A Western Xiangqi Board. Proposal to play Xiangqi on a `westernized' board.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

Great idea! (for us westeners anyway)

Below is my actual rendition of this idea:

For the palace and the river, I'm using vynil strips (cut from a placemat), Seirawan Elephants for the Chinese Elephants, Orthodox Bishops as the Guards, and homemade Cannons.

For the Cannons I used drilled beheaded Rooks (I used the Rook tops to glue on Knights to make Chancellors).
