    Now, thanks to globalization, and the chance to communicate through social apps with people from all over the world, I believe we have another gentle soul, like Van Gulik, but for Chinese Chess. Today we are happy to introduce a new reviewer from Chess Today - Johannes Fischer. He is CT reader and sent us the following review recently. The main lines of this study are generally between 11 and 27 moves long!

    If you like the stuff you see, do give some encouragement by liking it! You can buy this book from Amaz on. This book contains many different things, including a number of chess variants, for instance Too Many Bishops. Springfrog's great version of this game uses Western pieces to make it easier to distinguish them, whilst keeping faithful to all of the traditional rules of Chinese Chess.

    And if you want books on changgi in English, you can forget it. It is fast paced, exciting, easy to learn, Chinese Chess book intriguing. That is to say they move by jumping two points horizontally or vertically, then one point at right angles to the first part of the move. I'm just wondering what xiangqi books people own. I did a similar experiment with great results. Chess has the same allocated place in the brain that we would have for Chinese Chess, hence we are not damaging one in favor of the other, we are keeping our connections alive, and functioning also when we need a break from chess as sport to avoid over-exertion!
