Xiang Qi or Chinese Chess is the most popular board game in the world. Played by millions of Chinese people every day, it is a traditional chess variant whose origins like the whole Chess family are lost in the mists of time.

Chinese Chess is an interesting game to learn and has a couple of twists that may come as a pleasant surprise to those familiar with modern European Chess. For instance, the General and his guards are not allowed outside the 'palace', the elephant may not cross the 'river' that separates the 2 halves of the board and the 'Cannon' can capture the enemy from any distance but only by jumping over an intervening piece...

Our board is a stylish article that comes in two sizes. The dark-wood box houses moulded trays for display or storage. The folding board comes in an exterior box that is wood covered in leatherette with metal handles and catches. Basic rules are also included.

Usually Chinese Chess sets are very basic with flat round pieces. The Xiang Qi pieces in these sets are of a much better quality and are most unusual - each piece is metal in detailed 3D shapes of the figures they represent - horses, chariots etc. One side is coloured to antique copper and the other to a pewter appearance.

These sets make a fascinating and surprising gift for any chess or board games lover. For those who are already familiar with Xiang Qi, the superior pieces should make a welcome change and literally add another dimension to game play!

Contains small parts. Not suitable for children under 3 years.
