Chinese Chess

Le xiangqi, aussi appelé échecs chinois (par opposition aux échecs occidentaux) ou littéralement échecs des éléphants, est un jeu de société combinatoire abstrait qui se joue sur un tableau rectangulaire de 9 lignes de large sur 10 lignes de long. Le jeu est également connu au Japon sous le nom de kawanakajima shogi (le shogi est un autre jeu d'échecs traditionnel au Japon, dont il existe aussi de nombreuses variantes).

Ce jeu se joue avec 16 pièces par joueur qui sont placées sur les intersections des lignes. Les deux camps sont le rouge et le noir (ou bleu). Une rivière, qui limite aussi les déplacements autorisés de certaines pièces, sépare les deux camps sur le plateau où figure aussi la position de chaque palais.
