Battle Chess II Chinese Chess
- stock arriving soon
Battle Chess II: Chinese Chess follows in the footsteps of the original Battle Chess by taking the ancient game of Chinese Chess and setting it on a living battlefield. Instead of hand-moving pieces, players direct armed soldiers, each representing one of the game's traditional pieces. The game adheres to Chinese Chess rules so while the board is similar to European chess, pieces are placed along line intersections instead of in squares. The goal is still to capture the opposing king, still a potent offensive weapon. However, in Battle Chess II: Chinese Chess, a pair of advisors protects the king and to the side of each "vizier," is an elephant. Knights and rooks are similar to their European chess counterparts. At these front lines, players have five pawns and a pair of cannons.
