    I was just wondering if there were some players in the Etobicoke area? I would love to join the group but sadly getting out to Markham is difficult for someone whose only source of transportation is the TTC.

    Don’t spend money. The rules, as well as some English books can be downloaded for free from See the the “Xiangqi Books in English” link at the top of our left nav.

    Hi Tam,

    I’ve asked around – we don’t know of any English-language training software. Here’s a set of basic videos in English. You can find other resources, including free English language books, at Let us know if you have more questions.

    To whom it may concern,

    I was wondering if you have any Chinese Chess training software that I can buy, in English version. I’m just new in this and I need help. Thanks so much for your time.

    Best regards,
