Czech China Club invites you to its Xiangqi event. Xiangqi, or Chinese Chess is a strategy board game for two players. It is one of the most popular board games in China,
The game represents a battle between two armies, with the object of capturing the enemy’s general (king). Distinctive features of xiangqi include the cannon (pao), which must jump to capture; a rule prohibiting the generals from facing each other directly; areas on the board called the river and palace, which restrict the movement of some pieces (but enhance that of others).
We will go through the game history, rules and finally, we will play it.
Entry is free.
