New Shop-front Coming Soon

Posted by Ricky Chua On 6:04 PM 1 comment
The current Sino-Games.com shop is not user-friendly, and I will be the first to admit it. 

We have been working on a brand new platform that is much much MUCH more user-friendly, and beautiful too!

Here's a sneak-peek of the work in progress. Hopefully we will have it up and running by next week!



Till then, are you 杀-ing like crazy of the Chinese New Year holidays?? 杀杀杀!!

1st SGS Gathering for 2012!

Posted by Ricky Chua On 5:45 PM No comments
Hiya folks!

Time to meet up to 杀! Yes it's been a while since the last meet up and I can't wait to meet you all for a game or five.

The details are as follow:

1st SanGuoSha Gathering of 2012

Date: 5th February (Sunday)
Venue: Settler's Cafe (Clark Quay MRT)
Time: 2:00pm to 5:00pm (Can be extended)
Expect to pay: $11.00 for 3 hours (Free-flow drinks)
*The cost is purely paid to Settler's Cafe. We make no profit out of these gatherings.

This time round, I will be bringing "Feng Sheng 风声" as well as "Cao Cao's Tomb 曹操墓" games for those who are interested to test them out.

Don't worry about not knowing anyone else. After a game or two, things go swimmingly! Just let loose and have some fun enjoying SGS and other games.

In order to cater for this event, I really need to ascertain how many people are coming. So please fill in the form below to register for this outing!

Hope to see you all then!

杀!!

Jia Xu 贾诩 (SP012)

Posted by Ricky Chua On 5:10 PM 2 comments

Translated Description:
“Never a strategy miscalculated 算无遗策(suàn wú yí cè)”

Who is he?
I remember it clearly when the celebrity Chinese scholar Yi Zhong Tian 易中天 (famed for his televised lectures of ROTK) said: “Jia Xu was probably the smartest character during the whole Three Kingdom era.” As an advisor, Jia Xu’s work experience seems to be a little complicated. He previously served Dong Zhuo 董卓, Li Jué 李傕 and Zhang Xiu 张秀 before finally joining Cao Cao 曹操. Then he served as an official in Wei Kingdom under Cao Cao's son, Cao Pi 曹丕. Despite his flip-flopping loyalties, Jia Xu was an exceptional advisor. Not only did he know what his ruler was thinking, he also knew what his enemy was thinking. He always considered every detail and possibility, then predicted what would happen next with uncanny accuracy. According to historical records, he never made a single strategic mistake in his entire life. In the last few years of Cao Cao's rule when the irate ruler became extremely paranoid, many great advisors were slaughtered, but not Jia Xu. In my personal opinion, this man really is a legendary figure. If you want to know more details about him, just check out Ricky’s write-up about him and find out!

Why is he an SP character?
Just as the other SP characters, he changed his allegiances in history. SGS decided to make an SP version of him to complete the whole story of the Three Kingdoms.

Character ability 1: “Unmitigated Murder 完杀 (wán shā)” [Enforced ability] 
During your turn, with the exception of yourself, only characters who are on the brink of death (health equals zero or less) can use PEACH 桃.

Character ability 2: “Descend into Chaos 乱武 (luàn wǔ)” [Single-Use Ability] 
During your action phase, your can force every player, other than yourself, to use an ATTACK 杀 on another player at the least distance away. If a player is unable to do so (no ATTACK cards to use or attack range cannot reach any player), the player will lose 1 unit of health. Recipients of the ATTACK need to use DODGE 闪 to evade. This ability will proceed in succession starting from the player on your right.

Character ability 3: “Behind the Curtain 帷幕 (wéi mù)” [Enforced ability] 
You cannot become the target of tool cards with the suit of "clubs" or "spades".

Additional info based on changes:
Nothing really changed except his allegiance and drawing. Well, this drawing does look better than the previous one, which is way too scary. However, lots of people think that his abilities should be changed after the change of his allegiance. His abilities do not support any of the Wei Rulers. Furthermore, Jia Xu never employed his “descend into chaos” ability again after joining Wei.

How to obtain this character?
He is not available on SGS online yet. For obtaining a card, purchase ZYZ magazine issue #12 (December 2011).
