Security (Japanese: セキュリティ Sekyuriti) is an area on the playing field that contains cards which act as a defensive wall that protects the player from attacks. A player loses the game when a successful attack is made against the player while the player has no more security left. The cards in a player's security are hidden to all players, but the number of cards in a player's security should be known to all players.
