Dodge 闪 (shǎn)

Posted by Ricky Chua On 8:08 PM 6 comments
Dodge! Duh!! When someone uses an ATTACK 杀 card on you, use this card to prevent suffering damage. Used to best effect by making a silly face at your attacker right after you use the card. Neh neh ni bu bu~

What it does:
Do you really need me to spell it out for you?! Dodge! Evade! Get out of the way!

How to use it:
When an ATTACK is used on you, use this card to dodge the attack immediately. In 99% of cases, you will not get to use this card during your turn. (Interested to know what is that special 1% scenario? Click here.) In certain cases, ATTACK can be dodged without the use of this card. This happens when you have equipped EIGHT TRIGRAMS 八卦阵 or when you play the role of RULER 主公 using Cao Cao 曹操. Follow the links for more details.

Special abilities:
Probably the only instance when the DODGE card can cause damage to a player is when Zhang Jiao 张角 uses it when he is attacked. Everytime Zhang Jiao uses DODGE, he can choose to use his "Lightning Bolt 雷击" attack to inflict 2 units of lightning damage to any player of his choice! Follow the link to read more about Zhang Jiao.

Against conventional logic, the DODGE card might be the most frustrating card to draw from the deck! The reason is the more DODGE cards you draw, the less options you have in that turn. This happens because you cannot actively use DODGE during your turn since you are not under attack. This problem is compounded when you use a character that has an advantage with less or no cards on hand, such as Elder Zhu Ge Liang 诸葛亮, or Lu Xun 陆逊. Since you cannot choose to discard cards if your number of cards on hand is equal or less than your amount of life points at that moment, you will likely be stuck with DODGE cards at the end of your turn!


  1. Huang Zhong doesn't have an advantage with less or no cards on hand. His ability is activated when the number of the on-hand cards of his Attack target is 1) more than or equivalent to the unmber of his health points or 2) less than or equivalent to his Attack range. So Huang gets the advantage when HIS TARGET has less or no cards on hand, not him.

  2. Sorry, what does this have to do with Huang Zhong?

  3. Princemousey: I already made the changes. Previously i had Huang Zhong up there after Lu Xun.

  4. Can Dodge 闪 (shǎn)be used to dodge damage from Player A's Attack 杀 (shā) which is reflected to you from Xiao Qiao???

  5. No. Xiao Qiao transfers the damage itself. In her case she didn`t dodge the ATTACK by herself, which led to dealing damage, but she reflected the received damage to another player. To understand it better, just imagine that her skill is somewhat similar to Voodoo ritual - when the caster deals damage to a doll, the real victim cannot avoid it. Or refer to the ability of Vasil Hawkins from One Piece :)

    Her sister Da Qiao, however, switches the target of the opponent`s ATTACK. In her case you can use DODGE to avoid damage.
