Place cards face-up and verticalljy in the trash zone.
You may place them in a cascading fashion to tell which cards you have in the trash zone to make the gameplay smoother.

Battle

If an opposing Servant is occupying the area you want to move to,
battle will commence between your attacking Servant and the opponent's defending Servant in that area.

Battle will happen between the Servant (Attacking Side) who is trying to take over the area and the Servant (Defending Side) who is occupying the area.
