The game-changer. The 20% that makes the 80% irrelevant. Every player sweats buckets when his neighbour suddenly equips the ZHU GE CROSSBOW, and for good reason. This weapon allows any character to use as many ATTACK 杀 cards as they like in their turn. I have seen entire rounds end within 3 minutes of game-play thanks to this weapon. When your opponents have this equipped, pray that Gan Ning 甘宁 is on your side to use DISMANTLE 过河拆桥 on it. If this weapon falls into the hands of Lu Meng 吕蒙, it's about to start raining blood! Be very very afraid!!
Attacking range: 1
During the action phase of your turn, you can use as many ATTACK cards as you wish.
Characters that match this weapon best:
Many many characters match this weapon very well. People who have a multitude of ATTACK cards such as Guan Yu 关羽 and Zhao Yun 赵云 are especially lethal. But the most dangerous character to have the ZHU GE CROSSBOW is Lu Meng. Lu Meng is always a freaking time-bomb waiting to go off, and the ZHU GE CROSSBOW is just the spark it needs to ignite the blast. My personal experience playing in a game of 8 players is Lu Meng keeping quiet with almost 20 on-hand cards. Once he draws this weapon from the deck, he unleashes a string of over 12 consecutive ATTACK cards. Wiping out the player on his left first, then going straight for the RULER 主公 two places to his left. Despite a bunch of DODGE 闪 and PEACH 桃 cards that temporarily saved the RULER, the sheer number of ATTACKs blasted away whatever defense and rescue the RULER and LOYALISTS 忠臣 had. The round was 45 minutes in without much drama, then it was all over within 2 minutes in the hands of Lu Meng. The same danger is possible with Zhen Ji 甄姬 when she's on a lucky streak and draws a string of black ATTACK cards, but that is mostly up to luck.
