'This game counts as a Xiang Qi variant, because it is based on Xiang Qi,
and it can be played with the same equipment.' So, you want to say that
games, wich adds R+N and B+N compounds on 10x8 or 10x10 are not FIDE chess
variants, because they cannot be played with FIDE chess equipment? Your
Eurasian chess is perfect, it's idea is to make game, wich have equal from
chess and XQ and chess, and this idea is perfectly fulfilled, but Yang-qi
is supposed to have more from XQ, but it's much closer to western
Also, it cannot be played with XQ equipment, it have more pawns. I can
suggest to use only 5 pawns, and, to make possible protecting pawns with
other pawns possible, give them non-capturing sideways move (initially, NOT
after crossing river). It also will give more XQ feeling. They may be
placed on opening positions of XQ pawns, but, i think, better is to put in
frontof knights pawns, wich are in front of bishops, as here knights are
stronger than cannons, and it's not good if cannons would be able to
capture them on first moves...
