Descrizione prodotto


Learn the ancient and fascinating game of Chinese Chess with this expert guide.

Chinese chess, or "elephant chess," has intrigued the powerful and the quizzical for centuries. Although its rules are similar to the well-known Western game, subtle and fascinating variations must be mastered in order to understand the strategies it requires. A great way to learn Chinese Chess, this book is simple enough for Chess beginners but contains a wealth of information and tips that experienced players will find useful as well.

In Chinese Chess, author H.T. Lau explains the game's fundamentals—the rules, the board, and the basics with dozens of insightful diagrams. With the aid of 170 diagrams, Chinese Chess walks players through the board, the movement and values of the pieces, basic rules for capturing and defeating an opponent, techniques and game winning tactics. Once he's covered the basics, Lau introduces advanced tactics, methods for escaping difficult positions, and cunning strategies for winning.

This book includes eighty mid- and end-game exercises designed to sharpen playing skills and strategy, and concludes with two appendices devoted to the elegantly constructed games found in The Secret Inside the Orange and The Plum-Blossom Meter, two classic seventeenth-century works on Chinese chess.

2.0 su 5 stelle Sadly, this seems to be the best book in English on this subject 1 febbraio 2015

I was looking for a good book that could change someone who knows how to move the pieces into someone who knows how to move the pieces purposefully. This book is not it, but I also haven't found a better one either. Still, I will score it against an ideal that may be published later, rather than inflating its score because of the lack of alternatives.

The main problem is that this book does not really attempt to distill any understanding of the game in principles and demonstrate those principles with game examples. That is my idea of how a book teaching a game should approach its goal. What we have here instead is a bunch of move collections.

The book starts with the obligatory introduction to the game, its appeal, its rules, and the game notation. It next proceeds to openings where it quickly goes through the most important opening variations - just the moves, no theory or much commentary beyond who's doing better at the end of a variation. Next we jump to endings, which describe the material, the outcome, and then show the moves leading to the outcome, but again, with no higher level description of the tactical approach. The book ends with a collection of middle game problems followed by their answers. Then there are two important appendixes that contain the game collections from two classic old XiangQi manuscripts - moves, variations, no commentary - these account for about a quarter of the content. That is basically it. You're not really being provided with any insight, although, of course, you could derive some from studying all the material, but it's really up to you; the author has not bothered to provide you with much help besides collecting that raw material.

The only thing this book teaches you well is the game notation and how to read games. That is a useful skill, but I was hoping for much more. This book may become more useful perhaps once a really good introduction becomes available, so you can get back to it and play through the variations once you have a better understanding of the game. Otherwise, you can learn just as much about XiangQi (and probably more) by getting a XiangQi software app and playing through its collection of games and problems, and against the software itself.

Although the steps and information are easy to follow and can be used while playing, the pictures of how to set it up to what it looks like are so small on my Kindle that I can't recognize which character goes to which piece. I am a bit disappointed that this illustration can't be enhanced to a larger size. But, if you are just reading for strategy, it is an excellent book.
