About the game:
Three Kingdoms Redux is a board game that seeks to recreate the tripartite between the states of Wei, Wu and Shu. You assume the role of one of the three lords – Cao Cao leading Cao Wei, Sun Jian leading Eastern Wu or Liu Bei leading Shu Han. Players start the game from asymmetrical positions, reflecting the manpower advantages Wei enjoyed in the early part of the period. The weaker states of Wu and Shu protect themselves by forming an alliance. The make-up of the alliance may change as the game progresses, depending on the game situation after each round.
As a feudal lord, you manage the different aspects of running a state, such as domestic development, building up the military, gaining ranks and support of the people, constructing state enhancements, trading etc., whilst guarding your borders against both rebellious border tribes and external enemies. Managing each aspect well earns victory points for your state.
But beware, for the balance of power shifts constantly during the game. Understand and take advantage of the power shifts, and you will fulfill your grand ambition of re-unifying China!
