Bonus Cards[]

Double Cross is the first time The 39 Clues ever uses the "Bonus Cards" in an actual purpose (excluding the Replicator Cards, as they're already used). The "Bonus Cards" include:

  • Money-Use a Money Card to play any card on the table, even if it's covered up by another card.
  • Prestige-Play the Prestige Card to block your opponent from Sabotaging or Stealing. Both cards go into the discard pile.
  • Replicator-Play a Replicator as an Agent or Location of any color to start mission stacks or to retrieve a mission stack.


Double Cross's rules are sometimes similar to other card games, most notably Solitair.
