Three Kingdoms Redux boxart

Three Kingdoms Redux (Sānguó dézhì 三國得志) is a board game that seeks to recreate the tripartite between the states of Wei, Wu and Shu-Han. You assume the role of one of the three lords – Cao Cao leading Wei, Sun Jian leading 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.

As a feudal lord, you manage the different aspects of running a state whilst guarding your borders against both rebellious border tribes and external enemies. Managing each aspect well earns victory points for your state.


Three Kingdoms Redux is played over a number of rounds, up to a maximum of 12. Players bid for various actions with their general tokens. The highest bidder of each action space obtains the right to carry out the actions.

These actions allow players to improve your state’s domestic development, gain military strength, construct state enhancements, increase popularity with your people, improve relationships with border tribes and gain promotion for the lord, to the next higher rank.
