The game of Chinese Chess (called "Elephant Chess" in China) has been played for centuries, and is one of the most popular board games in the world. In Chinese Chess, author H. T. Lau explains the game' s fundamentals- the rules, the board, and the basic moves and values of pieces-with clear examples and over 170 diagrams. Once he's covered the basics, Lau introduces basic tactics, methods for escaping difficult positions, and cunning strategies for winning. The book also includes eighty mid- and end-game exercises designed to sharpen playing skills, and concludes with two appendixes devoted to the elegantly constructed games found in The Secret Inside the Orange and The Plum -Blossom Meter, two classic seventeenth-century works about Chinese Chess.
