliberately may cause issues with the game data. This may result in corrupted game data. Please refrain from manually changing the time setting on your device.
Can I delete all in-game messages?
Yes, you can select the “Delete All” option to delete all in-game messages excluding your saved messages and unread messages.
Can I protect in-game messages?
Yes, you can protect in-game messages by opening the message you wish to save and tapping on the “Protect” button. Once you save a message, you will not be able to select the “Delete” button, and it will not be deleted even when you select the “Delete All” option. Please “Protect” your important messages.
I can’t add Friends even though I have space on my Friends List.
The user you are trying to add as your in-game Friend may not have any open slots on his/her Friend List. Also, there’s a chance that you are sending more Friend requests than the maximum number of Friends you are allowed to have at the time. In such case, you will not be able to add more Friends.
Can you become in-game Friends with users who play on different OS’s and who have downloaded the game from different app stores? [Ex: iOS (App Store) <-> Android (Google Play Store); Android (Play Store) <-> Android (Amazon App Store)]
Yes, you can become in-game Friends with users who are playing the game on different operating systems, and you can also use the Friend Gift Exchange feature with them. The content of the game is the same across all platforms, although there may be slight differences in the movements and controls of the puzzle.
How do I change my in-game name?
You can change your in-game name by following the steps:
1. Select “Others” from the bottom menu:
2. Tap “Change Name”
3. Enter your new name, and tap “OK”
What is a Secret Code?
The Secret Code is a unique identification code that is meant to confirm that you are the primary user of a game account. It is CRUCIAL that you do not share this information with anyone as it could greatly compromise the security of the game account.
To check your Secret Code, tap Others>Support>Display.
What is an ID?
A unique ID is assigned to each game data. The ID represents the game account you use, and it is an important piece of information that is required to search Friends and receive support from the operations team. To check yours, tap Friend>ID Search and note the 9-digit number labeled “Your ID.”
Will a game data be deleted if it stays inactive for too long?
We perform regular maintenance on the servers and delete inactive accounts as they can take up tremendous space and put a burden on the servers. If game data fits the descriptions below, they may be subject to deletion.
If a game data fits the following 3 descriptions, they will be deleted:
1. The app hasn’t been launched in over 3 months.*
2. A Magic Stone has never been purchased since the account was created.
3. The game data is below Rank 6.
※Even if the app is launched, if it doesn’t communicate with our server (ie: entering a Dungeon), it may be subject for deletion.
Please be advised that a game data cannot be restored once it’s deleted.
Can I backup my game data to a different device or OS?
Backup data from one device to another (same OS):
iOS: You can backup and transfer your game data from one iOS device to another iOS device by using iTunes or iCloud’s features. Please click here for more information.
Android: You can backup and transfer your game data from one Android device to another Android device by using your Google account. Please click here for more information.
Device change (across all OS’s):
You can transfer your P&D game data from one device to another—whether they’re running on the same or different OS’s—by using the “Device Change” feature. (Ex: iOS<>Android).
To transfer the game data, you will need the “ID” and “Device Change Code” of the data you wish to transfer. The Device Change Code is only effective for one week from the time it is issued, so please transfer your data within this time period. Please click here for more information.
The login bonus didn’t update.
The login bonus is given out at different stages, so the number of days you need to log in to get the bonus isn’t always fixed. Also, please note that the timing in which a message appears indicating that you have received a login bonus may differ from when you actually receive the bonus.
Finally, bonus in-game messages are not always received exactly at 12:00 AM. You may receive the message as late as 4:00 AM the following day.
The screen froze and I can’t control anything.
Please reboot your device and restart the app.

I can’t add a Monster to my Team.
Each Monster has a “cost.” If the total Team Cost exceeds the maximum cost your game data is allowed to accommodate at the time, then you will not be able to add them. You can check your current total cost by going to “Monster”⇒”Team Edit”⇒”Team Parameter,” so please compose your team of Monsters that are below your maximum cost.
I pulled the Egg Machine, but didn’t get a Monster.

I don’t see the Monster that dropped.
The Monster that you defeated may have dropped an Egg that contained the pre-evolved version of the same Monster.
I ranked up, but my maximum Stamina and Cost didn’t increase.
When you rank up, one of the following parameters may increase: Stamina, Cost, Friend slots. Please note that your Stamina doesn’t increase every time you rank up. Once your available Friend slots reach 50, they will no longer increase when you rank up. You may use Magic Stones to purchase additional slots.
