Emperor and the Mongols

This game is the exact Xiangqi equivalent of Maharaja and the Sepoys.


Same as Xiangqi for the Mongols.  One Emperor in his palace for the Emperor.


Emperor- Moves as a pawn, Elephant (when on own side), Cannon, Chariot, Horse, Advisor or General (when in palace, to other palace square for both G and A)


The game ends when one side's royal piece is captured.  All other rules are the same as in Xiangqi,


Should be simple.
