Legends of the Three Kingdoms (Sānguóshā 三国杀) is a Chinese cardgame based on the Three Kingdoms. The rules come from the world famous card game Bang!. The cardgame uses simplified Chinese.
Sanguo sha can be played with 2-10 players, with each player picking 1 of 4 roles, which are:
- Lord (主公) (only 1 per game)
- Loyalist (忠臣)
- Rebel (反贼)
- Spy (内奸)
The role determines your playing style, but also your victory conditions:
- Lord: Survive and kill all the rebels and spies.
- Loyalist: Aid the Lord in surviving and killing all rebels and spies.
- Rebel: Kill the Lord
- Spy: Kill all the spies, rebels and loyalists, then kill the Lord.
The game ends when the Lord is killed or when all rebels and spies are killed.
