by Sam Sloan

The best book ever written for learning the world's most popular game.

When you think of chess, you problably think of the strategy game played throughout Europe and the Americas. There is another kind of chess played throughout the world by more people than any other strategy game. This game is Chinese Chess. The ``Elephant Game'', as it is called by the Chinese, dates back more than 2,000 years. A cousin of Western chess, its unique style of play results in a wide-open, quick-moving, and aggressive contest.

Chinese Chess for Beginners explains both the rules and the strategies of the game clearly and in detail so that you can start playing right away. It covers everything from the opening through the endgame. It also includes paper chess pieces that you can cut out to begin playing immediately.
