How To Play Chinese Chess (Xiangqi) For Beginners

Description

Chinese Chess (Xiangqi) is China's ancient game of strategy.

Played by millions of people, it is one of the world's most popular board games.

Players of regular (Western) chess will find Chinese Chess to be similar enough to feel familiar, while also different enough to be a distinctive playing experience.

Just like regular chess, Chinese Chess is a 2-player strategy board game, and the aim is to trap your opponent's King.

However, with a larger playing board and different playing pieces, Chinese Chess tends to be faster, more dynamic, and more tactical.

Chinese Chess is an amazing game which you can now learn for yourself!
