73 - Like Shogi I have dabbled but not really explored this enough. I have already seen enough to love and enjoy this and want to explore it more. Wish the pieces were shapes like chess rather than Chinese characters but that is a short term problem.

The "action" happens a bit sooner than in chess and the Cannon and Chinese chess knight have interesting spacial elements to them that are not present in western chess. The pieces with restricted movement (defenders) give more theme than chess has as well as serving interesting defensive value.

With Super Scrabble in hand, I went to browse the books, where I discovered one of the most surprising finds in all my years of thrifting -- a comprehensive XiangQi textbook, written in Chinese!

.


We have a great many ethnic Chinese folk in this region, one of the greatest concentrations outside of mainland China and the world's great Chinatowns (I understand it's because the climate is much like China), but still one hardly expects to walk into a Goodwill store in Mayberry NC and find a Chinese book about Chinese chess!

Paperback books are only 75 cents at that Goodwill, which I paid with a big smile.

Xiangqi is an interesting one. It has most of the same moving pieces as Shatranj, but with the added cannon pieces. This is a piece that moves in a very unique fashion in that is can only capture by jumping another piece.

Also the elephant which moves only 2 spaces diagonal and is restricted to half of the board.

Also another interesting feature of this game is the King and his counselors are all confined to the fortress, a small 9 space area.
The counselors move just like Shatranj or Makruk, just that they are stuck in the small space.

Another thing is that the generals cannot face each other.

Well, lots of things to make this one unique and interesting. I enjoy this one occasionally.

No gaming while in China, but yesterday we just visted my mother in law's old apartment while she was growing up. The plus was that it as really close to the world famous West Lake. The minus...really really small.

The view from the street. Conveniently, its the brown building. There is a restaurant on the ground floor. The apartment is now technically empty, (a few of the dishwashers let us upstairs) but a few of the cooks are now squatting the space, which is why my interior shots were fairly hurried and not too detailed, out of respect to the guys living there.


Here's a view of their north window from the little alley between buildings



The view out the second window (also showing you the location where I took the photo looking north). My mother in law used to climb out onto that roof and grow plants there as a kid.


From that same position right next to the second window, here is the view towards the north. You can see the north wall if you peek past the curtain on the right side. The kitchen (and restroom facilities) were downstairs in a communal setting.


And this place housed 8 (eight) people - the folks on the left of the photo, great-grandma, her husband, great-great ma and pa, with my mother in law and her brother sitting on their laps, and my mom in law's two older sisters sitting on the floor. (The woman to the left, her child in arms, and the two children sitting on the floor to the left are great grandma's brother's family, but he was out on assignment at the time)

Eclectic. This has been long missing from my collection. Played this ages ago in a computer game and found it an interesting diversion from chess. Most importantly, I was missing a game starting with X for which I can buy a micro badge, as I have at least one for each letter of the alphabet. So in essence, a completionistic purchase after all.

I happen to be in Shanghai and came across this set for $30, handpainted in a nice wood case. I'd seen these in EBay in the past but shipping was too much. I got the one with the figures shown in the photo. They're pretty cool looking resin figures with a bunch of monkey king dudes on one side and evil witches on the other. Eclectic.

Well, the astute among you will have noticed that we don't, technically speaking, own this game. However, what I do own is a reasonably well-appointed woodworking shop in my garage. It's fair to say that by November or December of this year, we will own it. Maybe not a NICE copy, but a reasonably-priced one.

Update 12/11/16-

We did not actually own this game when we made the list, as noted above. Brad made a beautiful set himself. Nice, thick wooden pieces with hand-painted icons. A thick felt board. All just in time for the end of the year and one play... in which Jen declared it "too much like regular chess" to ever want to play it again! cry To be fair, she did warn Brad, and he did go into this knowing she is terrible at abstract strategy in general, and chess in particular. And it isn't that she hated it-- just that as abstract strategy goes, she would much rather play The Duke or Hive. But if there is a choice between this and traditional chess, she probably would pick this one; the pieces move in an interesting way, and there is at least a (very) small chance that she might surprise Brad and win!
