Knock-Out Match is an alternative game type used in Super Smash Bros. Battle Cards. The objective of this game type is to get enough points before your opponent by Knocking Out their Smashers (6 Points is the general number used). For each Prize card you would of drawn, you get a point (so you get 2 points if you Knock Out an Ex Smasher). Because this game type doesn't use Prize cards, whenever you Knock Out any of your opponent's Smashers, you draw a card from your deck (2 if you Knocked Out an Ex Smasher).
There are various ways that allow you to win:
- If you have enough points from Knocking Out (6 Points is the standard used) your opponent's Smashers enough times.
- If your opponent has no Active Smasher at the end of their turn.
- If your opponent has no cards left to draw from their deck at the beginning of their turn.
It's possible to achieve multiple conditions at once. If both you and your opponent have reached the Knock Out total at the same time, and are drawing in points, check to see if any of the other conditions have happened. If both you and your opponent have reached the Knock Out total, but your opponent has no more Smashers left in play or has no cards left in their deck, then you win. If both both players have reached the Knock Out total at the same time, but one of the players has a higher Knock Out total, that player wins.
If the match turns out to be a draw, a new match in Sudden Death can be played. The same rules for Standard Match apply for Sudden Death, expect both players only have to Knock Out 1 of their opponent's Smashers instead of the usual amount.
