Must see!!! Chess Vs Chinese Chess (Xiangqi)

Chess Variants – Synochess by


  1. This was very interesting to watch! Some of the movements of the xiangqi pieces were weird (didn't apply by xiangqi rules) but I understand it must be hard to fit the pieces onto an international chess board. Very cool!

  2. The elephant can only move diagonally I think

  3. Why cannons leap without capturing ? Just like korean Cannon ?

  4. I think the white pieces didn't play well enough; and if red plays first, then the "white pieces" should be black

  5. So….. The cannon could checkmate the king on 1st move after White mistake? 👀

  6. In the Chinese chess, the elephants is used for defense, not for attack
