Xiangqi in English.com is basically what it says it is ... learning, interacting and having fun with Chinese chess, in English that is.
Chinese chess or Xiangqi, is an ancient game that is deeply embedded in Chinese culture. Millions have played the game across Asia for the past few centuries. It is fast paced, exciting, easy to learn, and intriguing. But for those not familiar with the Chinese language, Xiangqi may seem daunting or even forbidding. I see no reason why the language barrier should deter those interested in the game from having fun.
Thus, this website was created to promote the intriguing game of Chinese chess to those who are interested but not familiar with the Chinese language.
I have added a fan's page on facebook where I will paste daily Xiangqi puzzles for your pleasure. Please click on the "find us on facebook" button below the menu bar.
For visitors new to the site, please go to the "What's New" section on the menu bar to see what I have added. I try to add to the site on a daily basis, and only take holidays off once in a blue moon... LOL!
