Game is not bad... But just as a game, because IT'S NOT XIANG-QI VARIANT!! It's just CHESS variant, wich uses ONE piece from xiang-qi and variant of this piece!! If there would'nt be game with same name, this could be called 'Chess with cannons'!!

You may have a narrow conception of what constitutes a Xiang Qi variant, one which I don't share. This game counts as a Xiang Qi variant, because it is based on Xiang Qi, and it can be played with the same equipment. The idea behind this game was not to introduce cannons to Chess but to westernize Chinese Chess.
