What's New on Xqinenglish.com?

I have decided to add this to the menu bar because I have daily additions. However, because the scope of my project is so big, I cannot possibly upload everything I want in a short time. Besides, visitors to my site have different needs and wants. Beginners would want more basic stuff while more advanced players would want to know more about the different variations of certain openings. And others just want to know what is going on in the World of Xiangqi. As I have no time to install a RSS feed, this is the next best thing I can do. 
In the event that my online server breaks down, that is, you do not see anything new on this page for over 24 hours, please go to my facebook fanpage for further notifications.
Lexicon of Xiangqi Terms in English
Available since June 2017. The first ever Lexicon of Xiangqi Terms in English.


Hi dear friends and visitors, please help to fill in the short questionnaire. It is a very important study by my German friends Mr. Martin Berger and Mr. Wang Ge to study the behavior of Xiangqi players, especially non-Chinese ones, but all are welcome.
Thanks in advance!

2018-12-28: This post would be the last one in 2018. Again, it has been a hectic year for me with Xiangqi. The site has finally hit 2500+ pages and still going strong. It is quite an achievement that I am proud of, as I have never expected the site to last so long.
Yet for Xiangqi, there is still so much to do! Wishing all a fruitful new year ahead!

Have also archived the 2018 "what's new" here or go to the Master Archive section that can be found in the tool-bar.
Again, please support the site by telling friends about the books that I have written, for they provide the only source of income (meagre) to pay for monthly maintenance bills required.
2018-12-24: Another new publication! The ancient manual Plum Flower by Wang Zaiyue! Thanks to all!


This picture was provided by Dr Rene Gralla. Xiangqi is everywhere!
 It is a scenic venue at the Yu Garden in Hamburg, Germany. It is a replica of the original in Shanghai. Dr. Rene Gralla (left) and Mr. Li Feng (right) from Confucius Institute (CI) Hamburg try out the innovative XiangQi scenario with figurine pieces in 3D whilst being watched by Ms Min Zhou (center left) - she is the wife of Mr. "Romeo" Zhong Xue who is the Spokesman and General Coordinator of the European XiangQi Federation (EXF) - and Ms Wu Yin (center right) who teaches Chinese language at the CI Hamburg.
