Set of Xiangqi

2020-07-10: Been busy! The Unparalled Plum Flower Manual is now out. Have also added the clearance tactic to the midgame section. Also added the 1991 Baoren Cup King of Same Direction Cannons Xiangi tournament. Only the Same Direction Cannons were allowed to be played in that unique tournament. Unfortunately, there has not been any similar event. Added the Dreams of Divine Positions ancient manual.
2020-07-09: There were too many corrupt files in the 2006 A League Games and it wook me a few days to correct them and get them uploaded... Finally done! The 2005 A League Games were also uploaded a few days ago but I forgot to announce it here.
2020-07-04: Added several pages on endgame compositions, the longest puzzles the Webmaster can find, and endgame compositions in the form of pictures, Arabic numbers, English alphabets and Chinese characters. The beauty and ingenuity shown in the creations speaks for themselves!
2020-07-03: Added the earliest records of Xiangqi games still extant, way back about a thousand years ago in the Southern Song Dynasty. Also uploaded Extremely Brilliant Xiangqi Manual and Gems in the Satchet, two alleged ancient manuals but whose puzzles should benefit the beginner greatly. Please to say that there are about 500 pages on my site now, and definitely over 2000-3000interactive boards that have been uploaded. About the third of the original site has now been transferred.
2020-07-01:Finally finished redoing the section on Basics of Xiangqi opening, and uploaded all the commentated games that were uploaded in 2012, and also a short summary of CPC Openings.
2020-06-30: Finsihed uploading the ancient manual, the Invincible Xiangqi Manual.
2020-06-29: Finished uploading the entire Secret in the Tangerine Series. And also an Endgames Dictionary for rapid reference. The Big Four Endgame Compositions of all time are also out. The Gathering of the Seven Stars took me hours... which brought back painful memories when I did the same thing a decade ago... There are now about 400 pages on the site. Still about 2000 more to go before the site returns to its former glory. Have added some new features but will only produce a video when enough material is added. There still seems to be an issue with the IP which I have to wait till the next few days to resolve. If you do not add 'www' to xqinenglish, it would go to another link... Perhaps it was a bug that occurred when I transferred the site with help from a computer programmer. Will have to wait and see.
2020-06-27: Finished uploading the entire Elegant Pastime Manual and the 2003 A League games. But for some unknown reason, it has not shown on the latest articles list. Have moved about 300 pages from the old website and am organizing some of the old content, especially the daily puzzles from the early days into a more palatable format. Have also added an interactive feature to search for ECCO tags. Will make a video on how to use the site when enough content can be uploaded. Will try to upload a few more books over the next few days.
2020-06-22: The problem with the interactive boards has been rectified. And several new pages have been added.
2020-06-17: The Website has now been transferred to the the new IP address. There was an initial error where the boards would now show, but that problem has been rectified. Unfortunately, all the likes were lost... LOL. Anyways, please give me a thumbs up on Facbook! From 2020-06-17 today onwards, only major periodic annoucements will be mentioned. Please check the window on the right hand side of the page to see the new articles that I have added. The daily video uploads might be postponed a little bit as I need to add the old content.
2020-05-22:The boards that have been uploaded the past week are now out. Click here. After much deliberation and procrastination, I have decided to move my site to a new IP address the next month. Thank you for a great decade and I hope more will come. I will continue promoting Xiangqi, in English, as long as my body and mind permits. My IP will come only in early June, but the name of the website will not be changed. Thank you again.

2020-02-14 Happy Valentine's Day!!! Amidst the Covid 19 epidemic that we have now, we need some positivity to encourage the medical personnel working on the front-lines trying to identify new patients, contain the outbreak and treat new patients. Remember, it is but a disease, not a curse. The webmaster is a doctor himself and it has been very stressful the past month. Xiangqi promotion has to go on, but work has been especially tiring now. I am also well past 40 now and the body sometimes cannot catch up with the will. I am also in the midst of learning Joomla, as the this year would mark a decade of Xiangqi promotion, in English, with the website. I hope to move the website to another place to cut costs. I have considered placing ads in the past but somehow Google would not allow. Anyway, it has been a great decade and very fulfilling for me. Hope that there will be many more decades to go on.
