Chinese Chess Engine

Okay, so few people in the West have heard of Chinese Chess, or Xiangqi, but trust me, it’s pretty cool. It doesn’t have as many Pawns, and there is a piece called the Canon that can only take if it jumps over another piece on the way.

I’m wondering about making a chinese chess website, to play online. It’s a bit trickier – chinese chess has a 9×10 board (not 8×8), so bit boards will be more complex.

But I might give it a go, building an engine. I think I have the guts of it worked out, although I’m concerned about efficiency…
