As the reader of this geeklist may already know, we have developed a new board game by the name of Three Kingdoms Redux. It is based on the three kingdoms era, focusing on the states of Wei 魏, Wu 吳 and Shu 蜀. The rules have been posted, artwork is ongoing, many pictures have been shared, and we expect manufacturing to take place in 2014.

We have placed a lot of importance on capturing the historical theme in Three Kingdoms Redux. Besides tying the game mechanics to the various historical aspects of the three kingdoms era, as discussed in a previous geeklist, artwork is another avenue via which theme was enhanced.

We have already presented the illustrations of some of the generals in a previous geeklist. Besides generals, various items and inventions of the three kingdoms era also play a vital role in Three Kingdoms Redux. These are referred to as state enhancements in the board game.

In this geeklist, we share with you 12 of these state enhancements' illustrations and describe the historical background of each. We have done much research and requested our artist, Ray Toh, to draw them in a historically accurate manner where possible. It is worth noting that there are a total of 42 state enhancements in Three Kingdoms Redux, split into two equal decks, namely the Separation 分 and Unification 合 decks.

For the curious readers, the two decks' names were inspired by the first line of the Romance of the Three Kingdoms novel:
"天下大勢,分久必合,合久必分。" which means "All great powers reunify after long periods of division, wane and break up after long periods of unification."
