After 15 years of playing chess, I now indulge myself in Chinese chess. However, I do not know the tactics very much, just the movements of the pieces which I learned from ItsYourturn.com. I find it to be an interesting alternative to chess, whenever I want to stray away from it. It is not that different from chess, in fact the Knight and the Rook move the same way. Nevertheless, the King, Bishop and pawns move differently. And there is another piece which is not in chess, the Cannon. It moves by jumping one piece (friends or foes) and landing on the next piece. For chess lovers, do try Chinese chess.
