Chinese Chess- by H.T. Lau
Explained with clear examples and 170 diagrams are the fundamental aspects of Chinese chess- the rules, the board and the basic moves and values of the pieces. After teaching the basics of the game, Lau goes a step further, instructing readers in tactics, methods for getting out of trouble, and cunning strategies for winning. Also included are eighty mid- and endgame exercise designed to sharpen playing skills. The book concludes with two appendixes 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.
