Enjoy this ancient Chinese game in the comfort of your living room or as the Chinese do, in a park or with your neighbours! Xiangqi (Chinese: ??; pinyin: xiàngqí; Wade-Giles: hsiang4-ch’i2; listen (help·info)), is a two-player Chinese board game in the same family as Western chess, chaturanga, shogi and janggi. The present-day form of Xiangqi originated in China and is therefore commonly called Chinese chess in English. The first character ? Xiàng here has the meaning “image” or “representational”, hence Xiangqi can be literally translated as “representational chess”. The game is sometimes called “elephant chess” after an alternative meaning of ? as “elephant”.
