Xiangqi 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.
With Chinese Chess Elf for Android, you can play against a computer opponent right on your device. The game represents a battle between two armies with the object of capturing the enemy's "general" piece. Distinctive features of Xiangqi include the unique movement of the pao ("cannon") piece, a rule prohibiting the generals (similar to chess kings) from facing each other directly, and the river and palace board features that restrict the movement of some pieces.
