On the drive home earlier, I was hoping to hit a couple of shops, but could only get to one, as the other was closed at 3:00. Sorry for the inconvenience, the sign said. Sure, like a sign can have any empathy for a human. Don't try to kid a kidder.

The other shop had nary nothing, except for a XaingQi set. It has fantastic wooden pieces. Diameters larger than a loonie, carved symbols, maybe a tad sloppy with the paint but still quite nice. It also comes with a craptacular plastic sheet of a board. Which makes the game quite portable, but still, sheety plastic is a drag. I'll need to replace that...

$2. Salvation Army Thrift Store.

Arriving in Taiping, Malaysia we headed out in the evening to get ourselves orientated. We passed a Chinese restaurant (the majority of restaurants in Malaysia are Malay-Chinese owned) and spotted two guys playing XiangQi. We wandered over to watch and I managed to get a bit of a game in as we chatted away to these guys. The game peetered out and they moved on to helping us see the city. Then commenced a drive around the city streets at night which unfortunately provided fairly useless the next day as we couldn't work out where anything we'd seen was!

Still, I was pleased to have played some real XiangQi. I still have a lot to learn, most notably the characters and their movement.

We later saw XiangQi players depicted on a temple wall in Kedah province, Malaysia. It was an unusual temple being entirely surrounded by Palm Oil plantations and the only access is via plantation tracks, no major roads for a few kilometres.

We saw more XiangQi played throughout Cambodia, this picture from Kampung Chnnang on Tonle Sap lake.

I started learning some XiangQi in Vietnam where we've seen XiangQi played every other Coffee shop along the road. We literally see a coffee shop on average every 50 metres through the Mekong river Delta. We must've seen 1000 games of XiangQi being played along the way. Inevitably I ended up picking up the courage to try the game. We stopped at a coffee shop for a refreshing drink around midday and I sat down next to an empty board. This caused some considerable interest and I was soon surrounded by a dozen Vietnamese and sitting opposite me was someone who professed to be the #1 in Vietnam (unlikely but amusing nonetheless). I was repeatedly crushed but I think I learned alot.

Days later we stopped at another coffee shop with three active tables and a pile of others stacked in the corner. The shop owner challenged me and we had some reasonably close games though I wasn't able to press any of the advantages I managed to wrangle, with the tide turning late in each game.



Kathryn taught the owner's son to play Spit! which had him laughing for twenty minutes as he learned and played the game. It was nice to share something so different with these game loving people.

complete, although the rules are in Chinese…
wooden pieces, board is a flimsy piece of plastic (think plastic shopping bag), case is cheap plastic — talk about portable though!

Chinese chess--along with Shogi and Western (International) Chess, is one of the Big Three in the family. Some say XiangQi is the most-played board game in the world.

Played with my dad and grandpa. I don't really like chess, but this game feels more fluid and no doubt nostalgia helps me enjoy this game.

If you go to your local Chinatown, you can probably pick up a set of this excellent abstract that'll easily fit in your pants pocket.

I was heading out to games night on the weekend and I dropped by a Value Village on the way there.

I saw this in a hanging baggie (in a box with Chinese (?) characters, no English at all) and I thought the wooden pieces might be fun for my kids to play with.

The pieces are solid wood, about 2 1/4" x 3/4" and are in excellent condition.

The 'board' is not quite a board. It looks to be tracing paper that has been folded several times to fit in the box.

Don't know if I'll ever learn this or teach it to my kids, but the pieces are quite nice.

$3.99 at Value Village

Unusual find for me, although I noticed someone else found a copy this week -- Chinese Chess with a wooden board and built-in drawers for the pieces.
