The Prize Postcard is an item that appears in both Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks. They are mailed out in Postboxes to win various prizes.

Appearances

Phantom Hourglass

In Phantom Hourglass, Link receives the Prize Postcard from the Man of Smiles after defeating the enemies in his ship.

The Prize Postcard remains in Link's inventory until he puts it in a Mailbox. He can hold only one Prize Postcard at once, but can obtain more by revisiting him and beating the monsters again after mailing it.

It is always preferable that Link loses. The young hero will not win anything other than "Congratulations" and a "picture" that is not seen or used, but if "loses" he will obtain a random Ship Part as a consolation prize. The Postman will notify Link on whether he won or lost the drawing at any postbox.

This is one of the game features to rely on the internal clock of the DS system. The prize will be delivered at midnight according to the time in the Nintendo DS system.

Spirit Tracks

The Prize Postcards in Spirit Tracks can be purchased in some town stores. Link can place up to 20 of these on the mail to receive prizes, such as Treasures, when the internal DS clock hits midnight.
