Chinese Culture Courses
Chinese chess, also called Xiangqi, is a strategy board game for two players. It is one of the most popular board games in China. The game represents a battle between two armies, with the object of capturing the enemy's general (king). This course will demonstrate the basic rules and features of playing Chinese Chess, for example, the cannon (pao), which must jump to capture; a rule prohibiting the generals from facing each other directly; areas on the board called the river and palace, which restrict the movement of some pieces (but enhance that of others); and placement of the pieces on the intersections of the board lines, rather than within the squares.
