Transcript: The guards is also confined to the fortress. He moves one point diagonally. 5. The Chariot moves exactly like the rook in western chess: as many spaces as it wishes horizontally or vertically, until it meets another piece or the edge of the board. 7. The Foot Soldier moves one point forward. After it crosses the river, it may also move to the right and left, but never backward. Unlike the pawn in western chess, this piece captures just as it moves normally (see diagram). It does not promote upon reaching the far end of the board. 2. 1. The set up 6. The Cannon/Catapult is a peculiar piece. It moves exactly like the Chariot (or rook) when not capturing. But to capture, it must have a piece, friend or foe, in line to jump over. In this diagram, the Cannon/Catapult can capture the enemy pawn, as shown. It can not, however, move beyond that pawn, or to the unoccupied points A or B. The General moves one space at a time left, right, forward or backward. He is confined to the nine point fortress, on his side of the board. 4. Watch!! The Horse moves first one point along the horizontal/vertical lines, and then one point diagonally. Similar to the knight in western chess, but this horse can be blocked by an intervening piece. The horse in the diagram can not move to the points marked by the red X’s; it is blocked by the Black pawn. The object of this game is to force capture of the enemy Governor/General (King). This may be by checkmate (he is under attack and has no means of escape) or by stalemate (he is not under immediate threat, but there is no legal, safe move). Except for the Cannon/Catapult (see above), a piece captures by using its normal move, and landing on a point occupied by an enemy piece. The captured piece is removed from the board and the capturing piece takes its place. The Cannon/Catapult also takes the place of its captured piece, but must use one intervening piece, as shown in the discussion of its unique move. When the Governor/General (King) is being threatened with capture, he is said to be in “check,” and the player must move in such a way that the Governor/General is no longer threatened. If he can not, he has lost the game. It is not allowed to give perpetual check, or a perpetual attack. If the game is repeating its position, the player forcing the repetition must do something else. There is a special rule about the Governors/Generals. The two may never face each other on the same line across the board, with no intervening pieces between them. It is said that they may not “see” each other. This becomes important, especially in the end game, as the position of one Governor/General limits the movements of the other, and can “protect” a piece invading the enemy fortress. The River, which creates a space between the two sides of the board, is generally ignored — as if it were filled in with lines, completing a board of 9 x 10 points. It only effects the moves of the Elephants, who can not cross it, and the Foot Soldiers, who gain more power of move after crossing it. In tournament play, to begin the game, Red moves first. RULES!!!! 3. The Minister/Elephant moves exactly two points in any diagonal direction. This piece can be blocked by another piece on the intervening square (A and B in diagram) and is not allowed to cross the river, which runs between the two sides of the board.

Transcript: The Pieces It is illegal to repeat the same move(s) over and over to avoid losing. The board has two unique spots that are not on the western version of chess (the board that we use). The two spots are the Castle and the River. The Castle restricts the General and his two Mandarins from leaving it. The River does not allow the elephant to go through it but allows the soldier to go through. When the soldier gets past the river it is promoted and is allowed to move in one straight point or diagonal point. The Basic Rules By: 水 Sam The Board Chinese Chess (象棋) The pieces Introduction to Chinese Chess Pawns/Soldiers (兵/卒) can move one point straight forward except when it reaches the end of the river, which then it can move one point diagonal or straight. Players take alternate turns. In each turn, a player must make a single move with a single piece. If a piece ends its move on a square occupied by the opponents piece, that piece is taken off the board and permanently removed from play. Mandarin (士/仕) can move one point in any diagonal direction and can't leave the castle. Elephants (象/相) must move 2 points in any diagonal direction, can't cross the river, and can only reach seven points on the board. Chess was spread throughout the Islamic world until it reached China and the surrounding countries. After China discovered this game of chess, they decided to make their own version of it that is very similar to the Korean version. Also there are references that date back to the B.C.'s about Xiangqi. The object of the game is to capture the opponents General (which is the King in the American version of chess). The General (Red's is 帅 and black's is 将). Your objective in the game is to capture this piece. The General can only move one point in a non-diagonal direction. It also cannot leave the castle. History The Pieces Chinese Chess by 水 Sam It is illegal to move your General to a place in which it can be captured by the opponent. Horses/Knights (马/傌) can only move one point in a non-diagonal direction followed by a point in a diagonal direction. Cannons (炮/包) move just like a chariot except when capturing. When capturing a piece, it must leap over a piece of either color then proceed to the point occupied by the piece it is going to take. Chariot (车) can move in any non-diagonal direction. Moves just like a rook in western version of chess. Xiangqi, or chinese chess, is a really well known game in China. Xiangqi is played by almost everybody in China and is even played by people in most other countries.
