A nice addition to the weapons, the ANCIENT SCIMITAR is available only in the Battle Expansion Pack 军增包. Supposedly belonging to Sun Jian 孙坚, who was the father of Sun Quan 孙权, the exact ownership of this weapon is still somewhat uncertain. Nonetheless, ever since this weapon has been introduced into the San Guo Sha 三国杀 card game, I have witnessed many players dying at the hands of this blade. If I had my way, I would rename this blade "The Punisher", with reference to the added damage its victims receive if they were not disciplined with their card usage.
Attacking range: 2
[Enforced ability] When your ATTACK 杀 causes damage to your victim, the damage is increased by an additional 1 unit if he or she does not have any cards on hand.
Characters that match this weapon best:
The card-demolishing character Gan Ning 甘宁 works best with the ANCIENT SCIMITAR. First use DISMANTLE 过河拆桥 to remove all the on-hand cards of your target, then finish it off with ATTACK for +1 unit damage. Though Pang De 庞德 is also a card-demolisher, he is not as good a match as Gan Ning. This is because for Pang De to demolish an opponent's card, he needs to use an ATTACK card. This means he cannot use another ATTACK card in the same turn to exploit the Ancient Scimitar's ability.
On the other hand, it is very useful to have this weapon equipped when your team-mates are card-demolishers. Having Gan Ning, Pang De or even Si Ma Yi 司马懿 on your side can help empty an opponents on-hand cards while you move in for the kill afterwards. Pay attention to who your team mates are and this weapon can be a brilliant asset!
