Xiangqi in English.com is ... learning, interacting and having fun with XiangQi aka Chinese Chess, in English that is. Content is added very frequently and there are now over 2000 pages ( as of Jan 2014), sharing the basic and finer points of the game.
Chinese Chess or XiangQi, is an ancient game that is deeply embedded in the 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.
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. And do give me a "LIKE" for encouragement!
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 at least five days per week, and only take holidays off once in a blue moon... LOL!
From June 2016 onwards, I have added a youtube website also showcase the Xiangqi videos that I have done. The aim is simple, hopefully you can get to watch a match by a player you like while taking the bus or waiting...
