There is room on the 8x8 FIDE side of the board to cut out squares of contact paper and make a 10x8 board.

Xiangqi is incredibly challenging and a lot of fun.  It had been difficult trying to teach people the game until I found this set with Staunton pieces.  I found it on eBay for $12 - and it includes Chinese chess, Korean chess and Western chess.  I've been getting a lot of use out of the set and think it is excellent quality, especially considering the low price.
