Xiang Qi - Chinese Chess

Our selection of Xiang Qi, or Chinese Chess, sets.

Xiang Qi (Chinese Chess) is the most popular board game in the world. Played by millions of Chinese people every day, it is a traditional chess variant whose origins, like the whole Chess family, are lost in the mists of time.

Chinese Chess is an interesting game to learn and has a couple of twists that may come as a pleasant surprise to those familiar with modern European Chess. For instance, the General and his guards are not allowed outside the 'palace', the elephant may not cross the 'river' that separates the 2 halves of the board and the 'Cannon' can capture the enemy from any distance but only by jumping over an intervening piece...

All of our Chinese Chess Sets are of a good quality, suitable for beginners and Grandmasters alike.
