Being hardboiled = Skill

Putting XiangQi here I think of surprising attacks, even if you are absolutely about to lose, but the opponent is so self-assure about this he oversees your possibilities with your double-cannon (check XiangQi rules for this ), and you got him by his balls. devil

You could put Chess, Go and Shogi here as you could do with virtually any other game without any luck-elements.

This is my home-made board with carved lines and a nice river ... The pieces are also with carved pictures, so it`s more easy for beginners or children to recognize them.

204 BC (based on BGG database). XiangQi has a long history. Though its precise origins have not yet been confirmed, the earliest indications reveal that the game has been played as early as the 4th century BC in China.

XiangQi is a two-player strategic Chinese board game in the same family as Western chess, and is known as Chinese Chess because of its origion in English.

XiangQi is one of the most popular board games in the world. However, the BGG Supercomputer only ranked it #2 behind Go, a position it would hold for many centuries until modern Chess took its spot in 1475.

I bought some "ordinary" ones with plastic or paper board to customize them, beacause I was not convinced by this "cheap solution". So I made myself a nice wooden board with graved lines (look at the representative image) and graven pictures of horse, cannon etc. on the back of the original pieces, filled with oil paint, so it`s easier to teach this incredible game to children or young people in the youth centre I work:



I really like my solution for the picture for the "general" (in the middle)- it`s just an eye. Reminds everybody of the "forbidden view"-rule and maybe of sauron`s lidless eye ;-).

So, after all, I own 4 sets and different boards, some with letters and numbers (to make notes or replay old games out of books), some with the pure lines on it.

Finishing off my Asain-themed offerings we have Chinese Chess. Excellent condition, all pieces present. The version I have uses modern military equipment like tanks and jeeps instead of Chinese characters, so it's perfect to learn on. US shipping only.

Also at the same store, a brand-new 'Chinese Chess kit' for 5.99, which included a rule-sheet, board, and plastic pieces (still on sprues). The pieces are 2 sided, with Chinese characters on one side and pictures (elephants, etc) on the other. Also in the kit was a 125 full-color page book on rule details, strategy, and a complete played game. I learned to play Go this past year and I've always been curious about Chinese chess, so I was pretty happy to snap this one up.

In modern times more often played on inexpensive paper-"boards", but that`s the same with Shogi and others.

My only 10.

The only game in which I miss nothing.

Compared to Chess (another GREAT GAME!:
- Bigger (90 points instead of 64 squares)
- better (more original movements, surprising twists, rules not changed for a thousand years. And the cannons! And the deadly view from the generals! And ...)
- faster (oh yes, no dull pawns stand in your way and you are right in the middle of gaming!)
- more (played by the most people in the world, more fun!)
- cheaper (build your own set for almost nothing)

Compared to all the modern stuff:
Wait another thousand years, and we`ll see, what`s still here.

Boardgames open your mind. They let you think in other directions as usual. Make you let some symbols into your mind, some culture, some ancient witness you had otherwise never any connections to.

They broaden your possibilities of understanding.

I have to admit, that it`s not only my favourite game of all because of its qualities, but probably, because it`s not mainstream at all, too.

When I teach it to people, they get interested in the background about something absolutely new and hard to get; the XiangQi gamers in Germany are few, so I can feel myself inside an exclusive „Club“ to share something „anti-mainstream“. That`s one more reason why I prefer it to chess.

Maybe another reason is, my wife studied sinology and I stayed with her at Taiwan for a while. She brought the first XiangQi set back home from a trip through China, so it`s the personal story behind the game, too ...

Robert deNiro is XiangQi.

Highest quality for a long, long time.

Depth combined with expression, furiosity and tension.

They change from a second to the other from good to bad to I don`t know what.

They keep their mysteries. They`re open but you never quite understand what`s going on.

Both are my favourites.

Over 1000 years old in its current form, with origins back to the 4th century BC. Possible the game with the most players in the world and a lot of ancient literature. World championship matches are quite interesting.

(For people who don`t know it yet: Faster and far more open than chess (90 points for 32 figures instead of 64 squares), a river in the middle, a cannon that captures jumping over one other figure, a general with guards who cannot leave their fortress - quite a difference to chess and IMHO, better)
