Sangokushi Taisen (Japanese: 三国志大戦) is hybrid physical and digital collectible card game for the arcades. It is a real-time strategy-based game set in the Three Kingdoms period of Chinese history and the Chinese novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms.

Gameplay system[edit]

The game itself has an input system in which cards are placed on a sensitive playing area. Movement in-game is done by moving the cards on the playing field, and card behaviour on the battlefield depends heavily on the card type.

This game is played one-on-one and online play is available.

New versions add balance adjustments, more cards, more factions and more modes.
