Chinese Chess

Xiang Qi, also known as Chinese Chess, is an ancient two player game and a simulation of war. The aim of Chinese Chess is to capture the enemy’s general. In ancient times, it was classified as the art of Chinese scholars and officials, and was used to refine battle strategy. 

Distinctive features of the game include a rule prohibiting the generals from facing each other directly; areas on the board called the river and palace, which restrict the movement of some pieces; and placement of the pieces on the intersections of the board lines, rather than within the squares.
