There are 23 generals, including the lord, for each of the states of Wei, Wu and Shu in Three Kingdoms Redux, i.e. a total of 69 generals. The generals’ various attributes carry the main game mechanic of bidding, while the generals’ skills add lots of replayability to the board game.
Prior to starting on the artwork, we researched on every general included in the board game and picked a scene from either the Records of the Three Kingdoms (historical text) or the Romance of the Three Kingdoms (novel based on Records of the Three Kingdoms and other folk stories) for each general. This scene was then recreated by our artist, Ray Toh, on the general’s card.
This illustration booklet reproduces each general card’s illustration and explains the story behind the depicted scene.
