Xiangqi

Xiangqi is a two-player Chinese board game in the same family as Western chess, chaturanga, shogi
and janggi. The present-day form of Xiangqi originated in China and is therefore commonly called
Chinese chess in English. The first character Xiàng here has the meaning "image" or
"representational", hence Xiangqi can be literally translated as "representational chess". The game is
sometimes called "elephant chess" after an alternative meaning of as "elephant".
Xiangqi has a long history. Though its precise origins have not yet been confirmed, the earliest literary
reference comes from the 9th century.
Xiangqi is one of the most popular board games in the world. Distinctive features of Xiangqi include
the unique movement of the pao ("cannon") piece, a rule prohibiting the generals (similar to chess
kings) from facing each other directly, and the river and palace board features, which restrict the
movement of some pieces.
