Except for cannon, pieces capture by replacement as they move.

Cannon is odd in that to capture, it must first leap
over an intervening piece of either color. Capture is then by replacement.

The biggest Chinese Chess board I've ever seen: 17.5" square. Unlovely, though: simple black printing on a piece of MDF (I think.) On the river is stamped "Detroit Chinese Culture Services Center.", and it's printed on the back for Wei-chi.

The pieces are nice, though. They resemble Mahjong tiles, although circular and with a clear layer in the middle.

With a 50% coupon, it came to $0.91.

Ancient abstract games still known today are still known today for a reason.
Now, this seems too obvious or already said? I don't think so. When we talk about "old" abstracts like mainly mentioned in this list, we talk about just some of many more, which were around, but not remembered.
When the rules of GO have not been modified for 3 - 4000 years, there is a reason. They are linked to something deeply human. A quality you will not find easily in a "modern" game, produced for a "market" or "target group".
I chose Xiangqi for this, because its rules are also known unaltered for over 1000 years. When you play it, you can feel its purity, its perfect balance, the philosophy behind it. Different from reading old texts or listening to "old" music you really SHARE the experience of playing the game, as people did 1000 years ago.

Here is a list of games that I think would be on a "real" all-time H-list. But unfortunately life didn't start before 2010.

Xiang Qi: My dad taught this game to me and I've played it with my grandpa. I'm not good at chess games, but I'm definitely way nostalgic with it. Its the one game I intend to teach any kid(s) that come my way.

Mahjong: My grandparents taught us the game. And its still one of my favorities. HKOS 3 point minimum. I even played it casually in college on rare occasions. In the architecture studio.

Tien Len: I learned this from friends in community college. We played tons of this game. Tien Len and Mahjong are two of my favorite games though I never get to play them because neither work particularly well in a game club / game night environment. They are a bit too light and flowy for a more cerebral crowd.

Cribbage: My wife (then girlfriend) and I discovered this game in 2008 or 2009 and we played the living daylights out of this game. Like the two previous cardgames its a great game that fits in that light great time waster niche that traditional card games settle into. However, I have to admit I'm not sure if I ever grokked the game, I have a nagging feeling that I'm a bit more at the mercy of the cards than I should be.

Ticket to Ride: This was our gateway game. I had played AH games years ago, but had somehow missed on the whole Catan thing. I had a slight mini-revival early in gradschool that was based in a MtG centric game store but I wasn't going to spend my life chasing MtG so that too died out. And so in the end I was aware of gaming but not really a gamer. But one day we bought TTR and 1910....and I suspect that we are at around a dollar a play for that set. I completely burned out on the game for a while, but recently I rediscovered it and after trying out some of the variants I have complete respect and love for the spartan elegance of the original.

Set

My first pics are a series from 2006 about my DIY XiangQi set:

I had earned some over the year before, though, by adding some games to the database, such as Liubo or Der Räuber Hotzenplotz.

This was the book with which I learned XiangQi (or Chinese Chess):
http://www.amazon.com/Chinese-Chess-Introduction-Ancient-Str...

The book gives you the basics and an overview of the different characteristics of opening, mid-game, and end-game (all in 105 pages). Plus: Exercise section with answers (55 pages) and a collection of games (83 pages, unfortunately not commented).

Taught Matthew how to play a few months ago and we had a rematch. I won (it was only slightly unfair that I have played hundreds of times).

After our game of Xiangqi Matthew challenged me to a game of international Chess...which he beat me in something like 8-10 moves.

1 play (NEW to me!)

At one Chess Club session, a leathery old Vietnamese man arrived asking for coaching help. He was told that this club was for kids, not adults. He still lingered in the back corner, and I approached him. He said his name was Mr. Nat, and he was a scholar who had read some articles about the similarities between Chinese Chess and European Chess. He was very familiar with the former (brought his teaching set with him), but wanted to learn the latter. He had learned how the European pieces moved, but wanted an experienced player to help him grok the strategies of European chess. I gave him my contact info for extra-curricular tutoring, but I've not heard back from him yet.

Anyway, he taught me XiangQi with his learning set. The pieces had been marked with their Western names, and their starting positions were marked on the board. Mr. Nat was either a rusty player, shy, or just humoring me because I won very quickly with a big push up the left flank.

I have always wanted to play Go with a native Asian, and I saw my chance. I asked if he knew WeiQi or Go. He did not. Maybe something got lost in our language divide, so I brought my goban out of my bag. At the sight of my goban, he literally turned red and ran away!!! I guess he has some bitter war memories connected to the game.
