About this Course

Chinese Chess (Xiangqi) is China’s ancient game of strategy. Played by millions of people, it is one of the world’s most popular board games. Players of regular (Western) chess will find Chinese Chess to be similar enough to feel familiar, while also different enough to be a distinctive playing experience. Just like regular chess, Chinese Chess is a 2-player strategy board game, and the aim is to trap your opponent’s King. However, with a larger playing board and different playing pieces, Chinese Chess tends to be faster, more dynamic, and more tactical. Chinese Chess is an amazing game which you can now learn for yourself! This course is taught by Nathan Rose (Author of “Chess Opening Names”) - a native English speaker and international chess enthusiast.  The lessons regularly highlight the differences and similarities between Chinese Chess vs. regular chess… but even if you don’t know how to play regular chess, this course will teach you Chinese Chess - absolutely no prior knowledge is assumed. In this course, you will learn:

How to setup the board

All the pieces, and how they move

The rules of gameplay

Basic strategy - including opening moves, development, and tactics

How to avoid the most common beginner mistakes

… and, you can download a “Cheat Sheet” to remind yourself of the most important principles while you play

This course offers everything you need to play your first game of Chinese Chess (Xiangqi). Ready to get started? Enroll Now, and let’s begin!
