<i>Cai Qi</i> (pronounced <i>Tsai Tchi</i>) is a chesslike game, played on a circular board, invented by Patrick Hassel Zein from Sweden. On this page, you find the rules and illustrations. The game was formerly called <em>Chaturanga</em>, (while different from the original Chaturanga). Unless using the advanced rules (for magic and three or four players), there are 18 pieces per side.
