Great! I’ve learned it’s a very dynamic game. Not so deep as chess and shogi but exciting in it’s on way.

Played this the last time a couple years ago with my dad. Enjoyed it alot more than chess.

Thanks Richard, two games in two weeks!
I intend to add western pieces to Adrians’s BiggerGolem addon, not sure yet what pieces to use.
I like the simple design of
what do you think (have to check if I can use this or redraw it) ?

Maybe easier is to use the Wikimedia Commons ones :

I right now add some new designs. But design from Caroll is better.

Firstly, thank you Richard for all the new games recently :) Loving it!
Question: before Carroll and I go to the trouble of manipulating the SVG for the Xiang’qi board to add the new piece set that he posted to BiggerGolem, is there a reason you avoided using his? Licensing issues, etc? Because if you plan to add his piece set as a supported one anyway, I will probably avoid the hassle of adding it to BiggerGolem, since it seems there is a very good variety otherwise.
But if you are intentionally avoiding it for licensing reasons or somesuch, then I will go ahead and add it to BG :)

Carroll’s design (2nd) is already implemented and will be online in next update of software.

It’s awesome news! I already invited some friends to play.
Could you perhaps consider implementing janggi (Korean chess) as well?
It’s quite similar to xiangqi and it has many fans too.

Btw is it possible to create a separate shogi forum?
Shogi has big community, but still incomparably smaller than chess and the posts gets kind of lost.

Carroll: I would love to have the western style pieces. The real pieces are somehow hard for me to internalize.
Carroll at 2017-11-23
You have them already, Richard put 6 different design schemes (button lower right), designs 4 and 6 are with western pieces.
I have enhanced the last one, it should be updated in next release.
