E-Card (Ｅカード), as the name suggests, is a card game. Like Restricted Rock, Paper, Scissors it also has a psychological strategy to it and it also uses three card types.
The gamble appears in the Sakai Burai Kaiji: Death or Survival video game.
There are three cards used in this gamble:
- Emperor (koutei)
- Citizen (shimin)
- Slave (dorei)
The game is meant to be a simplification of society that Hyōdō Kazutaka refers to right before the game begins.
The Emperor has ultimate power to give money (ie. most powerful card). Citizens cannot disobey him because they want money (i.e. Citizen loses to Emperor). The Slave has nothing to lose and has no use of money, therefore the slave can defeat the Emperor (i.e. The Slave loses to the Citizen card but wins over the Emperor card).
The game is played with one side having four Citizen cards and an Emperor card (Emperor side). The other side having four Citizen cards and a Slave card (Slave side). Since it is much harder for the slave side to win (as Slave cards can only defeat Emperor cards) the players of the Slave side get five times more winnings. Each game is played with 12 matches each match having each player set down one card.
