Proposal to play Xiangqi on a `westernized' board.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]Rich Hutnik wrote on 2008-08-17 UTCI have several comments: 1. I believe Seirawan and Harper forbid their pieces being used for any other purposes but Seirawan chess. I happened to get into an ugly email correspondence over this. They want their pieces ONLY used for Seirawan chess. I will say that one could put a second queen in there instead of the Bishops, and use the Bishops to replace the elephants, and it should be ok. 2. I personally would rather not have a big X through the forts on the board. But, that would be your choice. I guess if everyone wanted to use it for just Chinese Chess, it might make sense though.
