Square (スクエア Sukuea) is the place where Z/X and Z/X Extra cards are played located in the playing field.

There are 2 different type of Square, Normal Square and Player Square, with the latter also double as the place for Player Card. The playing field itself is composed of 9 Squares (2 Player Square and 7 Normal Square) in a 3×3 grid, further divided into 3 different area based on their position to the player—Army Area, Center Area, and Enemy Army Area.

Once a Z/X is played and put into a Square, it cannot be moved into another Square, except by a card ability. Most card abilities or effects affect Z/X in Square, and often specifically designates which Square it affects, either by mentioning the Square type or by using the Square Designation Diagram.
