Chinese Chess. Play Xiang Qi, the Chinese form of Chess.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

I have updated the presets on this page to use the new fairychess settings file, which uses the new fairychess include file. I tested it on several completed games, and I tested illegal moves. It seems to be working fine. The advantage of this new settings file is that it will refer to pieces by name, and it will include a description of how a piece moves when it makes an illegal move. I changed the default graphics for this settings file, and I have left the old settings file alone. If you want to compare the old one with the new one, you will find the old one at

I have written a new settings file for Chinese Chess that uses the fairychess include file. It might be complete now, but I haven't taken the time to fully test it yet. You can find it at https://www.chessvariants.com/play/pbm/play.php?game%3DChinese+Chess%26settings%3Dfairychess.

Chinese Chess now supports the ability to display legal moves when you click on a piece.

For the GB and Big5 images, Why do the red pieces look white?

I have added some new customizations using the Alfaerie pieces with boards better suited for them. I have also changed the board for the Eurasian pieces to one based on the Eurasian Chess board.

Standard Alfaerie pieces are not suitable for the Chinese Chess board. If someone cared to make disc pieces with Alfaerie images, then those could be used for Chinese Chess.

Would be nice to have Alfaerie Graphics for this preset. This is my favorite graphics and I always select it when playing other chess variants here.
