Chinese chess (Xiangqi) is a strategy board game for two players, which has almost 2000 years of history. It has the same numbers of pieces of chess that move with similar rules, and its board is also 8 by 8 columns. On the other hand, all of the Chinese chess pieces are flat and marked with Chinese characters on them, which is essentially the most significant difference from the three-dimensional chess figures.

 

“C. Chess” is a Chinese chess set that can also be played as chess. By using the similarity, users can simply assemble the figures to switch between the two games and using the same board. It is a symbol of how different cultures can be merged together.
