One of the fastest ways to improve your game is to train your thinking and ability to visualize kills on the board. If you have not been through the section of Basic Kills, please do so.

From 2011-2016, the Webmaster uploaded puzzles on a daily basis to Facebook. At last count, there were at least 3000 puzzles of varying difficulty. Much effort was made to ensure that the puzzles did not overlap.

Due to time constraints, the Webmaster has not been able to keep uploading puzzles. Luckily, various Xiangqi groups on Facebook have filled the void. There are many puzzles that are posted by different Xiangqi lovers everyday.

Puzzles loaded to Facebook in the last decade

Upon moving the site to this new IP, the Webmaster has decided to the puzzles that were uploaded to Facebook almost a decade ago.

Since the site has moved to a new IP, the Webmaster spent a few days arranging and categorizing the puzzles that can be tried based on the degree of difficulty. Some of the puzzles were lost when some files were lost but there vast majority of the puzzles can still be found.  Take your time, be patient and do not cheat.
