Xiangqi (Chinese: 象棋; pinyin: Xiàngqí) is a two-player Chinese board game in the same family as Western chess, chaturanga, shogi, Indian chess and janggi. The present-day form of Xiangqi originated in China and is therefore commonly called Chinese chess in English.

being played by approximately one billion people in China, Taiwan,and wherever Chinese have settled.
Having a long history, the modern form of Chinese chess was popular during the Southern Song Dynasty (1127–1279 A.D.).
The earliest record of a Chinese-chess game and a book on the theory of the game originates from that time.

象棋是中国传统的二人对弈棋类游戏。其他类似的有国际象棋及日本将棋。为与国际象棋等区别,又称中国象棋,主要流行于华人及亚太地区。是首届世界智力运动会正式比赛项目。

Each player in turn moves one piece from the point it occupies to another point. Generally pieces are not permitted to move through a point occupied by another piece. A piece can be moved onto a point occupied by an enemy piece, in which case the enemy piece is “captured” and removed from the board. A player cannot capture one of his own pieces. Pieces are never “promoted” (converted into other pieces), although the pawn/soldier is able to move sideways after it crosses the river.
